Several factors contribute to rough, uneven skin texture.
As we age, the body's ability to produce collagen decreases. Elastin, the substance that enables skin to snap back into place, loses the ability to retain texture, firmness, moisture and tone. Dead skin cells do not shed as quickly as they used and start building up, leading to a rough texture and dull complexion. The environment - dirt, chemicals, pollution and sun exposure - can strip skin of its natural collagen and elasticity, causing it to appear dry or rough. Certain skin conditions too can affect the texture of the skin
Having a healthy balance diet and lifestyle, adopting an appropriate skincare regime, using sunscreen to minimise photodamage can help improve skin texture. Studies suggest that taking vitamins C, E, A, B and K help improve skin health as well.
Rough skin texture can also be treated with a number of non-invasive, evidence-based procedures including microdermabrasion
