This is how you boost dull, tired skin

Zombie style
Looking like a zombie this Halloween might be your goal, but if that’s not the case and you want to get rid of your pale, tired skin, continue reading. That radiant sun-kissed summer tan is now hard to find, you feel stressed and you spend too many hours in front of a screen. Here are the ingredients for a cocktail that will make your skin no longer look dull and tired. The key to healthy, glowing and resilient skin is a combination of exfoliation and hydration.

Boost 1: this is how you tackle dull skin
Your skin naturally sheds dead cells on a regular basis to make room for new cells. But sometimes the dead skin cells don't shed like they should. Instead, they build up a film on the surface of your skin, resulting in dry, dull, flaky and blotchy skin. Due to this, the skin gets an uneven complexion and texture and therefore reflects the light less evenly, because there is no glow. The first step for a more even skin and smoother texture is to remove the dead skin cells that accumulate on the skin's surface. You can do this with alpha hydroxy acid (AHA or glycolic acid) or a facial scrub. When using these, you also immediately tackle fine lines. Exfoliating regularly can increase cell turnover and stimulate collagen production. So, win-win. With the Faace Dull Faace Cleanser you can gently remove those dead skin cells. By using this product regularly, you will get that healthy glow back on your skin. Suki's BrightCycle Resurfacing Enzyme Peel also quickly ensures smooth and radiant skin.

Boost 2: this is how you tackle tired skin
Smooth skin without dead skin cells can absorb and retain the skincare that is applied better. Choose for energising ingredients such as vitamin C, caffeine and panax ginseng for an energy boost to your skin. These antioxidants fight free radicals and will leave your skin looking fresh and awake. Another key ingredient is hyaluronic acid which temporarily binds water in the superficial layers of the skin. This makes your skin look plump and less lifeless. Both Vitamin C and caffeine can be found in the Tired Faace Mask from Faace. Panax ginseng can be found, for example, in the Collagen Moisturizer from Baebody. With the Hyaluronic Facial Serum from Baebody you will complete your skin care.

Boost 3: extra tips for a fresh look

  • Use cold or lukewarm water instead of hot water. This stimulates blood circulation in a healthy way without drying out your skin. Also choose a cleansing product without soap so that your skin is not stripped of its natural and protective oils.
  • A mask is your new BFF. Treating yourself to a weekly moisturizing face mask is an excellent tool for glowing skin. We already mentioned the Tired Face Mask from Faace, but the John Masters Organics Overnight Facial Mask with Pomegranate & Moroccan Rose also provides radiant skin.
  • Just a minute with a DIY facial massage can make your skin look less tired. For example, use an oil such as the Suki MenoCycle Reviving Facial Oil and a gua sha stone such as the Aloha Gua Sha Rose Quartz from Namaka. This stimulates blood circulation, brings oxygen to your skin cells and gives you an instant glow.
