Beauty Regime Steps To Prevent Uneven Skin Tone

Scrub to treat uneven skin tone

1. Scrub-A-Dub-Dub

Legs and arms are usually dry and dull, even if you’ve religiously exfoliated your skin throughout the year.  And so, the first step is to buff away at your hands and legs. Dullness is a result of dead skin cells that form a dense layer and can’t reflect light. So, first, you’ve gotta get rid of ‘em ASAP.

You need something like these gritty- textured scrubs; The Body Shop Dead Sea Salt Scrub or The Forest Essentials Body Polisher that instantly exfoliates that dead top layer, sending a rush of blood to your skin to give it that much needed color and tone. Remember, when you exfoliate, everything you apply afterwards stays anchored to your skin, whether it’s moisturiser or make-up. So, start scrubbing...

2. Brush That Body

We like to call it the juice cleanse of the beauty world—dry brushing is meant to cure everything from dullness and cellulite to dimpled skin and puffiness when your lymph nodes aren’t draining properly. The Body Shop Long Handled Cactus Bath Brush is a firm-bristled brush wonder. It gives your skin a thorough brush down and decreases fluid retention and helps stimulate And a boost in circulation from the dry brushing will definitely leave skin plump and radiant.

3. Lock In The Moisture

This is not a step you want to skip. Slathering on a moisturiser is as routine as showering everyday before work. Pick one that has skin polishing AHA’ s or Glycolic acid, it makes a HUGE difference when it comes to ingrowths, bumps and dry and flaky patches and is excellent when it comes to achieving that refined and sheeny skin texture you’re craving. We love the no-fuss Nykaa Wanderlust Body Lotion . It just seeps into skin the instant you apply it without a hint of greasiness.

4. Spray away

This product is an instant solution on ‘How to get even skin tone on legs?’ A layer of Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs Water Resistant Deep Glow skin perfecting mist can conceal everything from spider veins, scars, brown spots, cellulite, and of course, instantly create an illusion of more pronounced contours—you will need to use an applicator mitt to apply it though! It will make your life so much easier and leave you with a smooth and immaculate finish, with no streaks in sight. The best part? It dries instantly so you won’t have to worry about it rubbing off on your satin mini.

5. Contour Away!

Bring on some serious definition to your stems with a contouring stick. Yes, contouring is no longer restricted to chiselling your cheekbones and sculpting your jawline, you can go all out and use this technique all over your body to get rid of uneven skin tone. Here’s how - use a darker shade of Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Contour - Curvy Contour down the side of the legs and a much lighter one through the centre to slim the legs down. It’s an easy way to highlight with shine down the centre of the leg to elongate it. (think of it the same way you would contour your nose or face)

6. Bling It On

Lock in your faux glow and hide any remaining spots or bumps with this Dirty Works Bling It On Shimmer Body Lotion. It's also ultra-hydrating and infused with Sweet Almond Oil, Shea Butter and Peppermint. Just dot a small amount down the shin, around the contour of the calf muscle, and at the center of the thigh. Shimmer only looks convincing when you apply it strategically. You will instantly see your stems looking smooth, hydrated, longer, leaner, and more toned.
