Our skin contains a pigment called melanin that protects us from the sun. However, there could be a case when there could be an uneven accumulation of melanin. Many women battle with uneven skin tone on their face and the rest of their body which causes them to feel self-conscious about their physical appearance.

Uneven skin tone usually occurs as a result of excessive production of melanin, scarring, exposure to UV rays, or sometimes something seemingly unrelated such as hormonal changes within the body. With dry skin, cells may lack sebum causing cracked and unhealthy skin. So dry skin is prone to get damaged and discoloured easily. Also, skin texture can become uneven due to UV damage, dehydration, poor lifestyle choices, natural ageing, and poor circulation

Women with uneven skin tone tend to appear more tired than they actually, unhealthy and may feel insecure to never leave the house fresh-faced and free of makeup. Everyone wishes to have healthy, radiant skin and we believe that everyone deserves to feel comfortable in their own skin and have compiled a list of ways you can visibly reduce the appearance of the uneven skin tone on your face without paying a small fortune.


Exfoliation is the main key to avoid uneven skin tone.To create even, flawless skin, exfoliation is an absolute necessity. In addition to solving uneven skin texture, exfoliating also helps unclog pores, minimize the appearance of dark under eye circles and crows feet, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, and lessen excess oil production. You should also exfoliate the skin on your face a couple of times a week using a gentle exfoliant to improve the overall appearance of your skin.

Wear SPF

The sun can be your best and your worst enemy, period. UV exposure is the common factor that damages both skin texture and colour. It is crucial to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 30 every day if you truly want to achieve an even skin tone because it protects your skin from the UVA (these cause ageing) and UVB (these make you burn) rays.

Moisturize, Cleanse, & Tone

Cleansing the skin and moisturizing are two more vital “must dos” to reduce uneven skin tone. Hydrating your skin is the key to keeping it healthy. Don’t overlook the importance of toner just because you don’t notice results overnight. Nobody does. Toners refine and shrink the size of our pores if and only if used regularly. Vitamin-C based moisturizers contain Vitamin-C (obviously), an antioxidant which works to lighten hyperpigmentation and prevent further spots.
