As you probably know, it is advisable to change shampoo or day cream regularly. But for what? Is this information true or just an urban legend of beauty? We conduct the survey to find out if you need to change your beauty routine regularly…
You have to adapt your beauty routine to the change of seasons: TRUE
Throughout the year, the weather conditions and the needs of your skin change. That’s why it makes perfect sense to change your beauty routine over the seasons. Indeed, in winter, your skin needs greater hydration. In summer, it should benefit from better sun protection for example. And the same goes for your hair. Do not hesitate to adapt your beauty routine for skin and hair over the seasons by meeting the needs of the latter.
Our skin doesn’t like change: TRUE
It is said that you need to change your facial care regularly, as your skin may get tired and the cream may no longer work effectively. It’s not true. Your skin does not like change and therefore needs regularity. A new product or new ingredients can disrupt your skin’s habits and your skin may react by producing more sebum, becoming drier or revealing pretty pimples or blackheads. And this phenomenon could also make you change your routine when it may only be a reaction to the change itself rather than the product you use.
Skin and hair get used to the active ingredients contained in beauty products: FALSE
If you drink 2 liters of water a day, you are providing the amount of water your body needs to survive and function properly. If you had to increase your water intake every time, because your body was getting used to it… You wouldn’t have left the hostel! And it’s the same with skincare and cosmetics. If an active ingredient works on your skin, if a product suits you perfectly, your skin will not suddenly decide that it is no longer enough. Of course, the needs of the latter can evolve, according to the seasons as mentioned above, but also with age, hormonal changes, diet, etc … In this case, it may be advisable to change your beauty routine and therefore, change skin care.
It takes at least 4 weeks before you see the results of a new face cream: TRUE
The moisturizing active ingredients contained in your facials take about 4 weeks to work. And it’s even longer for other assets! Indeed, the molecules contained in your products will act little by little by taking their time. This means that if you do not observe any change or result during the first few weeks of use, it is completely normal. It is therefore not advisable to change cosmetics too often, because you would not give the active ingredients time to show you what they are capable of. Obviously, some benefits are observed much more quickly. In the case of radiance and smoothing creams for example. They work in less than 24 hours because they attack the surface of the skin and not the dermis.
If a product does not seem to suit you, you must continue to use it anyway: FALSE
If we assume that the active ingredients contained in a cream or serum can take between 6 and 12 months sometimes to be felt, this is not a reason to persist in using a product that does not suit you. For example, you may develop an allergy to an ingredient, not get enough hydration, or hate the smell of your new moisturizer. In this case, do not hesitate to change it!
Always using the same shampoo makes the hair grease: FALSE
Just like for your skin, using a shampoo adapted to your needs can absolutely not create problems. Unless you do not respect seasonal changes for example. Indeed, it is quite possible that your hair is drier in summer or winter. The use of dry hair shampoo can then become a habit. However, if the dryness of your hair is seasonal, the use of this type of shampoo can result in oily hair more quickly … Which is a simple result of using the wrong product at the wrong time. If you’ve found THE perfect shampoo for your hair, don’t change it! Just think about adapting your care, like a ser.Um anti-breakage or a nourishing mask, over the seasons and the requirements of your hair …
