In this day and age, it can be easy to get caught up in all of the new and trendy skincare products being talked about all over social media.
While it may be fun experimenting with different products for our skin and purchasing the things we see gaining popularity online, I think that a lot of us forget just how negative and wasteful that process and mentality can be.
The idea that we go out and carelessly buy a bunch of the hottest serums, moisturizers, or eye creams on the market, rather than researching products that work the best for our skin is why so many are left unsatisfied with how their skin looks.
Minimalism is the antithesis of this, opposes all ideas of over indulgence, and can be applied to how we think about skincare as well. Curating a minimalist skincare routine could be the very thing that is missing from your daily skincare, and you may realize that when you choose your products carefully and with intention, your skin will certainly thank you!
Minimalism Can Look Like…
Cutting down on the amount of products that you use on your face. In a lot of ways, literally minimizing how much you apply to your skin could make a huge difference for you if you are experiencing problems such as clogged pores or excessive oiliness.
The reality is that just because you see influencers on social media piling 4 serums plus a moisturizer onto their face does not mean that the same technique will work for you and the problems that your skin has.
Using products that offer multiple benefits in one. This could look like a makeup remover that also exfoliates while it removes, or even a foundation that has SPF built into it. The less complicated, the better!
Switching out your multi-step routine for a fewer step routine with clean products. A huge aspect of minimalist skincare is also using products that have clean ingredients.
In addition to that, the products that are typically considered clean are also generally products with a lot less ingredients in them– more of the stuff your skin needs, and less of the useless fillers that have no real benefit for the health of your skin’s biome.
Overall Benefits of Minimalist Skincare Routine
There are so many reasons as to why you should consider revamping your excessive routine to be minimal.
You will save yourself so much money once you hone in on a small selection of products that are tailored to your needs and that you know work for you, rather than flocking to the store every time you hear of a new trendy product that is overpriced, and underperforms.
One of the most desirable benefits of minimal skincare is how the overall health of your skin is sure to improve once you minimize your routine. The issue with stacking so many products on your face is that you are just actively clogging your pores.
All of the benefits you think you are receiving are ultimately canceling out, which is not something that any of us want! Being intentional with the products you choose to put on your skin really teaches you about your own skin– the things that work for you, and the things that do not.
Overall, it can be incredibly rewarding finding a few clean products that you love and work wonders for your skin. You need to remind yourself that it really is okay to just have a cleanser, toner, serum, and moisturizer in your routine if that is what works best for you– less is definitely more in the world of skincare!
