How to Care for Uneven Skin Tone
What is Uneven Skin Tone
Uneven skin tone is also known as hyperpigmentation or irregular darkening of the skin. The cause of uneven skin tone is due to sun exposure, pollution, hormones, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Sun exposure causes uneven skin tone because of excessive melanin production to help protect our skin from the UV light. Pollution causes uneven skin tone because of the toxins that penetrate the skin resulting in little brown spots. Hormones cause uneven skin tone such as Melasma due to an increase in hormone production. This mostly occurs during pregnancy or being on birth control. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is when the skin darkens as a result of scarring from acne and post skin treatments.
How to treat Uneven skin tone
Uneven skin tone can be treated with enzyme exfoliation, chemical peels or lightening agent. These treatments are effective for uneven skin tone because it removes the dead skin cells, imitate cellular regeneration and nourish the skin and brighten the skin.
