Nontoxic Makeup to Keep Teenagers Healthy

This blog post will provide tips on finding safe, nontoxic makeup for teenagers. We will discuss the importance of choosing natural ingredients and how to identify unhealthy ingredients that can cause health risks. With the help of this blog post, teenagers can make informed and safe decisions about cosmetic purchases and develop healthy and safe habits early on.


Why Natural Ingredients are Important for Teenagers

Teenagers are beginning to experiment with makeup more than ever before. That’s why as parents, it’s important to remain informed about the ingredients in makeup and their impact. 

In order to create safe and healthy beauty regimes for teens to enjoy without risking long-term damage to their skin and health, natural ingredients must be used.

In everyday makeup, there are chemicals that cause skin irritation, disrupt hormonal processes, and can even lead to body burden. That’s when autoimmune diseases are caused, insomnia, infertility, and even cancer by repeated toxin exposure. What we put on our skin matters from a young age. And makeup is not exempt from unhealthy chemicals. 

That’s why it’s so important for teens to build healthy habits while they’re young and use makeup with natural ingredients. These ingredients include fruit extracts, honey, aloe, plant oils, and more. It’s not impossible to create high-quality makeup with healthy ingredients, it just requires conscious effort. 

Natural makeup offers a variety of benefits compared to traditional products laden heavy with chemicals that can disrupt hormones in the body. Some benefits of natural beauty products include a reduction in acne breakouts caused by harsh foundation formulas and the regulation of sebum production so that teenagers are not overproducing oils. 

Additionally, these gentle options have been found to contain nutrients that help repair damaged skin faster. For instance, Clean Beauty by Joy’s Pro Prep Face Primer and Flawless Finish Foundation include Aloe, which is great for cooling and repairing the skin after a sunburn. 

Ingredients to Avoid 

Knowing that some ingredients can cause skin and health issues, you have to know which ones to look out for when shopping for beauty products. Here are some of the most significant, but there are many more.

  1. Parabens. (Propyl-, Isopropyl-, Butyl-, and Isobutyl)
  2. Synthetic colors
  3. Propylene glycol
  4. Mineral oil and petroleum (also called petrolatum, petroleum jelly, and paraffin oil)
  5. Sulfates
  6. Phenoxyethanol 
  7. Phthalates


Trustworthy Makeup 

Seeking out trustworthy makeup is no easy task. On one hand, you want to ensure the ingredients are nontoxic and safe. On the other, it can be daunting to check every ingredient label in the drugstore. 

We recommend finding a couple of brands you know you can count on. To do that, seek out brands that promote being clean, but don’t stop there! Make sure you read the ingredient labels for those brands. If they have natural and safe ingredients, you know you can count on them moving forward. 

Clean Beauty by Joy’s mission is to provide safe and clean beauty products that contain mainly organic ingredients. You can trust our makeup to be high-performing and safe for teens to use. Check out our shop for some makeup products, and take a peek at our ingredients to see for yourself! 

Parents can rest assured knowing that their teen will be healthy when using toxin-free makeup and beauty products.
