What is orange peel skin?
Do you find your skin resembling the skin of an orange? You surely have orange peel skin. Characterised by tiny bumps or pits around the nose and cheeks, orange peel skin causes depressions or severely enlarged pores in your skin.
What leads to orange peel skin?
Orange peel skin is a result of excessive sun damage. With time, sun damage causes the collagen and elastin in your skin to break down. This lack of collagen in your skin causes your skin to form dimples and pits in your face. Moreover, this problem is often a scare for those who have thin and dehydrated skin along with poor cell turnover. Unfortunately, this is when even foundation cannot hide the rough texture of your skin.
How can you treat it?
We’ve said this before and we’ll say it again—UV rays can cause your skin to age much faster. As this is one of the primary reasons behind orange peel skin, you need to ensure that you treat a sunscreen as your holy grail product. We suggest using the Lakmé Sun Expert UV Lotion SPF 50 PA+++. This shields your skin against 97% UVB rays that can cause sunburns while the PA+++ saves your skin from UVA rays. The bigger bonus? It doesn’t feel oily on the skin!
An anti-ageing regime
Once you have an effective sunscreen in place, make sure you include anti-ageing products in your regime. We suggest using the Pond’s Age Miracle Firm & Lift Face & Neck Lifting Day Cream SPF 30 PA+++. This product contains special ingredients that boost collagen production while preventing your skin from turning dry thereby giving your skin three times more cell renewal power—just what you need when you have orange peel skin.
