Flaky, itchy, sensitive, tight and dull skin lacks sebum (oil), is more susceptible to premature aging, and constantly needs moisturizer and oil-rich products.
Skin is the last organ to receive the nutrients and water we consume. Indeed, it is not quite enough; making topical products a must for skin that feels comfortably moisturized and hydrated.
Dry, dull and blotchy skin tones occur due to various factors, and can often be an indication of your body’s general health.
Factors that cause Dull Skin
- Aging skin
- Uneven skin tone
- Appearance of blemishes and spots
- Loss of natural glow of the skin
Skin becomes dull when rough, dead skin cells pile up and diffuse light. As we age, the process of cellular turnover increasingly slows down, and is also affected by other factors like overall health, diet, quality of sleep, medication, or hormonal changes. The result is that your skin becomes duller and loses some of its reflective qualities.
As mentioned above, skin is constantly shedding cells – dead skin cells on the face are completely natural. When skin cells die, new cells are brought to the surface, bringing with them the moisture and lipids that bring a healthy glow to your face. Skin glows when it’s smooth enough to reflect light.
Botanical oils are having a much-deserved revival in skin care. They're predominantly moisturizing – mature, aging skin soaks up high levels of rejuvenating antioxidants, polyphenols and vitamins. Furthermore, oily, acne-prone skin will dissolve waxy, fatty deposits to deep clean without over drying.
Everything from your lifestyle, water intake, diet to an age-related decline in facial skin-cell turnover can contribute to how bright your complexion is.
In the face, when circulation is poor, blood may not reach the outermost layers of the skin, leaving you with a dull, dry or tired complexion.
It is known that increased blood circulation contributes to glowing skin. Increased blood flow also regulates temperature and may carry more waste or toxins to the sweat glands from where they can be cleared and cleansed through sweat.
Developed as a powerful lipid replenishing formula, this serum helps strengthen the epidermal barrier to maintain hydration in the deeper layers. The restoration of moisture content of the epidermis dramatically reduces dark circles, smoothens fine lines and wrinkles.
