Dull/Dry Skin

Dry skin can often take on a dull appearance.

Caused by the skin lacking in moisture, some medical conditions can be the reason for this concern (such as Eczema and Psoriasis), but small patches in localised areas can be symptoms that anybody can develop at any time in their life.

A common condition that can affect the face, dry skin can occur as part of the ageing process. As we get older, the body doesn’t function as well as it used to, with the ability to hydrate being one aspect that sees a negative impact. As a result, dead skin cells can start to accumulate and cause the skin to become dull in appearance.

Smoking, alcohol consumption, poor diet and a lack of regular exercise are all lifestyle choices that can also impact negatively on the hydration of the skin, and we all know the importance of drinking plenty of water each and every day. It stands to reason that if our body is dehydrated, then so is the skin. 

Maintaining regular cleansing and exfoliation can help to remove the unhealthy skin cells, allowing for a healthy complexion that stays moist, supple and youthful looking. Many people apply a daily moisturiser as part of their skincare regime, but it is important to note that overuse can be counter-productive. 

Effective treatments that can be used to treat dull / dry skin include Profhilo and Obagi skincare, boosting the skin’s hydration levels to produce a complexion that is glowing and radiant
