Why is My Skin Tone Uneven?

First things first - uneven skin tone is completely normal. It can affect anyone and everyone, regardless of age or gender. But what causes it? It's all about melanin - the pigment that gives our skin its colour. If you've got too much melanin in some areas, you'll see darker patches (hyperpigmentation). Too little melanin can cause lighter patches (hypopigmentation). Common signs of uneven skin tone include dark spots, freckles, acne scars, sun damage, and redness. But don't worry - with the right skincare routine and our specially formulated products, you can get that even glow you've been dreaming of.


What Causes Uneven Skin Tone?

So, what's causing your uneven skin tone? There's a whole host of factors, from environmental issues like sun exposure and pollution, to lifestyle habits and certain medical conditions. But the key to getting that even skin tone is understanding what's causing the problem in the first place. Then, with our skincare products and a few lifestyle tweaks, you can start working towards that radiant, balanced complexion.


Evening Out Your Skin Tone

Want a simple way to even out your skin tone? You're in luck! Vitamin C is a powerful skin-brightening agent that can help reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3, can also help regulate melanin production. Plus, staying hydrated and eating a balanced diet can work wonders for your skin. Remember, achieving an even skin tone takes time, so be patient. But with our products and these natural remedies, you'll be well on your way to a glowing complexion.

How to get an even skin tone

Ready to level up your skincare routine? Here are three products that can help you achieve that even skin tone:

1. Exfoliator

Keep your skin smooth and balanced with regular exfoliation. Often the cause of dullness, dead skin cells can build up and cause uneven skin tone and exfoliation is a great effective way to lift them away from the skin and reveal smoother complexions. 

Harsh gritty scrubs might come to mind when thinking about exfoliating your skin, but they’ve become far more advanced than what they used to be. Take our GLOWCOLIC Resurfacing Toner, does exactly what it says in the tin to help get rid of uneven skin tone by dissolving the glue bonds holding dead skin cells to your skin. With a fusion of AHAs like glycolic, lactic and mandelic acids, this works to gently lift away those dead skin cells with ease.

Another super exfoliator is our MOST REVEALING Glowing Skin Oxygen Peel which is a transformative mask changing from a cool orange gel to fizzing bubbles that exfoliate away. Again, using a concoction of AHAs to remove the build-up of dead skin cells, alongside soothing vitamin A and E, nourishing sodium hyaluronate and apple fruit extract, orange peel oil and bergamot oil for an uplifting zesty feeling. 

2. Brightening Serum

Target dark spots and uneven skin tone with a brightening serum. Serums are highly concentrated blends of ingredients with targeted functions, so to target uneven skin tone you’ll want to be looking for a brightening vitamin c serum. 

Our LET’S CONCENTRATE Skin Glowing Serum combines our vitamin C ascorbyl glucoside with alpha arbutin, sodium hyaluronate and minerals to revive, tone and hydrate the skin. The ingredients work in synergy to visibly energise the skin, combat hyperpigmentation for an even skin tone and help banish blemishes!

3. SPF

Protect your skin from sun damage with a daily SPF. Although some uneven skin tone is caused by genetics, a lot can be prevented with daily protection from an SPF moisturiser. They’re not just for the warmer months, but seasonally the sun’s rays can penetrate our skin throughout the year when we don’t know it. 

Our LIFE DEFENCE SPF50/30 High Protection Moisturiser is a feather-light hero, with UVA/UVB broad-spectrum protection so you’re defended from free radicals, sunlight, air con and blue light emitted from our digital screens. This preventative measure is essential for anyone looking to help even their skin tone. 

Remember, consistency is key when it comes to skincare. Stick with your routine, and you'll be seeing results in no time!


How to Prevent Uneven Skin Tone

Want to keep your skin tone even in the long run? It's all about consistency. Start with a daily skincare routine, including cleansing, toning, and moisturising. Protect your skin from the sun with a daily SPF, and make sure to keep checking in with your skin to see the difference. With a few lifestyle changes and the right skincare routine, you can keep your skin looking radiant and even.
