How to get glowing, brighter looking skin
Dull skin is characterised by a lacklustre, a tired and unhealthy appearance, which can then put an emphasis on wrinkles. The good news is that there are easy ways to regain your healthy glow. Simple changes in habits and the use of skincare products and treatments can help to rejuvenate and brighten dull, tired skin quickly. Identifying the cause of dull skin, like those listed below, is the first step in achieving the radiant complexion in no time.
Tired of dull-looking skin? There are several causes, including:
- Lack of sleep: Not getting enough sleep can lead to dark circles under the eyes and a pale, tired-looking complexion.
- Dehydration: When the skin is dehydrated, it can appear dull and tired due to the decreased volume of blood flow in the skin.
- You’re not exfoliating: You may be cleansing your face daily, however, adding an exfoliator to your weekly routine 1- 2 times per week will assist your skin in shedding old skin which will then allow for better absorption of your skincare.
- Stress: Stress can cause inflammation in the body, leading to a tired, dull appearance in the skin.
- You’re not moisturising daily: Dullness of the skin is often caused by dryness, which leads to the formation of cracks on the surface of the skin and an accumulation of dead skin cells, resulting in an uneven and lackluster complexion.
- Sun damage: Exposure to UV rays can damage the skin and lead to a dull, tired appearance.
- Poor diet: A diet lacking in essential vitamins and nutrients can lead to dull, tired-looking skin.
- Hormonal changes: Hormonal fluctuations can cause changes in the skin, leading to a dull, tired appearance.
So, if you're ready to say goodbye to dull, tired-looking skin and hello to a bright, radiant complexion, these tips are your ticket to a brighter future:
- Exfoliate regularly: Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells and reveal brighter, smoother skin. We recommend adding the Sc-Rub & Glow Cell Renewal Exfoliating Facial Scrub which also contains Vitamin C for an extra brightening skin kick!
- Use Vitamin C serum: Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can help reduce the appearance of dark spots and improve skin tone. Apply it in the morning for added protection against environmental damage. We recommend the SOS Super Serum Glow Boosting Facial Serum which contains the richest source of Vitamin C from Kakadu Plum and Marine Actives to flood the skin with nourishment and hydration.
- Don't forget the sunscreen - Sunscreen is a must for protecting your skin from harmful UV rays. Use sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every day, even on cloudy days.
- Use a face mask: Face masks can help brighten your skin by removing impurities and promoting cell turnover. We recommend the It's All Bright Golden Gel Recovery Mask With Kakadu Plum which is designed to instantly cool, calm and supercharge skin with skin-brightening Kakadu Plum Vitamin C.
- Hydrate your skin: Drinking plenty of water and using a hydrating serum can help to plump up your skin and make it appear brighter. We recommend the Good Hydrations Hydrating Facial Serum which contains Hyaluronic Acid, Marine Actives & Glycerin to quench skin.
- Get your beauty sleep - A good night's sleep is essential for a healthy-looking skin. Make sure you get at least 7-8 hours of sleep per night to help keep your skin Avoid smoking and alcohol: Both smoking and alcohol dehydrate your skin and can cause wrinkles, dullness and uneven skin tone.
- Use a daily face cream: We recommend introducing a daily Face Cream like Dream Cream Skin Loving Daily Facial Cream to dial up your daily hydration with a surge of face-feeding B3-C-E Vitamins, Hyaluronic Acid, and so much more with this luxurious cream.
Benefits of using Kakadu Plum Vitamin C in your skincare routine:
Kakadu plum, also known as Gubinge or Billygoat Plum, is a fruit native to Australia that is known for its high levels of vitamin C. The vitamin C content in Kakadu Plum is said to be up to 100 times higher than that of an orange. When used in skincare products, Kakadu Plum can provide a number of benefits for the skin, including:
Brightening: The high vitamin C content in Kakadu plum can help to brighten the skin and reduce the appearance of dark spots.
Anti-ageing: Vitamin C is an antioxidant that can help to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals, which can contribute to the signs of aging.
Collagen production: Vitamin C is important for the production of collagen, a protein that gives the skin its structure and elasticity.
Sun protection: The vitamin C in Kakadu plum can also help to protect the skin from sun damage.
Acne: Vitamin C can help to reduce inflammation and redness associated with acne
It is important to note that, like any skincare product, results may vary depending on your skin type and the formulation of the product you are using. It's always best to patch test before using any new product and consult with a dermatologist if you have any concerns.
