When it comes to uneven skin tone it includes melasma, genetic freckles, age spots or sun damage, hyper-pigmentation e.t.c.
There are many reasons why uneven skin tone occurs, first, hyper-pigmentation occurs when there is high production of melanin. The skin produces high melanin when the skin cells sense they’re in danger, e.g a cut around the skin will cause the production of melanin to protect the damaged skin which can most time lead to a dark spot.
The second reason for having uneven skin tone can be due to dark spots – dark spots occur when the skin becomes bad-tempered leading to breakouts/acne and so on. In the process of the skin healing itself, scar residues can be left behind leading to dark spots.
Another reason for having uneven skin tone can be due to melasma – Melasma occurs due to too much exposure to the sun hence lending to sun damage. The result of sun damage is called melasma or age spots.
Sometimes if not most times, uneven skin tone is just mother nature and there’s nothing you can do about it. It’s in genetics and inherited from parents.
So with all these in mind, whether your uneven skin tone is mother nature, age spots, sun damage, or hyperpigmentation, there is a solution to cure this skin issue we all face. The solution? Dark spot correctors.
When it comes to choosing or buying dark spot correctors, skin-loving ingredients should be the main priority. It’s good to look out for ingredients like fruit enzymes, vitamin C that brightens the skin, Kojic acid that fades hyper-pigmentation, turmeric, AHAs, BHAs, exfoliating salicylic acid, antioxidants, glycolic acid e.t.c.
Finally, in as much as wearing your SPFs every day is very important, adding dark spot correctors to your skincare routine is also as important, with that you ‘protect, treat, and prevent’ because wearing sunscreen does not mean you won’t get a sunburn, you’ve only prevented the damage it causes to the skin cell the burn should also be looked after (that’s where aftersun creams and dark spot correctors come in ).
