Looking to revitalize dull skin and make your face appear brighter and more radiant? There are a few ways that you can get a more healthy and hydrated look. If you want to rejuvenate tired, dull looking skin, follow these five tips to make your face look brighter.

Reduce Alcohol Intake

Alcohol is dehydrating and can impact the look and feel of your skin over time. By reducing your intake, you can achieve healthier and brighter looking skin. But if you can’t resist the urge, drink plenty of water along with your alcoholic beverages to help counteract the dehydration and keep your body’s moisture levels high.

Eat Vitamin and Nutrient Dense Foods

You are what you eat! And if you want healthy looking skin you need to have a healthy diet rich in vitamins and nutrients. Fill up on foods that are high in fatty acids like salmon and chia seeds. Also, vegetables packed with vitamin E, C, A, B, and antioxidants like avocados and tomatoes, will help your skin fight inflammation and the free radicals that cause skin damage.

Moisturize More

Dried out skin is more prone to developing fine lines and wrinkles and stripping your skin of its youthful look. What you need is a daily moisturizer with an SPF to help hydrate your skin and protect it from sun damage. You can also try an illuminating moisturizer to add a beautiful glow to your complexion or a collagen mask to drastically increase your skin’s hydration.


Exfoliation is the key to a brighter complexion. When done on a regular basis, it can help remove any dry and damaged skin and allow new plump skin cells to surface. To get a deeper and cleansing effect try a peel that can penetrate the deeper levels of the skin that regular store-bought treatments can’t reach.

Try A Clinical Treatment

Professional skin care treatments can help to rejuvenate and brighten your skin. Clinics like Ottawa Skin Care offer advanced skin treatments like SilkPeel™ that exfoliates, infuses, and stimulates your skin to deliver maximum results for more brighter and even skin.  Chemical peels can also remove dullness, lines, and imperfections. By scrubbing away old skin, you get a fresh new layer that looks and feels refreshed and smooth.

If you talk to a skin care professional, they’ll tell you just how important it is to hydrate, eat healthily, moisturize daily, exfoliate deeply, and take the necessary steps to care for your skin. At The Ottawa Skin Clinic we offer a variety of skin care treatments that will leave your skin looking and feeling even more refreshed and brighter than any store-bought product. No matter what your skin type, we have a treatment that is perfect for you!
