We’ve been all there— that search for a skincare routine and a trustworthy skincare brand that we will love to use for a long time! Self-care through skincare is the best physical manifestation of our love and care for our bodies. We all love to achieve a dewy, barely-there makeup kind of look, and we aim to achieve it through sustainable skincare.
But before we dig deeper, let us find out what is “Clean Beauty”.
Clean Beauty 101
What it is:
- The act of using products that are made with plant-based ingredients that are environmentally friendly.
- They are made without proven or suspected toxic ingredients, such as parabens, sulfates or mineral oils.
- The product is safe for use and not harmful to the skin nor the environment.
If you are thinking if clean beauty is also organic or natural, then the answer is that it is not always 100%. But certain beauty brands can also be considered as GREEN, where which they are referred to as GREEN BEAUTY. These are products that are plant-derived, vegan, cruelty-free, eco-friendly, and sustainably sourced.
How to Transition to Clean Beauty?
It may sound new to you, but switching to cleaner products is easier than you imagine.
Here are some tips that you can follow:
Start with products that you use daily on your face
As these products are intended to stay on your face for a long period of time of your day, it is reasonable to use a cleaner alternative for your day-to-day skincare products- such as makeup remover, lotion, eye care, moisturizer, mask, and sunscreen.
Find a good brand and stick with it
For starters, it is good to look for brands that meet the following requirements to ensure quality:
- Made from pure and simple plant-based ingredients
- Do not contain added artificial fragrances, harsh chemicals, parabens, or animal by-products
- Safe and gentle for all skin types and ideal for sensitive skin
Why Does It Pay Off to Adopt a Clean Beauty Routine?
Clean beauty offers several benefits from a long-term perspective.
Imagine filling your stomach with junk food such as burgers, fries, soda, preservative-filled foods, etc. Not only will you miss the benefits of having a balanced diet, but also you will reduce the healthy bacteria in your digestive tract.
The same thing happens on your skin when you continue using harmful chemicals with tons of preservatives, fragrances, and stabilizers. You are likely to damage your skin’s natural environment. To talk more about this, here are some benefits to consider:
It does not irritate your skin
Clean brands do not use added artificial fragrances, harsh chemicals, parabens, or animal by-products, so it is likely to be safe and gentle for all skin types and ideal for sensitive skin.
Reduced chance of skin damage
Some commonly avoided ingredients are methylisothiazolinone (MI), methylchloroisothiazolinone (MCI), vitamin A derivatives, fragrance, phenoxyethanol, petroleum distillates, and formaldehydes. These are known causes of contact dermatitis.
It is effective and healthy
Potentially harmful ingredients in products not only affect the skin, but it is also absorbed by the body. Using clean brands is not only beneficial for the skin, but your entire body as well.
