Why Does My Skin Look Tired?
“You look tired, do you get enough sleep?” These words are hard to hear, especially when you are not.
Everyone desires a lush, glow-rious skin complexion. But, we all have days when tired and dull skin is unavoidable. Especially due to the hectic lives we lead.
But tired skin on your face constantly impacts your energy and how people perceive you. A study at Stockholm University suggests people who look tired as more likely to be considered unhealthy.
You might think your makeup hides your exhausted face, but tired skin is difficult to cover up. Therefore, we suggest you treat it rather than putting on infinite layers of concealer(which will only worsen the problem).
At Blue Brew Tea, we know the importance of healthy skin, considering the impact good skin has on your confidence. Here, we will give you a lowdown of what causes tired skin and how to regain your desired luminous skin.
To get your glowing and brightening skin back, you need to understand why your skin may have lost its radiance.
There are many reasons this could be happening. Something as minor as not cleansing properly can cause a dull and lifeless complexion. Here are five potential reasons that you need to know.
1. Dead Skin Cells
Our skin sheds a ton of dead skin cells every day, which pile up on each other and create a build-up on the skin. This layer of dead skin stops your skin from reflecting light giving your face a lifeless look.
2. Free Radicals
Pollution is another major factor for tired skin. The environmental aggressors create free radicals (molecules that harm cells in the body) on your skin, damaging collagen and increasing pigmentation. In short, free radicals make your skin dull and speed up ageing signs.
3. Skipping SPF
Skipping SPF is a skin sin that you should avoid at all costs. Exposure to the sun is the major cause to blame for your dull skin. These UV rays create free radicals on the skin resulting in an uneven and less lively look.
4. Unhealthy Lifestyle
Everything else is secondary; your diet greatly affects how your skin feels. Remember, you look what you put in, not what you put on. Lack of exercise, drinking alcohol, smoking, and eating food high in sugar, salt, and fat can devastate your skin.
That's why you must include superfoods into your diet to achieve the luminous skin you always crave.
5. Lack of Sleep
Your skin renews itself when you sleep. This is due to the rise in melatonin (hormones that enable tissue repair) and a decrease in cortisol (the body's stress hormones). Just a few days of interrupted sleep can affect your skin complexion.
Brightening Tired and Dull Skin
Now that you know the causes of tired skin, it's time to rejuvenate your skin with some help from Blue Brew. Incorporate these natural skincare tips to look less tired.
● Remove Your Makeup
Going to bed with makeup on will lead to nasty breakouts that strip skin of its glow. Use micellar water or oil cleanser to remove your makeup properly. Wash your face in the morning and night to remove the dirt and stop the oil from clogging your pores. Follow it with your skincare and sleep with a clean look so your skin can regenerate.
Exfoliate is simple deep cleansing that allows new skin cells to emerge. Your skin needs exfoliation a few times a week to remove the barriers of dead skin cells. In short, proper exfoliation uncover new cells that reveal even and radiant skin.
● Hydrate Your Skin
For youthful skin, it is necessary to stay hydrated in and out. That’s why ensure you drink enough water and eat meals with high water content. Moreover, add hydrating factors like a moisturizer into your skincare routine to boost your skin glow.
