Skin texture and uneven skin tone
Healthy skin is beautiful skin – that’s a fact, and while most of us long for a luminous, vibrant complexion, we’re often plagued with skin issues that make this goal seem hard to attain. For many reasons, skin texture can become patchy, rough, flaky and bumpy. Uneven skin texture causes skin to look dull, and may be accompanied by enlarged pores. The fact is, while smooth, luminous skin may come naturally to a select few, maintenance is an important and necessary reality for most.
What causes issues with skin texture or uneven skin tone?
Skin texture and tone can be affected in a number of ways and by a number of different issues. A lacklustre complexion is often the result of a buildup of dead skin cells in the uppermost layer of the skin. This causes skin to scatter light instead of evenly reflecting it, resulting in a loss of radiance. In areas of the face where oil production is heavier, these dead skin cells can congest pores, resulting in comedones (blackheads or whiteheads) and ultimately a bumpy and irregular skin texture. Sun exposure and aging can also affect skin texture, as cell turnover slows with age and damage becomes more obvious than ever.
No matter the cause, a dull and uneven skin tone can make you look tired and aged beyond your years.
