Last Updated: 02 May 2022

Skin pigmentation disorders impact the shade of your skin. Your skin obtains its shade from a pigment called melanin. Special cells in the skin make melanin. If your body makes way too much melanin, your skin obtains darker. If your body makes inadequate melanin, your skin obtains lighter. Albinism is a hereditary condition influencing an individual's skin. An individual with albinism might have no shade, lighter than normal skin color, or irregular missing out on skin color.
