Dull skin is often described as skin that has lost its brightness and looks grey in appearance. As we age, this can become a common skin complaint.
When we are young, our skin sheds its cells every 30 days. However, as we get older this extends up to every 60 days. The natural decrease in cell turnover can cause a build-up of dead skin cells and a dull looking complexion.
Apart from the natural ageing process, other factors such as exposure to the sun and certain lifestyle choices can lead to tired, dull skin. In order to keep the skin bright and healthy, it is important to protect the skin from damage whilst also encouraging cell turnover. Wearing an SPF on a daily basis, such as Weston Beauty Clinic moisturising cream with SPF can defend against harmful UV rays which age the skin all year round. Using an exfoliator which contains glycolic acid such as dermaquest exfoliating cleanser will gently help slough dead skin cells away to reveal fresh, clear skin.
At Weston Beauty Clinic, we offer a number of specialised treatments and an expert product range to help clear dull skin. Our dermaquest sweet chill facials are amazing to channel energy into sluggish skin.
TREATMENTS TO BRIGHTEN DULL SKIN
At Weston Beauty Clinic we use several techniques to get rid of dull skin. At your consultation your expert practitioner will advise you of the best option for your individual skin and budget.
We offer a number of skin peels that are designed to brighten and refresh dull skin. The treatment involves applying a non toxic chemical to the skin to encourage cell turnover and the ex-foliation process. As dead skin cells are removed, skin appears clearer and more radiant. Many of the lighter skin peels are relatively pain free, such as our obagi blue radiance peel with the deeper ones such as the VI Peel feeling like an episode of sunburn.
