Dryness in the skin causes the skin tissue to break, producing very small splinters. These splinters can make the skin look not fresh and dull.
How to deal with dull skin
First, do cleansing by scrubbing (removal of dead skin cells). Some natural ingredients that you can use are finely ground rice, ground coffee, or ready-to-use powder scrub ingredients on the market.
After the dead skin cells are lifted, open the skin pores by steaming the facial skin with a bowl of warm water. After that continue by applying moisturizing ingredients according to the skin type.
One of the causes of skin rupture is because the skin lacks essential fatty acids which cause scaly dermatitis. This also revealed by Valori Treloar, MD, founder of Integrative Dermatology in Newton, Massachusetts, USA, that our bodies cannot produce essential fatty acids, so we need to supply them from daily food.
