Poor uneven skin texture can be caused by specific problems such as acne or rosacea. But it is often a product of other factors such as sun damage, ageing, incompatible skin care products and poor exfoliation.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
As we age there is a natural breakdown in collagen and elastin, which causes fine lines and wrinkles to appear. The onset of fine lines and wrinkles can also be accelerated by long-term exposure to the sun and UV rays.
An often-misunderstood subject given that the pore size itself can’t be changed. However the appearance of the skin can be adjusted to minimise the visibility of pores. Hydrating the skin and stimulating collagen can dramatically reduce the visibility of pores.
Erythema is caused by irritation, inflammation or a reaction to a harmful external factor. Sensitive skins are more prone to irritation and this results in symptoms such as redness, blotchiness or itchiness.
Skin dryness is caused by external factors and environmental factors. Certain ingredients in cleansers can be excessively drying and can result in skin feeling tight and sensitive. Air-conditioning, dry climate or air travel can also contribute to dry skin.
Dull skin tone is caused by a combination of external factors such as smoking, alcohol consumption and UV exposure. These factors can harm your skin by depriving it of nutrients and oxygen. Dehydration and poor exfoliation can also contribute to dull skin tone.
Pigmentation occurs when the body produces too much melanin. This is often due to sun exposure, stress, inflammation, injury or hormones.
There are several reasons for dark circles to appear such as ageing, hereditary conditions, allergies and fatigue. In general as we age, the skin under our eyelids gets thinner resulting in the blood vessels beneath this layer of skin becoming more pronounced, and this exhibits as a darker shade.
