Skinimalism is on trend for 2021 (Skinimawhatism?)
Let those freckles show ladies!!! Skinimalism is in! Skiniwhattism? Skinimalism! The minimalist taking approach to your makeup and beauty routines. Think Marie Kondo for your face!
This past year has made us evaluate our homes, clothes, priorities, actions, and habits and caused many of us to step back and make some changes. The home is one big area of change, people are adding new colors, new spaces, comfy spots, things that help us enjoy home, things that make home feel like...well...home while also allowing for work spaces that feel separated.
Our face is another area of change this year. I guess you could say we are making an "about face" bwahahaaaa -I'm not even a dad!! OK, Ok, don't throw things. What I mean to say is that we are looking for more natural beauty and ready to embrace our own.
Every year Pinterest publishes upcoming tends based on search terms. For 2021 search terms like glowing skin, how to get glowing skin, Face Yoga, and Natural Everyday Makeup have been increasing as people are looking for how to achieve that natural glow and are more willing to let freckles, moles, and uneven skin show, embracing #nofilter for our face.
The trend is built on ideas of sustainability as well as being genuine, self acceptance, and encouraging you to just be you! Hmmm, they must we read our blog! We say that all the time.
Skinimalism is stepping away from layers of makeup, contouring, highlighting, fakers etc. less is more!
What does that look like?
The Clean Basics: The minimalist approach is to use fewer skin care items, but still use the ones that meet your needs
Moisturize (sunscreen too, my moisturizer includes sunscreen for 1 step)
The Beauty Basics:
BB and CC Cream instead of Foundation or tinted moisturizer
Light gloss and a little color
In the beginning it may feel strange, you may feel naked, or like you didn't finish putting on your face. try it in stages or go whole hog, but drop us a message on how your skinimalism is going? Post to Instagram and tag us @yieldingaction.
My Skinimilist routine:
YOUTH Luminous Gel Cleanser: Gentle polisher, purifier, and prep all in one. Plus anti-aging.
YOUTH Perfecting Skin Toner: Exfoliates, hydrates, and nourishing while removing pollutants and dull skin cells.
YOUTH Activating Beauty Balm: 5 in 1 beauty balm: Evens, Corrects, Hydrates, Nourishes, Protects.
I also usually add a little blush, light lip gloss, and sometimes an eyebrow pencil and I'm ready to go- freckles and all.
