Several factors contribute to an even complexion, including the amount of collagen and elastin present in the skin. Collagen and elastin are the proteins responsible for skin elasticity, tone, and texture, and are affected by diet, age, hormones, skin products, cosmetic treatments, and overall health. In order to achieve smooth skin and a radiant complexion, it is important to understand how these factors affect one another. Come in for a consultation with one of our dermatologists for a full dermal analysis so we may help you target your problem areas and prescribe the best treatment plan for your skin condition.
What causes uneven skin tone and texture?
There are several environmental factors that can cause the skin to appear blotchy and uneven including exposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays, smoking, pollution, wind, dirt, chemicals, and the climate you live in. These elements strip the skin of its natural collagen and elastin fibers, causing it to appear dry, rough, and wrinkled. Age also plays a role in the formation of wrinkles, age spots, blotchiness, and rough skin texture. Fortunately, it is possible to reverse some of the damage and reduce the outward signs of aging by carefully following a skin care treatment and protection regimen.
Specific skin conditions such as acne, melasma, and rosacea can severely affect the skin’s overall health and contribute greatly to an uneven skin tone and texture. If you experience excessive inflammation, itching, dryness, or pain, it is important to see one of our dermatologists to diagnose your problem and start you on a treatment plan for your specific skin condition.
What can I do to improve my skin health and appearance?
There are a number treatment options we offer to achieve smooth skin and a vibrant complexion. Our dermatology team will diagnose your skin imperfections and discuss a treatment plan designed specifically for you to achieve healthy, glowing skin. In addition to our dermatologist’s recommendations, simple lifestyle changes can make all the difference in achieving healthy skin. Among the many other health benefits it provides, regular exercise (about 30 minutes per day) increases circulation and supplies extra oxygen to the skin. Drinking eight glasses of water a day is also one of the easiest and least expensive ways to improve skin texture and appearance. Finally, a balanced diet that is rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids (found in wild-caught cold-water fish, walnuts, fortified eggs, flax seeds, and leafy green vegetables) can help keep your skin smooth and healthy year-round.
