You’ve worked so hard to achieve this perfect body you have right now. Toned and sculpted, you’re ready to hit the beach in your swim wear to show off the fruits of your labor. Almost! You look at yourself in front of the mirror and you can’t help but get dismayed over the unsightly unevenness of your skin tone. The good news is, you can solve this problem right away. Here are some treatments you can use to even out your skin tone.
An exfoliating scrub not only enhances the nutrition of your skin, but also helps remove the topmost layer to reveal softer and healthier skin underneath. This treatment is designed to shed off the dead skin cells to promote the growth of fresh new skin. In a short period, you will notice that the dark spots would fade significantly. Exfoliating scrubs are available as commercial products but it’s also possible for you to make your own. Spa ingredients can be purchased online or in the local market. The most important ingredient is the exfoliant, which can be anything from turbinado sugar, fruit seeds, fruit fibers, pumice, ground walnut shells, shredded coconuts, and salt grains.
Overexposure to the sun’s UV rays is a common cause of uneven skin tone. This is why, it would help a lot to wear sunscreen everyday 30 minutes before going out. It doesn’t matter whether it’s sunny or not, since UV rays can penetrate through clouds. Make sure you get the right sunscreen. Pick the one that has a high SPF and has protection against both UVA and UVB rays. It would be a good idea to get a product that comes with moisturizer so that your skin will be kept hydrated all day long.
A chemical peel is another effective option when it comes to treatment for uneven skin. Applying alpha hydroxyl acids on the skin will remove damaged top layers and dead cells that carry uneven pigment. It doesn’t only even out the skin tone, it can also remove acne, acne scars, age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, freckles, rough skin, scaly patches, and other scars.
For heavier cases of uneven skin pigmentation, laser resurfacing should be in order. In this method, concentrated beams of light are directed onto the skin to remove skin layer by layer. After these layers are removed, tissue growth and collagen production are stimulated to make your skin look smoother and firmer. Laser resurfacing is also known by other names like laser peel, laser vaporization, and lasabrasion. This popular method can also be used for removing freckles, acne scars and birth marks.
While laser resurfacing makes use of light, microdermabrasion removes topmost skin layer through the procedure of sanding. It may sound painful but it’s not. And after slight redness on the skin for a short while, the result will be healthier glowing skin with even pigmentation.
All these treatments are viable options for an uneven skin tone. Just make sure you study each choice well so you can make an informed decision.
