What is Dark Skin?
Dark skin may be something natural which a person was born with, or it may develop in later stages of life due to hyper pigmentation and other factors. There are people who deliberately want dark skin to acquire a tanned look. But fair complexioned people are mostly afraid of dark skin. The quantity of skin pigment melanin is higher in dark skin than what is found in fair skin. This additional amount of melanin is also responsible for patchy and blemished skin.

Symptoms of Dark Skin:
There are a few symptoms by which the appearance of dark skin can be identified. The principal symptom of dark skin is formation of blemishes or dark patches on blackish or dark brown skin. There are other symptoms as well, like appearance of marks and scars over the skin. The most common symptom of dark skin is when the skin changes its color to brownish to blackish.

Causes of Dark Skin:
As mentioned at the beginning, a person may be born with dark skin because of hereditary reasons. In such cases, if a person has dark skin, his/her children may also have dark skin because of gene transfer. Dark skin is also caused by certain types of skin disorders, like lichen simplex chronicus or severe itching on skin. Prolonged exposure to sunlight and hyper pigmentation are two other main factors that are responsible for dark skin. Not only skin disorders, even adrenal disorder, liver problems or intestinal disorders may turn out to be the cause of a person’s dark skin. Lack of proper nutrition in diet and vitamin deficiency may also cause dark skin.
