Due to age or as a result of a variety of health problems dark spots caused by hyper pigmentation may appear on the skin. Solve that problem with these natural remedies.
What is Uneven Skin Tone?
Uneven skin tone is a general term encompassing all types of dark areas of skin. The condition occurs when the body produces too much of the skin pigment, melanin, in certain areas, causing those dark, blotchy patches.
Melanin is the pigment responsible for producing our skin and eye color, as well as the color of our hair. As the body ages, however, the skin is less able to properly distribute the pigment, increasing the risk of uneven skin tone.
The most commonly affected parts of the skin include the forehead, cheeks, upper lip, and chin. After the age of 30, this can also show up as age spots on the hands and other areas of the body.
What Causes Uneven Skin Tone?
Uneven skin tone is often triggered by other factors. The most common one is the sun. Exposure to damaging UV rays, whether from the sun or tanning beds, can trigger the overproduction of melanin, causing dark spots and discoloration.
The second most common trigger is hormonal changes. Women who take birth control pills or who are pregnant may experience skin tone changes as the body reacts to the change in hormone levels. This produces a type of skin darkening, which typically affects the cheeks, chin, and forehead.
Inflammation is the third most common trigger. When the skin becomes inflamed, due to acne, chemical peels, or other skin treatments or damage, the skin may react by producing too much melanin during the healing process.
Various medical conditions may also lead to uneven skin tone. These may include Addison’s disease, Cushing’s disease, celiac disease, and other genetic and hormonal disorders. Smoking can also increase risk.
