Whether you or someone you know suffers from a skin condition, the best way to get it medically treated is through your local GP. However, if prescribed creams, ointments and treatments aren’t exactly working wonders, there is no shame in trying the natural route. Did you know you could treat your skin with products from the pantry? Read on for our best ways to treat uneven skin tone.
Exfoliating is a great way to remove dry or dead skin cells off the surface for a smoother, radiant appearance. There are many exfoliators from department stores right down to your local supermarket, but you could make a personalised concoction right at home. All you need is brown sugar, baking soda, coffee and oatmeal at the foundation of each scrub. Top off with your choice of honey, avocado and a drop of lemon to invigorate the skin.
The most common source of uneven skin tone is unprotected exposure to the sun. Remember to apply sunscreen on your face and body when heading out in hot temperatures, or wear a foundation with an added SPF. Treat yourself to a fresh aloe vera treatment which not only cleanses the skin, but repairs damage from the sun, and helps with acne.
Fruits and vegetables
Clean your body from the inside out by making a variety of juices with fruits and vegetables. They help to flush the body of harmful toxins, and act as an inexpensive way to detox your immune system. Avocado, broccoli, ginger and lemons are your best friend if you are looking for clearer skin tone. Avoid refined sugars and over-processed foods during this detox.
A consistent skincare routine will help to resolve any uneven skin tone. Cleansing, moisturising and toning the skin on a daily basis will give your skin enough hydration throughout the day, and added moisture throughout the night to avoid breakouts or discolouration. Rose hip oil is an inexpensive ointment and when used consistently will reduce the appearance of ageing, treat uneven skin, dry skin and will help you look youthful and fresh.
