TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Do you have any skin care routine for day and night? If so, you've probably know how to deal with several skin problems such as acne. However, there are times when you feel your skin is uneven or your pores getting enlarged.
Experienced dermatologist Adarsh Vijay Mudgil explained that skin texture is basically about how smooth your skin feels. Skin with good texture are smooth and soft when you touch it. While a bad skin texture is noticeable.
"A bad skin texture is when it gets rough and uneven,” said the founder of Mudgil Dermatology, New York, United States. “The accumulation of dead skin cells can make the skin feels rough and look uneven. Enlarged pores and prolonged sun exposure can also affect the skin texture."
But worry not. "Preventation is number one," said Dr. Mudgil as quoted from Elle. Dr. Mudgil added that laser treatment can repairs the skin texture.
Here are some tips from Dr. Mudgil to improve your skin texture:
1. Wear sunscreen
Sun exposure is the main cause of uneven skin tone and enlarged pores.
2. Avoid smoking
Quit smoking. Do it for your skin.
Dr. Mudgil stated that exfoliating your skin regularly helps to improve your skin texture. Exfoliate the skin with a soft peeling or a cleanser. Other options is to visit your dermatologist for chemical peeling. If you prefer to exfoliate at home, use a helpful guide to find the best exfoliator for your skin types.
4. Keep your skin hydrated
A moisturizer can prevent your skin from dryness or excess sebum. When your skin is balanced (hydrated) your skin becomes soft and smooth.
5. Try laser treatment
"Laser treatment can repairs the skin texture," said Dr. Mudgil. If you feel that your skin texture has not improved with home treatments, it would be best if you consult your dermatologist to decide what is the best skin care for you.
