Be consistent in your quest for green beauty. This means that each product should be natural and contain no synthetic dyes, fragrances, preservatives, or detergents.
No matter how you mix and match your cleansers, toners, sunscreens, and anti-ageing serums stick to a routine. Cleanse your face every morning and evening, boost the effectiveness of your moisturizers by spraying or padding on some toner, and always put on a moisturizer with sunscreen when you leave home.
At night, cleanse your skin and dab a little lightweight oil or serum to nourish, not suffocate, your skin when it needs oxygen more than ever.
Not ready for a big green leap? Take one step at a time. One natural product won’t mean much of a difference, but it’s a nice start.
Switch from a foaming cleanser containing several sulfate-based cleanser detergents to a mild olive oil soap or African Black Soap.
Replace your alcohol-based toner with witch hazel or rose water and dot a few drops of jojoba oil instead of heavy night cream.
Just keep in mind that several natural products used consistently will produce noticeable results within a few weeks. One product is not a cure-all. Regular use of green beauty products will give you a natural healthy looking skin.
