We share insight into a new trend called Skinimalism. It’s about adopting a minimal approach by letting your skin shine through.
Skinimalism or skin minimalism is a new trend for skin care and beauty. This “less is more” approach to skin care is concerned with buying, wearing and using less, and is backed by dermatologists. Essentially this trend’s philosophy is about appreciating your skin and allowing the focus to be on your skin rather than covering up your perceived flaws.
Focused on simplicity and beneficial ingredients and habits, and quality over quantity.
Becoming a skin care minimalist doesn’t mean never touching your face again. No matter how simple or elaborate your routine is, it has to have three steps to be effective:
Skinimalism, in general, only means “use what your skin needs at the moment”. So the real question there is, “is the best skin care routine minimal, maximal, or somewhere in between?” The answer is, it always depends on you, and your skin.
How to Apply Skinimalism to Your Skin Care
There are many ways to apply skinimalism to your skin care. You can use fewer products or formulas depending on your skin care needs.
We, at Meno-Glow, offer a simplified skin care regime focused on the needs of menopausal skin. It’s designed to be simple and effective, making it easy to apply skinimalism to any skin care routine.
By using Meno-Glow’s skin care products, your skinimalist routine can involve using our gentle wash that contains salicylic acid to sweep away dead skin cells and impurities from the skin; as well as to clear up acne and blackheads. Our skin wash also triples-up as an exfoliator, toner and full body wash. Now you only need to use one product instead of three. After using the wash, your routine should be followed by protection, in the form of a moisturiser – yes, you guessed it, our Meno-Glow Moisturiser and sunscreen (our sun care will be available soon). Three simple steps to having beautiful skin.
Meno-Glow’s face bundle provides a perfect starter kit for a skinimalism beginner. Our beautiful wash, retinol serum and a moisturiser provide an easy-breezy skin care routine that can fit into a travel bag! You can also add Meno-Glow’s miracle eye cream to help reduce any dark circles for that perfect natural look without using too many makeup products.
Your Skin May Benefit From Skinimalism
Most skin types will benefit from less is more; however, it is especially great for troublesome or acne-prone skin. Many people don’t realise that the products we use can cause the skin to get itself in a vicious cycle. Certain ingredients in many skin care products such as moisturisers and toners are notorious for clogging pores and causing breakouts. Some products can also cause excess oil production which can also be the culprit for acne. If someone is struggling with troublesome skin, eliminating products can help to get to the root cause of the skin issues.
Complicated regimens, especially when they include the wrong products, can damage the skin and disrupt its pH balance (Meno-Glow Wash restores the pH balance of your skin). This can leave it susceptible to a host of ailments, including redness, dryness, and acne. With a less complex routine and more focus on using the most beneficial products and ingredients, it can be easier to achieve healthy skin.
What, No Makeup?
Skinamalism, too, can extend beyond basic skin care. Instead of putting a full face of makeup involving foundation, concealer, contouring, highlighting, and a host of other products, skinimalists embrace natural and “no makeup” looks that enhance their features, rather than cover up perceived flaws and imperfections.
Though some may not be able to stand a day without using makeup, it is totally fine. You can still practice skinimalism by applying lightweight formulas. To get that second-skin finish, you have to use lightweight. For the rest of the makeup, you can try a neutral-colored eyeshadow, cream blush, and a tinted lip balm.
So regardless of how you want to apply the skinimalism trend to your skin care, at the end of the day, having healthy skin is what really matters.
