Can a skincare routine stop working? The simple answer is, no. Your skin doesn’t build up an immunity to skincare products over time. They don’t just one day decide they aren’t going to work anymore. This is because there is no direct mechanism for your skin to become immune to the effects of products.
How long does it take to see if a skincare routine is working? A good skincare regimen is followed daily. Results are best noticed after 28 days of following your routine because this is how long it takes for new skin cells to form. Around four months after diligently following your routine, you should notice a change in your skin.
How long should you use a skincare product to see results? As a general rule of thumb, you should only start to see real changes in your skin after between one to three months of consistent use of a skincare product.
