UNEVEN SKIN TONE
When your skin is repeatedly exposed to UV light, sun damage occurs. Brown spots and uneven skin tone develop as a result of too much melanin being produced to help protect your skin from UV light. This makes the skin look uneven.
Uneven Skin Tone
Melanin is a pigment that determines the colour and tone of a person’s skin. It is this pigment that also predicts our Hair and eye colour. Imbalances of Melanin and disorders of the skin can eventually lead to an inconsistent colouration, patterning creating unattractive blotches upon a person’s skin. This is medically referred to as an uneven skin tone.
When skin cells become damaged or unhealthy, extra melanin is naturally produced to help protect a person’s skin. However, in the case of unhealthy skin, uneven skin tones can be caused by damaged cells preventing the pigment from being produced. As a result, parts of the skin may turn lighter (hypo-pigmentation) or darker (hyper-pigmentation), both of which are recognisable and acknowledged as unnatural skin conditions.
Many factors can affect the tone of a person’s skin, including; environmental factors such as pollution, weather and sunshine; lifestyle influences including diet, smoking and exercise, together with the natural ageing process are all factors to be taken into account.
Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine, using regular sunscreen and employing a good skincare routine can help promote skin vitality and there are also a variety of non-invasive treatments that can restore and brighten the skin’s tone and minimise the visible signs of ageing.

How is uneven skin tone caused?
Sun exposure: When your skin is repeatedly exposed to UV light, sun damage occurs. Brown spots and uneven skin tone develop as a result of too much melanin being produced to help protect your skin from UV light. This makes the skin look uneven.
Hormones: Melasma is hormone-related hyper-pigmentation caused by increased hormone stimulation. It’s most commonly experienced by women who are pregnant or taking contraceptives but can also be a reaction to cosmetics or medications.
Pollution: Particles and gases from traffic-related air pollution are able to penetrate the skin and lead to the formation of brown spots, particularly on the face.
Post-Inflammatory Hyper-pigmentation: Hyper-pigmentation can affect both the face and body and arises as a response to skin inflammation, such as acne, Atopic Dermatitis, Psoriasis or injury. Post-Inflammatory Hyper-pigmentation usually Presents itself as dark spots within the skin.
