How Do I Know If My Skincare Routine Is Working

How Do I Know If My Skincare Routine Is Working

They say Rome wasn’t built in a day, so what makes us think that shaking up our skincare routine can change our skin in the same amount of time? Chalk it up to clever marketing stamped on boxes that line the skincare aisles of every store that promote “2 weeks to healthy skin” or “clearer skin in just 10 days” or even “instant results.”

It helps to have a better understanding of how skin functions to pull back the curtain and realize that these instant gratification types of skincare are too good to be true. They’ll likely work, but not in that short span of time.

Since skin is the largest organ of the human body, it has a lot of responsibilities. For one, it protects our organs, tissues, and muscles. It also allows us sensations and keeps our temperature regulated. While we can only see the outer layer of it with our naked eye, the epidermis, our skin has 2 other layers following below, the dermis and hypodermis.

Each skincare product you use tackles the different layers of your skin. That means it takes time to get to those layers and benefit them through the infusion of beneficial ingredients. Research has shown that skin needs between 6 and 8 weeks to see the full optimal results. That’s because skin cells take about 40 days to kick into action.

That’s why skincare samples seldom wow us. We’re expecting much more out of them than they can deliver. It all comes down to time and patience. After all, if you go in for a med-spa skin rejuvenation procedure, you’re told that it will take a full 6 to 8 weeks to see the complete results.

Over the course of those weeks, you’ll notice some improvements, but it won’t be completely noticeable until it’s been nearly 2 months. Those procedures are more severe but that doesn’t mean you can’t get the same results by actively rejuvenating your skin with the products in your skincare routine. You’ll just have to find a product that has quality natural ingredients backed by science and simply stick with it.
