After skin cycling, skin flooding, skin minimalism has arrived. While this trend is not new, the “less is more” approach to skin care, which involves simplifying your routine and letting your skin take center stage, is making a comeback. At Alchimie Forever we have always curated our product assortment based on the principles of efficacy, science, and simplicity – and we full-heartedly embrace skin minimalism.
A skin minimalist regimen doesn’t mean giving up your favorite skin care products, but rather going back to basics. It means giving your skin a chance to breathe and repair itself. It means giving your skin a break from too many active ingredients (which we love, just not all the time). Think of it as an “elimination diet” for your skin.
Let’s peel away the unnecessary steps, go back to basics and focus on the essentials.
Cleanse. Our Purifying Gel Cleanser is the perfect foundation to any skin care routine. Papaya extract and grapefruit provide a deep cleanse and mild exfoliation, while aloe and cucumber protect the skin’s natural barrier.
Treat. Our Tightening Eye Gel is the key to treating the delicate eye contour area, with mate alleviating puffiness and apple stem cells repairing and preventing signs of accelerated skin aging.
Moisturize. Our Kantic Calming Cream works for all skin types, providing anti-inflammatory properties for even the most sensitive skin and the perfect balanced level of moisture thanks to jojoba and vitamin E.
Protect. Of course, SPF protection is a must year-round. Our Protective Day Cream SPF23 is the perfect weightless SPF product. And while we recommend doing away with all makeup other than mascara and lipstick during your skin minimalism phase, this cream does layer beautifully under makeup.
Skin minimalism isn’t just about your skin. It’s also about being aware of our consumption habits, and mindful of the impact our choices have on the environment. At Alchimie Forever, we are committed to using sustainable packaging, working with vendors who ensure ethical sourcing of raw materials, and minimizing our carbon footprint.
Skin minimalism is more than just a trend, it is a lifestyle choice that allows us to embrace the beauty of our natural selves, and a reminder that beauty lies in simplicity.
