5 Ways to Start a Simple Skin Care Routine
Pare down your routines for a healthy glow with a simple skin care routine.
If you’re looking to simplify your beauty and skin care routine as part of your vision for the new year or you just need some more simplicity in your life, a simple skin care routine is the way to go. While starting a new routine (even if it’s supposed to be simple) can sound daunting, it doesn’t need to be! Here are five easy ways to begin your simple skin care routine.
Focus on Quality Over Quantity
When starting a simple skin care routine, it’s important to start shifting your mindset when it comes to the way you view beauty and beauty products. Opt for a quality over quantity! Sure, a medicine cabinet filled with fancy skin care looks great on Instagram, but it may not be helping your skin. Try to invest in high-quality products that truly work for your skin so that you don’t waste your hard-earned time and money. A perfect example is the Uvina Power Bundle, a collection of high-quality skin care products that will help kickstart your simple skin care routine in 3 easy steps!
Healthy Skin, Not Perfect Skin
Don’t let perfection be the enemy of good when it comes to your skin. Although a natural, simple skin care routine can help your skin look healthier, it may not cure every imperfection. Remember, having a little skin texture or a few dark spots is completely normal. Don’t expect your skin care routine to make your skin look like an airbrushed Photoshop image! Letting go of this expectation will mean that your simple skin care routine will work better for you and won’t disappoint.
Declutter Your Beauty Cabinet
The next step is more tactile. Go through your beauty cabinet—or bag, or drawer—and take out everything that is expired, items you haven’t used in six months, or items that you already know don’t work for you. Removing these means you have more room for the good and you can easily reach for the stuff you already know you love.
Spend More Time With the People and Activities You Love
Although not a skin care tip, this might be the most important! As part of your shift into a simple skin care routine (and minimalist beauty in general), try to spend some time away from the beauty world at large. Spend more time with your family and friends doing the hobbies and activities you love. The less you fuss over your skin or makeup routine, the better the effects of your routines will be. Trust us.
Consider Multi-Purpose Products
One last tip that’ll help you be successful on your journey towards a simple skin care routine is to think about where you can swap out your existing products for ones that are multi-purpose. Our Gaby Antioxidant-Rich & Soothing Serum not only hydrates and smoothes, but it also helps fight redness and puffiness! Also consider new ways to use the products you already love. Could your face cream be used to nourish your cuticles? Could you cut the Isabel Peppermint Facial Cleansing Bar in half and use one-half to cleanse your body? (Btw, this is great post-workout to prevent body acne!) Using one product in multiple ways not only simplifies your routine, but also saves you time and money!
As you begin your simple skin care routine, remember that less is often more.
