Uneven skin tone can develop from a variety of different reasons, and it usually appears as dark spots on the skin. In our youth, our skin is able to recover quickly from sun damage without leaving any visible signs.  But as we age, so does our skin. After bouncing back so many times from daily, and sometimes, extreme sun exposure, our skin’s ability to recover gradually slows down. This leaves us with the result of more and more dark spots on our skin that are associated with the aged skin look.

With so many products on the market claiming to reduce or remove dark spots from the skin, how do you tell which one is for you?  A solid protective and preventative skincare routine using products that are designed to work with each other is what will produce effective and long lasting results. Besides your basic daily routine to keep your skin clean and sufficiently exfoliated, here are some extra functionality you need to include into your routine to target hyperpigmentation: 

  • a combination of potent antioxidant protection that provides support against environmental aggressors that contribute to the formation of excess pigment clusters.  
  • a powerful but gentle botanical extract cocktail that provides controlled exfoliation and pigment reduction. The result is brighter skin with a reduction in the appearance of uneven skin tone and an overall improvement in the appearance of aging in the skin.

Here is a simple daily routine that is easy to follow:

5. Let’s not forget about sun protection!Tizo Physical Sunscreen

The harmful UV rays are the reason we are all here in the first place, isn’t it?  With the knowledge of the toxicity and irritation level of chemical sunscreens, many governments are doing their part to protect their marine lives by banning these culprits.  It is also important to note that chemical sunscreens have a short lived protection on our skin as it loses effectiveness by the minute under any UV exposure.  This means that by the time you finish applying your makeup and eat your breakfast, your sunscreen is near the end of its ability to protect you.

Opting for a pure physical sunscreen not only ensures full time physical protection against UVA and UVB rays, you are also doing your part in preserving the marine lives depend on when you go for a dip in the ocean.  Typically a physical sunscreen only needs reapplication when it has been sweated or washed off, making it an ideal ___ for
