Interestingly, people talk more about uneven skin tone than they hardly know about textured skin or uneven skin texture. In case you aren’t sure of what we are talking about.
Have you ever felt tiny bumps or rough patches on your skin, but you can hardly see them unless you apply makeup? That, my friend, can be referred to as "Textured Skin".
Sometimes, people with textured skin mistake it to be the way their natural skin is. But guess what? We have good news for you!
Today, join us as we deep-dive further into this subject, consider its causes, appearances and how to get rid of them from your skin.
Let’s move it!
What Is Facial Textured Skin?
Textured skin on the face is that skin that feels rough or looks uneven. They may also include enlarged pores, rough patches or things that make the skin appear rough and less smooth. One of the several factors which can trigger uneven skin texture is dead skin buildup.
In some cases, you may also notice discoloration or redness in the affected area. When this happens, it makes the general skin texture in the affected area uneven or rough as compared to the surrounding skin. According to experts, uneven skin texture or textured skin is usually associated with hyperpigmentation or uneven skin tone.
Possible Appearances of Uneven Skin Texture
Textured skin may come in various forms. Here are some skin texture issues that may suggest or trigger the appearance of textured skin:
Uneven facial texture with possible discolorations and redness
Enlarged pores, tiny bumps, and rough patches
Uneven skin tone with hyperpigmentation
Dermatitis, Psoriasis, keratosis pilaris, acne scars, and pockmarks.
Causes Of Bumpy Or Textured Skin
There are several factors which can cause bumpy or uneven skin texture. However, we’ve outlined the 4 major ones.
Let’s briefly look at them.
Recall that skin cell turnover is our skin’s natural way of shedding off dead skin cells. When this process becomes slow or depleted due to age or certain factors, the skin will experience dead skin cell buildup. It will lead to rough skin texture or clogged pore issues when that occurs.
When the skin is infected by bacteria or fungus, it can trigger certain skin conditions, which in turn may cause inflammation, redness or bumpiness on the skin.
Exposure to the sun without wearing sunblock or sunscreen can cause sunspots, sun damage or sunburn on the skin, thereby causing uneven skin texture and skin tone.
Overproduction of melanin which causes dark spots, patches or hyperpigmentation on the skin, can also trigger uneven skin textures due to the variation in melanin production.
Other possible causes of bumpy skin include:
Poor lifestyle habits, such as smoking, stress, bad diet
External skin pollutants.
Our Professional Treatment
Of course, each one of us desires a very smooth skin texture.
If you are struggling with uneven or rough skin texture, here are a few things you can do.
Skin exfoliation is an artificial way of supporting the natural skin cell turnover rate. Recall that you can only reveal smooth and younger skin if the dead or older skin cells at the surface are already shed. To properly achieve this, we recommend using a gentle exfoliating formula.
Avoid scrubbing aggressively or using exfoliants with rough textures or harsh chemicals. Hence, we recommend using our home-use Glycolic Acid. This exceptional exfoliator removes dead cells and leaves you with well-rejuvenated skin.
Always moisturize properly to supply adequate moisture and lock them in against all forms of skin dryness, which encourages rough skin texture. We also recommend using serums with adequate retinol and collagen-firming ingredients.
This step is crucial to ensure total protection from the damaging UV and sun rays. Sun exposure can trigger sun spots or even fasten premature aging signs like wrinkles. However, we recommend applying our Sunblock SPF 50 before leaving your house. You can also incorporate our Vitamin C + SPF 15 Cream.
