Discolorations of the skin caused by the effects of the sun, wind, dryness or irritations accumulated over time results in uneven skin tone. This occurs when there is inconsistent production of melanin in our body. The most common reason for darkened areas of the skin, brown spots or areas of discoloration is unprotected sun exposure. Using a broad spectrum sunscreen all year round is important. A regular skincare routine with cleansing, toning and moisturizing goes a long way to keep one’s skin tone looking healthy.
