Prepping Your Skin for Summer - For Normal Skin & Uneven Skin Tones

Prepping Your Skin for Summer - For Normal Skin & Uneven Skin Tones

It’s easy to be envious of those with “normal” skin. While, strictly speaking, there is no such thing as “abnormal” skin, those with a normal skin type have skin that is neither overly oily nor particularly dry, instead boasting skin with balanced oil production levels and healthy skin function.
That’s not to say that those with a normal skin type don’t suffer from their own skin concerns. For those with a normal skin function, the goal is often to improve an uneven skin tone and brighten the complexion overall. To do this, it’s important to choose products that maintain the healthy function of the skin and ensure its oil levels remain balanced, then work with more focused products aimed at brightening and evening the complexion into your routine.


Is your skin summer ready? Here’s our guide to achieving a healthy summer glow for normal skin types and uneven skin tone.  

Normalise. Before we can really work on brightening the skin or evening out pigmentation of any kind, we need to focus on the overall health of the skin. Engage in a skincare routine that aims to promote and maintain a healthy skin, rather than quick-fixes. Begin by building up the essential building blocks of healthy skin - then you can work focused treatments into your regime.

Vitamin A is essential for healthy, radiant, youthful skin, so work this vital ingredient into your daily routine. To allow your skin to adapt to higher concentrations of vitamin A, Environ developed their STEP-UP System to allow you to gradually work more and more vitamin A enriched products into your routine. Gradually “stepping up” to higher levels of vitamin A allows the skin to get comfortable with it, rather than overwhelming it with too much, too soon.

Target. Now that you have built up to a routine with a focus on healthy skin function, you can work on introducing specific products that will help target your more specific skin concerns.

If a bright, even skin tone is your wish, opt for products from Environ’s Focus Care Radiance+ range. This focused collection works to target and diminish pigmentation and discolouration through a three step treatment program. The three Radiance+ products help target the production of melanin in a 6 phase attack. The range has been formulated to work in conjunction with the aforementioned Environ STEP-UP System to achieve the best results, helping to give skin back a healthy glow.

Finish. Why should your skin stop receiving skincare benefits when your skincare routine stops? Choose jane iredale mineral makeup with skin loving ingredients to deliver those benefits to your skin all day and night.

For a bright, radiant base, choose a product like Glow Time Pro BB Cream to deliver a wash of colour to the skin to even out the skin tone. This foundation is full coverage, making it perfect for covering dark spots and pigmentation. Despite offering full coverage, the product still appears natural and dewy for a “second skin” finish.

Set your makeup using jane iredale’s cult POMMISST Hydration Spray, and keep it on hand to deliver moisture to the skin as you need it throughout the day.
