When deciding to have a healthy life one of the first steps to take is eating clean. After that, you start to realize that not only food can change your health, but also everything we put in our bodies, through mouth but also on our skin!
Skin is our body's largest and fastest-growing organ. It protects you but also and since it is porous, it absorbs whatever you put on it. That means, good thing or bad things, like toxins. Being aware of that, the second step to have a healthier life is to choose good cosmetics. Specially brands who care about choosing clean ingredients and respecting the environment.
I know this is a tough task, because there are many options of shampoos, creams, lotions available and suddenly when you face this new lifestyle, it is hard to find out the good brands and their products, specially because most of them are small business comparing to big companies, making them hard to find.
Nowadays, I like to make some of my cosmetics but also, I love researching about new products and beauty brands (especially local ones) and I understand how hard it is to read the ingredients and check if the brand is reliable. That’s the reason I decided to write this post. Here I selected some of my favorite cosmetic clean products and some tips on how to identify the good ones.
2. Besides that, read all the ingredients on the label, check for if they are organic and if they have other important labels like cruelty free, vegan...
3. Test them! The product ingredients list and labels could be perfect, but if it doesn’t work for you, don’t use it!
