    My friend Eric and me! Contrary to popular belief, skin is not just skin. Dermatologists even qualify different skin types on a scale known as the Fitzpatrick scale; different types denote different susceptibilities to skin diseases, treatment plans and options. In a prior interview of mine with African-American dermatologist Dr. Rosemarie Ingleton, M.D., she informed…

    As someone with sallow skin and a fear of tanning (too risky!), it’s quite tempting to just dunk myself in a vat of liquid gold and tanning lotions, and just hope for the best. What my skin really needs in order to get a healthy golden glow is a mixture of exfoliation, clean skin habits,…

    I change, or rather, rotate, my skin care products every few days. Since I am using Retin A, it makes me flake sometimes, so when I need to take a break, I will swap out products for a few nights until the dryness has subsided. Otherwise, I will switch once I run out of sometime but don’t feel like it’s been performing as well.

    I will give a product about 30 – 50 days to see if it’s “doing what it is suppose to do”. You can’t expect an overnight change (but wouldn’t it be nice?). Love your blog. So much information, and fun to read.

    For me, there isn’t a set time. I will change around products based on my skin’s needs and the weather. I have several moisturizers and sunscreens that I rotate if my skin is drier or needs more hydration. Some of my serums that are super-lightweight, I use in warmer months. And sometimes, I’ll just keep using the same products for several months, but will just add a few drops of rose hip seed oil to my regime if I need added moisture.

  5. Tiffany Martin says:

    I change small parts of my routine (different cleansers) daily, but the important parts (vit c, retinol) only when they run out and then only if I didn’t LOVE it. Also, I do asian skincare so I have about 7-9 steps in my skincare routine.

  6. Hannah says:

    I rotate my products often every few weeks just because I get bored easily! But I don’t toss them out until I use them up to get my money worth.

  7. AmberB says:

    Whenever I finish my current product I like to look around and see what else is available. I, like most women, am constantly on the look out for the next miracle product.

  8. Rashmi Singh says:

    I give usually 2-3 months for a product to start showing some results unless it breaks me out or causes an allergic reaction. I usually alternate wonderful products (like vit C serum and retinol serum) in cycles of 2 months !

  9. Melissa Backus says:

    I only change skincare items when I need something different….if I need an acne treatment, a heavier moisturizer, a mask for something specific. I have reactive skin that can get very out of control very fast if I try too many things!

  10. M.J. Moore says:

    I always change routines when the seasons indicate it’s time- but most of the time I’m playing around with different combinations. Often when I think I’ve got it right, my skin will get all sensitized and I’ll have to adjust :P

  11. Rochelle says:

    I am 51 and have been searching for the fountain of youth for the last 30 years; alas, I fear I will rotate and change for all of my days ;-)

  12. Cecilia says:

    My routine usually goes as follows:
    Gentle cleanser with clarisonic
    Toner with 2% salicylic acid
    SkinCeuticals C E Feluric and PTR sunscreen at day
    Tretinoin 0.05 at night

    When I get too dried because of the tretinoin, I use Replenix Power of Three and cut off the salicilyc acid. Also, in winter, I carry with me Eucerin aquaphor which is great for flaky skin.

    At the end, I think skin changes with weather, hormones and the products you’re using. I think you should change your routine at the first sign of irritation. Unless I’m starting a new product, inflammation, redness and flakiness are a clear sign something must be changed.
