Swear by a scrub

Know why your skin is always looking dull? Could be because you often miss out on a crucial part of skin care i.e using an effective scrub. An exfoliant scrubs away dead skin—the accumulation of which causes your skin to turn dull with time. Hence, you need to ensure that you prepare a face scrub at home that is targeted towards repairing dull skin. All you need to do is prepare a scrub with 1/2 fresh lemon and ½ cup granulated sugar along with 1 tbsp olive oil. While sugar works as an exfoliant, the citric acid in lemon will help lighten your skin. Apply this mix to your skin twice a week to achieve brighter looking skin.

Follow this four step process as a skin brightening treatment and your skin will slowly and surely lose its dullness.
