Skin Pigmentation can be considered in various different conditions. It is more to speak about the texture of the skin rather than just colour of the skin.
Variations in the skin colour can be genetic and can also be associated with sunlight. The main factor which impacts the colour of the skin is the melanin, a brown pigment present in human which determines the color of the skin, hair and eye. The melanocytes are present in the basal or the epidermal layer of the skin. The amount and the dispersion of these pigment determines the color of the skin of any individual.
