They say change doesn’t happen overnight, which is especially true when it comes to skincare.

Investing in new skincare products takes time, money + patience. But how long should you give your new products to actually see a difference?

There’s no one answer for how long it takes for new skincare products to work as it can vary between your skin type, skin concerns, skin goals, skincare ingredients, your diet + lifestyle choices + environmental stressors. When it comes to new skincare, it’s ultimately all about consistency + creating a simple skincare ritual that works for your skin, not against it.

It takes approximately 4 weeks for the epidermis (the top layer of the skin) to turnover once.

When you’re introducing new skincare products, changes to your skin will take at least a month. But generally speaking, we recommend waiting at least 6-12 weeks to gauge the effectiveness of your new skincare products. By waiting 3 months, you give your skin 3 cycles of turnover of the epidermis which is especially important when you’re targeting skin concerns like fine lines or pigmentation.

However, if dehydrated + dull skin is getting you down ~ choosing products with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, ceramides + glycerin offer an almost instant glow-up as their hydrating properties help to repair the skin barrier + most people notice quicker results. Adashiko’s Collagen + Noni Gel, Collagen Hydra+ Gold Elixir + Collagen Ceramide+ Body Serum are firm favs for both their instant + long-lasting skin-nourishing benefits.

For a skincare routine to be truly effective, it's essential to understand how the products interact with each other.

The synergy between different ingredients can enhance their effectiveness or, conversely, diminish their benefits if not paired correctly. Adashiko products are consciously formulated to work harmoniously together, ensuring that each product complements + enhances the effects of the others.

Overall, if you use your new skincare products correctly + consistently, you should be able to see noticeable changes in about 3 months. But remember ~ it’s crucial to listen to your skin. If you experience an instant adverse reaction, such as redness, itching, or burning, discontinue use of the product right away + consult a dermatologist if necessary.

Remember, patience + consistency are key. Your skin’s journey is unique ~ with the right products + routine, beautiful, healthy skin is within your reach + it’s absolutely worth the wait.
