What are the most common issues with facial skin texture?
Skin texture on the face can change quite often, and for a number of different reasons. Sometimes, this can become a problem. So what are the most common complaints related to skin texture, and how can these be resolved? Well, there are several including:
- Flaky skin
- Oily skin
- Rough or bumpy skin
Flaky skin: causes and resolutions
Flaking or peeling skin on the face is generally caused by a lack of hydration to the skin cells, drying out the top layer of your skin. Without enough hydration, the skin will become thin, dry and flaky and this can even become sore and uncomfortable over time. In the UK, this problem is most abundant in winter, as we move from heated indoor settings to the low temperatures outside. However, if you work under air conditioning or circulated air, dry skin can also become an issue during the summer as well.
Dry skin can be resolved with a range of moisturizers and nourishing creams, but for an effective long lasting result, you should consider dermaplaning. This is an aesthetic procedure that we can provide here at the Skin and Wellbeing Clinic. Dermaplaning involves using a surgical scalpel to remove the top layer of dead skin cells, encouraging skin exfoliation. Not only will your face feel instantly refreshed and smooth, but this can also help prevent dry and dead skin from blocking pores and causing blemishes.
Oily skin: causes and resolutions
Oily or greasy skin can be an issue at any time of life. This is related to the performance and function of your sebaceous glands in the skin. These have the important job of producing sebum, which hydrates and protects your skin. However, these can sometimes produce too much, causing skin that feels oily or greasy.
To improve oily skin you could consider a chemical peel. This is an aesthetic treatment that involves applying an acidic compound to the face, and removing this along with the top layer of skin. This invokes a deep exfoliation process which allows your skin to recover, and pushes new skin cells to the top. As a result, you will notice that your skin is instantly smoother, with a balanced and even texture.
Rough skin: causes and resolutions
Rough skin is often caused by build ups of dead skin cells. These cause small bumps and rough patches to appear on the face. Not only can this feel uncomfortable, it can also have a negative impact on your self esteem and confidence.
Both dermaplaning and chemical peels can be used to address the issue of rough or uneven skin texture, and these can be very effective.
