The road to achieving smooth skin can be a little bumpy. Hereís your need-to-know guide on how to turn bumpy patches into enviably smooth skin fast.
Rough, bumpy skin is a common concern that usually appears on the back of arms and legs. So what causes it and how can you help the skin on these problem patches to look smoother?
Genetics, your environment, age and skin type all play a part in its appearance but it can usually be improved with regular exfoliation and the application of targeted skincare products. So before you try to scrub your skin red or cover up your arms for yet another summer, you may want to try a more gentle and effective approach.
The products to use
Your first step in reducing the appearance of rough skin is by using the right skincare products. While it can be tempting to scrub hard at your skin, choose non-abrasive exfoliators over harsher scrubs and cleansing tools as these may irritate your skin further. Itís also advisable to look for ingredients such as salicylic acid, a beta-hydroxy acid that gently exfoliates your skin to loosen dead skin cells and prevent clogged pores.
CeraVe SA Smoothing Cleanser, for example, is formulated with salicylic acid and gently exfoliates without compromising the skinís natural barrier. Its replenishing formula, enriched with a blend of three essential ceramides (ceramides 1, 3 and 6-II) and hyaluronic acid, also helps to protect the skinís natural barrier while keeping the skin hydrated.
For best results, team with CeraVe SA Smoothing Cream thatís designed to improve skin texture while providing long-lasting hydration thanks to a Multivesicular Emulsion Technology (MVE), which releases moisturising ingredients over the course of 24 hours.
