A: You may experience a ‘detox’ effect when you first start using natural skin care products. Your skin may break out and seem a little inflamed. This is normal and part of the healing process. After 2-3 weeks this should pass. Many people expect any cream or lotion to show overnight effects, but you need to be patient and let your skin regenerate in order to see the difference – and the older you get the longer the cycle of regeneration is. On average your skin will start to show the benefits of your new skin care regime after about 4 to 6 weeks.
