Skinimalism: When Less Skincare is More

Skinimalism: When Less Skincare is More

Have you ever heard the saying, “Less is more”? Perhaps you’ve heard it when watching Tidying Up With Marie Kondo on Netflix. Maybe it’s crossed your path when reading one of the thousands of articles online carrying a title that rings similar to, “Minimalism: The Secret to Enlightenment or Just Another Fad?”

Whether you love or loathe the modern conversation and lifestyle choices that come with living a less-is-more lifestyle, it’s a trend we believe is here to stay. We’ll tell you why.

Less quantity = more quality

This is essentially the mantra of a minimalist lifestyle, and this principle doesn’t only apply to choosing one luxury item over five cheap ones. It can apply to all aspects of life.

Take your skincare for example. 

Did you know that an elaborate and expensive skincare regimen might actually be doing your skin more harm than good?

In an article written by Kathleen Baird-Murray for British Vogue Magazine, she quotes cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Sam Bunting, who argues, “double-cleansing needs to go” “I was seeing a lot of balm cleansing followed by acid toners, with a lot of money spent on both. But the combination [of] both irritates and clogs”. Furthermore, she believes “trying new things constantly encourages a lack of consistency.”

We couldn’t agree with Dr. Bunting more.

Introducing Skinimalism

Allow us to introduce you to skinimalism, the practice of cutting out the excess and using just a few skincare products in your daily routine.

With this in mind, BellaVita’s founder and formulator, Karen Chelini, created our skincare line meticulously. Using only the right ingredients in the right amounts and at the right concentrations. 

Karen kept efficacy at the forefront of her formulations to create a natural line of skincare products — that can all be used together or interchangeably — to provide your skin with the protection and nourishment it needs to thrive.

With the exception of a cleanser, BellaVita carries a total of six facial products to satisfy your skin all year long.

For some, this might be music to your ears. For others, a nightmare. To address any potential resistance toward this seemingly too-simple skincare repertoire, Karen created Skintuitions.

Skintuitions are our solution to complex and unsustainable skincare routines. They offer quick and personalized skincare solutions for every day. 

Find Your Skintution

We’ve found that most people have the time (or desire) to keep up with a tedious, hour-long routine on a daily basis. In addition to that, more and more people are finding that an elaborate skincare routine may not actually be what’s best for their skin. 

With Skintuitions, you can achieve luxurious, spa-like skincare fast, and without compromising quality. 

Since all of our products are made with a precise amount of high-quality ingredients in their most efficacious strengths, you can have happy, healthy skin all year round by simply swapping in or out just six of our formulas.
