Having an uneven skin tone is common but often an embarrassing skin condition. Spots on the face, necks, arms, legs and throughout your body that are either lighter or darker than your original skin tone are usually noticeable and may seem impossible to get rid of.
Understanding Uneven Skin Tones
Common symptoms of an uneven skin tone include:
- Flat or oval-shaped spots on any area on your body
- Age spots
- Skin has rough patches
- Skin feels dry
- Dark brown, black, grey, red, or purple patches
There are four common causes people develop an uneven skin tone. The first common cause of uneven skin tones is overexposure to the sun. The harmful UV rays of the sun may cause your body to instinctively produce large amounts of melanin as protection, causing dark spots to appear on the skin’s surface.
Dirt particles from the atmosphere may also contribute to an uneven skin tone. When air pollution hits the skin repeatedly over time, it can lead to brown and dark spots on the face and body.
Hormonal imbalances can also lead to the formation of dark spots. An increase in hormone production may result in a negative reaction, causing an uneven skin tone. Pregnancy, puberty, menopause, or a change in birth control can all affect hormones, leading to a potentially uneven skin tone.
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is the fourth most common source of developing an uneven skin tone. When the acne lesions inflame the skin, the body’s reaction may be to release melanin as a way to heal itself. This increase of melanin production can lead to skin discoloration or an uneven skin tone.

Common Uneven Skin Tone FAQs
- How can I treat uneven skin tone?
The first step to treating an uneven skin tone is to know your skin type: normal, combination, oily or dry. Then choose products that cater to your skin type. It’s also important to tone, exfoliate, and moisturize your skin regularly. Finally, be sure to eat a clean diet that is low in processed food and refined carbohydrates.
- Can I use products with lactic acid to treat my uneven skin tone?
Yes. Lactic acid can exfoliate and brighten the skin and even out your skin tone. Lactic acid also smooths out skin and reduces fine lines and wrinkles, common side effects of an uneven skin tone.

Uneven skin tone ages skin, making it appear older than it actually is. To maintain a youthful appearance, it’s best to address uneven skin tones immediately and not left it untreated.
