How To Feel Fresh In Your Own Skin - The Natural Way

How To Feel Fresh In Your Own Skin - The Natural Way

Let's talk clean! Whether it's makeup or skincare using clean beauty brands is vital to keep your skin feeling clean and looking glass-like. That porcelain look is on its way!


Here's more on my favorite clean beauty products and how to use them.


Why Clean Beauty?

It is vital that we keep our skin feeling healthy and supple, and with so many skincare and beauty brands overwhelming the industry, it can be hard for us non-estheticians to find the perfect products for our needs! The first step towards narrowing down potential product duds is by focusing on purchasing from clean brands. This means that these brands focus on producing products that are clean for both your body and the environment! This is maintained through ethically sourcing packaging that is recyclable or compostable and avoids harmful chemicals like silicones, parabens, and formaldehydes. To make your life easy, I have curated a skincare regimen and an everyday makeup routine that utilizes clean products for the sake of both your health and Mother Earth's as well!

Clean Skincare Brand - Natrium

This brand is used by some of Hollywood's most famous makeup artists, like Selena Gomez's go-to: Hung Vanngo! In this video he uses one of my favorite products, Vitamin C Complex Serum on one of his clients to prep her skin accordingly for the following makeup application. Natrium skincare is one of my new favorite clean skincare brands not only for its clean ingredients but for its impact on the world. Natrium states, "At Naturium, we believe it’s our responsibility to give back where we can, not only to you but to the environment. That’s why we’ve partnered with One Tree Planted so we can plant more trees for a better world. Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and wellbeing and create jobs for social impact. With your help, a percentage of our proceeds will be donated to One Tree Planted." To help save the trees check out this link to donate now! Natrium aims to be environmentally sustainable by working with Plastic Bank stating, "Plastic Bank builds ethical recycling ecosystems in coastal communities and reprocesses the materials for reintroduction into the global manufacturing supply chain. Collectors receive a premium for the materials they collect which helps them provide basic family necessities such as groceries, cooking fuel, school tuition, and health insurance." Make your mark by choosing Natrium and planting trees to make our Earth more green! For more on how to use their products look no further, I have made the perfect regimen for your basic needs. For additional skincare concerns, you can utilize Natriums custom skincare online routine builder to address your specific needs!

Clean Beauty Brands That I Love!

Milk Makeup:

Milk Makeup is a beauty brand born out of downtown New York City. All of Milk Makeup's products are 100% vegan, cruelty, and paraben free. Milk Makeup is Leaping Bunny certified, meaning they don’t test on animals at any stage in their supply chain. Milk Makeup is also FDA approved and avoids using chemicals detrimental to our skin healths by adhering to Sephora's Clean Seal. You can refer to this link for more information regarding the ingredients blacklisted from Milk Makeup products. They also manufacture their packaging in an environmentally mindful manner by producing recyclable shipping materials and packaging. Milk Makeup has continued to pursue brand-wide environmental sustainability by launching a new product display system that uses 63% less plastic on average than their previous display and printing their boxes with petroleum-free plant-based ink made in the USA to boost our economy. The inner bag is also made in the USA from 100% post-consumer waste, and both are 100% recyclable once the adhesive strip on the box is removed. With lots of fun chrome highlighters (that I'm obsessed with by the way) for all of your raving events and kush mascara for your everyday needs, Milk Makeup is an ever reliable and versatile brand that I always carry in my purse!

Kosas is a clean beauty brand that encourages its users to express themselves through makeup and feel comfortable in their own skin! Kosas offers quality clean products without sacrificing performance through their laboratory tested formulas. They avoid using products outlined within EU, Sephora and Credo clean standards to keep your skin happy and healthy! They run "clinical safety testing on all of our products and [...] formulate to support all of our sensitivities." Feeling good in your own skin was never easier! Kosas is amazing for people who are active and on the go as their products do not clog your pores as you're sweating.
