Even if your skin is clean and clear, if the texture is off it can leave your visage looking dull, dry, and uneven.
Often, rough textures can begin in trouble areas and start making it difficult to smoothly apply cosmetics or just give your skin a dry look.
But, there are a few simple products or lifestyle changes that may help smooth out those rough patches.
In this article, we will cover 9 tips to help keep your face looking bright, smooth, and evenly textured.
Vitamin C serums are a great go-to for a plethora of skin problems.
In the case of skin texture, Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant to combat damaging free radicals as well as boosting your natural collagen production.
Strut Brightly is a doctor and pharmacist formulated prescription beauty cream that highlights the benefits of high-strength Vitamin C combined with other pharmaceutical-grade brightening and hydrating ingredients.
One of the big factors contributing to uneven skin textures is dead skin cell build-up.
When the top layer of skin doesn’t turn over fast enough, or the dead skin cells pile up, skin starts looking rough, dry, flaky, or dull.
Tretinoin helps with this by rapidly increasing the skin cell turnover rate, and helps slough off those old cells to reveal the new shiny epidermal layer below.
Tretinoin is a prescription-only medication, so you will need a prescription for any Tretinoin product.
Our Strut Anti-Aging Formula contains Tretinoin as well as other skin hydrating and plumping ingredients.
While the sun may contribute a nice healthy glow to your skin short term, overexposure to UV rays can lead to long-term beauty negatives.
Too much tanning can cause premature skin aging as well as rough or dry skin.
If you have a sunny day ahead, do your skin some favors and make sure to apply at least 30 SPF sunscreen to your face and exposed skin areas.
There are few things as damaging to your skin texture as clouds of hot, noxious, drying smoke swirling around on the regular.
And, with all the other health detriments that go along with smoking, do your skin and your overall body a favor and ditch the cigs.
Sometimes texture changes can result from a lack of exfoliation.
Even if your general skin texture is pretty smooth, if you don’t take the time to clear away the top dead skin cells, you may end up with a dull or rough feel to your face.
Reveal your natural skin smoothness by incorporating a once or twice weekly exfoliation session.
When the DIY tips just aren’t cutting it, or you prefer to leave your skin to the pros, schedule an appointment with your dermatologist to see what options you have.
Treatments like micro-needling, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or laser resurfacing are likely to produce skin smoothing effects.(But you will likely be paying a pretty penny for these options.)
Exercise is not just great for your physique, it can help keep your skin in check too.
Getting your blood flowing on the regular can help bring more oxygen and nutrients to the micro vessels in your face, meaning those skin cells get a beauty boost in the process.
As a bonus, getting a good sweat going can help clear out those pores.
Even if you are doing every other tip on this list, if you are trying to power through your days on minimal sleep, your skin will suffer.
Beauty sleep is real, so make your sleep a priority and get at least 7-8 hours a night to reap the beauty benefits.
Your skin can act as a reflection of your overall health, so if you are chowing down on highly-processed sugar-laden foods daily, your skin tone, texture, and appearance may be paying the price.
Incorporate whole foods, with plenty of fruits and vegetables to keep a steady flow of healthy nutrients to your skin.
This also means making sure you are getting plenty of water to hydrate your skin from the inside out.
