What Is Skin Cycling + Why Don’t I Need It?

What Is Skin Cycling + Why Don’t I Need It?

Updated on 3rd December 2023 at 1:24 pm

Certified organic plant power gives gentle yet powerful results, every day of the week.

With plant powered skincare, there is no need to compromise on results. Or take up the Tik Tok-shared trend of skin cycling; first imagined by dermatologist, Dr. Whitney Bowe.

We’re behind feeding your skin with what it needs each day to glow—without the idea of needing a day off to avoid irritation.

Why Don’t I Need Skin Cycling?

The thought behind ‘skin cycling’ is to seperate days of applying active ingredients, with days of rest + hydration only. Akin to exercise interval training for your body.

It’s important to note that potent nonorganic formulations can necessitate rest days for the skin to avoid overuse, overstimulation—and to ultimately avoid irritation.

Which is why we don’t subscribe to this trend.

A certified organic active skincare routine is for everyday.

Fuelled by plant power, we believe in keeping your skin youthful with twice daily layers of Alpha Hydroxy Acids, superfruits, anti aging vitamins, retinol alternatives, and essential fatty acids to build collagen production + rebuild the skin, naturally.

Without needing a day off.

Fight WrinklesNot Your Skin

Levelling out fine lines + wrinkles is our most sought-after skin goal. With equal importance is the desire to source anti aging botanical actives.

To accomplish this, we’re working against that stat of losing 1% of naturally produced collagen each year from our mid twenties on. Collagen is a protein famed for giving our skin its firmness. And its counterpart, elastin, is for giving our skin its bounce.

The natural decline in producing these proteins also carries over to natural skin oils and lipids. Without the ability to make what we need naturally, our skin becomes thinner and more fragile.

Enter fine lines and wrinkles, deep creasing, and the more pronounced stages of aging: sagging, thinning, rough and patchy skin; visible in mature skin.

There is positive news.

As your skin declines in creating what it needs to glow—you can empower yourself. And feed your skin what it has lost throughout the day + with what it needs to replenish + rejuvenate overnight.

Let us step you through this natural anti aging skincare ritual—gentle + powerful enough for everyday replenishment.

An Organic Active PM Skin Care Ritual

Step One | Exfoliate

Noni Night AHA Resurfacing Serum

Dead skin cells that gather on your skin’s surface equate to dull skin. Dead cellular matter, as its often referred to, weighs down the skin and stops younger, fresher skin cells from being seen.

Resurfacing is a major component of an anti aging skincare routine. A step as equal as treating, protecting + nourishing.

Imagine clearing the old to make way for the new.

We believe in the power of plants to take away what is redundant with gentle effectiveness. And we can do this with Alpha hydroxy acids from super fruits.

Harsh chemically-derived skin peels can injure the precious acid mantle. AKA the outermost layer of our skin barrier. There is a need to balance removal of the old while maintaining the pH balance of your skin.

This is reason our nightly go-to serum is step one in this routine. To resurface the skin without harsh chemicals or pH imbalance, and add a boost of antioxidant and moisture-locking protection at the same time.

The naturally occurring AHAs in our Noni Night AHA Resurfacing Serum promote a clearer, brighter and smother-looking complexion overnight. Thanks to Willow Bark, Lemon Peel and Caviar Lime, Hyaluronic Acid + Tonka Bean.

Ideal For: 

  • Fine lines + aging skin

  • Uneven skin texture

  • Dull skin

What It Does:

  • Minimizes the appearance of pores

Step Two | Retin-alt

Plant Stem Cell Retinol Alternative Serum + Plant Stem Cell Retinol Alternative Moisturizer

To be in front of the aging process, you need to do two things. One: address + treat what is presenting—and two: protect you skin from future wrinkles from being created.

And to do that you need retinol alternatives.

We love that you can obtain the results of traditional retinol without chemicals, parabens, toxins, added-nasties, irritation or sun sensitivity. What we call, the limitations of retinol.

For this we praise Bakuchiol as it behaves like retinol, but isn’t made from Vitamin A. We’re lovers of the flowering babchi plant it’s derived from, as it’s touted as one of the best retinol alternatives to boost cell regeneration + fight fine lines.

