Skip Care: Keep it Simple

How “lazy” skin care is condensing beauty rituals down to the fundamentals.

Last year saw the end of the 10-step skin care routine as we know it and the emergence of “skip care,” a shift toward hard-working, multitasking skin care products that shorten routines without sacrificing results.  Expect to see more of the same throughout 2020.

Adored by millennials, this restrictive skin care diet is actually very much in line with dermatologists’ long-time mantra of cleanse, tone, moisturize.  The only difference is that this lazier beauty regimen focuses more on clean, hydrate and protect.

Simplicity works

The philosophy doesn’t just apply to the face.  Beeswax for example, is well known to work for dry, cracked skin on hands, feet and everywhere in between.  Beeswax carries antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that are essential to healing and preventing skin problems.  Former spa director, Diane Cook, developed a product called BeeSpa based on a beekeeper’s grandmother’s all-natural recipe because it got the job done, no accompanying products needed.
