Some creams do double duty and lighten hyperpigmentation and lighten the skin several shades if applied to the entire face, entire body, etc.  However, what do you use when you want to remove dark spots, acne marks, and sun damage without lightening your skin tone?  Depending on what your skin care goals are, even tone skin is always desirable, so here's how you get it.

What Causes Uneven Skin Tone

Lightening hyperpigmentation doesn't have to be difficult.  It is a process that isn't going to happen overnight but it can be done with both patience and persistence.  Blotchy and uneven skin can be caused by things like sun damage, acne scars and marks, melasma, hormones, skin conditions like eczema, etc.  These things tend to stay on the skin for a long period of time unless a good skincare regimen is practiced in order to remove the dark patches of skin asap.

How to Even Tone the Skin

1. Make sure that the skin and face is clean before applying any additional product to it.  Starting with a gentle cleanser to ensure a clean base which will also allow for the skincare products that you apply afterward to be properly absorbed and helps them to work to the best of their ability.  Part of keeping the skin clean and healthy is also exfoliating at least once weekly with a gentle scrub or other exfoliating device.

2. Apply a moisturizing skin brightening cream that can also remove hyperpigmentation and as a bonus makes the skin look more youthful.  This is one of the most important steps and it is also important to make sure that to get the desired result, application is done religiously.

3. Apply sunblock daily.  This step should be the last step of your skincare routine and is what will prevent any dark patches and dark spots that you've removed from the skin from recurring.  SPF15 or above daily is what is recommended and also sun protection to avoid tanning the skin.

 

Following these steps will help you to remove hyperpigmentation without lightening the skin tone overall but still produce bright and glowing skin.  For more information on the products that are best for your skin please live chat on this website with one of our skin care specialists 24/7.
