How to avoid a dull and tired complexion and maintain healthy looking skin
If your skin is beginning to look tired and dull with blemishes and you have no glow or brightness, then maybe you need to wash your face with a bit more intensity. Re-energize your skin and add a glow by using a facial scrub to exfoliate your skin. It is vital that you follow a strict and consistent skin care routine.
Exfoliation removes dead skin and cleans out your pores. The longer you exfoliate, the better results you will get. So start exfoliating at least once or twice a week to maintain healthy looking skin. If you don’t regularly exfoliate your skin, dead skin cells will build up, and cause your skin to look dull and will lack radiance. You may also want to start going for microdermabrasion treatments which exfoliate your skin much more deeply than exfoliating at home.
Avoid exposure to environmental factors such as direct sunlight, wind and pollution. Drink plenty of water to keep hydrated and follow a healthy eating routine along with some iron and vitamin supplements. Always ensure that you wash off all traces of makeup before going to bed.
Stress less, avoid oily foods, chocolate, coffee and always get your beauty sleep to avoid tiredness.
Exercise regularly to boost your metabolism and blood circulation.
Beauty Tips for Dull and Tired Complexions
- Prior to applying any makeup, ensure that your face is very well moisturised. This will protect your skin and also allow the makeup look much more natural and will blend well with your skin.
- Apply liquid foundation rather than loose powder foundation. If you do require powder as well as the foundation, apply only enough to even out your make-up flaws, otherwise, avoid it. For evening make-up, applying a touch of bronze to add a natural brightness to your complexion.
- Use a face brightening mask at least once a week to brighten up your complexion. If you prefer a natural remedy to brighten up your complexion, try applying honey heated in the microwave for 5 to 10 seconds. Apply the honey to your face and leave it on for 15 to 30 minutes. How long you wish to leave it on for depends on your desired brightness.
