Your Diet: Some foods can wreak havoc on your skin, if your diet includes a lot of inflammatory food, try to avoid them as much as possible.

Alcohol can lead to dehydrated skin, so can foods that are high in fat or salt.
By reducing the foods that are leading to your skin problems, you will start to see an improvement in your skin. Including fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet will help with some inflammation and start giving you that beautiful glow back. Water intake is key when flushing out your system.
Your Sleeping Habits: We all have times in our lives when we’re not getting enough sleep. Lack of sleep can also be leading to skin problems. Not sleeping enough can lead to dry, dehydrated skin. Increasing your sleep will help with combating some of these common skin woes.
Over Exfoliation: Often when we have dry, flaky skin we start to exfoliate. This can be a good thing to do, but over-exfoliation is also something that happens a lot. If you are using abrasive scrubs or enzymes every day, this can actually lead to over exfoliation and in turn, lead to more dry skin. Most people only need to exfoliate 2-4 days a week depending on their skin type. More than this can lead to more skin problems.
Be Gentle On Your skin: This tip is in continuation with the above point. When removing makeup, be gentle. You want to always clean your skin in the morning and before you go to bed. After you cleanse, apply your treatments and moisturizer. Always apply sunscreen of SPF of 40 or higher.
Consider Getting A Facial: While you can do all of the above-stated tips at home, sometimes getting advice from an esthetician will help. Booking a facial at TEN will give you the opportunity to have a consultation with your esthetician to discuss any skin concerns that you have been having. Together you will discuss options and come up with a plan on how to best address your concerns. Facials also allow the esthetician to touch your skin and see if it’s well hydrated and exfoliated. We will also talk about at-home care for you.
These are some of the tips that you can follow to revitalize your dull skin. Adding facial into your routine will be helpful, so look for Facial Treatment Near me and get a facial treatment that will be customized to your goals.
