Skin Discoloration

Acne Scars

Acne Scars become noticeable when our skin loses collagen due to breakouts that affected the skin deeply. The inability of the skin to repair the damage may be due to a lack of vitamins and minerals like Vitamin C. Exposure to ultraviolet light, tobacco, excessive intake of sugar, and aging can lead to having acne scars after a breakout.

Age Spots

Age spots are small, flat dark areas on the skin. They vary in size and usually appear on areas such as the face, hands, shoulders, and arms. Skin aging, sun exposure, or other forms of ultraviolet (UV) light exposure, such as tanning beds, are all possible causes.

Hemangiomas

Hemangiomas also known as infantile hemangiomas, are noncancerous growths of blood vessels. This happens when there’s an abnormal increase of blood vessels in one area of the body. Experts believe that this is caused y proteins in the placenta during pregnancy.

Melasma

Melasma is sometimes referred to as the mask of pregnancy because it is sometimes triggered by an increase in hormones in pregnant women. While melasma isn’t painful and doesn’t present any health risks, it can cause significant emotional distress for those who develop these dark patches. The most common causes are hormones (including hormonal medications) and sun exposure.

Pigmented Birthmarks

Pigmented Birthmarks are colored skin spots that either is present at birth or develop shortly after birth. It can be in different colors such as brown, tan, black, pale blue, pink, white, red, or purple. Pigmented birthmarks are caused by an overgrowth of the cells that create pigment (color) in the skin.

Rosacea

A chronic type of skin condition that causes inflammation which manifests as pustules and flushing of the skin accompanied with small blood vessels that are visible. Rosacea is triggered by the increase of inflammation in the body such as stress, hot temperatures like baths, and eating spicy food. A sensitivity reaction to a mite that lives inside the pores of the skin is also one of the primary causes of these conditions. Interestingly, there is a connection between systemic illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension, celiac disease, and rosacea. All of which are inflammatory in nature.

Uneven Skin Tone and Texture

Uneven skin tone is an irregular darkening of the skin due to the overproduction of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin and hair color. Having this skin issue may be due to sun exposure, pollution, hormones, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Vitiligo

Vitiligo is a type of long-term skin condition in which the melanin, pigment cells of the skin are destroyed causing affected areas to turn pale. It often appears as patches of white skin. This condition is caused by toxins, genetics, and nutritional deficiencies.
