Darker Skin Tone

Usually, there are three types of skin tone- fair, dark and wheatish. But some people around the world experience mixed/patchy skin tones. It typically happens with people of fair and wheatish skin. They face darker skin tones around their eyes, jawline, neck, and nose. Darker skin tone is caused by various factors. Some of them are as follows:

  • Overexposure to the sunlight
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Stress & Anxiety
  • Unhealthy lifestyle
  • Autoimmune disorder
  • Age
  • Pregnancy

Above-mentioned factors affect the release of melanin and due to over release of melanin, dark patches on the skin appear. These patches/uneven skin tones are medically termed pigmentation.

Mild pigmentation of the initial stage may be reversed by making changes in the lifestyle and healthy diet. But hyperpigmentation (dark patches) is stubborn to go by itself. To correct hyperpigmentation medical treatment is needed.