We also grateful for Alfalfa with a long, but humble list, of anti aging benefits. We adore its innate skin tone + firming qualities and to keep skin healthy.

All the benefits, without the drama of irritation.

For true age protection we created our daily duo to smooth wrinkles and firm the skin; powered by a 5% blend of retinol alternatives: Bakuchiol, Alfalfa Extract + Acai Stem Cells. To name just a few power ingredients. 

Our Plant Stem Cell Retinol Alternative Serum was made to ultimately strengthen the skin to smooth, firm and level out fine lines + wrinkles, with added hydration benefits for dry skin. Double up your power by following it with our Plant Stem Cell Retinol Alternative Moisturizer to firm and maintain hydrated skin, under the guise of a daily moisturizing staple.

Apply the duo one after the other (serum then moisturizer) AM + PM daily after cleansing + misting, and before face oil + SPF. It’s a must in an organic anti aging skincare ritual.

Both Are Ideal For:

  • Aging + sagging skin

  • Fine lines + wrinkles

  • Skin firmness

  • Dry + lack-lustre skin

  • Sensitive skin. 

What They Do:

  • Firm + strengthen the skin

  • Smooth the appearance of fine lines + wrinkles

  • Soften + brighten for a more even skin tone

  • Nourish + strengthen

  • Deeply hydrate without irritating the skin.

Step Three | Nourish

Noni Glow Face Oil

Get brighter skin by finishing your skincare routine with a face oil.

We love it to transform dull skin into glowing skin, in a flash.

Oil blends are designed to synergize with your natural skin oils and magnify their innate power—to maintain balanced water levels and oil flow within the skin. They’re known to add moisture and seal hydration while assisting to maintain your protective skin barrier.

Hello to talked-about skin elasticity + bounce!

Our skin is made from both oil and water, and we need both of these elements in our skin care routine. After layering your serums and moisturizer, the need for face oil is even greater: to help your skin to retain its water content and stop water loss throughout your day.

Imagine plump glowing skin from topped-up water levels. The look that well-rested, and well-nourished skin naturally gives. It’s a step not to be missed.

For this we love our luxe blend of vitamin-rich oils to visibly nourish, illuminate and smooth uneven skin texture. They’re a rich source of antioxidants + essential fatty acids thanks to Noni Extract, Rosehip Oil, Jojoba Oil + Sunflower Oil.

Apply as the last step in your skincare routine and before SPF in the AM, or before the overnight mask in the PM.

Ideal For:

  • Dry skin

  • Aging skin

  • Sensitive skin

  • Combination skin

  • Scarring.

What It Does: 

  • Softens visual effects of sun damage + scarring

  • Brightens + evens skin tone for healthy glow

  • Skin hydration for very dry skin

  • Strengthens the skin + minimizes fine lines + wrinkles

  • Supports healthy skin cell rejuvenation.

Eye Additions

Noni Radiant Eye Oil + Berry Bright Vitamin C Eye Cream

Don’t forget your eyes. This duo is loaded in Vitamin C and Kahai Oil which is a natural retinol.

Layer eye oils first, then eye creams second to support the delicate tissue around your eyes.

We love that our eye oil addresses dark circles + tired puffy skin. And our eye cream helps to boost collagen production and naturally support this revered tissue thanks to the Vitamin C rich source of Kakadu Plum.

Sensitive Skin

Our skin is our body’s largest organ, and we believe we must feed it with same nourishment we do our body.

With organic anti aging skin care.

What you put on your skin soaks in, so we choose organic. And with plant powered skincare products, you can also get the results you crave—every day.

Many of our treasured customers come to us because they have skin sensitivity. We’ve sourced safe retinol alternatives, not made from Vitamin A, that can be used 24/7 with none of the irritation. 

Traditional retinols have always been harsh on my sensitive skin, and when I was pregnant with my three boys, I had a hard time finding a healthy, natural option that gave me the results I needed. I’m so proud to bring you ones that finally do.” – Miranda  

So much so that board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Claire Wolinsky appreciates our retinol alternatives as they’re “gentle to use twice a day.”
