Skin cycling for beginners

"Skin cycling". It's approved by leading skin experts and dermatologists, so you just know it's going to be good! But what is it exactly? It's simple. Skin cycling is a night-time routine that focusses on using specific active ingredients, on certain days. For example, active ingredients are used for two nights in a row, followed by two nights of recovery, and then repeating the routine as a consistent cycle.

It's a great way to ensure you're kicking your skin goals and keeping your skin barrier in-tact, rather than over-burdening your skin with actives (which can cause more harm than good!). Here's what skin cycling would look like, using RAWKANVAS products.
