Uneven Skin Tone Causes

Uneven skin tone is the cause of various elements and skin conditions. Here are some of the causes of uneven skin tone.

  • Exposure to the Sun

Prolonged exposure to the sun can cause sunspots that appear prominently on the skin. They can discolor the skin, thus contributing to an uneven skin tone.

  • Melasma

Melasma is another significant cause of uneven skin tone. It leads to grayish discoloration, browning, or tanning of the skin. One can usually see these patches on cheeks, foreheads, above the upper lips, and the nose bridge. But you may find them on parts like the neck and forearms as well.

Melasma Pigmentation

  •   Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation refers to the overproduction of melanin that discolors the human skin. Tanning is the skin’s response to the sun’s harmful rays. Melanocytes respond to the sun by producing melanin. The dark spots spread themselves to various parts of the skin to protect it from the sun’s harmful UV rays.

  • Pollution

The effects of pollution on your skin aren’t any surprise. Pollution consists of so many harmful substances like smoke, dust, chemicals, etc. While floating in the air, they settle on your skin and get absorbed to harm it in various ways. The key is to cleanse your skin regularly to keep it flawless and evenly toned!

  •   Dry Skin

Dry skin lacks sebum and is therefore prone to cracks. Cracked skin is further vulnerable to discoloration and can look patchy.

Uneven Skin Tone Causes Treatment

Some generic uneven skin treatment options include the following. You must consult a dermatologist to know what suits you and your skin type the best.

  • Exfoliation

Exfoliation is crucial to help you treat uneven skin tone on the face. It involves sloughing off the dead and dull skin cells at the surface to let cleansers, moisturizers, etc. show their effect.

Identify the right exfoliant after talking to your dermatologist. Avoid exfoliating too aggressively or very frequently. It can negatively affect the skin’s natural balance and contribute further to your skin problems.

  • Healthy Diet

Maintain a healthy diet. Know what’s right for you and include it in the right quantities to achieve an even skin tone. Usually, a healthy diet may include leafy vegetables, vitamin C-rich foods, etc
