SKIN CYCLING 101

published 22 MARCH 2024

Skin cycling is a strategic skincare regimen designed to maximize the benefits of active ingredients while minimizing the risk of overexposure and irritation. It operates on a four-night cycle, consisting of specific treatments on designated nights followed by recovery periods. This cyclical approach ensures that your skin receives the targeted care it needs while allowing for essential rest and rejuvenation.

1

EXFOLIANT
Kickstart your skin cycling regimen with exfoliation night. On this night, focus on sloughing away dead skin cells and promoting cellular turnover using exfoliating agents such as alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs). These ingredients help to unclog pores, refine skin texture, and promote a brighter, more even complexion.

The REBIRTH Amniotic Toner is formulated with an AHA blend of lactic and glycolic acids, which gently but effectively exfoliate. The MUTHA Power Exfoliating Serum is made with a heavy-duty dose of lactic acid for deeper exfoliation.
2

RETINOL

Next up is retinoid night, where you integrate retinoids to help stimulate collagen production, improve skin tone and texture, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Retinoids, derived from vitamin A, are known for their ability to help rejuvenate the skin at a cellular level, making them a cornerstone of many anti-aging skincare routines.

3

RECOVERY

After two nights of active treatment, it's time to give your skin a well-deserved break. On recovery nights, focus on gentle, hydrating skincare products that replenish moisture, soothe irritation, and strengthen skin barrier function. Opt for nourishing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and antioxidants to promote hydration and repair.

The MUTHA Oil-to-Gel Cleanser is a gentle cleanser formulated with squalane and aloe vera to moisturize, hydrate, and calm the skin. The Cell Rejuvenating Essence is an ultra-hydrating product with hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, and natural ferments to endorse a healthy skin barrier.

4

RECOVERY (AGAIN!)

This additional recovery night allows your skin to absorb the benefits of the previous treatments while balancing out and preparing for the next cycle. Use this opportunity to pamper your skin with more calming masks, serums, and moisturizers.
TIPS FOR SKIN CYCLING
START SLOW: If you're new to skin cycling or introducing potent active ingredients into your routine, start slowly to allow your skin to acclimate. Begin with lower concentrations and gradually increase frequency and intensity as tolerated.

LISTEN TO YOUR SKIN: Pay attention to how your skin responds to each treatment and adjust your regimen accordingly. If you experience irritation or sensitivity, scale back on active ingredients and focus on gentle, soothing products during recovery nights.

PROTECT YOUR SKIN: Always remember to use sunscreen into your daytime skincare routine. UV and sun protection are especially important when using exfoliating agents and retinoids, as these treatments can increase skin sensitivity to the sun.

STAY CONSISTENT: Consistency is key to seeing results with skin cycling. Stick to your four-night cycling schedule and commit to regular skincare maintenance to achieve long-term improvements in skin texture, tone, and overall health.
