When Pinterest released its 2021 report on trends, beauty minimalists all over the world felt seen. Wondering what we mean? Well, the social media service declared that skin minimalism would be one of the most important beauty trends of the year and were all for it! Skin minimalism essentially refers to the practice of paring back your extensive skincare routine to just the basics. As most of us have been staying home for the better part of a year and a half, it is essential that we adopt sustainable beauty practices that we can follow every single day. That is better than attempting a routine that were very excited to dive into initially but the novelty of which fades away with every passing day.What is skin minimalism?A simplified beauty routine that aims to make you embrace your real skin, textures, pores and all. You cut out the unnecessary products and use just a handful that give skin a natural glow. Whats not to love?How can I be a skincare minimalist?The easiest way is to go back to the basics. Think cleanser, moisturiser and sunscreen. Rather than swearing off all products, you use what your skin will benefit from. So if you need a spot treatment or a chemical exfoliator, by all means, add it to your routine! The idea is to use what works, rather than buying into fads or just using products because someone you know uses them.
