I have always been pretty good about skincare, especially wearing sunscreen. My mama taught me from a young age to protect and take care of my skin, but I feel like this past year I have really amped up my skincare routine to a new level. I have never had problematic skin, but I definitely have sensitive skin with a lot of allergies, so I have tried to switch out all my products to be CLEAN. When I say clean, it means these products are formulated WITHOUT the following: Sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, formaldehydes, formaldehyde-releasing agents, phthalates, mineral oil, retinyl palmitate, oxybenzone, coal tar, hydroquinone, triclosan, triclocarban. All skincare, hair, and usually less than 1% of synthetic fragrances.
Being conscious of what you are putting on your skin is just as important as what you are eating! I am not saying these products or brands will work with everyone’s skin, but below are my favorites I have all the time. I have normal to oily skin, so I tend to lean towards oil free based products and those that are meant to for oily complexions. Each brand has products targeted for each type of skin.
Drunk Elephant, Tatcha, Sunday Riley and Caudalie are by far my favorites! Sephora also has a “CLEAN” category, so you know you are safe when you see the green checkmark next to products. Let me know your favorite clean beauty products or if you have tried any of the below!
