How to Revive Dull Skin


All about what causes dull skin and how to treat it.


Dull skin is characterized by a lack of radiance or glow, often appearing dry, ashy, lackluster, or with uneven texture. Essentially, it results from the accumulation of dead skin cells on the skin's surface. If you've noticed your skin feeling or looking dull lately, it might be time to refresh your rituals.


Dull skin can happen at any age and can be the result of several factors such as lifestyle or environmental stressors. It can come from aging, dryness, dehydration, uneven skin texture, pollution, sun exposure and even lack of sleep. Identifying methods to address these factors is crucial for effectively treating dull skin. Below, we'll explore some approaches to tackle these underlying issues.


As mentioned, external factors such as sun exposure and pollution are one of the main reasons for dull skin. Exposure to UV radiation and pollution leads to the creation of free radicals, also known as reactive oxygen species. These harmful molecules can modify DNA, initiate alterations in pigmentation, and disrupt the synthesis of vital substances such as collagen and elastin in the skin. Essentially, they accelerate the onset of visible aging indicators, including dullness. To combat this, we recommend the Alto Advanced Defense and Repair Serum by SkinBetter Science. It has 19 antioxidants that fight off the free radicals our skin faces daily. It leaves your skin with a hydrated and healthy glow! At ALEXIS LAUREN in Miami, you can shop products like Alto Advanced online or in-studio to combat free radicals and other skincare concerns.


Moisturizer is crucial in locking in the hydration from the outside and promotes smooth, bright-looking skin. We recommend incorporating Creme VIP 02 by Biologique Recherche into your rituals. It is an oxygenating cream for immediate revitalized and healthy skin. It contains a combination of active ingredients to hydrate and oxygenate the skin and does wonders for tired and/or devitalized skin conditions. Incorporating other healthy habits into your lifestyle such as drinking plenty of water will support healthy looking skin.


Exfoliation is the best way to reduce roughness and improve your skin's overall texture. Removing dead skin cells helps promote a smoother more uniform appearance and keeps your skin clean.

Exfoliation starts with cleansing your skin thoroughly. We recommend the Warming Honey Cleanser from IS Clinical. This advanced formula enriched with plant extracts rebalances and nourishes the skin. This cleanser includes raw honey and enzymes, crucial for instant, dew youthful skin.

Exfoliation continues with a good toner. Lotion P50 PIGM 400 by Biologique Recherche is an amazing everyday exfoliant that resurfaces your skin and brightens your complexion. It is enriched with both the exfoliating active ingredients of the Lotion P50 and the brightening agents and antioxidants of the PIGM 400 range. This is a complete solution that helps to recover luminous and radiant skin with an even and lightened complexion. It gently exfoliates the skin, regulates excessive sebum secretion, moisturizes and helps maintain the skin's acidic pH. The formulation includes Niacinamide, Lactic Acid and Mandelic Acid, all wonderful for reviving dull skin, brightening and evening complexion.


Rough or uneven skin texture can be caused by dead skin cell buildup, acne or even dryness. Using the correct products to help the underlying causes does wonders for dull skin. Mystro Active Balance Serum by SkinBetter Science is a multifunctioning serum that visibly improves skin quality by using a purposeful blend of plant-based adaptogens to uniquely support the skin's natural ability to adapt to stress and maintain balance. Mystro corrects the global appearance of redness, rough skin texture, dullness, pore size and/or uneven pigmentation.


Facials can effectively address specific skin concerns through professional techniques of skin exfoliation, alongside antioxidant-rich creams, serums, and modalities, all aimed at brightening dull skin. These modalities can include in office microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, professional chemical peels, enzymes and more. Consistent monthly treatments ensure the thorough removal of dead skin cells and the stimulation of cell regeneration through various methods, leading to revitalized, healthy skin.

Masque Vivant also contains lactic acid, which is one of the most popular Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and a powerful ingredient that helps reduce and prevent acne breakouts.
