Why Does Your Face Lack Glow and Become Dull?
There are many factors, ranging from poor lifestyle habits to the accumulation of dead skin cells due to which your skin misses that so-called glow, and you get skin problems. Unlike glowing skin, dull skin may have an uneven tone and feels rough and dry to the touch. As per Ayurvedic science, a dull complexion and skin problems indicate the vitiation of doshas in your body, and these can be affected by certain factors.
- Exposure to air pollutants makes skin look dull and creates a build-up of free radicals that damage your skin. This leads to premature wrinkles, unwanted pigmentation, and unevenness in skin tone
- The amount of moisture below your skin’s surface can decline, especially with age, leaving you with skin that looks deflated and dull. This type of skin also develops fine lines and wrinkles that look even harsher
- Increased build-up of dead cells on the skin makes it lose its healthy radiance. Our skin sheds millions of dead cells constantly and some of them may not fall off naturally. Due to this, your complexion gets a tired, lackluster, and unhealthy appearance
- Sun damage and pollution are unavoidable and can cause irregular coloring (pigmentation) of the skin
Lack of sleep, stress, and even what you eat can also affect your skin health. The good news is, you transform dull skin to luminous and glowing, without including a bunch of skincare products in your daily skincare routine. All these skin problems can be tackled when you adopt healthy habits and use just one Ayurvedic oil blend, the Kumkumadi face glowing oil. Enriched with pure herbal ingredients, this oil works best when applied and kept overnight and rejuvenates your skin from the inside.
