Oh that’s really interesting! This isn’t actually too far from what I do after I get out of the shower - often I’ll slap on any ole thick moisturiser, then wipe it off instead of cleansing if I haven’t worn makeup that day.
I think there’s a lot of focus on cleansing the skin that isn’t justified - I think often people assume if they’re breaking out they should use a stronger cleanser, which definitely isn’t the case, at least in my experience.
My housemate who has BEAUTIFUL skin does this too - it’s her only skincare step I believe. Though, I think she has genetics working in her favour - so lucky
