All About Textural Irregularities

What are textural irregularities? Texture occurs when the skin is not functioning properly.

How does skin look/feel like? Bumpy and rough, maybe dry and or red.

What causes it? The skin might become textured due to dryness, inflammation and/or blocked pores.

Which The Ordinary Products are good for Textural Irregularities?

  • Hyaluronic Acid 2%– Hydration is very important to ease stressed, textured skin
  • Lactic Acid 10% + HA is exfoliating and hydrating. Lactic acid is the perfect choice for rough skin
  • Retinoids. Like Granactive Retinoid and Retinol, they have a great normalizing effect on the skin
  • NMF. You will need all the moisture to help tackle rough skin

Which ingredients should you avoid with Textural Irregularities?  Avoid products containing alcohol and fragrance like the plague. They will only cause your skin harm and worsen your condition.
