1. It's simple, but effective
Have you ever opened your bathroom cabinet and wondered how you became the owner of countless different cleansers, toners, lotions, exfoliants, creams, and peels? You're not alone.
Layering on too many skincare products not only clutters your space and costs you a lot of money—it can also worsen existing skin issues and damage our fragile home.
Thankfully, the beauty industry is shifting to adopt effective, multi-use products made with natural ingredients that are safe for daily use—unlike many common products on the market.
With skinimalism, you get products that use hyper targeted botanical ingredients to treat your skin (and hair) issues. You get the same benefits from just 1 or 2 products as a 7 step routine.
“Skinimalism is a movement toward embracing your real skin—less makeup and fewer beauty products—and allowing your natural glow to shine as opposed to heavy layers of makeup and contouring that often reflect unrealistic beauty standards."
– Sejal Shah, M.D., F.A.A.D.
2. Your skin needs a break
More does not mean better. Multi-step skin care routines are purely marketing.
Using too many products to treat skin and hair concerns can result in new issues. Dermatologists, aestheticians, and nurses continue to see patients with complex skin care routines facing problems such as acne and irritation.
Adopting skinimalism means giving your skin the chance to repair itself—going back to basics by focusing primarily on hydration and protection using natural ingredients that work in harmony with your natural oils.
The amount of time you'll save is also a nice bonus!
3. Skinimalism is for the Earth
The problems with excessive skincare routines go beyond your wallet, cluttered cabinets, and damaged skin. The packaging from these products creep into our waterways, ecosystems, and landfills.
Skinimalism is at the forefront of making the beauty industry more sustainable. By adopting a skinimalist regimen, you are not only reducing your consumption through multi-use, high-quality, and long-lasting products—you are also creating less waste and supporting businesses that make the conscious effort to use vegan, cruelty-free, and natural formulations.
Skinimalism isn't just about beautiful, healthy skin. It is also about finding new ways to bring more conscious products and packaging into your home for the Earth, the ocean and humankind.
