Can someone help me calculate the increase in resistance of a conductor due to the skin effect?

The skin depth of a conductor is given as d=sqrt(1/pi*f*u*sigma)

where sigma=conductivity, u=permeability, f = frequency

Once we have obtained the skin depth, how can we calculate the resistivity of the conductor at a particular frequency if the conductor radius < skin depth?

Thanks,

Anis
