How to use "Roughening" in context?

The word Roughhening is defined as "the act of Roughening by rubbing." This is the perfect word to describe the natural process of becoming rougher. Over time, the skin will become rougher due to the repeated actions of friction.

The roughening process begins when friction against the surrounding environment causes small tears in the skin's surface. This is followed by a gradual process of new tears forming as the old ones merge, and then a proliferation of new blood vessels in the newly created surface. As the roughening process continues, the skin becomes almost impervious to further tears and scratches.
