7 Ways to Improve Your Skin Tone Naturally

Advertisement

Your skin tone determines a lot about your beauty and appearance. Having a splotchy, spotted or irritated face can make your makeup look worse or just give you an uneven appearance. However there are a lot of natural ways to help your face regain its even skin tone. From removing acne marks to evening out oily or dry skin, here are some natural remedies you can make at home:


Dull Skin – To make your skin bright again, you only need three ingredients. Apple cider vinegar, mineral water, and plain aspirin. Dilute ½ ounce of apple cider vinegar with 4 ounces of mineral water. Crush five aspirin and add to the water/vinegar mix. Apply to your face, let sit for two minutes and then rinse off. You face should be dull no more!

Acne Scars – As a teenager and young adult we all seem to get acne. Some of those flare-ups leave behind scarring. To even out your skin and fade the scars, try this simple recipe. Four teaspoons of lemon juice (fresh is best), 3 teaspoons of plain yogurt, 4 tablespoons of honey, and one egg white. Apply the mixture to your clean face, let sit for 15 minutes, and then rinse with warm water. Repeated applications several times a week should fade your scars in no time!

Dry Skin – This easy recipe to counter dry skin only has two ingredients: 2 tablespoons of real mayonnaise and one teaspoon of baby oil. Combine both ingredients and smooth onto your face or wherever your skin is dry. Leave on for 20 minutes and then rinse off.

Oily Skin – If you have oily skin instead, try this recipe. Combine one avocado, 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice, and one egg white into a paste. Apply the paste to your face and allow it to dry. Then rinse it off with cool water.

Exfoliate – Exfoliation is a great way to even skin tone by removing dead cells. A simple and natural exfoliate can be made with oats. Just grind a small amount of oats in a coffee grinder, food processor, or blender. Add in a few tablespoons of milk and a dash of honey. Massage the paste into your skin in circular movements and then rinse off.

Tighten – We all know that cucumbers are used to tighten up the skin around your eyes, but did you know that combining cucumber juice with lavender essential oils was a great way to both tighten your skin and even up your skin tone? In a blender put one whole, unpeeled cucumber (well washed) and puree 30 seconds or until an even consistency is reached. Add one half teaspoon lavender oil for every cup of cucumber juice. Apply to your face and leave on for 10 to 15 minutes. Then rinse with cool water. You’ll smell great when you are done and your face will be smooth and even!

Sunscreen –Last but not least, always make sure you use sunscreen under your makeup every day. Sunscreen is vitally important in keeping your face from getting sun damage like spots and wrinkles. The more you protect your face, the more even your skin tone will stay.

  2. Use a 1 tbsp. of oats and mixed with 1/2 cup of milk or yogurt. Stir together until smooth. Oats will calm the uneven texture, milk will calm the irritation.

  3. Pure, unrefined shea butter will definitely even your skin tone. However, it isn't cheap and you may not find it in the drug store.

    Drinking plenty of water, eating fresh fruits and veggies, and getting regular exercise also go a long way in improving the tone of your skin.

  5. massage your face - it can really help with circulation. There are excercises as well, like opening your mouth very wide and sticking out your tongue, then scrunching your mouth closed. But they are controversial, in that they may also cause wrinkles. Nothing but surgery helps bags under eyes.

    To improve the texture is put lotion on your skin everday and after something that was hard work put more lotion on and buy stuff that was naturally made for skin.

    Try blending the egg white and honey well and then apply on the face. This makes your skin smooth and helps to reduce wrinkles

    Its all about maintenance. Cleanse your skin well but don't use abrasive products or sponges. Do exfoliate all over with a sugar & water paste or gentle product made for skin. Moisturize all over daily and/or whenever your skid feels or looks dry. Vaseline or products with natural plant oils are best for dry skin. They nourish and moisturize fast and well. Stay out of the sun and use sunblock when possible. In short, care for your skin and give it the attention it needs.

    Apply a mixture of lemon juice and honey. Leave it for 20 minutes. Then wash it off. If you have dry skin: Apply a mixture of equal amounts of cucumber juice and honey on the face and full body for 15 minutes. Then wash it off.

    Wear plain yogurt facial masks and wash it off with milk. They are both skin lightening agents.

    Neutrogena skin care products work pretty well.
    But if you have tried a lot of stuff and nothing helps then see a dermatologist, I go to one and it helps.
