Why You Have Dull Skin And How To Get It Glowing

Do you feel like your skin is dull and tired? i want to help you get the glow back!

It’s that ineffable glow that buzzing youth, a full night’s rest, daily meditation, and a routine of  facials.

But getting that elusive glow is really just about pinpointing the root causes of dullness and treating that. There are plenty of contributing factors that cause dull skin. And while some may be outside your control, there are a few skin care and lifestyle steps you can take to help, besides your professional routine care.

Here, some causes for dull skin and glowing recommendations:


Polluted air is harmful to the environment and your skin. Its tiny, toxic particles, like carbon monoxide or nitrogen oxide emissions from cars, not only dirty the surface of your face but block your pores and reduce oxygen.

Your suffocated skin appears dull as a consequence. Polluted air also creates free radicals on the skin, which puts your skin on the fast track to aging, appearing as wrinkles and uneven skin tone.

The way to fix:

With all that uncontrollable pollution landing on your face each day, it’s pertinent you remove make up and wash your face every night before bed. Otherwise, you allow all those harmful, dirty particles to linger on your skin all night.

And the tip i always share with my client:tip is to apply sun protection on a daily basis since UV rays amplify the effects of pollutants.

Overall dehydration

Dehydration seems to be a culprit of so many health-related concerns, including skin issues. Not drinking enough water is a big thing of not having that beautiful, dewy, glowing skin. Dehydration prohibits your skin from performing the most basic and essential functions, such as cell turnover. This results in a buildup of dead cells on the surface, resulting in clogged pores, and dull skin. But sometimes water isn’t enough, and thankfully there are beauty products that can come to the rescue.

The way to help fix it :

Along with drinking enough water, you can reach your daily intake from other beverages and food. Natural skincare products such as the Floral toner, Rich face cream, hydration booster and the lifting serum are also your friend:)

Dead skin cells

The top layer of your skin is dead skin cells, and that’s a good thing. They help protect the other skin cells below. However, sometimes the buildup can get to be too much. The skin constantly sheds dead cells, and a buildup on your face can result in an ashy look that contributes to dullness and highlights fine lines and wrinkles. There’s a very crucial step you need to take if you want to ensure those dead skin cells are sloughed away regularly. Exfoliate!

The way to help fix it :

Exfoliating is necessary for unclogging your pores and removing excess dead skin cells while also preventing pollutants, dirt, and bacteria from layering up. Gently exfoliate your skin once or twice a week.

The relationship between stress and skin health is a lengthy one. Unhealthy levels of stress present themselves in all kinds of ways, from a brief breakout to multiple skin diseases. Over time, chronic stress can lead to a dull complexion. It also causes your cortisol levels to spike, causing inflammation throughout the body.

The way to help fix it :

Work deadlines, family drama, relationship struggles, and trying to fulfill a busy social calendar can take their toll on your well-being. Make it a point to enjoy valuable “me time” regularly, whether that’s going to meditation, enjoying downtime at home, or skipping that networking event for a solo date night.

meditation is my favorite!

Your skin microbiome is out of whack

Like the gut, your skin has its own special ecosystem made up of millions of bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Maintaining a healthy skin microbiome is essential for glowing skin and overall skin health. A well-balanced skin microbiome protects your skin, including your face, from unfriendly organisms while ensuring your skin produces enough nutrients and maintains a balanced pH.

The way to help fix it :

It should come as no surprise that not all skin care products are created equal! Many harsh skin care products strip the skin of its natural pH, so be sure to use products that respect and support your skin, formulated with quality ingredients, for supporting a healthy skin microbiome.

Not getting enough sleep

Lack of sleep can do a number on your skin. It leads to an imbalance of the dermis,  The result is an unhealthy look that appears dull, dry, uneven, and potentially blotchy. As you sleep, your body works to remove dead blood cells, making room for new cells. But with poor sleep, you deprive yourself of that essential cell turnover, robbing yourself of that good morning glow.

The way to help fix it :

First and foremost, try your best to get a good night’s rest. Sleep requirements vary slightly from person to person, but most healthy adults require between seven and nine hours of shut-eye per night. Make good sleep hygiene a priority, such as sleeping in a comfortable bed in a room that’s dark, quiet, and neither too hot nor too cold. You should also try to go to sleep at the same time every night. You can also take advantage of natural products, such as diffusing lavender essential oil, and meditation before sleep to unwind makes miracles, at least for me:)

About the Author:

Pure natural cosmetics is not just a name, for me and many others it became a way of life! All my life I had an affinity to healthy life style. As a dancer and a trainer, i was always looking for the good combination of healthy food and healthy movement. In time I learned that its not only what you eat that matters. Also what you use as cosmetics or medical products is important. The skin is the biggest organ in our body. About 60% of what we put on our skin gets into the blood system and with that to the inner organs. I invest my heart and soul into “Pure natural cosmetics” and the best part is to hear the amazing comments from my client.
