Is Your Skin Routine Working?

90% of the time whenever we purchase a skincare product we’re unfamiliar with, we ask ourselves will this product really work? In all honesty, only time will have your answers. So, the real question is, how long should you use a product to see if it’s working for your skin? Most people tend to see improvement in their skin within the first two weeks, whether big or small. Cell Turnover takes approximately 28-31 days to reveal young skin. It may take around a month to see effective results, but if you were to seek glowing skin, you’ll have to play the long game.

Your skin care routine is a process of time, commitment, and investment. If you want to achieve your skin at it’s best,  you’ll need to understand what works for your skin and what doesn’t. Remember, your skin is the largest organ of the human body and is need of more care than you think. 

Therefore, we’ll give you a breakdown of how long it should take for your skin to see results with the classic skin care essentials: cleanser, lotion/toner, exfoliator, and moisturizer. 

Cleansers: They instantly remove dirt and impurities. It’s best to stick to gentle cleansers as some may seem to make your skin feel extra dry. 

Improvements in your skin should appear from one to two weeks of use. Cleansers clean the skin, if you start to see unwanted results, toss it out! 

Toners: Lotions/toners have noticeable improvements within two weeks. Careful! Try looking for gentle ingredients because many tend to have strong fragrances.

Exfoliators: Helping with skin’s surface, you can feel results overnight, yet it will greatly progress if continued for six to eight weeks

Moisturizers: This product should have instant rejuvenation! Enhanced results begin around two to eight weeks! Lessen the weeks with the help of SPF! 

After all of this, Is your skin routine working for you? Maybe, it can be! If you notice these subtle improvements of your skin within the first week of usage, keep it up and record your skin journey for a minimum of 4 to 8 weeks! Not happy with your results, it’s best to put it away.
