Ordinary Skincare: 5 Ways to Achieve Glow with Minimal Effort

I believe in simplicity and prefer quality and classy over what’s trending and hyped. To me, “simple” never goes out of fashion.

And now that I am on the path of minimalism, I infuse simplicity in every aspect of my life. Whether it’s lifestyle choices or skincare, my priorities are quality and minimal effort.

We often get caught up in elaborate routines, chasing the latest trends and products, only to end up feeling overwhelmed and disappointed. But the reality is achieving healthy, glowing skin isn’t complicated at all. In fact, with minimal investments and a disciplined but the ordinary skincare routine, you can simplify your approach and enhance your natural radiance with minimal effort.

Here are five simple steps to achieve skin that glows from within:

1. Keep It Simple, Keep It Consistent

The key to achieving glowing skin is consistency. Instead of overwhelming your skin with many products, focus on a basic skincare routine that you can stick to. Start with a gentle cleanser, followed by a hydrating serum, and finish with a moisturizer. Do not keep changing your products based on Instagram reels. With minimal products, prioritize only what matters.

Remember not to judge based on the price tag. Some of the products that work wonders are often budget-friendly and stress on the ordinary skincare! 😊

2. Stay Hydrated, Inside and Out

Hydration is critical to achieving glowing skin. Drink plenty of water (go exactly the opposite of minimal in this case!) throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. Additionally, consider using a hydrating serum or moisturizer to lock in moisture and keep your skin plump and radiant.

Trust me, all those scoldings of our Mum to drink more water would not have gone in vain had we listened. ☹

3. Nourish Your Skin with What Matters

A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats can provide your skin with the nutrients it needs to stay healthy and glowing. Additionally, getting enough sleep is crucial for skin health, as it allows your skin to repair and regenerate overnight. Together, a balanced diet and adequate sleep can be the most minimal yet effective way to care for your skin.

The saying “you are what you eat” holds true when it comes to your skin (the ordinary skincare secret you can trust). Stick to it. ❤️

4. Listen to Your Skin

Yes, being a good listener never fails, even when it comes to your skin. Everyone’s skin is different, so paying attention to how your skin reacts to different products and treatments is essential. That’s the minimal you can do for your simple skincare. Be smart and immediately stop using a product if it is causing irritation or breakouts. Choose only what suits you.

Not everything that works for the influencer you just watched will work for you. Be smart. Decide wisely. 😏

5. Protect Your Skin

Sun damage is one of the leading causes of premature aging and dull skin. Make sure to use broad-spectrum sunscreen every day, even on cloudy days. This simple skincare step can help protect your skin from harmful UV rays and keep it looking youthful and radiant (in the most simple and minimal way possible).

Make your sunscreen your best friend, and you will hear it sing along, “You’ve got a friend in me!” 😉


Achieving glowing skin doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming. By keeping your skincare routine simple and consistent and listening to your skin’s needs, you can achieve a healthy, radiant complexion with minimal effort and investment.

In fact, I recently came across this brand, Seek Skincare and Wellness, which follows skin minimalism. Their skincare essentials exactly fit my needs. They are a “no toxin,” “no paraben,” and “cruelty-free” brand, and these are things that I always look for before choosing any products. I am in love with their sunscreen and would suggest you to check it out too.

So why not simplify your basic skincare routine today and let your natural beauty shine through?
