If you’re a fan of the latest lipstick, the newest face mask, or the best beauty products out there, you’ve surely heard of clean beauty. And if you haven’t, clean beauty means products without harsh chemicals—for the environment, and for your skin and body. The movement for more and more products to be clean has exploded, and we’re showing you some of the latest products to hit to the market. Add them to your bridal beauty routine, or try them out with friends. Some will help you relax, and others, help to highlight your already beautiful self.
CLEAN BEAUTY OVERNIGHT
The Cloud 9 Silk Pillowcase from Moonlit Skincare is magical because it works while you’re sleeping. It helps both skin and hair, by minimizing wrinkles and alleviating hair breakage. It even claims to extend your blowout for 2 additional days! The 100% silk pillowcase is great for acne-prone skin, and doesn’t absorb face creams you apply at night the way cotton pillowcases can.
CLEAN BEAUTY IN THE BATH
The Sugar, Salt & Clay Bar from Desily & Mitchell cleans, smooths, softens, hydrates, heals, and nourishes skin. One of the great things about it is the ingredients list, all of which you can actually read, pronounce and understand, because it ONLY has organic raw sugar, Dead Sea Salt, Calcium Bentonite Clay, organic coco butter, organic Shea butter, organic beeswax, black and mahogany rice, and essential oils.
CLEAN BEAUTY IN THE SHOWER
These shampoo and conditioner bars from Upfront Cosmetics look cool, and these bars are free from sulphates, parabens and synthetic fragrances. Each bar replaces 2-3 bottles of liquid shampoo or conditioner, and are pH-balanced, safe for all hair types and colors, and 100% vegan.
CLEAN BEAUTY MOISTURIZER
This Hydrating Cream, from Ona New York is both moisturizing and calming. (Who doesn’t need both of those lately?) Good for both day and night, this cream leaves skin radiant and youthful-looking. It has some ingredients you’ve probably heard of like Hyaluronic Acid and Shea Butter but also has some you’re probably not familiar with like ABC Complex which is a mixture of natural ingredients including acai berry, aloe vera, and birch tree juice extract.
CLEAN BEAUTY MAKE UP
There are quite a few brands getting in on the clean beauty movement, and Blinking Owl Acres has cleansers and oils, as well as makeup. Their Featherlight Makeup (Foundation and Veil) is their version of mineral makeup, which includes powdered silk and loads of anti-inflammatory zinc oxide. “We believe that aesthetics and therapeutics should go hand in hand and that makeup does not come after skincare, but that makeup is the final step in your skincare routine,” says a representative from their company.
