Having uneven skin texture can be a very common issue with some people. Normally caused by a buildup of dead skin cells, textured skin can look less radiant and more aged than other parts of your face. This textured skin feels rough and uneven, while also potentially being itchy and uncomfortable.
In addition to a buildup of skin cells, sun damage can also play a role in causing textured skin as well as irregular pores. As you spend time in the sun without sunscreen, the UV rays can reduce your skin’s ability to self-repair, as well as speed up the aging process. Remember to use an appropriate SPF before going outdoors, especially if you suffer from or want to prevent the appearance of textured skin.
Once you start noticing the effects of textured skin, there are various ways you can combat the issue. This article will go over some of the best at-home treatments and skincare routines you can use to help reduce the signs of skin roughness and uneven tone.
Exfoliation is one of the most popular ways to remove dead skin cells. Using an exfoliating cleanser such as our ILUMA intense brightening exfoliating cleanser is a great start. Not only does it offer a blend of natural hydrating botanicals and antioxidants, but it can help take care of dull skin in addition to textured skin.
When exfoliating your skin, always be sure you start with a gentle exfoliating cleanser before moving into something a bit more aggressive. Exfoliation should only be done once or twice a week, as too much abrasive scrubbing can cause skin texturing to become worse.
Extremely important when enjoying the outdoors, sunscreen should always be worn on exposed skin to prevent harmful UV rays from causing signs of premature aging. Even if the day seems overcast, sunscreen at a proper SPF of 30 or above should be worn.
We love our daily use PREVENTION+ ultimate protection moisturizer when it comes to sun protection. It goes on smooth and blends into your skin easily, while offering an SPF of 50. The included antioxidants and pea proteins are perfect for providing hydration while also reducing the effects of broad spectrum UV rays.
Staying properly hydrated is an extremely important factor for overall health; not just for your skin, but your entire body as well.
Cool, room-temperature water is the best choice for proper hydration. Try to avoid caffeinated or sugary drinks. If you must have some kind of flavoring in your beverage, look for sugar free flavorings that offer a boost of electrolytes.
ENJOY A CHEMICAL PEEL
