What is it with uneven skin tone? For many women, harmony can only be restored with a layer of foundation. So what’s the best way to fix uneven skin tone? Here’s some tips from NLDA.
1. Drink A Lot of Water
There is really nothing better you can do for beautiful looking skin than drink a lot of water. Your skin is made up of nearly 75% water, so drinking enough of it daily only makes sense if you want beautiful skin. Water cleans the skin from the inside out and will help dramatically to improve your skin tone.
Do yourself a favor and make water your primary drink. Forgo the soda and other sugary drinks and make it a point to drink at least 8-10 glasses of water a day. If you don’t like the taste of water (which many people actually don’t) try adding some fresh squeezed lemon or cucumber slices to freshen things up a bit. Not only will this improve the taste of your water, but will offer extra help with the appearance of your skin.
2. Use Sunscreen Daily
You’re not really going without sunscreen every day are you? The sun and damage from the sun is one of the biggest triggers that cause uneven skin tone. Wearing sunscreen every day will help prevent any further damage from the sun’s harmful UV rays and when used over time will help to get rid of uneven skin tone. Make sure to get at least SPF15 daily and you will do your skin great favors. There are different sunscreens for all skin-types and you are sure to find one that will highly benefit your uneven skin tone.
3. Keep Skin Hydrated
If you’ve got uneven skin tone due to oily skin or acne, using a moisturizer every day may seem counterintuitive to getting rid of it. Keeping your skin clean and moisturized however, can greatly help with your uneven skin tone. Just as there are different sunscreens for different skin-types, there are different moisturizers that are specially formulated to help with your skin. If you’ve got combination skin, find a moisturizer that will balance out your complexion is one of the keys to balancing out your skin tone. Keeping skin hydrated on the outside is as important to keeping it hydrated on the inside.
4. Baking Soda Paste
Baking soda is the heart of many at-home recipes for health and beauty. It is excellent for your skin and acts as a natural exfoliator that isn’t at all harsh to the skin. If you’ve got uneven skin tone because you’ve spent too much time in the sun, it will help by gently scratching the surface of your skin to get rid of the dry flaky layers that have resulted in uneven skin tone. The same is true if your uneven skin tone is a result of scarring.
To get rid of uneven skin tone using baking soda, you’ll need to make a paste. This is a simple method, that when used a few times a week, will dramatically improve the evenness of your skin tone. To make this paste simply take one teaspoon of baking soda and add a few drops of water or rosewater, stirring them together until you’ve got a nice paste. Put this paste directly onto your face and leave it to sit for a few minutes. After this time, gently massage this paste into the skin using a circular motion for 2-3 minutes more. Rinse this off with warm water and pat dry.
