3. Sunscreen prevents hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation is the darkening of the skin. Hyperpigmentation can be caused by various factors. However, the biggest cause of hyperpigmentation is sun exposure. When you are exposed to the sun, it triggers the production of melanin. When too much melanin is produced, it causes the skin to darken. Some of the different types of hyperpigmentation that can occur due to sun exposure are melasma, sun spots, and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
