Loss of Tone

When we refer to skin tone, we are usually referring to the luminosity and evenness of complexion. Change of tone is associated with premature skin ageing and is exacerbated by lifestyle factors such as smoking, poor diet and alcohol consumption as well as dehydration and exposure to the sun.

Who can get a change of skin tone?

Change of tone is part of the natural ageing process, but many women may find it more noticeable, as their skin differs from men’s. Smokers, heavy drinkers, people with poor diet and those who spend too much time in the sun are more likely to age prematurely and as a result, are more likely to notice changes to the appearance of their skin.
