Here’s how it might help boost your skin’s radiance and overall health.
The goal of skin cycling is to not overwhelm your skin with an excess of products.
It’s designed to help you simplify your routine to save you from adverse side effects like redness, irritation, and dryness.
“By being strategic and deliberate about the products you’re using, and when you’re applying them, you can garner impressive results,” explains dermatologist Anna Chacon, M.D.
Use a gentle chemical exfoliant like Sunday Riley Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment, which uses lactic acid to slough off pore-clogging dead skin cells and enhance your skin’s natural glow.
“Choose retinol based on your skin type and how adjusted your skin already is to retinol,” says dermatologist Marisa Garshick, M.D. If you’re just starting out, she recommends using serums with soothing ingredients.
“Incorporate hydrating ingredients such as squalane, glycerin, ceramides, peptides...” says Dr. Chacon. Try Sunday Riley Ice Ceramide Moisturizing Cream, enriched with ceramides to protect the skin’s natural moisture barrier and prevent hydration loss.
