Dull Dry Skin
Dull skin and dry skin often go hand-in-hand, and is predominantly caused by a lack of hydration to the skin.
These conditions can affect both the body and the face, with dryness presenting over the entire body or just in localised patches. There may be medical reasons for the skin becoming dry, such as Eczema or Psoriasis, but it is a concern that can affect anybody at any time.
Dry skin can be a common concern related to the process of ageing, as the functioning of the body becomes less effective as we get older. Collagen is a substance that is naturally present in the skin, with one of its jobs being to help aid moisturisation of the skin.
Due to the decline in the production of this product (a direct result of ageing), dead skin cells can start to build up, contributing to the skin’s appearance becoming dull.
Certain lifestyle activities such as smoking, consuming alcohol, eating a poor diet and neglecting to take regular exercise can all affect the hydration of the skin and the body as a whole. It is important to maintain a healthy level of hydration, drinking plenty of fluids every day, as a well hydrated body means well hydrated skin.
For healthy, glowing skin, that is youthfully moist and supple, daily cleansing and exfoliation is required. However, when using creams to help with moisturising, it is important not to overdo it and cause a counterintuitive effect.
