Expecting your brand new skincare products to work in one day is as pointless as expecting that extra holiday weight to fall off after one day of healthy eating. Just like anything worth waiting for, achieving clear skin takes consistency and routine. Not only does our skin thrive when accustomed to a regular routine, but it can take up to 8 weeks for the full effects of new skincare to start showing results, as cell turnover needs to occur to change the overall behaviour of the skin. However, just like any other routine, our regular skincare can sometimes be deprioritised with the odd night forgetting to remove makeup turning into a full month of mixed products and overall skin confusion.

Plan your routine
One of the most important steps for sticking to your routine is having a clear idea of what is in it! Pick out the products that you will be using based on your skin type that you can stick to. To do this, you may want to read up on what’s best for your skin; read our edit for the best skincare routines for every skin type. For example, if you suffer from acne prone skin, a cleanser containing Salicylic Acid is advised to deeply cleanse pores and regulate oil levels. Whereas if anti-ageing is your main concern, retinol will be your new best friend!
