5 Swaps to make when transitioning to Clean + Conscious Beauty products
Posted by Laura Szabo on
Say good-bye to pore-clogging, skin-irritating formulas, & "breaks" from your tradition foundation. Many conventional or tradition foundation formulas have a negative affect on your overall skin health, which can lead to premature aging, acne & unwanted breakouts, & irritation. Some commonly used toxic, harsh ingredients found in conventional foundations are Talc, synthetic fragrances, Parabens, synthetic additives & plastic-derived preservatives like phenoxyethanol. These ingredients can trap bacteria & sebum under your skin, causing breakouts. Plus, since you go most of the day wearing them & they cover you whole face, foundation is a perfect place to start when swapping to cleaner products. It's 2021, so there's definitely no compromising on quality or performance with all of the clean/green options on the market. When looking for a high quality, clean foundation it will actually have nourishing benefits for your skin, be long-lasting, have the coverage you desire, & a tiny bit should go a long way! Some of our favorites are the GRESSA Minimalist Corrective Serum Foundation & TMF Cosmetics Vegan Skin Perfector Foundation, TMF Dream Conceal Full coverage Foundation & Concealer.
Swapping to a 'clean deodorant can be more of a challenge-mostly because everyone's body reacts differently to different deo's / ingredients, but also because if you don't detox your pits before switching, you're likely to have sensitivity or even develop a rash. BUT, there is a way around this! The best thing to do when switching to clean-deo, is to detox your underarms with a clay mask for about 2 weeks. We prefer this kit here! Nowadays, most people know that mainstream or conventional deodorants are not made with safe ingredients & have been linked to some concerning diseases such as Breast Cancer & even Alzheimer's. If we're putting something on & around our breast area DAILY, don't you think it's better safe than sorry to apply a deodorant that is made with much more safe, clean ingredients? Studies have found conventional deodorants contain multiple endocrine disruptors, heavy metals, & synthetic fragrances- which ALL work against our bodies natural (Lymphatic) system to prevent sweating by blocking pores. Guess what...it's NORMAL & actually HEALTHYt to sweat! Plus. that's not the cause of body odor! Body odor happens when it’s mixed with the bacteria on your skin that things get stinky. Clean, or 'alternative' deodorants work together with your body, so they won’t stop you from sweating, BUT will stop odor. A few favorites here, are the Uni-sex Deodorants & Detox Kit from Half Hippy Life!
