How to Improve Dull-Looking Skin

Pretty much every one of us wants to have that dewy, fresh-faced glow. However, for one reason or another, many people look in the mirror and see dull, dry skin instead. While you may use various serums and highlighters to combat this and try to achieve your desired look, you don’t have to pack-on the products to do so.

In fact, there are several avenues you can take to help improve dull-looking skin and give off a perfect glow.

Improving the Appearance of Dull-Looking Skin

Exfoliate Regularly

When dead skin and built-up products remain on your face, it can cause your skin to appear dull and tired. Exfoliate once or twice a week using gentle products to remove products and dead skin without being too harsh — ingredients matter here.

Exfoliants that contain alpha hydroxy acid can properly get the job done, while products that contain isopropyl ingredients can dry your skin out, causing continued dullness.

Stay Hydrated

As mentioned, when your skin is dry, it can give you a tired, lackluster appearance. When you drink enough water each day, your skin gets the hydration it needs to look and feel supple and bright.

Consider Professional Treatments

In some cases, at-home skincare simply doesn’t work and all your efforts to get glowing skin. If that’s the case, there are several professional-grade treatments that may help.

Facials and Peels

Certain types of facials can help hydrate your skin, resulting in a natural glow, while chemical and enzyme peels can work to remove dead skin and encourage skin renewal for a brighter appearance.


Using state-of-the-art laser technology, photofacials can address discoloration, hyperpigmentation, and dullness.

PRP Therapy

This treatment uses your own platelets to increase collagen production for a brighter, more even skin tone.
