Dusky skin is a classification for a skin type that is darker than fair or wheatish skin, while still being somewhat lighter than the darker shades of brown. Dusky skin tone is also the most common skin complexion for people in India. Most probably due to our genetic heritage as well as our proximity to the equator.
Yet, somehow, dusky skin doesn’t get as much love or care from the beauty industry as it should. Most companies focus their products on promises of getting fairer, rather than trying to make your natural skin tone shine through. This creates a harmful narrative where we begin to equate dusky skin meaning not as beautiful. This is harmful not only for your mental peace but also for your look. Since most people don’t always get the correct foundation meant for dusky skin. They buy lighter foundation shades in hopes of looking fairer, but end up looking grey.
This is because each skin type has its own unique colour and tone, and you need the right shades of products to make them shine. This is why dusky skin tone is as more of a cosmetic classification rather than a judgement on your worth. After all, there are thousands of models and actresses all over the world who’re renowned for their ‘sun-kissed’ look.
Dusky Skin Care
If you have dusky skin too, then the best thing you can do for it is, keep it healthy. Healthy skin has a natural glow and makes your skin tone look radiant. Keeping your skin healthy includes keeping it protected from harmful external elements, while also dealing with dead skin and blemishes. To accomplish this, you need to invest in cosmetic products that work on Indian skin tones.
Skeyndor has multiple lines of creams, serums, and other emulsions that work specifically for Indian skin types. Each line focuses on different types of skincare benefits and helps your face glow from within. For people with dusky skin tone, we recommend the following lines for daily use.
Skeyndor Sun Expertise Line
It is common knowledge that sun exposure is the true enemy of natural beauty. It not only causes dark spots and sunburns but can also lead to the development of skin cancer. Yet, despite knowing all this, most people assume that having dusky skin makes you immune to it all.
This thought is rooted in a popular myth that people with darker skin tones don’t get sunburned as easily. Even if that is true to an extent, it doesn’t mean you also get special protection from UV rays. This is why it is important to maintain proper sun protection wherever you go, even if it is cloudy outside.
Skeyndor’s Sun Expertise Line contains various creams, emulsions, and sprays that offer long and constant protection from the sun. They work on men, women and children alike and offer continued protection even when you’re sweating.
For people who don’t like the feel of sunscreen on their skin, we also offer special products that have a lighter touch. You can try our ‘Invisible Protective Sun Spray’ or our ‘Dry Touch Protective Emulsion’ to get the best results. Both products offer SPF50 worth of sun protection while feeling almost invisible on the skin. Take your time to explore the entire line and find the products that work best for you.
Skeyndor Derma Peel Pro Line
Cleansing your skin is a ritual that everyone should follow. Dead skin, dirt, dust, and other debris regularly build up on our skin. This causes the skin surface to become rough, dark and dull. It also causes the pores to get clogged up and result in acne and other problems.
This condition is easier to notice in people with lighter skin tones since the build-up contrasts heavily with their natural skin tone. But that doesn’t mean that people with dusky skin are any less affected. So, it is important to have good cleansing and exfoliating cream in your skincare routine.
Skeyndor’s Derma Peel Pro Line is designed specifically for this task. Created with alpha-hydroxy acids, liposomes and other active ingredients, this range of resurfacing peels help remove dead skin. In the process of clearing up dead skin cells, they also encourage the growth of new epidermis that is smoother.
Regardless of which peel you choose, don’t use it more than once a week as these are pretty strong formulations. In fact, people with extra sensitive skin should avoid it completely.
Skeyndor Power C+ Line
There is a common misconception that dusky skin doesn’t glow naturally. This is because people often associate glowing skin with fairer complexions. However, dusky skin has its own type of glow that really shines through when your skin is well cared for. And we aren’t just talking about the shine that comes from oily skin or heavy skin creams. Rather, we are referring to the glow that comes from deep within.
If you have a dusky skin tone and want to experience the same glow, we recommend using Skeyndor’s Power C+ Line. It is designed to infuse the skin tissues with healthy anti-oxidants, Vitamin C derivatives, and other natural extracts. This combination delivers a strong anti-free radical action to the skin and helps it fight off sun damage and photo-ageing. The result is a glow that blooms from within.
You can pick between a cream, emulsion, or serum depending on your specific skin type and personal needs. All of them are designed to deliver all the above-mentioned effects in various concentrated doses. And will make a great addition to your dusky skin care regimen.
Skeyndor Power Retinol Line
One of the issues that plague people with dusky skin is the appearance of blemishes and acne marks. It is a sad truth that dusky skin tone is more prone to scarring. If not treated properly, they are also more prone to developing permanent marks even after the original cause has healed. This is a side-effect of the excess melanin that is present in the epidermis. It can be the same case with sun damage as well.
To treat these problems, you need a solution that delivers a strong rejuvenating action to the skin. Skeyndor’s Power Retinol Line is designed to do just that. As the name suggests, all products from this line feature concentrated doses of Retinol, among other active ingredients.
Derived from Vitamin A, Retinol is considered one of the best skincare ingredients for treating various skin conditions. It goes deep within the skin and helps boost the production of elastin and collagen. This helps fade dark spots and scarring, while also delivering a mild exfoliating and moisturising effect.
All the products in our line are designed to deliver the best possible outcome for all skin types. And people with dusky skin tone can benefit the most. So make sure you try them all to see which one suits you best.
You can search for all the above-mentioned home care product lines online, at Skeyndor’s web store. We deliver all over India, and our products can even be bought through our salon partners. Speaking of salon partners, it is important to mention that these lines aren’t just for home care use only.
For people who love to get pampered, all these lines also feature professional salon treatments. These treatments can be availed at any of Skeyndor’s partner salons. They combine the benefits of all the home care products and enhance them with a soothing and relaxing face massage.
