If you have too much fun during the summer, you probably notice too much pigmentation on your skin. The truth is that even though we love sunny days as it feels like a warm hug, the truth is, too much sun can leave behind a lot of damage on your skin.
It is important to understand that while this season is the most common reason for your freckles and dark patches, your skin tone can get uneven any time of the year, as there are many factors such as hormonal changes and pollution that are responsible for this.
Remember, taking care of your skin should be a constant job. Here are the best tips to even out your skin tone.
Here is how to even your skin tone
1. Apply Sunscreen Every Single Day
The best way to avoid dark spots and freckles is by applying sunscreen every single day. Every time you use sunscreen you are protecting yourself from harmful UV rays. That means that when you use a daily dose of Etude House Sunprise Must Daily Lotion SPF50 you are helping your skin to be protected and prevent pigment cells from appearing.
Keep in mind that your skin aged when it is unprotected or poorly protected from the sun. Be extra careful if you have fair skin, as this can lead to discoloration (dyschromia) that can be harder to cover with makeup.
Sunscreen should be reapplied every two hours or more frequently if you are swimming or sweating heavily. Don’t forget to carry a bottle of sunscreen around with you, even on cloudy or rainy days.
2. Exfoliate Regularly
I know it sounds weird to recommend exfoliation when we are talking about your skin tone, but let us explain. If your texture is not smooth and you have large pores or fine lines, it will prevent your skincare products and cosmetics from applying evenly and it also causes shadow and darkness.
When the surface is smooth, your skin tone appears more even because it gets brighter and the dark spots are not as visible.
The first step to an even skin tone is to have smoother skin, by using Skinfood Black Sugar Mask Wash Off, you can remove dead skin cells, minimize pores, or evening out fine lines.
Most dermatologists agree that you can use also a gentle glycolic acid treatment such as Rohto Mentholatum Hada Labo Hyaluronic Acid Lotion to get rid of dead cells that block pores and encourage collagen production.
This amazing product tightens pores, improves the texture of your skin, and adds instant radiance. That’s why it is one of the best selling Korean beauty products right now.
3. Try A Vitamin C Product
A great way to work on evening out your skin tone is by using a product rich in vitamin C such as Iunik Propolis Vitamin Synergy Serum. Applying this serum can work wonders on your skin because it is both a magnificent brighter and a potent antioxidant.
Being a potent antioxidant can help you fight free radicals, that come from pollution, that are responsible for causing pigment cells to appear creating an uneven skin tone.
Vitamin C is without a doubt one of the most powerful antioxidants and it has proven to stop the active melanin production. This vitamin will also help to rebuild collagen.
4. Get A Peel
Dermatologists also recommend trying a peel for an immediate glow. Be careful that not all peels are the best way for those with dark spots.
Peelings, if they are not gentle, can irritate, and redness. Facial peelings have to very gentle, like Secret Key Lemon Sparkling Peeling Gel that delivers a relaxing and calming experience.
You can also pay a visit to your dermatologist to see if a chemical peeling is a right approach to your skin issues.
5. Lighten Brown Spots With A Whitening Toner
According to dermatologists, brown spots are caused by too much melanin being made in the skin and trapped there. When you use a toner such as Phyto Niacin Whitening Essence it will reduce pigmentation and your skin will look radiant and youthful.
Now that you know what to do to even your skin tone it is time to achieve an impeccably radiant appearance all-year long!
