5 Tips for Switching to Green Beauty
Are you new to green beauty? Have you recently discovered the wonderful world of clean and organic skin care and makeup? That’s fantastic!
We'd like to welcome you to this new path and to be the first to say congrats! Here at Clementine Fields we love green beauty (as you can probably tell), and we’d be honoured to help you make the switch from conventional products to a clean and green new you.
Whether you discovered green beauty from a friend, an online review, or a lipstick in a beauty magazine, we’re super glad you did and excited you found us.
Switching all of your beauty products can be really exciting and also pretty overwhelming. So, to help you kick off your transition, here are five tips.
1. Collect and Reflect
Collect all of the products you use on a daily and weekly basis, and one by one, consider each one and think about what you like, and what you don’t.
During this time, also think about your beauty routine and any changes you want to make. For example, if you’ve been wearing the same eye makeup look for nearly a decade, you might decide to wear just mascara for a while. Or, perhaps you’ve been using a three-step cleansing program morning and night since your teens, but you're not sure it's working for you anymore. Now's a good time to try new products and a new approach.
As well, think about habits and thoughts you have that might not apply anymore. If you still don’t wear red lipstick because someone once told you it was too much for you, reevaluate that belief and come to your own conclusions. (And try a red – we bet it'll look lovely!)
2. Start with Skincare
If you’re eager to get started, but not sure what to purchase first, we recommend starting with skincare. You can check out our skincare guide for specific recommendations for your skin type.
When using new skincare, remember to give your skin time to adjust. After years of applying not-so-natural products, your skin might freak out a little at first, but give it time. After about a week or two, take note of how your skin looks and feels. By then you should see improvement in the look and texture of your skin.
3. Sample Stuff
Not sure about that new cleanser everyone is raving about? Wondering how that deep pink lipstick will look on you but don't want to shell out before you're sure? Easy – just order a sample from our sampling program!
It's a great way for you to try new brands and test a product before you buy.
Most samples are easily added to your cart right from the product's page. Just select 'sample size' from the drop down menu.
4. Find Your Tribe
The green beauty community is full of people like you who are eager to share their experiences, makeup tips, and skincare suggestions.
Keep an eye out for websites and blogs (like ours) that will help you along your green beauty journey. Read up on the founders of beauty brands, follow them on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook and be sure to interact.
