Doctors for How to remove dullness from face

Jenny Leidy, MD and PhD, a dermatologist in Boulder, Colo., says that people use too many products to get rid of dark spots, which is the biggest mistake in skincare. Many people experiment with new products on their faces without thinking, which can at times harm the skin instead of benefit it.

Beautiful skin requires a simple cleanser, sunscreen, moisturizer and a retinoid or retinol. The simpler your skincare routine is, the easier it will be for you to maintain glowing and healthy skin.

Following are some ways to remove the dullness from the face:

Exfoliation is essential

When dead skin cells build up on the outer layers of the skin, it can cause the skin to become dull, dry and flaky and it can also clog the pores of the skin. Regular exfoliation can prevent this from happening. Exfoliation also helps smoothen your skin, makes it glow and even gives colour to it. Regular exfoliation can stimulate collagen production. Exfoliation can be done once or twice a week, depending on your skin’s needs.

Add Serum

Face serums are high in ingredients that help brighten your skin, boost hydration, and reduce signs of ageing. Serums get absorbed quickly into the skin, so they can be applied once or twice a day after cleansing. The serum contains ingredients like Vitamin C, Vitamin B3 (niacinamide), ferulic acid and resveratrol, which are effective with antioxidants. Vitamin C also helps in reducing hyperpigmentation or dark spots, which causes your skin to fade over time.

Take retinoids

Retinoids (a yellow compound found in green and yellow vegetables, egg yolks and fish liver oil, also known as vitamin A) have been shown to increase collagen levels and normalize skin cell turnover. Retinoids help exfoliate old skin cells and bring new fresh skin cells to the surface. They also make the top layer of cells smooth and thin. This gives a more natural glow to the skin.
