Rough Skin Texture

With the current advent of over-the-counter cosmetic products and their over-exploitation due to social media influencing has finally led to a majority of people having a rough skin texture which is overly sensitive as well. Some of the common causes for this have been listed below :

  • Sun damage: Prolonged sun exposure can lead to rough skin texture due to the breakdown of collagen and elastin, resulting in a less smooth and supple appearance.
  • Age and natural ageing processes: As we age, the skin's ability to regenerate and produce collagen diminishes, leading to a rougher texture.
  • Lack of exfoliation: When dead skin cells build up on the surface of the skin, it can result in a rough texture. Insufficient exfoliation can contribute to this buildup.
  • Dryness and dehydration: Insufficient moisture in the skin can lead to dryness, flakiness, and rough texture. Environmental factors, harsh cleansers, and inadequate hydration can contribute to skin dryness.

Treatments for Rough Skin Texture

To improve rough skin texture, consider the following treatments:

  • Exfoliation: Regular exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells, promoting a smoother texture. Mechanical exfoliation with gentle scrubs or brushes and chemical exfoliation with AHAs or BHAs can be beneficial.
  • Moisturization: Hydrating the skin with a suitable moisturizer helps to replenish moisture and improve skin texture. Look for moisturizers containing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and natural oils.
  • Sun protection: Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily to protect the skin from harmful UV rays, which can worsen rough texture and accelerate skin ageing.
  • Retinoids: Topical retinoids, derived from vitamin A, can help to improve skin texture by stimulating collagen production and promoting cell turnover. These should be used under the guidance of a dermatologist.
  • Professional treatments:
    • Chemical peels
    • Microdermabrasion
    • CO2 Laser resurfacing
    • Microneedling

Remember to be consistent with your skincare routine and be patient, as it can take time for improvements to become noticeable. If rough skin texture persists or worsens despite these measures, it's advisable to consult a dermatologist for a thorough evaluation and personalized treatment recommendations.
