Dull skin is a common occurrence among young adults and can be hard to tackle! Oftentimes we don’t know what causes dull skin and how we can treat it, but we here at FaceTory have done the research and want to share it with you so you can minimize and treat dull skin!
Dull skin is an all-encompassing term for skin that is no longer healthy! Some common reasons behind dull skin are the over-accumulation of dead skin, debris from the day, and skin being dehydrated.
Things like diet–the food you eat daily–lifestyle, and your morning and night skincare routine help combat and alleviate dull skin so you can have a radiant complexion all throughout your day! Let’s take a deeper look at these factors, shall we?
Incorporating Skin-Friendly Foods
The type of foods you consume can help make or break your skin! Now we’re not telling you to completely cut off your favorite chocolate bar or your favorite sour gummies, but we want to remind you to just eat them in moderation!
Incorporating more foods like flaxseeds, salmon, and walnuts into your diet are fantastic ways to keep your fatty acid levels high! These same fatty acids are the building blocks for your skin barrier so your skin looks plump and young!
Other foods that have high antioxidants like broccoli, spinach, and carrots, or for our fruit lovers, strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries, are great for the skin because the antioxidants can help protect your skin from oxidative damage that comes from free radicals like the sun!
If you’re still looking for a reason to use SPF, look no further because, without it, you’re inducing more damage to your skin. The UV rays break down all the really important proteins in your skin which can damage your skin barrier, leading to dull, uneven-looking skin!
So if you’re going out for the day, don’t forget to lather some sunscreen on your skin!
Upgrading your skincare routine
Exfoliation is a common term you hear in skincare, and for good reason! Exfoliating weekly, or biweekly depending on your skin type, can help rid the skin of leftover dead skin cells! This causes skin cell turnover so you have beautiful, radiant skin when you’re done exfoliating!
Incorporating skincare ingredients like Vitamin C or Yuja Extract are great ways to brighten your skin. Apply it to any areas of concern on your skin, and like any other skincare product, be consistent as it will take some time before you notice any differences!
Some products that contain Yuja Extract are the FaceTory Star Velvet Sleeping Mask! Apply this mask after your night routine, right before bed, and let the mask work its magic while you sleep! You’ll wake up feeling refreshed and left with beautiful, glowing skin!
The FaceTory Be Bright Be You Sheet Mask contains Lemon Fruit Extract (Vitamin C) which helps target dull areas on the skin and brightens them! The sheet mask also helps target dry skin and gives them a boost of hydration!
Dull skin may seem intimidating to tackle as there's an influx of information out there, but we hope we simplified and gave you an idea on how to obtain that glowing complexion!
