Uneven skin tone can happen for many reasons, most of which are either hormonal or a physical reaction to light. In both instances, melanin build-up in uneven quantity and places is usually the reason for the patchy brown appearance. As the cells containing more melanin come in contact with sunlight, for example, they darken faster than other areas with less melanin.
Uneven skin tone can also be due to hormonal changes, especially during pregnancy or in certain women taking birth control pills. The extra oestrogen in the body causes melanin to reproduce at a much higher speed than normal, resulting in patchy brown skin. If this happens during pregnancy, there is often no need for treatment, as the problem will disappear after given birth.
Skin can feel uneven and rough if there is less sebum. This means that cells don't bind well to each other, resulting in uneven patches that feel rough to the touch and often look like broken and cracked skin.
