If cult products and beauty care trends are any indication, people are always looking for ways to make their skin look smoother, brighter, and younger. You have to work hard to keep your face looking young, whether you have acne in your teens or stress-related breakouts, sun damage, or the first signs of ageing as an adult. Sticking to your routine will help your skin stay smooth, but there are a few other things that can help or hurt your skin care goals. especially since your skin is affected by many things in the environment.

What makes skin rough and bumpy?

Your skin’s health can be affected by pollution, stress, and being in the sun. Over time, these things wear away at your skin, making you more likely to get roughness, wrinkles, age spots, and sagging. A board-certified dermatologist in Mountain View, California, named Dr. Lillian Soohoo says that people with inherited skin disorders like eczema, ichthyosis, keratosis pilaris, and psoriasis are more likely to have dry, rough skin.

During perimenopause and menopause, chemicals and hormones change in older women, which can make their skin less smooth in general. David Pollock, a cosmetic chemist and skin care expert, says that the way you naturally age has a big effect on the quality of your skin. Our bodies make less and less of the things that keep us looking young as we get older. Collagen protein gives strength and firmness. Pollock says that a woman has about 45% less collagen when she goes through menopause.

How to change the feel of your skin

Even though adults may not always be able to get back the firm, spot-free skin they had when they were younger, that doesn’t mean they should stop trying to age well. We’ve put together a list of tips from head to toe that dermatologists say will make your skin smoother.

Change what you eat to make your skin look better.

Even if you already know that junk food isn’t good for you, here’s another reason to cut back: Processed foods, alcohol, and refined carbs kill good bacteria and mess up the microbiome in your gut, which can cause your skin to become inflamed.

Berries and other brightly coloured foods can help you get more vitamins and antioxidants, which will make your skin more resistant to damage from free radicals. Fish also has a lot of omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for soft, healthy skin.

Dr. Heidi Prather, M.D., F.A.A.D., a board-certified dermatologist in Austin, Texas, says that vitamins A, C, and zinc are all important for skin health and regeneration. The first two can be found in most fruits and vegetables, and zinc can be found in dairy and poultry products, legumes, meat, and, perhaps most importantly, dark chocolate.

Make sure you’re getting enough sleep.

Stress can make your skin look bad if you don’t give your body time to relax and heal from the day’s work. Dr. Prather thinks that your skin may age faster if you don’t get enough good sleep. This is because your body heals and recovers from daily stress while you sleep.
