Now, more than ever, we want everything immediately. Whether it be streaming a new movie or seeing results from new skin-care products, many have become intolerant of waiting.
However, not everything may be sped up! When it comes to introducing new products to your skin-care regime, it typically takes about a month to see results. As we age, this amount of time steadily increases to around 6 weeks in older people.
So, why does it take so long?
Generally speaking, it takes about 28 days for skin cells to turn over, which means that almost all products require at least one month of use before you’ll see results.
For chronic skin conditions and concerns such as acne or darker pigmentation, it’s crucial for old skin cells to turnover to allow new, fresh skin cells to come to the surface. Depending on the severity of your skin concern, it can take up to 3 months to reap the benefits of your new regime as it works its magic on a cellular level.
There are a number of products which produce an immediate effect, such as an at-home mask or a moisturiser. These, you will find, are working on a more superficial level rather than cellular, and they typically just sit on the top of the skin to give a plumper and shinier appearance. This does not mean that they are ineffective – they are merely targeting a different layer of the skin.
The Amaranté Transformation
When using an exfoliant like Amaranté Polish, the natural jojoba polishing beads work to gently remove dead skin cells from the surface to pleasantly retexturize the skin. This is working solely on the skin’s surface and will produce an immediate result – though, these amazing results shall only get better over time.
If you are using a product with vitamin C, such as Amaranté RNR, for the improvement of pigmentation and sun damage, this antioxidant is working at a cellular level and shall require consistency of application and time to see its powerful benefits.
