11 reasons for dull and dehydrated skin
Ever wonder why some people look good without makeup, whatever their age?
Natural, effortless beauty begins with great skin.
And great skin is sustainable only when it is healthy from the inside.
Maintaining radiance isn’t always easy. Here are some common reasons why your skin is missing that coveted glow.
As your skin matures, its ability to replace surface cells slows down, resulting in a buildup of dead cells on the surface. Because of this buildup, the natural pink tone of your skin is hidden. Your complexion becomes duller, and you lose the naturally rosy skin tone from your youth.
2. UV Damage and Environmental Stressors
The environment can wreak havoc on your skin by inducing oxidative stress with air pollutants, low humidity, and UV exposure. The resultant free radical damage causes the skin to age before its time.
To minimize damage to your skin, we recommend that you actively maintain a healthy overall lifestyle and diet, apply sunscreen, and consume foods that are high in anti-oxidants.
3. Dehydrated skin
Do you spend long periods in air-conditioned or other low-humidity environments? Over time, your skin will lose its surface moisture and become dehydrated. When your skin is dry, it loses blood flow and starts to lose its luster. It becomes dull, and that dullness makes the fine lines and wrinkles in your skin look more prominent.
Hydrated skin = happy skin.
To keep your skin hydrated, ensure that you’re having enough water (~8 glasses a day). And use skin products that are good at moisture retention. We have a product you can try.
Did you know that stress kicks off a series of chemical reactions in the body that limit blood flow to your skin, affects its ability to repair itself, and even aggravates it?
One example is the increase in a chemical called cortisol, which, when in overdrive, increases oil production in your skin glads and leads to clogged pores and acne breakouts.
As if you need any more reasons to keep stress at bay!
5. Poor moisturizing routine
If you neglect your moisturizing routine, the stressors in your day-to-day activities and environments can create cracks in your skin surface that worsen over time, causing dull skin.
Be uncompromising with your moisturizing. Ensure that your moisturizing products contain ingredients like ceramides and hyaluronic acid repair. These ingredients fortify your skin, improve water retention, and fill in cracks — creating a smooth, glowing surface.
6. Poor exfoliation routine
Regular exfoliation removes dead cells from your skin’s outer layer, making it smoother, clearer, and more reflective (read: GLOW).
7. Not removing your makeup and skin products thoroughly
The debris and buildup will clog up those pores. It may seem trivial now, but it can cause significant problems over time!
8. Not getting enough sleep
Sleep enables your skin cells to repair and regenerate.
When you are sleep-deprived, your skin cells cannot perform their duties well. They, too, become tired and lifeless.
To look your best, aim for a minimum of 7 hours of sleep, maybe even 9 if possible.
9. Poor skin circulation
Good skin circulation ensures the optimal amount of oxygen and nutrients are delivered to your skin cells while also removing toxins.
Activities that promote circulation in the skin include exercise and skin massage. These are 2 of the best ways to achieve a healthy and natural glow!
Smoking cigarettes is harmful not only for your lungs but for the production and processing of collagen in your body.
As a result, your skin will start to appear sallow, waxy, and wrinkled over time.
11. Using skin products that are incompatible with your skin type
Overuse or incorrect use of skin products can backfire.
If you have oily skin, avoid over-drying with alcohol astringents — these can end up dehydrating your skin and accentuating fine lines.
If you have dry skin, stop using low-quality moisturizers that barely affect the moisture of your skin. Stop using makeup removers that are not thorough. Stop using serums as soon as you notice that they irritate your skin.
Getting back your radiant skin
You don’t have to suffer from poor skin health. If you want to restore radiance and glow to your skin again, we have a solution for you.
Amaro SkinScience’s 4 steps to luminosity
This facial helps you reverse the damage that causes dull skin by applying a unique blend of skin-boosting infusions.
The infusions are part of our 4 step process to ensure you get your radiance back.
Step 1: Clean Clear Exfoliation
We thoroughly remove debris like dirt, oil, and pollution particles. Then, we exfoliate your skin’s outer layer, removing dead skin cells and restoring smoothness, clarity, and glow to your skin.
Step 2: Deep repair and nourishment
Next, we’ll infuse a customized cocktail of anti-oxidants, ceramides, and pigment suppressing agents into the deep layer of the skin (dermis). The infusion eliminates free radicals, reduces inflammation, and evens out your skin tone. Step 3: Boosting skin circulation
Then we use something called Magnetic Resonance Thermal Therapy to boost your skin’s circulation. It provides a triple-hit combo of localized magnetic flux, heat, and non-mechanical vibration.
Your skin’s oxygen and nutrient uptake will increase significantly.
Your skin’s ability to remove toxins, heal, and grow will also become more robust.
Step 4: Strengthening your skin’s defenses
Finally, we use face masks and serums that are rich in hyaluronic acid, polyglutamic acid, and ceramides to plump up the skin, lock in more moisture and protect against harmful agents in your environment.
