HOW TO GET SMOOTH SKIN?
Invest in the right topical ingredients.
It’s not just acids that can help smooth skin—there are a plethora of ingredients that can help plump skin, ease fine lines, and remedy dry, rough patches. This will be particularly helpful if your texture concerns stem from maturing skin or inflammatory skin conditions, like rosacea and eczema.
Avoid popping pimples
A pimple indicates trapped oil, sebum, and bacteria. It is also a sign that the body’s natural healing mechanism is working.
Avoid touching the face
Touching the face with the hands can deposit dirt, oils, and bacteria onto the skin and lead to breakouts.
Try a honey face mask.
You can reap all the benefits of exfoliation by reaching for a kitchen staple that works wonders on your skin: honey. “Honey contains levels of alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and enzymes that help to exfoliate the skin by sloughing away dead skin cells, removing dirt and grime, reducing excess oils, and clearing out pores all without damaging the skin’s acid mantle
Get your vitamin C.
While you can’t completely reverse years of sun damage, you can repair your skin’s barrier and prevent further damage with a healthy dose of vitamin C. Vitamin C helps fade sun spots and can brighten and smooth your complexion overall.
