Ever feel overwhelmed with the seemingly never-ending skincare products you “should” be using? Some people swear by their 15-step morning skincare regime…but, let’s face it, it’s not for everyone.
If you’re nodding in agreement, you may already be a skinimalist at heart – and it turns out you could be on to something. Excessive skincare regimes can leave your skin barrier vulnerable, as well as increasing redness and sometimes even causing breakouts. Skinimalism is here to help…
What is Skinimalism?
Skinimalism is the new glow up!. Gone are the days of glorified plastered on make-up; more and more people are embracing "slow beauty" to let their natural skin texture shine. Not only is skinimalism a breath of fresh air for your skin, it is also refreshingly simple and sustainable.
It’s all about achieving clean, healthy and glowing skin, but with a minimal amount of products. Skinimalism prioritizes skin health and lets your natural beauty shine through.
What are the steps of a skinimalist routine?
The important bit is working out which parts of your routine you should stick with and which can be dropped. First and foremost, the mantra ‘cleanse and protect’ should remain on your radar. That means ensuring you clean your skin at the start and end of each day.
Then, protection: get into the habit of wearing sunscreen each and every single day, even when it's not sunny out. Finally, incorporate a treatment product, but only if your skin needs one – and if it does then it’s best to use a hardworking ingredient that targets multiple concerns at once.
Skinimalism can save money, save your skin, and save you from being overwhelmed by products. However, like anything else in life...the biggest key is consistency.
Slow down, and think of skin care as self-care!
