Clean beauty is having a hot moment right now, and by all means, it is here to stay for long. The term is quite self-explanatory. Clean beauty means using skincare products made without any harmful ingredients or considered potentially harmful to human health. Have you ever taken a moment to think about how you may be exposing your skin to harsh beauty ingredients daily? Starting from cleansers and creams in the morning to makeup removers and moisturisers at night, these beauty products sit on the skin all day long. The harm done is deeper than you’d imagine.
To combat this concern, you should be equipped with some solid clean beauty tips, which we’ll reveal in a moment. So, jump on the clean beauty bandwagon and try these effective clean beauty tips for healthy, glowing skin.
01. Begin your morning right
Some say a morning well begun sets the tone for the rest of the day. It can’t be any truer for your morning clean beauty routine, too. Wash your face with a cleanser that has no soap, no parabens, no alcohol or any other baddies. The Simple Kind To Skin Refreshing Facial Wash is our go-to clean beauty cleanser. It contains triple purified water and Vitamin B and E that cleanse your skin of impurities, hydrate and give it a natural glow.
02. Ice rolling
A great way to get rid of puffiness and boost oxygen supply to the face is by using ice cubes. Yes, you read that right. Ice cubes don’t cost a rupee and are a natural way to give your skin a healthy glow. They minimise the appearance of large pores and improves blood circulation to the face, making you glow. Simply wrap some ice cubes in a thin cloth and hold them against your face. Make sure to not hold it in one area for longer than 30 seconds. You can also go the celeb way and dunk your face in a bowl of ice water.
03. Use an alcohol-free toner and moisturiser
After you’ve washed your face, it’s important to use a toner to tighten the pores and moisturise to keep your skin hydrated (read: healthy and glowing). We suggest getting your hands on the Simple Kind To Skin Soothing Facial Toner. It has no alcohol and no parabens; instead, it’s packed with quality ingredients like chamomile, pro-vitamin B5, witch hazel and allantoin that soothe the skin and restore the skin’s pH balance.
As for a clean beauty moisturiser, the Simple Kind To Skin Replenishing Rich Moisturiser should be your go-to. It comes enriched with pro-vitamin B5 for hydration, bisabolol for reducing marks and blemishes, glycerin for nourishment and allantoin for smooth skin texture. Plus, it's non-comedogenic and dermatologically tested, which means it won’t clog the pores and is suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive skin.
