What is uneven skin texture?
When an excess of dead cells build up on the surface of the skin (usually on the face) a person’s complexion can appear rough or uneven. This inconsistent texture causes issues with self-esteem and make up application. It can also be a symptom of more serious health conditions.
It is important to speak with a professional and figure out what you are dealing with. “Diagnosis is crucial,” explains New York City dermatologist Dennis Gross, MD. “Not only is the right treatment key, the wrong treatment can make things worse.”
What causes uneven skin texture?
Our skin relies on naturally occurring ingredients such as collagen and oxygen to maintain its moisture and elasticity. When certain elements are lacking the skin can struggle to remain smooth and radiant.
Additionally when it comes to skin texture, external factors such as our surrounding environment or substances that come into contact with our skin are also relevant. Influences like exposure to sunlight, pollution, chemicals, dirt and dust can create an uneven texture on the delicate skin on the face and neck area.
As we age our skin changes too, our hormones have a greater effect on the decreases in hydration. As we mature the outer surface skin cells are no longer shed as rapidly and the build up makes for a lifeless or irregular exterior appearance. We help many clients at Ozmedica Clinic that have noticed dry and rough skin in their older age. Plus, when the years of menopause transpire, uneven skin tone is a common side effect.
Pregnancy and some prescribed birth control in Australia can result in heightened levels of oestrogen. This then over-stimulates a female’s melanocyte cells to work overtime which increases unwanted skin cell build up and thus, uneven skin.
Other people find they suffer from acne scars long after puberty, in our adult life these indentations will directly impact the smoothness of our skin. You can read information about acne scarring and the associated Ozmedica Clinic treatments by clicking here.
Treatments for uneven skin texture
Sun protection should be the main daily priority, even though rough skin is usually more prevalent during the winter months. When the weather is cold the skin does not absorb skincare products as effectively because it is generally much more dry.
Prolonged and regular exfoliation and moisturising procedures will always assist in making your skin smooth and more youthful. Nevertheless, there are professional treatments that have a visibly striking effect more immediately.
