In this blog, we will talk about the causes and treatments for dull skin. 

What is Dull Skin?

Plump, smooth, and radiant skin is the ultimate beauty goal for everyone. But, many people face the issue of dull skin because of many external factors. Dull-looking skin is often characterized as skin that lacks a healthy glow and appears tired and rough. Dull skin has an uneven tone and texture, unlike glowing skin. In addition, dull-looking skin may also reveal underlying signs of ageing such as fine lines, sun damage, and dry patches.

What Causes Dull Skin?

Our lives are constantly busy and we lack time to dedicate to skin care. This can lead to skin issues making it dull and tired. There are several factors that contribute to making the skin dull. Listing some common causes of dull skin below.

Dehydrated Skin

A lot of us don’t drink enough water because of this our skin loses hydration, causing it to appear pale, dull, and tired. Dehydration also causes dark circles under your eyes. The first step to hydrating your skin is hydrating your body. It is recommended to drink at least 8 glasses of water every day. Your body may require more, depending on your daily activities and weight.

Harmful Chemical-led Skincare Products

One of the most common skincare mistakes that people tend to make is using products with harmful chemicals or toxins in them. Skincare products often have ingredients such as sulphates, parabens, mineral oil, silicones, phenoxyethanol, and more which can clog pores, cause skin irritation, and make the skin dull. It’s always better to choose skincare products that are rich in Natural ingredients, Dermatologically tested and Certified Toxin-free. The Moms Co. Vitamin C Range gives plump to your skin and repairs dull and dehydrated skin. It is a key ingredient for healthy, blemish-free, glowing skin and suits all skin types. 

Not Exfoliating Skin Regularly

Exfoliating your skin will also help it absorb skin care products in a better manner and reduce the size of the pores. It’s best to exfoliate your skin regularly depending on your skin type. The Moms Co. recommends Natural Scrub Range which is Dermatologically Tested and removes dirt, dust, and excess oil.

Skipping on Sunscreen

Sunscreens should be used daily. It’s best to use a mineral-based sunscreen that offers broad-spectrum protection and is SPF 30 or above to keep your skin protected from harmful rays. It keeps the skin protected from harmful UV rays and doesn’t make the skin dull.

Not getting Enough Sleep

Skin’s blood flow increases during sleeping which help in collagen synthesis and repairs the damage caused to the skin from UV exposure, pollution, dust, dirt, and more. Lack of sleep can often show up as dark circles, swollen eyes, and fine lines & wrinkles making the skin dry and dull. 

Tips to Prevent Dull Skin

There are plenty of tips to prevent dull skin. Consistency is the key here to making skin more beautiful. 

Develop Healthy Eating Habits

A healthy diet gives you glowing skin. Fresh vegetables, fruits, and whole grains are rich in antioxidants that help support your skin’s health. Consume foods that support your skin’s health like fresh fruits and vegetables, foods rich in vitamins, minerals, etc.

Look for Mineral-Based Sunscreens with Broad Spectrum 

Always look for a mineral-based sunscreen. It can absorb quickly without leaving any white cast and is non-sticky. Also, the sunscreen with a broad spectrum protects against both UVA and UVB radiation. Broad-spectrum sunscreens work the best on all types of skin.

Always Pat your Skin instead of Rubbing It

You should always pat or dab products onto your skin instead of rubbing them in. Patting the product leads to less wastage and helps push it deeper into your skin. Dabbing products onto your skin is a less irritating and gentle way of putting products on your skin.

Remove makeup before bed

The skin undertakes the process of renewing and repairing itself at night. When you leave makeup on your skin, it interferes with the skin’s natural processes, clogs pores, and can lead to dull skin. Before going to bed, cleanse your face with a natural cleanser and apply moisturizer to let it breathe right along with proper hydration. We recommend our Natural Face Wash Range for everyday use. It is Dermatologically tested and is suited for all skin types.
