As much as we love trying out the latest scrubs, face packs and spa treatments, nothing beats an at-home DIY face care routine. If you're struggling to cope with pigmentation, all you need to do is follow the three commandments we've detailed for you below to see visibly even toned skin in a matter of weeks!
- Thou shalt not forget sunscreen
It is a myth that dusky skin tones do not require as much sun protection as fair ones. Select a sunscreen with SPF of at least 20. Apply it 15-20 minutes before sun exposure. Watch the video below for all you need to know about sunscreens and sun protection including MSM recommended sunscreens!
- Thou shalt use a DIY almond scrub twice a week
Almonds are packed with antioxidants, including Vitamin E and a variety of protective plant chemicals. Making a simple DIY at home almond scrub will work towards ensuring your skin is well exfoliated.
- Thou shalt follow your CTM routine without fail
Cleanse your face with a mild cleanser (Avene's soapless gel cleanser is amazing, just saying!), tone your face and apply your moisturiser on a regular basis. You could also make your own skin lightening and brightening toner by mixing two tablespoons cucumber juice with one tablespoon each of lemon juice and rose water. This lightens your skin tone while toning and moisturising it. Make sure you follow this up with a light moisturiser and sunscreen!
And there you have it - your three steps to even toned, gorgeous skin!
