Best Clean Beauty Products

Each January, it’s customary to usher in the new year with a robust list of resolutions. Most common are the wellness vows to take better care of ourselves. That usually means we embark upon new workout routines, pledges to eat better, and if we’re really ambitious, we sign up for stress management classes or meditation apps. But what about our skin? In order to embrace the best version of ourselves, we want to glow from both the inside out and the outside in. What better way to do that than empowering ourselves with a clean skincare routine? With that in mind, I’ve compiled a list of the 30 best clean beauty products to help you step-up your wellness for the new year.

The Body Electric

Beauty brands at all price points have really improved over the past few years in terms of product selection. You can now find clean deodorants, body scrubs, skin-brightening creams, and an abundance of other options that simply didn’t exist five years ago. These are some of my personal favorites, particularly the REN Moroccan Sugar Body Polish. It leaves my skin feeling as smooth as silk.

About Face

Investing in clean moisturizers and serums does not mean giving up anti-aging components. Quite the opposite! Many brands have joined the clean beauty facial craze, and the improvements in overall lines and wrinkles speak for themselves. A stand-out pick for me is the One Love Bio-Retinol. I’d been looking for a clean alternative that won’t irritate my skin, and One Love delivers.

Raise Your Hands

My mom always said that you can tell a woman’s age by her hands. Well, thankfully, that’s no longer entirely true. There are so many clean hand treatments available, it can be a bit overwhelming. But have no fear—I’m here to lend a helping (wait for it) hand!

Sister Golden Hair

Up until recently, finding clean haircare products meant a trip to Whole Foods and settling for mediocre formulas. The main reason is that hair products are uniquely challenging to formulate with clean ingredients. But these selections below have upped the haircare game, leaving locks glowing. As a victim of Miami frizzy hair, I can’t do without my L’Oreal Sulfate-Free Shampoo or my OLAPLEX Bonding Oil. Game-changers!

Kiss and Makeup

Arguably the most diverse selection of clean products to choose from are in the makeup category. You can find everything from clean foundations to concealers, eyeshadows to mascara, blushes to highlighters, and anything in between. It was hard to narrow down my favorites, but if I had to call out leaders in this category, it’s easily Vapor and Chantecaille.

Good Scents

The fragrance industry is a little late to the clean game, but their arrival is a welcome addition to round out your beauty collection. Not only are some of the scents absolutely divine, but the ingredients in these perfumes hit all the right notes. A special mention to Diptyque, which you may have noticed in a few of these categories. Their fragrances are sophisticated without overpowering the senses. I’m clearly a fan!
