At JINMEE, we believe that skincare should be kept simple. That’s why, when we heard about one of the latest Korean beauty trends, Skipcare, we were instantly sold. Korea is famous for its vigorous 12-Step skincare routines with products containing various ingredients that perform various roles. It’s no wonder that Korea is famous for attaining wonderous results such as the ‘Glass Skin’ trend, which has been said to be only achievable through the strictest of skincare. But now, skincare has been stripped back to the bare minimum with a much more achievable 3-Step routine that we can all realistically get behind. This trend supports the idea of reevaluating your approach to skincare considering what basic product types and ingredient types your skin truly needs:
STEP #1: CLEANSING – Find a cleansing product that suits your skin type. This should be a 2-in-1 cleanser so it creates the same cleansing results as double cleansing (remember, the idea here is to take fewer steps).
STEP #2: HYDRATION – Find a product that hydrates your skin, whether this is a moisturiser or serum of some form. Any additional benefits such as added Vitamins, Acids or other skincare roles are preferred!
STEP #3: SPF – Now that your skin is clean and hydrated, it’s time to protect it! In Korea, using a product that has an SPF to protect your skin from environmental damage is considered essential, as prevention is than cure!
By skipping steps in your skincare routine, your skin will not get overloaded with products. This means you can save time, money and stop reoccurring skin issues such as clogged pores!
