    Home remedies for uneven skin

    Why rely on concealers and foundations to cover uneven patches on your skin when you can even out your skin tone naturally? We’ll show you how to easily whip up DIY face masks right at home to help balance your skin tone.

    Uneven skin tone is a common skin condition where certain parts of your skin become darker than others, giving your skin an inconsistent colour and a blotchy appearance.

    This can occur due to several factors:

    • Sun Exposure: Excessive exposure to the sun can lead to dark patches on the skin, as the skin produces more melanin to protect itself from UV rays.
    • Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation: Scars from wounds or acne can darken and create uneven skin tone.
    • Hormonal Changes: Imbalances in hormones, such as during pregnancy or due to certain medications, can increase melanin production and lead to uneven skin tone.
    • Aging: As we age, our skin may develop age spots or become discolored.
    • Skin Conditions: Conditions like psoriasis and eczema can cause inflammation and discoloration of the skin.
    • Fungal Infections: Infections like tinea versicolor can lead to discoloured patches on the skin.

    To address uneven skin tone, you can try natural remedies that help clear impurities and dead skin cells, and fade signs of environmental damage to improve skin clarity and brightness. Here are some DIY face masks you can try at home:
