At Five Dot Botanics we are passionate about minimalism. It’s the main driving force behind our is minimalist skincare brand.
We want to share with you why we feel that skincare products with fewer ingredients are better.
What is minimalist skincare?
We should explain what minimalist skincare is first. In our article about minimalist beauty we talk about why minimalism is at the core of what we do.
Increasingly, skincare is packed with lots of ingredients. Synthetics, fragrance, cheap fillers and other questionable products.
The dizzying array of ingredients can often mean it’s difficult to know if any are working or, more of a concern, what is irritating the skin.
At Five Dot Botanics our skincare ingredients are all natural and vegan certified. We have carefully chosen only 5 ingredients per product.
All the ingredients work in harmony with one another to help give you healthy and strong skin.
We’ve focused on what your skin really needs. Not the latest trends or fads. Just powerful plant-based, natural skincare that your skin will love.
Five Reasons Why You Should Consider Minimalist Skincare Products
1. Fewer Skincare Ingredients
Let’s look deeper at what we touched upon above. Skincare products with a long list of ingredients increases the risk of irritation. Plus, it can be incredibly difficult to pinpoint which ingredient (or ingredients) are causing irritation.
We don’t believe in putting unnecessary ingredients in our products. Fragrance is a notorious irritant. Beyond making the product smell nice (sometimes!) it does nothing to boost the efficacy.
Instead, we focus on ingredients that are proven to increase the skin’s health.
We include only what your skin needs and nothing more.
2. Complicated Skincare Routines Could be Damaging Your Skin.
We don’t like to overcomplicate things at Five Dot Botanics. Our products were created with a simple, fuss-free skincare routine in mind.
The 10-step Korean routine has gained a lot of popularity in recent years. Using lots of products that includes harsh ingredients could be causing your skin more harm than good.
Using too many products in your skincare routine can run the risk of harming your skin’s acid mantle. Paring back your routine to minimal products with fewer ingredients can help strengthen your skin while being gentle to the acid mantle.
Simple is often better when it comes to skincare routines.
3. It’s Better for the Environment
Not only is minimalist skincare kinder to your skin it’s also kinder to the environment. Minimalist skincare is generally low impact as it uses less resources from the planet.
Most minimalist skincare brands rely on a small, sustainable supply and production chain.
We’ve also made all our skincare products vegan-friendly. There are no animal products or by-products in any of our skincare.
We opt for botanical-based skincare at Five Dot Botanics.
People have used natural skincare ingredients from plants, nuts, and flowers for thousands of years. With technological advances natural skincare is more powerful than ever.
Changing to a minimalist and vegan skincare routine will help reduce your own impact on the planet.
4. It’s Part of a Wider Outlook on Life.
Minimalist skincare is part of a minimalist lifestyle. Skincare with minimalism at its heart is based on longevity and stripping back to the essentials.
It’s not about being caught up on the consumer treadmill or always searching for the newest shiny thing. There’s no fulfilment in that as it’s never-ending.
Instead, we choose to focus on what really matters. Deeper connections, a freedom from consumerism and a slower approach to living.
We prefer to focus on buying better and less. This is how our key ethos came about:
Do more with less.
5. It’s Timesaving.
If we still haven’t convinced you we’ve thrown in this practical reason - minimalist skincare is fuss-free and hugely timesaving!
We all appreciate a good pamper from time to time, but our lives are so busy it’s difficult to do daily. Incorporating a minimalist skincare routine with highly effective products mean you get the most from your time and skincare.
There’s no need to follow an overly complicated skincare routine to get the best results. Focusing on what’s good for the skin is where you’ll see results.
We also believe that skincare is a form of self-care for everyone. Following a simple skincare routine is an easy way to help you relax in the evening or get prepared for the day ahead.
We hope we’ve at least convinced you to try a more minimalist approach to skincare. It’s better for you and the environment.
