In an age where we are constantly inundated with a myriad of products left and right, it is easy to get overwhelmed. Simultaneously, we as consumers are getting collectively smarter. As we become more concious about where our money is going, we are more selective with our purchases. One department that this is critcal for is beauty. These products are loaded with ingredients and chemicals we can’t even pronounce, so it pays to switch over to natural alternatives when possible. Not only are these products be better for your body and health, but they are also better for the planet. While I am not saying I am switching over to a completely natural beauty routine, I do want to but at the end of the day, it is all about balance. If you have been trying to implement a more sustainable routine, here’s the natural beauty products to start with.

The Ordinary has amassed a cult following. Not only are their products on the affordable side, but they are also incredibly effective. Most notably, the serums. Everything from the Niacinamide to the hyularonic acid is rated as vegan and clean. And if you have yet to try their award-winning peeling solution, consider this a product you ahve to add to your cart right now.
I recently discovered 100% Pure – a hub of all natural beauty products. Products that immediately caught my eye were the sheet masks. I always have a handful of these on me at all times. They are perfect to pop on when your skin needs an immediate hydration boost. Pro tip: I always bring a face mask with me on the airplane. This green tea mask is 95% organic aloe juice and 5% plant cellulose so you know exactly what you ingredients you are applying to your face.
Although Sephora does have a decent amount of natural beauty products, sometimes it pays to try an alternative. Enter Credo Beauty – a one-stop-shop for all things clean and vegan. Purchasing products from a company that is dedicated to more sustainable products makes shopping guilt-free effortless. It has allowed me to discover natural makeup brands like Gen See and Exa – both companie spride themselves on clean ingredients.
