Every January, we make resolutions to eat healthier and take better care of our bodies (bye-bye holiday sweets, hello winter greens!). But have you ever paused to think about what you're putting on your body and not just in it? Loading up on clean, nutrient-rich foods is just one part of the wellness equation—we also need clean, nutrient-rich beauty products to feed our skin.
So this month, in the spirit of the new year and fresh starts, we're cleaning out our bathroom cabinets and giving our morning and bedtime routines an overhaul by swapping old beauty products for clean, non-toxic, and organic versions, from our face moisturizer to our lip balm and deodorant. Below, check out 13 clean skincare picks from brands we love that will help you put your best face forward in 2019.
1. Crude Facial Cleansing Oil
We love Crude's entire line of plant-based products, including this popular cleansing oil. Just a few drops of the non-comedogenic cleansing oil removes makeup and moisturizes. Massage into the face and remove with the brand's washable Pull Cloths for healthy, glowing skin.
2. Indie Lee Lip Treat
3. Oille Facial Serum
This organic cranberry + green tea serum by Oille is no joke—the lightweight, stimulating formula features a light herbal scent and helps tone and tighten the skin. Think of it like a pilates class for your face.
4. Primally Pure Deodorant
Most traditional deodorants and antiperspirants contain yucky ingredients like aluminum and chemical-laced fragrances. Ditch your drugstore deodorant and order a tube of this natural lavender deodorant by Primally Pure. The aluminum-free formula is made with organic, nontoxic ingredients, and helps control odor all day. That's what we call a win-win.
5. Primally Pure Blue Tansy Beauty Cream
This organic face cream features just five ingredients, including blue tansy essential oil which helps sooth irritated and inflamed skin. After cleansing, apply a small amount to your face, neck, and chest for a healthy, radiant glow.
6. Herbivore Botanicals Rose Hibiscus Face Mist
Herbivore Botanicals is one of our most beloved clean skincare brands. We're obsessed with all of their products (and their beautiful packaging), including this refreshing, hydrating face mist made with rose, hibiscus, and coconut water. Spritz it on your face after cleansing or throughout the day for a quick pick-me-up.
7. Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask
You don't have to be on vacation to take advantage of this rich, creamy mask by Summer Fridays. The cult-favorite face mask helps hydrate skin so you can get your glow on! Apply for 10 minutes and wipe off (no need to rinse!) or wear it overnight and wake up to fresh, dewy skin.
8. One Love Organics Vitamin C Facial Serum
This moisturizing facial serum by One Love Organics is made with 100% natural ingredients, including jojoba, green tea, rosemary, and more. The plant-based vitamin C serum helps boost dull, stressed skin. Use it in the morning and before bed for a dose of serious radiance.
9. Grown Alchemist Intensive Hand Cream
Two reasons we love this hand lotion by Grown Alchemist: 1) The ultra-chic packaging 2) The ultra-rich formula—your dry winter hands will thank you. Keep a tube in your purse, by your sink, or on your nightstand.
10. Goop Perfecting Eye Cream + Replenishing Night Cream
When it comes to Gwyneth Paltrow's glowing, luminous skin, we'll have what she's having. Which is why we decided to try Goop's lineup of ultra-clean, ultra-luxe skincare, and we're happy to report it was love at first application. We're especially big fans of the Perfecting Eye Cream and Replenishing Night Cream—both are richly hydrating and nourishing. We also love the brand's Luminous Melting Cleanser—washing your face never felt so good.
11. Herbivore Botanicals Prism Serum + Rose Quartz Facial Roller
To help smooth, clarify, and even your skin tone, we love the Prism Exfoliating Glow Potion by Herbivore made with natural fruit acids. For bonus skincare points, pair the serum with the Rose Quartz Facial Roller. Facial rolling can help firm and depuff the skin, as well as help skincare products absorb better. Apply your serum or facial oil, and then gently roll it into the skin using upward motions. Tip: Keep your facial roller in the fridge for extra depuffing benefits!
12. Primally Pure Body Butter
Smooth this calming, organic body butter all over your limbs for hydrated, healthy skin. We love this fresh Eucalyptus + Lavender scent, but Primally Pure's body butters are also available in Almond + Vanilla and Citrus + Mint scents.
13. OSEA White Algae Mask
Made with white marine algae and white tea, this face mask by Osea is like a beach vacation for your face. The brand is known for its seaweed-rich skincare, and this mask is no exception—use it to help hydrate, soften, brighten, and plump the skin.
