4 Ways to Get Smoother Skin Texture
Today's beauty standards are marked by perfect, glowy skin that is filtered to erase skin texture. If you struggle with acne scars, enlarged pores, and fine lines and feel like the glazed donut look is impossible to achieve, consider adding these four tips into your skincare regimen. No expensive dermatology appointment or 9 step skincare routine is necessary! And remember, skin texture is natural, normal, and beautiful.
What Causes Skin Texture?
As we age, our skin cell turnover (aka shedding dead skin cells) slows down. Because of this, it can make the skin feel bumpy or rough to the touch. Time, as well as sun damage, pollution, and stress are some other factors that contribute to the texture of your skin. But according to board-certified dermatologist Dr. Guanche, eating processed foods and not drinking enough water can also contribute to dull looking skin. So without having to leave your house to get an expensive laser treatment here are some at home advice from our estheticians at Native Nectar!
At Home Treatments
Exfoliating is the easiest way to get smoother skin because it removes the dead skin cells sitting on top of your skin. Our estheticians recommend using our best selling Cherry Peel Mask once every other week to obtain a clean canvas and help your other products work more efficiently. This mask contains Glycolic, Lactic and Salicylic Acid to address multiple skin concerns including uneven texture, fine lines and clogged pores. It is important to note to not scrub too aggressively as over exfoliation can cause irritation and dry out your skin even more.
2. Include Salicylic Acid Into Your Routine
If you struggle with acne scars or have acne prone skin, salicylic acid helps clean and clear your pores, which helps you get smoother looking skin. Our Clear and Glow Serum is specially formulated to treat active breakouts, dry skin, and redness. Apply after cleansing and toning and make sure to lock it in with a moisturizer!
3. Add Vitamins A & C Into Your Life!
Vitamin A helps speed up your cellular turnover and smooth out your skin. When paired with Vitamin C, which works to brighten your skin and protect it from environmental damage, your skin will be glowing! We recommend our Multivitamin Serum which includes both of these powerful ingredients and more. You can also incorporate these vitamins into your diet. Skincare starts from the inside out so make sure you’re eating fruits and veggies that are packed with antioxidants.
4. Sunscreen Everyday!
The sun is one of the main culprits when it comes to uneven skin tone and texture. Using an SPF of 30 daily will be your best bet in preventing wrinkles and protecting your skin! And don’t forget to re-apply throughout the day. Promise?
Tackling skin texture is something that comes with consistency and patience and if you’re ever feeling like you need a little help, come and get a Dermaplane Facial at Native Nectar. Our estheticians are here daily to give you product and treatment advice whenever you need it.
