5 Simple Steps to a Low-Tox Facial Skincare Routine You'll Love (and Your Skin Will Thank You For!)

5 Simple Steps to a Low-Tox Facial Skincare Routine You'll Love (and Your Skin Will Thank You For!)

Ever wonder what all those ingredients listed on your skincare products actually mean? You're not alone!  Many products are packed with chemicals that might not be the best for our skin or overall health.  But we can help with that! Here at Share the Soap, we're passionate about creating wholesome, low-tox skincare that nourishes your skin naturally. 

Ready to enrich your self care while ditching the harsh chemicals and embracing a more gentle approach?  Here are our top 5 tips for a low-tox skincare routine you can feel great about:

  1. Declutter and Decode: First things first, take a good look at your existing skincare products.  As you go through them, pay attention to the ingredients list. Look out for potentially irritating chemicals, including phthalates, aldehydes, and synthetic musks.  These can trigger allergies and sensitivities. But also look at the main ingredients. Are they ingredients known to enrich your skin and senses? 
  2. Simplify Your Routine: Sometimes, less is truly more!   Our skin often thrives with a simpler routine that focuses on high-quality, natural ingredients. 
  3. Embrace the Gradual Swap: Switching everything at once can be overwhelming (and expensive!).  Instead,  gradually replace your current products as they run out. 
  4. Focus on the Necessary Steps:  Cleansing, toning, and moisturizing:  Using gentle cleansers keeps your skin mantle in-tact by not stripping away your body’s natural oils. Also, combine steps when you can. Our Facial Cleansing Bars are a gentle cleanser and toner in one step. Follow with our Every Day Facial Renewal moisturizer formulated with enhancing ingredients like organic argan oil which deeply hydrates while balancing your body’s natural oil production and an essential oil blend formulated by a certified aromatherapist to love your skin while grounding your senses with aromatherapy. We like to call it aromabeauty.
  5. Patch Test Whenever Using a New Product: While not as likely, it is possible to have sensitivities to natural ingredients.  Before applying a new product all over your face, do a patch test on a small area of your inner arm. Wait 24 hours to see if there's any reaction.
