Rough skin texture is a common problem that many people face. Some people use foundation to conceal or cover this problem, but adding more layers of makeup can accentuate it. We understand that it can be frustrating when you try to find solutions to your bumpy, aged skin and they don’t work. Others may have been dealing with this problem for most of their lives. Some had smooth skin up until puberty. Many of us are on a constant quest to find out how to improve the texture of our skin for smoother, more youthful skin.
Unfortunately, a consistent skin care regimen can only take you so far. Various factors, including the environment, diet, hormones, and skincare products, can cause this skin condition.
We’ll show you some practical tips to improve skin texture. You can achieve smoother skin with simple habits and high-quality, non-toxic products.
What are skin texture issues?
The texture of your skin is anything that makes it appear less luminous and smooth, such as bumps, rough patches, or enlarged pores. These textures can cause redness or Discoloration. Skin discoloration and uneven skin texture go hand in hand. You can eliminate textured skin if you identify the cause.
What causes textured skin?
Many factors can cause rough skin. These include:
- Pollution Dirt and environmental stressors lead to uneven skin texture (1).
- Too much sun: If you spend much of your time in the sunlight without adequate sunscreen, your skin will be more susceptible to wrinkles, roughness, and dark spots.
- Genetics Some people suffer from genetic conditions such as eczema and keratosis.
- Environment: People with dry skin and low humidity are likelier to live in a dry climate.
- Age: Your body produces less collagen as you age (4). Collagen gives skin its firmness and support. Women’s collagen production drops by 45% when they reach menopause.
- Residual Discoloration When you pick at your skin, it leaves a dark spot. This is usually due to a reaction from decongested skin pores.
- Flaky buildup: Lack of exfoliation or removal of surface impurities can cause uneven skin texture.
- Smoking: Smoking is bad for you as well as your skin. You will not have smooth skin.
How to Improve skin texture
Use vitamin C and other antioxidants in your skincare routine.
Vitamin C and other antioxidants protect your skin from the pollution it is exposed to daily. They work with the skin’s natural defenses to give you healthier-looking skin. Vitamin C can also brighten the skin, fading dark spots and achieving a more even complexion. Are you looking for a potent vitamin C elixir?

Use SPF every day.
Apply sunscreen every morning before you leave your home. Even on days, that look too cloudy to have enough sun, the sun’s rays can damage your skin if exposed to them for a long time. Use a sunscreen that is made of natural ingredients and offers full coverage. This will act as a shield to protect your skin.
Hydrate your body and eat natural whole foods (organic if possible)
For glowing skin, hydration is essential. Water will help keep your skin hydrated, giving it a smooth and plump appearance. As you increase your water consumption, replace processed foods with whole, nutrient-dense foods. How we eat can have a significant impact on the appearance of our skin. So, nourishing yourself with healthy food is one of the best ways to get glowing skin and improve skin texture.
Massage your face more often with facial oils to boost collagen production.
Unfortunately, as we age, collagen production decreases in our bodies. You can increase collagen production by eating a healthy diet and taking collagen supplements. You can enhance the visual effects of collagen by combining it with facial massages that stimulate blood flow. This will give you a more sculpted and smoother appearance. Before massaging your skin, use a facial oil. This will make it easier to glide and reduce wrinkles.
Exfoliate your skin 2-3 times per week using different exfoliation methods.
You can exfoliate in many ways. You can use exfoliating brushes, chemical peels, or facial scrubs. All of these products will help to remove impurities and debris. The masks and scrubs collection offers two types of exfoliants: our Ayurvedic Facial scrub is a dry herbal exfoliant that is great for sensitive skin, and our Kaolin Micro Exfoliant cream is exfoliating for all skin types except sensitive skin.
Try a chemical exfoliant instead if your skin is sensitive. It will give you a deeper exfoliation without agitating it.
For best results, we recommend that you test the peel first on a small area and read the instructions to determine how long it should be left on. Please note that when we refer to a chemical exfoliant, we mean the method of exfoliation. We do not recommend harsh toxic chemicals for the face. Check out our Facial Exfoliant if you want a non-damaging, gentle chemical exfoliant. It is made from pure honey-derived lactic acid.
Introduce chemical peels/exfoliants to your regimen.
As you age, your skin has a more challenging time shedding dry skin, and the texture becomes uneven. Chemical peels can help smoothen the skin by resurfacing it and exfoliating it. Chemical peels can be done at home or in the salon. After using a chemical exfoliant, protecting your skin with SPF is essential. You will have more skin exposed after using a chemical peel. Use the product at night and avoid direct sunlight by wearing sun protection or a hat the next day.
