Why not kick off the New Year with a refreshed beauty routine that is healthy, non-toxic, and good-for-you? Removing toxic products from your beauty routine can seem a bit daunting at first, but our goal at W3LL PEOPLE is to make clean, healthy beauty simple and hassle-free. We recommend starting slow, and replacing the items that are used most frequently, are the most toxic, or come into the most contact with your skin or sensitive areas. When asked which products to swap out first, these are the four products our experts recommend replacing ASAP:
- Foundation – Our skin is our largest organ, and it can quickly absorb what we put on it. One of the first products you should swap for a clean alternative is your foundation, because it typically covers the most surface area, making you most prone to toxic absorption. W3LL PEOPLE offers you four options in foundation products so that you can select the product that provides the coverage and finish you desire (left to right): Altruist Foundation Powder, Bio Base Baked Foundation Powder, Bio Tint Multi-Action Moisturizer, and Narcissist Foundation Stick. For an in-depth look at each foundation’s benefits check out our Foundation Guide. For help selecting the perfect shade, visit our Foundation Selector.
- Mascara – Switching to a nontoxic mascara should be a high priority for all of us. Not only do most conventional mascaras contain coal tar, but they can also contain other nasty ingredients that are drying and damaging to your natural lashes. Our Expressionist Mascara not only comes with a clean ingredient deck, but it also comes with the added benefit of plant-based ingredients like castor seed oil and sunflower seed oil, which help promote lash health and growth. We’ve combined an incredible formula with a state-of-the-art rubble-bristled wand that helps lengthen, define and curl your lashes. You won’t miss your toxic mascara for a second, we promise!
- Lip Products – We don’t have to remind you of how much lipstick the average woman consumes in her lifetime, do we? Okay, we’re going to: it’s upwards of 4 pounds or more! Obviously, the products that go near our mouth should be nontoxic and as close to consumable as possible. W3LL PEOPLE offers four versatile lip products that provide you with varying levels of coverage, powerful pigments, and botanical formulas that outperform their toxic competition (left to right): Bio Extreme Lipgloss (Nude Rose), Optimist Lipstick (Om Yeah), Nudist Lip Butter (Cherry), Nudist Multi-Use Stick (Nude Rose).
If you’re feeling “stuck” on where to start with your green beauty transition, we hope that this post will give you a gentle nudge in the right direction. We know that you will be blown away not only by the performance of our nontoxic products but also by the way they nourish and improve your skin, that you’ll be happy to swap out each product in your makeup bag!
