What is dull skin?
Dull skin is a really common skin concern for many people, but is one that can be treated easily. There are various factors that can lead to dull skin including a build up of dead skin cells, dehydration, aging. As the body is unable to produce vitamin C itself, it’s important to include it in our diet and use products that contain it too. This way, you can treat dull skin effectively and the largest organ in the body, the sun, can enjoy the benefits of this powerhouse ingredient.
Clinical studies have shown that when vitamin C is used as part of a daily skincare routine over a 12 week period, it can reduce the visible appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This is because vitamin C can promote the production of collagen in the skin.
Vitamin C also has powerful skin brightening benefits, helping to even out the skin tone, reducing the appearance of sun spots and age spots too. It can neutralise free radicals and prevent damage to the skin, helping your body to repair damaged skin cells. An increase in cellular turnover leads to brighter, more radiant skin.
Along with these skincare benefits, vitamin C can also be used to hydrate the skin and having plump, hydrated skin helps to eliminate any dullness you might have had. Dehydrated skin can lead to flakiness which can cause the skin to look dull and fatigued. If you haven’t added vitamin C to your skincare routine yet, here are some key products from the best-selling VITAL C range that you can start using now.
Dull skin pick-me-up
To treat dull skin and give it an instant pick-me-up, try the VITAL C hydrating enzyme masque. It works in minutes to give a radiant, healthy looking glow. By working to gently dissolve any skin build up with fruit enzyme exfoliants, it reveals brighter, more even-toned skin. Antioxidants and vitamins nourish and hydrate the skin, leaving it smooth and radiant.
Hydrate dull skin
If your skin’s dullness is caused by dehydration, why not give it a boost with the VITAL C hydrating water burst. When applied to the skin, it transforms from a gel into tiny water droplets, flooding the skin with hydration. Along with hyaluronic acid, it also contains antioxidants and vitamins, helping the skin to appear brighter, more refreshed and radiant.
Reduce the signs of aging
The VITAL C hydrating A C E Serum is a super concentrated essence, giving the skin an influx of vitamins A, C and E. It also has a blend of plant antioxidants to help reduce the visible signs of aging. Fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, while bearberry extract brightens the skin’s appearance. The skin’s collagen and elastin is supported thanks to a complex of five amino acids.
