BEST CLEANSERS FOR DULL SKIN
Look for brightening cleansers that combine AHAs and BHAs but take care not to scrub or tug at the skin with physical exfoliating cleansers or harsh flannels.
BEST EXFOLIATORS FOR DULL SKIN
Boost radiance with skin-sloughing exfoliants, such as AHA and BHA acids, that work together to gently break the bonds that allow dead skin cells to remain on the surface.
BEST SERUMS FOR DULL SKIN
Serums are made up of highly concentrated formulas with active ingredients that can penetrate the skin on a deeper level to really target skin concerns. Look for formulas that work to reduce pigmentation and boost luminosity.
BEST MOISTURISERS FOR DULL SKIN
Look for everyday moisturisers with hydrating hyaluronic acid and brightening vitamin C. Vitamin C not only helps to reduce pigmentation and dark spots but also helps to stimulate collagen production for skin that is plumped and juicy.
BEST TREATMENTS FOR DULL SKIN
If you’re really suffering from dullness, a once-a-week targeted treatment can help boost your daily routine. A leave-on peel has more time to activate and target skin concerns meaning you’ll be able to notice instant results. Look for overnight formulas if you really want to make a change.
WHAT IS DULL SKIN?
When we say skin looks dull, we’re referring to that grey, ashy tone complexions can adopt when dead cells cling to the surface, preventing light reflection. The ageing process and unhealthy lifestyle habits can also contribute to lacklustre skin. Read on for top tips on skincare for dull skin and the best products to brighten dull skin.
WHAT CAUSES DULL SKIN?
Dullness occurs when the surface layer of the skin is unable to reflect light. This happens when dead skin cells are not removed properly, and so build up and stick to the surface. Lack of sleep, stress, dehydration, and dry skin can also be why skin looks dull.
HOW TO TREAT DULL SKIN?
Exfoliation, either physical or chemical, is the best dull skin treatment and secret to glowy skin. This process gently removes the dead cells from the skin’s surface, allowing skincare for dull skin to penetrate more easily and for light to reflect and achieve that much talked about ‘lit-from-within’ glow.

A FINAL NOTE ON DULL SKIN
When it comes to boosting radiance, it’s all about skin-sloughing exfoliants, such as AHA and BHA acids, that work together to gently break the bonds that allow dead skin cells to remain on the surface. Once the skin is clean and decongested, skincare can penetrate and work more effectively. Meaning that your vitamin C boosting serums, we love Caudalie Radiance Serum, and skin plumping moisturisers, try Sunday Riley’s C.E.O. Vitamin C Rich Hydration Cream, can get to work to brighten and smooth.
