How To Wake Up Dull Skin

how to wake up dull skin

1. Exfoliate

Dry, flaky skin as well as remnants of makeup and SPF can build up over time, making skin appear dull. By exfoliatng 1-2x a week, you can slough off dead skin and impurities to reveal a brighter, more luminous complexion. Use a gentle exfoliant with natural abrasives or fruit enzymes to slough off dead skin and reveal a smooth, glowing complexion. Our Cell Renewing Microfoliant, $45 contains both for an effective exfoliation for even the most sensitive skin.

2. Tone up

Cleansing is an essential skincare step, but it can cause a pH imbalance that either makes skin too alkaline (very dry and tight) or too acidic (very oily). Use a toner after cleansing to restore pH balance while rejuvenating the skin for a healthy glow. We recommend the Rosewater infused Clarifying Toner, $35.

3. Moisture, moisture, moisture

We can’t say it enough - moisture is the key to a youthful, glowing complexion. Prep for makeup with a lightweight moisturizer with a built-in SPF (like the Daily Moisture SPF 30 Concentrate, $100) and apply a richer, more concentrated cream before bed (Night Replenishment Concentrate, $115) to wake up with smooth, radiant skin.
