Whether it’s due to lack of sleep, aging, or other environmental factors, everyone deals with dull skin at some point in their skin care journey.

“In your 40s, 50s, and beyond, it’s important to take a comprehensive approach to skin aging, not just treating the fine lines and wrinkles you may see in the mirror, but addressing…dullness and dryness that happen as our body starts producing less hyaluronic acid,” says Kate Somerville, founder of Kate Somerville.

While aging is inevitable, there are steps you can take to keep your skin looking its brightest, like using hydrating ingredients and making small changes in your everyday routine.

Ahead, experts share their best tips and products to combat dry skin. P.S. You can find the recommended products below in reFills.

Incorporate hyaluronic acid

“Hyaluronic acid is the ultimate hydrator, pumping skin full of water to plump and smooth so lines and wrinkles appear diminished,” shares Somerville. Some of our favorite serums that include this hydrating ingredient is the Grown Alchemist Brightening Serum and Kate Somerville® Kx Active Concentrates Squalane + Hyaluronic Serum. Use the serum daily to help improve the skin’s radiance and luminosity.

Drink more water

We know this goes without saying, but we had to share this tip to drive the message home. Lack of hydration is one of the biggest causes of dull skin and while it’s important to use hydrating skin care products, you should start with the basic step of drinking more water. After all, you are what you eat — or in this case, drink).


Boosting your skin’s complexion might be a simple as incorporating double-cleansing into your routine. “Improper cleansing [leaves you with] impurities, dirt, and oil on your skin. That causes dullness and oxidation. Introduce a single and double-cleansing system to remove deep impurities,” says Jeremy Muijs, founder and CEO of Grown Alchemist. Before cleansing, use a pre-soaked wipe like the BLAQ Dual Sided Wipes to gently remove any impurities. Then, follow up with a cleanser to wash away the rest of the day. We recommend the dr. brandt® Pores No More Cleanser or the Grown Alchemist Gentle Gel Cleanser.

Do a quick work out

Have you ever heard of the post-workout glow? If you want a more immediate fix to dull skin, squeeze in a quick 15-minute workout to increase your heart rate. Whether you do yoga or a HIIT routine, you’ll improve the blood and oxygen circulation throughout your body and your skin — ultimately, leading to glowing skin.
