Steps involved Abstain from skincare products to fast your skin
During skin fasting, you may choose to not skip basic skincare products like cleansers and sunscreen . This is because sun damage is real and sunscreen reduces that. However, abstain from products like serums, moisturizers, and other creams that are part of your routine. Wash your face at night, tap it dry, and repeat the same routine daily for a few days to see results.
Benefits What are the benefits of this new trend?
When you stop using skincare products, your skin produces natural oils to keep it soft and supple. Skin fasting also lets the skin heal if it has a negative reaction to any product. This means, if you notice acne breakouts or excessive drying after using certain products, it is best to abstain from skincare products for a few days to reset the skin.
Tips Few tips to ensure that you benefit from skin fasting
Drink enough water to help your skin rejuvenate. At night, regulate the room temperature and humidity levels especially if you're living in a dry region. Don't make your skin fast if you have undergone skin peeling. If you use many products as part of your routine, detox once a month or if you're on the minimal end, consider skin fasting once in two months.
Note Skin fasting isn't for all; know who should avoid this
If your skin has begun to show signs of aging, you should avoid fasting your skin. This is because, when your skin ages, it is due to reduced collagen production and elasticity. Depriving your skin of essential skincare products will further accelerate the aging process and do more harm than good. So are you hopping on this trend? Let us know!
