Have you noticed some unevenness in your skin lately? Age spots, darkened areas, scars, pregnancy masks, and other types of skin discoloration can make you feel older than you are, and may encourage you to reach for harsh lightening products like hydroquinone, or even get you thinking about cosmetic surgery.
Such drastic measures aren’t necessary, however, as Mother Nature has given us plenty of solutions that work with the skin, rather than against it.
Worried about dark spots? You don’t have to be harsh with your skin.
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.
