dull skin FAQs

what is dull skin?

Dull skin is when the skin lacks brightness or radiance and can leave the look of tired or lifeless skin. This could include lacking a natural glow or a lack of colour in the cheeks and face.

what does dull skin look like?

Whilst it is important to note the appearance of dull skin may vary from person to person, visible symptoms of dull skin can include a lack of radiance, uneven skin tone, tired appearance, rough texture, visible pores, dry or flaky skin and dark circles under the eyes. 

why does my skin look dull?

There are many reasons why your skin could be looking dull as the skin is impacted by both external and internal factors. Some factors that can contribute to dull skin or lacklustre skin include:

  1. Dead Skin Cells: If you don’t regularly exfoliate your skin, this can lead to a build-up of dead skin cells on the surface of your skin which can result in dull skin or lacklustre skin.
  2. Dehydration: You may have heard dermatologists say, drinking lots of water each day can make your skin look and feel brighter. This is true! Without enough regular water intake, you can begin to experience dull skin and appear dry, flaky or rough.
  3. Blood Circulation: Dull skin can also be a result of a lack of blood flow in the body. Exercising regularly and massaging the skin can improve overall circulation.
  4. Environmental Factors: Changes to your environment or climate can contribute to dull or lacklustre skin. This includes exposure to environmental pollutants, harsh weather conditions or UV radiation.
  5. Ageing: As we age, our skin can lose some of our natural glow or radiance over time. This is because our skin’s natural renewal process can slow down and our body’s natural production of collagen and elastin decreases. Find anti-ageing skincare products here.
  6. Fatigue: As we experience a lack of sleep over time this can lead to dull skin or lacklustre looking skin. It is important to get our beauty rest and recommended hours of sleep each night to not only improve our skin, but our overall wellbeing.

  4. Niacinamide: This has anti-inflammatory properties to help with uneven skin tone to reduce dark spots and bring back the natural radiance of your skin.
