No shade to the 10-step skincare regimen, but sometimes it’s nice to keep things simple. Many people don’t have the time (or money) to consistently do an expansive routine. We’ve always believed that skincare doesn’t have to be complicated in order to get real results. Which is why we’re so psyched to see that keeping things simple is the latest trend, something now being called “skip-care.”
It’s billed as a “new” K-Beauty trend, but the fact is that skip-care has been something we’ve been advocating long before it began making waves in the media. Think of it as a new name for the #skincarediet — it’s a “less equals more” approach that is all about deconstructing your routine and curating products that give you multiple benefits without sacrificing efficacy.
Our philosophy has always been about listening to your skin and incorporating products that work for you and your lifestyle. All that fluff and excess might be fun, but at the end of the day what you really need are simple, quality products that keep your skin well hydrated and nourished.
Ready to join the skip-care revolution? Here’s how to do it.
Like all good routines, skip-care starts with an effective cleanser. Cleansing is the most important part of any routine as it keeps your skin clean and bacteria-free. Rather than double cleansing, try a dual-action wash like the Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser. There’s no need for a cleansing oil as this gentle cleanser deep cleans AND dissolves every trace of makeup without stripping your skin.
Next up is hydration. Don’t clutter your routine with tons of toners and serums. Instead stick with a nourishing toner that you can layer with ease. This is called the 7 Skin Method. The goal is to maximize your skin’s hydration levels by applying multiple layers of one superstar product. One of our favorites to do this with is the Jullai Super 12 Bounce Essence Oil Toner. This revolutionary skin treatment combines a toner and a serum into one lightweight, antioxidant-rich moisturizing essence. Cut your routine in half by layering this toner as many times as you like for long-lasting hydration.
Skin need a bit more TLC? Lock in moisture and add an extra dose of nutrition to your skin with the Tundra Chaga Pressed Serum. This hybrid moisturizer combines the power of a serum and a moisturizer all-in-one. The formula is infused with 60% Chaga Mushroom to hydrate and visibly firm for soft, supple skin.
Whether you call it skip-care or the skin-care diet, this method is all about using what your skin truly needs and getting rid of what it doesn’t. It’s not about sacrificing good ingredients or necessary steps. Instead, super-charge the products and application methods in your routine to get great results.
Love your 10-step routine? That’s ok — the great thing about skincare is that it can be tailored to your preferences, time, and budget. There’s no judgement here, so do what feels right for you and your skin.
