When I set out on my clean beauty journey I started just with one product, deodorant. It seemed like the easiest to switch and try out. After that, I just went one by one and found clean beauty swaps to try out in several categories. It can be overwhelming to try to switch everything at once and you also want to make sure the items work for you. I am going to share my favorites in several categories so if you are looking for clean beauty swaps this is a great resource to start with.
Clean Beauty Swaps To Try
Clean Beauty Skincare Swaps:
I personally think skincare is one of the most important swaps to make. This is the stuff on your face all day, all night. So it was REALLY important to me to make this specific switch. I actually went to the Follain store in Dallas and Tara Foley the founder helped me set up a completely new skincare routine.
Serum: I use a serum in the morning and a serum at night. Technically two at night although I consider one more of an oil. In the morning I use Ursa Major vitamin C serum. At night I use Naturopathica Vitamin C15 serum.
Moisturizer: I have used a lot of clean moisturizers but I have been pretty loyal to a few for the last couple of years. In the morning I either use the Josh Rosenbrook SPF moisturizer or the Supergoop moisturizer. In the evenings I always use the Ursa Major Golden Hour moisturizer.
Sunscreen: I am a Supergoop sunscreen girl. I have been using it for a few years. It’s such a great sunscreen. I use several of their products and find they protect the best, and don’t make my skin or body feel gross.
Face Wash: I ONLY use the Naturopathica face wash. I am sure there are so many great clean beauty swaps for a face wash but I have been using it for 2 years and I love it. I did a full Naturopathica review here.
Clean Beauty Makeup Swaps:
There are tons of great clean beauty swaps for makeup but I really wanted to focus on the ones I use most and swapped first.
Lip Balm: I wrote an entire blog post on my favorites but right now my number one favorite is the Bite Agave lip balm. I keep them everywhere: purse, bedside, bathroom, etc. It is insanely hydrating and smells so good!
Clean Beauty Body Swaps:
This is the thing I work on the most as I am still swapping a few things but these are the ones I feel like I have the best grasp on.
Deodorant: This was the very first clean beauty swap I did and I have tried dozens of clean deodorants. Right now I am using the Ursa Major Sublime Sage deodorant spray and also the Briogeo Be Well tea tree deodorant. I really love both. The Ursa Major is definitely better pre-workout!
Body Lotion: I love a good clean body lotion. I don’t love the idea of spending a ton but I really love the Necessaire body lotion. Its the best one I’ve used and I get the one with no scent. But their Eucalyptus body wash is also really great. It’s a splurge but worth it.
Don’t let switching to clean beauty overwhelm you. There are SO MANY articles, and professionals, and even stores out there that specialize in clean beauty. My biggest advice is just to start researching it. Try things out. Make one clean beauty swap at a time. I personally have seen a HUGE change in my skin once I switched over. It also makes me way more aware in everyday life of what kind of products I am exposing myself to.
