Switching over to a non-toxic skin care routine can be one of the most rewarding things you do for yourself for many different reasons.
Firstly, you’ll be saying adios to chemically-laden products that may be putting your health at risk.
You’ll be doing your part for the environment and all furry critters when you opt for natural, cruelty-free skincare and last, but not least, you’ll be treating your skin to real ingredients that will provide visible results in the long-term, rather than just a quick, temporary fix.
We understand that it may seem tricky to ditch your tried and tested products you’ve used for years, but if you follow our tips, ditching the bad stuff for good will be a breeze!
Thanks to the internet, you don’t have to buy a product blindly. By having a quick google search, you can find loads of reviews on various natural brands before making a final decision to buy.
Of course, there are always going to be different opinions, what works for one person may not work for another, but you’ll get an overall idea of whether or not the product is for you before even spending a dime.
Always do your research before making the switch and don’t be afraid to ask the company questions if you aren’t sure.
Before maxing out your credit card on a 10 different products from one line, you may want to try just one product from a specific brand at a time to see how your skin reacts and in the case of makeup, whether or not it’s going to do the job.
We know makeup can be tricky because most of us have our favourite products and can’t imagine finding anything better. The good news is that there are some excellent options these days! We only carry brands that we have tried, tested and love ourselves so be sure to have a scroll through
It’s important to understand that when using new products, your skin goes through an adjustment period where it may get worse before it gets better.
Think of it as a detox, but for your skin. When switching to natural products, your skin will start to flush toxins out from the chemical products you may have been using and this can cause breakouts and sensitivity, so just be aware of this and try and be patient.
After about a week or two, your skin should start to clear up and you’ll start to see positive results from your new products. Also be sure to use products that are suited to your skin type as many people use the wrong products and then blame them for causing issues.
Here’s a great guide to help you figure out your skin type.
Making the switch to a natural skin care routine doesn’t have to be hard.
