Why You Shouldn't Skip Your Skincare Routine
Picture this; You’re practicing your nightly skincare routine and notice your skin feels a little different. A couple blemishes that weren’t there last night, dry patches, or your skin feeling more oily than usual. Your diet has been the same so there’s no reason for your skin to be breaking out. So you decide to skip your usual routine….
You may think skipping your skincare a night or two is similar to intermediate fasting, great for health and wellness and gets you more in tune with how your body feels, like turning the power button off and on again. But skipping your skincare routine is nothing like this and is not advised by any skincare experts, your skin is in need of it’s everyday moisturisers, cleansers and SPF to preserve it against every day aggressors such as the environment, pollution, grime and dirt in the air that our skin needs our help fighting against. If your skin is more on the sensitive side, stopping your skincare for even one night could make your skin's protective barrier weaken substantially.
If your skin is breaking out and flaring up it’s because that’s it’s only way of communicating to us what it needs, when you begin your skincare routine you notice your skin glowing, blemishes vanishing and feeling smooth and refreshed. The solution to these off periods is to simply change up the routine, re-jig the products you use to something your skin reacts better to.
But one thing to note, If you have skipped your skincare routine for a night and in over 24-48 hours you feel a difference in your skin, this could be a sign that the products you’re using aren’t effective. Your skincare routine shouldn’t just be providing surface level aesthetics but work to deeply nourish and heal your skin, so this could be a sign to upgrade your products.
