Why Your Face is Not Smooth

You're already aware of how sun exposure can mess with your skin tone (freckles, melasmadark spots, etc.), but the same can also be said about its effect on your skin's texture. 

Poor skin texture is caused by excessive exposure to UVA rays, wind, dirt, smoking, some medications and lifestyle.

UVB rays cause the premature death of living skin cells, which can lead to increased skin roughness, while UVA rays increase pigment production that'll give your skin an overall mottled texture and skin tone.

Whether due to acne, aging or pore size, texture issues can leave skin looking flat, dull and less youthful. Over your lifetime, your skin will go through many changes that affect and alter its surface. These are the most common causes of uneven skin texture. Dryness is a common cause of uneven skin texture.

If you’re prone to picking and popping, acne scars may emerge on your complexion. As blemishes heal, your skin elicits an inflammatory response to repair the damaged tissue.

This disrupts the production and structure of collagen, causing indented scars to sink into the skin. These typically present as ice pick, boxcar and/or rolling scars that disrupt an otherwise smooth surface.

Uneven skin texture is commonly a result of excess dead skin cells that build up on the surface of the skin. This can make areas of the skin feel rough or bumpy to the touch and can also give the skin a dull appearance.

To help get rid of rough skin, exfoliate two to three times a week. Exfoliating with a gentle face scrub helps get rid of dead skin cells and other pore-clogging material. Add a brightening mask a few times a week to nourish and smooth your skin.
