The struggle to deal with uneven skin tone is real. It can be really stressful when your face colour doesn't match to your neck colour, which further doesn't match to your body colour. The irregular darkening of facial tissues appears as patches of unmatched foundation which can make one’s skin look strange and patchy.
To avoid this for once and for all, follow our guide to getting an even toned skin...
One of the primary reasons why people have an uneven skin tone is due to constant and unprotected exposure to the environment. Sun tanning burns the upper layer of your skin which eventually makes it look darker. Due to exposure to pollution, chemicals constantly settle on your skin and cause darkening.
The best way to deal with the sun is by using a good SPF sunscreen. It shields your skin from UVA and UVB rays and keeps your natural complexion colour protected. Covering yourself with a scarf or a hat is just not going to do the trick. So to avoid skin pigmentation due to environmental pollution you can cleanse your face with an anti-pollution face wash that extracts all the fine pollutant particles from your face. We suggest you go for the Pond’s Pure White Face Wash as it comes with the goodness of activated carbon that absorbs impurities and pollution particles from your skin and gives you even skin tone.
Hormones play a vital role in any function of your body. They play a crucial role in causing skin darkening and pigmentation. Hormone stimulation causes your body to release masking pigments that can heal an injury or cause skin discoloration.
Hormonal hyperpigmentation generally occurs when you pop a pimple, use a wrong product or disturb acne. To avoid this do not touch those tiny zits. This skin darkening is caused as a result of acne scarring or skin injury. Hyperpigmentation can also be caused by overuse of cosmetics that do not suit your skin type. Be very particular when choosing cosmetics with high concentrations of acids as some of these can cause skin irritation and allergic reactions.
Tanned, dark skin patches are often a result of no exfoliation. The dirt, grime and sweat settle on your skin and form a thick layer with time. This layer of dead skin cells and dirt makes your skin dull and darker.
To treat this type of hyperpigmentation exfoliate regularly to get rid of dead skin cells and dry skin. This also increases the absorption of your hydrating serums and lotions and makes your skin porous. Due to the penetration of these skin care products you get better results and glow in considerably less time.
