Why does my skin color keeps changing? Changes in melanin production can be due to a variety of conditions and some medications. Skin darkening can be due to changing hormone levels or medications, but it can also occur from exposure to ionizing radiation (such as the sun) or heavy metals. Radiation therapy can also cause an increase in skin pigmentation.
How do you stop your skin from changing color?
- Cleanse and Moisturise. Firstly, you need to ensure that you are taking care of your skin and should adopt a good skin care regimen if you do not already have one.
- Exfoliate. Exfoliate your skin a couple of times a week using a gentle scrub.
- Toner is a must.
- Use a good sunscreen.
Why does my skin look darker sometimes? Darker areas of skin (or an area that tans more easily) occurs when you have more melanin or overactive melanocytes. Bronzing of the skin may sometimes be mistaken for a suntan. This skin discoloration often develops slowly, starting at the elbows, knuckles, and knees and spreading from there.
How do I get my original skin color back?
