HOW TO SWITCH TO CLEAN BEAUTY HOW TO SWITCH TO CLEAN BEAUTY

Already a clean-eating convert? Or simply want to introduce clean beauty to your regime for a healthier lifestyle? It can be daunting making the switch and understanding the ingredients (find the list of ingredients we avoid here), but going clean doesn’t have to be complicated. At SCOON.STORE, we believe that using clean beauty should be just as easy and fuss-free as browsing through your usual beauty aisles. Follow our guide here to make the switch.


Replace your items as they run out

Just because you’re making the switch doesn’t mean you have to do it overnight. The easiest way to slowly introduce clean beauty to your makeup bag and bathroom shelf is to replace your empties with clean alternatives and start with the simple things. Need a new deodorant for your gym kit? Why not try switching to an aluminium-free version and see how it works for you. Or replace your hand wash with something more skin-friendly.

Start with products for larger surface areas and multi-tasking products

Your skin absorbs up to 60% of what we put on it and chemicals applied topically on the skin can even enter the bloodstream, so it makes sense to start the switch with products for the largest surface area - your body. Find body lotions, creams, shampoo, body washes (you get the drill) that are free of not-so-nice ingredients, or even multi-tasking products such as a cheek and lip stain.

 

Be realistic

Lastly, be realistic and introduce clean beauty to your regime as it works for you. Just because you want to make this positive change, it doesn’t mean you have to do a complete overhaul at once. Introduce products slowly and have fun experimenting with new products. Happy shopping!
