5 Best Treatments For Uneven Skin Texture

Best Treatments For Uneven Skin Texture

Imagine looking forward to a date or a job interview only to wake up and find a massive pimple on your forehead or your cheek. Yikes! Sometimes, we can not avoid that monthly hormonal insurgence, but we can take care of our skin if acne is something that you battle with chronically. Acne occurs when the pores are clogged with dead skin cells, bacteria, and oil; all these factors turn into acne plug and swells and manifests themselves as an acne bump on the skin. 

What Causes Uneven Skin Texture?

I want to talk about the best treatments to use for your skin to give your skin a beautiful and smooth texture in today’s post. Some of the culprits of uneven skin texture include;

Dull Skin: You will find that you have dull skin when your skin has accumulated many dead skin cells that have not fallen off and are still lingering about your skin. These dead skin cells are old skin that needs to be shed for new skin to come to the surface of your face. We shed dead skin cells every day, but sometimes these cells hang on, and they need help falling off; in this case, you might need chemical or mechanical exfoliation to remove those cells. 

Large Pores: When you have large pores, there is often trapped debris inside your pores, such as acne plug and sebum. Most oily skin people have large pores because of the over-production of oil that the skin produces. 

Hyperpigmentation: Hyperpigmentation occurs when certain parts of your skin are darkened, causing uneven skin tone: popping acne can cause hyperpigmentation on the skin. 

Weak Skin Barrier: When your skin barrier is weak, it can be caused by using skincare products that are wrong for your skin type or harsh skincare products. A damaged skin barrier leaves your skin tight, inflamed, and sensitive. You will notice that immediately after cleansing your skin, your skin feels uncomfortable and tight. You can also experience skin dehydration when your barrier is weak because water leaves your skin easily. 

Sun Spot: This occurs when we spend a lot of time in the sun without sun protection, such as SPF, hats, and umbrellas. 

Best Treatments To Use To Treat Problem Skin

Exfoliation: We need to exfoliate our skin to help shed the dead skin cells that do not fall off naturally. Exfoliatin is simply using a chemical or mechanical means to remove dead skin cells from the skin. To caution you, be careful not to over-exfoliate because that will cause your skin to become sensitive. Exfoliating three times a week is ideal for all skin types. Look for the best products to use for your skin type. Some products you can use include glycolic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, and mandelic acid is best if you have sensitive skin. 

Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is a mechanical exfoliation that removes the skin’s upper layer using exfoliating crystals. Microdermabrasion significantly improves your skin texture and overall skin tone. Microdermabrasion will improve your acne scars, wrinkles, sun damage, and clogged pores.

Retinol: Retinol is a derivative of Vitamin A. Retinol is the weaker version of retinoids. Retinol has smaller molecules that penetrate the dermis (second layer) of your skin. Once in the second layer of your skin, retinol neutralizes free radicals and boosts collagen and elastin production; as your collagen is increased, your skin firms up and reduces fines lines and wrinkles. Retinol also has an exfoliating effect on the skin that can improve your skin’s tone and texture. Retinol speeds up healing on the skin, prevents acne, and provides natural moisturizing for the skin giving the skin a natural glow. It maintains a healthy epidermis and dermis, the two top layers of the skin. 

Sunscreen: Sunscreen is an invisible layer of protection that you apply to your skin. Most sunscreens have UVA and UVB protection that prevents the damaging sun rays from going into the skin’s epidermis and dermis. When the sun hits the dermis for a prolonged period, you get sunburned and tanned; when the UVA hits the skin’s dermis for an extended period, premature aging occurs, and you can get skin cancer as well. Sun damage on the skin can cause wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots, hyperpigmentation, dull-looking skin, and worst, skin cancer. Opt for a sunscreen that has both UVA and UVB for optimal protection. 

Use a pore vacuum tool: Sometimes, the skin’s texture looks rough because of clogged pores. When you have oily skin, your skin is prone to having large pores, especially around the nose area, because of acne plug and dead skin cells. When you use a pore vacuum tool, you place the tool on your skin to gently suction debris (especially acne, blackhead) out of your pores. To see improvements in your skin, you will have to use the pore vacuum in multiple sessions. It is imperative to steam your face to allow the pores to open up for easy suction.
