28 Jan KonMari your beauty routine
Have you binge-watched Tidying Up With Marie Kondo yet? (Or turned an episode off halfway through to start decluttering your own house?)
For the uninitiated, Marie Kondo’s “KonMari” method is a system of tidying and decluttering your space, with the goal of keeping only the necessities and things that spark joy.
As professionals in the beauty industry, some of us (🙋🏻♀️🙋🏽♀️🙋🏼♀️) have stockpiled more products, tools, and beauty doodads than we could ever realistically use. We could all do with a little more simplicity in our lives, and being more in tune with the things we surround ourselves with.
People around the world have been drawn to this philosophy not only due to its effectiveness, but also because it places great importance on being mindful, introspective and forward-looking.
We’re sharing some of our favorite brands and services that we feel embody the KonMari philosophy and spark joy for us. Let us know your favorites, and how you’re tidying your beauty stash!
Some of our services can help you cut down on beauty products you use every day, as well as save time getting ready in the morning. For example:
|After this service…||You may not need…|
|Lash extensions or last lift + tint||Mascara or lash-lengthening serums|
|Laser skin therapy, facials, peels, and exfoliation treatments||Foundations and concealers to hide skin imperfections|
|Laser hair removal or waxing||Razors and shaving cream|
|Brow tint||Brow pencils and powders|
Beauty, luxury, and sustainability — all in one. This high-end organic makeup brand utilizes their own signature “intelligent refill system” to reduce waste and (bonus) save you money. Reduce the clutter with the Collector’s Kit — all your must-haves in one beautiful, convenient package.
Skincare doesn’t have to be a complicated affair. With only six hardworking products in this clean line, DermYoung produces real results without fillers like perfumes and preservatives. Our MedSpa Director is a huge fan: “I love this line because it’s totally clean,” she says. “It can be used by anyone, and in addition to your existing skincare routine.”
