4 Ways to Even Out Your Skin Tone

 

by

For many of us, the skin on our face resembles our mobile carrier’s coverage area: patchy. Areas of light and dark, hollows around the eyes, and an overall dull complexion can make your skin look uneven and in need of some serious help.  

Your skin can end up looking uneven for numerous reasons, including genetics, but if you’ve inherited your grandad’s patchwork skin instead of a quilt, you can work to reverse splotchy skin and even out your skin tone. 

Even guys who have serious areas of hyperpigmentation or UV damage can use products that help to lighten dark areas and bring about a brighter and healthier complexion. 

Disco is the cleaner, greener skin care option that is formulated to work with a man’s skin’s perfect pH balance. Our skin care is specifically designed to target men’s skin care issues -- like uneven skin tone. 

We’ll talk about what’s making your skin tone look uneven and what you can do to help correct and prevent it.

What’s Making My Skin So Splotchy

Unless you’ve been channeling your inner Bear Grylls and accidentally used poison oak to heal a cut on your face, your skin should have a relatively even tone. 

What does that mean? It means the pigmentation in your skin (the coloration) should be the same color from ear to ear and from forehead to chin with very little variation. 

If you have dark or light spots, there can be reasons that are treatable. Here are a few reasons why your skin might look like a mile of rough road.

Acne Scars

One of the most common reasons for skin discoloration is the remnants of acne. If your skin was riddled with blemishes during adolescence, you may have scarring as a result. Acne scars form when an acne bump forms and breaks the hair follicle wall. 

As the skin begins to heal the break in the follicle wall, it produces collagen. If the skin makes too much collagen (or too little) a scar will form. 

If you pick or pop a blemish, you can also cause a scar to form, although the scar will likely look red or brownish and be flat. Some acne scars can form a rough patch on the skin that looks similar to orange peel.

Sun Damage

Anytime you are exposed to ultraviolet rays, your skin goes into defense mode. Your skin produces melanin, which is also what gives your skin its color, to protect it from harmful UV rays. 

More melanin = more color, which is why your skin tans or burns. Over time, your body’s response to sun exposure can cause melanin to overproduce in certain areas, forming sunspots. Sunspots (also called age spots) are usually flat, brown circular spots that form on parts of your skin that are exposed to the sun. 

You can also develop another type of sunspot that results in a loss of melanin in the skin. These sunspots are small, white, and oval in shape. These are spots on the skin (usually first seen on the legs) where skin no longer has pigment). 

It’s not uncommon to see sunspots on younger guys, especially if they work outdoors or have outdoor hobbies. 

Age

The older you get, the more your skin changes, and one of the most notable changes in your skin can be your skin tone. Your skin’s collagen production begins to slow down, skin is thinner, and loses hydration, causing skin’s overall tone and texture to change. 

If you had darker skin as a child, it’s not uncommon for your skin to become lighter as you age, and even more susceptible to sun damage.  

Irritation

Skin that is irritated is often red, splotchy, itchy, and dry. It can be completely uncomfortable and even painful, not to mention it makes your skin look uneven. Unless you’re suffering from a rash that needs doctor’s treatment, you could simply be using the wrong skin care products (or none at all, which can be even worse). 

4 Ways to Even Out Skin Tone

If your skin’s as unbalanced as your bank account after a trip to Vegas we can help. You need products that work fast and effectively, without making your skin irritated or causing blemishes. We’ve got you covered; Disco’s lineup of skin-balancing products are formulated with all-natural ingredients that are gentle on skin yet powerful enough to deliver results fast. 

Here are 4 ways we can help even out your skin tone.

1. Kick-Start Cellular Rejuvenation

In order to have a more even skin tone, you basically need new skin. Your skin cells are constantly working to rejuvenate, repair, and restore your skin, but as you get older that process slows down.

Even if you’re still a young buck you can send your skin’s cellular turnover into hyperdrive by using a product that contains phytic acid. 

Phytic acid is a naturally occurring alpha-hydroxy acid that is found in almonds. This acid helps your skin renew faster by accelerating the natural skin rejuvenation cycle. Phytic acid also helps clear out pores, so if you’re prone to blemishes, it’s definitely an ace in the hole. 

Disco’s Face Cleanser Stick contains phytic acid as well as charcoal to remove dirt and grime, and coconut oil to keep your skin hydrated. It’s the first step in getting your skin to perform a perfect balancing act.

2. Slough Off Old, Damaged Skin

You don’t have to spend a fortune on expensive in-office procedures (or subject yourself to those kinds of invasive measures) to get rid of your sunspots. You just need a few products with skin-correcting clout to help get the job done. 

One of the best ways to keep your skin rejuvenated and support a more balanced skin tone is by exfoliating. You can exfoliate your skin easily by using a facial scrub a few times a week to help remove dead skin cells and encourage new cell growth. 

Disco’s Exfoliating Face Scrub has everything you need (and nothing you don’t) to help remove dead skin, dirt, and oil, and help balance your skin tone. It’s also a great product for guys who have irritated skin. Here’s why:

  • Apricot oil. Our exfoliating face scrub contains a healthy dose of all-natural apricot oil, which is ultra-moisturizing and helps soothe irritated skin and reduce inflammation. 
  • Papaya. Nature’s natural exfoliant, papaya works to gently lift away dead skin without damaging the fresh new skin underneath. 
  • Aloe. Nourishing and soothing, aloe helps to repair damaged skin, which can result in a clearer, more even skin tone. 

3. Hydrate Like Hell

If there’s one thing your skin isn’t getting enough of, it’s likely moisture. Even oily skin can be the result of skin that is working overtime to make up for an overall lack of hydration. Dehydrated skin can’t work to correct unevenness, so it’s essential you give your skin moisturizing ingredients. 

Disco’s Hydrating Face Moisturizer keeps your skin fully hydrated and works to correct skin tone imperfections by dosing it with a huge helping of vitamin C. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps brighten the skin and balance skin tone. 

We pair our vitamin C moisturizer with macadamia nut oil to help fight the signs of aging and vitamin E to help defend your skin against free radical damage which could further change your skin tone and make it look uneven. 

Our moisturizer is the skin-balancing triple threat you need to combat uneven skin tone and keep your skin hydrated and conditioned. 

4. Treat Yo’Self

If you really want to hit your uneven skin tone hard, invest in a mask to use once or twice a week. A mask is a great way to keep your pores clean, remove toxins, and rejuvenate your skin. No matter how balanced your skin tone is -- if you’ve got a dull complexion or clogged pores it’s just not sexy.

Disco’s Purifying Face Mask combines the ability to clean pores with willow bark extract. Willow bark extract has astringent-like properties and anti-inflammatory properties to help soothe irritated skin. 

An added bonus? Willow bark extract contains phenolic acid, which also helps speed up skin rejuvenation. Your skin looks cleaner and more even-toned. You can thank us later.

The Bottom Line

Uneven skin tone happens, but you can definitely work to correct it by using skin care that helps correct it. Not only does using excellent skin care help balance your skin tone, but it can also help protect it against future damage. 

Disco can help you reveal healthy, youthful, even skin in a matter of minutes each day. It’s 2021. It’s time to restore the “zen” to your skin tone.
