A common skin problem that many women face, especially with age, is uneven skin tone. Even if the skin is healthy, excessive sun exposure or medications can leave marks on the skin in the form of age spots and dark patches that are extremely stubborn and takes a lot of effort to get rid of. Pollution is another big cause of uneven skin texture. If you have an uneven skin tone and are looking for ways to correct it, then it's time to strictly follow a skincare regime. Doing so will help in regulating oil production, smoothen skin texture and reduce the appearance of blemishes to keep your skin beautiful.
You don't really require an elaborate beauty regime to maintain a good skin tone. All you need to do is make few smart changes that include:
1. Cleanse and Moisturise
Firstly, you need to ensure that you are taking care of your skin and should adopt a good skin care regimen if you do not already have one. You should aim to cleanse and moisturise your face twice a day and never go to sleep wearing makeup. Moisturising your skin is essential to replenish the depleted minerals, keep the skin hydrated and protect it from various elements that cause ageing and uneven skin texture.
