A complexion that lacks lustre and is dull and dry, can often give your skin a look that appears lifeless. This can be a challenge when you feel fantastic and your skin betrays this, leaving you less confident with your appearance.
Developing dry skin is primarily the direct result of a lack of moisture which can be triggered by skin ageing or a medical condition such as eczema or psoriasis. Many people may be affected by dry skin at some time in their life and although it can appear anywhere on the body, it can be quite problematic when it affects the face.
When ageing is the likely cause, the hydrating processes that occur naturally within the skin start to slow down. Less hyaluronic acid and sebum is produced; two products that keep the skin well oiled and moist. This results in the skin drying out, as well as becoming less efficient in ridding the skin’s surface of dead skin cells.
When the skin is dry and less exfoliated it can also lead to dull skin - two conditions that are often found to accompany one another. It is important for the skin to function as intended and remove dead skin cells, generating new ones in order for the complexion to stay in good condition and retain its youthful glow. In our younger years, this process happens naturally, but as we get older we may find exfoliation will need a helping hand.
Through consultation, we Light Touch Clinic can assess your skin on a deeper level to ascertain the reason that your skin is lacklustre and dry.
Brightening the complexion and giving back that youthful glow can be achieved through a bespoke recommendation of rejuvenating treatments at Light Touch Clinic, including: facials.
