Skin cycling: What to know and what skin care to use


Your skin always needs some extra love and attention but during the winter an enhanced routine should be top of mind.

“During the winter, the skin barrier is especially prone to damage. That can show up as tight, dry skin, red patches, stinging or sensitivity,” Dr. Whitney Bowea board-certified dermatologist, told “Good Morning America.”

To put your best face forward, you may have considered a “skin cycling” routine, which includes using a nourishing cleanser nightly, a gentle exfoliator and rotating in both a retinoid night and recovery night.
