Do you struggle with your uneven skin texture? This is definitely one of the most annoying skin problems. Unlike uneven skin tone that you can easily cover up using makeup, uneven skin texture is a lot harder! Uneven skin texture can be in the form of enlarged pores, acne scars, or dead skin build-up.
What causes uneven skin texture?
Many might not know this, but too much stress can actually affect your skin texture! Have you ever noticed that whenever you are stressed, you get breakouts and oily skin? This is because stress triggers the body to produce more cortisol hormones, which makes your skin oily and prone to acne. If you have more acne, your pores might get enlarged and easily clogged by dirt.
Meanwhile, when your skin is dehydrated, you will also have uneven skin texture. Dry skin is prone to having dead skin build-up that makes the skin flaky and rough.
If your skin is always exposed to the sun, it will also affect the natural pore size and elasticity of the skin. This occurs because the heat from the sun dries out the skin and removes the collagen that makes it elastic and moisturised. The tissue beneath the skin will then shrink so the texture becomes saggy, and the pores get bigger.
Aging also affects the texture of the skin. When we age, the sebaceous glands produce less oil so the skin will get dry and less elastic. This process leads to wrinkles and rough, dark patches on the skin.
Genetics is also a factor. If having acne and big pores runs in your family, then you are likely to have them as well. Like aging, you cannot stop how genetics can affect the way your body and skin look. But, there are many ways to treat your uneven skin texture!
How to treat uneven skin texture?
First thing to do is to deal with the factors that you can control such as sun exposure and stress. If you really need to go out and be exposed to the sun, make sure that you apply sunscreen for extra protection.
As much as possible, find ways to unwind after a stressful day--maybe through meditation, workout, talking to friends, or even just simply watching funny videos online. Having a positive emotion can actually help your skin repair and renew skin cells easily!
Regular exfoliation also helps! Scrubbing off the dead skin cell build-up will minimize the bumps and roughness of your skin. Once you wash away the dirt and dead skin, you are renewing your skin so you will have a fresher, smoother skin texture.
