What Is Skin Fasting? I Tried it (and I’d Probably Do it Again)
I’ll be the first one to admit that I have a skin-care obsession. My bathroom cabinets are overflowing with new products that promise smoother, glowing and healthier-looking skin. So when I heard about skin fasting, the idea of forgoing my skin-care routine in an effort to “detox my skin,” I was confused. I couldn’t understand how or why giving up my perfectly curated personalized skin-care routine, which includes a long list of treasured serums and an extensive line up of face masks, could help my skin. Yet, while I knew it was going to be hard, I was willing to try it out for myself. To help me understand the reasoning behind skin fasting, I also reached out to Ami Dalal, a certified physician assistant at Schweiger Dermatology Group, who is familiar with the practice. Ahead, read on for my two-week skin-fasting journey and see if I was actually doing right by my skin.
