  • Uneven Skin Tones and Home Remedies For Them

    Uneven skin tone may be caused by a variety of reasons, including both internal as well as external factors. Uneven skin tone could be a hindrance to your appearance and may sometimes be a cause of social embarrassment. You should keep in mind that a healthy looking skin is a reflection of a healthy body; hence, in order to achieve healthy skin tone, you need to focus on eating well and exercising regularly.


    However, apart from diet and exercise, uneven skin tone supplements can also be used to even out skin tone.

    Some of the causes of an uneven skin tone are hormonal imbalance, lack of sebum in the oil glands, reaction to light, and uneven build-up of melanin, leading to patchy brown appearance. While you may choose uneven skin tone supplements, it is good to know that it could also have adverse effects on your skin. These products are available in the market and promise to reduce the concentration of free radicals and melanin, regulate the sebaceous or oil glands, and relieve uneven skin tone. However, these have harmful chemicals which would affect your skin and cause much damage to it later in life. Some of the natural uneven skin tone supplements are as follows:

    • One of the most effective uneven skin tone remedies is exfoliating the skin with a mixture of yogurt or curd and grounded orange peels. You can apply the paste of your skin and remove the dead cells, which helps even out the skin tone.
    • Another effective remedy is the use of lemon juice on the skin. You can apply it on face and leave it for a while, and then wash it off.
    • Application of curd till it dries and then rubbing it off is also an effective way to even out your skin tone or complexion.
    • You can also apply tomato on your skin; massage tomato pulp for about 10 minutes to rectify an uneven skin tone. This can also help you clear blemishes and patches.
    • Another effective remedy for an uneven skin tone is cleaning your face with rose water. Dab a piece of cotton wool dipped in rose water over your face before you go to sleep at night. Rose water is an excellent natural toner, and it will help close open pores.
    • Application of honey is also an effective natural remedy to correct uneven skin tone.
    • Including a lot of fruits, vegetables, juices and pulses in your diet will also help flush out the toxins from the body, thereby evening out your skin tone.
    • You can also use chemical agents as uneven skin tone supplements; these include fruit acids, chemical peels, and beta hydroxyl lotions. However, you must use these with the prescription of a dermatologist.

    Apart from these remedies, you can also go for various uneven skin tone treatments, including microdermabrasion and laser resurfacing. These treatments are expensive and may not give desired results. As such, it is best to use natural remedies coupled with a proper diet and work-out.
