A wide range of factors can contribute to an uneven skin tone. Exposure to the sun and pollution and other past damage to skin can cause dark spots, discolorations or an overall uneven skin tone.
If your skin tone is uneven, look for formulas that can help exfoliate and brighten skin. Start your routine with a facial scrub to effectively exfoliate and help smooth skin’s texture. When cleansing, avoid excessively scrubbing the skin which may cause skin to become irritated. During the day, defend skin with a sunscreen to help prevent new discolorations from forming. If you have persistent dark spots and discolorations, treat them with a dark spot corrector to help visibly improve skin clarity.
Uneven skin texture ranges from rough areas of skin to enlarged pores to blemishes. Dryness or dehydration can cause skin to feel parched and even flaky. External aggressors like the sun, pollution and extreme weather can damage skin and cause it to appear rough or uneven. Over time, skin’s renewal process also slows down so dull, dry skin may remain on skin’s surface longer which can contribute to a rough skin texture.
Exfoliating regularly and keeping skin hydrated is a key way to help even skin’s texture for soft, supple skin. Moisturisers or serums with Hyaluronic Acid can help visibly plump and smooth skin. Formulas containing enough Vitamin C and Retinol and Pro-Retinol can help visibly smooth skin’s texture. Exfoliating formulas like facial scrubs or clay masks are also an effective way to help smooth skin and visibly minimise pores.
For rough skin texture, use an exfoliating face wash to effectively cleanse and help slough away dead skin. Smooth on a moisturiser morning and night and add a hydrating serum for an extra boost of moisture. For very rough skin, look for a potent facial serum which can help smooth and improve. To target visibly enlarged pores, use a clay mask several times a week to help refine skin’s texture.
