Dull skin is a common skincare complaint characterized by a general lack of youthfulness and radiance. When someone says they have dull skin, it may be due to an uneven skin tone, poor skin texture, or both.
When your skin cells are healthy, the light bounces off your face making your skin appear vibrant. If your skin cells are not healthy, less light will reflect resulting in dull skin.
Top Causes of Dull Skin
There are a number of reasons dull skin may develop. Oftentimes, dull skin is a result of poor circulation. While you may wash your face twice a day, exfoliation is a separate step entirely. Exfoliation aids in the removal of dead skin cells, allowing the skin to breathe and topical products to penetrate better.
Dull skin can also be a consequence of dryness. The demands placed on our skin often cause it to crack at a microscopic level, resulting in dullness. Good moisturizers help fill in these cracks by adding lipids (ingredients that hold moisture) to create a smooth and reflective surface.
Your lifestyle choices also have a direct impact on the health and vibrancy of your skin. Excessive alcohol consumption, smoking, poor diet, and dehydration can all contribute to dull skin. In fact, any type of behavior that deprives your skin of oxygen and nutrients can cause your skin to suffer.
