While getting a clear complexion and uniform skin tone may be part of your grooming goals for healthier skin, achieving those goals can feel difficult between all the products, regimes and lifestyle advice around.
If this is your first try at putting together a good grooming routine or you’re looking to refine your skin care regime to get the healthy skin tone you seek, don’t stress, because Pond’s has got you covered. We’re sharing 5 top tips to help you unlock healthy-looking, even-toned skin to help reveal those rugged good looks!
Understanding the factors that lead to an uneven skin tone is essential to know the best things to do to help even it out, as well as the things to avoid. So here are the three main causes for you to look out for:
These factors can get in the way of you achieving the skin you want, but fortunately, there are a host of tried and trusted tips and techniques you can try to achieve an even skin tone. So here are our 5 tips to help you achieve healthy-looking, even-toned skin.
1. A quality sunscreen for the win
Unprotected sun exposure is one of the main factors that can lead to an uneven skin tone. So to unlock healthy-looking skin with a visibly uniform tone, you need to ensure applying sunscreen is the final step in your daily skin care regime.
2. Moisturising matters
Hydrated skin is happy, healthy-looking skin. So to achieve an even skin tone, you want to ensure that you are keeping your skin moisturised by drinking lots of water and using a quality moisturiser. So after you cleanse and before you apply sunscreen, try our Pond’s Perfect Colour Complex Anti Marks Serum Face Cream. This effective, moisturising all-in-one serum face cream is clinically proven with continued daily use, to fade dark marks from 2 weeks. So make sure you add this moisturiser to your grooming kit.
3. Exfoliate regularly
Old skin cells that accumulate on the surface of your skin can leave it looking dull and feeling a little rough. Exfoliation helps you unlock smooth, more even toned skin. The key with exfoliating though is to not overdo it as over-exfoliating can irritate and damage your skin. We recommend a gentle exfoliation once a week with Pond's Pure Detox 3-in-1 cleansing scrub. With bio-minerals and activated charcoal to help exfoliate the skin, using this effective cleanser can help you restore and maintain a healthy-looking skin tone.
4. Keep it moving
Exercising regularly is not only a great way to stay in shape but it’s good for your skin too. Exercising can help to improve blood flow and flush out toxins, amongst various other skin benefits. So make sure you’re getting a good workout in a couple of times a week to promote a uniform skin tone and healthy-looking skin. Just remember to cleanse once you’re done breaking a sweat to clear away sweat and dirt.
5. Do facial care the right way
Many men have asked, ‘what products should men use for even skin tone?’. Our response would be to opt for products that are geared towards your even skin tone goals – like those in our Pond’s range - and use products that are right for your skin type. So if, for example, you have dry skin, after cleansing with our Ponds Perfect Colour Complex Anti Marks Face Wash Serum, moisturise with our Pond’s Perfect Colour Complex Anti Marks Serum Face Cream for Dry Skin. Specially formulated to restore dry skin, this hydrating face cream will help to reveal your skin’s natural even tone. If you have oily or combination skin, don’t stress, because our Pond’s range has something just for you.
Getting the healthy skin tone you seek doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact, with the Pond’s range of facial care products and these tips, you have what you need to become that guy with great-looking skin!
