3 Effective Ways To Deal With Uneven Skin Tone

3 Effective Ways To Deal With Uneven Skin Tone By Barbies Beauty Bits

Uneven skin tone, called hyperpigmentation (the irregular darkening of the skin) is a big beauty problem that a lot of women have to deal with, especially with those over forty. Not only can it make you feel self-conscious, but it can also become very frustrating if it is not taken care of properly.

But fret no more as I am here to share with you "Three Effective Ways To Deal With Uneven Skintone." Now before I get into some of the ways to treat your uneven skin tone, I think it is essential to understand some of the causes, as the treatments that you choose depends on the cause of the problem!  And once you have identified the issue, you can start looking for some custom skin care products which deal with those specific issues.

What Causes An Uneven Skin Tone
There are three leading causes of uneven skin tone.
  • Sun damage
  • Estrogen levels
  • Swelling from acne
If your uneven skin tone is caused by sun damage or swelling from acne, the dark areas will become confined to circles, but if estrogen levels cause them, they're likely to spread further.

If sun damage is a problem, it's essential that you are using the right protection whenever you go outside and if acne is causing uneven skin tone, you need a good cleanser to stop dirt building up in your pores.

Lastly, an increase in hormones can cause Hormone-related hyperpigmentation. Most who experience this are either pregnant or taking birth control, just something to keep in mind. 

Treatments To Achieve An Even Skin Tone
I want to first start by saying you do not need to spend an arm and a leg for a laser treatment or a prescription that you can only get from a plastic surgeon or aesthetics office.  As the tips I am sharing today you can enjoy in the comfort of your own home.

I'm listing this as makeup is one of the first things people think of, but honestly, you need to treat the problem before applying makeup! Why you may ask? Well, although makeup can work wonders, it can only do so much, and sometimes if you are not choosing the correct makeup, you can make the situation worse, but highlighting your imperfections. Yuk, I know!

Apply SPF Daily For Uneven Skin Tone By Barbies Beauty Bits

Apply SPF Daily
While the sun is beautiful, it is not always friendly to our skin, especially if you are going in it unprotected!  And if you are like me in my younger years, I never wore an SPF, which is the number one beast behind hyperpigmentation. The goal is to apply a moisturizer with an SPF of at least 30 at all times and all seasons of the year.

Old dead skin cell build-up is a significant reason for the skin to look dull, rough, and dry.  When we exfoliate, we can remove that build-up of old dead skin revealing the new skin cell. Another bonus when we eliminate this dead skin, it also aides moisturizers and other skincare products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, allowing them to work at their best.

Ways To Exfoliate The Skin

Skin Peels
Most of the skin cells with the darker pigment are going to be sitting on the top layer of the skin, so a chemical peel can be an excellent way to reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone drastically. However, you should stay away from bleaching peels that claim to immediately minimize uneven skin tone because they aren't effective and they are not very good for your skin. Repeated use of a normal skin peel will give you better long term results.

I love me a great Microdermabrasion, as it is a great way to remove that top layer of skin and reduce your uneven skin tone. Most treatments use fine crystals to remove the top layer of the skin gently. And while you can go to a salon to do this, it can be timely and costly, which is why I love home kits that you can use to do it yourself.  Not only will you be saving money, but the results can be just as good. And if you use it regularly, you should see a reduction in uneven skin tone and an improvement in the overall appearance of your skin.

Bottom line beauties, while uneven skin tone can be tricky, if you follow these steps, you should be able to deal with it effectively.  Until Next Time!
