While your skin can build up a tolerance to topical retinoids resulting in less negative side effects over time, there is no direct mechanism for your skin to become immune to the effects of skin care products.
Our skin, like our bodies, is constantly changing. Hormone changes (more so in females) can be the reason that over time, you may notice you’re not getting the same results with your skincare routine. Also, since the weather is always changing, this can contribute to a change in how your skin care products behave on your skin.
Does this sound familiar? “My products were working so well and now I don’t feel like they are working anymore.“ …
If it feels like your products aren’t working as well, it means that your skin is changing and you must make certain that you are using products that specifically address your skin’s needs.
That’s why I created nine skin types. It is not uncommon for someone to fit perfectly in one, and then find later on, they fit perfectly in another.
Bottom line: If your products aren’t working, it’s time for a change.
