Rough Skin Treatments
Skin is a lot like life. We want it to be smooth, but everyone hits a rough patch now and then. Rough skin can be caused by a various things, and depending on the cause of your rough skin, may need the care of a dermatologist with methods like micro-dermabrasion or prescription creams. Many times, rough skin can be treated at home with over-the-counter remedies. It's a simple matter of knowing what ails your skin and what treatments are best for you.
Dryness is the most common cause of rough skin. Sometimes, dryness is caused by weather, but harsh cleansing products may be the culprits. Whatever the reason, you'll want to take care of your dry ASAP and return it to a smooth, gorgeous state.
Exfoliating is a great way to rid yourself of rough skin, because it sloughs off dead skin and reveals a fresh, smoother-looking skin layer. It's important to use exfoliating products correctly to avoid harming your skin. Not every exfoliating product is meant to be used daily, so check the labels.
In-shower exfoliators are a great choice because they're easy and convenient to use, and are applied when the skin has been primed by several minutes of exposure to warm water so you get a gentle yet effective scrub.
St. Ives Moisturizing In-Shower Exfoliating Body Polish, Oatmeal & Shea Butter is a great, affordable choice for an in-shower exfoliant. It smells great, isn't too rough, and delivers moisturizing natural compounds to your skin. Speaking of moisture, rough skin can't be vanquished without the use of an effective moisturizing lotion, preferably right after a shower or bath.
