The new trend of skinmalism, and why you’ll be glad you adopted a simpler daily routine. 

It is with great joy to us that minimalism has become a rising trend. Mass consumption and consumerism is on the way out and there is a shining light at the end of the tunnel that less might actually be more.

Marie condo, the minimalist movie and wellness advocates over the globe have all followed the movement and philosophy of less is more and have uncovered a happier healthier life for those who follow this lifestyle, and we agree!

Skinmalism takes this to the beauty cupboards and skincare graveyards of skincare fanatics across the globe. 12 step routines are on their way out and being replaced with highly active all-in-one products, giving consumers more time back in their day to enjoy the things that really matter. *Not to mention the added bonus to the environment (Reducing 12 bottles each month will drastically help our growing climate crisis.)*

At Vela Days we have pioneered a simple, 3-step skincare routine that extolls all the virtues of skinmalism. Our highly concentrated solutions use new cosmetic technology, active ingredients and a core CannaComplex® technology to outperform 12-step beauty treatments in terms of time and results.


So, what is minimalism? 

Minimalism is defined as "a style or technique (as in music, literature, or design) that is characterized by extreme simplicity and restraint.". Minimalism has grown in popularity since the 1960s, when bohemian counterculturists started adopting a life of simplicity, free from the pretences and excesses of the early 20th century.

So then what is skinmalism?

Skinmalism is the new trend of minimalism when applied to your skincare routine. Applied to beauty, this means that skinmalism is all about stripping away the extraneous steps and products that don't do anything for your skin. It’s about using fewer products that are more effective and efficient. A skinmalist beauty routine should be quick, easy, and most importantly – it should work. It is skincare that is hardworking, not hard work. Giving yourself the truest luxury (aside from beautiful skin); time.

Why is a minimalist approach to beauty gaining traction?

Most importantly, people are starting to realise that a minimalist lifestyle can help reduce stress on our day to day lives and also the environment.

When it comes to our appearance and our beauty routines, we have placed an increasing amount of pressure on our beauty routines to have the latest ingredient, the latest product and we have been caught in a spiral, always looking for the next upgrade and miracle treatment. Ironically; too much stress/consumerism places our body into overdrive and can instead lead to wrinkles, dark circles and other forms of ageing (not to mention the increasing skincare graveyard we are all accumulating).

In the same vein, a minimalist approach to beauty is also becoming popular because it is more sustainable. People are increasingly aware of the need to reduce their environmental impact, and a minimalist lifestyle is one way to do that.

Skinmalism is also backed by professional dermatologists. Going back to basics with your skin and skincare can be better for it in the long run. Read on to find out why.

What are the benefits of a skinmalist beauty routine?

There are many benefits to a skinmalist beauty routine. Perhaps the most obvious benefit is that it’s faster and more efficacious (with the right products). More time saved with fewer steps means that you can spend more time with your family, exercising, or simply enjoying your own day on your terms.

Skinmalism is also more affordable. Highly concentrated solutions often last longer than traditional beauty products, and you need less of a product to achieve the same results. Where cost-savings are concerned, skinmalism makes a little go a long way.

A skinmalist beauty routine is also more gentle on your skin. Because you’re using fewer products, your skin isn’t exposed to as many potential irritants as traditional beauty routines. 

Skinmalist products are sustainable. They use less wasteful packaging, and often have options available for refills without any waste. Skinmalist products are also often made from natural, sustainable ingredients - especially those that are regenerative, and can be grown and harvested over and over again.

Why should I choose skinmalism?

In a world that is becoming increasingly fast-paced and stressful, a skinmalist beauty routine is a welcome respite. It’s a chance to simplify your life and focus on the things that are really important.
