A clear, even skin tone is within your reach. In order to put your best face forward, make pigmentation a thing of the past with these even skin tone tips and tricks.

Identify the Issue

The first step to achieving a flawless complexion is to identify the pigmentation’s provenance. Not only is the right treatment for the process crucial, but if you receive the wrong treatment, it can make your discoloration even worse.

Remember that not all dark spots are created equal. They typically generate from three different sources, including exposure to harmful UV rays, hormonal fluctuations stemming from birth control or pregnancy, and injuries.

Slather on the Sunscreen

To protect your already vulnerable skin and prevent new dark spots from appearing, use sunscreen liberally if you plan on going outside. Even tiny amounts of UV ray exposure can make your pigmentation worse. To top it off, wear large sunglasses to protect your eyes and a floppy hat to cover your face and forehead.

Topical Serums

All skin types will respond well to topical bleaching creams and serums, such as a coenzyme Q10 serum or hyaluronic acid products. Hydroquinone serums also work wonders on dark spots, as they stop melanin production and speed up the natural healing process of your skin.

Exfoliate

Monthly in-office face peels thoroughly exfoliate the epidermis layer of your skin and remove the superficial pigment-packed cells, giving the skin underneath a chance to breathe.

There are many ways to beat dark spots and get a flawless, even look. Just follow the tips above to achieve gorgeous skin.
