There days when you wake up with flawless skin and then there are times when your skin feels anything but. Dry, stretchy, rough, lifeless are some adjectives that come to mind. What you’re suffering from is dull skin, a common complaint for many. Dullness is caused by the build-up of dead skin cells that hide your skin’s natural glow and radiance.

Read on to find the perfect skin care routine to revive dull skin

1. Exfoliate

Use a gentle exfoliator at least twice a week. The exfoliator will scrub off dead skin cells relieving new radiant skin underneath.  Exfoliation is important as a build-up of dead cells causes clogged pores, uneven skin tone and deeper wrinkles.

Neutrogena Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub, Dermalogica Skin Prep Scrub, Just Herbs Apricot Sparkle Invigorating Skin Radiance Scrub

2. Cleanser

A facial cleanser will help get rid of daily pollutants and makeup. It also cleanses the skin, allowing other products to penetrate skin’s layers to work their magic. Use a gentle face cleanser daily at least twice a day, more often if you have oily skin.

The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Mild Cleansing Water, Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, Neutrogena Liquid Face Cleanser

3. Moisturizer

Use a moisturizer daily. It balances your skin’s moisture and hydration levels so that it feels plump, healthy and smooth. Choose a skin moisturizer infused with SPF so that it doubles up as a sunscreen as well and wards off skin darkening.

The Body Shop Vitamin-E Moisture Cream, Plum Green Tea Mattifying Moisturizer, Forest Essentials Soundarya Radiance Cream With 24K Gold And SPF25

4. Serum

Skin serum works best during the night. Apply the skin serum at least ten minutes before you sleep. This will allow the serum to get fully absorbed into the skin for best results. For deeper hydration you may want to layer it with a night cream.
