How to reduce toxins in your daily skincare routine



Have you ever thought of reading the details of your skincare product? Or felt confused understanding the ingredients mentioned on the packaging?

The beauty industry with all its glamour- has a brutal truth associated with it: cruelty and toxic chemicals!

Yes, you read that right, toxins like phthalates, sulphates to name a few, should be avoided, and one must make a safe transition to clean and toxin-free alternatives to keep skin, health, and the environment safe.

It’s not a secret anymore that clean beauty is being celebrated across the globe for its health benefits and eco-consciousness.

The rising awareness has moved the radar towards clean alternatives that are free of toxins and animal cruelty.

Here, we bring you a few tips to move forward towards a cleaner and greener tomorrow.

1. Look for suspicious-six ingredients

Flip your skincare product over and read thoroughly all the ingredients such as parfum (perfume or fragrance), parabens, sulphates, phthalates, propylene glycol, and toluene. If you spot them, stay clear of the product. These toxins won’t just harm your skin but the environment too. Choosing skincare products that are naturally scented or formulated using clean ingredients can be a wise choice.

2. Consume high fiber diet

A healthy, balanced, high-fiber diet contains essential vitamins that are important for clean, pollution-free skin and long-term overall health.

3. ​Multipurpose products are for the win

It’s simple and easy to keep up with. What’s better than a product that can do a job of two or maybe more? Multi-purpose skincare or beauty could be the best investment. For instance, a lip and cheek stain or natural lip balm that tames your chapped lips at once. This smart choice can keep two products from going to landfills.

4. Switch for good

Ditch the 10-step chemical-laden skincare routine and add some hero ingredients that are backed with nature’s science to pamper your skin and hair with the best. Essential oils, vitamins, minerals, and other natural ingredients are an ideal way to replace toxins from your skincare routine.

5. Drink lots of water

Drinking fluids is the easiest way to get a hydrated and radiant looking skin. Always try to drink at least 1.5-2 liters of water per day. Drinking a lot of fluids helps the kidneys to excrete unpleasant toxins.
