Proper sleep is required
There is no doubt that if we do not take a proper sleep or complete sleep, the whole day we feel stressed or sleepy. It impacts our health and works both. One should at least try to sleep for around 6 to 7 hours every day. Make a regular habit of going to bed early and waking up early in the morning.

So now bring this healthy change in your sleeping habit and you can see your face will not have dullness after you will wake up taking a complete nap.
Make exfoliation a part of your skincare routine. One should exfoliate once a week to get rid of the dead skin cells. The dead skin cells start taking place on your face with time.

Get a good and natural face scrub for yourself and exfoliate every week using it. You can even prepare scrub at your home as well, using different ingredients like oats or sugar, etc. The dullness on your face will go away and you will have a glowing skin.
Cleansing of skin
How often do you clean your skin every day? Many of us have the habit of cleansing our face only once in a day and that is in the morning.

So, try to do cleansing at least twice a day. This will not let the dust clog your pores and will keep the dull skin away from you.
Moisturize your skin
Our skin needs moisturizer also to get rid of the dryness.
