Causes of Textured Skin

The first step in learning how to get rid of textured skin is determining the underlying cause. We all know that everyone’s skin is different, so as you can imagine, there are countless causes for uneven skin texture. We’ve listed a few of the most common ones below: 

Dry Skin: Dryness on the face is one of the most common causes for rough skin. Dry skin has a huge list of underlying causes on its own, including common skin conditions such as Psoriasis or Eczema. A lot of people also deal with dry skin on a regular basis as that is their normal skin type! Dry skin can feel rough and uneven or appear to be peeling or look flaky, all contributing to undesirable skin texture. 

Acne and Other Skin Conditions: Common skin conditions such as acne can cause bumpy and uneven skin as persistent and severe acne gets very inflamed, becoming easily visible on the skin. Severe acne can even cause facial scarring that contributes to making the skin appear uneven and textured.  

Sun: exposure to the sun can severely damage your skin, leaving it rough, dry, and uneven as excessive UV radiation breaks down the collagen in your skin, causing it to decline in elasticity. Sunburn also leads to dry and rough skin, which is why the hype around daily SPF use is actually really important for smooth and even skin. 

Aging: As we grow wiser, our skin naturally declines in its ability to produce vital proteins responsible for maintaining skin elasticity. There are many positives to aging, losing firmness in the skin is definitely not one of them in our book.

Whether one of these causes of textured or uneven skin is the problem you need to tackle or not, SKKN has an extensive line of skincare products available to help you achieve the smooth, radiant skin of your dreams.

How to Prevent Textured Skin

To avoid rough, bumpy and uneven skin texture all together is the best product for anyone, here are Kim’s quick and easy tips to prevent textured skin. 

Moisturize: Moisturizing daily is essential in maintaining soft and supple skin. Keeping your skin moisturized also helps regulate your pores, so they don’t overproduce sebum - which causes acne. To prevent dry skin, acne, and uneven skin texture, make sure to moisturize your skin with a face cream or moisturizer at least 2x a day.  

Daily SPF: Wear sunscreen of at least 30 SPF every single day. Avoid long periods of sun exposure if at all possible, bring a hat or other shade providing product to protect your skin from the harmful UV radiation of the sun. If you do end up getting burned, check out this article on the best skincare after sunburn tips. 

Acne Prevention: Some types of acne are not preventable, so this prevention method is not feasible for all, however, the more you can sooth your acne flare ups, the more even and smooth your skin will be. Wash your face regularly, steer clear of touching your pimples and any additional acne soothing techniques that work for you! 

Exfoliate: Exfoliating is a stellar method to prevent rough skin. As we mentioned earlier, regular exfoliation gets rid of dead skin cells while also encouraging new growth. Say goodbye to bumpy skin and hello to radiant, smooth, and glowing skin. 

Avoid Harmful Ingredients: Stay away from any products that will take away your skin's natural oils as this can result in irritation and dry skin, causing rough or uneven skin texture.
