It’s quite common to feel that your skin is looking dull or tired – that it has lost its brightness and looks grey in appearance. This can be related to ageing, but also lifestyle factors such diet, poor skincare, and even pollution.

With the help of our expert clinicians, you can do something about dull or tired skin and feel rejuvenated and proud to face the world.

What is dull skin?

Dehydrated or dull skin is very different from dry skin; however, these two are commonly confused. They have similar symptoms, but they have very different causes. Dehydration results from lack of water in the skin, but dry skin results from inadequate levels of oils, which are normally produced in the sebaceous glands.

What causes dull skin?

The most common cause of dull skin is ageing. However, it can be triggered by diet, lack of water content in your skincare, some medications, smoking, excessive alcohol or caffeine consumption. It can also be caused by poor skincare regimes, with excessive exfoliation and insufficient sun protection. Extreme weather conditions and environmental factors like pollution can also cause damage to the skin, with people in cities exhibiting signs earlier in life.

What does dull skin look like?

People with dull skin can appear grey – some clients describe it as looking translucent and tired. The skin loses its volume.

Tips for dealing with dull skin
