WHAT CAUSES ROUGH SKIN TEXTURE?
Rough skin texture not only feels unpleasant, it makes our 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 your skin texture to become leathery and rough over time.
Aging is another common cause of rough 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 harder to apply cosmetics smoothly.
WHAT ARE COLLAGEN AND ELASTIN?
Collagen is an essential component for the skin, and is what helps it stay supple and flexible. The dermis provides the foundation for our skin, and is closely involved in its elasticity because it is the main source of collagen. By having an adequate amount of collagen in the your skin, it can ensure that it looks healthy. Collagen also helps our skin stay hydrated.
Elastin is a highly elastic protein in our connective tissue that allows many tissues in the body to resume their shape after stretching or contracting. Elastin helps the skin return to its original position after it’s pinched or poked. Given the roles that collagen and elastin play, it’s easy to understand how important they are for healthy, youthful skin.
