Dull Tired Face

About Dull Tired Face :

We work long hours making it difficult to manage a personal life, are sleep deprived, and don’t have time to exercise, all while living in a polluted and stress-filled environment. These conditions deplete energy from the body and take their toll our skin too, leaving it dull and lacklustre.


Causes :

  • Build up of dead skin cells - Dryness and lack of proper exfoliation both contribute to skin cell debris.

  • Exhaustion - Trying to do too much in too little time is taxing both physically and emotionally.

  • Lack of sleep - For most people, an average of at least eight hours sleep a night is what the body’s immune system needs to fortify itself. Anything less than that and we suffer, whether we’re aware of it or not.

  • Stress 

  • Poor nutrition - When nutrition is good, it enhances body function and maintains steady blood sugar levels throughout the day. When it’s bad, it depletes the system and makes for destructive energy spikes and plunges.

  • Glycation - This naturally occurring phenomenon, when a sugar molecule bonds with a protein molecule (Collagen). It becomes weak, brittle or even fractured, making it extremely vulnerable to a free-radical attack. In addition to a diet low in sugar, the use of treatment creams rich in polyphenols will help minimise the glycation process.


Aggravating factors :

  • Stress

  • Smoking

  • Sun Damage


Presentation :

  • Fine lines

  • Coarse wrinkles

  • Loss of elasticity

  • Rough, scaly texture

  • Dry, leathery appearance

  • Broken capillaries


DULL TIRED FACE: Tips to Manage

  • Proper daily skincare regimen with:

  1. Energising ingredients to bring new energy and radiance to the skin.

  2. Exfoliants (glycolic acid, salicylic acid) to do clear away dead skin cells.

  3. Antioxidants (Vitamin C, green tea, grape seed extract) to neutralise aging free radicals.


  • Environmental protection by daily use of full-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen and avoid direct sunlight between the hours of 10 and 2.

  • Don’t smoke, Instead of having oxy-generated blood delivered to the surface of the skin, they're getting poisons and oxidants.

  • Proper diet and good nutrition, supplement may be needed for protection from the inside:

  1. B-complex Vitamins to help fuel the body and increase circulation when energy dips.-

  2. Ginkgo biloba, L-Carnitine and Co-Q10 for instant invigoration to boost overall energy.

  3. Vitamin A to minimise production of excess pore-clogging skin cells.

  4. B-complex vitamins to encourage tissue repair.

  5. Zinc to aid cell repair and reduce inflammation.


  • Drink plenty of water to flush toxins from the body, help renew tissue, and fight fatigue. 

  • Get a proper full eight hour sleep

  • Stress-relieving exercise 

  • Professional care: Regular peels by a trained dermatologist can help boost circulation and tone to dull and tired skin.
