Think 10 days isn't enough to truly see results? Well, scroll down to find out what will happen to your skin in those 10 quick days!


Days 1-3: Your Skin Adjusts to the Products

In the first few days, if you feel like you aren't seeing much changes happening to your skin, don’t worry because it’s still adjusting to the new products. Integrating new products into a skincare routine takes time. But soon, your skin will respond in a positive way, especially if the products you are using are tailored to your specific skin type!

Days 4-6: Your Skin Feels Softer and Hydrated

This is when your skin will start to feel more hydrated. It has finally started to adjust to the products and is reaping the benefits! This is also when you'll usually see the most difference between your “old” skin and your “new” skin.

Days 7-8: There's a Light Bounce to Your Skin

If your face has a soft, pillowy texture, that means it’s becoming more balanced! You're on the road to a brighter, clearer complexion as your skin produces less oil and balances out the appearance of large pores and uneven texture. Your skin will look more radiant and smooth as the products go deep within the skin’s surface to restore and rejuvenate the cells.

Days 9-10: You're On Your Way to Brighter, Glowing Skin

Congratulations! You now have hydrated and pillowy-soft skin! But it gets better because this is the time when your skin starts preparing for a cell turnover which will make your complexion even more brighter, clearer, and radiant! If it only takes 10 days to see amazing results, imagine what it would look like with continued use.
