Can your skincare programme plateau?

Sometimes it feels like you’ve met your skincare match when you try a particular product that has everyone asking what you’ve done to look so well. And then, over time you start to feel that it’s not quite working so well anymore. Why does this happen? Does your skincare programme actually plateau?

The short answer is no. The reason why your skin seems no longer to be reacting in such a dramatic way as it did when you first started using a new product, is that with time, you become used to seeing your skin looking so well. Your healthy skin is your new normal. The skincare concern that you were originally addressing, whether it was uneven skin tone or blemishes, has been normalised.

Skin health needs re-assessing at regular intervals that’s why at ELEMIS, we look, we listen, we tune into you. A SkinLab consultation with one of our therapists on a regular basis will help you chart your skin’s behaviour and understand any changes. This 3D skin and facial mapping analysis uses clinical imaging and will give you insight into where your skin needs attention. Combined with the expertise of your ELEMIS therapist, you will receive guidance on your skincare programme and a prescription for products to address your specific needs. You may find that your skin needs a particular programme for one to three months before returning to your regular programme. You may even find that your regular programme works with all its original amazing results after this switch.

Your skin is the largest organ in the body and it constantly reacts to outside stimulae.

 

This is key to understanding changes in the way that your skin behaves. Pollution, hormones, stress, diet and sleep all play their part in skin health and any change in the levels of these factors impacts the look and feel of your skin. The inevitable effects of ageing also mean that each life stage offers new challenges for the skin and what worked before may no longer do so. Thankfully, ELEMIS has a skincare programme to address every skincare concern.
