The Beauty Cleanse Experience - So Far!


Hi everyone!

First things first – I want to say a big heartfelt “Thank you!” for joining me on the Beauty Cleanse blog. Today's post is a little different from my usual look at clean beauty products but I wanted to update you and let you know personally how things are going over here with the cleansssse!

In these three short months, my skin has transformed itself. My oily and dry patches are balancing out to a sweet spot, acne prone spots clearing up, fine lines becoming less visible, and my face feels smooth, soft, and supple. I can’t pinpoint the results to a single miracle product or attribute it to any one thing I’m doing differently now but I’m thinking that it might be a change in perspective - becoming more mindful about what my skin needs and being proactive to address those needs.


As I get older, I’m realizing more and more that I can’t just put on a single moisturizer and hope that my skin will look better as the years go by. I’m gradually learning to take care of the skin that I currently have by allotting more thought into a skin care regimen that will slow down signs of aging – fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, loss of elasticity – instead of trying to reverse years of neglect ten, twenty, thirty years from now. 

  

Simply out of daily habit, we take care of our bodies – by wearing sunglasses, eating veggies, brushing and flossing at least once a day, washing our hands after a subway ride – but how often do we practice a habit of putting on sunscreen each morning? 

Honestly, it’s been a slow and gradual transition – nothing radical, like purging our home of everything and anything that might be harmful. A couple things, like chemical sunscreen and my beloved perfume collection, I’ve put aside indefinitely but most things I’m still going through and using up. And what’s been especially exciting is even seeing my husband take up the baton by swapping out the brands of shampoo, body wash, and deodorant he’d been using for over a decade!

One of the things I cherish most about the cleanse has been in meeting a community, some even in my closest circle of friends, who have already taken up the torch for a clean, sustainable, and healthy lifestyle. I’m so grateful for your kind messages, words of encouragement, and beauty tips. Thank you!
