Get Even Skin Tone with the Right Serum
Skin tone changes throughout the years due to aging, sun spots, acne scars, etc. I thought that once this happened, there was really nothing one could do to reverse the damage. With all the creams and lotions claiming they can even skin tone, I thought that that referred to just cleaning dirt and debris from your skin to allow it to better protect itself against uneven skin tone in the future. But, the latest serums have proven me wrong.
My skin has a healthy, glossy glow to it, and my acne scars have faded. My under eye bags are more masked, and my sun-kissed freckles are fading away. How does one find the perfect serum? The first step to finding a serum you will actually commit to using as a daily regimen is the smell. If you do not like the smell, you will easily forget to apply it every morning and just opt for your facial sunscreen.
With a smell that you like or don’t mind, you can focus on the rest of the ingredients, and if they will give your skin what it needs when it comes to evening your skin tone.
The following serums are good for your skin, depending on what type of evening of skin you are trying to achieve:
By Terry Cellularose Brightening Serum is on the pricey side, but is well worth your money when it comes to fading away acne scars. This serum smells like roses, but is not too strong.
It has a special formula made by the Terry Research Laboratory, which includes natural rose cells and bellis perennis extract to help fade away dark spots and give you an even, glowing complexion. It works best for post acne scars because the formula helps your skin renew itself by shedding the first layer of skin. Your skin sparkles with an even sheen after using this.
Clarins newest Double Serum bottle is also on the expensive side, but with a unique ingredient like turmeric, which works as an anti-inflammatory, your skin will be even toned from all the little pink blemishes you have.
Whether it is from the sun or pimples that are just starting out, this serum tames the puffiness and leaves your face with a bright, matte look. Within about six days, I started to notice the difference with my skin’s redness being tamed, improving my overall skin complexion. The scent is very earthy and plant-like, and dissipates quickly.
Murad Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum retails for less then the previous two serums, but it packs just as much punch when it comes to evening skin tone. This serum works especially well for lightening freckles and sun spots. It does not have much of a distinctive smell, and it absorbs fairly quickly into your skin.
On the 10th day, I noticed that the ruddiness of my face — the redness mixed with the sunburn — was merging with all my sun freckles and had started to peel off and fade away. This serum quickened the process of having my dead skin fall off to reveal new skin, eliminating my sun freckles. This serum uses hydroquinone, a skin lightening ingredient at the strongest level one can buy without a prescription.
