Skinimalism in 2022: Is the Less-is-More Skincare Trend Here to Stay?

Skinimalism in 2022: Is the Less-is-More Skincare Trend Here to Stay?

Skin·i·mal·ism; noun; a trend that delights in the notion that less is more when it comes to skincare. Leave that 12-step routine in your past, and enjoy the minimalist approach to self-care.

Skinimalism made its "beauty" mark online in 2021, with Pinterest highlighting the movement in its Trend Prediction Report saying:

"It’s the end of the caked-on make-up look. Pinners will embrace slow beauty and let their natural skin texture shine through. This new ‘effortlessly chic’ routine is simple and sustainable."


It can be tempting to try all the new products on the market as we yearn for the skincare collections our favorite influencers flaunt on social media. While it is fun to try new things, our skin does better with consistency. Skincare products take time to work and our skin needs a chance to get used to new ingredients. In this way, sometimes the less you mix products the better, especially if you have sensitive skin. 

Dermatologist Dendy Engelman told Town and Country, “There are ways to cut out steps, but I don’t want people to think it’s wash and go. We need to still be mindful of proper skin care.” Keep in mind the four steps dermatologists recommend we do every day: cleanse, treat, moisturize, protect.

Keep it simple with Oxygenetix breathable topicals. Choose products that are multi-taskers to cut down on steps and be more sustainable. Oxygenetix skincare and makeup are not only nourishing for the skin, they act as protectants and improve skin health and appearance. For the ultimate skinimalist routine, cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser, prime and moisturize with Oxygenetix Hydro-Matrix, and apply your favorite Oxygenetix Foundation to protect your skin all day and promote cellular growth. 

So is the skinimalist trend here to stay? Beauty expert Barbara Sturm told Vogue in a recent article about skincare trends for 2022, “I expect that 2022 will see more people opting for simpler skin-care routines and a minimalistic approach. After a few trials and errors, many of our clients are starting to realize that less is more when it comes to skin care and that using too many products doesn’t guarantee effective results; it can sometimes even do the opposite.”

If you want to embody a minimalistic approach to skincare, choose products that will nourish and protect your skin, and don't veer off from your routine too often. Consistency is key with any type of growth, skin health included.
