Skin minimalism has transformed our skincare regimes over the past year. Its pared-back approach advocates for fewer products for the laid back, lockdown-inspired ritual that saves time and gets back to basics.
But could fewer ingredients really be the key to more effective skincare? Vogue details why less is indeed more:
“We’ve become accustomed to over-cleansing, over-exfoliating and overindulging our skin with too many active ingredients in pursuit of the ultimate visage.
What many of us don’t realise is that all this excessive skincare is stripping away our skin barrier, which keeps moisture in and pollutants out…
In the long run, overloading the skin with powerful ingredients can lead to skin sensitivity which is characterised by redness, dryness or a general feeling of skin discomfort.”
Discover the signs that your skincare routine is damaging your skin.
Here at Organic Apoteke, we’ve always been passionate about minimalist skincare. You can naturally give your skin what it needs to function at its best with multifunctional products.
With this, you’ll be avoiding the complex, trend heavy, multi-step, often invasive skincare routines in favour of a more skin-friendly ritual that will work wonders for the long term.
With skin minimalism and our organic, natural products, you can wave goodbye to 10- or 12-step skincare regimes.
All it takes is the following three steps to achieve beautiful, balanced, blissful skin, even in the face of stressful post-lockdown living.
Step 1: Cleanse
Cleansing is a vital step in anyone’s skincare regime. Your skin after all encounters a whole lot of grime and bacteria throughout the day and during those nighttime hours.
Keep pore-maximising, blemish-creating grime at bay by cleansing with our Active Face Cleanse Gel.
It’s great for oily, blemish-prone skin, as well as for anyone looking to make their pores less noticeable and their overall complexion more radiant.
Its healing herbal formulation soothes the skin and maintains a healthy bacterial balance in the microbiome, while deeply penetrating to brighten and clear.
Dampen the skin and massage the gel into the face and neck, avoiding the sensitive eye area. Work into a lather before rinsing away with cool water.
Step 2: Detoxify
Continue the cleansing theme by going deeper into the skin with our next product, the Detox Face Mask.
Its anti-pollution formula contains dead sea mud and amino acids to clean deeply and organically.
It helps to remove impurities, heals blemishes and buffs away dulling dead skin cells to help create flawless results free from blackheads and comedones.
Simply apply a thick layer of the Detox Face Mask onto the face and neck, and leave to set for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing with water.
You can use our Detox Face Mask as part of your evening skincare routine too by dabbing it onto spots or blemishes directly and leaving overnight.
We recommend you use our Detox Face Mask just once or twice a week.
Step 3: Hydrate
Start the day right with a good dose of skin hydration. Our award-winning Active Face Hydrating Gel is a healing, soothing way to moisturise daily.
It rebalances the skin, prevents breakouts, heals and protects to present an even, clear complexion that looks as good as it feels.
Repeat this routine each evening to see fantastic results in as little as 6 to 8 weeks.
