All about Skin Cycling

Welcome to our blog on skin cycling! If you're looking to switch up your skincare routine and give your skin a variety of nutrients and benefits, skin cycling might be the perfect solution for you. In this blog, we'll explain what skin cycling is and how it works, as well as provide a sample skin cycling routine that you can follow to get the best results. 

What is skin cycling

Simply put, skin cycling is the practice of rotating between different skincare products or ingredients in a set sequence or pattern. 


The idea behind skin cycling is to provide your skin with a range of nutrients and benefits, and to prevent your skin from becoming too accustomed to a single product or ingredient.


There are many different approaches to skin cycling, and the specific products and ingredients you use will depend on your skin type, concerns, and goals. Some people may rotate between different types of cleansers, toners, serums, and all about moisturizers, while others may focus on using different types of exfoliants or face masks at different times.

Skin cycling approach

One common approach to skin cycling is to divide the week into different days or phases, each with a different focus. For example, you might have a "hydration day" on Monday, a "brightening day" on Tuesday, and a "nourishing day" on Wednesday. On each of these days, you would use products that are targeted towards that specific focus. 


Here is a sample skin cycling routine that you can follow: 

Monday (Hydration Day):

  • Cleanse with a gentle, hydrating cleanser
  • Tone with a hydrating toner
  • Apply a hydrating serum
  • Finish with a moisturizer that is rich in hydrating ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid

Tuesday (Brightening Day):

  • Cleanse with a gentle, brightening cleanser
  • Tone with a brightening toner
  • Apply a brightening serum or face mask
  • Finish with a moisturizer that is rich in brightening ingredients, such as vitamin C

Wednesday (Nourishing Day):

  • Cleanse with a gentle, nourishing cleanser
  • Tone with a nourishing toner
  • Apply a nourishing serum or face mask
  • Finish with a moisturizer that is rich in nourishing ingredients, such as avocado oil or shea butter

Thursday (Exfoliation Day):

  • Cleanse with a gentle exfoliating cleanser
  • Tone with a toner
  • Apply a serum or face mask that is formulated with exfoliating ingredients, such as alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) or beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs)
  • Finish with a moisturizer

Friday (Protection Day):

  • Cleanse with a gentle cleanser
  • Tone with a toner
  • Apply a serum or face mask that is formulated with protective ingredients, such as antioxidants or SPF
  • Finish with a moisturizer that contains SPF

Saturday and Sunday:

  • Cleanse with a gentle cleanser
  • Tone with a toner
  • Apply a serum or face mask of your choice
  • Finish with a moisturizer
