5 Quick Ways to Brighten a Dull Complexion

Skin can suffer and after days of wearing makeup or being exposed to dry air, it can end up looking dull. Here are some quick and simple ways to brighten up a dull complexion, leaving you with fresh-feeling skin that is also more radiant and has an amazing glow! 

  1. Face Mask

Be it a mud pack or another facial mask, search for a product that has skin-boosting ingredients. Apply to your face (avoiding eyes) and allow the mask to stay on as per the instructions, giving it enough time to soak in. 

  1. Highlighter

A highlighter product instantly adds radiance to a dull complexion and can make a big difference. Apply above the cheekbones and add lightly on the lower forehead and under your lips on your chin, highlighting light reflecting areas. Use a bronzer on shaded areas (such as under cheekbones) to create contrast and contour your face. 

  1. Exfoliating Scrub


Exfoliating scrubs are miracle workers, lifting off dull skin cells, built-up makeup and dirt, and leaving you with a fresh new layer of skin which is clearer, cleaner and less dull. 

  1. Facial Tan

Add a light facial tan to your skin (allow to dry before applying makeup) to give you a quick instant glow. Don’t forget to apply to your neck too to make it look even and avoid that tell-tale orange jawline. 

  1. Vitamin C Oil

Vitamin C oil does amazing things for skin and will rejuvenate and plump up skin, giving you a fresher look. It is also good for dry and aging skin. If you can’t get your hands on any, try a vitamin-packed fruit smoothie instead!
