6 Effective Remedies for Clear Skin Tone

6 Effective Remedies For Clear Skin Tone 

Many of us wish for evenly toned, radiant and healthy skin. However, due to certain reasons, our skin can seem dull and may develop hyperpigmentation. This can make it appear tired and uneven. Let’s understand the causes of uneven skin tone and learn how to get clear skin at home with natural remedies. 


Causes Of Uneven Skin Tone On Face 

1.  Hormonal Imbalance
Our body goes through a lot of hormonal changes, especially during our teens or pregnancy. Most often this kind of hormonal imbalance leads to an uneven skin tone.

2.  Sun Damage
UV rays of the sun can damage the skin. When our skin is exposed to the sun, the naturally occurring melanin in our body increases to prevent any further damage. This is one of the common reasons that leads to more melanin production and thus uneven skin tone.

3.  Pollution
The number of dust particles that get accumulated on our skin due to air pollution can also lead to dull skin and pigmentation over time.

4.  Post-Inflammatory Pigmentation
This kind of skin condition takes place due to scarring caused by acne, wounds, or burns.

5.  Medication
Certain medications can have side effects that cause pigmentation on the skin.


Home Remedies For Uneven Skin Tone On Face 

Following are the best natural remedies that explain how to get clear and glowing skin throughout the year. Remember to patch test DIY recipes before using them on the face. 

1.   Aloe Vera And Coffee Mask - 

Aloe vera gel is rich in aloin, a compound that promotes clear skin. Caffeine reduces dullness and improves your skin tone. Mix 1 tablespoon of organic aloe vera gel with ¼ teaspoon of coffee powder. Apply it on your face and neck and leave it on for 15 minutes. Rinse it off with cool water and pat your skin dry. 

2.   Tomato Avocado Mask -

Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, a pigment that helps in fighting cell damage caused by free radicals. It also brightens your skin tone.. Avocados are rich in essential fatty acids that help nourish your skin. Make a paste of fresh avocado pulp and tomato juice and apply it to your skin for bright and radiant skin. Rinse it off after 15 minutes and pat your skin dry. 

3.   Orange Clay Mask

Orange peels have antioxidant properties that keep skin discolouration at bay. Mix 1 teaspoon of orange peel powder and 2 teaspoons of multani mitti with enough rose water to get a smooth paste. Apply it on your face and neck. Wash it off after 20 minutes. This mask deeply cleanses your skin, removes excess oil and reduces acne, tan and dullness. 

4.   Turmeric And Oatmeal Mask

Turmeric contains antioxidant properties which helps in brightening your skin tone and oatmeal helps in soothing inflammation. Take 1 tablespoon of powdered oats and a pinch of turmeric powder in a clean bowl. Add enough rose water to get a smooth, mushy paste. Apply it on your face and neck and leave it on for 15 minutes. Rinse your skin with lukewarm water and pat dry. 

5.   Sandalwood Paste

Sandalwood repairs sun damage and rose water helps brighten your skin tone. Make a paste of sandalwood powder and rose water. Apply it evenly on your face and leave it for 15 minutes before you rinse it off. 

Note - Indian sandalwood is an endangered species. We recommend using a sustainable variety of sandalwood, such as Australian sandalwood. 

6.   Papaya Pack

Papaya contains vitamins A and C to improve your complexion, and an enzyme called papain which gently exfoliates your skin. Massage fresh papaya pulp on your face and neck for 5 minutes. Leave it on your skin for 15 minutes. Rinse it off with cool water and pat your skin dry. 


How To Get Clear Skin Apart From Using Home Remedies? 

1.   Take Healthy Meals

A good diet always promotes good skin health. It is the best way to keep your skin glowing and maintain its youth. 

2.   Use Suitable Skin Care Products

Understand your skin type and build a suitable skin care routine according to your skin’s needs. 

3.   Hydrate Yourself

Make sure to always have an adequate amount of water throughout the day. It helps to keep your skin clear, hydrated and glowing. 

4.   Sleep Well

Our skin repairs itself while we are sleeping. Proper rest and sound sleep keeps your skin fresh and glowing the next day. 


Tips To Prevent Uneven Skin Tone 

1.   Avoid Excess Exfoliation

We recommend exfoliating your skin once or twice a week to buff away dead skin cells. Excess exfoliation disrupts the barrier function of the skin and leads to hyperpigmentation and dullness. 

2.   Have A Consistent Routine

A basic 3-step skin care routine of cleansing, toning and moisturising helps to keep our skin clean and hydrated. Regular skin care helps to improve your skin tone in the long run. 

3.   Use Sunscreen

Sunscreen protects our skin from UV damage. Skipping sun protection can lead to photo-ageing and dark spots.
