Skin cycling: what you need to know and which skincare to use


Your skin always needs a little extra love and attention, but during the winter an improved routine should be top of mind.

“During the winter, the skin barrier is particularly susceptible to damage, which can manifest in the form of tight, dry skin, redness, stinging or sensitivity,” said Dr. Whitney Bowe, a board-certified dermatologist, told “Good Morning America.”

To show your best side, you may have considered a “skin cycling” routine, where you use a nourishing cleanser every night, a gentle exfoliator, and rotate into both a retinoid night and a recovery night.
