We’ve all heard of skincare trends like the six-step regimen, the ten-step Korean routine, glass skin, dolphin skin, and so on. And with the constant introduction of new beauty care products with single active ingredients and a plethora of products to get that flawless skin, we forget to ask ourselves: do we really need all of these? The ’Skinimalism’ trend is one that must be pursued.
Skinimalism is a new, practical, and skin-friendly movement that everyone should embrace. It’s all about the concept of “less is more.” The more layers you add, the less breathable your skin becomes. It’s all about embracing your skin’s natural texture and highlighting your greatest features with fewer and more adaptable skincare and cosmetics products.
The skin is the largest organ in the body, and it, like all other organs, requires proper nutrition. However, with all of the latest trends and FOMO about not using trendy products or active ingredients, we forget that we are doing more harm than good to our skin. To attain healthy, perfect skin, not everyone requires all of the lotions and active components.
To keep our skin healthy, we just need a few basic fundamental things. If your skin requires one or two actives, depending on its condition, do so. Also, try to incorporate multifunctional items into your routine to avoid overburdening your skin with ten different layers of skin care products, which could irritate and inflame your skin. Irritated, inflamed, sensitive skin and a compromised skin barrier might result from blindly following and utilising different products. It can cause additional harm if all of the products and actives are not appropriately stacked or if the improper mix is used.
The solution to all of these problems is to use minimalistic, multipurpose, multi-ingredient skincare and makeup products that accentuate your natural traits and make your skin appear natural rather than filtered and unnatural.
Embrace your skin as it is, nurture it, and take basic care of it while addressing the main cause of your skin concern (which could be hormonal, stress, gut health, or other factors) to see how much more beautiful and healthy it can become.
Until Next Time!
