How to Get Rid of Dull Looking Skin

Laying out in the sun with a delicious beverage in hand sounds like everyone’s idea of a perfect summer day, but with all of the dry heat, it can also cause your skin to look a little dull. So, what can you do to combat that dullness and get a dewy looking complexion instead? Let’s take a closer look at a few suggestions.

Wash Your Face Every Night

No matter how much you try to live an organic life free from chemicals, fossil fuels, and other chemicals are all around us, and in the air we breathe. Unless you live in the middle of nowhere where there aren’t any cars or other forms of transportation, you expose your skin to fossil fuels every day. This type of exposure can lead to dull skin. Our recommendation? Wash your face every night before bed. And, if you feel like your skin is extra dirty then try to wash your face twice; an extra little bit of TLC never hurt anyone.

Get a Facial Massage

Stress is another thing that’s hard to escape in this fast-paced world that we live in. All of that stress can cause us to strain our facial muscles, which can make our skin look dull and worn down. During every one of our facials, we will do a gentle facial massage to help increase the blood circulation throughout your face and hopefully brighten your complexion in the process.

Wear Sunscreen

A little bit of vitamin D is right for you and your skin, but too much of it can dry your skin out and make your complexion look dull and heated. Make sure that you are wearing a sunscreen every day; especially if you’re going to be spending extended periods out in the sun)


Too much dead skin can build up and cause uneven skin texture and, you guessed it, dullness. Make sure that you are exfoliating your skin about three times a week with either some exfoliating pads or a scrub.
