Refresh your skincare routine with Skin Cycling 

Refresh your skincare routine with Skin Cycling 
If you're looking to refresh your skincare routine, Skin Cycling may be the key to achieving your most radiant complexion yet. Though recently popularised on TikTok, beauty professionals have been utilising this method for years to guarantee that their clients' skin obtains all the necessary nutrients and active ingredients for a healthy, luminous glow. Whether you're faced with acne, wrinkles, or discolouration, skin cycling can gradually and effectively address specific skin concerns over time.

So, why is Skin Cycling an effective technique to incorporate into your current skincare regimen? One of the most common mistakes people make is using too many products, often at high concentrations, that don't work well together on the skin. This can lead to irritation, redness, and even months of "purging" before realizing that something is amiss.

Skin Cycling takes a "less is more" approach, encouraging you to utilize a strategic and simplified evening skincare routine. Rather than layering multiple products atop one another, Skin Cycling involves using products in a strategic manner that complements one another. The idea is simple - just as your muscles require recovery days after a workout, your skin benefits from recovery days as well.

To optimise your skincare routine, experiment with Skin Cycling using the 4-night cycle. The cycle commences with an exfoliation night, followed by a retinoid night, and then two recovery nights.

Night 1: Exfoliate

On the first night, start with double cleansing, then add an exfoliation step using products like Josh Rosebrook Acid Toner or Janesce Enzyme Peel. Follow up with a hydrating serum, moisturiser, and lock in all the goodness with an oil.

Night 2: Retinol

On the second night, use one of the most powerful ingredients for skin - retinoids. Try a Vitamin A serum, such as Synergie Ultimate A or Raaie Yellow Moonbeam Retinal Elixir. Follow with your regular moisturiser and oil to lock in moisture.

Night 3 + Night 4: Recovery Night

Give your skin some hydrating TLC. After cleansing, add a hydrating mist, followed by a hydrating serum. To maximise the benefits, lock everything in with a sleep mask, such as Emma Lewisham's Supernatural Mask or Josh Rosebrook's Advanced Hydrating Mask.

Then, repeat the cycle again - exfoliation night, retinoid night, and two recovery nights. After two cycles, you should notice less blotchiness and sensitivity and a healthier, more radiant complexion.

The beauty of Skin Cycling is that it can be personalised for your skin's needs. If you have extra sensitive skin or are new to using powerful skincare actives, you can opt for gentle Skin Cycling.
