Uneven skin tone is a popular skin care concern that a lot of girls regularly face. Luckily it is not as eye-catching as your pimples and blackheads, but that doesn't mean that it is not a confidence downer anymore because let's be real, it still is. Before you stress about your uneven skin tone dilemma, we consulted a dermatologist to find out whether this common skin problem is truly a lost cause. And you can let out a huge sigh of relief, Candy Girls, because it's not! Read on to find out how you can fix an uneven skin tone with a help of a derma.

Q: How do I fix an uneven skin tone?

Dr. Rhoda: To know the solution, it is important to first learn the cause of unevenness of the skin tone. This common skin care problem usually results from constant sun exposure, acne scars, and any form of injury. Once you're able to pinpoint the actual cause, you can minimize further exposure from these elements. Take note that it's important to make sure that you use the proper skin care for your skin type, too. Avoid products that have high acidity, which can burn the skin and cause further pigmentation. It's also best to have a regular checkup with your go-to dermatologist to fix the unevenness of the skin tone for the long haul. Be careful about using any beauty product that promises to fix this skin dilemma! When in doubt, consult your dermatologist first.

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
