Clean Up Your Skincare Routine

Clean Up Your Skincare Routine

February 02, 2019

A little spring cleaning never hurt anybody. As we’re looking forward to spring, it’s a great time to think about minimizing our lives in lots of different ways. Our skin is the largest organ, and what you put on it matters. The skin absorbs a lot of what we put on it and can enter the bloodstream. This can be an awesome thing or a bad thing, depending on the ingredients of the products we use. It is unknown exactly how much of what goes on our skin enters the bloodstream, but it’s always better to err on the side of caution. Here are a few simple tips to clean up your skincare routine. 

 

Choose Organic Ingredients

Take a look at the ingredients list on your skincare products. Does the list go on and on and on? Are there a ton of weird ingredients you can’t pronounce? You might want to steer clear of it. It’s not always the case that the product is unsafe, but it’s best to choose something with simple, organic ingredients instead.

 

Pare Down Your Products

Who has the time for a 15-step skincare routine? A few high-performing, multitasking products will serve you way better than a bunch of random products. Minimizing your products will not only save you money, but will help declutter your bathroom, and reduce plastic bottle waste. 

 

Try to DIY

This might be a surprise, but you can actually make products that work just as well (or better) than conventional products. With just a few simple ingredients, you can whip up a whole arsenal of bath and body products that are customized to you! Shea butter and olive oil make a great moisturizer, salt and sugar work as a scrub, and raw honey makes a luscious face mask, just to name a few. Check out some of our favorite DIY recipes here.
