When it comes to skincare, there are a lot of different approaches to take, and so many products on the market to cater for every type of skin. With so many products and needs, there are also so many different types of skincare routine.
Some people experiment with a range of different serums, cleansers and creams to find the perfect mix to keep their skin radiant, some people rely on the friendly beauticians at their local skin therapy clinic to give them advice, and then there are skincare minimalists.
A skincare minimalist approach is all about cutting your skincare routine down to the most basic products and essentials you need to keep your skin healthy and beautiful, and relying on all-natural products wherever possible.
It might be the right choice for you if you don’t like how much time it seems to take to get ready and keep your skin looking healthy, or if you have a lot of skincare products and are not sure which ones are the best for your skin.
In the end, if a routine works for you it is right for you.
A great minimalist routine consists of just a few products:
- An effective cleanser, that can remove the dirt, excess oils and other impurities from your face without being too abrasive or getting rid of the oil needed to serve as your skin’s barrier. Micellar water may work if other cleansers are too abrasive.
- The right moisturiser for your skin. Whether it is a serum, cream, oil or lotion, look for a product that will hydrate your skin.
- A suncream with glycolic acid and vitamin C when you step outside. Even on colder days, the sun can affect your skin so an SPF 30 suncream is essential.
- An eye cream to reduce puffiness, fine lines, dark circles and wrinkles.
