Melanin is the pigment that gives human skin, hair, and eyes their color and the level of melanin production can vary drastically from person to person. Skin of color has higher levels of melanin, which makes hyperpigmentation more prominent in skin of color compared to fair skinned individuals. Any skin condition, whether it be acne, scars, keloids, melasma, vitiligo, or rashes, can present very differently in skin of color due to these higher levels of melanin.
