As much as I love stocking up on every new skincare product that arrives in the market, I’m always struggling to find enough time to use so many of them all at once. And while I often vow to religiously follow a lengthy, multi-step skincare routine, the motivation doesn’t last for too long. *sigh* In fact, I end up with no skincare routine at all on some days. *hides face* If you’re like me and think it’s time to streamline your skincare routine, then going minimal could do the trick for you. Not to forget, it’ll still serve the same purpose—dewy, glowing complexion.
A huge shout-out to lazy girls, millennials and minimalists! Here’s an all-new skincare trend that you’re going to love. It’s called skip-care! Does your skincare regimen demand more time than your entire makeup routine? If yes, then skip-care is for you. It is in fact the answer to a more effective and efficient skincare routine. Here’s everything you need to know about it.
What is skip-care?
As the term suggests, this Korean skincare trend called skip-care means to actually skip using multiple products in your skincare regimen. But, if you’re thinking of just cutting down on products randomly, then no! What you have to do is find products that have multiple benefits instead of layering on product after product. This way, you’re saving money, time and space!
How to select products for a skip-care routine?
If you want to get onboard with the skip-care trend, then you first need to know exactly what you want to achieve from your skincare products. Are you looking for anti-ageing products to target fine lines and wrinkles? Do you want something that gently exfoliates and remove dead cells? Are you looking to treat uneven skin tone and pigmentation? Once you set your goal, look for the best multi-benefit products. There is nothing like seeing the same results, but with far lesser products.
For instance, you can get your hands on a moisturiser with SPF or a skin gel that works as a hydrating primer. Including such multitasking products in your skincare routine can also help reduce the time spent on your everyday routine.
Why is skip-care a healthier practice?
Layering multiple products on your face calls for more potential irritation. Also, you never know whether the products that you’re layering together are compatible with each other or not. That’s exactly why skip-care is minimalism at its best.
You’re not spending too much time getting your skincare right and you’re also saving a lot of money by not investing in 10 different products. Win-win!
