Skin Cycling: The Viral Trend Even Sensitive Skin Will Love

If you’ve been on social media recently, you’ve probably come across the latest trend in beauty: skin cycling. Unlike wacky viral beauty fads, skin cycling is a process that dermatologists actually agree is good for you. 

New York-based M.D. Whitney Bowe has been behind the four-night routine since 2021, when she developed it as a way to simplify skincare for her patients. The method’s beauty is in its simplicity: after cleansing and before moisturizing, use an exfoliant on night one, Vitamin A on night two, and finish with two nights of repair that focus on hydration. That's it! 

Ideal for most skin types, this streamlined approach of cycling through products prevents irritation and ensures you are getting the most out of your active ingredients. 

To get you started, we are breaking down two foolproof routines curated by our skin experts: 

Dry Skin: 

For dry skin, focus on products that nourish as they refine and rich moisturizers that will pamper newly resurfaced skin.
