According to Oprah Winfrey's very own facialist, the best thing to do when it comes to skincare is to change up the products and skincare routine frequently. Now, this woman, Jennifer Brodeur, is Canadian, but Oprah Winfrey has been flying her into the U.S. for years, and as it turns out so has Michelle Obama. If she is good enough for those two ladies, it is safe to assume any woman who loves a skincare routine will be happy take her advice.

The idea behind the skin-care expert's recommendation is that it is good to keep surprising the skin. Similar to when it comes to a workout regimen, it is always advised to change things up and not let the skin get used to a routine. No personal trainer will tell their clients to do squats every single day to grow a booty, and according to Jennifer Brodeur, the skin also needs the challenge of changing products and procedures.
As reported by Allure, the celebrity facialist asks her clients to stop using any skincare products for two weeks, and then gradually add products that are needed for healthy, glowy skin. Once a new skincare routine is established, Brodeur will have her clients change their skincare products and routines as often as every two weeks, and it seems to be working wonders looking at the glowing faces of Oprah and Michelle Obama!
It might sound a bit extravagant to change skincare products every two weeks, after all, most cosmetics and beauty products are not cheap. In this case, what many facialists say is that the focus should be on changing skincare products and routines with the seasons. This makes a lot of sense, as the skin will naturally react differently to humidity and heat in summer, compared to a cold, windy winters day. For example, in summer the moisturizer might need to be of a lighter texture, whereas in winter most skin types are screaming for moisture and hydration.
It is important to remember that everyone's skin is unique, and what works for one person might not work for another. When it comes to changes in skincare products or routines, it is advised to talk to a dermatologist or facialist first who can recommend something customized to each person's needs.
