How to deal with uneven skin tone

A sun-kissed glow is lovely to behold. But liver spots, mottled brown patches and large freckles on the face and hands are beauty banes that affect millions of women.

Unfortunately, hyperpigmentation, when there are areas of unusual darkening of the skin, is a very common problem and tends to get worse as skin ages.

Common causes:

UVA light from the sun is probably responsible for causing flat brown lesions known individually as lentigo to develop over a period of 20 to 30 years.

'This means that most people with this problem probably weren't using sunscreen with adequate UVA protection in the past.'

Liver spots on the hands and face are also due to damage caused by ultraviolet radiation.

Using a high factor sunscreen on exposed skin from an early age is the best prevention, as is avoiding sun exposure in the heat of the day during summer months when UVA rays are most abundant, especially between 11am and 3pm.

Not all skin pigmentation problems are due to the sun, however.

Chloasma, which appears like a butterfly shaped darkening of the skin across the upper lip, nose, cheeks and forehead, can be caused by elevated levels of hormones during pregnancy in some women, or even when a woman starts taking the birth control pills.
