Detox Your Beauty Routine in 2018 | Safe Beauty Swaps

For many of us, the new year is a time to set new wishes and intentions. It's a time to reset, renew and refocus. It's also the time of year when we start hearing the word "detox". 

This doesn't always have to be about the latest juice cleanse or diet. In my opinion, "detox" means letting go of anything from your life that doesn't serve you. This can be internal or external - Negative relationships, fears that are holding you back, anxious thoughts, walking away from stress, foods that are causing you inflammation, clutter in your home, or products that are toxic to your health! 

Detox Your Beauty Routine in 2018 | Safe Beauty Swaps

This year, I encourage you to to detox your beauty routine!

Did you know that your skin is your largest organ? Women use an average of 12 products daily, each with potentially dozens of harmful ingredients. That's right...your favorite lipstick, makeup palette, moisturizer and scented deodorant may all be reeking havoc on your health! The good news? You have a choice in the products you use each day, and you can control your exposure to harmful ingredients by choosing safer beauty products.

Thankfully, Beautycounter and other safe beauty brands provide safer and non-toxic products that work just as well or better than the department store brands you may be using now!

How do you start swapping out your products for safer? You don't need to change everything all at once! Start swapping out your products slowly, as you're financially able to. An excellent tool to research the products you're currently using is the EWG (Environment Working Group) Healthy Living App. This will provide you with a rating for products from 1-10 indicating what ingredients are of concern and how they relate to cancer, health and allergies. I always look for a rating of 1-3. Can't find a product? You can also search individual ingredients to see their rating as well!

If you want to learn more about how I made the switch to safer beauty, read about my personal experience HERE. I was using some brands that I didn't think I would ever be able to part with, but the change was easier than I imagined, and it feels so rewarding knowing that I am using safe products that perform.
