In a fast-paced world where trends come and go, one trend that has been gaining momentum in the beauty and skincare community is "skin cycling." In this blog, we will explore what skin cycling is, how it works, and why it might just be the key to unlocking radiant skin at any age.


Understanding Skin Cycling

Skin cycling is a holistic approach to skincare that involves adjusting your beauty routine in sync with the natural cycles of your skin. Just as our bodies follow daily and monthly rhythms, our skin also goes through cycles influenced by various factors like hormones, weather, and lifestyle choices. Embracing these cycles allows us to tailor our skincare regimen to support our skin's ever-changing needs. Our skin follows a roughly 28-day renewal cycle. At the beginning of the cycle, the skin's focus is on repair and regeneration. As the days progress, the skin's needs shift, and it becomes more receptive to certain treatments. Skin cycling can lead to improved and more consistent results from your skincare products.


How it Works: 

  1. We want to introduce active ingredients an a way that is compatible with your skin cycle and so that you tolerate the changes well.

  2. Skin needs to be prepped with an exfoliant (night 1)

  3. Then the actives introduced (night 2)

  4. Then given a rest so skin receives what it needs at the right time (nights 3 and 4)


Benefits of Skin Cycling:

  1. Optimal Results: By providing your skin with what it needs at the right time, skin cycling can lead to improved and more consistent results from your skincare products.

  2. Adaptable to Age: Skin cycling is not limited to a specific age group. Whether you're in your 20s or 60s, adjusting your skincare routine to suit your skin's current condition can help you maintain a healthy and youthful complexion.

  3. Embracing Change: Skin cycling encourages embracing the natural fluctuations of our skin instead of trying to fight against them. It fosters a positive relationship with our skin and promotes self-care.

  4. Sustainable Beauty: Skin cycling promotes mindful product use. Instead of buying new products constantly, you work with what you have, reducing waste and promoting a sustainable beauty routine.


Tips for Effective Skin Cycling:

  1. Use a 4 day cycle and stick to the routine. Use your phone or diary to keep track.

  2. Use Quality Products: Opt for skincare products with active ingredients that cater to your skin's specific needs during each phase.

  3. Stay Hydrated and Eat Well: Proper hydration and a balanced diet play a vital role in skin health. Remember to drink plenty of water and include nourishing foods in your meals.

  4. Use your sunscreen because your skin will be more sensitive due to the active ingredients!
