A look at the minimalist ‘skip care’ beauty routine

By now, many are already obsessed with the magic of Korean skincare.

Who can forget life-changing products such as cleansing balms, sheet masks and essences? Not to mention well-known methods, such as double cleansing and a 10-plus-step routine, are used by many skincare junkies and celebrities everywhere.

The popular 10-plus-step skincare regimen is said to produce glowing and youthful skin every Korean celebrity has. But it’s hard to commit to this routine especially when you’re lazy or you’re on a budget.

According to beauty platform Byrdie’s interview with cosmetics brand Amore Pacific, Korean millennials have shifted to the “skip care” routine to maintain their beautiful skin. It’s a method that allows you to use minimal products that provide essential nutrients your skin needs.

Let’s be real, not everyone has the time or money to commit to a full skincare routine. But with “skip care,” it’s perfect when you’re looking for a more minimalist approach to take care of your skin.

Here are some products to help you get started with your “skip care” regimen.
