My skin tone is not unified at all and I'm asking if anyone tried some face masks or something at home that actually worked to improve their skin tone and to unify it. I don't have acne but my T zone is q different color from the rest of my face.

This might sound weird but: Oil.
As a fellow girl, I want the best for you so this will be a long response.
But Yes! I was shocked by it too when I first heard of it. Oil to combat oil? I used to have acne all over my face, and my skin is really sensitive and so a lot of products would irritate my skin and I would develop blotches of discoloration all over my face. I have the kind of skin that is either super dry or super oily, or for the most part, super dry that my skin is flaking off but it's super oily to the touch and my forehead turns into a mirror. Let me tell you, I don't have the smooth skin I have now from birth; it was from sheer determination and hard work. I mean it.
Fask masks are useless and a waste of money if you haven't cleaned your face to some point. I used to buy so much thinking they'd work but I'm embarrassed to think I fell for the advertising now... I find that Japanese oil cleansers are the best and I still live by it to this day. I use a Kose - Sekkisei brand but it's kind of pricey, I'm sure there are others out there that are priced more reasonably and still works the same. I like the Sekkisei line because it's not just the oil, and actually washes your face when you rinse it off. They're basically an oil or oil solution you gently massage on your face (if you wear make-up, this is a MUST and a first step to cleaning your face of it) to remove any particles on your face. Once you massage it, if you have a piece of silk cloth (any facial cloth works but silk clothes are most gently and work the best to gently exfoliate your face without damaging it), massage in circular motions starting from your T-zone and work your way down. Rinse it off and if you have a gently facial foam, use that after the oil cleansing to help with your pores. I use Sunday Riley Ceramic Clay Slip Cleanser because it leaves my face feeling super smooth and it's gently but cleans very well. Make sure to lather it in your hands first before applying it on your face. If the price does not work with you, I suggest powder facial washers where you put an small amount in your hands and drop a few droplet of water and lather it up, or any facial wash that puffs up into a big foam when lathered into your hands.
Do this any any other facial product you choose to use after this will work efficiently. Since there's a limit to how much I can write here, I'll have to stop here.
I'm wishing the best for you! Best of luck!0
