It used to be that those of us determined to switch to a natural beauty routine were faced with some sort of sacrifice – you couldn’t get the same quality or choice when it came to natural as was available with the regular, chemical-filled products. Fortunately, we’ve come a long way since those days. Now companies are recognizing that consumers want more natural, eco-friendly products – products that won’t do a number on our skin. This week, if you’re thinking of finally transitioning to a natural beauty routine, we’ve got some tips to help.
Tips for Transitioning to a Natural Beauty Routine
Start by replacing one thing. A surefire way to get caught up and give up quickly is to toss everything and replace it all with natural products. Not only will this cost your pocket book, it may just feel a little too over the top. Instead, incorporate natural products into your routine, one at a time rather than all at once.
Think about what you use most often – face wash, moisturizer, lip balm – and what you use it for – acne, wrinkles, dry skin. The answers to these questions will help you narrow down your search. For example, if you rely on your facial moisturizer, and want something to keep the wrinkles at bay, you might want to start there.
Get to know your ingredients. A great place to start when you’re transitioning to a natural beauty routine is with the ingredient list. Most of the time those ingredients will be things like water (yep, we know that one) and natural plant and fruit oils as these are the things that pack the most power. Do you recognize most of the ingredients on the list? Can you pronounce them on the first try? If so, you’re probably holding something on the natural end of the spectrum. Also, if something is certified organic, you’re in safe hands.
Look for options when shopping. Like to browse from the comfort of home? An online shop is very convenient. So too is the ability to shop at the grocery or health food store to grab your favourite product if you don’t want to wait.
There are many reasons why Canadians are opting for natural at the beauty counter, and no matter your reasoning, good luck! When transitioning to a natural beauty routine, it can take a bit of time, but the results will be well worth it. Your body will thank you.
