It could be that you have your finals week coming up or you have that big project at work that you’re always working on. Whatever your circumstance is, it’s safe to say that your skin is probably suffering with you too. You’re probably noticing a big difference in the quality of your skin. Your complexion is probably starting to become dull, and your skin is starting to look uneven. How do you combat these? Read on to find out!
This one is a no-brainer. You can use a concealer to cover up those pesky veins to make your skin look more even. You can also use it to conceal any spots brought by any zits that might have popped up, pun intended.
2. Purple concealer
You have probably seen one of these at the department store, and you’ve probably wondered who would ever put on lavender colored gunk on their face. What you don’t know is that this stuff combats dull complexion like a pro. Lilac is the complete opposite of the color yellow on the color wheel, making it extremely effective at evening out uneven skin tone caused by dull or yellow undertones.
Keep bronzer in your makeup kit when you’re feeling especially dull looking. Dusting on the right amount on (emphasis on the word right as some people can go overboard with this stuff) can completely elevate your look making you look glowing and youthful.
4. BB Cream
You’ve probably heard of BB creams. These beauty balms came all the way from Asia. The great thing about these are the fact that not only does their light to medium coverage even out skin tone; most these also contain SPF which can fight early signs of photo aging.
A highlight can do wonders to an otherwise tired looking face. A highlight tends to, well, highlight important features are making them more pronounced and making you look more radiant than ever. Just remember to highlight parts of your forehead, nose, cheeks, chin and also the cupid’s bow of your upper lip.
6. Green Concealer
Just like the purple concealer, this is more successful when combating specific skin issues. Green concealer is great at neutralizing any green colors or tones on the skin. This makes it perfect for zapping any spots such as those that may be caused by acne, rosacea or any spots resulting from skin pigmentation disorder. Just a little dab of this stuff before putting on your actual concealer makes all the difference in the world.
We have now thoroughly discussed ways to neutralize and even the skin tone through makeup. However, nothing beats good old fashion skin care to get a perfect looking skin. In connection to this, never forget to exfoliate your face at least once a week to remove any dead skin cells.
We all know how important it is to always apply sunscreen on a daily basis, regardless of the season. Sunscreen does not only protect you from harsh UVA and UVB rays, but it also avoids the possibility of you getting uneven tans from staying out too long in the sun.
9. Dark Spot Corrector
A dark spot corrector is a perfect product for those that suffer from the harsh side of effects of acne in their teenage years, i.e. acne scars and pigmentation. Luckily there are already products on the market that aim to brighten these scars and even remove them forever. These products usually contain ingredients like Vitamin C, retinoid, kojic acid, and hydroquinone.
10. Laser Removal
This may be by far the most drastic tip on this list. I do advise you first to consider the ones previously mentioned unless your skin discoloration is considered to be a more serious case. Lasers can remove different skin discoloration such as sun spots, acne scars or freckles.
So there you have it. Say goodbye to dull skin, uneven skin tone and skin discoloration with these helpful tips. Here’s hoping that these beauty hacks will fully transform your skin into looking more glowing and radiant than ever before.
