Routine using skincare indirectly means pampering the skin and preventing the skin from performing its natural regeneration function. For example, by using a moisturizer, you indirectly give a signal to the skin that it does not need to remove natural oils that are already in the skin.

Another example, suppose you use a product to exfoliate your skin like AHA or BHA, then you send a signal to your skin not to need to remove dead skin cells and regenerate your skin naturally. Skin fasting it also means allowing the skin to ‘research’ itself on the functions of the skin which has been exposed to many chemicals and to restore its natural functions.
