Having an even skin tone can be quite a difficult achievement to get nowadays. With our constant exposure to the sun, it’s a little unsettling how darker our skin gets day by day. While we can always turn to the long rows of commercial products available at a purchase, the thought of more chemicals on your skin can be daunting.
There’s no need to worry as there is an alternative to getting even skin tone without having to dab commercial products onto your skin. You’ll be more relieved to hear that these are not only natural but can also be found at home. That’s like hitting two birds with one stone.
Here are the items to help you get the even ton without using commercial products:
- Sugar and or salt to exfoliate. While we can’t use these crystals for your face, oatmeal soaked in olive oil should do the trick. Using salt or sugar with a helping of olive oil, scrub the mixture on your skin to cleanse it of the layer of dirt and dead skin cells. Exfoliating helps in clearing out the impurities thus getting you an even texture and complexion.
- Kiwi can help lighten the dark circles under your eyes. This doesn’t mean it’s okay to skimp on the sleep though.
- If you don’t have Kiwi, you can use green tea. Simply apply the cold tea bags on dark areas and let it sit for at least fifteen minutes before rinsing off.
- When life gives you lemons, make use of lemon juice on your skin! Due to its natural acidity, this gives your skin a light exfoliation and you can benefit from a lighter and more radiant result. This is due to the presence of ascorbic acid, or vitamin c as we all know it, in the lemon juice.
With these simple steps, you can enjoy an even tone without having to spend so much or to make use of dubious ingredients.
