Skin that has a rough and uneven texture can add years to your appearance making you look much older than your actual age. There are things you can do at home that will help smooth out the surface of your skin encouraging a youthful complexion with a healthy glow.

1. Exfoliation
Exfoliation is key to obtaining a healthy complexion with a porcelain smooth surface. Using an effective scrub, peel, or home microdermabrasion system polishes away dead skin build up, dirt, and debris. You will immediately notice that your skin feels smoother and over time it will function better as well. Regular exfoliation increases cellular turnover rate and also helps your topical skin care products work more efficiently. Ideally you should exfoliate your skin 2-3 times a week in order to gain the rewards of this simple yet effective means for obtaining smoother skin.

2. LED Light Therapy
LED light therapy is a non-invasive treatment that is used in spas, doctor’s offices, and exclusive resorts to pamper and de-age the skin. LED light therapy units such as the DPL Therapy System or the Caribbean Sun Skin Rejuvenation Light efficiently treat the skin with powerful LEDs (light emitting diodes) promoting a smoother and brighter complexion along with a plethora of other anti-aging benefits. Specific LEDs, such as red, infrared, and yellow, have the ability to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin and tissue where they renew, regenerate, rejuvenate, increase cellular turnover, and boost collagen and elastin production. LED light therapy has been researched for over 40 years and has been recognized as a powerful means for improving the quality and texture of your skin.

3. Sunscreen
Sunscreen doesn’t actually have the ability to make your skin smoother but it will help protect it and keep it from getting even more rough when exposed to the damaging rays of the sun. Sun exposure is damaging to the supportive structure within your skin and can cause an uneven and coarse texture. Using a sunscreen every day will help ensure a healthier complexion with a smoother surface.

Uneven skin with a rough texture can be maddening but you can do something about it by implementing one or all of these tips into your skin care routine. Taking these extra steps will give your skin what it needs to be more beautiful. You can take years off of your appearance by making a few simple changes to your existing skin care routine.
