Clean Beauty: 3 Items To Switch Over First



Happy Friday! Who's ready for another weekend!? I know I am! Last weekend I was in bed sick so this weekend I want to be out and about. I think I'm going to grab drinks with a friend and maybe Kyle and I will go to Carlsbad but not sure yet. I know I could definitely use some beach time!

Anyways, today's post is one that I've wanted to do for a while but honestly keep forgetting to actually put together so here we are actually putting it into action! Clean beauty is something I'm very passionate about but honestly it can be SO overwhelming. I actually wrote a blog post a little over a year ago talking fairly in depth about what clean beauty is and I linked articles with even more information, check that post out here! Since switching over your beauty products to more "clean" ones can be a little intimidating I thought I'd share three products I think you should switch over first. I'm hoping to make this a little mini series where every few weeks I can share a few more products to switch over so it feels more gradual!

1. Body lotion

Your skin is your biggest organ and it absorbs everything you put on it that's why clean beauty is so important. Who wants their skin absorbing toxic chemicals!? Since you put body lotion over the majority of your body it makes sense to switch that one first! I find clean (or as clean as I can) body lotion at Whole Foods most of the time but I also really like the Honest Company Lotion which you can find online, at Target (sometimes), and Whole Foods.

2. Foundation

Similar to body lotion, foundation covers a large portion of skin and sits directly on top of your pores so your skin is soaking in a lot of that foundation! I have found that it is relatively easy to find "clean" tinted moisturizers and BB creams (check out Sephora's clean beauty section online, it is so helpful!) but finding an actual foundation with good coverage is a challenge. Right now I'm using the one by Lawless and I have to say I love it so far!

3. Lipstick/Gloss

Okay I tried to find a statistic on how much lipstick/gloss we consume for you all but I couldn't find a legit enough one BUT we lick our lips (that grossed me out to write that lol) constantly throughout the day or maybe you bite your lip and when we're eating our food touches our lips. Basically I'm not sure the exact amount of lip product we consume but we do consume it regularly. So again, imagine digesting all those nasty chemicals in lip products. No good. I suggest as you run out of each lipstick, gloss, liquid lipstick replace it with a cleaner alternative. Click the Sephora link above to check out what they have on their site or I've heard great things about the Lawless liquid lipsticks!

Hope this was helpful!
XOXO, Maddy
