Everyone wishes to have smooth and flawless skin but as we age our skin becomes less smooth and radiant. Although it’s not possible for us to claim baby-like smooth and flawless skin in our adulthood but here’s what you can do to improve and enhance the texture of the skin.
When you touch your face if you feel roughness and dryness, it clearly means you’re dealing with uneven texture. As we grow the skin’s mechanism to shed dead skin slows down and the buildup of dead and keratinized skin leads to skin texture.
If you want smoother skin, which we guess all of us desire, follow these 5 easy tips to improve your skin texture.
SPF Is Must
SPF is a very important step in your skincare regime. If you skip applying SPF, you’re making every other skincare product you use a waste.
SPF not only protects your skin from harmful UV rays but also increases the skin’s healing ability. So, make sure you always apply an SPF even if it’s a rainy day outside. And, never use an SPF less than 50, as SPF 50 provides your skin a higher level of protection i.e. protects from 97% of UVB rays.
Exfoliation Is The Key
If you want smooth and glowing skin, exfoliation is what you should regularly follow. Exfoliation helps remove dead skin which leads to rough and dry skin. When the accumulated dead skin is removed from the surface, the healthy skin underneath is revealed.
It also helps in fading the acne scars and dark spots. Exfoliation is very effective but you should be vigilant while exfoliating your face. Over-exfoliation can harm your skin rather than causing any benefit so you should exfoliate your skin once a week and not more than that.
We would suggest you go for chemical exfoliation over physical exfoliation as it works on the deeper layers of the skin.
Incorporate Face Serums
Another important thing you should religiously use on your skin is a good face serum. Face serums are one such step in your skincare that works in reversing skin damage and improving the quality of the skin.
You can choose face serum according to your skin type, for instance, if you have dry skin, prefer using an oil-based and vitamin-c serum. The best way of applying the face serum is before applying a moisturizer.
Less Is More
Always keep a simple and easy skincare routine. Your skincare regime should not include 10 steps to be effective rather should have a few steps that are actually needed by your skin. Eliminating unnecessary skincare products and steps from the list helps your skin healing naturally.
Using too many products on your skin makes the texture of the skin appear rough and dry thus make sure you use less but use what your skin needs.
Use The Right Moisturizer
Hydrating your skin helps in treating the uneven texture of the skin. So, no matter if you’re oily skin or dry, moisturizer is something you must use.
Not only moisturizer prevents dry skin but also replenishes the lost moisture content. For oily skin, you should use a light-weight water-based moisturizer that sinks into the skin without giving a heavy feel.
Bonus-tip- include a healthy diet with lots of veggies and fruits and also follow a healthy lifestyle, what you eat reflects on your skin.
So, these are a few steps you should follow if you want to have smooth and glowing skin. We hope the feed turns out to be a great help!
