hello cristina, I have dark skin and it is uneven. I've tried glycolic peels and Retin-A for quite some time now. I am very self conscious about this because everything I do to reverse the problem skin isn't working such as eating healthy, staying out of the sun when possible and wearing sunblock. my question is will my uneven skin be a problem when submitting snap shots to agencies? in addition I don't really have acne just uneven skin light and dark spots on my face and neck. so how clear does ones skin have to be when trying to find an agency. because my skin is holding me back from even submitting because i'm afraid it's not descent enough for an agency. so i just need some advice please:).

in addition when submitting to agencies is it better to have absolutely zero make-up when sending in simple pictures or is light make-up ok?
light make-up is best...

hello thanks for answering my question. my dermatologist thinks it might be hypopigemtation because the parts that are uneven are black and my natural skin color is lighter than the black spots. I don't want to go to the extremes of a chemical peel because i think it'll make it worse and i'm 21. but do you think i should try it.

My cousin (who is a model) has something called Vitiligo. It is the loss of pigment in your skin which cases patches of discoloration. She uses a concealer called Dermablend and she swears by it. She puts in on before she goes to her agencies castings. She even wears it to jobs and the make-up artist just applies over it. She loves it!
