Simplify your skincare routine and embrace your natural skin with Skinimalism
It's time to embrace skinimalism. When it comes to our daily skincare routine, more doesn't necessarily mean better and the excessive skincare regimens we are sold can oftentimes harm the skin in the long run, damage the skin barrier, causing redness, irritation, or acne. There is also the environmental impact of having your cabinet always full of so many different products and not to mention the time it takes to do a 12-step routine.
When we try to solve our skin issues by using too many products with many actives and ingredients, we confuse, overwhelm, and overstimulate our skin, never reaping the benefits we sought in the first place. In fact, according to the Environmental Working Group, the average woman applies 168 different chemicals from 12 personal-care products every day. With this much excess it then becomes nearly impossible to find the culprit ingredient or product. So if you find yourself in this situation, the best thing to do is take a few steps back and try skinimalism, a minimalist approach to your skincare routine that allows your natural skin to take center stage.
The first step in this process is to make healthier, more informed choices whenever you can and to identify and restrict what you put on your skin. Try to find a few multifunctional products made without harmful ingredients, products rooted in nature, that help support a healthy, balanced complexion.
Skinimalism prioritizes skin health and lets your natural beauty shine through. Using fewer multitasking products and committing to a more sustainable skincare routine will save time and money and minimize your carbon footprint: less product, packaging, and waste.
Selecting a few multifunctional products with ingredients that tackle the issues you most want to address makes room for the rest of your routine to be simpler and more pleasant. When formulating our products, we always look to maximize results with fewer steps and products. Try our Skinimalism starter kit. It includes our award-winning Moisturizer Sacha Inchi Face Cream and plant-based Retinol alternative Superfruit Facial Oil. Both products are consciously formulated with natural, active ingredients from the Amazon Rainforest that deliver multiple benefits and naturally effective results.
Amazonian SkinFood came to life to simplify beauty routines for busy women and offer complete care without compromise.
Beyond these two products, add a gentle cleanser and mineral sunscreen to complement a perfect daily skinimalist skincare ritual. We recommend a 3-5 steps routine using multifunctional, clean products.
Remember, there is no such thing as an instant fix, and you need time to reap the benefits; as with most things in life, results are seen with consistent use. Generally, aim to use a product over at least six weeks, once or twice daily, to notice a difference. Be consistent, that's all!
Have a good time loving yourself and embracing your natural beauty.
