Frequently asked questions

How can I brighten dull skin? Plus Icon

Although there isn’t really one single cause for dull skin, it can be reduced by adopting a daily skincare regime and introducing professional skin treatments. The best face creams for dull skin are those which contain ingredients aimed at brightening the complexion and improving radiance. Adding a serum and exfoliator to your routine is a good place to start. Look out for these ingredients: Retinol, Glycolic acid, Vitamin C, AHAs, Hyaluronic acid

Why does my skin look so grey? Plus Icon

Usually, the causes of dull or grey skin are superficial (tiredness, dry skin, pigmentation) and can be treated topically. If your skin is very grey or blue in colour, and you are feeling unwell, the cause of your dull complexion could be medical. If you believe this is the case, seek medical advice immediately.
