EFFECTIVE WAYS TO EVEN YOUR SKIN TONE

Uneven skin tone is a skin problem we all experience.  Blotchiness, redness, dark spots and other hyperpigmentations that occur out of nowhere throw our skin tone off balance!  While some of these patches fade easily over time, some are harder to get rid of! 

Having uneven skin tone can be stressful and it can sometimes make us feel less confident.  It takes time for it to disappear so we often resort to covering it with makeup!  

Why do we have uneven skin tone and what can we do to treat it?  Discover what you can do to help even your skin tone and enjoy your YEOUTH everyday! 


WHY WE HAVE UNEVEN SKIN TONE 

Uneven tones that develop are caused by several intrinsic and environmental factors.   It can also be considered pigmentation disorders.  It happens when our skin’s melanocytes are affected by certain conditions such as hyperpigmentation, or when there is an overproduction of melanin pigments.  These cause visible spots or patches in our skin. 

The following are the major factors that affect our skin and result in uneven skin tone: 

1. AGING 

As we age, our skin goes through a lot of major changes. Skin damage accumulated through the years and intrinsic natural aging manifests in so many ways in the skin.  They can be in the form of fine lines and wrinkles, scars, hyperpigmentation, persistent dryness or excessive oiliness, roughness and sagging, even in the form of skin diseases like dermatitis and rosacea.

2. UV EXPOSURE 

Our skin naturally protects itself from harmful UV exposure caused by sun and light.  It does this by increasing its melanin production and creating a tan, these later become sun spots or age spots and result in uneven skin tone.

 3. ACNE

The skin becomes inflamed when we have acne. The infected portion also becomes red, and when it becomes infected, it can leave an acne scar.  The scar becomes hyperpigmented later on which affects the skin’s tone. 

4. HORMONAL CHANGES

When there is increased production of hormones during teen years, pregnancy, menopause, monthly periods and while on birth control, melasma appears and hyperpigmentation develops in the skin.
