Defeat Skin Dullness with These 6 Top Tips!

One of the most common complaints I hear from my clients daily is that they feel their skin is dull.

We all want that healthy, dewy, glowing skin, but there are days that it just doesn't happen. Let's find out why!

Why is my skin dull?

There is a combination of factors that give our complexion a dull, lacklustre look:

  • Decreased production of collagen and elastin
  • Sun damage - which not only causes dullness, but also dryness, dehydration, and pigmentation spots
  • Poor skincare habits - such as not exfoliating, also contribute to the skin looking lifeless
  • Lifestyle plays a big part too - late nights and poor diet can definitely add up to the dull, lifeless look you are experiencing on your skin.

What can I do to help keep dullness away?

Good news is: all of these aggravators have solutions - we don't need to just put up with the skin looking dull!

My Top 6 Tips for a bright and healthy complexion:

1. Add some Vitamin C into your skincare regime.

Vitamin C has such a brightening effect on the skin, it is a high potency anti-oxidant which protects our skin cells from damage.

It also inhibits melanin production in the skin, which helps lighten hyperpigmentation and brown spots, even out skin tone, and enhance skin radiance.

These are my two favourite Vitamin C serums to help defy dullness:

Societe Triple C - A revolutionary blend of three different, unique stabilised Vitamin Cs. This novel formula utilises Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Ascorbyl Glucoside and Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate. These three forms of Vitamin C create a remarkable synergistic combination that remains stable for long periods, offering high antioxidant, without irritation. Penetrates instantly to provide long-lasting benefits & luminosity throughout the day.

2. Stay hydrated & Eat a well balanced diet.

Drinking water helps flush out toxins and increases blood flow, which will help the skin look bright and keep the skin tone looking even.

Eating a well balanced diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables, as they contain powerful antioxidants that help to protect skin from the cellular damage caused by free radicals. Some causes of free radical damage are: smoking, pollution and sun damage.

For healthy, bright skin, eating a well-balanced diet is key! So as drinking plenty of water.

3. Do an at-home peel

Peels are a great way to kick start your skin cell turnover. Exfoliating the skin will help to polish and remove the dull and lifeless cells that sit on the surface and cause the skin to look dull. I have two favourite at home peels that will help bring the skin back to life.

A professional-grade at-home peel clinically proven to enhance radiance, visibly reduce fine lines and reveal brighter, healthier skin in just minutes a week.

4. Massage your skin!  

This is a simple & effective step you can do when applying your serums or moisturisers.

It promotes blood flow and lymphatic circulation, increasing the supply of nutrients to the cells; this gives the skin a boost to help it look invigorated and alive. Follow my simple guide to boost your skincare regime with this facial massage:

5. LED devices or in-clinic treatments

Light therapy is a fantastic way to bring life back to the skin. Just like plants, our skin and other body tissues have the ability to absorb light and convert it into energy. Light therapy stimulates the skins ability to heal and produce collagen and elastin, leaving the skin glowing. We have a brilliant LED device here at Skinmart or you can opt to go to a treatment centre and have a course of light therapy to help stimulate the skin and bring it back to life.

LightStim for Wrinkles is a high-quality, easy-to-use, at-home device that combines therapeutic light energy with patented technology to treat your fine lines and wrinkles to help recapture that plump youthful appearance.

Please choose the correct exfoliator for your skin type and use it regularly. Exfoliating helps remove the dead skin cells and allow all the other products that follow to work far more effectively.
