Treat Your Beauty Inside and Out with Clean Cosmetics

Let’s be honest, we all want to age like a fine wine – even those of us who aren’t exactly the narcissistic type of people. The good news is it’s possible even for individuals who haven’t been blessed with the perfect genes; the bad news is it takes some effort as well as knowledge when choosing the ideal bits and pieces of skincare.

My advice is to keep your radiant and healthy skin in mind as you’re on the quest for youthful and wrinkle-free results. And, of course, it’s recommended you take a good look at your current collection of beauty products and sweep it clean, replacing all the toxin-packed items with clean cosmetics free from all the nasties.

Clean beauty has turned into quite the buzzword recently, though there’s still some cloud of confusion as to what it truly refers to and encompasses. Lucky for you, this is exactly what this blog post is about – throwing light on clean beauty.

What Is the Definition of Clean Beauty?

The concise answer would be the kind of cosmetics that are great for people as much as the environment. In a broader sense, it’s an umbrella term encompassing ethical, sustainable, organic, vegan and cruelty-free products. Respective of this, you might also hear it associated with conscious beauty.

This stems from the fact such products are created with natural plant-based ingredients at the basis, carefully sourced from renewable sustainable sources, and not tested on animals. As such, they don’t cause skin irritation, redness, sensitivities, serious health and well-being issues, and they don’t lead to environmental pollution as the traditional cosmetic industry with its serious toxic waste.

What Are the Benefits of Clean Beauty?

If you care about your beauty inside and out, in addition to making ground-breaking changes with your nutrition by getting rid of processed foods and substituting them with all-things organic, you ought to invest in clean beauty that’s nurturing your skin. As soon as you implement them in your day to day pampering, you’d get to benefit the following:

  • Come across optimal ingredients that nature offers.

  • Get a healthy complexion and plump skin worthy of envy.

  • Cut down the risk of toxicity.

  • Cut down the risk of irritation, redness, sensitivity, and issues like rosacea, and dermatitis.

  • Cut down the risk of cancer.

  • Cut down the risk of hormonal imbalances and endocrine issues.

  • In other words, acquiring clean cosmetics from trusted retailers and their carefully curated selections means opening up the path to a clean lifestyle and an even cleaner environment. What you invest in such products pays off in your life in more ways than one.

How Do I Start a Clean Beauty Routine?

The typical woman enamoured with cosmetics has a wide assortment of beauty essentials that she uses on a daily basis. What this means is every day she scrubs and rubs various types of chemicals on the skin, oblivious they’re harmful for her health. If this sounds like you, and you’re afraid of some side-effects along the way, it’s high time you did some beauty routine changes with the following steps.

1. Know Your Foes 

Not knowing where to begin when embarking on the green beauty regimen, it’s advisable to first familiarize yourself with the nasty ingredients present in most traditional cosmetics that most people sadly have in their homes. The dirty thirty would give you a clear idea of what you should avoid, and why that is.

2. Read the Label

The next step would be to do your homework on brands and their products, and if something catches your eye, be sure to look into the ingredients before purchasing. The important thing here is to get in the habit of reading labels. There are sites, like the non-governmental EWG (Environmental Working Group) with its skin deep database, where you could also check the products you’re interested in to see if they’re safe.

3. Take It Slow 

Once you find brands and items of clean cosmetics you want to try out, are sure they’re safe, and don’t contain any of the dirty thirty nasties, it’s advisable to use a slow pace. If you’ve been using beauty care items for long, your skin has become accustomed to the chemicals, so it might take time to adjust to the organic alternatives.

This is why it’s essential to gradually declutter and implement the new products, starting from the items you use to cover most of your skin’s areas, in the likes of body lotions and body washes. You can later move on to moisturisers, toners, serums, eye creams, sunscreens, masks, soaps, makeup, nail polish, shampoos, conditioners, deodorants, fragrances, as well as toothpaste. By doing so, you wouldn’t only be doing your skin and beauty a favor, but also your wallet. The future truly looks bright with these products!

4. Make Sure It's Good for You 

Just because something’s clean, organic, green, vegan, or whatever you might call it, doesn’t mean it won’t bring about any side-effects either. Sometimes, a person may not even be aware he or she is allergic to a certain natural ingredient until they start using certain products. With this thought in mind, it’s necessary to always do a patch test first when you decide to introduce a new item of clean cosmetics to your collection.

5. Mind Your Skin Type 

And, of course, the most important step, always buy clean skincare and body care products that are suitable for your skin type. Once you’ve compiled your collection of all-things clean, you ought to build a solid routine and practice it religiously every morning and every night. This would guarantee you’d get the results you’re after and make a change in your life and the planet’s.

6. Stick to the Basics 

To follow through with it, even when you barely have the time, it’s advisable to make it as simple as you can with the most crucial products. Cleanse, nurture with vitamin C serum and protect with an SPF moisturizer in the morning, and cleanse again, treat with special products (e.g. acne or age related), and round it up by moisturizing again before beauty sleep.
