I haven’t really mentioned it yet but I decided to do a four week clean beauty challenge. All non-toxic beauty; makeup, skincare, and hair products for four weeks. I started about a week ago and honestly I am loving it. I was already using about 70% clean products so it wasn’t a huge change but there were a few products I was really holding out on giving up. Honestly, my skin feels really good (here’s what I’ve been using), my makeup is quick and easy and I’ve been LOVING this new shampoo and conditioner. The world of clean beauty can be a bit confusing, there’s a lot of greenwashing with brands positioning themselves and their products as clean when in fact, they are not. Unfortunately there are almost no regulations in the beauty industry in the US which means there are tons of toxic chemicals in a majority of cosmetic and skincare brands sold. If you are unsure about the products you’re using, check out the ThinkDirty App, it’s VERY eye opening. If you’re looking to try clean products but are unsure of what’s actually clean, check out Follain and Credo Beauty.
My clean beauty natural makeup tutorial is below. All products in the video are listed as well. I will be doing another video on my clean beauty skincare routine so stay tuned for that (in the meantime you can see what I’m using right now here).
