• Understanding the Causes of Skin Discoloration

    No matter how effective your skin care routine is, you may eventually develop areas of discoloration, such as liver spots. Your dermatologist can lighten these areas, but you should know your risk factors of skin discoloration. They develop after years of unprotected sun exposure.

    You can hear about this process when you watch this video, presented by a naturopathic doctor. She explains that exposure to sunlight or UV rays in a tanning bed can accelerate the production of melanin. Melanin is a pigment that can clump in one area to cause skin discoloration.
