What is Dull Skin?

Dull skin is one of the most common skin problems 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 found in the dermis, and is the most abundant protein there, making up almost 75% of the skin. It provides strength and structure to our skin. Elastin is also another protein found together with collagen in the dermis. It is also 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 causes of dull skin, and then take the necessary steps to restore its youthful glow.

Common factors causing dull skin may include:

  • Excessive sunlight exposure without proper protection

  • Lack of moisturiser

  • Insufficient sleep

  • Stress

  • Dehydration

  • Poor diet

  • Excessive alcohol consumption

  • Smoking

  • Dry/Cold/Polluted environment
