Everyone wants skin that’s smooth, soft and glowing, but for many it’s not-so-smooth sailing after puberty hits. From hormonal acne to skin discoloration to sunspots, it’s hard to catch a break from all the unpredictable things your skin can do. So, if you’re looking for the key to smoother skin, read below for 5 simple ways to improve your skin texture.

 

1. Slather on the SPF

We’ll say it once, we’ll say it twice, we’ll say it a million times, SPF is one of the most important skincare products when it comes to your skin’s texture and youth. Sunblock even helps prevent wrinkles and reduces the amount of redness and unevenness in skin, keeping skin supple for longer.

 

2. Exfoliate Exfoliate Exfoliate

Exfoliation is a natural process that helps rejuvenate skin by removing any loose or dead skin cells from the surface, thus revealing healthy skin below. With devices like the LUNA range by FOREO, exfoliating and cleansing twice a day is efficient and quick so you can say goodbye to dull skin fast!

 

3. Try a Chemical Peel

Although it may sound scary, chemical peels are a great at-home treatment to further repair rough skin. A chemical peel helps remove sun-damaged skin, stimulates regrowth and evens out the texture and pigment of skin while promoting collagen production. If that doesn’t sound like the recipe for flawless skin, then what does?!

 

4. Stock up on Vitamin C

With a myriad of vitamin C-infused serums and moisturizers on the market today, there’s no excuse for not taking advantage of this powerful antioxidant in your skincare routine. Vitamin C helps improve the skin’s texture by repairing and defending the skin from environmental damage while reducing pigmentation, scar tissue and age spots. Incorporating vitamin C into your skincare routine now, will help keep your skin young, fresh and soft in the future!

 

5. Start Using Oils

Besides their soothing scent and consistency, oil-based products are ideal for regulating sebum production in skin – thus making it supple, yet balanced and ultra-smooth. If you’re in need of balance or extra moisture, try incorporating face oils into your nightly skincare regimen and watch as you wake up with baby-soft skin.
