Demanding jobs, a never-ending to-do list and a lack of downtime are pretty much the norm in our daily lives. From unhealthy lifestyle choices to environmental aggressors, these can take their toll on your mind and body, as well as your skin.
Tired skin is just what it sounds like: it gives you the appearance of dull, dry and sallow-looking skin.
Without addressing the signs of tired and troubled skin, this can hinder your skin’s ability to repair itself and leave your skin feeling more parched than usual. If your skin is no longer responding to your daily skincare regime, chances are your skin is also fatigued.
Aside from getting plenty of sleep and eating the right foods, here’s how you can let your tired, lifeless skin bounce back.
Wear SPF daily
The importance of protecting your skin from the sun is one thing you cannot overlook – most people may not realise that this is the key to anti-ageing.
With adequate SPF protection, your skin can be better protected against the harmful UV rays that cause sun spots, wrinkles, fine lines and premature ageing. Sun damage can also quickly cause the skin to look dull and depleted. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen for protection against exposure to UVA and UVB rays.
Add antioxidant protection
In addition to UV rays, your skin comes into contact with pollution on a daily basis. These external aggressors bring about free radical damage that can lead to signs of ageing, discolouration and dullness.
Your skin cells contain mitochondria, which powers up the cellular energy battery used to help in collagen production and fight against free radical damage in your skin. Factors like age, lack of sleep and environmental stressors can cause your skin to slow down that process.
Known for their anti-inflammatory and anti-aging benefits, antioxidants work by protecting the skin from oxidative stress due to free radicals. Look for skincare products that contain energy-boosting ingredients like vitamin C, niacinamide, CoQ10 and retinol to help your skin repair itself and revitalise dull-looking complexion.
Stay hydrated at night
Dull skin can also be improved by increasing the moisture levels in your skin. Aside from drinking plenty of water, apply a light moisturiser in the morning to keep the skin balanced and prevent dehydration.
Once the sun sets, night creams and sleeping masks are one of the best ways to hydrate your skin.
Turn it into a relaxing bedtime ritual with the use of a facial roller after application to gently massage the face and stimulate the lymphatic system. This can also help to decrease puffiness, remove toxins and ease muscle tension to improve your skin’s glow.
