Heard about “skinimalism”? It’s the move towards barely-there makeup that allows glowing, healthy-looking skin to take centre stage. According to social media platform Pinterest, it’s one of this year’s biggest beauty trends. Still, while dewy foundations and cleverly placed highlighter can help you create a great “no makeup” look, the first prize will always be truly radiant skin. But for this, you’re going to want to invest in a brilliant skincare routine, not powders and paint.
Glow baby glow
Let’s talk about light! When a surface is incredibly smooth and polished it becomes reflective. A rough-textured surface, however, will always be dull-looking. This, in a nutshell, is why exfoliation is key to radiant-looking skin. Still, not all exfoliators are created equally. Many still make the mistake of using those that are extremely grainy, causing micro-tears in their skin that lead to inflammation. This is why, at Lamelle Research Laboratories, we believe chemical exfoliation is best and serve up a brilliant selection of in-office peels. We can also help you peel and reveal at home with our Correctives Cathepzyme 2 Exfoliator. It contains Cathepsin D, an enzyme produced by our own bodies, to stimulate your skin’s natural exfoliation process. Use it two or three times a week and you’ll soon start to enjoy smoother, more radiant-looking skin.
Something else you’ll want in your skinimalism artillery is Lamelle Skin Essence Rejuvenate Priming Liquid range. Due to its refreshing, water-like texture you might make the mistake of considering it a toner, but it’s so much more than that. An innovative skin care priming fluid that will boost your skin’s hydration, calm irritation and serve up a gorgeous-looking glow in a matter of weeks. Another reason to adore our Skin Essence is the fact that it prepares your skin to gain maximum benefit from any other active ingredients you use after it. Speaking of which…
Brighten like a boss
If it’s a gorgeous glow you’re after, you’ll want to know all about vitamin C. Not only does this superstar antioxidant stimulate your skin to create more collagen but it’s well known for its skin-brightening benefits. Still, it’s a case of buyer beware. Many products will be quick to tell you they include vitamin C, but it won’t be in one of its more powerful forms, nor will it be at a useful concentration. Happily, our Correctives Recharge CE cream contains 20% ultra-potent ascorbic acid. We even offer Correctives Vita C 30 that contains 30%, the highest concentration of non-prescription ascorbic acid on the block!
Still, as Spiderman would say, with great power comes responsibility. At Lamelle, we realise not everyone can tolerate such a high concentration of vitamin C. As a result, we poured tireless research into creating our Correctives Vita C-Lipid Serum. It contains a very particular form of lipid-soluble vitamin C called tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate. Due to its affinity with oil, it’s able to penetrate deeper into the skin without causing irritation where it can deliver magnificent results. This way, even those with sensitive skin can get their glow on!
The bottom line
Ultimately, if you’re wanting to get in on the skinimalism trend, you can do so today by creating the illusion of barefaced beauty with makeup. Or you can invest in the kind of products that – in just a few weeks – will make you proud to show off your naturally radiant skin. So what’s it going to be? Are you ready for your glow up?
