Without moisture, you could experience dehydrated dull skin which makes fine lines and wrinkles look even more visible. Skin also naturally sheds away dead skin cells, and when these dead skin cells start to build up, it can block the fresh, new skin underneath from shining through. When these dead skin cells start to accumulate, it blocks the fresh, healthy skin underneath from surfacing. Chronic stress is another cause of dull skin. Stress leads to increased cortisol in the body and skin that contributes to an uneven, dull complexion.
After washing your face, moisturize your skin with products that lock in moisture and have antioxidant properties. Skin moisturizing is a must whether your skin type is oily skin or dry skin. You simply must pick the right product that suits you. Avoid over-exfoliation and wear sunscreen daily. Lastly, eat a healthy diet and treat yourself with some weekly HPPY Skin face masks to help with dark spots. Pick a face mask for your skin care that's safe, effective, non-toxic and contains hydrating ingredients such as our Hydrating Mask or Clarity Mask.
Too much sun exposure speeds up the production of melanin, a natural pigment that gives skin its color. If the skin is constantly exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light, it could result in hyperpigmentation or dark spots and dull skin when melanin is clumped or is produced in high concentrations. Hormonal changes, acne scars, and cosmetic skin irritation also lead to dark spots and uneven skin tone.
Wear sunscreen daily and, as much as possible, avoid the sun at its most intense from 10am to 2pm. A facial mask such as our Hydrating and Clarity masks is one of the easiest and preferred ways to promote glowing skin free from dark spots. Choose your facial masks that contain vitamin C and other effective ingredients like kale, spirulina, or cucumber.
