What are the causes of irregular skin texture?
Irregular skin texture not only feels unpleasant, it makes skin look dull. Sun exposure causes the breakdown of collagen and elastin that gives skin its smoothness and resiliency. Sun damage hurts skin texture slowly and is not highly visible right away. Exposure to too much sun will cause a person’s skin texture to become leathery and rough over time.
Aging is another common cause of irregular skin texture. With aging, surface skin cells aren’t shed as rapidly, causing dead skin cells to build up and skin to appear dry and blotchy. Dry and dehydrated skin also affects its texture, causing skin to feel less velvety to the touch, making it hard to apply cosmetics smoothly.
The causes of skin laxity
Skin laxity, or looseness, is an unfortunate result of the aging process. As we grow older, the production of elastin and collagen in our bodies slows down. These are the two substances needed to keep our skin tight and supple. The loss of facial contour and definition, hollow cheeks, jowls, and turkey neck are some of the concerns that our patients feel the most self-conscious about. Often they can leave us looking much older than we actually are.
The causes of uneven skin tone
Skin tone can become uneven for a number of reasons. Skin blotches, pigmentation, dark patches, and age spots are all conditions where pigment is unevenly distributed, giving our skin a dull and blotchy tone. Healthy and nourished skin tone is bright and luminous.
