How Long Does it Take for a Skincare Ingredient to Work? Consistence is Key
by WISHCOMPANY INC on Sep 16, 2021
Get the know the ingredients and their set of benefitsEach ingredient usually has its own set of benefits. For example, niacinamide, the jack of all trades in skincare has multiple benefits such as anti-inflammatory, skin barrier-strengthening, brightening, and also antioxidant. Depending on the intended benefit, you may feel the results at different times. For their skin-barrier strengthening benefits may be visible in a matter of 2 weeks. Meanwhile, for their brightening effect, it may only be visible after 8 weeks of consistent use. The same rule applies to other ingredients, so we will break them down depending on the intended function of the ingredient.
Factors that may cause variationsAll these times mentioned above aren’t absolute (all written in ranges) and may vary from person to person depending on several factors, such as:
- 1. The degree of every skin issue
- 2. The consistency or frequency of use
- 3. The formulation of the products
