Our skin is a stubborn thing. One minute it looks glowing and healthy and the next, a slight hormonal change can cause redness and outbreaks that we could really do without. So what causes you to have uneven skin tone? Those dark or red patches are caused by an increase in melanin production. This is a natural pigment of your skin and is responsible for your skin, hair and eye colour. But too much of it can cause dark patches and spots!
Did you know that its not only hormones that can trigger an increase in melanin? Sun damage and medications can also increase production and cause dark patches.
