What causes dull skin?
• Dry skin: Think about how a dried, shriveled up apple looks compared to a fresh one full of moisture—the same idea is what happens to your skin when it’s dehydrated. Without moisture, the skin becomes dry and dehydrated, which can it turn leave it looking dull. Dry skin also makes fine lines and wrinkles look even more harsh. Dry climates, long hot showers, and indoor air can all contribute to drying out your skin.
• Dead skin cells: We shed millions of skin cells a day, so unless you do something to actively remove the ones that don’t fall off naturally, your skin is going to have a grayish look. Think of that dead-cell buildup like dust. Until you wipe it clean, it’s a dingy layer that prevents your skin from reflecting light.
• Stress: When you stress Cortisol levels in the body go up, your fight-or-flight response kicks in, and blood flow goes to your vital organs, not your face, leading to skin looking sallow and dull. Stress is also known to worsen inflammatory skin conditions, like rosacea and acne.
• Wrong skincare products: If your skincare regimen doesn’t contain products that suit your skin type, it can break down your skin barrier. This can be a major cause of dull-looking skin. Using harsh soaps or products formulated with unsuitable synthesized ingredients on your face can also result in loss of moisture. Often, skincare products that contain harmful ingredients when exposed to your skin, causes clogged pore, redness, freshness, dry skin, etc

Illuminate Face Serum is made with a combination of essential and carrier oils which have a wide range of benefits for your skin.
Let’s look a bit deeper into some of them:
Rosehip oil contains powerful nutrients that fortify the skin and improve its health. Undernourished skin also tends to secrete excess oil, which can lead to acne. Rosehip oil prevents this. Retinoids in rosehip oil, such as trans retinoic acid, help to lighten pigment. They also speed up cell maturation and turnover, which results in an overall brightening effect.
Vitamin C promotes collagen production, which has the potential to thicken the dermis, diminish fine lines, and is essential for firm, healthy skin. On top of that, vitamin C is an antioxidant, meaning it protects skin cells from damaging free radicals caused by UV exposure. It also inhibits melanin production in the skin, which helps to lighten hyperpigmentation and brown spots, even out skin tone, and enhance skin radiance. Vitamin C is a great addition to this face serum, and the key to maintaining a smooth, even, and glowy complexion.
Geranium essential oil is a natural anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory oil, which actively boosts skin’s health and natural glow. It’s often used to combat dermatitis and other damaging skin conditions, helping skin cells to naturally regenerate and leaving your skin clearer and with a natural glow and health that you can see.
