Are You Skin Cycling Yet? Here’s What You Need to Know.

Skin Cycling has been going viral on TikTok lately (like 90 million views viral) and we just had to jump in to help you take the best care of your skin you possibly can—without spending a fortune. After all, affordable and #RealDealSkincare has kind of been our thing since 1969!

What is Skin Cycling?

Skin Cycling, a term coined by dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe, is a four-night skin care regimen that you cycle through to care for your skin. The purpose is two-fold:

1.To get you into the habit of caring for your skin and

2.To strengthen and nourish your skin (Spoiler alert: Cococare 100% Vitamin E Oil is literally made for that!)

Basically, it goes like this, night 1 is for exfoliation, night 2 is for retinoids and nights 3 and 4 are for hydration and repair. Nights 3 and 4 are going to be the most important nights for your Skin Cycling routine as they are your recovery nights.

Why do your Skin Cycling routine at night? Because retinol can make your skin more sensitive to the rays of the sun. And nighttime is when your skin barrier switches from “protect” mode to “repair” mode to recover from the day’s stressors.

The Benefits of Adding Vitamin E to Your Skin Cycling Routine

Skin Cycling can be easy to do and beneficial for your skin but it’s going to be those last two nights that are going to strengthen and nourish your skin the most! That’s where Cococare 100% Vitamin E Oil comes in.

Since nights 1 and 2 are focused on exfoliation and retinol, they can cause dryness and damage to your skin’s barrier if it’s not properly cared for afterward. Cococare 100% Vitamin E Oil is the best option for your skin to benefit the MOST during nights 3 and 4.

Not only does Vitamin E help your body create collagen, but it also helps protect your skin cells from damage as well as locking in moisture. Here’s a longer post on all the benefits of Vitamin E, but the quick facts are:

●It seals in moisture

●It acts as an antioxidant

●It smooths your skin

Skin Cycling Cheat Sheet!

In the meantime, if you plan on trying Skin Cycling, here’s a cheat sheet to get you started:

Night 1: Cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize. Even with recovery days, you need to hydrate your skin.

Night 2: Cleanse, moisturize any dry areas, and then apply a pea-sized amount of retinol (less is more!) If you are new to retinol, do a sensitivity test first. If your skin feels tight after using retinol, you should still moisturize with Vitamin E on those days.

Nights 3 & 4: Cleanse and moisturize, layering in Cococare 100% Vitamin E Oil as either a spot treatment or mixing it with your moisturizer for all-over application.

Why add Cococare 100% Vitamin E Oil to your Skin Cycling routine? Because all Vitamin E oils are not created equal. Cococare’s Vitamin E is #RealDealSkincare, non-GMO, gluten and soy free. Nourishing skin care should not cost a fortune, and neither should Skin Cycling. Priced at $7.25 or less at
