what do dull skin and pigmentation issues look like?

While pigmentation changes usually present obviously, dull skin might be more difficult for the untrained eye to spot. Look out for:

  • Patches of discolored or flaking skin
  • Patches of skin that are lighter (hypopigmentation) or darker (hyperpigmentation) than the skin around them
  • Dry, patchy, or ashen look
  • Lackluster appearance
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Flat, tired or sallow appearance

common causes of dull skin and hyper-/hypopigmentation

Many factors contribute to lifeless skin or pigmentation changes, such as:

  • Dryness/dead skin buildup
  • Acne
  • Environmental factors like pollution
  • Genetics
  • Hormonal changes (natural or from medication)
  • Stress
  • Sun damage
  • Lack of hydration
  • Conditions like vitiligo
  • Aging
  • Smoking

facials for hyperpigmentation and brightening dull skin

Dullness and hyperpigmentation are best addressed at their root cause. At skoah facial shops, we offer a suite of facials designed to tone and brighten dull skin. Depending on your skin type, our skin trainers will recommend:

  1. the xtreme peel™. Looking for the best hyperpigmentation treatment for severe discoloration issues? Choose our high-content glycolic acid peel. It removes the top layers of skin, including skin damaged in a way that would cause pigmentation issues.
  2. the pro peel™. The pro peel is gentler than the xtreme peel, making it a better acne hyperpigmentation treatment. It’s also great for skin that’s dull from dryness or aging since it won’t strip as many natural oils.
  3. the facialiscious™ facial. We can add skin-brightening products or pigmentation-correcting serums to customize your facialiscious facial. Let your skin care trainer know what you’re struggling with, and we’ll pick a treatment to address your concerns.

Skin usually looks dull when the outer layer(s) are damaged and unhealthy. A combination of genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors contribute to lackluster shine. You can limit your risks by protecting your skin with sunscreen, drinking enough water, exfoliating gently and avoiding smoking.

Hyperpigmentation is when patches of your skin are darker than the surrounding skin or discolored in red or blue. Age spots, sun spots, liver spots and even freckles all count as hyperpigmentation. Hypopigmentation occurs when an area of the skin is lighter than the surrounding skin. Causes include conditions like vitiligo, infections, genetics and skin damage.
