7 reasons why your skin looks dull and tired

Lack of sleep
There’s a reason why it’s called ‘beauty sleep’; getting the requisite number of hours of good quality z-time is absolutely paramount to how we will look and feel in the morning. As adults we need around 7-8 hours sleep a night, as this is when our bodies kick into action repairing, detoxifying and rebooting our system.

Dehydration
We don’t need to tell you how important drinking enough water is to your general wellbeing. And this works for skin too. Our skin is the shield between our body and the external world, protecting it from daily aggressors such as pollution. In order for skin to function properly as a barrier it needs to be well hydrated (dry, cracked skin allows a much greater flow of free radicals to enter the skin). Plumper skin cells will also give you that magically dewy look.

Life is so stressful
Yes, stress really can age you! When you’re stressed the body releases a hormone called cortisol. At high levels this hormone contributes to the breakdown of elastic tissue and collagen (a protein that is key to your skin to looking plump and radiant) which all contributes to premature ageing.

You're a junk food junkie
The old adage ‘you are what you eat’ is very true when it comes to your skin health. A diet rich in processed food, sugar, alcohol and factory farmed meat and poultry is nutrient poor and going to play havoc with your skin (as well as your mood, weight and brain function, by the way). The result will likely be dull looking, problem skin prone to breakouts.

FAQ

HOW ANTIOXIDANTS WORK TO HELP YOUR SKIN
Familiar with antioxidants, but not sure exactly how they help your skin? We take a closer look at the links between skin and so-called ‘superfoods’.

What is free radical damage?
There’s much talk about damaging ‘free-radicals’ in the beauty world but what exactly are these beauty ‘devils’ and are they always harmful? Free radicals are unstable molecules in the body that can cause DNA mutation, they have been linked to ageing as well as serious illnesses such as cancer, heart disease and Parkinsons, but are not always bad. Free radicals occur as part of a natural metabolic process in the body called oxidation and are a vital part of the body’s natural defenses (immune cells shoot out free radicals to fight invading bacteria, for example), however too many and they can cause damage.

This is because external factors, such as pollution, smoking, and UV rays (otherwise known as the Exposome) can generate so many free radicals that the body's natural defenses are overwhelmed - a phenomenon known as oxidative stress - which causes free radical damage at the cell level. Triggered by these external factors, free radical damage has been shown to accelerate visible signs of ageing as well as disease.

So, where do antioxidants - known to combat free radicals - come in?

Any molecule that protects your body against free radicals is known as an antioxidant, as they are “anti-oxidation”. Antioxidants help to fight the negative effects free radicals have on our skin by offering themselves as a shield and acting as a substitute for the skin molecules that free radicals usually latch onto. With over 8000 varieties, including vitamins, polyphenols and flavonoids there are plenty of antioxidants that can be effective, both imbibed in foods and supplements and applied externally to skin.

Whether its key minerals the body can’t produce on its own, such as calcium, or dietary supplements for improved general health, such as ginkgo biloba, we know that what we eat can have a significant impact on our skin’s future. Good nutrition has been linked to a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, with certain micronutrients shown to be as or more effective than topical cosmetics. 

Nutrition rich in antioxidants tends to be associated with brightly-coloured foods, such as fruits (red berries in particular), vegetables and even spices, but antioxidants can also be found in other, more unlikely places like chocolate. What’s more, they don’t just help skin respond to ageing. Research has shown that polyphenols, which are found in dark chocolate and grapes, can help improve circulation. Another antioxidant, lycopene, found in tomatoes, has been shown to help reduce inflammation linked to sunburn.

Your Free Radical fighting beauty regime

Just as foods can help aid the body fight free radical damage, your beauty regime is another vital way of injecting skin with antioxidants and also protecting it against the environment. First up, it’s vital to start and finish your day with a thorough cleansing routine, especially if you’re living in a polluted urban area. Pureté Thermale 3-in-1 One Step Cleanser is a wash off cream that acts as a cleansing milk, toning lotion and eye make-up remover in one. Moreover it’s effective even on sensitive skin, leaving it feeling soft and looking radiant. 

Up to 80 percent of skin’s ageing signs are caused by environmental exposure, so once pollutants and impurities have been washed away, protect and hydrate skin to ensure it’s barrier function is working at an optimum. Vichy Slow Âge Fluid Moisturiser, for normal to combination skin, contains antioxidant Baïcalin, probiotic-derived Bifidus and Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water along with SPF25. It is specifically designed to combat some of the effects of pollution and clinically proven to slow down the appearance of signs of ageing. 

Tackle excess free radicals from the inside and out and you can make a real difference to skin health as well as the health of the rest of your body, for a glow that lasts day after day.

GET THE GLOW: HOW TO INCLUDE VITAMIN C IN YOUR LIFE
When you’re feeling under the weather and like a cold is about to strike, you’ll probably start to load up on immune-boosting vitamin C – either in vitamin form or fresh fruit and veg. But do you do the same for your skin when it’s feeling a little lacklustre? Read on to find out how vitamin C can improve skin texture and quality in just a few days.

What’s so special about Vitamin C?
Every day, the skin is exposed to environmental aggressors such as UV from the sun, pollution and stress. All of these factors can have a detrimental impact on the skin, increasing the speed of the ageing process – pores can appear enlarged, skin looks dull and wrinkles enhanced. So how to stop this process in its tracks? An antioxidant such as vitamin C can neutralise free radicals, helping the skin to fight against oxidative stress-induced damage. It can also help improve and fight against pigment disorders and inflammation.

What’s the catch?
The one downside to vitamin C is that it’s a fragile antioxidant that degrades quickly when exposed to oxygen, water or heat. So, if you use a vitamin C serum, for example, its potency starts to decrease as soon as you open the lid. Most skincare brands will advise you of the shelf life of a vitamin C product but make sure you check to ensure you’re getting the most from the product.

One ingredient, many names
If you’re actively searching for a face wash, moisturiser or serum that includes vitamin C, be mindful that it can be labelled under a few different guises. Ascorbic Acid, Ascorbate, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate and Ascorbyl Glucoside are all forms of vitamin C. It’s also wise to check the potency to get an idea of its efficacy - anything between 10%-15% is especially effective while a very low dose may not make a huge difference.

How to reap the benefits of vitamin C
Vitamin C’s fragile nature has made it a challenge to capture in the past, but skincare brands such as Vichy have now found a solution. Vichy’s Liftactiv Vitamin C Brightening Skin Corrector, for example, is designed as a 10-day treatment. During this time the properties of the serum remain intact and the vitamin C has the time to produce amazing results. It works quickly to reduce the appearance of fine lines, boost radiance and improve the protective effect of the skin barrier.

The best time to use a vitamin C treatment?
We all have times of the year that are particularly busy and hard on the skin such as wedding season or post-festival. Even a change of season can leave the skin looking a little dull and lifeless. This is actually the best time to use a vitamin C treatment as it can help to keep the skin looking bright and healthy – see it as a wake-up call for your complexion. Start to use it 10 days before a big event, or over a period when you know your skin may need some extra help.
