Would you sacrifice your health for the sake of beauty? Thanks to the rise in safer ingredient standards, you don’t have to. Today is National Clean Beauty Day and the perfect day to learn what it means, and how you can make the switch to “cleaner” products.
If you follow beauty brands on social media, chances are good you’ve heard the term “clean beauty” at least once. But what exactly does it mean? Clean beauty products are made without ingredients shown to harm human health.
Make the switch from “dirty” to “clean.”
Clean beauty is about awareness. It means making a conscious effort to use ingredients that are deemed safe for public consumption. With a lack of regulation in the United States, it’s up to you – the consumer – to be well versed in what you’re layering on your skin or applying to your hair.
Did you know formaldehyde, used in cosmetics as a preservative, is a known carcinogen, and is often found in creams and haircare treatments? Formaldehyde can also trigger allergies and weaken the immune system. Instead of sabotaging your health for frizz-free locks, consider a healthier hair care regimen to tame your mane. MONAT STUDIO ONE™ Frizz-Fix Smoothing Hair Primer is a great pre-styling treatment that helps control frizz, and defends against humidity, for long-lasting definition, shine, and smoothness.
When it comes to skincare, not all cleansers are created equal. MONAT Be Gentle™ Creamy Cleanser, Be Balanced™ Foamy Cleanser, and BE PURIFIED™ Clarifying Cleanser are designed to clean and hydrate skin without toxic ingredients. They are made with the finest naturally based ingredients for a renewed, healthy-looking, youthful complexion. If you’re looking for a safer alternative to retinol, Botanic Bakuchiol Vegan Retinol Alternative Lotion contains plant-derived ingredients that have been clinically proven to prevent fine lines, wrinkles and age spots, and is safe for daily use.
If you’re keen on going clean, switching to a safer sunscreen is also a good idea—especially one rich in mineral-based zinc oxide. Reach for Sun Veil™ Daily Mineral Protection SPF 30. The vegan formula offers serious daily physical sun protection and nourishment. Zinc oxide gives you broad spectrum protection from UVB and UVA rays, meaning your skin is getting the best sun protection possible.
