Skin discoloration is a situation where certain patches of your skin, usually on your face, are not the same color as the rest of your natural skin tone. Usually, these patches are darker and may be anything from one large patch to a cluster of small patches. Conditions that reflect skin discoloration can include birthmarks, freckles and age spots.
Birthmarks are either red (called vascular birthmarks), brown, purple, pink, white or black, although other colors are possible. They can be raised above the skin or just a discoloration of the skin. It is not clear why some people get birthmarks, which are seen at birth or shortly after birth. They tend to fade as one gets older but may still be quite apparent in adulthood.
Freckles are tiny brown spots that usually appear on the face but can show up on other parts of the skin as well. They are most common in people with lighter skin and lighter or red hair. They are the result of a combination of sun exposure and genetic predisposition. While not a health risk, you may not like their appearance and may be looking for an alternative to covering them up with makeup.
Age spots can have a number of names, including sun spots, liver spots and, medically, solar lentigines. They are usually brown, black or tan spots that, like freckles, are a result of excessive sun exposure, or the use of tanning beds. They are generally harmless, but many people do not care for their appearance.
