TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – Do you have any skincare routine for day and night? If so, you probably already know how to deal with various skin problems, such as acne. However, there are times when you feel that your skin is uneven or that your pores are enlarged.
Experienced dermatologist Adarsh Vijay Mudgil explained that skin texture is basically about how soft your skin feels. The skin with good texture is smooth and soft when you touch it. While it shows a bad skin texture.
“A bad skin texture is when it becomes rough and uneven,” said the founder of Mudgil Dermatology, New York, United States. “The accumulation of dead skin cells can make the skin feel rough and look uneven. Dilated pores and prolonged exposure to the sun can also affect the skin’s texture.”
But do not worry. “Prevention is number one,” said Dr. Mudgil as quoted by Elle. Dr. Mudgil added that laser treatment can repair skin texture.
Here are some tips from Dr. Mudgil to improve the texture of your skin:
1. Wear sunscreen
Sun exposure is the main cause of uneven skin tone and dilated pores.
2. Avoid smoking
Give up smoking. Do it for your skin.
Dr. Mudgil stated that exfoliating the skin regularly helps improve skin texture. Exfoliate the skin with a gentle peel or cleanser. Other options is to visit your dermatologist for chemical peeling. If you prefer to exfoliate at home, use a helpful guide to find the best scrub for your skin types.
4. Keep your skin hydrated
A moisturizer can prevent dryness or excess sebum on the skin. When your skin is balanced (hydrated) your skin becomes soft and smooth.
5. Try the laser treatment
“Laser treatment can repair skin texture,” said Dr. Mudgil. If you feel that the texture of your skin has not improved with home treatments, it would be better to consult your dermatologist to decide which skin care is best for you.
