How To Detox Your Beauty Regimen

The skin is the largest organ in the body and the substances we put on our skin make their way into our system. Think about how a nicotine patch works; it is simply a patch on the skin but it’s contents get absorbed into the bloodstream. In our modern environments, we are exposed to some toxins which we can’t do anything about; things like air pollution. Fortunately, there are some things we can control like what beauty products we use.

Natural Options for Cleaning & Cleansing
A flannel with warm water and a natural soap or coconut oil is a relaxing and gentle way to remove makeup and wash your face.

Natural Options for Moisturising & Fragrance
Natural Oils; Coconut Oil, Olive Oil mixed with a few drops of your favourite essential oil; I love grapefruit, lavender and vetiver. 

Natural/Low Additive Brands
Weleda
Lavera
Pacifica
Korres
Jason

Ingredients to avoid where possible:
Parabens
Phytates – Sometimes called dibutyl phthalate in nail products. Particularly to be avoided in pregnancy
Fragrance – A loose term with no bound legal description meaning it can be hard to know what has been used to create it in the product.
Heavy Metals – Mostly found in hair dyes. Opt for organic or natural hair dyes
Words ending with ‘-thiazolinone’ – a preservative which is an irritant to skin and potentially neurotoxic
