Red, blotchy patches, brown spots and pigmentation can make you feel self-conscious, but there are some clever tricks you can try to even out your skin tone for a younger-looking complexion. Personally, I suffer from a severe case of Kate Bosworth skin envy –seriously, could the girl get any more luminous?!
Instead of layering on foundation and concealer, follow this game plan for combatting uneven skin tone (and say hello to naturally clearer, youthful-looking skin)!
Between stress, certain foods, skin sensitivities and hormones, there are a number of reasons why your complexion can become red. Keep it calm by arming yourself with products that are specially formulated to soothe, relieve and cool skin. Also, try to pinpoint times when your skin becomes inflamed so you can work out what might be causing the redness. If redness persists, make an appointment with your dermatologist to suss out why your skin’s flaring up.

LIGHTEN BROWN SPOTS
As we age, brown patches and spots form over time as skin is exposed to ultraviolet light from the sun. This accelerates the production of melanin in the skin, causing brown spots to appear. Thankfully, there are products out there that exfoliate those pesky layers of skin on brown spots, so they gradually fade in colour over time. And don’t forget the all-important step of slathering on an SPF moisturiser every day to prevent spots from darkening and new spots popping up.

Uneven skin tone can make you appear beyond your years, and make your skin look dull and lacking that luminous glow we all know and love. Brighten up your complexion by using serums and treatments that work to remove dead skin cells and boost moisture, improving the overall health of your skin. They’ll also help to get rid of build-up in your pores, allowing you to put a smoother-looking face forward. Kate Bosworth, eat your heart out!
