Our Guide to Skinimalism
Have you heard of skinimalism?
When it comes to skincare, many people think the more products and active ingredients they use, the better their skin will get.
You may have seen Instagram photos of beautifully stocked shelves with lots of trendy skincare products. But what you don't always see on social media are the potential side effects of misusing some of these trendy skincare products, including overloading on powerful active ingredients. Excessive skincare routines can actually leave behind a trail of destruction, in the form of a compromised skin barrier, redness, irritation, and in some cases acne.
This is where skinimalism comes in. Skinimalism basically means stripping back of your skincare routines in favour of a more minimalist approach.
Benefits of skinimalism:
- Avoids conflicting ingredients
- Minimizes potential irritation
- Saves time and money
- Better for the environment and for your skin
Here is our guide to an effective skinimalism routine:
Step 1 - Toner
Brightens, tones and softens your complexion, while retaining moisture in your skin and providing a deep hydration.
Step 2 - Facial oil
Nourishes your skin and helps promote collagen production. It also locks in moisture and helps your skin remain hydrated for hours. Moreover, facial oil generally provides natural antioxidants, vitamins and Fatty Acids to give you a healthy, glowing skin.
Step 3 - Jade Roller
Helps to reduce puffiness and firms your skin. The roller also helps the skin absorb nutrients and ingredients when applying a mask, oil, or moisturizer.
