Facial Skin Texture Problems? The A, B, C Fixes You Need

Your facial skin is one of those things that you just can't hide. When you lack confidence in how it looks, it's a huge mental stumbling block to attempt to get over. It's right there, the place that people look, the focal point of attention on you.


Aside from the more noticeable issues such as acne, one of the most obvious facial skin flaws is with texture. When we see adverts for skincare, the skin on show tends to have been airbrushed to within an inch of its life. The models are poreless, their skin the texture of cut glass that wouldn't know a wrinkle, fine line or just general roughness if it hit it in the - well, the face.


For most women, the reality is much different. Poor texture can have a direct cause, such as hormonal change, bumps from acne, previous scarring or even rosacea. Or it can have no cause at all, just a blight on your existence that seems to rudely announce itself to everyone you meet.


Combating poor skin texture, therefore, becomes a focus for many women. Below, I'm going to run through three of the most effective techniques, from direct solving of the problem to how to disguise it best. What works for you will depend on your skin type, how clear your skin is currently, your general routine and how you respond to treatments - but all should have some impact. In some ways, it's as easy as A, B and C…

A - Age Proof


The most obvious problem with facial skin texture is ageing. Fine lines and wrinkles can make even the best foundation appear papery in texture, like the top layer of skin is looser over the facial structure.


It appears to look like that because it is just like that. After the age of 21, we begin to lose our collagen reserves. Collagen is a protein that gives skin its elasticity, hence why we get wrinkles. To restore it, team both a collagen-rich face cream with internal supplements. You won't look like you're 18 again, but it should make a big difference.


B - Buff


As in, exfoliation. If it's not ageing that's the cause, then the problem might be that your skin is covered in dead cells. These aren't obvious to the naked eye, but they can make a startling difference to the overall appearance of your skin.


For exfoliation, you have two options. Manual exfoliation, such as facial scrubs, remove the top layer of skin and encourage regrowth. If you find this too harsh on sensitive skin, then try chemical exfoliation.


C - Cover


Foundations like A'pieu Air-Fit cushion foundation and others targeted at this problem are designed to glide over poor texture. Rather than falling into fine lines or sticking to dry patches like most foundations do, these specialist options will mask rather than pool over problem areas.


It may be a temporary fix, but while you work on the other improvements above it should make life a little more bearable.

The new year is fast approaching and many of us are looking to turn a new leaf and create a new image for ourselves. Of course, resolutions can change our behaviour and habits, but why not use this year’s resolutions to create a new look for yourself? This could boost your confidence significantly! Here are just a few areas that you might like to focus on to get the ball rolling the right direction!
Hair
Your hairstyle can dramatically impact your overall appearance - it can speak volumes about your personality, influences, and interests if you want it to. Now, many of us stick to very safe styles that blend into the crowd. This is why you see so many people with their natural hair shades, long locks and blunt cuts with centre partings. But why not switch things up a bit. You don’t necessarily have to shave the sides and dye your hair a wild colour. A few subtle changes can make all the difference! Consider a fringe, switching to a natural colour that doesn’t happen to b…

Choosing the Best Travel Companion for Your Next Getaway

If you’re planning on heading away from home at some point in the upcoming year, chances are that you have already looked into different destinations, different excursions and activities, and different ways of getting from A to B. But have you put much thought into who you are going to travel with? Your travel companion really can make or break a trip. A trip to somewhere that isn’t all too exciting and lacks things to see and do with someone you get on really well with will generally be better enjoyed than a trip to a stunning and luxurious location with someone you can’t stand. So, let’s take a moment to consider a few different companions that you might want to consider before agreeing to a trip and heading away!
