If the Skin Cycling trend has been on your radar for a while and you’ve got the hang of the basics – The Skin Cycling Must-Haves – then you’re ready to add a new #skincycling winner or two to your already winning formula.
SWITCH UP YOUR GO-TO CLEANSER
Just like skincare routine trends change, seemingly as often as the algorithm, so too do the cleansers on the market. The fact is, cleansers have come a long way from just cleansing your skin, and as cleansing is the first step of every night in the 4-night Skin Cycling regime, you need one that will work with your exfoliator, retinoids and moisturiser, not against them.
Lamelle Nourish Daily Cleanse is a copper-coloured soap-free foaming gel – suitable for all skin types – that’s as active as it is gentle, deeply cleansing pores for more refreshed-looking skin. It contains Marula and Grape Seed Extract, which support antioxidant defences; Allantoin, which soothes, refreshes and revitalises; and anti-inflammatory properties to keep redness at bay.
SkinCeuticals Replenishing Cleanser is a gentle, creamy, yet active face wash for normal to combination skin that’s looking to lock in moisture. We love that it deeply cleanses your skin, prepping it for each night’s Skin Cycling product without stripping your skin of much-needed moisture. Containing an active combination of Ceramides, Panthenol and Glycerine, this cleanser removes debris, impurities and makeup from your skin without any dry, tight feeling afterwards drying out your skin.
FEEL LIKE SKIN CYCLING’S GOT YOU SKIPPING A STEP?
We feel you! If you can’t imagine a day (or night) without serum like us, you’ve probably battled not to reach for it, particularly on your #skincycling recovery nights. The good news is that once you’ve found your skin cycling rhythm you’ll have a good idea of what your skin needs a little more of.
We suggest incorporating Skinceuticals Phloretin CF serum on night three (complimenting the retinoid action from the night before) Skin Renewal Ha Gel And Peptides serum (packed full of hyaluronic acid and peptides) on night four to really maximise moisture and lock in all the goodness you’ve been cycling through.
WHAT’S ON THE INSIDE REALLY COUNTS
Whether you’re a Skin Cycling newbie or an “Exfoliate, retinoid, recover, repeat!” pro, consider adding a supplement to your regime. Not only is it super easy to incorporate – take it every day, whatever the night’s skin cycling product line-up – but it’s a habit you’ll hold onto long after you’ve hopped off the #skincycling trend and onto the next #SkinTok sensation. So, which supplement do we recommend? Pro-Pheroid Glutathione is a powerful nutrient with multiple health benefits, including reduced inflammation, liver, heart, blood vessel protection, and immune system support. Not only will taking this supplement daily detoxify a long list of pathways in the body, but it will also improve your energy levels and promote healthy DNA production.
