- WHAT CAUSES UNEVEN SKIN TONE?
- Melanin, the component responsible for our rich hues and complexions, is highly reactive and can over produce pigmentation with just the slighted stimulus. Melasma is a condition often caused by hormonal changes during pregnancy or from birth control pills. In some people, melasma occurs even without obvious changes in hormones. However, in all people with melasma, this condition is aggravated by sun exposure. Finally, people with multi-hued skin tones can simply get uneven skin tone with aging. This usually starts in the 30’s and 40’s. After years of research, Specific Beauty’s Live Even® Brighter Collection is a breakthrough system that was specifically formulated to deliver a more even-toned complexion and a brighter, more supple, youthful-looking radiance.
