Set to be the next new major trend this year, Skinimalism is on our lists of one to watch in 2021. But what is Skinimalism you might ask? Skinamlism is the perfect combination of makeup and skincare that leaves your skin feeling fresh and looking gorgeously glowing throughout the day. So, if you’re not really a huge fan of the high coverage look, then this might be one for you!

This natural new trend strives to showcase every bit of beauty your complexion has to offer, including texture, pores, blemishes and discolouration. Essentially we want to move away from those unrealistic beauty standards and look forward to a new movement of minimal makeup, and with the post Covid life we’re living, there’s no time like now to get on board. 

If this sounds like something for you then read on to discover our top tips –

Strip back your skincare

After years of those long and tedious skincare routines, it’s finally time to strip back your routine and use as little products as possible. It’s so important to be kind to your skin and skincare shouldn’t be complicated. For cleansing, use the Lancôme Eau Micellaire Confort Hydrating Micelar Water morning and night, you may think you should only be cleansing for removal of makeup, but we recommend that you cleanse with or without products on your face. 

After cleansing, be sure to use a Vitamin C cream, right now we’re currently obsessing over the Ren Clean Skincare Glow Daily Vitamin C Gel Cream. Not only is this cream bursting with Vitamin C, the light gel formula activates instantly on the skin too! So give this one a go to radiate that effortless glow.

Finally finish off your new routine with an SPF. Using sun protection is essential for brightening dull skin. Sun or no sun, it’s still an important ingredient to use to protect your complexion from those harmful rays. This Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Intensive Daily Moisturiser has an SPF of 15  which is perfect for a light and protective feel. 

Go light on your skin

It’s so important to be light on your skin with your makeup products. Ideally you should be able to see your skin texture through the makeup, so using a lower coverage product is a must for Skinamlism. 

This BareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturiser is easy to use and looks great on the skin too. Combining a moisturiser, foundation and SPF in one is a dreamy combination for great skin. So, give your skin a breather and try out this new addition to FD and don’t worry, you can thank us later!
