Are you a skincare enthusiast with a 12-step daily morning and evening routine? The type of person who has more skincare products than friends? Then you may find it impossible to narrow your skincare routine to just the basics. It is great to pamper your skin with a lengthy skincare routine, but the key to getting great results really lies in the active ingredients of your products rather than the number of products you’re using.

So for all the skincare minimalists out there, this basic skincare routine is all you need to keep your skin looking good!

Cleanse
 

Cleanse

Cleansing is the most important step of every skincare routine. If your skin is covered in oil or dust, the active ingredients in your skincare products will not be effective as they cannot get through to your skin. This is why keeping your skin cleansed before applying products is necessary. We suggest micellar water as a cleansing solution for all the minimalists out there. The Simple Kind To Skin Micellar Cleansing Water is a gentle, no-rinse option containing tiny micelles that lift away dirt and oil to give you squeaky clean skin!

Target
 

Target

The next step in your minimalist skincare routine should be a serum that is designed to target your specific skin issue. We are recommending serums because they have high concentrations of active ingredients formulated to target a specific skin concern. If fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin are your main concerns then use the Lakmé Youth Infinity Skin Sculpting Serum which has Insta Collagen Boosters that help improve elasticity and tighten skin. Have dark spots, blemishes or uneven skin tone? Try the Lakmé Absolute Ideal Tone Refinishing Night Concentrate, infused with pineapple fruit extract, it gently exfoliates and reveals healthy, glowing skin.

Protect
 

Protect

You can be a minimalist all you want, but you don’t want to skip on a broad spectrum sunscreen. Prolonged exposure to the Sun without protection can lead to all sorts of skin issues. Therefore, wear a broad spectrum sunscreen each morning and reapply every two to three hours. The Ponds Sun Protect Non-Oily Sunscreen SPF 50 is a dermatologist tested formula, safe for all skin types.
