About the Expert
Hello, I'm Kristy Charlier, professional esthetician and today I'm going to show you how to improve skin texture. Healthy skin is characterized by a nice smooth complexion. It's radiant and unhealthy skin has got a rough appearance, maybe some lumps and bumps, some open pores, some thicker type skin. All these texture concerns can be treated with the proper skin care regimen. On Eileen I'm going to use L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Clinical Repair 10 Day Treatment. One of the fastest ways to improve skin texture is by using a great moisturizer that will nourish the skin giving it back that firmness, that hydration. So on damp skin you want to apply about a pea size of moisturizer. This has a great pumping action, just about that much product. I'm going to mix this up into the fingertips into the palms of the hands, gently patting all areas of the face. This product has a Retinol in it as well so it will still be great in normalizing skin function, controlling oil production. It also helps to exfoliate the skin. This will get rid of any dull dehydrated skin that's built up on the surface allowing those healthy skin cells to come to the top of the skin. Retinol is a derivative of Vitamin A and Vitamin A has been proven to thicken up the top layers of the skin. This will allow these wrinkles and fine lines to be puffed out leaving you with more of a dewy, hydrated complexion. Another benefit of Retinol is its exfoliation properties. So it will slough off those dead skin cells on the surface leading to a more radiant complexion. This product also contains a UVA/UVB protection of an SPF of 20 so it can be used in the daytime only. One final type to improve texture it would be to use an enzyme peel or a mask on a weekly basis. And that's how you improve skin texture. I'm Kristy Charlier. Thank you for watching.
