(1) Check the ingredients of your skincare products

Before switching to a clean skincare routine, you should know what you are putting on your skin and absorbed into your body. EWG’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database and Think Dirty app are useful reference to provide the information on product ingredients. To be a wise consumer, you have to choose clean skincare products without toxic natural and/or synthetic ingredients.

(3) Pick environmental-friendly packaging

People who love “clean beauty” are more concerned about their health and the environment. Once you go “clean”, you should also shift your trust in brands with high product transparency. Pick the clean skincare products that are using sustainable packaging under environmental footprint calculation or a recycling program.

(4) Switch your skincare products one by one

We recommend you avoid switching everything as non-toxic skincare products at once. Since your skin takes time to adapt to the new products, try to switch your facial cleanser first. Instead of using a facial cleanser containing harsh ingredients, a clean facial cleanser can draw out the impurities, remove skin cells and excess oil without stripping away the skin moisture. Keep observing your skin condition from time to time. If the product irritates your skin, please stop using immediately. If the “clean” facial cleanser offers your skin a natural glow after a certain period, you can switch the remaining skincare products one by one then.
