Skin Lightening Creates an Even Skin Tone

An uneven skin tone mars the appearance of the face and makes it look older, but the condition can be corrected with professional skin lightening products.

A baby is born with perfect, even skin. As that baby grows into adulthood, and especially into middle age, even skin tone turns into uneven skin tone. There are many factors that contribute to old looking skin, such as wrinkles, crevices and age spots, but one of them is certainly uneven skin tone.

In addition to aging, what are the reasons for the condition? Those with sufficient melanin in their skin may experience uneven melanin production. Therefore, some areas of the skin will appear lighter than other areas. This condition is complicated by the skin’s worse enemy – the sun. If you are darker skinned, you may wonder why discoloration of your skin takes so long to fade back to normal. That has to do with PIH or post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. The darker you are the darker the PIH. Fading can often take months and even a year.

Hormones, pregnancy, birth control pills and more can also contribute to uneven skin tone. For example, melasma or “the mask of pregnancy” is a condition that results in brown patches on the face.

Treating uneven skin tone does not mean resorting to products that can harm your skin and your face. Nor do most professionals suggest that the goal of skin lightening is to make your dark skin lighter for lightness sake. This type of message has the potential of harming darker women emotionally and psychologically. Therefore, the goal of professional skin lightening is to even out your skin tone and that should be done with professional products.

Effective skin bleaching products typically contain hydroquinone. Skin bleaching products should be applied to dark spots only and stopped once the look is achieved. Products that do not contain hydroquinone or contain very little are called other terms such as a skin lighteners.

Doctor Simon Ourian, Medical Director of Epione Beverly Hills, offers a professional-strength product known as EPIONE Signature Series Restoration Firm and Fade which is a skin brightener and lightener. It contains an active blend of 2% hydroquinone, kojic acid, azelaic acid and high potency vitamin C. It improves uneven skin tone and skin clarity, re-textures the skin and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles and lightens or eliminates age spots, freckles and scars. The advantage of such a product is that is has been professionally blended and approved by a trained and experienced physician.

Taking care of your skin with skin lighteners or other products to create an even skin tone can be safely accomplished with the help and approval of a professional. The uneven skin tone that you have grown to accept can be made even with proper use of a skin lightening product, avoiding the sun and patience. Following your doctor’s advice can contribute to healthier and younger looking skin.
