Do you struggle with uneven skin tone on your bod? As black women have more pigmentation in their skin to begin with, they’re more likely to be affected by hyper-pigmentation or blotchy, uneven skin tone. A lot of the time, this occurs in places that get a lot of friction (think inner thighs and armpits) or parts of your skin that get ‘traumatised’ in some way, be it due to excess sun exposure, shaving, acne or plucking.
Because of this, Vaseline have created Healthy Even Tone body cream and lotion. Lighten up, girls! A 200ml body lotion is only R23,99, while a 350ml tub o’ cream is R31,99.
Sunscreens help fend off the UV rays that darkens skin unevenly. Then, to help prevent future skin discolouration, Vaseline has included vitamin B3 which helps prevent melanin (the substance that gives your skin it’s colour) from migrating from the lower levels of your skin to the visible top bit.
Both the lotion and cream are in stores now, so go take a look. And if you find they’re working out for you, please do let us know. Vaseline says that if you use either of them religiously every day, you should start seeing results after just two weeks…
Want your tan to fade even faster? Invest in a good body scrub or make your own using a bit of coarse salt and mega-moisturising antioxidant-rich olive oil.
