In skincare, it is always believed that the more products or ingredients you apply to your skin, the more glowing and better skin you will get. However, it is not true. What social media doesn’t tell you is the possible side effects associated with those ingredients. And even if those ingredients are safe to use, incorrect layering can result in damage to your skin. That’s where skinimalism comes to burst this bubble of “the more, the better.”
While excessive skincare and beauty products damage your skin, skinimalism means to strip back your makeup and skincare routine. It means to skinimize your routine and come to a more sustainable and minimalist approach. This concept is good for your skin as well as your environment.
Perfect skin is a lie. Normal skin has pores, scars, and spots. Dermatologists also support this new trend. They also advise you to keep your routine as minimal and straightforward as possible and only stay on the essential products. Unless you genuinely need a product, don’t overdo it. So with this new trend, embrace your scars and let your skin breathe.
