Porcelain. Glass. Dew. Glazed Donut. Cocoa Butter. Baby Bottom. You may be familiar with these descriptors when referring to ideal skin texture. But what do you do when your skin texture is less glass and more pebble beach or dusty bumpy road? You may wonder if you are uniquely clueless or cursed when it comes to your skin texture.
Truth is, your skin’s texture can go rogue at any time and may change with season and age. In your teens, it may be acne or hormonal changes. In adulthood, it may be age or more hormonal changes. If you have moved or traveled, it may be environmental factors or unknown allergies. Whatever the cause, there are ways to improve the texture of your skin.
Removing the top layers of your skin makes way for new and healthy skin cells to emerge. Chemical exfoliants are often preferable to scrub exfoliants which can cause micro tears in the skin or irritate skin, making your skin texture worse. Don’t overdo it— that is don’t exfoliate more than once a week. If you want deeper or more serious exfoliation to treat more serious texture issues such as scarring, your dermatologist can advise on chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or laser resurfacing options.
Keeping wrinkles away, avoid sun damage, and redness by using an SPF 30 or higher on your face regularly. Avoid the discoloration of scars or skin tone when you protect your face with sunscreen. Being out in the sun and the vitamin D that goes with it is absolutely beneficial for your health but maintain a balance.
A powerful vitamin in fighting off all types of ailments, Vitamin C is crucial for your skin health. Not only does Vitamin C solve current skin texture issues, it helps prevent them in the future. Vitamin C is a mighty antioxidant that repairs and defends your skin from aging, environmental damage, and pigmentation.
Keep your skin supple and soft from the outside in by incorporating the correct hydration for your skin type. The correct type of hydrating oil or lotion keeps your skin texture even and balanced by preventing moisture loss and replenishing moisture in your skin. Hydrating by drinking sufficient water is crucial in keeping skin texture, as your skin cells (and all cells) need it to function optimally.
