Sometimes, you can have skin which is completely free from blemishes, not too dry, not too oily, not prone to any other issue, but still suffer with an uneven skin tone. Many women are happy to cover an uneven skin tone with make up, but that still leaves us lacking confidence when make-up free. We thought we’d take a look at some of our best products for evening-out your skin tone to ensure that you’re showing peak confidence, even without a full face of foundation:
This serum from Dermalogica is a potent ally against hyperpigmentation and areas of uneven skin tone. It contains a unique and specially selected blend of oligopeptides, rice-derived phytic acid, zinc glycinate and algae to attack pigmentation imbalance. It’s most effective when used twice daily after cleansing and should be left to soak in for at least a minute before applying anything else to your face.
Elemis is so confident that this serum will improve the appearance of uneven skin, it guarantees that you will see results after just 28 days of usage. It contains a unique combination of daisy and pea extracts which work with encapsulated vitamin C to brighten the skin and reduce the appearance of dark spots, age spots and existing imperfections.
Something which can worsen the appearance of uneven skin is failing to exfoliate properly. Dull, dead skin cells will cling to the surface and make areas of hyperpigmentation appear worse, which is why it’s important to slough them away. This microfoliant from Dermalogica is powerful enough to drastically improve your skin but is also gentle enough to be used on a daily basis without making skin sore and sensitised. Follow with their C-12 Pure Bright Serum and your skin will look flawless in no time at all.
This mask from Elemis does such an intense job of resurfacing your skin, that they recommend that you limit your sun exposure while using it as the new skin which is revealed after use will be brand new and very sensitive. Once applied to the face, you can actually feel the mask working on your skin as a tingling sensation, and a combination of powerful botanicals and targeted enzymes encourage the breakdown of dead skin cells and promote cell regeneration.
It makes sense to use more powerful products at night, when they’ve got a chance to properly soak in and you don’t need to worry about applying make-up over the top. This night cream from Dermalogica actually helps to reduce melanin production, which stops future hyperpigmentation from forming, as well as improving barrier protection against moisture loss and strengthening against environmental damage.
