The 5 Clean Beauty Products You Need To Try This Summer
Self-care looks different for everyone based on their needs. Personally, I love to wear makeup, but it wasn't until recently that I learned about the harmful chemicals and ingredients that make up many of my favorite products. Similar to how many people have committed to vegan or vegetarian lifestyles for the effects that they have on personal health and the environment, many people are turning to clean beauty.
Clean beauty is the term used to refer to products that prioritize the health and safety of the consumer and the environment. These products are typically free from beauty ingredients such as talc, silica, oxybenzone and hydroquinone. Let's be real. We don't expect you to completely swap out your vanity for all clean beauty products, but maybe instead start off with a few simple swaps to help you get started. If you're looking for a few new clean beauty products to try, read more to find out our favorites.
The 5 Clean Beauty Products To Try This Summer
1. Tarte SEA Quench Lip Rescue Balm
If you suffer from chapped lips, then you know that they can sting and burn. The key to healing chapped lips is by adding moisture to keep them hydrated. While chapstick or vaseline can usually work, they aren't the most in-style. Tarte's SEA Quench Lip Rescue Balm works to soothe and hydrate lips while also providing a sheer colorful tint. Whether you are going to work or out with friends, this balm can provide that extra bit of moisture you need to prevent those dry and flaky chapped lips.
2. Aether Beauty Solstice Eyeshadow Palette
There's nothing worse than trying to put on eyeshadow that simply won't blend. Blending is essential to achieving the perfect eye look, but if the shadow is too dry and chalky that simply won't happen. Aether Beauty's Solstice Eyeshadow Palette is made with organic coconut and prickly pear oil that work to create a smooth and radiant buttery texture that makes blending effortless. This palette is ideal for creating matte and duo chrome looks make your eyes glow.
3. MILK Makeup Kush High Volume Mascara
No eyeshadow look is complete without mascara. If you're like me, you probably don't like heavy and clumpy mascara. Not only does it weigh down on your eyelashes, but it doesn't look natural. MILK Makeup's Kush High Volume Mascara is made from hemp-derived cannabis seed oil which works to condition lashes and set the foundation for a high-pigmented finish.
4. COVER FX Natural Finish Foundation
If you are looking for one new clean beauty product to add to your makeup routine, foundation is definitely the first place to look. Foundation covers a large majority of your skin making it more important to make sure what you're putting on your body is safe and healthy. COVER FX's Natural Finish Foundation is a water based product that provides up to 12 hours of coverage making it perfect for summer. This product also contains Vitamin C, E and F which help to hydrate skin making it ideal for normal and dry skin types.
5. RMS Beauty Living Luminizer
Highlighter is an essential part of any makeup routine because it provides a shiny and bright finish that accentuates face. While I love glitter highlights, if you're looking for something more subtle, RMS Beauty's Living Luminizer is great for creating a natural and luminous finish. Made with coconut oil, this product works to soften and soothe the skin making it great for the summer.
