Skin Minimalism in 2021’s Biggest Beauty Trend

What is Skin Minimalism?

A Skin Minimalist is someone who desires and achieves healthy glowing skin with a minimal effort approach. Their values are having the ‘essentials’ within their regime that deliver the nutrients the skin needs to function properly to maintain and preserve its health.

What are the must-have essentials for a skin minimalist?

The must-haves within a Skincare routine consist of a Cleanser, Exfoliant, Vitamin A, B, C, Moisturiser, and an SPF.

Cleansing your skin is absolutely essential to any part of a good skincare routine as it ensures that we are not only freeing our skin of makeup, dirt, and oils but are also cleansing our skin of environmental stressors that attach themselves to our skin.

Exfoliating at least once a week will ensure that we assist our skin with its cellular turnover, allowing our products to penetrate further into the skin and decongest and get rid of any dull, dry, and flaky skin cells.

Vitamin A assists with stimulating the cellular turnover of our skin, meaning we will have newer, healthier skin cells on the surface of our skin and thicken the dermis of our skin. Vitamin A  increases collagen deposition; therefore, it slows the normal ageing breakdown of your collagen and elastin.

Vitamin B, also known as Niacinamide, supports the skin barrier, increases its resiliency, and improves texture by making pores look smaller. It also helps balance oil production and is a fantastic anti-inflammatory.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that assists with helping to fight off free radical damage that everyday life stressors have on our skin. Vitamin C is one of the most common ingredients in skincare to assist with pigmentation and evening out our skin tone.

Moisturisers and SPF are an absolute must-do in every regime as moisturising assists with preventing TEWL and keeping our skin plump and dewy and SPF keeps those nasty UVA and UVB rays off our skin and assists with the prevention against skin cancers.
