The beauty landscape is shifting. We’re leaving behind the heavily contoured, put-together look and embracing simplicity and targeted skincare routines. Enter ‘skinimalism’: the movement that pares it all back and returns to the basics. 

With a focus on the hard-working hero actives that truly nourish and support the skin's health and radiance, skinimalism invites us to celebrate the skin we’re in.

Let’s dive into why less really is more when it comes to revelling in your natural beauty! 

Understand what your skin needs 

Skinimalism goes hand-in-hand with understanding the skin's own biology and physiology. Our skin has its own microbiome, a complex ecosystem fully equipped to take care of itself. According to research, maintaining this delicate balance is key to protecting the skin barrier and maintaining your skin’s health  – which is why it is so important to be conscious of using skincare products that support rather than disrupt this natural harmony1.

View your skincare as a supportive tool to love and nourish your complexion. Gift your skin with natural, gentle yet effective products proven to support and strengthen. Created for all skin types, our thoughtfully designed 4-Step Vitamin Skincare System delivers science-backed vitamins, botanicals and actives directly to your skin, making it easier than ever to achieve the consistency and results you deserve. It’s skincare that is pure and powerful, yet simple to use and understand so you can ditch the complex 8-10 step protocols.

Less truly is more, but consistency and quality are still important. Practise self-care through a pared back, regular, carefully selected skincare routine to build inner confidence that radiates outwards. 

Remember: skin isn’t perfect. It’s completely natural to have pores, freckles, scars or the occasional pimple – these are all natural characteristics of filter-free skin. 


Love the skin you’re in 

Instead of comparing, start to practise accepting and embracing your skin as it is. The goal is healthy skin you feel confident in, not ‘perfect’ skin. Your skin is so much more than an aesthetic part of your appearance. It’s our largest organ, working hard to shield and nurture us, while performing a plethora of vital functions. There’s a lot of gratitude to show our skin! 

You can experiment with positive affirmations to get your skin confidence back on track, such as:

  • “I love and accept my skin exactly as it is now.”
  • “I am radiant within and this shines through my skin.”
  • “I am grateful for my skin for covering me in protection.”


Glow from within

True beauty also starts with the way we nourish ourselves from the inside out for a healthy, radiant complexion. Think of it as building a strong foundation – when we nurture our bodies with the right nutrients, it shows in the health and appearance of our skin. Here’s how… 

  1. Hydration is key: Aim for 2-3 litres of water daily and include hydrating fruits and vegetables like watermelon, cucumber, and celery.
  2. Omegas are your best friends: Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are essential for healthy skin cell function2. Include oily fish (salmon, tuna), flaxseeds, chia seeds and walnuts in your meals.
  3. A rainbow on your plate: Tropical fruits such as mango and papaya, and green, leafy vegetables like spinach and kale are packed with antioxidants that fight free radical damage and support a true lit-from-within glow3
  4. Load up on healthy fats: Consciously include healthy fats into your meals! Think avocado, olive oil and nuts. These fats nourish the skin from within, keeping it plump and glowing4.
  5. Prioritise quality sleep: Aim for 7-8 hours of quality sleep each night. As you sleep, your skin uses this time to repair and regenerate5.
  6. Manage stress: Chronic stress has a big impact on your skin6! Try gentle yoga, meditation or even spending time in nature with a 10-minute walk outside. 
  7. Consider targeted supplements: A supplement containing a potent blend of science-back antioxidants can be a great way to further support your skin’s health and radiance.

Now is the time to revel in your own radiance and prioritise healthy, cared-for skin over heavy makeup application. It’s about feeling comfortable and confident in your natural, nourished glow!
