Ever wondered about the reason behind your dull skin, even after a good night’s rest and use of proper skincare? One of the key reasons behind dull skin is insufficient oxygen flow, but there are other factors that matter.

  1. Improper diet, lifestyle and dehydration causes dull skin

Our skin reflects the food we eat. Proper nutrition greatly affects the health of your skin! The late nights partying may seem like harmless #YOLO fun, but drinking and smoking severely dehydrate the skin. Keep yourself adequately hydrated after a night out, eat more fruits and vegetables and exercise regularly to get the blood pumping!

  1. Environmental pollution, too.

For city dwellers, smog, dust and other kinds of environmental pollutants congest our pores daily. Environmental pollution also increases the free radicals in your cells, which cause premature ageing. Ensure you double cleanse daily with an antioxidant-rich milk cleanser before your usual cleanser for a hydrating deep cleanse. This rids your skin of unwanted congestion.

  1. Lack of proper exfoliation

Regular exfoliation prevents the buildup of dead skin cells. It also stimulates the cell renewal process and microcirculation as you massage your skin. Do use gentle, hydrating exfoliators as over-drying ingredients can stimulate more sebum and unwanted skin issues.

  1. Sun exposure

A bad tan is not the only problem that comes from prolonged sun exposure to the sun. Your complexion can also become dull and your skin can take on a leathery, rough feeling. Apply (and reapply) sunscreen to slow the ageing process.

  1. Air-conditioned spaces

Air conditioning may be the greatest invention of the 21st century, but it causes dehydration to the skin. Using a humidifier when and applying moisturizers before you sleep can help your skin remain hydrated!

With all these factors in play, it is important for your skincare routine to include products that are suitable for your skin. Porcelain’s new and proprietary Revive, Glycolic Acid Toner is alcohol-, paraben- and mineral oil-free to prevent skin irritation. Boasting ingredients like witch hazel, Vitamin C and aloe vera, the Glycolic Toner also has glycolic acid and lactic acid to gently exfoliate dead skin cells while thoroughly removing traces of makeup and dirt that may be left behind even after cleansing.

What’s left is skin with pH balance-restored at its natural level to allow for better absorption of products. Lactic acid, a.k.a. alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), also increases collagen production to aid in skin regeneration as the skin ages. Besides unclogging pores and reducing the chances of a breakout, sodium hyaluronate in the toner locks in moisture to leave your complexion smooth and supple.

Here are other benefits the Glycolic Acid Toner can offer:

  • Tone and brighten skin
  • Visibly reduce the appearance of pore size
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of ageing
  • Refine skin texture
