2022's Latest Skincare Trend: Skinimalism

2022's Latest Skincare Trend: Skinimalism

With the likes of skin cycling and an excess of skincare and beauty products having dominated the skincare sphere for much of 2022, the skinimalism trend is a refreshing (and much more affordable) take on how to get the most out of your skincare. It showcases the beauty of a minimalistic but still luxurious routine to pamper your skin and keep it glowing. 

Often with beauty products, less is more! Having a set skincare routine can help to train your skin and reduces the likelihood of skin reactions or irritation. Not only this, but most skincare takes time to work, and the application of (most) products is most effective when used daily rather than every few days. On top of these fabulous benefits to your skin, positive environmental factors also come into play with skinimalism. This trend encourages a conscious consumption of beauty products over an excess consumption that can often result in products expiring before they are finished or being wasted.

Despite using fewer products, there are still ways to extend the time you spend on your skincare if the ritual is what you like the most about an extensive skincare regimen. For example, ice rollers are fantastic in the morning and can help wake your skin up. Otherwise, following the application of oil, Rose Quartz Rollers, or other Gua Sha facial tools can help to sculpt the skin and extend the self-care aspect of a ‘fuller’ routine. On the other hand, if something quick is all you want and need, sticking to the basics of cleanse, tone, and moisturise can be more than enough when you’re picking the right products!

The Hark & Zander range of premium natural skincare is formulated with sensitive skin in mind and has just the right amount of products to slip into the skinimalism trend. 

How the H&Z skincare line works and how the products should be applied;


The beginning of this fabulous yet minimal routine is our HempPurify Emulsifying Oil Cleanser. This cleanser is perfect used both morning and night and can wash the sleep off your face, ready for your morning skincare, or wipe away your waterproof makeup at the end of the day. 


The second step is our terrific HempHydrate Refreshing Gel Toner, best used on clean skin. Its cooling gel formula calms skin, and the additions of Hyaluronic Acid and Aloe Vera mean it will nourish and moisturise your skin rather than strip it. This toner can be used morning and night before your moisturiser!

Face Oil

The HempTonic Face Oil is our hero product and is amazing for nourishing the skin. Its formulation with Hempheart Oil acts quickly to soothe your skin. With anti-inflammatory and youth-promoting properties, it is perfect for all skin types. 


Hark & Zander has two amazing Crèmes to choose from depending on whether you are applying in the morning or at night. Our recommendation to finish off your routine in the morning is with our HempBright Face the Day Crème. Its nourishing, youth-promoting, and antioxidant-filled formula is the perfect base for your makeup or to be worn alone to maintain your glow all day. Be sure to follow this with something containing a high SPF to help protect against sun damage!

Otherwise, to finish off your routine at night, we have the fantastic HempRestore Good Night Crème. This luxurious formula will lock in all the moisture we have just applied and contribute its profoundly nourishing properties. With Bakuchiol acting as a natural retinol and OceanDerMX’s Restore&Protect formula, your nightly skincare is complete!
