As you may or may not have already heard, clean beauty is more than just a #natural movement. Similarly to the food you choose to put in your body, the products you choose to put on your skin make a huge difference on your health and wellbeing.
Over the past few years, clean beauty products have become just as luxurious and effective as their chemical counterparts without the potential detriments to your health. That sounds like a no-brainer to us! Especially knowing that on average women use more than 160 chemicals on a daily basis in their body care, hair care, and skincare routines as well as with their makeup and perfumes, etc. Several of these ingredients have been confirmed as potential endocrine disruptors, skin/eye irritants, carcinogenic and neurotoxic!
It might be overwhelming in the beginning when you decide to “Make the Switch” to clean beauty.
We are here to help guide you through where to start, what budget-friendly products in your routine to switch out first, and what is really ‘clean’ and what is not- especially in a market that is flooded with greenwashed and non-authentic brands trying to align themselves with the natural movement.
We have summarized below an easy plan to help you make the switch:
1. Basic routine switch up: Start off by switching out your basic routine and leave your serums, treatments, and oils for the next step. Your basic skincare routine includes a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer - and add a deep cleansing mask once a week. You’ll see how easy it is!
2. Body Shower Gel: In parallel, you can “clean up” your body shower gel. With just one product, you will have covered the largest skin surface on your body and the greatest amount of absorption points.
3.Deodorant: Natural deodorant is another important switch to make in your routine, especially for the women out there! Remember the proximity of sweat glands to the breast glands! There are major concerns regarding aluminum filled anti-perspirants that prevent your body from flushing away all the toxins naturally the way that it should. Fall is a perfect time to make the switch to a clean deodorant because the weather is milder, making it a perfect transitory period for your body to release all the bad toxins from chemical deodorants.
4. Start out small: In order to make the switch the least overwhelming on you (and your wallet!) as possible, the next time one of your regular products runs out, go ahead and swap it for its clean alternative. There are a lot of clean products out there- trust us!
5. Get an expert advice: Unfortunately, not everything labeled “natural” is actually 100% natural and safe. If you do not know what ingredients are non-clean, you can visit us in store or get in touch with us by phone, Whatsapp or Instagram and we will make the switch easy for you! Our team will help you identify your skincare concerns, provide you with expert advice, lots of samples and teach you effective clean beauty routines and techniques!
