If you’re curious about the rumours about the possibility for your skin to get too used to a product or you have been noticing lately that your skincare routine isn’t providing you that extra glow that they used to, here's an answer and all you need to know about before you go switching out all your products.
Can your skin get used to products?
The answer is your skin sorts of gets used to your skincare products but is not really addicted to them. Your body usually desensitises to a certain drug, making it ineffective—which can technically happen, but it's pretty uncommon with skincare since it usually occurs with topical medications or steroids. At least what you can do is you don’t have to replace an entirely new routine.
But then the next question is: Why isn’t your skincare working like it used to? Here are some reasons why your skin is no longer showing signs of improvement
- Internal & external factors
These factors such as seasonal changes, hormone imbalances, sebum production, the food you’ve been consuming, or even your lifestyle can affect your skin and how it reacts to your products.
- Skin changes over time
Environment and climate can change how our skin interacts with specific products and ingredients. This is the reason why we recommend switching up your skincare with the seasons.
- Skincare products are expired or inactive
While your skin can respond differently to certain ingredients, it's important to take a look at the products you're using. Ineffective skincare may be a result of the product, not the skin. One thing to note is making sure you aren't using expired skincare or accidentally rendering your products ineffective.
There are a lot of possible reasons why an ingredient has lost its peak over time. Your skin may not be showing huge improvement as it did in the past, but keep in mind that the best skincare is the one that protects and maintains your skin to help it function at its best.
