If you feel your skin shows your age, wrinkles may not be the culprit. After all, wrinkles show maturity, wisdom, and a life well lived, but poor skin tone reveals "how much rest you’ve had, whether or not you are sick, or how well you’ve been maintaining a good skincare regimen,” says L.A. esthetician Gina Mari. According to Mari, an indicator of poor skin tone is that it looks ashy and discolored, and lacks smoothness in texture, appearing irritated, dehydrated, and blotchy.
An uneven skin tone can be caused by hyperpigmentation or melasma, which are common skin conditions that can be caused by sun exposure or hormones, and are revealed as brown patches on the face, Mari says. Many women will have to deal with melanoma during pregnancy. Hyperpigmentation, on the other hand, “occurs when there is an excess of skin pigment producing melanin, which forms deposits in the skin,” Mari says.
