Are you still in the mindset that switching to natural products will be expensive? Or maybe you’ve put it in the ‘too hard basket’ to find? Well think again my friend! Today more than ever we are surrounded by AMAZING natural products from house hold cleaning products, to skincare and makeup which not only helps us thrive thanks to the lack of nasties (aka none) but also just as important, work just as (if not better) than everything you are currently using.
Today we have our fave natural beauty goddess and expert Emmily Banks to share her tips on affordable switches you can make.
Get your shopping list ready…
Are you looking to make the switch to natural but worried it might all be a bit too expensive? A lot of people come to me concerned about the cost of making the switch but the truth is- it really doesn’t need to be expensive! My number one philosophy when it comes to natural beauty is ‘less is more’, so simply by stopping using toxic cosmetics and letting your skin breathe, you are on your way to making the switch. For those that want to maintain their makeup routine, switching has never been easier or mote affordable. The natural and eco-conscious beauty world is growing rapidly meaning it’s no longer the case that natural beauty also has to cost you an arm and a leg! In fact! Some of my favourite natural beauty products are far cheaper than any of the mainstream products I used to use AND they are great for you, the environment and don’t test on animals either- want to know what they are?
Read on for my favourite and most affordable switches to natural!
