Known for its intense 10-step skincare routine, K-beauty skincare is going in a totally opposite direction this year with Skip-care. A beauty trend that’s been around for a while, it slowly gained traction in the beauty community the past few years and is finally taking centre stage.
What is it? A skincare routine with a “less being more” approach that uses hybrid formulations to help cut down on the number of skincare products chillin’ on your counters. The benefits? You get the goodness of many products with just a few and it takes a lot less time to do.
We have to say, we’re totally loving the fact that we don’t have to spend a good chunk of time on our skincare routine anymore. So, if you’re a budding skincare minimalist, check out our Skip-care recommendations below.
Skip the Toner with Look At Me’s Avocado Bubble Purifying Foaming Cleanser
A cleanser that doesn’t just leave your skin squeaky clean but also provides hydration, thanks to the moisturising avocado extract. No need for a toner since it also tightens your pores.
Skip the Serum with Pibu Beauty’s Hydrating Soothing Sheet Mask
Cleanse, tone, mask and moisturise – that’s it. This sheet mask contains active ingredients that replenishes moisture while strengthening the skin barrier so you can now say goodbye to your serum.
Skip the Moisturiser with 1’s Single Drop Hydration Water Intensive Serum
This lightweight formulation will max out your skin’s hydration levels while making it firm, thanks to hyaluronic acid and collagen. If you don’t like that clogged feeling when layering many products, then this is definitely for you.
