What are the reasons for uneven (or dark) skin tone ?
Fairness Cream: Our basic skin tone is decided by our genes. However, over time a number of factors cause it to darken or become patchy. The biggest factor happens to be sun exposure. Our body produces melanin (darkening pigment) as a defense against UV rays. This is commonly referred to as sun tan. However, the distribution of melanin, throughout our body is not uniform. Thus, non-uniform secretion causes some spots to be darker than the others; resulting in unevenness. Another factor is sebum (natural oil) production in our body. Too much of it causes acne (that may also leave scars) and blackheads; while too less means dry, cracked skin, and accumulation of dead cells; all of which result in uneven texture. Moreover, as we age, new cells generate at a slower rate; making it difficult to undo the damage so induced; and only adds wrinkling to the list. Multi_Vitamins
How do Vitamins (A, B, C, E) work in improving skin texture ?
Topical application of Vitamins A, B, C and E makes the skin supple, smooth and even. The suppleness of the skin is owed to Vitamin B, which enhances the ability of the skin to retain moisture. The smooth texture and even tone is a synergistic effect of all. All these vitamins effectively treat wrinkling. They help in the repair of damaged tissue by stimulating regeneration of cells. And help maintain the elasticity of the skin, by boosting collagen production. They also protect the skin from damage by free radicals. Another protection they provide is that from UV rays induced damage to the skin; as well as minimization of the damage done already. Multivitamins even help the skin against acne and blackhead problems.

One of Aloevera’s main benefits is its ability to smoothen and strengthen the skin, by removing dead skin cells from its surface; hence allowing better penetration of nutrients. Another major benefit is its use as an anti aging agent; due to its rich anti oxidants composition, particularly Vitamins A and C; which regenerate and revive skin cells. However Aloevera is also used as an anti bacterial.
