New in skin care: Skinimalism
What is skin minimalism?
Simply, but absolutely precisely put, it's about using fewer beauty products, less makeup, which leads to less frustration, less spending, and less following of fashionable skincare trends. Focus on products that are good for your skin, so that makeup is fun and does not hide imperfections, and so that you are proud of your skin. Show your imperfections and skin texture with pride in public. Show your pores, blemishes, acne and wrinkles... it's liberating.
What should not be missing in the routine?
Cleanser - thanks to a thorough cleansing you will get rid of makeup, impurities, sweat and so on. Cleansing the skin is the most important step in any routine. After all, without clean skin, all other steps are useless, because the active ingredients of creams, serums and oils do not have a chance to penetrate into the dirty skin. So cleanse, massage and never skip this step.
Toner - balances the pH of the skin, cleanses even small impurities, refreshes and moisturizes the skin. The toner definitely gets the importance it deserves and goes from a recommended step in the skin care routine to an indispensable one.
Serum / cream / oil - to ensure a healthy skin barrier and beautiful skin. To absorb active ingredients, moisturize, irradiate, lock moisture into the skin, etc. You can use all three products or omit one.
SPF - to protect against premature aging and skin cancer caused by UV radiation. Every day in the morning. Always, not just when the sun is shining. Always.
Let’s use less products
This does not mean we have to give up our favorite serum, skin oil, or the product we use for our current skin condition. Be a smart minimalist. There are many ingredients in skin care products that work, or at least promise miracles, but it's scientifically proven that three actually work in slowing the ageing process: vitamin C, retinol and SPF. You can find vitamin C, bakuchiol (natural retinol) and antioxidants in our serums and oils. No need for additional eye cream, eye mask, face mask, scrub... You can use the facial oil for the neck, body and under the eyes to rejuvenate the skin. A facial massage is also a great way to make your skin look more radiant and healthy without many products. All you need is a skin oil.
