5 Ways to Brighten Dull Skin This Winter
No matter how well dressed a woman is dull skin will still make her appear unattractive. A lovely complexion is what will stand out about us more than anything else. Radiant looking skin also speaks to how healthy we are. Over the years, skin bleaching creams have been the most sought after thing to take away the dullness from our skin. However, this alone cannot give our skin the kind of radiance it needs. According to most Dermatologists, from the moment we exit our teen years, the amount of dead skin cells that our body releases, begin to decrease. This worsens as we climb over age 30-40. Here are five ways to ensure your skin doesn’t get dull.
It is important to get rid of the dead skin cells as they build. Exfoliation is the ideal way to get this done. If you moisturize, use make-up or do anything else with the dead skin cells still there, your skin will still look dull. Once you exfoliate your skin on a regular basis, you will not only get rid of dead skin, but will also gain a youthful glow. Have your
Dermatologist recommend the best exfoliating cleanser and cream for your skin type. You do not need to exfoliate everyday. Twice per week is usually sufficient and remember to use a soft cloth for your face. One of the best times to exfoliate is after using a lot of make-up. It is usually best to use make-up lightly. However, when you have to use a lot, you need to ensure it is cleaned thoroughly from your skin. Make-up can help you look beautiful, but it can also help to create dull skin.
There are great moisturizers out there to keep your skin bright, moist and firm. It is usually best to use along with serum. This will help to prevent wrinkles as well. Another ingredient to ensure your moisturizer has is Ceramide. It does not only hydrate your skin but maintains the moisture that can be lost as you lose skin cells. Finally, make sure it contains Retinol which will help your skin to produce collagen. Collagen production is significantly reduced as you get older. It is important to moisturize at least twice per day. Do so in the morning, preferably with a moisturizer that contains SPF, then again at night with retinol.
This is a very strong antioxidant that brighten dull skin. It is significant in terms of removing or reducing dark spots on the skin, especially those caused by the sun. Now, we are not talking about drinking some juice with vitamin C but rather a vitamin C oil for your skin. It works wonders and makes the skin glow brightly. Most skin specialists usually recommend vitamin C for the skin. Vitamin C has always been one of the most important vitamins. It energizes you on the inside but also makes your skin reflect the healthy you when you use it on the outside. Once per day is sufficient.
Wash Your Face
Even if you choose not to shower at night, it is imperative that you wash your face. The face is exposed to so many different elements throughout the day that it needs to be cleansed at night to lift them off. It will also keep your pillow clean and not transfer dead cells back to your face each night. Make sure that the cleanser you use is gentle. Whatever you use, just do not go to bed with your make-up on or with a dirty face. Do not over wash as you will end up drying out your skin and making it dull, which is what you were preventing in the first place. Another great thing is that you won’t have to wash your face again in the morning. You only need to rinse with water.
The importance of drinking a lot of water can never be emphasized enough. Water is the most important of all the things we eat and drink. No matter how many products are bought to take care of the skin, if it is not hydrated, then your skin will still look dull. Water is not just for the inside, but also to help keep your skin moisturized and looking brighter. Blood flow to your skin helps to keep it healthy. Drinking water ensures that the blood flows to your skin consistently, leaving it with a healthy glow.
So really, there is no one way to prevent or get rid of dull skin. Once you combine all the methods listed above, you will maintain beautiful bright skin at all times. Always remember to ask your Dermatologist which skin product is best for you. A beautiful skin is a bright skin.
