Dull skin is skin that lacks lustre and glow. The common description for it is tired-looking skin. It is as if a veil has been pulled over the skin, obstructing its sheen. It is common in all age groups especially in those who are constantly stressed or exposed to environmental pollution.
The following are a few causes of dull-looking skin:
Dry or dehydrated skin lacks water. This can be due to lack of drinking fluids or simply being in a dry environment. With that being said, over–cleansing of the skin with harsh soaps / cleansers / scrubs also removes moisture from the skin.
In people with atopy or eczema, there is a natural defect in the skin barrier. Water loss from the skin occurs from readily and the skin is more susceptible to environmental insults like weather and temperature.
In the aged skin, there is loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid, both which are vital to maintain skin elasticity and hydration. As the skin is thinner, very fine wrinkles start appearing which causes the skin to lose its’ flat surface and light-reflective properties
The wrong use of cosmeceuticals i. e using products containing too much alcohol or preservatives that strips the skin of its’ natural moisture.
Regular, thick makeup to compensate for lacklustre skin actually worsens dull skin as they prevent the skin from breathing
Lastly, stress from life and work coupled with increase in pollution soon takes a toll, rendering our skin lifeless.
