K-Beauty’s NEW Routine is Skincare Simplified:

While some people love the self-pampering time it takes to complete a typical seven step K-beauty skincare routine twice a day, the rest of us either don’t have the time or finances it requires to purchase and then apply all those products.  But we still want the same level of skincare benefits.  The new K-beauty trend is “skip-care” which basically means all the benefits of a seven step routine, using fewer products.  Basically, it is a sort of “skincare detox”, eliminating extra steps using only essential ingredients to cleanse, hydrate, treat, plump, refine, tone, protect, and glow. 

Summer is the best time to minimize your skincare regime so you spend less time in front of the mirror and more time in the fresh air.  Look for products that do double or even triple duty but give all the same benefits.  Use a toner that doesn’t strip skin’s natural protective barrier and gives the skin a burst of moisture at the same time.  Try a moisturizer that refines skin tone, tightens pores, controls excess oil and imparts a glow.   Mineral sunscreen with ingredients to trap and hold moisture, while protecting the skin with antioxidants at the same time is a win-win.  Choose an eye cream that hydrates and smooths while reducing under-eye puffiness and dark circles.  Night-time face creams that secure the moisture barrier of skin, promote cell renewal, protect with antioxidants, and treat fine lines and uneven skin tone cover a lot of skincare concerns in one go.  Apply it over a powerhouse serum with gentle AHA and BHA acids that gently exfoliate, reduces pore size, treats hyper-pigmentation, promotes cell renewal, and provides hydration. 

It’s not only a good time to reduce the number of skincare steps to achieve amazing skin, but a great opportunity to choose products that are less harmful to both you and the environment.  I am choosing my products with Sephora’s stamp “Sephora Clean” which are free of these ingredients: sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, formaldehydes, formaldehyde-releasing agents, phthalates, mineral oil, retinyl palmitate, oxybenzone, coal tar, hydroquinone, triclosan, and triclocarban.  All skincare, makeup and hair brands with the Clean seal have less than one percent synthetic fragrances.  Here are some of my top choices of innovative products that will guarantee that I will not spend the entire season indoors performing a time consuming seven step routine to achieve amazing healthy skin that glows:
