You probably don't need a long rant to explain why you need to be mindful of the ingredients in your beauty products. Whether it's intensively researching every single ingredient and getting public opinion before shopping, or whether it's just caring about what goes into your products by yourself, consumers are more aware than ever before of the things that go in their skincare products. From parabens to silicone, these dirty beauty words are enough to send anyone heading to the hills –– which is why we're turning to clean beauty.
Essentially, clean beauty products are made without ingredients shown or suspected to harm human health. It’s kinder to the skin and the environment as well. No, clean beauty isn't just a buzzword. Yes, it's easier to achieve than you think. If you're just about ready to make the switch to clean beauty, we're here to point you in the right direction with the right products! Ahead, we're letting you in on how to achieve a no-baddie clean beauty skincare routine that's not wasteful, so your skin is at its best –– with no side effects.
Step #1: Cleanse your face using a mild face wash
Washing your face is the most basic, essential first step of any skincare routine, and the Simple Kind To Skin Refreshing Facial Wash is one of the best clean beauty options out there. A hypoallergenic face wash that works for all skin types –– yes, even sensitive skin — the face wash contains the hydrating powers of pro-vitamin B5 and E, making for a refreshing and nourishing experience. The face wash is also non-comedogenic, cruelty-free, and dermatologically tested. Clean beauty is really accessible!
Step #2: Tone using an alcohol-free toner
Listen, if you're someone who doesn't believe in using toners, let us change your mind. We're not talking about some alcohol-based astringent that sucks the moisture out of your skin. Nope, we're talking about the Simple Kind To Skin Soothing Facial Toner — a soothing, alcohol-free toner that’s enriched with the goodness of pro-vitamin B5 (for hydration), chamomile (for a boost of antioxidants), witch hazel (for anti-inflammation) and allantoin (for soothing the skin). Like that’s not enough to get you hooked, this toner is also hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and free of any animal-derived ingredients. Need we say more?
Step #3: Moisturise with skin-loving ingredients
A next natural step after toning –– moisturising all the way! It doesn't matter what your skin type is; moisturising is essential. And the Simple Kind To Skin Replenishing Rich Moisturiser is a baddie-free moisturiser that will take care of all your moisturising needs since it contains nourishing glycerin, blemish-reducing bisabolol, hydrating vitamin B5, and soothing allantoin. This hydrating moisturiser is perfect for anyone who wants to shift to a no-baddie skincare regimen without skipping a beat.
Step #4: Slather on a broad-spectrum sunscreen
Of course, we're going to recommend sunscreen; it’s probably the most vital step to a skincare routine there is! Use the Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF 50 after moisturising. This vegan, paraben-free broad-spectrum sunscreen contains all the goodness of Vitamins E and C, the antioxidant properties of green tea and grapeseed, and oleosome microspheres that provide enhance moisturisation.
Now that you know how easy it is to make the switch, do yourself –– and your skin –– a favour and switch to a no-baddie skincare routine already!
