    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.

  • Janice

    I only switch products when I feel like my skin needs something different but rarely switch brands.

  • Kimberly

    I change my skin products about every 3 months.

  • jese anderson

    I change my routine every summer and winter

  • Rochelle

    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 😉

  • I change my skin care products when I run out!

  • Tracey

    I change as my needs change with a few core pieces, ie: Retinol

  • M.J. Moore

    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 😛

  • Melissa Backus

    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!

  • Rashmi Singh

    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 !

  • AmberB

    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.

  • Domniki Sarri

    I change my skin products every 6 months!

  • Hannah

    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.

  • Tanya Jung

    I change my routine based on the weather because my skin is very sensitive to changes!

  • 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.

  • Diana Devlin

    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.

  • Laura Royal

    Usually every month I rotate my products

  • latanya

    about 3 months

  • Lynda F

    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.

  • I usually use the whole bottle until I’m done with it so I dont waste good product.

  • Susan Stokes

    I Use Origins And Mix it up a little with the Seasons…Right now I am Using their VitaZing Line…Looking for a B&B or C&C … I think…So bottom line is not at all …It works for me…BTW What a Beautiful Black Opal Lipstick color…Thanks for The Generous Giveaway…I read and learn so much from Your NewsLetters …Thank you…Susan

  • Jennifer F

    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.
