Dullness

Dull skin can occur out of the blue. Even those of us with fantastic skincare routines we pay attention to can be surprised by a sudden onset of dull patches, especially around the eyes, forehead and upper cheeks.

If you’ve been experiencing dullness, Skinsider has a range of skincare products for dull skin that will help revive skin, having it look its best in no time at all. Let us help you get it back with our range of top-rated skincare products.

Dull skin isn’t just a case of having dark patches appearing. It can simply be that certain areas are lacking lustre, or your natural glow has dissipated a little. There are several reasons why someone might have dull skin, and it is nothing to be worried about. Thanks to Skinsider, finding the right solution to combat dullness for your skin is easier than ever.

Why would someone have dull skin?

To understand why someone gets dull skin, it is important to know how dull skin occurs. Dull skin occurs when you have a build-up of dead skin cells in a concentrated area. It is the reason why people only experience dull patches in small areas as opposed to the entire face.

Someone could have dull skin for any number of reasons. The most common is from skin drying out, especially in the winter months when you might be outside in cold and then coming into dry and hot air at home. Skin dehydration also causes dullness (always remember that hydrated skin is healthy skin). Stress and lack of sleep are very popular triggers as well.

Anyone skipping out on using a moisturiser regularly can also have dull skin.

How can K-beauty products help with dull skin?

K-Beauty is all about using natural ingredients where possible. When used in skincare products for dull skin, you are looking at products that are all about getting rid of dead skin cells and boosting hydration as much as possible.

What type of skincare products help fight dull skin?

There are a few key product areas you’ll want to try out to tackle dull skin. Firstly, we recommend having a high-quality exfoliator; something which will help remove dead skin cells without leaving skin feeling irritated. Serums and ampoules are fantastic for getting in there and boosting hydration when the skin needs it most. iUNIK and Beauty of Joseon would be two of the best branded serums to look at.

You’ll also want to see if your current daily moisturiser is up to scratch. We have over 50 moisturisers in stock that deal specifically with dull skin concerns, especially those which work to prevent moisture loss.

What K-Beauty brands are best for tackling dull skin?

Within our dull skin range, brands we recommend include:

  • Banila
  • By Wishtrend
  • COSRX
  • Haruharu Wonder
  • Isntree
  • iUNIK
  • Klairs
  • LAGOM
  • Laniege
  • Pyunkang Yul
  • Real Barrier
  • URANG

If you are unfamiliar with K-Beauty brands and are looking for a good starting point, our best sellers section will highlight customer favourites for helping revive dull skin.

My dull skin feels dry after I treat it. What can I do?

Some people tend to go quite hard with exfoliators and cleansers to treat dull areas. It can have the knock-on effect of leaving skin dry and crying out for attention.

If you’ve found your skin begins to feel dry after treating it, opt for a reliable toner. Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner is a great product to use as it helps rebalance skin after you cleanse and gets it ready for moisturiser.

My skin is dull after being outside all day. Why is this happening?

Whether you’re someone who works outside or you’re lapping it up on a beach holiday, you can often find that dull skin starts appearing after a few days of sun exposure. It is usually due to the skin having a hard time dealing with more intense exposure to UV light. With this kind of dullness, you would want to use a sun cream like Heimish Artless Glow Base SPF 50+.

If you are worried about dull skin making an appearance when you’re on holiday, the LAGOM Mini Travel Kit is a must-have for your suitcase.

Can sheet masks help with dull skin?

If you have the time during the week to pop on a sheet mask, do it. If you don’t have the time, make some!

Skinsider has some fantastic K-Beauty sheet masks from leading brands, with some working wonders to revive dull skin. By Wishtrend Natural Vitamin 21.5% Enhancing Sheet Mask and Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Tencel Sheet Mask are both great sheet masks to have as part of your routine.
