Did you know a unit of Maybelline New York’s Instant Age Rewind concealer is sold every five seconds?

Why is this?

This concealer was named the highest sold concealer in the U.S. in 2019, selling over $50 million worth of concealer. People crave an even skin tone and an “Instagram ready” look.

But concealers are just what their name suggests. They conceal uneven skin tone, dark circles, blemishes, and the like, but they don’t address the root of the problem.

In this blog, learn about five ways to reduce uneven skin tone.

  1. Wear sunscreen every day
    It may be 55 degrees outside and cloudy, but the sun rises every morning. Make sure to incorporate sunscreen into your morning skincare routine to protect your skin against UV light. UV light is what activates melanin production in your skin, which can cause brown spots.
  2. Don’t pick your skin
    Whether it’s a pimple, dryness or acne, picking your skin or popping a zit can cause redness and irritation to the skin. Doing so can worsen your condition and your struggle with hyperpigmentation will continue.
  3.  Avoid certain foods
    If you find yourself struggling with uneven skin tones all of a sudden and you have a balanced skin care routine and you aren’t pregnant, the food you ate may be triggering the tone of your skin.
    Foods to avoid if you’re looking to even out your skin tone include:
    ● Alcohol
    ● Spicy food
    ● Food high in refined sugars
    ● Overly processed and greasy foods
    ● Dairy
  4. Undergo a chemical peel
    A chemical peel is a cosmetic treatment to remove damaged skin cells on the top layer of your skin to reveal the healthy skin underneath using chemicals. A light chemical peel requires little down time, but a medium or deep chemical peel can require up to three weeks of recovery.
    Chemical peels are a useful treatment for conditions like:
    ● uneven skin tone or redness
    ● sun damage
    ● wrinkles and fine lines
    ● acne scars
    ● hyperpigmentation
    ● scars
    ● Melasma
