How to Start a Clean Beauty Routine

We usually govern our eating habits. We don’t eat food from anywhere and think about what we put inside our bodies.

So why should putting something on your body be any different? Our skin is a highly sensitive organ.

Everyone has a beauty regime, whether early morning or nighttime. But the toxicity of the makeup products being sold has reached a low point.

Thanks to the modern revolution, we now have toxic-free products to cater to our needs. Not a long time ago, Victoria Beckham surprised the world with her new moisturizer, which has her own blood in it. It doesn’t get any cleaner than this.

So, what is clean beauty?

Clean beauty refers to using non-toxic, safe organic products that don’t have any harmful chemicals which can cause anything from plain-old skin irritation to cancer. The ingredients are displayed transparently.

How to get started?

  • Declutter

Before you go out and start buying clean, non-toxic products, get rid of the highly toxic ones from your cabinet. Toss the products that are expired and that you never use (I am sure there will be a lot!). Out with the old, in with the new.

  • Ingredients to avoid

Before buying any product, you should read the back carefully and examine the ingredients. So, the next time you pick up a cosmetic product, be on the lookout for these ingredients:

  • Parabens
  • Sulfates
  • Aluminum compounds
  • Petroleum
  • Hydroquinone
  • Talc
  • Formaldehyde
  • Triclosan
  • Synthetic colors
  • Silica
  • Oxybenzone


Also, avoid products that have “fragrance” in them. A fragrance can have up to 4,000 unlisted chemicals and manufacturers are not required to list them as well.

  • Know your brands

So, you evaluated the cleanliness of your products. Now what? Experts from the Beautyholic Blog recommend researching about the new organic brands in the market. Read every label carefully before purchasing any product.
