is it bad to always switch up your routine?

Eversince i started my skincare focused account, i have been using different products almost every 2-3 weeks and since i tend to open all products that was sent due to reviews and testaments, i happend to not have a strict routine to follow because i feel like i should use all products before they expire (especially those i like) on a normal basis i use different products from morning to night and i also use different products per day. Although i have no unwanted irritations or some sort, is it a bad thing? Will it create a long term damage to my skin? PS: I dont try out a product for only 2-3 weeks, what i mean is i incorporate new ones every 2-3 weeks, i think people are misinterpreted my point. Ofc i use them longer, i patch test for 2 days, use it alone for a week RELIGIOUSLY, another week with my usual items then identify changes for another week, i still continuously use them but with additional products

two weeks is really short tbh. I wouldn't say it is super bad. if your skin is ok with it and doesn't get stressed or overwhelmed then it's ok I guess... From experience tho, it can be a bit counterproductive and a bit of a waste. Because when you switch too often you don't even get the most of the products you are using. So there is no point imo. EDIT: there are products THO, that are easily switchable: moisturizers, suncreens...

hmm i actually dont use them for only 2 weeks but i do incorporate new items every 2 weeks like a new spf, lip care, masks etc😅 well i do agree with not being able to see long tern results. also opening new products can be a waste if you only use it yourself but in my case i have my mom and 3 other cousins which use my products for personal use😅

As long as your skin isn't getting irritated I don't think it's a particularly bad thing. But you're not going to be getting the best from your products. It takes time for your products to work and for you to notice the results and by constantly switching your routine you are not giving the products a chance to do their work.

I wouldn't say it's bad... but I don't think 2-3 weeks is enough time to see the results of the product :). also it could cause potential irritation if you introduce a lot of new products at once. if your skin can handle it it should be okay! :)

hi! i actually also have these kind of questions or concerns, since the deadlines are coming real soon, but the products are not yet arriving due to some delays and yep also bec they’re from the overseas, what do guys do to still come back or to stick up again to your original routine by also considering what our skin could feel after using new the products?
