Overall health: Some people have inborn pale skin but if that is not your case, please, check with your primary care doctor if you have any iron deficiency anemia or lead poisoning or other medical problem. Are you using any moisturizer with unknown origin ? Somethings, mercury containing moisturizer is sold and can cause pale skin discoloration, too. Oh, i see you have iron deficiency anemia, there you go.
