Skin Cycling: The latest skincare trend

12 Nov 2022

Do you ever scroll TikTok in your spare time? Then you may have already seen the latest skincare trend passing by: Skin Cycling. With Skin Cycling you divide your skincare products over 4 days to avoid irritated skin and to get better results. We tell you about Skin Cycling and how you can easily apply it yourself.

What is Skin Cycling?

Exfoliating is hot. But when you exfoliate too often, you can damage or irritate your skin. That's why it's important not to do it every day. The Skin Cycling trend helps you with that. With this method, you work with a cycle of 4 days. The first day is dedicated to exfoliation. On day 2, you use a product with retinol. Then you plan 2 "repair days" to give your skin rest and allow it to recover and hydrate. This way you are less likely to get irritations, which will provide you with better results. Easy, right?


Day 1 exfoliating

Day 1 of the Skin Cycling cycle is all about exfoliating. Here you remove (dead) skin cells from the upper skin layer. By removing these skin cells, you speed up cell renewal. The result? A brighter and firmer skin. For example, after cleansing your face, use our PHA Peeling Toner from Benton to exfoliate. This toner will remove dead skin cells and impurities, resulting in hydrated and glowing skin. The Jumiso Yes I am toner with AHA 5% contains glycolic acid and lactic acid to remove dead skin cells. At the same time, the lemon myrtle extract and houttuynia cortada soften the skin.

Do you have more sensitive skin? Then the Purito AHA BHA Refreshing Solution is your go-to product. The glycolic acid in this exfoliant removes dead skin cells and the salicylic acid has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, reducing blackheads, pimples, and redness.

Day 2: retinol

On day 2, after cleansing your skin, use a product with retinol. Retinol is a form of vitamin A. It accelerates skin renewal and skin repair. Retinol works effectively against skin aging. On day 2, choose the Klavuu Resuve Pearlsation Multi Peptide Cream. This cream contains retinol and it is an anti-aging cream that moisturizes. Do you have more mature skin? Then use the Indeed Labs Retinol Reface cream. This lightweight cream helps firm the skin.

Day 3: repair and hydrate

Day 3 is all about rest. Today you let your skin rest, give your skin time to repair and nourish it by moisturizing it. If you suffer from dry skin, this is the time to take extra good care of your skin. Then choose a cream such as the Pyunkang Yul Intensive Repair Cream or the Pyungkang Yul Black Tea Boosting Cream.

Is your skin naturally not necessarily dry? Then you can also use a cream that is suitable for all skin types. Consider the iUNIK Black Snail Restore Cream or if your skin is a little more sensitive the Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream.

Day 4 repair and moisturize

Day 4 is also all about feeding the skin well and not using heavy products. Tip: also use a mild cleanser to give your skin even more rest. On day 4, we recommend using a nourishing cream again, such as the Purito B5 Panthenol Re-barrier Cream or the Ceramide Ato Concentrate Cream.
