Korean beauty is well known for making the wonders on the skin. It can consist of as many as 15 steps. Every product nurture the skin. However, famous 10 or 15 steps of the Korean skincare is something barely anyone has time for. No surprise that Koreans, especially millennials started promoting skip-care routine.
What is skip-care?
Skip-care concept is a response to a busy lifestyle we all have. It reflects a skin care method which focuses on identifying the essential ingredients your skin requires and eliminating unnecessary ingredients and products. Result? Simpler and quicker skincare routine.
This approach does not mean you give up on nourishment, hydration or preventative steps to protect your skin. This approach is about using fewer products without sacrificing results and achieving balanced skin. It is suitable for every age and skin type. The skip-care does not mean you have to quit from using your favourite serums or sheet masks. However, it will give you the solution to these moments in life you can not find time for more than just a basic skin-routine.
A perfect example of a skip-care is using hydrating toners to the 7 skin method. It is a great solution to minimize the skincare products and can satisfy the needs of a toner, an essence, and even a serum.
How to start skip-care?
To start a skip-care it is worth finding the right multi-tasking products which will satisfy the needs of your skin. We recommend you focus on the functionality, texture and ingredients of skincare products.
