Dark spots and discoloration can easily age your appearance. No matter what the discoloration looks like on the surface of your skin, it’s all caused by the same factor: overproduction of melanin, the dark pigment in our skin. Throw sun exposure, inflammation, and hormonal fluctuations into the mix, and you have the ultimate recipe for unwanted discoloration.
Discoloration affects all skin tones, yet it doesn’t look the same from one person to the next. While some skin tones see more redness, pinkness and blotchiness in their complexions (especially post-breakout), others see larger dark spots or even diffuse patches of color.
