Spring Clean Your Skin Care

Spring Clean Your Skin Care

When it’s time to stow away your winter sweaters, take the time to spring clean both your skincare and make up products, as well as, your skincare and beauty routine!

Adopting a clean and sustainable lifestyle doesn’t begin and end with reducing your waste or not accepting that straw. Taking a look at your skincare and make up products is a perfect way to jump start your clean lifestyle!

Here are 5 easy steps to “Spring Clean” your beauty products.

  1. Checking Labels: Are you sure the products you have been using are truly “clean”? Look out for products that contain the big No-No’s such as; fillers of any kind, gluten, soy, nuts, parabens, PEG's, petroleum, sulfates, glycols, silicone, synthetics or anything that has not originated from Mother Earth OR that has not been grown in an ethical manner.
  1. Check Expiration Dates: Make sure your products are not expired. This is especially important when checking anything containing SPF as the efficiency of the sunscreen will be impacted if the product is passed the expiration date. 
  1. What Have Your Products Been Exposed To: Maybe you left your favorite makeup in your car or on a windowsill in your house having exposed it to sun or heat. Any useful ingredient in your product will now be null and void.
  1. Clean Your Brushes: We all make the commitments to clean ourselves regularly, yet with our makeup and hair brushes we could probably do this more. Use an organic and earth friendly brush cleaner and let them air dry.
  1. Throw Out Any Conventional Products That You Are Holding Onto: As you progress in your journey towards clean and sustainable beauty and skincare, start replacing old, chemical filled products with more clean, ethical ones. Your skin and our planet will thank you.
