Never skip the sunscreen
We completely understand how getting ready for work every morning can be a fight against the clock. But the one skincare essential you mustn’t miss out on is sunscreen.
While it might seem like a waste of time when there’s cloud cover in the rainy season, you couldn’t be more wrong. For a country like ours, we need a broad spectrum sunscreen such as the Lakmé Sun Expert SPF 24 PA ++ Fairness UV Lotion throughout the 12 months. Loaded with lemon grass extracts, cucumber and vitamin B3, this antioxidant-rich lotion helps battle not just pigmentation but also dark spots as well as any other sun damage. For best results, apply it 20 minutes before you leave the house and if possible, try to steer clear of the sun between 10 am and 4 pm when the sun’s rays are the strongest.
Invest in hats, scarves and sunglasses
In addition to sunscreen, you can save yourself from an uneven skin tone by using additional protection in the form of hats, scarves and of course, sunglasses. In addition to being en vogue, these will also defend the target areas where the effects of pigmentation are truly visible, namely, the under eye, forehead and even sides of the face.
If you happen to suffer from an uneven skin tone on your body, don’t worry. We understand how it can seem impossible to wear full sleeved tees or jackets when you’re out and about in the summer. Deal with this by giving your skin a healthy dose of the Vaseline Healthy White Lotion SPF Triple Lightening Body Lotion that can guarantee your skin UVA and UVB protection. Also enriched with micro-droplets of Vaseline Jelly and vitamin B3, it’ll help your skin look fairer.
Eat for the skin you want
Your skin is a reflection of your diet, therefore, make it a point to consume meals that are rich in green veggies and hydrate your skin with three litres of water a day. If you’re prone to snacking, make wise choices—choose a fruit over wafers or chips, dry fruits over a read-to-eat soup or noodles. The bottom line is, while your food intake can’t reverse skin pigmentation and your skin tone, it can help control the damage by aiding the growth of new skin cells.
