a: Melanocytes ~
b: little factories


"Melanocytes are like little factories churning out brown pigment granules, which is the pigment in our skin and they happen in a patchy way, rather than all over. If it happens evenly all over, you just get a tan right (but you're, hopefully, not tanning). But if it happens in a patchy way then you get blotchiness, and we all hate that. "
