Skinimalism 101: Everything You Need To Know About This Beauty Trend

A new season always brings the chance to declutter and start afresh, and the whole ‘out with the old, in with the new’ approach can revive your spirit when beginning a new chapter. To help with that even more this autumn, we’re championing skinimalism. 

What’s that exactly? It’s a trend that’s taken the world by storm due to its simple methodology and we think it’s here to stay. Skinimalism is about scaling down on your skincare products and choosing what is best for your skin type. The rule of thumb is four products of less.

Excessive skincare routines have the ability to cause aggravation and, in some cases, breakouts and acne. What’s more, highly active ingredients, when used together, can cause more damage than good. Scaling back to four products or less reduces the chance of this happening. Other benefits of skinimalism include saving time, as well as money, plus, the extra space on your bathroom shelf is always refreshing.

If skinimalism sounds up your alley, all you need are the basics: a great cleanser, a moisturiser that contains hyaluronic acid, a serum with vitamin C and, of course, a trusted SPF. Here are the products we recommend to start your simpler skincare journey:

Clarins Hydrating Gentle Foaming Cleanser

The Clarins Hydrating Gentle Foaming Cleanser contains organic chamomile and shea butter, which leaves sensitive-to-dry skin types feeling ultra-soft but thoroughly cleansed. Apply this cleanser to damp skin each day and don’t forget your neck area.

Estée Lauder Revitalizing Supreme+ Youth Power Soft Crème Moisturizer

Nourishing, soft and oh-so-luxurious, the Estée Lauder Revitalizing Supreme+ Youth Power Soft Crème Moisturizer contains heaps of hyaluronic acid to hydrate your skin and give it a glow. Collagen-boosting technology found within the moisturiser helps to lift and firm tired-looking skin.

Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler Vitamin C Booster

Don’t be fooled by the size of Eucerin’s Hyaluron-Filler Vitamin C Booster. This 8ml booster contains a whopping 10% vitamin C, which helps intensely strengthen and smooth the skin. Vitamin C is one of the most powerful antioxidants and it helps protect your skin from environmental stressors such as pollution, sun exposure, cigarette smoke and excessive weather conditions. Combine this booster with your moisturiser or use it on its own. This product also contains hyaluronic acid for added hydration.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Sun Defense For Face SPF 50 PA+++

Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream Sun Defense For Face SPF50 PA+++ protects the skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays with its lightweight texture. Apply liberally to your face and neck each day before going outdoors and every 30 minutes if you take a dip.
