Clean Skincare ROUNDUP

Beauty
Monday, February 22nd, 2021

Let’s talk CLEAN SKINCARE. The last few years I’ve been learning about non-toxic skincare and how to not only care for my skin but nourish it with clean ingredients. Unfortunately many products in the US are still made with chemicals labeled “unsafe” in other countries. While the FDA has banned only 11 cosmetic ingredients, OVER 1,300 ingredients are banned in the EU (WHAT)! Our skin is the largest organ on our body and absorbs everyyything we put on it, which is why it’s important to check and understand our labels!!

The main ingredients to stay away from (especially while pregnant)…
— Parabens
— Formaldehyde
— Phthalates
— Diethanolamine
— Triethanolamine
— Diazolidinyl Ureal
— Imidazolidinyl Urea
— Tefolin

The Think Dirty app has been a great resource! It’s a quick and easy guide to reference any skincare, beauty, and cleaning products to ensure everything I’m using is clean! Another helpful tool for referencing clean brands and products is EWG’s skin deep website. 

While I’m still on a journey of finding what works for me, I want to share a few clean and toxic free skincare I’ve been using lately, and I’d love hear what’s worked for you!

Face


Tata Harper
— I discovered this brand years ago and have been using it religiously. Staples for me are the exfoliating cleanser which I use daily, and the clarifying moisturizer – I have seriously dry skin so this is a MUST. I also use the resurfacing mask 1-2 times a week, or whenever I can get 20 minutes alone in the bathroom without my toddler =) MAJOR INSTANT GLOW.

Boscia
— The perfect weekly reset– this black charcoal face mask leaves my skin GLOWING!!!
— When I need to get a really clean face I use the purifying cleansing gel and always follow it with the green tea moisturizer – super hydrating and non-greasy

Drunk Elephant
— The BEST everyday cleanser – removes makeup while hydrating.
C-Firma is my favorite vitamin C serum, it’s not drying or irritating and is surprisingly lightweight.

Kiehl’s
— The Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate is one of my nightly routine staples!

Body


Necessaire – I love all Necessaire products. They are so GENTLE and are designed to care for your body as you would your face.
— My favorites are the body serum and the body lotion. There are a few staple fragrances but I love the bergamot the most! 
— The body wash is another staple for me. Bath time with Navy is my favorite time of the day and I love that I know it’s safe on her and I both! 
 
Kiehl’s – My skin is dry no matter HOW much water I drink and both the milk and honey whipped body butter and the nourishing body oil are great for restoring and locking in moisture!
 
 

Belly


SOOOOO. I’ll try to be brief here but in all honestly I could write 20 pages on this…

In my first pregnancy I never found a belly or scar cream I loved and found effective even though I tried many. While this isn’t something I’ve officially announced, for over a year now I’ve been working on developing MY OWN stretch and scar formulas. I’ve been able to use the stretch cream my entire pregnancy with baby #2 and can testify to the results myself. 

EVER SINGLE INGREDIENT is clean, toxin free, the highest standards possible matters to me. These products have become my greatest passion (and third baby) and I’m so excited to share it with you!! More details coming THIS SUMMER.
