Hello SOTGC community,
This article is aimed at helping those ladies who have uneven skin tone, but want to use a natural process to even out those tones. Skin, being the most sensitive of all the organs in the body is always the first to get affected by any form of abnormality be it in relation to diet, lifestyle or health issues. Thus the incorrect diet comprising of too much of junk or oily food, or that crazy lifestyle which involves working round the clock and travelling to places in flash of an eye or other health issues are going to primarily reflect in your skin texture through signs of early ageing namely wrinkles, acnes and uneven skin tone. Melanin, a pigment contained in our skin, is the one responsible for determining the skin color, thus higher the proportion of melanin, darker the skin. Several women nowadays complain from problems of hyper pigmentation which is nothing but uneven distribution of melanin inside the skin tissues resulting in the appearance of ugly black spots or white spots reflecting an uneven tone with a patchy skin. The reason for such hyper pigmentation can be anything from over-exposure to sun and even hormonal imbalances.
Thus, in order to sort out your skin woes in this regard we come up with a list of natural remedies to get that skin tone even:
Exfoliation is the Key
For women working or living in the metros, providing your skin with an absolute protection against the sun or the pollution is a complete myth. Hence always remember to exfoliate your skin atleast twice a week to get rid of the unwanted dirt and clear out your pores. Concentrate mainly on sides of your nose, corners of your eyes and the forehead, since these are the spots which are often neglected during regular cleansing and may result in uneven skin tone. Use a paste of yoghurt and orange juice as a scrub to scrub that skin to remove the dead skin cells and get that anti-wrinkle look.
As much as the skin care products available in the market promises to do wonders for your skin, but too much of any chemical can be bad for your skin. Thus, if you are particularly facing problems of uneven skin tone, give up on your branded products for sometime and trust the nature. Get hold of few aloe-vera stems and grind them to get that viscous translucent juice. Apply it evenly on the skin and leave it it overnight. Wash off next morning with cold water and notice visible differences in skin tone.
The Natural Cleanser
To get rid of skin woes or to keep them at bay in the first place, cleansing is one routine that needs to be followed religiously. For women above 30, we would suggest a cleanser with anti-wrinkle properties preferably from a recognized brand. For women in their mid 20’s or teens, we would suggest using a mild cleanser or a natural one. Just pour over some rose water over damp cotton balls and use it as a wipe for your face 15 minutes before your bed time. As many would know, rose water acts an amazing toner and unclogs the pores.
Finally the Bleach
Like, we promised you this is going to be a completely natural skin care regime, here we recommend you a completely organic bleach. Use a mask of lemon juice mixed with 2 table spoon of honey and yoghurt atleast twice a week on that face of your’s. Keep it on for 30 minutes and wash off with mildly cold water. The suggested pack not only works as a natural bleach but also works wonders as a de-tanning agent.
Over and above, keep in mind that uneven skin tone can not only be cured but even prevented in the first place. For that, always use a sun block irrespective of the weather and never forget to carry an umbrella when travelling outside in the sun.
