Re: Morning/nighttime routine
There's really nothing we can do to stop aging but we can slow it down. I found that when I hit my 30s taking multivitamins and drinking more water and changing my diet (eating cleaner) has helped my skin a ton! Wearing makeup doesn't really put a bearing on how your face ages. Are you getting enough sleep? That could also be a factor. I made a switch from drugstore moisturizer to a bit more high end-- LANEIGE - Water Sleeping Mask LANEIGE - Water Bank Moisture Cream aren't priced too bad and I'll pair this with a gentle exfoliator. Right now, there's a holiday set that I'm loving its the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Fablantis from First Aid Beauty. It's a complete system, and the toner pads are actually great exfoliator and this may help your skin. Sometimes when you put oil on top of dry skin, it doesn't necessarily hydrate it. I'd if you are really really concerned, start with an esthetician first before you go to a dermatologist. It might save you some $ on that end and it sounds like the dullness you're having is just surface dryness if I'm understanding correctly. I hope this helps!
