Minimalist skin care, love it, respect it and that’s literally all I’ve really been into. And it’s just the truth. I have never been the person to want to engage in 15 steps of skincare day and night. Like… I’m doing good to just lather, rinse, dry, restore and moisturize. You feel me?

Nevertheless, several step routines also always seem to be unnecessarily WAY too much. One reason being that my skin naturally is beyond sensitive. Therefore, adding so much product, after product to my skin is just asking for a reaction. Which is not cute.

Henceforth I was so excited to see for 2021 many have now adopted the minimalist skincare ideals! There are those who are calling this a trend; but I do not. Why not?

Well, first of all to me, skincare shouldn’t be treated in a trend manner. ITS NOT. Your skin is the largest organ of your body. So if you want this large body element to look radiant and it’s best; you must treat it with respect and care and it shouldn’t be compromised by you staying “ON TREND.” You should always just stick to what works; as well as what’s actually right for your skin on an individual basis.

Nevertheless, Minimalist skin care is becoming so popular; it has been given a name this year. Wait for it… Skinimalism. Catchy right? I think so.

In any case, skinimalism is the end of caked-on makeup. Now it’s about letting your natural skin texture shine through. It’s about streamlining your skincare regimen and taking note of the ingredients being used. To help you do just that, check out some brands below who are helping to spearhead this beauty movement.

Minimalist Skincare Routine

Well, now that you are aware of some awesome beauty companies that offer easy-breezy skincare products. You might in general just be wondering; what does a minimalist skincare routine involve? Well, it’s just the basics of:


Those make up a proper skincare routine, but of course you want to always tailor things for yourself. So that, you will want to stick to it on a regular basis; because no routine will be one that you want to keep up with if it does not seem “doable.”

Therefore, it’s also up to you what you consider the basics but I would start there. Perhaps in addition to the above four basics; you could add a serum, which I like to do from time to time. This is because serums are what really change your skin since they are packed with skin-treating ingredients.
