Why Does Uneven Skin Tone Happen – and What Can You Do About It?

Why Does Uneven Skin Tone Happen – and What Can You Do About It? - Sente Labs

Dull, patchy skin. Sigh. We’ve all been there. Uneven skin tone – from discoloration to blotches or redness – may be a near-universal phenomenon, but that doesn’t make it less frustrating when it’s happening to you. 

Fortunately, this skin quirk is typically a short-term concern, often resolved naturally. However, when unevenness persists, it can help to pinpoint out what’s causing it so you’re able to resolve the issue with confidence.

Understanding the Causes of Uneven Skin Tone

Often, our skin lacks a radiant glow simply because we haven’t exfoliated lately. (Dead skin cells have the tendency to pile up rather quickly.) Lack of sleep is also a typical culprit, along with everyday dirt, debris, and other pollution. 

Sometimes, though, the root causes go a little deeper – typically, inflammation, a defense mechanism in the body with a lot of unfavorable effects. So what causes this response in the skin?

  • Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH): Acne breakouts, skin injuries, and, of course, a touch of inflammation can leave behind dark spots. Think of these deposits of extra melanin as your skin's battle scars.
  • Sun Damage: Soaking up a little sunshine is a perfectly healthy habit, but when our skin goes unprotected, harmful UV rays wreak havoc, leading to increased melanin production and the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation. You already know this, but you’ve got to protect your skin with SPF. Every day. We mean it.
  • Hormonal Changes: Fluctuating hormone levels, whether due to pregnancy or medication, can trigger melasma (known for its signature brown patches) and other forms of stubborn hyperpigmentation.
  • Aging: As we age, our skin's natural renewal process slows down, creating dead skin cell accumulation, changes in texture, and an overall muted appearance.

Addressing Uneven Skin Tone with Confidence

Now that you know what’s going on,let's talk about how Senté – and specifically Heparan Sulfate Analog (HSA) – can be your ally in repairing uneven skin tone with scientific precision. HSA is our patented repairing molecule that helps boost your skin's immune response to inflammation, which is the root cause of uneven skin tone:

  • Cysteamine HSA Pigment & Tone Corrector: This essential cream is a powerhouse for anyone with hyperpigmentation, thanks to two powerful inflammation-fighting ingredients (HSA and cysteamine HCI). Clinical evidence demonstrates results in just 8-16 weeks – and as a bonus, it won’t clog your pores and works on both dry and sensitive skin.
  • Senté Even Tone Retinol Cream: Dark spots and unevenness simply can’t compete with this unique blend of pure retinol and Heparan Sulfate Analog (HSA). Clinical studies have shown this cream improves skin tone and texture in as early as two weeks.
  • Senté Illuminé Eye Cream: Bid farewell to dark circles and under-eye discoloration. Senté Illuminé Eye Cream features HSA technology and particularly effective peptides – it brightens, hydrates, and smoothens the delicate eye area. 
  • Senté Dermal Repair Cream: Want to tackle redness head-on? Look no further than this luxurious moisturizer. Armed with HSA, replenishing Vitamin E, and antioxidants, it’s been clinically shown to lead to more even-looking skin in just four weeks. Plus, it’s safe enough for sensitive, rosacea-prone skin.
