Uneven skin tone or hyperpigmentation is when your skin takes on a darker colour. Unfortunately, this form of pigmentation can take a while to leave your skin but before you know your solutions, you should be aware of the monsters behind the problem. Scroll down to find out what they are…
Excessive sun exposure
 

Excessive sun exposure

When your skin is exposed to the sun, it starts producing melanin—something that fights UV rays and shields your skin. However, these rays are far stronger than you think and can easily cause uneven skin tone in areas where your skin remains unprotected. Your solution? A broad spectrum sunscreen lotion! We suggest relying on the Lakmé Sun Expert UV Lotion SPF 50 PA+++. This shields your skin against 97% UVB rays that can cause sunburns while the PA+++ saves your skin from UVA rays. The bigger bonus? It doesn’t feel oily on the skin! Make sure you apply this all over your body.

Pollution
 

Pollution

Other than the sun, an environmental aggressor like pollution can also cause your skin to turn brown. Particles from air pollution hit your skin during your daily commute and cause your skin to turn darker in certain areas. This is why investing in a lemon-based face wash is a must when dealing with uneven skin tone. Go for the Lakmé Blush & Glow Lemon Gel Face Wash that gently cleanses while washing away dirt, pollution and impurities from your skin. While its beads help the cleansing process, its antioxidants leave your skin glowing.

Hormonal concerns
 

Hormonal concerns

Pregnant women or women who take oral contraceptives often experience melasma wherein the rise in hormones causes an increase in melanin leading to uneven skin tone. While you need to make sure you include an exfoliant or a scrub as a part of your skin care regime to do away with dead skin, it’s also imperative for you to see a medical expert to help combat the situation.
