What is Dull Skin?
Dull skin or dry skin is one of the most common skin care problems caused due to lifestyle and environmental factors. It is usually described as lack of radiance or glow – making the face appear lacklustre and unhealthy. One of the contributing factors is excessive buildup of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin, causing it to clog and lose its natural luminosity.
Another contributing factor is low collagen levels. Collagen is an amino acid protein. It is found in the dermis. Collagen makes up 75% of the protein in our skin. It provides strength and structure to our connective tissue. Elastin is another protein found in the dermis. It is responsible for giving structure and support to the skin. More collagen and elastin in your skin can make your skin more vibrant, firm and smooth, giving you a youthful, and healthy look.
To regain the skin’s radiant look, we must first understand the signs of dull skin and take necessary steps to restore its youthful glow.
Other common factors causing dull skin or dry skin may include;
- Excessive sunlight exposure without proper protection
- Lack of moisturiser
- Insufficient sleep
- Poor diet
- Excessive alcohol consumption
- Dry/Cold/Polluted environment
