Great skin is not only a question of DNA; in fact, your daily skincare habits and lifestyle choices significantly affect the appearance you see in the mirror. Considering all the product reviews you read online or the aestheticians you get in touch with, there are a bunch of general practices to keep in mind.
Nevertheless, skincare is a matter of individual preferences. Here are some things to bear in mind as you try to filter through all the noise.
The Idea Behind Skinimalism – A Simplified Routine
Minimalism has become popular in recent years. Focusing on what’s important and letting go of the rest is a prescription for happiness in all aspects of our lives. In addition to being an art form and a design trend, minimalism is also a sensible and healthy approach to managing your skincare routine and habits. However, switching from a ten-step AM and PM routine to a three-step ritual may not come easy—just like any transition, it will take time.
‘Skinimalism’ is an intuitive method to take care of your skin in the simplest way. To achieve this, it is necessary to choose skincare products that provide several advantages, such as removing makeup and cleansing pores simultaneously (hello, Skin Loft’s Clarifying Cleanser!) and paying close attention to what your skin needs at the moment. So, what are the benefits of Skinimalism? Plenty! Our top reasons for choosing this approach include:
- A stripped-back regimen means you save a lot of money.
- It’s the path to living a more sustainable lifestyle.
- Less product build-up and more vanity storage.
- No skin reactions, leading to a better complexion.
Now that you know the nitty-gritty of Skinimalism—to see the REAL improvement, stop following the trend and start paying attention to your skin’s concerns. The idea is to focus on the most problematic issue and proceed from there.
Skin Loft’s Three-Step Skincare Regimen
Ready to embrace the power of Skinimalism? Get started on your skincare routine with Skin Loft. Our three-step regimen goes like this:
Skin Loft’s Clarifying Salicylic Acid Cleanser: a unique sulfate and paraben-free formula formulated with Niacinamide to cut through pores build-up, eliminating acne-causing bacteria, oil, and impurities for soft, radiant, and blemish-free skin.
Skin Loft’s Vita CE Morning Serum: a clinically proven formula to reduce sunburned cells by 96% and enhance photo-protection against UV damage by 8 times—to dramatically reverse signs of aging.
Skin Loft’s HA Physical Tinted SPF 44: an oil-free, water-resistant physical sunscreen formulated with Hyaluronic Acid for a moisturizing sheer base, suitable for nearly all skin types. This product offers a little coverage for a makeup free look but is also light enough to wear with makeup – for a hydrated, “dewy” glow.
How to Properly Layer an AM and PM Skincare Routine
Although there is no one “proper” sequence to perform a skincare regimen—a certain way to apply products is more effective. It doesn’t matter if you are a minimalist who wants to adhere to a three-step regimen or someone prepared to go through 11 stages every day in search of beautiful skin; how you layer your selected products significantly influences how well they perform.
However, remember that the more “product-heavy” the regimen, the more time it takes to penetrate deep into the skin. There’s a reason why the cleanser comes first, followed by the serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen.
Embracing this step-by-step routine helps guarantee that your general skincare products perform just right. After all, who wants to spend money on teeny-tiny serum bottles only to be ineffective due to improper application?
AM: Cleanser, Vitamin C Serum, Moisturizer , SPF
PM: Cleanser, Serum, Moisturize
If you’re having trouble breaking things down, follow the overview above, which outlines the optimal sequence for your morning and night skincare regimen.
But why is this sequence so effective?
The general presumption is to clean the skin with a gentle cleanser, apply actives, and seal it with moisturizing products following a good sunscreen.
The Most Minimal Facial of ALL TIME!
Do you know what the most minimal facial of ALL TIME is? The ever-popular HydraFacial.
According to Allure, an American women’s magazine focused on beauty, “Every 15 seconds, a HydraFacial is performed somewhere in the world” Don’t even try to calculate: that’s over 2 million facials worldwide! It has become the go-to facial for every relative, friend, and coworker because it addresses common skincare issues in the most minimal way with no side effects.
It is a four-step procedure beginning with exfoliation and cleansing—followed by extraction and hydration. This revolutionary and renewing method uses a vortex spinning approach to offer hydration while eliminating dead skin, grime, debris, and pollutants.
Skin Loft’s gentle and relaxing procedure removes debris from pores with painless suction and infuses the skin with antioxidants, leaving your skin brighter and well-nourished—all of this for $179. The session is 30 minutes long. Try it yourself: HydraFacial at Skin Loft Medical Spa.
The Final Cut
When we oversaturate our pores with countless formulations, we end up with product build-up. They’re all designed to be used topically, and this may not seem to be a major concern for most people; however, it may cause breakouts, inflammation, and blocked pores. Instead of stressing your skin, allow it to breathe—and a simplified skincare routine provides that opportunity.
The idea is simple; when it comes to skincare products, it is not about how many weapons you have in your armory but rather about how effective those weapons are. Try to make the most of your twenties by making wise purchases that actually make a difference.
