Dull Skin? What’s The Big Deal?
Dull skin? Hmm, what’s the big deal? Apply some highlighter and get over it already! But no, the chatters about skin dullness are getting louder and louder. Why is that?
SO, WHAT IS DULL SKIN?
Different cultures may call it differently, but they all boil down to the same reasoning: dull skin means skin that is lacking radiance or glow.
HOW DID IT HAPPEN?
Lack of sleep, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, dehydration, poor diet, etc. are among some of the lifestyle factors that cause dullness. But did you know dull skin is also one of the signs of skin ageing?
WHAT? DULLNESS IS A SIGN OF AGEING?
Yes. Early signs of ageing are everywhere and can be detected as early as 25 years old, and dullness is one of them. As our skin matures, the speed of cell regeneration slows down and causes a buildup of dead cells on the surface of our skin. As a result, these junk are piling up and dulling that natural pink tone of our youth.
SO, WHAT DO I DO NOW?
Start with exfoliation. Dryness is the most common cause of dull skin, and by exfoliating, we clear off dead skin cells from the surface of our skin, allowing skincare products to penetrate better. Go for something natural by combining coconut oil and sugar in a small bowl. Rub the DIY sugar scrub on cleansed face to exfoliate. We recommend doing this twice weekly.
WILL DULLNESS HAPPEN AGAIN?
Yep. Polluted air contains a host of tiny particles like dirt and dust that create free radicals on our skin. Problematic lifestyles and habits may welcome dullness back into your life in no time at all. Keep your face clean by washing it twice daily, especially at night. Double cleanse if you have to, and always keep your face clean while trying your best to lead a healthier lifestyle. Remove makeup with Nutox Cleansing Oil before double cleansing with Nutox Cleansing Gel.
All the accumulation of dead skin cells, dirt, and dust on the surface of our skin will cause cracks and damage on the skin surface. After cleansing and exfoliating, it’s extremely important to nourish our skin. Use serum or moisturiser to fill in those fissures by adding lipids, which will then penetrate deep into the skin, seal up the gaps between the skin cells, promote repairment and cell regeneration, and reveal that youthful radiance of yours. After cleansing with Nutox Renewing Treatment Milk Cleanser, use Nutox Renewing Treatment Lotion to buff away impurities. Next, apply Nutox Renewing Treatment Essence that goes deeper to fix and repair the damage; and finally, complete the routine with Nutox Renewing Treatment Cream for a longer-lasting youthful radiance.
HOW TO PREVENT DULL SKIN?
The best way to prevent dull skin is to avoid triggers like smoking, late night parties, etc. Try eating a balanced diet; go for nutrient-rich food and drink plenty of water. It’s no biggie to opt for anti-ageing products but choose wisely. Go for something that’s suitable for your skin condition and age. Give the Nutox Renewing Treatment range a go to tackle early signs of ageing like dullness.
