Which lotion should one adopt when dealing with dull skin?

Ashen complexion, tired appearance... The skin tone can become dull. What solution should be adopted to restore its radiance? Dull complexion can affect all skin types (normal, combination or even oily), regardless of the season. Revive your complexion by using a suitable lotion. Discover all our advice.

What are the causes of dull skin?

Dull skin is characterised by a greyish complexion and a lack of uniformity, giving the impression of a tired appearance. Pollution, lack of sleep, inappropriate care... There are many causes behind a dull complexion. Pollution is one of the main factors of a dull complexion. Indeed, particles settle on the skin, mix with excess sebum and clog the pores. The skin can no longer breathe properly and struggles to absorb nutrients.

Furthermore, skin that is not properly cleansed will end up with an accumulation of dead cells on the surface, resulting in a dull complexion.

Lack of sleep is another factor that can lead to a dull complexion. During the night, cellular renewal and repair are at their peak. Therefore, a lack of sleep disrupts this process and is the cause of a dull complexion.

Which lotion to combat a dull complexion?

To regain a radiant complexion, do not overlook the step of skin cleansing. Indeed, cleansing removes impurities found on the skin's surface, thus revealing an even complexion. Moreover, a properly cleansed skin breathes and is able to absorb the care you provide it with.

After removing makeup and cleansing, use a toning lotion to rebalance your skin's pH and revive its complexion. The brand Typology offers a lotion enriched with vitamin C and lemon verbena water to brighten the complexion and reduce pigmentation spots.

Rich in antioxidants, Vitamin C actively combats free radicals generated by pollution or sun exposure. It also stimulates the production of keratinocytes, whose role is to protect the skin and enhance its elasticity. On the other hand, lemon verbena water refines the skin's texture and restores radiance to the complexion. It is known for its toning and softening properties.

Apply this lotion all over your face using a cotton pad, morning and evening, before your serum or face cream.

Exfoliating to combat dull complexion

To rejuvenate the complexion, it is also necessary to exfoliate the skin once a week to remove dead cells and promote cellular renewal.

The glycolic acid exfoliating toner from Typology serves to exfoliate the skin, tighten pores, and reduce blackheads. Known for its exfoliating action, glycolic acid also possesses astringent properties. It thus operates on several levels by eliminating dead skin cells and deeply cleansing the pores. The removal of dead cells stimulates cellular renewal as well as the synthesis of hyaluronic acid, which is essential for skin hydration. Moreover, this exfoliating toner also contains lemongrass hydrosol, known for its purifying effect on the skin.
