Caused by dryness, the natural ageing process, lifestyle choices, or an inadequate skincare routine, dull skin can affect any skin type, at any age. If you find yourself asking ‘why does my skin look dull?’ or often think ‘doesn’t my skin looks tired and old?’, read on to discover what skin dullness is, its most common causes, and the best products to brighten dull skin for a rejuvenated, healthy-looking appearance.
DULL SKIN MEANING
Skin dullness refers to tired, lacklustre, or even grey looking skin. Dull skin also typically has a rough and uneven texture.
WHY DOES MY SKIN LOOK DULL?
Dry, dull skin often looks tired and lacklustre, and is prone to sagging, wrinkling and roughness—all of which worsen skin dullness.
A BUILD UP OF DEAD SKIN CELLS
With age, the skin’s natural cell renewal process slows, causing dead skin cells to accumulate on the surface. This build up prevents light from being reflected, creating a dull and tired appearance.
UV rays, pollution and free radicals (which are toxic compounds) congest skin cells and cause oxidative stress. They also damage the skin barrier, restricting microcirculation and limiting the flow of nutrients and oxygen to cells.
A lack of sleep, poor diet and stress all contribute to dull, tired-looking skin. Bad habits, including a poor skincare routine or not removing makeup at the end of the day, also clog pores and affect the health and brightness of the skin.
HOW TO GET GLOWING SKIN?
One of the best products to brighten dull skin is Filorga’s new NCEF-SHOT. It’s a concentrated, 10-day anti-ageing treatment that provides the skin with a daily dose of active ingredients equivalent to one meso-injection (1), for intense skin cell regeneration. In just 10 days, skin looks visibly renewed and illuminated, as wrinkles appear smoothed, and firmness restored (2).
The ultra-light texture of this dull skin treatment absorbs instantly into the skin, while the pipette makes it easy to apply the perfect amount.
Like all skincare products in the NCEF-REVERSE range, NCEF-SHOT benefits from the signature NCEF® technology, integrated at its highest concentration to deliver a daily dose of active ingredients to the skin.
