Uneven skin tone happens to a lot of people. Whether the skin is dry, oily, or a combination, everyone will experience different kinds of uneven skin tone at some point in their lives, whether it's from acne or just from general wear and tear from the sun. Most people just live with it — or all did for years is to fight it.

Uneven skin tone is a skin condition in which the color of your skin varies from one part of your body to the next. Potential causes include genetics, underlying health conditions, sun exposure, and aging. Uneven skin tones come in a variety of forms, each with its own set of treatment options.


Prevention of uneven skin tone

Because it's impossible to completely prevent uneven skin tone, it's important that you do everything you can to reduce the risk of developing these dark spots. Here are some tips for doing so:

  • Use sunscreen every day. Sun exposure causes the skin to darken, which results in uneven skin tone and makes those spots harder to cover up with makeup. Fortunately, using a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day can help prevent this from happening.

Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB protection with 100% mineral sunscreens – Face Unique lightness and effectiveness! A sun preparation created for all skin types, including combination skin, oily skin, and sensitive skin, to be integrated into your daily skincare ritual.
*How to use: Shake well before use. In the morning or before sun exposure, on thoroughly cleansed skin, apply alone or over your usual day cream. Massage in gently.

The 100% mineral sunscreen filters provide broad spectrum UV protection and skin-enhancing benefits to soothe and calm sensitive skin. Ultra-lightweight, formula absorbs quickly into the skin with no white residue.
*How to use: Apply generously and evenly to face and neck 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply every 2 hours or after 40 minutes of swimming or perspiring and immediately after towel drying.

An all-mineral formula using zinc oxide provides broad-spectrum protection against sunlight. Since the sunscreen is all mineral, it's gentle enough for sensitive and post-procedure skin. Using zinc oxide also makes the sunscreen reef safe. The formula also includes a number of antioxidants, including niacinamide, vitamin E, and an exclusive ellagic acid complex. These help to prevent dark spots and visible premature skin aging. Niacinamide also brightens the complexion and helps to even skin tone.
*How to use: Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply - after 40 minutes of swimming or sweating, immediately after towel drying, at least every 2 hours.

Offering excellent UVB and UVA protection, TIZO SOLAR PROTECTION SPF 50+ prevents burning and photoaging through its broad-spectrum complex. This purely mineral sunscreen is gentle and lightly tinted to blend into all skin tones effectively.
*How to use: Apply after moisturizer. Reapply as needed.


  • Avoid sun exposure as much as possible—especially between 10 AM and 4 PM, when UV rays are strongest.
  • Use a moisturizer regularly on areas prone to developing hyperpigmentation (like your face). This will keep those areas hydrated and therefore less susceptible to becoming darker in color than other parts of your body due to sun damage or stress on the skin caused by acne medication or other types of treatment like laser hair removal that cause redness. It may also help improve their appearance by reducing flaking and irritation caused by dryness or excessive use of topical acne medications such as retinol or benzoyl peroxide products.

Treatments for uneven skin tone

Pigmentation is a common cause of uneven skin tone and can be treated in the following ways:

  • Laser therapy has been used to treat some types of pigmentation. It works by using light to target and destroy the cells that produce melanin, which gives skin its color. This procedure can be painful and may require a few sessions before results are seen. However, it can be effective in getting rid of scars and other marks on your face such as birthmarks.
  • Chemical peels use chemicals applied directly onto the skin to remove cells from the surface layer (epidermis). This process helps exfoliate dead skin cells so newer ones can grow back more quickly than usual. Chemical peels are generally safe when performed under medical supervision; however, they should not be used if you have certain medical conditions or allergies that may make this treatment dangerous for you personally.
  • Include a retinol product in your evening routine and a topical antioxidant Vitamin C serum in your morning routine.

An anti-aging, vitamin C serum that tones firm sagging skin and reduces the visible signs of aging.
