Uneven skin texture is usually caused by a build-up of excess skin cells, these build up on the surface of the skin causing the skin to look dull, and feel rough and bumpy to the touch. Unfortunately, often uneven texture is caused by things that are beyond our control such as Scarring and Keratosis Pilaris (a harmless condition whereby hair follicles become blocked by excess keratin).
Dull skin: Skin that is lacking a healthy brightness can be related to aging and sun damage. But can also be pinpointed to dehydration, poor sleep, stress, poor skin care routine and smoking.
Rough & Bumpy: Rough and bumpy skin is usually linked genetically, or by scarring and ageing.
Large pores: In addition to an oily skin as we age our pores increase and get larger this happens due to a decline in skin tone.
When an uneven skin texture is present on the complexion it can create an undesirable aged appearance upon the skin. This type of skin texture can effect men and women of any age.
What can I do to reduce uneven skin texture?
Vitamin C – Is great for uneven skin tone, rough texture, fine lines, acne scars and general dullness. This incredible antioxidant, anti-inflammatory is known to improve skin texture, hydrate the skin, and reduce signs of aging. This water soluble nutrient plays an important role in keeping our skin healthy.

Vitamin C helps the production of collagen keep our skin youthful and brightens the complexion. It can heal wounds and repair damaged skin, preventing the skin from prematurely aging.
