What Are The Causes Of Pigmentation On The Face?

What Is Uneven Skin Tone?

There are majorly two ways through which you might experience an uneven skin tone. First being colour, which can be caused due to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or sun spots. Second, texture. Which includes dry patches, built up of dead skin cells, fine lines or blotchiness. Your skin tone might look dull overall and bumpy to touch. 

What Are The Causes Of Pigmentation On The Face? 

Dark spots or pigmentation is the cause of many culprits. Below are a few of the major ones. 

1. Excessive Sun Exposure

When you’re out and about the day, without using proper or enough SPF, your skin comes under the attack of UV rays. This causes the development of black or brown spots, also called sun spots as your skin develops more melanin (the pigment that gives skin its colour) as a means to protect your skin from sun’s harmful rays. 

2. Hormones 

An imbalance in hormones can trigger the production of melanin or melasma, which is hormone-related hyperpigmentation. One might also develop dark spots during pregnancy and menopause, when the hormones are all topsy-turvy. 

3. Pollution 

One of the most common causes of pigmentation on the face is pollution. Pollutants, gases and dirt can penetrate your skin leading to dark spots and lacklustre skin.

4. Post-Acne Pigmentation 

Where there is acne, there is also post-acne pigmentation. It can leave behind a dark red or brownish spot. 

How To Get Rid Of Uneven Skin Tone? 

To tackle and prevent dark spots, you basically need to rely heavily on two ingredients - Niacinamide and Vitamin C. Starting with the latter, Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that impedes the production of melanin thereby brightening your skin and reducing dark spots.

Each morning post cleansing, dab 2-3 drops of the Vitamin C serum onto your face and neck.
