There is no such thing as a perfectly even skin tone, and everyone will have some variation across their face. However, some people can be affected by uneven skin tone more than others, and sometimes it can lead to lowered self-esteem and a drop in confidence.

Uneven skin tone can present itself as blotchy patches on the face and neck, often known as hyperpigmentation. Many men and women suffer from rosy cheeks, red noses and shaded hairlines. While a perfectly even skin tone is impossible, there are ways of creating a more harmonious and balanced complexion.

Hyperpigmentation and an uneven skin tone can be caused by a range of different factors, including sun damage, ageing and hormones. An increase in melatonin from overexposure to the sun can result in dark patches on the skin, and hormones can also play a part in skin discolouration.
