Do you suffer with blotchy, red skin? Have you trouble getting rid of uneven skin tone? Don’t worry, you aren’t alone. Many of us wake up every day to blotchy skin which has an effect on our appearance and confidence. Whether you see red, white or dark patches on your skin, there are ways to tackle this problem. This article will discuss blotchy skin and how to successfully deal with the problem of an uneven tone.
What is blotchy skin?
Blotchiness and uneven skin tone can be explained by a number of factors, it can be caused by various things including sun exposure, chemical disturbances and hereditary factors. Having an uneven skin tone means you have patches on your face which are a different colour to everywhere else. The tone of the skin stands out because it doesn’t look the same as the rest of your face.
If you don’t regularly exfoliate, blotchiness can be even more prominent because of dead skin on the surface of your face.
Here are some of the habits that could be causing you to have a blotchy appearance or uneven skin tone.
Severe Product Choices
If you are using harsh soap products on your face, it weakens your skin’s defensive barrier, causing you to lose essential oils. Scrubbing your face too hard with a strong facial soap can also remove other important compounds like healthy fatty acids and ceramides.
All of this combines to irritate and annoy your skin, leading to blotchiness. It is important to choose the right cleanser, a natural facial soap which is free of chemicals may be a better option for your skin.
Using a Face Mask
Applying a brightening face mask (แผ่น มาร์ค หน้า ยี่ห้อ ไหน ดี in Thai) helps to unclog pores and deeply cleanse your skin, giving it a healthy glow and even tone. Many of us are yet to take advantage of face masks in our skin care routine, but they are packed full of hydration and minerals.
Don’t get me wrong, exfoliating is great for your skin, it isn’t something you need to remove from your skin care regime, it’s just something that needs to be controlled.
We naturally shed millions of dead skin cells from our face, it doesn’t take a lot to get rid of them, but if you over exfoliate, you can damage healthy cells underneath. Too much exfoliation can harm your skin, causing blotchy patches to appear on your face.
One of the main reasons why we suffer from blotchy and uneven skin tones is because we forget to apply sunscreen to our face. UV exposure causes aging and brown spots, so remember to apply SPF 30+ before you venture outdoors. In addition, limit the amount of time you spend in the sun.
Managing blotchy and uneven skin tones doesn’t have to be a challenge, once you follow the tips mentioned above and eat a healthy, balanced diet, your skin will look 10 times better than it does. You must be patient when pursuing a solution, the answer won’t come overnight, but persistence pays off in the end.
