Maybe you’ve seen the term “skinimalism” floating around the internet lately, and you may have a general idea of what it means, but want to know more (otherwise you wouldn’t be here reading all about it, amiright?). 

According to Pinterest Predicts, “skinimalism” will be the biggest beauty trend this 2021 and it’s all about streamlining your skincare regimen, choosing clean beauty products with natural and holistic ingredients, paring down your makeup and letting your skin texture shine through, and focusing more on your natural beauty. 

This year in beauty, less is definitely more. 

Skinimalism is the answer to your prayers if you’ve been feeling overwhelmed with all the #shelfie posts of overflowing beauty products you’ve been seeing on social media, and wishing you could afford all those in order to get amazing skin. 

Because fact is: you don’t need a ton of beauty products to look good!

Why “Skinimalism”

The ongoing global pandemic definitely played a role in the rise of this beauty trend especially since people are mostly stuck at home and there’s no real need to put on makeup. Even if we were to go out, half of our face would be covered with a face mask anyway. 

But that’s not to say that people no longer care about how they look. People nowadays are just moving towards a more accepting and holistic approach to beauty. Going back to the basics, focusing on the overall health of their skin, and perhaps even enhancing their natural beauty with a small help from makeup products. 

Benefits of Skinimalism

Adopting the Skinimalism trend means paring down your skincare routine and choosing double-duty makeup products which also means cutting down on money spent as well as time spent getting ready. 

When you’re using a ton of skincare products, you may notice that your skin tends to become irritated and you break out more. This is because some skincare ingredients don’t really mix well together so when mixed, they end up doing more harm than good. 

This is why Skinimalism can also prove to be efficient because you become more conscious of the beauty products you’re buying and choosing the ones that will best benefit your skin.
