As our new year’s resolutions are often focused around grand goals for wellness, spirituality and physical fitness, we often forget about our daily routines and how small changes can go a long way towards helping us feel better, lighter, nurtured and more conscious.
One of the simplest ways we can enhance our daily wellness is by turning a conscientious eye to our make-up counters and beauty products. Mindful beauty purchases not only benefit our bodies, they are also a great way to nurture our hearts and planet. Further to, when we purchase from companies that are conscientious about their ingredients, we are supporting brands that have oftentimes chosen to put the well-being of their customers ahead of mass profits, by sourcing responsible, quality ingredients that are truly beneficial to our bodies. And as part of our 2019 resolutions, why not absolve to part with our hard earned money responsibly and exchange it for products that serve us not only from a beauty perspective, but from a heart perspective as well?
Here are 5 of our favourite Canadian clean beauty products and companies to try this year:
