What is Pigmentation?

Pigmentation, or uneven skin tone, refers to irregularities in the skin’s colouration, often appearing as darker or lighter patches. Several factors can cause it:

Sun Exposure: Overexposure to sunlight triggers the production of melanin, resulting in sunspots or hyperpigmentation.
Hormonal Changes: Pregnancy, hormonal contraceptives, and hormonal fluctuations can lead to conditions like melasma, causing patches of darkened skin.
Inflammation: Skin injuries, acne, or inflammation can stimulate melanocytes, leading to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Genetics: Some individuals are predisposed to certain types of pigmentation disorders due to their genetic makeup.
Ageing: As skin ages, it may develop areas of uneven pigmentation due to cumulative sun damage and slower cell turnover.

Effective treatment often involves a combination of topical agents, laser therapies, and lifestyle changes, tailored to the specific cause and type of pigmentation. Consulting a dermatologist is crucial for an accurate diagnosis and personalised treatment plan.

What causes an uneven skin tone?

The exact cause of pigment problems is not fully understood, but it is believed to be related to factors such as:


This occurs when certain areas of the skin produce more melanin than others, leading to dark patches or spots. Causes include sun exposure, hormonal changes (such as pregnancy or birth control pills), inflammation, and skin injuries.


Conversely, hypopigmentation occurs when areas of the skin produce less melanin, resulting in lighter patches or spots. Causes can include skin conditions like vitiligo, fungal infections, and certain medications.

Sun Damage

Overexposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays can lead to uneven pigmentation, with areas of the skin becoming darker or developing sunspots.

Hormonal Changes

Hormonal fluctuations, such as those occurring during pregnancy or menopause, can trigger changes in melanin production, leading to uneven skin tone.

Skin Inflammation

Conditions like acne, eczema, and psoriasis can cause inflammation, which may result in post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, leaving behind dark marks or patches after the skin heals.


Some individuals may be predisposed to certain skin conditions or pigmentation issues due to their genetic makeup.


As we age, the skin’s natural renewal process slows down, leading to a buildup of dead skin cells and a dull, uneven complexion.


Addressing uneven skin tone often requires a combination of topical treatments, lifestyle changes (such as sun protection), and sometimes professional interventions like chemical peels or laser therapy, tailored to the specific causes and needs of the individual.
