uneven skin tone
Posted 18 November 2002 - 04:48 PM
Is there any mask or cleanser or something that will help even out the skin color???? My face is like multicolored.. and i have kinda fair to light to medium skin.. cant really describe.. but im light skinned.
I have this whitening mask from a beauty spa salon place.. but i dont know if that really does work. You're suppose to use it once or twice a week.. i havent used it yet. Im kinda scared wondering if its gonna make me break out. Cuz i went for a whitening facial.. and days later i broke out.
Any reply will be greatly appreciated.. thanks!

I read your complaint about uneven skin tone and I have a solution! (that works for me anyway) I have cafe au lait colored skin and often when I get acne, regardless if I pick it or not, I get scars. I live in Japan and the dermatologist here gave me big doses of Vitamin C which totally evened out the tone of my face. Recently, I have been using an over the counter brand called Yunker C which may be available in North America. I almost eat it like candy and have, if I may say so, alright skin!!!!! Please give it a try it really worked for me and it is good for you at any rate.

So don't ever go for hydroquinone.I tried azelaic acid which is for melasma as well as acne too but no results and it was stingy too.
Now i am thinking about glycolic peels.Anybody who had these peels pls give some guidelines.

I think the thing with Vitamin C is that any type will do. The quality of Vitamin C that you get is the same across the board. The quantity is what helps even out skin tone and tone down scars. At my maximum dosage I was taking 3000mg a day. I have done a little research and you have to beware of chewable tablets as they can cause some enamel damage at a high dosage. Otherwise, I think (for me) Vitamin C did wonders on dark pigmentation and evened out my skin tone. Danielle
