We all dream of having skin that looks radiant every day, but it’s not always easy to achieve. One thing is for sure though – nobody wants to have dull skin. Unfortunately, due to a number of different reasons, a lot of women are faced with a dreary and unhealthy looking complexion. In fact, it’s one of the biggest skin complaints for women.
If you’re skin looks more drab than fab – it’s time to make a change. We think the first step is identifying what could be causing your skin problems.
Here at some potential reasons why your skin might be lacking the ‘glow’ you want.
Washing Your Face With Makeup Remover Wipes
Makeup remover wipes are perfect for what they are named for: taking off your makeup. However, they shouldn’t be used as substitute for washing your face in general. When you use them to take off your makeup, you should also be washing your face with warm water and a cleanser afterwards. Not only do they just spread everything around your face – the ingredients also dry out your skin.
Eating a Terrible Diet
Is your diet more carbs than veg? Do you drink too much sugary drinks and not enough water? Is chocolate your main go to when feeling rubbish? If you’ve answered yes to one of more of these, it could actually be the reason for why you can’t shift the dull look from your skin. It’s important to eat a balanced diet – one that includes vegetables, fruit and protein. These types of food will keep your skin looking nourished and therefore a lot more healthy and vibrant!
Too Much Sun Exposure
Its winter but that doesn’t stop people from venturing out in the rain and the cold to their nearest sunbed shop. We know we don’t have to lecture you on the dangers of sun beds – the fact that they expose you to 15 times more ultraviolet radiation than you get whilst out in the sun. You all know the dangers on your health but do you know that it’s also really bad for your skin? It can dry out your skin, leaving it looking and feeling dull. Stick to the fake kind for a safe alternative.
Improper Skincare Routine
It’s important for everyone to have a good skincare routine in place, but especially for those who are plagued with skincare issues. Not taking care of your skin is the reason for why it often looks dull and tired – it’s important to regularly cleanse your skin with the best possible products. Not using skincare products, such as moisturiser, will also lead to other frustrating problems like spots and wrinkles.
