Skinimalism: The Minimalist Approach to Good Skincare

by | Dec 3, 2021 | Tips & Tricks

Look, you don’t need to use every product known to man to get good skin. Sometimes we just don’t have the time or money to dedicate hours every day to getting flawless skin. Yet, not all hope is lost! I, myself, am a skinimalist—meaning I take a pretty simplified approach to my skincare routine, but I still get great results.

First and foremost, we should mention that I do not wear makeup. I never have, and I honestly don’t plan on wearing it anytime soon. It is a personal choice, and it has nothing to do with anyone else! I honestly just don’t want to take the time to do makeup, simple as that. I tell you this because if I don’t want to take the time to do makeup, chances are I also just take a pretty relaxed, quick approach to my skincare.

I care about my skin, but I do it in a very minimalistic way, simply because I can, and it works for me. Anyways! In order to start a minimalist skincare routine, you need 3-4 products MAX. They are: a cleanser, moisturizer, sunscreen, and if needed, a topical acne treatment or something else that is needly uniquely to your skin.

We’ve talked about how to choose the products best made for your skin on the blog several times, so don’t be shy to peek around and see what’s up. If you need further help in this department and would like to get a professional’s opinion, come chat with us at Luminessence.

Okay, back to the skinimalism at hand. If you’re worried that lessening your skincare routine will wreck your skin, fear not! Many dermatologists actually recommend taking a less complex approach to your skincare. Sometimes the more products that are introduced to your skin can end up irritating, clogging, and even some long term effects on your pores. Yikes!

This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use an exfoliator sometimes or use that eye cream and whatnot. This just means that going overboard isn’t always good—for your skin or your budget.

Look towards versatile and high-quality products that are guaranteed to clean your skin and introduce some essential components back into it as well. Look for products made from plants to get ultimate natural benefits too. Going skinimalist can help your skin and the environment! No need to buy in excess and get products you never will use. Lessen your plastic consumption with less products. Go skinimalist, you might thank me for changing your skin’s life!
