Embrace the new year and follow our five easy steps to your new clean 2021 beauty routine.

January is the time when many of us will feel like changing things up. So why not head to your beauty cupboard as it’s a great place to start! Now, we don’t just mean to sort out and make your products look pretty on the shelf. To truly clean up your beauty regime is to understand how to choose products and ingredients that are clean and natural. Follow our five easy steps, and you’ll have a new clean beauty regime in no time!

STEP ONE: DECLUTTER

First things first, you need to sort through all the products you own and get rid of anything you don’t use anymore. Check the expiry dates of products too – and if they’re well past it – then chuck them in the bin. We know it’s hard to get rid of products you’ve spent money on but this part requires tough love. Keep in mind though, not everything has to go in the bin. If it’s simply a case of not liking a product that hasn’t expired, then check with friends to see if someone might like to try it.

STEP TWO: READ THE LABLES

Now you’ve edited your beauty cupboard to the bare necessities you can start building up your new clean beauty regime. The best way to do this is to investigate and read the labels of natural products. Look out for organic accreditations and clinical certifications on natural skincare. These third-party accreditations, like the ones Trilogy displays from NATRUE and Biogro, mean they are made without toxins, parabens and GMO ingredients. In Trilogy’s case, their products are also ethically and sustainably made, and cruelty-free. In addition to that, any product featuring the internationally recognised NATRUE label guarantees the product is free from silicone oils and derivatives, has no synthetic fragrance or colours, no petroleum-derived products and no genetically modified ingredients. With this knowledge, you can feel confident that you’re choosing clean products which will not only care for your skin but because Trilogy uses environmentally friendly practices, they will be gentle on the planet too.

STEP THREE: BE MINDFUL OF INGREDIENTS

Watch out for any formulations that contain a toxin or harmful ingredients. Here is a list of common ingredients that are best to avoid…

Petrochemicals: These are widely used by cosmetic companies because they make products go on smoother - but there is a downside. Some petrochemicals like mineral oils, clog pores.

Parabens: These preservatives which are used to prolong shelf life can enter your body through your skin. Parabens have been linked to breast cancer and reproductive issues.

Microplastics: These tiny plastic beads (often used in exfoliators) pose an environmental threat as their small sizes mean they can be eaten by wildlife.

Synthetic colours: Usually made from coal tar, petroleum, and artificial fragrances these can cause irritation and actually offer no benefit to your skin.

Silicones: Often found in moisturisers to give a silky texture, silicones provide a temporary surface effect but have no long-term benefits.
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS): Avoid harsh detergents such as SLS which disrupt the skin’s balance. Instead, look for cleansing products that use gentle plant-based agents.

STEP FOUR: EXPLORE NEW CLEAN NATURAL SKINCARE INNOVATION

The natural ingredient space is constantly evolving, and companies like Trilogy work with the very best of clean natural ingredients while avoiding all synthetic film-formers and emulsifiers.

Globally, there is a revolution in both the performance and acceptance of natural skincare and a growing realisation that products by the serious natural brands can deliver the same level (if not better!) results than their big-brand synthetic counterparts. This means companies like Trilogy are constantly breaking new ground and use a wide range of incredibly effective botanical ingredients, from their signature rosehip oil to trending ingredients such as retinol alternative, bakuchiol, plant-derived hyaluronic acid, and complexes such as L22, Glycablend and Rosapene.

STEP FIVE: PLAY

Doing research to change your skincare regime to one that consists of clean beauty products is one thing, but sometimes the only way to truly find your favourites is to try them. With a constantly growing and evolving range that consists of over 40 clean natural beauty products Trilogy have something for every skin type. Remember - you don’t have to add every product at once, sometimes, testing one out will be enough for you to realise what your skin likes, and what it doesn’t. In saying that, if you are looking for a complete overhaul, then we’ve created a ‘capsule wardrobe’ of clean beauty products to suit every skin type.

Sensitive Skin:

If you have skin that reacts or gets easily irritated, then you’re in luck (although it may not always seem that way!) This range is also great for sensitised skin, which means those that need a break from harsh chemicals or too much makeup. Trilogy has an entire range dedicated to combating these issues.
