Switching to All Natural Skin Care Products

Now more than ever, people are concerned about what ingredients are in their everyday items. From food to skincare products, fears about harmful chemicals are at an all time high — and rightfully so. Considering we absorb up to 60% of what we put on our skin, making the switch to all-natural products is a no brainer. Swapping out your beloved skincare products can seem like a daunting task, but don’t be discouraged. Here are some tips to get you started!

 

It doesn’t have to happen all at once

When you think about all the products you have in your bathroom cabinet, it may seem like you’re too deep into the chemical skin care world to be pulled out. Don’t get overwhelmed! Start by transitioning your products slowly so the switch seems more manageable.

 

Start with the basics

It’s okay if you have an emotional attachment to your favorite moisturizers or shampoo. Once you’ve found a face cream that works for you, it can be hard to imagine giving it up — even if the alternative is better for you in the long run. Start with the basics like body wash or hand lotion! This will help ease the transition while you search for other all-natural products you love.

 

Do your research

Many companies claim to be clean or all-natural, but when you check the labels, they are filled with chemicals you can’t even pronounce. Look for red flags like ingredients containing parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and triclosan. These chemicals are commonly found in traditional beauty products, and they can accumulate in your body over time. Don’t trust everything you read about a brand, do your own research and determine if it meets your standards!

 

Any amount counts!

The average woman uses approximately 15 skin and beauty products every day. Swapping every one of those items is both time consuming and expensive. Even if you don’t completely dive into the all-natural world, replacing just some of your products with clean alternatives is better for you. Every product you switch means less chemicals in your body, so even swapping one product is a step in the right direction!
