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
Josh Rosebrook - Daily Acid Toner
Night 2: Retinol
Night 3 + Night 4: Recovery Night
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.
