Dull Skin

Dull skin is a common complaint! Dullness refers to the skin's inability to reflect light properly. This reflection is what gives skin It’s radiance. When skin is dull it can look uneven, ashy, lacklustre, patchy, and dry. But luckily its an easy thing to fix and we can give skin back that luminous ‘glow!’ Dull skin can be due to a number of factors

Dull Skin Treatments

A remedy may be as simple as exfoliating off dead skin cells to produce brighter skin. This can be done with chemical exfoliating skin care that contain hydroxy acids. It could also be done with a series of chemical peels to give the skin back some health and vitality.
Fixing any underling inflammation such as acne is vital. This can be done with medical treatments both topically or systemically. Controlling oil flow is also important. This can be treated with a combination of beta hydroxy acids that penetrate the grease gland to reduce oil flow either in a serum formulation or for a more potent hit, a skin enzyme treatment.
