What Causes Uneven Skin Tone on My Face?

Uneven skin tone is an issue that can affect most. But what exactly constitutes unevenness, and how does it happen?

The term ‘uneven skin tone’, is an umbrella title that can include skin issues like redness and skin texture inconsistencies. One of the most common, though, is hyperpigmentation – or the over-production of melanin – that often happens after sun exposure.

If you’re experiencing symptoms, here are some tips on how to get an even skin tone on your face.

How can I get even skin tone on my face

When it comes to lessening uneven tone – and especially hyperpigmentation – The Pond’s Institute has developed a range of skincare technologies that can help.

Let’s detail a few here, and some tips to an effective skincare routine for even skin tone

Tips on Facial Even Skin Tone


Working regular exfoliation into your routine is a great way to maintain a healthy tone. Exfoliation effectively removes the debris that can gather on the top layer – like old skin cells, sweat from the day, and impurities. Use Pond’s Flawless Radiance Even Tone Face Wash – formulated with gentle micro granules that work to exfoliate skin and remove old skin cells for a skin smoothening effect.


Water is nature’s moisturiser, and skin that lacks it can appear dull. Dry skin can also seem more uneven. So, make sure that water bottle is always on-hand, and drink water throughout the day, to maintain optimum levels of hydration for your skin.

Hit the Gym

Regular workouts can put you in the mindset to live a healthy lifestyle, and when your body sweats, it can effectively detox. That means the healthy glow that comes from a good training session, is your skin benefiting from it. Not only that, though, but with exercise comes endorphins – you’ll feel great and healthy, and it will show in your skin’s tone.

Couple workouts with a healthy diet – lots of leafy greens and antioxidants – and that uneven tone will lessen over time.

Just remember, if you're tackling that workout near a window, make sure you're wearing a day cream that has a good sun protection factor (SPF). It’ll help protect against the sun’s harsh rays while you're working up a sweat. Try the Pond’s Flawless Radiance Moisturising Day Cream SPF 30.

Moisturise and Protect

Don't forget to moisturise every day. Moisturising can add vital hydration back into the skin and lessen uneven tone – it’s only beneficial. So, try the Pond’s Perfect Colour Complex Beauty Cream for skin that looks healthier and more glowing. Or, better yet, couple your moisturisation with sun protection. Remember, every time you set foot outside, you're exposing your skin to the sun’s influential UV rays – the main culprit when it comes to the overproduction of melanin in the skin, and so hyperpigmentation.

Choose Pond’s Flawless Radiance Moisturising Day Cream SPF 30 – a moisturiser with a sun protection factor. On the road to more even tone on your face, the journey must be mapped with steps for extra care. Use these tips and Pond’s products with your skin’s health in mind, and uneven tone could be a thing of the past. Browse the Pond’s range of skincare technologies – there’s a solution for every type and tone.
