01 Mar What is Skinimalism?
Wave goodbye to your multi-step skincare regime. This year, it’s all about keeping it simple with Skinimalism. Wondering what on earth we’re talking about? Keep reading to find out what Skinimalism is and how to get glowing skin naturally.
A minimalist approach to skincare
Skinimalism or ‘skin minimalism’ is all about stripping back your skincare routine in favour of a more minimalist and sustainable approach. Featured on Pinterest’s 2021 Trend Predictions Report, it’s set to be one of the biggest trends in the health and beauty industry this year.
And you need look no further than the Coronavirus pandemic for its biggest influencer. Yes, thanks to the pandemic, our approach to skincare and makeup has drastically changed. Skincare has become a form of self care. It’s no longer about piling on the most products, followed by a full face of makeup. But instead selecting the best skincare formulas to achieve a healthy, natural glow.
Cut back your daily skincare regime and focus on the good stuff. An effective glow-boosting skincare routine can be carried out in a few easy steps.
Start with cleansing your skin morning and night, using a product designed for your skin type. Cleansing the skin will help to remove dirt, grime and impurities, preventing a build-up. Gently massage your face for a thorough cleanse.
Exfoliate your skin a few times a week to get rid of dead skin cells and rejuvenate your complexion. We love the Medik8 Press & Glow tonic.
Use a targeted serum with active ingredients to give your skin what it really needs. If you’re unsure what it needs, book a skincare consultation.
Skincare products containing vitamin C are scientifically proven to achieve clearer, healthier and glowing skin. Choose the Medik8 C-Tetra serum to brighten the skin and benefit from antioxidant protection. For more information, read our full review of the Medik8 Vitamin C range.
Spend time massaging the serum into your skin. Think of it as yoga for the face! A gentle massage can work wonders on your complexion, improving circulation, encouraging collagen production and improving overall tone.
Moisturising your skin will help to boost hydration, plump the skin and promote a more youthful-looking complexion. A little moisturiser goes a long way. You don’t necessarily need a separate moisturiser for day and night. A good formula, like the Medik8 Daily Radiance Vitamin C cream will provide all of the benefits you need.
Last but not least, you need to protect your skin. Applying an SPF is essential, no matter the time of year. Protect your skin from signs of ageing, like dark spots and nasty diseases like skin cancer.
Skinimalism salon treatments
While cutting back on excessive skincare is all well and good, it doesn’t mean you have to forgo your favourite salon treatments. In fact, skin peels, microneedling and IPL facials will help you to achieve the naturally glowing skin you desire.
PMU (permanent makeup), microblading and lash lifts are also great treatments for those wanting to cut back on every day makeup. Benefit from natural, long-lasting results and save time doing your brows and lashes daily.
Fingers crossed, the salon will re-open 12th April. So if you’re interested in booking a treatment, get your name on our waiting list. Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know the treatment you’re interested in. At the beginning of April, we’ll be in touch to book you in.
