Which cream(s) should be used against dull complexion?

No matter your skin type, your complexion can lose its radiance. This is recognized by its grayish color. Due to the lack of radiance, the face tends to appear aged or tired. However, there are treatments available to address dull skin and restore its glow.

What is dull skin, lacking in radiance?

A dull complexion is recognized by its lack of uniformity: the skin tone appears dull, blurred, almost a bit gray, and tends to age the face. From lack of sleep to skin aging, through stress, pollution, smoking, hormonal imbalance, or poor toxin elimination: the factors of a gray complexion are numerous. It takes very little for your skin to become less clear, for its texture to become irregular, and for it to reflect light less effectively. Indeed, the accumulation of dead cells and impurities causes the deterioration of the skin's quality. Consequently, the complexion presents irregularities and becomes less homogeneous.

How to regain a radiant complexion?

To regain radiant skin, incorporate a care product enriched with antioxidants into your daily beauty routine. Indeed, antioxidants are true benefactors for your face as they act as free radical destroyers, wrinkle fillers, pigment spot faders, and radiance boosters, preventing premature skin aging and combating cellular oxidation. This will effectively help the epidermis defend itself against external aggressions, preserving the youthfulness and beauty of your skin for a longer period.

At Typology, we have formulated a vitamin C moisturizer to combat free radicals that are responsible for premature skin aging and dull complexion. This cream contains the following active ingredients:

  • Vitamin C: It possesses an antioxidant power that neutralizes free radicals originating from pollution, smoking, or UV exposure, as well as excess melanin, which is responsible for the appearance of dark spots that darken the complexion. It also accelerates cellular renewal, which restores radiance to the skin and uniformity to the complexion, and strengthens the skin's elasticity. Not to mention its ability to boost collagen production, which restores freshness to skin beginning to show signs of fine lines.

  • Lemon Water: Derived from squeezed lemon, this water possesses unifying and toning virtues. It is combined with an essential oil from mandarin peel to bring a citrus note to the care.

  • Vegetable Glycerin: This active ingredient has humectant properties that allow it to maintain skin hydration. Additionally, it exerts a softening action on the skin.

Contraindications of Vitamin C Cream.

The Vitamin C cream is not recommended for sensitive skin or in cases of rosacea (a chronic skin condition characterized by redness). By stimulating skin oxygenation, this treatment may cause redness to appear. Furthermore, it is better to avoid applying it before sun exposure. Containing an essential oil, this treatment is not advised for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
