How to Take Care of Dull, Tired Skin

How to Take Care of Dull, Tired Skin Everyday stress can easily make your skin look dull and tired. Although there is no such diagnosis as “skin fatigue” in medicine or cosmetology, your skin can indeed “get tired”, which means that it needs special care and rest. So, what are the main signs of tired skin and how to take proper care of it? Read on to get some tips.

Modern life is full of stress that affects the body in the most negative way. The tired look of your skin is one of the first signs that you need to do something about the stress you’re experiencing in your life before it affects you too much. The skin begins to look tired because stress keeps it from getting all the nutrients and moisture it needs, as well as makes it vulnerable to aggressive environmental factors.

The Main Signs of Tired Skin

To figure out whether you can call your skin tired, you need to carefully examine it and determine if there are any characteristic signs of fatigue, such as:

  • loss of elasticity and firmness (the skin is too soft to the touch or even sagging);
  • the complexion looks greyish, and the cheeks have lost their healthy blush;
  • dark circles under the eyes have appeared or become more visible;
  • your eyelids have become droopy because the skin has lost its firmness and elasticity (this is called ptosis);
  • the skin has become too dry, thin and flaky.

It should be noted that tired skin is not necessarily an age-related problem, and that even very young skin can experience fatigue. Therefore, if these signs appear at a young age, you shouldn’t ignore them. Instead, you should put maximum effort into making your skin look healthy again.

First of all, you need to reduce stressors in your life as much as possible and give your body a chance to properly rest and recuperate. It can be hard and takes a lot of time, but if you don’t take a break, it is simply pointless to slather your skin with various cosmetic products, hoping that they will eliminate the signs of fatigue once and for all.

You should ensure that you get enough sleep (at least 6–8 hours a day), eat a healthy and balanced diet, drink enough water, and avoid emotional stressors if possible or at least minimize their impact. Your diet is especially important, because your skin needs certain vitamins and minerals to remain healthy.

Finally, if you have tired skin, you shouldn’t use too much makeup. Bad habits (smoking, alcohol consumption, sedentary or nocturnal lifestyle) and exposure to harmful environmental factors (UV radiation, frost, harsh wind) also take a toll on your skin. Here are a few tips for taking care of tired skin and restoring its healthy appearance.

Tired skin needs more intensive nourishment

To nourish the skin with the signs of fatigue, you need to use both nourishing creams and nourishing masks (the latter have a higher concentration of nutrients). If your skin looks extremely dull and tired, you can use masks even daily until your skin starts looking better.

Tired skin needs very gentle cleansing

Aggressive cleansers are harmful to the skin with the signs of fatigue, so you need to opt for mild and gentle foams, gels, or other types facial cleansers. Such products should be free of SLS, SLES and other harsh surfactants, parabens, synthetic dyes and fragrances, and other possible irritants.

Tired skin needs vitamin C

Products with vitamin C (ascorbic acid) are a real lifesaver for tired skin. It is an essential vitamin that stimulates the production of collagen in the skin and is responsible for the skin’s healthy glow. As a result, skincare products with vitamin C effectively combat dull complexion, boost the skin’s elasticity and firmness, lighten the skin and make it look fresh.

Tired skin needs revitalising

If your skin has pronounced signs of fatigue, it needs revitalising products. For example, you can try algae (alginate) peel-off masks that have a pronounced lifting effect. They reduce puffiness, boost microcirculation in the epidermis, improve the skin’s elasticity and firmness, and restore healthy complexion. Such masks are formulated with algae-based alginic acid or its salt, sodium alginate, and infused with various herbal extracts, essential oils, and other natural ingredients.

Tired skin needs detox

Tired skin can suffer from the negative effects of toxins accumulated in your body, so regular detoxification is essential for keeping it healthy. Popular detox ingredients used in skincare products include grapeseed extract, ginkgo extract, green tea extract, coffee extract, algae extract, cosmetic clay (kaolin, fuller’s earth, bentonite, etc.), bamboo charcoal, hydroxy acids, etc. In addition, you can try facial massage that boosts blood circulation and lymph drainage, helping your skin to get rid of toxins naturally.
