How to Revive Dull Skin

Dull skin is something everyone can relate to at some point. You know that feeling, when your makeup isn't going on right and you just look tired and your skin is looking kind of...bland. I know my skin will get like this if I wear a lot of makeup for several days in a row, or if I'm up really late the night before (alcohol the night before is a major contributor as well). Here's some of the things I do to bring my skin back to life when it's looking dull!

1. Hydrate

When my skin is looking dull, I know it's like that partly because I'm dehydrated. The first thing I'll do is drink a full glass of ice water and then refill my water bottle and keep drinking water all day. Water has so many benefits, especially for our skin.

2. Exfoliate

There's no better way to get rid of dead skin and to brighten than to exfoliate. I won't do this everyday because that's not good for your skin either. Some of my current favorite ways to deep clean and exfoliate my skin are using a regular cleanser with my Clarisonic or use a product specifically made for exfoliating, such as Lush Ocean Salt.

3. Use a Face Mask

There's a face mask out there for every skin concern you might have. So of course there's some out there for brightening and hydrating! One of my favorite face masks to bring dull skin back to life are the Glamglow Super Mud, which is great for pulling all of the bad stuff out of your face. Another favorite is the Lush Mask of Magnaminty. This one smells like mint, and everytime I use it my skin feels super soft and brand new. Another one I like to use is the Too Cool for School Egg Cream Maskwhich puts moisture back into your skin and makes you feel refreshed.

4. Moisturize

Nothing feels better than putting a moisturizer on fresh, clean skin. I am a big skincare junkie, so I love finding new moisturizers that actually do what they claim to do. One I've been loving lately that I feel brings my skin back to life is the Sunday Riley Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream. It sinks into my skin quickly and doesn't make it feel greasy at all.

5. Use Radiance Boosting Makeup

Once you take care of your skin and hopefully get it looking naturally radiant again, using radiance boosting makeup will definitely make your skin look even healthier! My current favorite is the NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator. I'll use this either mixed in with my foundation, or if I'm not wearing foundation that day, in the place of my foundation. Another product I like to use is the L'Oreal Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer.
