5 Tips for a Minimal Skincare Routine With Maximum Results

If you’re anything like me, life is a whirlwind of activities, responsibilities, and finding time for a complicated skincare routine feels almost impossible. But guess what? You don’t need a cabinet full of products to achieve glowing, youthful skin. A minimal skincare routine can be just as effective, if not more so, when done right. Here are five tips to help you simplify your skincare while maximizing results, especially if you’re noticing signs of aging, laklustre skin and want to take control.

5 tips to build your minimal skincare routine

5 Top Tips For Minimal Skincare Routine 

1. Cleanse Gently but Thoroughly

The foundation of any skincare routine is a good cleanse. As we age, our skin becomes more delicate, so it’s crucial to use a gentle cleanser that won’t strip away the protective layer on the skin. Look for an oil cleanser and packed with nourishing ingredients. Cleansing twice daily—morning and night—removes impurities, makeup, and environmental pollutants that can accelerate aging.

Pro Tip: Massage your cleanser into your skin for about 60 seconds to ensure it penetrates deeply and works effectively. This simple step can significantly improve your skin's texture and appearance over time.

2. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Hydration is key to keeping your skin plump and youthful. As we age, our skin tends to lose moisture more quickly, leading to dryness and fine lines. This is because the outermost layer of the skin thins and gets more prone to Trans epidermal Water Loss. Incorporate a high-quality hydrating serum or essence into your routine that helps hydrate the skin and help it hold on to it.

Pro Tip: Apply your essence on damp skin. This helps lock in the moisture, making your skin feel softer and more hydrated.

3. Nourish with a Face Oil

After your serum, the next step is a nourishing face oil. Look for an oil that is rich in antioxidants and vitamins, which help combat free radicals and support skin health. Always choose an oil formulated with unrefined, organic plant oils for best results.

Pro Tip: Don’t forget your neck and décolletage. These areas are often neglected but show signs of aging just as much as your face.

4. Protect Your Skin with SPF

No matter your age, sunscreen is non-negotiable. UV rays are one of the biggest culprits behind premature aging, leading to wrinkles, sunspots, and even skin cancer. A broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher is essential daily, rain or shine. It might seem like an extra step, but it’s the best defense against skin damage.

Pro Tip: Opt for a sunscreen that doubles as a moisturizer to streamline your routine further. Some formulas even come tinted, providing a bit of coverage while protecting your skin.

5. Embrace Minimal Makeup

Minimal skincare also means embracing minimal makeup. Heavy foundations and powders can settle into fine lines, making them more noticeable. Instead, choose lightweight, hydrating foundations or BB creams that enhance your natural beauty without masking it. A bit of concealer for trouble spots, a swipe of mascara, and a touch of blush can make you look fresh and radiant in minutes.

Pro Tip: Focus on your skincare first. Healthy, well-moisturized skin provides a better canvas for makeup, meaning you’ll need less of it to achieve a beautiful look.

Incorporate Face Massage and Gua Sha

Adding a few minutes of face massage or gua sha to your routine can do wonders for your skin. These techniques improve circulation, reduce puffiness, and help your skincare products absorb better. Plus, it’s a relaxing ritual that can reduce stress—a known contributor to skin issues. 

Massaging the skin regularly will help the skin stay elastic, hydrated and subtle.

Pro Tip: Use a few drops of facial oil to reduce friction and enhance the benefits of your massage. Our Jenny Nordic Facial Oil Serum is perfect for this, providing nourishment while allowing your gua sha tool to glide smoothly over your skin.
