You want to put your best face forward, but common skin conditions can make your skin look dull and lifeless.
Dead skin, for instance, can be caused by weather, lifestyle, products, age, sun exposure and dehydration. Did you know that the outermost layers of the skin are made up of dead skin cells? Every minute of every day, we naturally shed between 30,000 and 40,000 dead skin cells. The epidermis constantly makes new cells to eventually replace those you lost. However, if your skin looks dull, or even dry and flaky, it may have a buildup of dead skin.
Acne scars, uneven skin texture, sun damage, or melasma—brown or blue-gray patches or freckle-like spots—or even facial hair, can also impair your appearance.
