An all too common skin concern amongst both men and women is uneven skin texture. Sometimes this is due to specific skin problems such as rosacea or acne, but it can also be a product of sun damage, ageing or the result of using the wrong skincare products. Uneven skin texture is often more prominent during the winter months, when skin is drier and the epidermis is not absorbing serums and moisturizers in the way it should.
Uneven skin texture can leave skin looking older and duller because it doesn’t reflect light as well.
Skin in areas that are not exposed to sunlight is usually soft and smooth to the touch, an indication that sun damage contributes to uneven skin texture. Sun protection should be a priority because sun exposure contributes to uneven skin texture by breaking down collagen and elastin. Choose a sunscreen that offers high-powered protection against both UVA and UVB rays. Wear it indoors and outdoors because UVA rays can penetrate glass. You can’t necessarily reverse sun damage but you can prevent it.
