You’ve probably heard of no-makeup makeup—the fresh-faced pared-down and natural looking approach to makeup. But now skinfluencers and beauty editors are touting a new way to simplify your day—skinimalmism. And just in case you’re having trouble guessing the derivative of the word—it’s a fusion of minimalism and skin. Translation: the downsizing and simplifying of your skincare routine. Because sometimes, less really can do more.
Gone are the days of a plethora of products, up to 10 complicated steps (you know who you are) and a huge investment in time and money to achieve beautiful skin. Skinimalism is about making life simple by editing your routine down to 2 - 4 essential products that still deliver glowing results. In fact, too many products and over exposure to highly-potent ingredients can overload your skin, block pores, trigger irritation—and even cause damage.
4 reasons to become a skinimalist:
Less time on your routine = more time for you
Less $$$ spent on multiple products = more $$$ for other luxuries
Less effort made = more energy for the rest of your day
Less stress on your skin = more visibly healthy skin
Quality Over Quantity:
While we’re certainly fans of simplifying, the type of products you use make all the difference. Invest in fewer, yet high-quality formulas and ingredients that nurture your skin and achieve real results. Here are the important steps that simply can’t be missed:
Be sure to thoroughly clean your skin day and night with a cleanser that also works to nourish and moisturize without stripping your skin’s protective barrier.
Don’t forget SPF—365 days a year (yes, rain or shine)! A moisturizer--sunscreen combo is always a good option and gives you two steps in one. Genius!
Treat + Nourish
