why a simple skincare routine is best: embracing minimalism in 2024

in today’s world, where the buzz of the latest skincare trends and the allure of complex routines dominate, there’s a growing movement that’s cutting through the noise with a clear, refreshing message: simplicity. at build (skincare), we’ve always believed in the power of minimalism. our philosophy? basic skincare that doesn’t compromise on quality. but why is a simple skincare routine often considered the best?


the science of simplicity

a minimalistic approach to skincare is not just a trend; it's a science-backed strategy for healthier skin. embracing a "less is more" philosophy allows your skin to maintain its natural balance and function optimally. overburdening it with too many products can sometimes lead to diminishing returns, where the benefits of each product are not fully realized. by focusing on what is truly essential, build (skincare) promotes a skincare routine that is both effective and simple.


achieving minimalism: our approach

at build (skincare), minimalism is at the core of everything we do, from our curated product range to our meticulous formulations. we believe that every ingredient should serve a purpose. our approach to minimalism isn’t just about having fewer products; it’s about ensuring that each product is crafted with intention, where every ingredient plays a critical role in the unique textures and properties of the products.

our formulations are designed to perform fundamental functions essential for healthy skin, utilizing simple ingredients (like glycerin and petrolatum) that work synergistically to hydrate, moisturize, and cleanse without unnecessary additives. this careful selection process ensures unmatched quality, performance, and aesthetic appeal, staying true to our commitment to simplicity and effectiveness.
