Most of us deal with skin issues that result in an uneven skin tone or texture and skin dullness. Issues like discoloration from sun exposure, dark spots or scars left from acne, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation from burns or pimple marks are usually really stubborn to get rid of and conceal.
All of these do not typically heal or fade away on their own. These skin concerns require us to seek medical intervention or stick with constant skincare. Daily procedures and the use of products targeting these concerns are your best bet.
I have rounded up a list of the best products for an uneven skin tone, including glycolic peels, vitamin C-rich serums, sunscreens, retinol creams, and others to exfoliate your skin and achieve that healthy skin glow.
