NORMALLY, SUN EXPOSED PARTS ARE DARKER THAN THE UNEXPOSED PARTS.DUE TO SUN LIGHT, OUR MELANIN PIGMENT SECRETION (BLACK PIGMENTATION) IS INCREASED IN THE SKIN. THIS IS THE REASON FOR DARKER SHADE COLOUR ON YOUR FACE AND HANDS THAN ANY OTHER PARTS.FOR PREVENTIVE MEASURES, YOU MAY USE THE MOISTURES, SUN SCREEN PROTECTIVES MEASURES ETC.
