What is dull skin?


Although the aging process and genetics are both significant factors, dull skin that has lost its luminosity and glow can be due to a number of reasons.

Dehydration, tiredness, sun damage, poor diet, and smoking can all contribute to the skin’s dull appearance but we can take steps to mitigate their effects by protecting the skin from excessive sun exposure, eating a healthy diet high in antioxidants, not smoking, and drinking plenty of water to remain hydrated and help flush out toxins.

Focusing on a quality skincare routine that includes exfoliation is key. Effective exfoliation speeds up cell turnover and the removal of dead cells which can dull the complexion.

Removing daily make-up and grime properly by using gentle but targeted products that clean but go easy on the skin, with water that is warm rather than hot or cold, is essential, as is daily use of a sunscreen.

Dull skin caused by age spots, thread veins and and wrinkles are not quite so easily solved and can benefit from a more targeted aesthetic intervention such as IPL Skin Pigmentation treatments, Celluma Professional LED Light Therapy, Dermapen Skin Rejevenation therapy and Chemical Peel treatments.
