Do You Have Rough Skin On Your Chin Or Other Parts Of Your Face?


Rough skin on your chin or other parts of the face could be caused by several things. Here’s a look at the possible causes and what you should do in each case.

Allergy or Sensitivity If the area is also itchy or flaky, the cause could be an allergic reaction. Often, the reaction is caused by an ingredient in your skincare products.

This could be a chemical or fragrance ingredient in your cleanser, moisturizer or cosmetics.

If there is no itching and little or no flaking, the problem could be sensitivity to an ingredient in one or more of your skincare products.

Unlike an allergic reaction, sensitivities are very common and can develop over time, even if you have used the same skincare products for years.

The best way to rule out an allergy or sensitivity is to stop using all of your skincare products for at least a day or two.

You can use plain water to cleanse the area and just skip everything else for a while. A good time to try this is over the weekend.

If your rough skin on your chin or another part of your face does go away after this test, you can do one of two things.

You can try to isolate the cause by adding one product at a time back into your regular routine. That is a time-consuming process. The other alternative is to buy a new line of skincare products and cosmetics that contain no allergens or irritants.

Excessive Dryness Roughness is often related to dryness. While dry skin can be itchy and flaky, the only symptom could be roughness.

It is unusual for a dryness issue to be confined to a single area. But it could be that most of your face is dry and you had not noticed the issue.

The solution to excessive dryness is to use a good moisturizer that does not contain petrolatum or mineral oil.

Those ingredients can actually cause dryness and roughness by changing the skin’s natural pH level.

Hair Removal If you’re a man or shaves or a woman who uses any type of facial hair removal, your problem with rough skin on your chin may be caused by that. Constantly shaving the same area will cause roughness.

Using wax or some another kind of hair removal system can cause roughness, too. The solution here is not an easy one. The best advice is to use a good lubricant when shaving.

Plain grape seed oil is actually an excellent saving lubricant. After shaving, you can use witch hazel to soften and soothe the skin. Some men’s facial fluids contain both ingredients so that you can use just a single product.

For women, the best solution is to try a different hair removal process and always follow up the process with a good moisturizer.

Remember to avoid petrolatum and mineral oil.

An Underlying Health Problem If none of the solutions above resolve your problem of rough skin on your chin or other areas, you should consult your doctor or a dermatologist.

There could be a problem with your thyroid gland, especially if you have other symptoms.
