Reasons Why Your Skin Is Rough

Reasons Why Your Skin Is Rough
Skin is naturally smooth and supple. If your skin is rough, dry, or flaky, that means its natural moisture barrier may be impaired, leaving you exposed to more skin damage. Here’s what could be causing your rough skin — and how we can help.

When it comes to healthy, beautiful skin, most of us think in terms of a clear, even skin tone. But texture is important, too. Rough skin quickly undermines your confidence in your appearance, and in the winter, rough patches become even more common.

The team at Luxbae understands the important role smooth, healthy skin plays in how we look and how we feel. We offer special treatments aimed at helping women and men in West Hollywood and Glendale, California, smooth out rough skin. 

Here’s how our team can help you enjoy smoother, sexier skin.

Rough skin: Why it happens

Some medical skin conditions, like eczema or psoriasis, can cause rough skin. But for most people, dryness is to blame. In fact, one study found that about a third of adults suffer from dry skin. 

Your skin depends on ample moisture to stay plump, hydrated, and smooth. When your skin doesn’t get or retain enough moisture, dryness results.

Dry skin is especially common in winter. In Southern California, that’s largely because the outside air is less humid than it is in the summer. In areas with cold weather, indoor heating increases skin dryness — a particular problem for anyone who heads to snowy climes for winter vacations.

Using harsh skin care products, using the wrong moisturizer for your skin type, and even certain medications can dry your skin. Worse, all these issues tend to get worse as you age, and skin becomes thinner, losing its ability to retain moisture the way it did when you were younger.

Dryness also leads to skin flaking. As dead, dry skin cells build up, your skin can quickly feel rough or develop an otherwise uneven texture.

Smooth out your rough skin

Dry, rough skin may not seem like a big deal, especially if it’s not accompanied by other symptoms, like itching or excessive flaking. But when your skin’s natural moisture barrier is impaired, it can lead to infections, sores, and other more serious skin problems. Treating rough, dry skin early helps keep your skin healthy and avoid these and other complications.

At Luxbae, we offer treatments to help your skin stay smooth and beautiful, including in-office treatments and take-home products tailored to your skin’s needs.

Morpheus8® is a popular treatment for many people suffering from rough skin. This treatment uses a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency energy to stimulate your skin’s collagen production, and it also helps nourishing serums penetrate more deeply.

We also offer Biologique Recherche skincare products, luxury products only available through skin care professionals. Following a comprehensive skin evaluation, our team customizes a treatment plan using products tailored to your needs. We also offer high-tech facials featuring cryotherapy, massage, microcurrents, and Biologique Recherche products for deep moisturizing and skin repair.
