Home Remedies to treat Dull Skin
Removing dead cells from the skin is what exfoliation is all about. It boosts the skin’s healthy appearance. There are endless skin scrubs and exfoliants available at cosmetic stores. Apart from using your hands, you can use exfoliating gloves but after you have rinsed them with water and dried them. Don’t use sponges as they can become a breeding ground for bacteria.
We make sure to have 8 glasses of water a day. Our skin needs the same attention in the form of moisturisation twice a day, one after the morning bath and the second before going off to bed. Added SPF protection is like a topping in the moisturiser. Apply moisturiser before night time too so that your skin stays nourished and looked after.
Drinking water is the best way to keeping your body and skin hydrated. It also increases the passage of blood to the skin, creating pinky cheeks and healthy glow.
