These days, we are all searching for the perfect, bright, even complexion, but as we know.. this may not come naturally. Whether it simply be a little redness on your cheeks or the tip of your nose or perhaps some pigmentation, or your skin just looks dull, the truth is a perfect complexion is rare. But... the good news is there are definitely things we can be doing at home to brighten the complexion and help it to be radiant and healthy.

So what causes our skin to lose its glow? How can we achieve a beautifully bright complexion? Let's look further into this together. The most common cause of an uneven skin tone is hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation is an irregular darkening of the skin. This can present itself in small or larger areas and can be caused by a number of factors. The most common include sun exposure, hormonal changes, genetics, skin inflammation issues, and air pollution. Dehydration is another huge factor in the way that our skin looks and feels. It is important to make sure that we are using products that will keep the cells nice and hydrated, which will result in a happy, healthy glowing skin. There are so many ingredients in today's world. The list is never ending, however, when it comes to an uneven skin tone, there are a few standouts that definitely make a difference to the quality and appearance of your skin.

Keep reading to learn a little bit more about some of my top pick ingredients and products that will help you achieve the even, hydrated skin, and give you that glow you've been looking for.



Niacinamide is a key ingredient for brightening dark spots and even skin tone. If your skin is susceptible to hyperpigmentation, niacinamide will step in to assist in the reduction of uneven pigmentation by slowing down the transfer of melanin to your skin's epidermis. Niacinamide is also super hydrating and can help to bring back that glow to the skin. 


Vitamin C is an incredible antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrient. It is known to improve skin tone and texture, hydrate the skin, and reduce signs of aging. Vitamin C also interferes with the production of pigment in the skin, fading dark spots, and hyperpigmentation. By simply adding vitamin C to your daily skin care routine can not only brighten your complexion but also protect against skin damage caused by sun exposure and harmful free radicals.


Works on hyperpigmentation in two ways—by fading existing dark spots and curbing the production of melanin, which causes dark spots.


Is derived from mushrooms and is a fabulous ingredient to lighten visible sun damage, age spots, or scars. Kojic acid also had anti-ageing effects on the skin which makes this powerhouse ingredient that little bit more exciting!


Getting yourself into a good routine at home is so important. So, how can you incorporate these ingredients into your daily life at home?

Step 1:

Start with a cleanser. This should be your first step morning AND night. If your skin is not clean, it can not absorb the goodness you are putting on it.  I love DermaQuest EvenSkin Facial Cleanser 177mlThis illuminating cleanser helps to even out skin tone and deliver valuable nutrients to the skin. Shiitake Mushroom Extract, Green Tea Extract, Panthenol, and Vitamins C and E help to comfort, protect, and uniform uneven skin tone. Feel refreshed, energized, and primed for home care or professional treatments, without stripping essential moisture from skin.


  • Promotes even skin tone
  • Protects the skin and fights external free radical damage
  • Locks in moisture to keep skin feeling balanced and hydrate

Step 2:

Apply an antioxidant serum  - your serum should always go on first so that the active ingredients can penetrate into the skin and get to work. If you are wanting to incorporate Vit A into your skincare, this should always be applied at night time and would be applied at this step. You would select another active serum that would be used in the morning. One of the best serums for uneven skin is Skin Matrix IQ Serum


  • It Contains Mega Doses of Vitamin B (Niacinamide Vitamin B3), and Vitamin C which are effective ingredients that target ageing, pigmentation, capillary damage (redness, rosacea), sensitivity, sun damage & scarring.
  • Contains proteins required by the skin to produce collagen and elastin and give the skin a more youthful appearance.
  • An effective anti-ageing serum that does not contain Vitamin A, meaning you can use it morning and night and can use it whilst pregnant and lactating.
  • Contains Hyaluronic Acid which is a great skin hydrator, that smooths the surface of the skin, reduces fine lines, and calms irritated skin.
  • Contains an oil-soluble form of Vitamin C that penetrates and is absorbed into the skin more effectively than other forms of Vitamin C. It is also a highly stable form of Vitamin C, unlike L-Ascorbic acid which oxidises very quickly. This C will not oxidize meaning longer shelf life and more results for you!
  • Contains no acids, it is gentle on the skin, a luscious silky texture

Step 3:

Moisturize your skin. Seal in the antioxidant goodness and nourish your skin with your favourite moisturiser. Some people like to use the same moisturiser morning and night, and others like a specific product for each. Either is fine. It is just important to find the combination of products that works for you and for your concerns. Try Cosmedix Elite Alt-A - 50ml  A Daily Rejuvenation Moisturizer is the secret to unlocking your best skin ever. Formulated with plant-based ingredients like Silk Tree Extract, this age-defying moisturiser helps revive a dull complexion and protects your skin from environmental stressors for good measure.  Hydration is from several different sources; nourishing jojoba, shea butter, argan oil for deep hydration, plankton extract to heal dry patches, apple juice powder for a radiant glow and goji berriesAlt-A also features an innovative botanical retinol called, "Bakuchiol," that's been proven to be more gentle on sensitive or oily/combo skin.  The formula is safe to use on a daily basis from the onset.  


  • Hydrates and rejuvenates the look of dull, dry skin
  • Improves the appearance of uneven skin tone and wrinkles
  • Protects the complexion from environmental stressors 

After applying your moisturiser in the morning, you still have one more VERY important step.. Sunscreen, Sunscreen Sunscreen! ‘.Remember, the cells that make dark spots are activated by sunlight, even a tiny bit of unprotected exposure can reverse all of the hard work you put in, and cause future damage to your skin. 

Most importantly, be patient. We can only ever do the best that we can. With a little love and care, you will be in the best skin you can in no time.
