Uneven or Sun-damaged Skin

We all have uneven areas of skin on our bodies; it’s only natural. You can see it when looking at your elbows or knees or even in your armpits. There are times though when uneven skin, especially if it is sun-damaged, can become an issue. 

If you’ve been having challenges with tone or balance, and want something to help improve uneven areas, Skinsider may be able to help.

We have a great selection of uneven skin products which help protect, improve, and leave skin feeling fabulous. Take a look at what Skinsider has for you!

The biggest issue with uneven skin is that it will always be related to dullness and lack of vibrancy. Under the eyes would be the most well-known area to show uneven tone easily. While make-up can do a good job of helping hide problem areas, it is better in the long-run to stop having problem areas. 

Skinsider knows which products can help improve tone or reduce sun damage, without impacting the rest of your skincare routine. We think it helps to know why K-Beauty excels in this area and which brands should become staples in your life.

How does K-beauty address uneven or sun-damaged skin?

You want fabulous skin, and no matter what moisturisers, serums, or masks you use, you do not see improvement. How can that even be? As with everything in K-Beauty, certain products have their time and place. For uneven and sun-damaged skin, people will often forego or incorrectly perform two very important steps of the K-Beauty routine, cleansing and exfoliating.

When you don’t cleanse regularly, you’re not giving the pores a fighting chance to improve. If you’re someone who would rush through cleansing in the shower every morning and throw on more eye cream or moisturiser to compensate, you will not get results. Cleansing regularly, even with a mild cleanser, gets skin in prime condition to work with.

The same can be said for exfoliating. You might think the best solution is to “attack” your problem areas by exfoliating like crazy, but it will only make it harder for your skin to protect itself. That doesn’t mean you should skip exfoliating completely. If you don’t, your skin allows dead skin skills and dirt to stay there, preventing anything you apply from working its magic.

If in doubt, a light cleanse and a gentle scrub is the way to go.

What brands can help with uneven skin?

Dealing with uneven skin, you should always think that you want to boost the skin, rather than cover or blend colours. For that reason, some of the incredible brands to check out include:

By Wishtrend is a big favourite amongst the Skinsider family (don’t forget to sign up!) and is known for offering exfoliating products which are kinder on the skin.

What brands can help with sun-damaged skin?

Sun damage can be more than just forgetting to pop on some SPF on your holidays before having to lather on after sun every night. Sun damage can see you get dry patches, flaking and wrinkling.

To combat it, some brands to use include:

With sun damage leaving skin quite irritable, something like Beauty of Joseon Calming Serum, with green tea & catechin, can provide relief for sun damage on what would usually be oily or combination skin.

Vegan-friendly products for uneven and sun-damaged skin

Skinsider prides itself on being able to give our vegan customers an unbridled level of choice. It can be difficult to find vegan products that deal with uneven skin, but some serums and exfoliators from COSRX and Klairs are a must-have.

You can see which products are Vegan by using the filters on the left-side of the page.

What’s the best-kept secret for dull skin?

For those with dark patches creating an uneven look, Skinsider has a secret to share. You’ll want to take a look at URANG Brightening Blue Oil Serum. URANG’s amazing serum only has four ingredients and helps illuminate dull skin, giving it a revitalised appearance.

My problem area is around my eyes. What should I use?

We have a dedicated eye cream section you can visit here, but if your specific problem is dull areas around the eyes, Heimish Marine Care Eye Cream is perfect for all skin types.
