We offer a number of solutions to address the root causes of dull skin and restore a beautiful, healthy glow. Schedule a consultation to determine which treatment, or combination of treatments, is right for you.
CAUSES OF DULL SKIN
Having dull skin is often characterized by a pale and rough complexion devoid of the natural luminosity and rosy glow on the cheeks often associated with good health, beauty, and youth. It can be caused by several contributing factors, such as:
Excessive Stress - Can give a surge in cortisol, which affects blood flow to the skin and impede skin repair.
Dehydration - Which decreases blood flow to the skin, making you look pale and sick.
Environment - Air pollutants, low humidity, and harsh winds can wreak havoc on the skin.
Sun Damage - Years of unprotected exposure to harmful UV rays can cause skin roughness, dullness, imperfections, and accelerate skin aging.
Poor Lifestyle Habits - Smoking, unhealthy way of eating, and sleep deprivation can all mess up skin health.
Lack of Good Skincare Habits - Neglecting to exfoliate, hydrate, and moisturize the skin as needed can be a recipe for dull skin.
Aging - In young people, skin cells turn over every 28 days. By the time one reaches age 40, cellular turnover has slowed to every 40 days. As dead skin cells build-up, the skin can no longer reflect light effectively, thus resulting in dullness and uneven skin tone and texture.
WHAT LIFESTYLE CHANGES CAN I MAKE TO HELP GIVE MY SKIN A LUMINOUS GLOW?
Along with optimising your skincare routine, our specialist may recommend making lifestyle changes that promote skin health and beauty:
Always protect yourself from the sun; do not tan
Avoid smoking and inhaling secondhand smoke
Wear sunglasses to minimise the development of wrinkles and pigmentation around your eyes
Avoid sleeping on your side as the pressure can create creases in your skin
Get a good night’s sleep
Eat a balanced, nutritious diet

CLINICAL PEELS - Chemical peels or clinical peels are the easiest and most cost-effective form of skin rejuvenation. It involves exfoliating layers of dark, dry, and dull skin and revealing a plump and more youthful skin underneath.

You can count on continuous anti-ageing and skin-enhancing benefits months post-treatment.

How To know If Your Skin Is Dull and How Can You Brighten Your Skin?
Dull skin is commonly characterized as skin that lacks radiance and appears flat or lackluster. Unlike radiant skin which is more translucent and reflects light evenly, dull skin often has an uneven skin tone or texture which causes light to reflect less evenly.
f your skin looks lackluster or dull, take these steps to help boost your radiance:
Exfoliate skin regularly to help remove dead skin, smooth texture and stimulate skin’s renewal process
Add a hydrating moisturizer rich with humectants and emollients
Apply a light serum to give skin an instant glow such as a Vitamin C to help even skin tone, diminish dark spots and boost radiance.
I Have A Major Event Coming Up And I Want To Have Beautiful Glowing Skin! Is There Anything That Can Be Done Quickly?
Yes! We have several clinical peel treatments available that will bring back your glow immediately without downtime. Contact us to schedule a consultation.
How To Treat Dull Skin?
If your skin is very dry, exfoliation is an important step in your routine but requires a little extra care. For very dry skin types, choose a formula with ingredients like Glycolic or Lactic Acids rather than using a scrub or cleanser that physically exfoliates skin as these types of exfoliants can irritate dry skin and cause it to feel even drier.
While dull skin is often related to dryness, oily skin types also appear dull. If your skin has excess shine but still lacks radiance, take care to avoid soaps or formulas that may overly dry skin.
What Skincare Ingredients Can Help Correct Dull Skin?
Exfoliants such as AHAs and BHAs (alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids) are essential at removing dead skin cells from the skin’s surface. Some examples include: glycolic acid, lactic acid, and salicylic acid. Retinol helps to increase cellular turnover and is excellent as a night-time treatment. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that has multiple skin benefits including brightening and firming. A consultation with one of our skin experts will help you determine which products would be most beneficial to you.
How To Care for Dull Skin?
Moving between cold, dry winter weather outside and heated indoor environments can have a big impact on skin’s moisture levels and lead to dullness and dry fine lines. If you’re in a cold environment, switch to a richer daily facial moisturizer to help lock in hydration and add a serum daily.
In the summer, skin is often exposed to a wide range of external aggressors. In addition to the sun, the beach, salt in ocean water and chlorine can all impact skin’s balance. If you are in a humid environment, you may experience excess oil but in a dry, desert climate you may notice that skin becomes rougher and has an uneven texture, avoid skipping your moisturizer or other steps in your routine and apply a daily sunscreen and pollution protection to help defend skin from external aggressors
I Have Dull Skin And Wrinkles. Can I Safely Combine Different Treatments?
Absolutely! Most of our treatments are compatible with one another, and have minimal to no-downtime. In fact, very often it is a combination of treatments that will yield the best results, especially when there are multiple signs of aging present.
