hi. Seems you have a sensitive skin. Please refrain from any facials in future. home remedies might irritate your skin further (it may be already irritating your skin if you are using them already)

Stop using soaps instead Use a mild cleanser like cetaphil. Soaps are alkaline and alter the skin PH.
Use a a broadspectrum sunscreen effective against both UVA AND UVB.
For uneven skin tone and patches use a product containing arbutin, glabridin, tetrahydrocurcumin at night or use a kojic acid cream once daily at night.
