Causes and Treatments of Uneven Skin
The wish to have beautiful skin is quite natural. Contrary to popular belief, it is not only young girls or women who struggle with a healthy and clear looking skin. Nowadays, men have also become conscious of having good skin. One of the hindrances for healthy and beautiful skin is uneven tone. Also known as hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone makes your face have a lack of freshness. Moreover, it makes the skin appear aged even when that is not the case.
Causes of Uneven Skin
Uneven skin tone can be the result of several things. The main cause of uneven skin is the excess production of melanin. Melanin is the pigment responsible for the skin and hair color. When the pigment is produced in excess quantities, it can make the skin darker in color. Dark patches and spots will appear on the skin that adds to the aged look. It is reported that highly uneven skin tone can make a person appear 12 years older than their actual age.
Here is why melanin may be exceeding in your skin:
Exposure to Sun
It is commonly known that UV rays from the sun can cause damage to the skin. When the skin is repeatedly exposed to the sun, melanin kicks into its defense. The pigment will be produced in excess to protect the skin, resulting in dark patches and spots.
Hyperpigmentation can also be related to the production the hormone Melasma. This hormone is specifically increased during pregnancy. It may also be stimulated due to the intake of contraceptives or as a reaction to cosmetics and medications.
Particles and gases in polluted air can penetrate the skin, especially that of the face. This penetration can develop dark patches or brown spots that add to the uneven tone of the skin.
Skin can often darken after it has healed. This hyperpigmentation happens due to scarring as a result of skin injury or acne lesions.
Treatments for Uneven Skin
For long term solutions to an uneven skin, you can choose to have a cosmetic treatment.
A mixture of vitamin C, salicylic acid and lactic acid is applied to the skin. The salicylic acid is for removal of dead skin cells while the lactic acid exfoliates through its skin softening and antioxidant properties.
Microdermabrasion is an effective way to remove dead skin cells that produce the dull effect of the uneven skin. The skin will be treated with medical grade crystals at high pressure. Later the skin is vacuumed up to remove the dead skin cells. The procedure will also help stimulate blood flow and oxygen to promote new cell growth.
