How Long Before I See Results With My New Skin Products?

We all want immediate gratification when it comes to our skin, especially when we’ve just started a new skin care routine. But it can truly take at least 6-8 weeks before you can see the real change and improvements in the skin, so you must stay patient and give them time to work their magic.

When should you NOT wait 6-8 weeks?

If the new products are…

– causing redness and irritation (and getting worse)

– making your skin excessively dry

-making your skin excessively oily

– causing acne breakouts that last longer than three weeks

-stinging when the products shouldn’t  (Read: When is it okay for my skin care products to tingle?)

Discontinue use because you are probably using products that aren’t right for your skin type or using products that have low-quality skin care ingredients. Check out our list of ingredients to avoid.

As with any skin care product, it should always feel just right. Not harsh, not drying, not greasy, not oily, not heavy. When it works for your skin, you’ll know it. You must learn to listen to your skin.
