From food to beauty, lots of women are becoming more mindful of what they put in and on their bodies. Making the change to ‘clean’ products may be trendy right now, but this isn’t just a passing fad you should consider taking advantage of. Choosing products that are not only less harmful to the environment, but also non toxic to you will have undeniable long-term benefits.
Now I know you’re probably thinking it’s impossible to find “clean” beauty products that are just effective as the ones you’re currently using, but that’s no longer the case. Tons of beauty brands are now making amazing non-toxic skincare, hair and makeup products that still do the job.
If you’re ready to make the switch to a “cleaner” beauty routine, here’s how to get started:
1. Read the ingredient labels. Like food, makeup and skincare products have the ingredients listed on the packaging. To make sure your products are non-toxic, make sure to avoid ingredients such as parabens, petrolatum, and coal tar dyes.
2. Find go-to brands. There are a lot of brands that strictly make “clean” beauty products, so you never have to worry about checking the ingredients when you shop. Juice Beauty, RMS Beauty, and Tata Harper Skin Care are brands you can always count on.
3. Use an app. If you are unsure about certain products, download the GoodGuide app. Simply scan the barcode of your product and the app will rate how safe the product is and flag any harmful ingredients.
