In this post, I’m going to take you through some quick and easy ways to prepare DIY face packs at home that can help you combat the problem of an uneven skin tone. Uneven skin tone is a fairly common skin concern, only because there are many ways to define and identify an uneven skin tone. If you suffer from dry and dehydrated skin, then you could have an uneven skin texture and dry patches on your face. If you have redness, inflammation, bumps and blemishes, then that too, qualifies as uneven skin tone. There are a variety of facets to this skin concern.
