It is easy for our skin to turn dark and uneven. We are exposed to the sun half the time. The sun emits UV rays that can damage skin cells and tissues. These damages will prompt the integumentary system to produce more melanin that can make the dermis look dark and dry.
Dry skin is also another issue you have to deal with. Because of the lack of moisture in your dermis cells and tissues, your skin can look dark and uneven. It makes your complexion look mottled.
But there are solutions to these problems. You can try using the following:
1. Squeeze up to one cup of lemon juice. Add half a cup of cold water and two tablespoons of honey. Drink this daily. It will not only help infuse more fluid in your body. This will also help supply vitamin C that can correct abnormal melanin production. In fact, a healthy amount of Vitamin C in the system can make your skin less susceptible to skin darkening problems.
2. Exfoliate using papaya. Exfoliating is the key in reducing dead skin cells and allowing external moisture to penetrate deeper in the skin. It also makes your dermis look and feel softer and smoother.
Papaya is a good exfoliating treatment because of its natural exfoliating enzymes. These enzymes will work well in dissolving the bond that allows dead skin cells to stick to the pores of your skin. Furthermore papaya is a good source of whitening enzymes that can inhibit melanin production. It can correct uneven complexion and can even solve dull skin problems.
3. Rely on the good benefits of a natural whitening moisturizer. You should choose a moisturizer that contains Extrapone Nutgrass, Phytessence Wakame and Manuka Honey.
Extrapone Nutgrass has often been used as a treatment for skin diseases. Experts found out that its root extract actually has the ability to inhibit melanin production by up to 45% during the fist two weeks of use. With continuous use, dark skin and uneven complexion can be solved. Furthermore, it can make your skin soft and dewy because of its moisturizing properties.
Phytessence Wakame is a kind of Japanese sea kelp with the ability to get rid of the harmful enzymes that attack hyaluronic acid. This acid is needed to lubricate collagen fibers.
Manuka honey is another ideal ingredient. Honey also contains bleaching properties so it can work in reducing uneven skin tone and improving the fairness of your complexion. But in addition to that, it also helps nourish the dermis and seal moisture in skin cells and tissues.
