Achieving a perfect, smooth, healthy glow is everyone’s ideal complexion. However, many factors prevent people from this ideal smooth, even skin tone, including texture issues and pigmentation of various kinds. So for those looking for the best products and a step-by-step plan to help fix the appearance of uneven skin tone, Epicuren Discovery is here to help.
What is an Uneven Skin Tone?
An uneven skin tone can be any number of things that cause a person’s face to not appear uniform all over. Large pores, freckles, age spots, and redness can all contribute to an uneven skin tone, and not all of these can be prevented. The ideal even skin tone is one with non-visible or small pores, even oil distribution, and a single color appearance throughout the entire face.
What Causes Uneven Skin Tone?
As many factors contribute to uneven skin tone, there are many causes. A chief concern among people looking for an even skin tone is acne and acne scarring. Active acne breakouts obviously create an uneven skin tone, and the lasting effects of cystic acne can contribute to a mottled or scarred appearance, affecting skin tone in the long run.
The natural process of aging can cause uneven skin tone, as can sun exposure that leads to freckles, age spots, and fine lines. You can prevent sun damage by always wearing sunscreen, even if you aren’t going to be outside for a long time. Anti-aging products that provide deep hydration and support for aging skin are also helpful at keeping skin bright and beautiful and even.
How to Naturally Even Your Skin Tone
For those of us who haven’t had the most evening skin tone routine for our entire lives, there’s a few ways to get our skin back on track with a comprehensive routine and Epicuren Discovery’s high-quality products.
Step 1: Cleanse with an Exfoliating Scrub
As the beginning of any good skincare routine, first cleanse your face. However, we recommend cleaning it thoroughly with a good exfoliant, like our Micro-Derm Ultra-Refining Scrub to really get your skin ready for the treatments it’s about to receive. This is a great product for your face, but for evening skin tone throughout your body, try a physical exfoliator, like our Mint Renewal Body Polish.
Step 2: Balance Skin with Toner
After exfoliating, you’ll need to re-balance the skin’s surface use. Use our Protein Mist Enzyme Toner , a refreshing mist that helps skin look moisturized and refined.
Step 3: Address Discoloration
For those who are frustrated with discoloration either of dark circles, redness, or sun spots, we have a solution for you. Before addressing the specific under-eye area, use our Prevention and Correction Duo of Vitamin C complex formula to help the appearance of these problem areas.
Step 4: Treat Below Your Eyes
The under-eye area reveals a lot about your age and even how much sleep you got last night, which means it deserves its own focus during this routine. Especially for those who struggle with dark circles under their eyes, our Eye Alive Serum is perfect for this sensitive area, helping to both brighten this delicate area and moisturize with daily use.
Step 5: Moisturize with UV Protection
Once you’ve used all your specialty products and serums, it’s time to hydrate for the rest of the day. Given the importance of having good sun protection, we like a two-layered approach, using a good SPF moisturizer in addition to sunscreen application once the moisturizer has been absorbed. Our Defend and Balance tinted sunscreen is perfect because not only does it offer UV protection, but also helps even the appearance of the skin tone.
Step 6: Use Sunscreen Daily
Finally, pick a sunscreen that works best for you, whether in a tub or bottle, and according to your preferences. Sunscreen helps protects against all kinds of negative side effects of sun exposure, nearly all of which come back to an uneven skin tone.
