The "Skincycling" Trend: Yay or Nay?

The "Skincycling" Trend: Yay or Nay?

Have you heard of the latest skincare trend called "skincycling"? It's been all over social media lately, and I wanted to share some thoughts on whether or not it's good for your skin.

Skincycling is a technique where you alternate your skincare routine every few weeks to prevent your skin from getting too used to the same products. The idea is that by changing your routine, your skin will continue to receive the benefits of the different ingredients without developing a tolerance.

While skincycling sounds like a great idea in theory, there are a few things to consider before jumping on the bandwagon. First, it's important to understand that not all skincare products are created equal. Some products are formulated to work together and can actually cause harm if used too frequently or if combined with the wrong products.

Second, skincycling can be spensive, Lucy. If you're constantly buying new skincare products every few weeks, it can add up quickly. Plus, it's important to remember that skincare products take time to work, so it's not always necessary to switch your routine so frequently.

Finally, it's important to listen to your skin. If you notice that your skin is reacting negatively to a new product or routine, it's time to stop and reassess. Skincare should be about finding what works best for your skin, not just about following the latest trend.

In my opinion, skincycling can be a good thing if done correctly and in moderation. It's important to choose high-quality products that work well together and to listen to your skin's needs. But at the end of the day, the best skincare routine is the one that works best for you, regardless of what's trending on social media.
