Dull or dry skin refers to skin that lacks radiance, moisture, and a healthy glow. It often appears rough, flaky, and may feel tight or uncomfortable.

what causes dull / dry skin?

Lack of Moisture

Dry skin occurs when the skin’s natural moisture barrier is compromised, leading to dehydration and loss of hydration. Factors such as cold weather, low humidity, harsh cleansers, and hot showers can strip the skin of its natural oils, resulting in dryness.


As we age, the skin’s ability to retain moisture decreases, leading to dryness, fine lines, and a dull complexion. Additionally, cell turnover slows down, causing dead skin cells to accumulate on the skin’s surface, further contributing to dullness.

Environmental Factors

Exposure to environmental pollutants, UV radiation from the sun, and free radicals can damage the skin’s protective barrier, leading to moisture loss, inflammation, and premature aging.

Unhealthy Lifestyle Habits

Poor dietary choices, inadequate hydration, excessive alcohol consumption, smoking, and lack of sleep can all affect skin health and contribute to dullness and dryness.

Overuse of Harsh Products

Using skincare products that contain harsh ingredients, such as alcohol, fragrances, or sulfates, can strip the skin of its natural oils and disrupt the skin’s moisture barrier, leading to dryness and irritation.

How can dull / dry skin be effectively treated?


Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your body and skin hydrated from the inside out.


Use a hydrating moisturizer formulated for your skin type to replenish moisture and strengthen the skin’s barrier function. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, ceramides, and natural oils.

Protect from the Sun

Apply sunscreen with broad-spectrum protection and an SPF of 30 or higher daily to protect your skin from UV damage and prevent premature aging.

Gentle Cleansing

Use a gentle, sulfate-free cleanser to cleanse your skin without stripping away its natural oils. Avoid hot water and long showers, as these can further dehydrate the skin.


Incorporate exfoliation into your skincare routine to remove dead skin cells and reveal smoother, brighter skin underneath. Choose gentle exfoliants, such as alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) or beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), and avoid over-exfoliating, which can irritate the skin.
