Free radicals or pollution, stress, lack of sleep, dehydration, leaving your make-up overnight, failing to exfoliate and having an unhealthy lifestyle – these are just some of the common reasons why your skin can look dull and dry.
Fortunately, there are many ways to prevent this without having to spend hundreds of dollars. You can start with wearing sunscreen daily (even when it’s cloudy outside!) to protect your skin from UV rays. Be gentle on your skin and avoid drying soaps. Using hot water to wash your face should be avoided too, as they can strip natural oils which leads to dryness and irritation.
Of course, making changes to your beauty routine is also a must. Regular exfoliation can reduce the build up of dead skin cells and contribute to a glowing complexion. You can also add serums in your regime and look for products with Vitamin C and B3 (niacinamide) to aid in hyperpigmentation.
However, if you’re looking for an easier and less complicated solution, we suggest treating yourself with a weekly face mask! This quick and simple skincare product is an excellent tool to give your skin a more even complexion over time.
