What do Halle Berry, Liv Tyler, Lucy Liu and Reese Witherspoon have in common? You guessed it right – flawlessly beautiful skin. No matter the color – whether sun-kissed or light – smooth, natural and even-toned skin is something everybody dreams of having.
However, there are quite a few causes that lead to uneven skin resulting in a tired and aged-looking complexion. Thankfully, Solvaderm has a line of products packed with only the finest ingredients, natural acids and pure actives, all proven to give an even skin tone.
What causes uneven skin tone?
Uneven skin tone can be caused by hyperpigmentation, which comes as a result of the overproduction of melanin, the brown-black pigment
which gives the hair and skin their color. Melanin absorbs the heat from the sun and protects the skin from damage brought by UV rays. However, when too much of this pigment is produced, the skin can darken in patches, causing a mottled and uneven skin tone. Hyperpigmentation skin may result from the following:
- Too much exposure to the sun. Repeated exposure to UV light from the sun causes skin damage. The body reacts to this damage by producing melanin – which appears as brown spots – to combat this damage and to protect the skin.
- Hormone stimulation. Hormonal changes caused by pregnancy, birth control pills and even hormone replacement procedures can trigger melasma – blue-gray, tan or brown spots on the face. Melasma can also come as a reaction to some medication and can be caused by irritation from certain cosmetic products
- Skin scarring. Skin injury, lesions and acne can also cause the skin to darken.
Addressing Uneven Skin Tone Issues with Solvaderm
There are different ways of evening out the skin tone. The best way, of course, is prevention, so it would be good to limit exposure to the sun, which is the major cause of hyperpigmentation. Staying hydrated by drinking the recommended eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day is also essential in keeping the skin healthy and young-looking.
Exercising and eating healthy should also be part of your beauty regimen, as these activities do not just promote health and fitness; they also lead to a healthy complexion.
In addition to these all-natural activities, you can use Solvaderm skincare products to combat hyperpigmentation that is making your skin look and feel old. Solvaderm has raised the bar for the science of skincare, with the following products that are sure to even your skin tone:
