Dark brown patches on the skin are nothing to worry about, with a little care you can prevent them, and if you are really particular, you can even get them removed.
Age spots and liver spots: As we age, there is a tendency to get dark spots on the skin when exposed to sunlight. These dark spots are nothing to worry about as they are usually harmless.
Bruising: Any kind of bruising leads to dark brown patches when the skin heals. These are usually nothing to worry about. If the area is extremely painful or develops an infection, it is essential to get medical help.
Incontinentia pigmenti: This is a hereditary disease that occurs at birth, more in girls. It first appears as a blister, but as the child gets a bit older, it turns into a brown patch (hyperpigmentation). These patches usually go away on their own as the child gets older. This condition is accompanied by other symptoms such as hair loss, slower development, seizures, and other nerve related problems.
Cancer: Actinic keratosis is a type or red or brownish patch that appears on parts of the skin that are exposed to the sun for longer periods of time. Generally this condition is not painful, but should not be ignored. If left untreated, it may lead to what is known as squamous cell cancer.
Neurofibromatosis: Neurofibromatosis is a genetic problem that promotes the growth of tumors in the nervous system. This genetic condition exists from birth, but is apparent when the child turns about 10 years old. In type I neurofibromatosis, there are small brown spots on the skin. This condition is accompanied by other symptoms such as tumors in the eye, larger than normal head, and abnormalities in the development of the spine.
Stasis dermatitis: Stasis dermatitis is a condition in which blood collects as pools in some areas of the body such as the legs and ankles. This is usually apparent as brown staining in those areas. Other symptoms associated with this are a dull ache or a heavy feeling in the legs and skin thinning. If these patches are scratched, they could also result in bleeding.
Pigmentation of skin: Hyper pigmentation is a condition in which the skin produces excess melanin, resulting in dark patches on the skin. These are totally harmless, but may get worse with more exposure to sunlight, resulting in dark brown patches on the skin.
Diabetes: Brown skin patches are common in diabetes . This condition is due to changes in the minor blood vessels. The condition is also known as shin spots as the spots occur in the shin area, and is medically termed as diabetic dermopathy. The good news is that this does not need any medication and will usually go away on its own. Controlling diabetes is also one of the best ways of preventing these from occurring.
Tips and home remedies in the treatment of brown patches of skin
Most of the time, brown patches on the skin are because of too much sun. Here are some tips to help treat and prevent brown patches on the skin because of sunlight.
- Avoid too much exposure to the sun
- Do not use sun lamps and tanning booths
- Wear protective clothing, a large brimmed hat and long sleeved clothes
- Stay indoors when the sun is at its hottest, which is between 10 AM and 4 PM.
- Use a sunscreen which has an SPF of 15 or higher when you are out in the sun
- For pigmentation scars, using bleach is usually sufficient to remove the brown patches.
- Laser surgery also helps remove brown patches on skin.
- Cosmetic treatments like microdermabrasion are known to effective for mild pigmentation.
- Skin bleaching can be done with the help of nature’s bleaching agent called vitamin C. This can be acquired from sources like onion juice and lemon juice. Apply this to the face or the region of hyperpigmentation daily.
- The next form of treatment is the application of creams that contain tretinoin and vitamin E. Tretinoin will stimulate keratinocyte turnover and collagen production giving you a new skin and Vitamin E at the same time will inhibit the production of melanin.
If the brown patches on the skin do not go away, change color or change in size, it is necessary to check with a doctor as they may be a symptom of some other condition.

Brianne from MemoriesOvertakingMe.com wrote a review of the Love Line Caress Pro-Age Eye & Lip Cream:
Hersko has impressed me yet again! I am really loving the Love Line Caress Pro-Age eye and lip cream. Not only does it have a very light nice scent but its extremely gentle. It is a nice thin cream that absorbs well. I tried this under my eyes and around my lips and an hour later I can still feel a slight lotion feel under my eyes but not around my lips or hands. My skin feels like it can breathe and isn't covered by a nasty film.
Another winner from Herkso & Hlavin!

Brianne from MemoriesOvertakingMe.com wrote a review of the Love Line ROUGE Body Lotion:
Ok, I have to be 100% honest. When I first opened and smelled the sample, I instantly thought of the Avon products my grandmother use to give me in the late 80's early 90's. The scent ..at first...for me was a "mature floral scent" however after applying the lotion to my arms and legs I began to really enjoy the it. Its not an over powering scent, it is a light floral scent. In fact within minutes of applying my husband sniffed the air and said "Oooh what's that smell, I like it" I noticed right away that the lotion was a thin consistency and it quickly absorbed into my skin. I can be a bit picky with my lotions. For example, I LOVE the scents of Bath & Body Work lotions but I HATE the actual lotions themselves. They always leave a gross sticky film on my skin. Hlavin Love Line ROUGE Body Lotion did not leave ANY film whatsoever! It is such a light lotion that actually left my skin very soft. I also liked that fact that a little went a long way, I didn't have to pour lotion all over my self, all it took was just a few drops. Another thing I really liked was the fact that I woke up the next morning and could still smell that wonderful light scent! I was honestly amazed.
Love Line ROUGE Body Lotion- Wife tested, Husband approved!

TESTIMONIAL - Mrs. Eileen is one of our first customers through our Hersko website. She lives in Manhattan, New York.
Beyond the fact that Mrs. Eileen is a devoted customer for almost 4 years for our Love Line body Lotion “G” (Ginseng) and matching perfume, she used regularly one product from the Love Line - See PLATINUM face care series the “Nourishing cream mask”. Last year Eileen, decided to start using the samples and miniatures that we usually send with our products.
The following quote is from an email sent by Mrs. Eileen from Feb 20, 2013; An unfortunate incident happened to her a few months ago that she had to see a plastic surgeon and a happy occurrence happened in the end.
I recently fell while jogging necessitating me to see my plastic surgeon. I happened to have known him for many years – dog bite, torn earlobe, etc..
While he was stitching up my wound, I inquired about some cosmetic work for my face. He suggested Botox, Juevederm and a chemical peel. The shots I found tolerable, the peel a bit intimidating, so we began with the shots. A few weeks later I had a follow up appointment. Unbeknownst to him, I had started using the - PLATINUM products. When he saw me, he asked when I had had the peel? I told him I didn’t – it was the products from Israel that improved my skin so dramatically. He is now carrying the line in his clinic. Need I say more?
Now Dr…….. Plastic surgeon from Manhattan Offers the Love Line - PLATINUM series to his customers.
With Mrs. Eileen's enthusiasm, having seen significant improvement with her facial skin, recognizing its benefits, her friends are now our customers too.
Love Line Platinum
