What is Skin Fasting and Should You Try It?

When it comes to skincare, new trends and hacks are always emerging. One that has gotten quite the attention in the last few years was skin fasting, which is the opposite of the 10-step Korean skincare routine. This trend focuses on the “less is more approach”, giving the skin time to breathe without being slathered on with multiple active ingredients every single day.


Read on as our aesthetic clinic in Singapore dives a little deeper into skin fasting, its potential benefits and drawbacks, and who should/shouldn’t try it.


What is skin fasting?


Skin fasting refers to the practice of abstaining from applying any skin care product on your skin or forgoing your typical skincare routine for a specified period. The idea behind it is that minimizing skincare or eliminating certain products allows the skin to breathe or reset itself and possibly strengthen the skin barrier.

It is worth knowing that there are no strict rules in skin fasting. It can be as simple as giving up your face moisturizer for one to two nights or cutting back on the number of serums or acids you use a day. Skin fasting can also be as in-depth or aggressive as forgoing all products for a few days.


What are the potential benefits of skin fasting?


One main benefit of skin fasting is that it simplifies your routine and saves you money from buying products you don’t necessarily need. Other potential benefits include: 

  • May help restore the skin barrier – minimizing your routine or eliminating certain products can allow the skin barrier or acid mantle to recalibrate and strengthen.
  • Helps balance sebum production – taking a break from certain formulas may help the skin adjust or regulate its sebum production and potentially contribute to a balanced complexion.  
  • May lead to reduced sensitivity– skin fasting, especially when you have sensitive skin, lets you recover from ingredients that may contribute to redness and sensitivity. 

Prevents product overload – abstaining from certain formulas, especially those that contain lots of active ingredients, can prevent overload that can contribute to concerns such as clogged pores, breakouts, and other adverse reactions.
