How long does a new skincare regimen to work? The short answer is we are talking about weeks not days, but it really depends on what the condition is that you are treating. It depends on whether you are treating complexion issues like acne, or do you really want to achieve facial rejuvenation with smoother skin, more even color skin, and brighter skin. This is a perfect example of when patience is a virtue; this is a process of evolution not revolution. If you are not realistic in your expectations you are just going to go from product to product. How many of you are guilty of tossing a product after three days just because you did not see the results that you wanted?
Let’s talk first about complexion problems and acne. When you are using a new regimen, it has to take at least a week to see any meaningful results, even with the best products. When we talk about facial rejuvenation and a brighter, more even colored, lustrous skin, it really has to take two, three or even four weeks. If you are not patient you are going to be disappointed. There are a lot of very good products out there but there are no miracle products out there.
So be patient, use the products regularly and give them a couple of weeks to avoid frustration and to have nicer skin.
