What are the reasons for uneven (or dark) skin tone?
Our basic skin tone is decided by our genes. However, over time a number of factors cause it to darken or become patchy. The biggest factor happens to be sun exposure. Our body produces melanin (darkening pigment) as a defense against UV rays. This is commonly referred to as sun tan. However, the distribution of melanin, throughout our body is not uniform. Thus, non-uniform secretion causes some spots to be darker than the others; resulting in unevenness. Another factor is sebum (natural oil) production in our body. Too much of it causes acne (that may also leave scars) and blackheads; while too less means dry, cracked skin, and accumulation of dead cells; all of which result in uneven texture. Moreover, as we age, new cells generate at a slower rate; making it difficult to undo the damage so induced; and only adds wrinkling to the list.
