Skinimalism: the newest skincare trend

Skinimalism: the newest skincare trend

Skin care trends keep coming and going, but one trend we believe is here to stay and is an absolute favorite of ours is skinimalism.You can probably understand what the word means just by looking at it. But just to be sure, what is skinimalism? 

It is a skincare trend that gained popularity in 2022 and quickly made its place in the beauty and skincare industry with people going crazy over it. It gained much hype and for once we can say that it deserved every bit of it and more. Skinimalism is the trend that helps to not only transform the skin but also to save money and time when it comes to building a skincare routine. This trend is all about simplifying your skincare and building a regimen that will help you achieve healthy and glowy skin with only a handful of effective products. 

So what exactly is the skinimalism trend?

With the rise of skincare routines consisting of more than 10 steps, dermatologists raised concerns about their effectiveness as excessive product use is linked to skin irritation, inflammation, sensitivity and a damaged skin barrier. As the hype of elaborate and time-consuming skincare routines waned with the Covid 19 restrictions easing, people looked for options that were quick yet effective, as they returned to their normal, pre-covid lives. This change in lifestyle gave rise to the trend of skin minimalism or skinimalism as you might say it. 

Based on the approach of less is more, the concept of skinimalism is to limit the quantity of the products you use on your skin and instead focus on the quality so that the skin can repair and rejuvenate itself.

How to perform skincare like a skinimalist?

Skinimalsim does not mean that you get rid of everything that is present in your vanity; it just means to incorporate products into your skincare more mindfully. It means to eliminate layers of multiple products that possibly irritate the skin more and instead focus on the products that enable it to heal and recuperate so that it glows from within.  

If you are not sure about your quest for skinimalism, then check out some of the simple skincare steps mentioned below.

  • Cleansing: Cleansing is the most vital step of any good skincare and must not be skipped under any circumstances. Using a good cleanser twice a day will help in removing all the dirt, dust, bacteria and pollution that gets trapped into the pores of your skin after a long day. If you are someone who uses makeup on an everyday basis, then you must double cleanse as a part of your skincare routine. Double cleansing will make sure that no makeup is left trapped underneath your pores and will also make your skin squeaky clean. When selecting a cleanser, make sure that it is gentle on the skin. Leovard’s Multicleanser is one of the gentlest cleansers that you can find in the market. It contains soothing ingredients such as oatmeal, green tea, lactic acid and hyaluronic acid that does wonders for the skin without leaving it feeling dry and tight.


  • Toning: After you cleanse your face, a toner will help in removing any leftover dirt, oil and debris while also prepping your skin for the rest of your skincare routine. If you skip this part in your skincare routine, then your skin might become dry and your skin’s natural barrier might get damaged making it vulnerable and causing breakouts to occur as a toner helps to hydrate as well as nourish the skin, helping to alleviate any post cleansing inflammation. The Leovard Tonic has an amazing list of ingredients that help in soothing any kind of inflammation and itchiness. This product contains salicylic acid that makes it great for exfoliation purposes as well.


  • Serum: A facial serum helps in nourishing, protecting and hydrating the skin and is a must have in your skinimalism routine. Serums are formulated with potent ingredients that target your skin issues directly. Use of a serum also helps in minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and also combats acne. Leovard’s Serum is a great pick as it contains hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and aloe vera while also containing soothing ingredients such as chamomile and lavender.

  • Moisturizer: No skincare routine is complete without a moisturizer. A good moisturizer is a must to seal all the products that have been applied on to the skin for best possible results. Applying a moisturizer twice a day will help in keeping the skin healthy and plump looking all the time. Leovard’s Multicream makes a perfect choice for a daily moisturizer as it is lightweight and non-greasy, making it best for everyday application which will keep the skin nourished and hydrated throughout the day.


With all the above tips, we have now established that skinimmalism is a trend that teaches you to focus on quality rather than quantity. It helps in saving money, time and is also a lot better for the environment. One more thing about skinimalism is that it encourages people to embrace their natural skin and texture which has become quite difficult for many individuals. So get on with this new trend to achieve better looking skin!
