How the Skin Cycling Trend Can Save Your Complexion
It’s all about letting your skin barrier recover between treatments.

Skin cycling is the latest beauty trend to hit the internet, encouraging people to adopt a four-day skincare regimen that combines active ingredients with skin recovery. The end goal here is to ensure the skin is not over-exfoliated or damaged – you can take care of your skin barrier while enjoying all the age-defying benefits of skincare!

The best thing about it is that it’s dermatologist-approved, so why not follow along with my skin cycling routine below to get your skin glowing?

Night 1: Exfoliate

No7 Lift & Luminate Dual Action Cleansing Exfoliator

First, cleanse and exfoliate the skin simultaneously with the No 7 Lift & Luminate Dual Action to buff away dirt and any impurities from the day. It will leave the skin with a texture visibly improved and instantly glowing.

Dr Naomi Pore Relation

Next, it’s time to tone with the Dr Naomi Pore Relation, a dual action toner and exfoliator that works to refine and shrink the appearance of pores, leaving a cleaner, smoother, and more even skin tone. Say goodbye to enlarged pores for good!

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream

And for the final step, it’s time to lock everything in with the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream, an award-winning formula that hydrates, plumps, brightens, smooths, firms, and revives the look of the skin, reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles all within just one product. It does feel like magic!

Night 2: Retinol

Sunday Riley 5 Stars Retinoid + Niacinamide Eye Serum

The second night is all about our beloved retinol. After cleansing and toning with my go-to products, I use the Sunday Riley 5 Stars Retinoid + Niacinamide Eye Serum, a hydrating gel serum that works to plump the look of lines and prevents the signs of premature skin ageing.

Sunday Riley A+ High Dose Retinoid Serum

Following up with another Sunday Riley gem, I reach for the A+ High Dose Retinoid Serum. This serum delivers an advanced 6.5% solution of stabilised retinoid blends and botanical, retinol-alternative extracts into the skin, leaving behind the look of fresh, young, smooth, and visibly radiant skin.

Skinstitut Expert Reveal Retinol Face Oil

And, as the last step of the night, the Skinstitut Expert Reveal Retinol Face Oil works deeply within the skin to correct its texture, tone, and clarity while simultaneously revamping collagen production to soften the visible signs of ageing.
