When it comes to skincare, we’ve got a vanity full of products from serums to moisturisers lined up to apply to our skin, with each product targeting different skin concerns. But more often than not, we tend to dread the multi-step skincare routine that we have to diligently follow and end up going to bed bare faced. Well, say hello to the minimal skincare trend that saves time and suits busy lifestyles: skip-care.
Skip-care has been all the rave for a while now, and for good reason: it’s basically the antithesis for the long 10-step skincare routine we’ve been told to follow. Instead of picking out 8 to 10 products that have different benefits, opt for a few good multi-tasking products that’ll help improve your skin and tackle any skin concerns you may have.
The tip is knowing what your skin needs and customising your skincare products according to that. A quick example: if you’re got dry, ageing skin, keep an eye out for a hydrating moisturiser that helps to smooth out fine lines too, so you can fill two needs with one deed.
If you’re keen on hopping onboard with this new trend, here are some overachieving K-beauty essentials you’ll find useful for getting started on your very own skip-care regimen.
