In the morning you are as fresh as a daisy, but towards dusk you always end up with a tired look and a dull, sallow complexion. No, you are not sick or fatigued. The culprits are your own dead cells sticking on to your skin virtually giving you a tired, haggard look. Yes, you might feel a twinge of envy by looking at some others (No, they don’t touch up their face frequently.) who continue to look fresh and gleaming even towards the end of the day. It’s just that your dead cells are more stubborn in shedding off than theirs or maybe your skin is too greasy. But that’s the way it is. Instead of brooding or cribbing over their good fortune, it’s better to spend that time in resolving your own problem. And the solution lies in sloughing off those obstinate dead cells by exfoliating your skin more often to give way to new cells.
An easy fix for a dull, worn-out face can be found here and here. As soon as you reach home after a long weary day try to revive your jaded looks with this simple do-it-yourself potion. The fresh and smooth feeling that you get afterwards is definitely worth it.
Mix all ingredients to make a smooth paste and apply it over your face and neck using circular motion.
Also use exfoliating masks and scrubs such as these at least once in a week. (If yours is really a bad case, then do it twice a week.) Or you can try this wheat germ complexion scrub, the recipe of which is mentioned below. Scrubs are an effective means of removing dead cells from the surface of the skin. The slightly abrasive tiny grains present in a scrub gently sloughs away dead and flaky skin. You should use it carefully though, and not rub too vigorously. For dry skin types, a scrub once in a month will suffice.
