What Is Skin Cycling And Does It Work?
With so many skincare products in your routine, it can get confusing which product to use and when. Dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe created a new method called skin cycling, and it quickly gained popularity with over 8.4 million views on TikTok.
The skin cycling routine involves using different products at night for four days, so night one focuses on exfoliating the skin, night two replaces the exfoliator with a retinol, and night three and four focus on hydrating the skin. The purpose of skin cycling is to recover the skin so products can be more effective, but remember this routine is only done at night.
For those who don’t know how to mix and match ingredients or don’t see improvements in their current routine, the skin cycling method will allow products to be absorbed and penetrate the skin, making them more useful. Using different products each day will not irritate the skin, and if you keep up this routine, you’ll see fresh, glowy skin in the long run.
