What is Skin Cycling?
Skin cycling is a viral skincare method designed to maximise the success of active ingredients by carefully planning out use. It allows for both treatment and recovery by giving your skin breaks from certain products as needed.
This method is put in place during your nighttime skincare routine, creating a four-night system in which active ingredients such as exfoliants, retinoids, and barrier creams are spread out in a particular order. This allows you to enjoy and note the benefits of each without using too much or too little.
This routine is a wonderful way to read your skin thoroughly. As you implement skin cycling, you’ll be able to notice effects and link them back to particular products. This allows you to adjust your skincare routine accordingly, ensuring that you are only using products that show positive differences in the most strategic and effective manners possible.
Benefits of Skin Cycling
Overall, any skin type will be able to benefit from skin cycling. The system effectively works to help everyone to build a healthy skincare routine by singling out products and adjusting use to maximise results. Sensitive skin types, in particular, can benefit from spreading out their use of exfoliants and retinoids to find products and quantities that work best with their unique skincare needs.
Through skin cycling, routines are easily adjusted for success, and anybody can find a system that works best for them.
How to Build a Skin Cycling Routine
Night One: Exfoliation
The first night of skin cycling is typically set aside for exfoliation. Here, you use an exfoliating product that can clear away dirt, dead skin cells, and any other build-up across the surface of the skin. By removing this layer of dead skin cells and unwanted dirt, subsequent products will be able to penetrate the skin successfully and garner better results.
Night Two: Retinoids
For the second night of cycling, retinoids are essential. Versatile and well-loved in the world of skincare, retinoids are a vital ingredient for any effective skincare routine. Most people, however, cannot tolerate the effects on a nightly basis and will give up if they notice irritation or dryness as a result. By using retinoids once every four nights, you can get your skin used to the effects gradually and enjoy all the cleansing results over time.
Nights Three and Four: Hydration
The final two nights of skin cycling are dedicated to nourishing and treating the skin. While exfoliants and retinoids are designed to push the skin and scrub it, hydrating products are there to rebuild and recover. Nourishing the skin’s microbiome and repairing its protective barriers is essential to great skincare and will leave you feeling dewy and glowing. For a revolutionary formula with endlessly nourishing results, we recommend the Collagen Essence Hydrating Face Mask for this step. Your skin will thank you for it.
