Dull skin and dry skin often go hand-in-hand.
Together they typically cause the skin to lack radiance, giving the surface a rough texture, and a feeling of tightness or flakiness. Dull / dry skin often appears lacklustre with the absence of a healthy glow that’s associated with well-hydrated skin.
This condition arises when the skin’s natural moisture barrier is compromised, leading to reduced hydration levels and an accumulation of dead skin cells on the surface.
When dull / dry skin occurs, it can make the complexion appear tired, aged, and less vibrant. Fine lines and wrinkles may also become more pronounced, exacerbating the appearance of ageing. Furthermore, makeup application can become challenging, as it may not adhere smoothly to dry or flaky areas.
Several factors contribute to dull / dry skin. Environmental elements like cold, dry air, excessive sun exposure, and wind can strip the skin of its natural moisture. Harsh cleansers or exfoliants, as well as certain medications, can disrupt the skin’s lipid barrier. Additionally, intrinsic factors like ageing, hormonal changes, and genetics play a role in skin dryness.
Maintaining a healthy skincare routine is essential to combat dull / dry skin. This includes using gentle cleansers, applying hydrating moisturisers, and incorporating exfoliation to remove dead skin cells. Regular use of sunscreen is also crucial to protect against further environmental damage. Adequate hydration, both through topical products and staying well-hydrated internally, can restore a healthy, radiant complexion.
