How To Get An Even Skin Tone

How To Get An Even Skin Tone

As we get older, many of us start to notice our skin tone becomes uneven. While toxins in the air and medications can be partly to blame, an uneven skin tone is usually due to excess sun exposure. Too much time in the sun, combined with a lack of a proper skincare routine, results in age spots and dark patches. Once these patches begin to appear, most people want to know the best way to fix an uneven skin tone. Let’s take a look at the most effective factors and ingredients when it comes to achieving a beautiful, consistent, and youthful complexion.

Use an excellent sunscreen

I won’t go too deep into the value of protecting your skin from the sun and the importance of a great sunscreen, but I can’t go further without at least mentioning this major factor when it comes to achieving an even skin tone. 

Other than smoking, nothing is more damaging to your skin than sun exposure. The skin of patients who protect their skin from the sun looks years younger, retaining its even, smooth skin tone. 

Protect yourself with an excellent sunscreen that resists both UVA and UVB rays. Your sunscreen should also be broad-spectrum. These are two very significant factors when it comes to preventing the signs of age and achieving a beautiful, youthful skin tone. To find the best sunscreen, ensure your product is non-greasy, sweat and waterproof non-comedogenic, zinc and titanium dioxide-based.

Follow a consistent skincare regimen

An excellent and consistent skincare routine is a huge factor in correcting an uneven skin tone, or for younger people, ensuring your youthful skin tone remains. People commonly think the way to maintain a beautiful complexion and skin tone has to include a complicated, elaborative (and expensive!) beauty routine. 

In fact, a complicated beauty routine can actually be counterproductive because it’s hard to keep up with it. Even if you have the most incredible skincare routine that exists, if you aren’t able to do it consistently, every day, it’s not going to be effective.

You’ll need a simple skincare routine that you can do easily each day, even if you’re busy. Equally as important are the ingredients in your skincare products. 

Be sure your products have all the ingredients needed to achieve a beautiful skin tone

Find the skincare products that include the most effective ingredients for brightening and lightening your skin. These include the following:

Vitamin C

Look for products with Vitamin C. Vitamin C is a major skin brightener. It also decreases pigmentation and stimulates collagen. It acts as an antioxidant and achieves a youthful, fresh glow. 


Retinol provides a peel effect that helps to lighten the skin and achieve more beautiful, even skin. Retinol increases cell turnover to decrease pigmentation concerns and boosts the production of collagen, which helps even out your skin, keeping it luminous and radiant. 


Niacinamide is a key factor in restoring uneven skin tone and brightening your complexion. Niacinamide helps to protect skin surface immunity by protecting the skin from stressors in the environment. Niacinamide improves skin firmness and minimizes wrinkles and fine lines.

Get a Beautiful, Even Skin Tone with Trifecta

I spent decades working with his patients who wanted to achieve a smooth, fresh and even skin tone as a part of their facial rejuvenation. While my work as a surgeon can help to accomplish firm, defined contours, and a youthful, elevated lift--patients’ skin tones can’t be addressed with surgery.

I advised patients to use skincare products with key ingredients to ensure their skin was as youthful-looking as their new facial contours. However, I discovered the right skincare line didn’t exist and most of my patients struggled to keeop with with the complex routines with so many products.

After much searching, I found there simply wasn’t a simple, easy-to-use skincare line that included all the vital ingredients necessary for youthful, fresh, luminous skin. So I dedicated the next five years to formulating the Trifecta, a simple, three-step skincare program that is clinically proven to truly work.

The products work together to achieve hydrated, fresh, beautiful skin. From there, I went on to develop Polish, the perfect complement to Trifecta. 

Polish is an advanced, dual exfoliator that renews and revitalizes the skin tone by polishing away dry, dull skin cells. Polish leaves the skin hydrated, smooth, and beautiful.

With Trifecta and Polish, patients can achieve the luminous, beautiful, radiant skin they have always wanted.
