Let’s be honest, changing your routine can be difficult – from fitness to dieting to swapping out for clean beauty products, it’s easy to shut down and revert to your original routine due to the overwhelming amount of research required. But it doesn’t have to be so daunting! Our team complied the best tips on how to successfully switch to clean beauty products this year.
- Do your research. Did you know the European Union has banned more than 1,300 chemicals from use in beauty products, while the United States has banned only 11? Find out for yourself why it’s important for the environment and for your health to go clean. EWG’s SkinDeep database is a good place to start to see where the products you are currently using rank, then research your selected swaps to see where those rank as well.
- Learn how to read ingredient labels, and which ingredients to watch out for. We know reading ingredient labels in the beauty industry can feel like reading a different language. And just because a product is being advertised as clean or natural doesn’t mean it necessarily is. Learn more about how to read beauty & skin care product labels like an expert in our blog.
- Swap out one product at a time. This will make it more likely you will stick to the change and avoid being overwhelmed researching clean swaps. Plus, once you see the benefit of switching one product, it will make it easier for you to move on to another. Making small, intentional changes often results in the best outcome long-term.
- Swap out products as you run out of them. This way your budget won’t take a hit all at once, and you won’t waste the products you’re currently using. Slowly but surely, your beauty collection will be cleaner, healthier and more environmentally friendly.
Ready to get started but unsure which product to start with? Deodorant is often the best place to start because you’re using it daily on a critical part of your body: your underarms where lymph nodes and sweat glands are concentrated. It’s important to note that not all natural deodorants are created equal. Use EWG’s SkinDeep App to help assess the safety of the ingredients in your deodorant.
