Top beauty tips for someone switching to Clean Beauty in UAE
- Get explicit knowledge about all the ingredients.
While switching to clean beauty, the first step to understanding if a product is clean is the labels. Labels such as paraben-free, sulfate-free, no silicones, no plastic beads are key whilst understanding what can be harmful. You can also start looking for words like vegan, cruelty free and eco-friendly.
- Connect with a clean beauty brand.
Some beauty brands are genuine, and providing clean beauty is their whole mission. If you start following them, you can understand a little more as to why they use certain ingredients in their products, as opposed to other harmful ingredients. First, start slowly - try using one product and see how you feel, you will notice the difference in your skin and it will make you want to try more over time.
- Make the basic swaps first.
Switch with products that are more toxic. For example, replace moisturizer with our well-known product Bare Multistick, a product that is useful for everyone, including men, women, even pregnant ladies can use because it has no toxic- elements. One thing to remember is that your skin absorbs 60% of what you put in accordingly. Make your choice wisely.
- Simplify your products
Simplify with your multipurpose beauty products. Try our bare multistick, a two-in-one formula that is safe to use on your lips and face. Multipurpose products are easy to carry and travel friendly, and it fits into your bag with minimum weight.
You might have understood that clean beauty is the new dawn for the makeup industry, from moisturizers to contour sticks. However, there has been a slow increase in awareness with customers. The beauty industry has a long way to go to make people aware of what they are using on their skin but there's always a start.
