10 Easy Swaps to Totally
Detox Your Beauty Routine
Making the switch from conventional, potentially toxic beauty and personal-care products to clean ones is easier than ever this year. The tech in clean and nontoxic has more than caught up to conventional, the ingredient sourcing is more sophisticated than ever, and the level of luxury is truly delightful.
From a nothing-else-like-it detoxifying shampoo to a cushy, ultramoisturizing body cream and a decadent face mask, we’ve created a full-body plan for going clean that works no matter what your skin type, no matter what your age. In place of potentially endocrine-disrupting preservatives, synthetic fragrances, thickeners, binders, polymers, and more, there are nourishing botanical extracts and oils that truly support skin health. There are also luxurious textures, incredible scents, and skin-rousing formulas that leave you silky and radiant from head to toe.
GP’S FAVORITE EXFOLIANT
The Exfoliating Instant Facial instantly
brightens and softens skin to reveal a glowing,
smoother-looking complexion. Natural alpha and
beta hydroxy acids sweep away dead skin cells;
plant-based cellulose beads exfoliate further, while
releasing soothing vitamin B5, leaving skin supple,
soft, and utterly revitalized. The Exfoliating Instant
Facial is formulated with USDA-certified organic
ingredients and contains approximately 86 percent
total organic content.

It starts out as a powder (a blend of raw cacao,
bamboo charcoal, soil nutrients, and spices), only
releasing its potent elements once mixed with water.
The resulting mousse is designed to help soothe
breakouts. Use Lindstrom’s facial treatment bowl
and brush to mix the paste.

ENERGIZING BODY WASH
An invigorating plant-based body cleanser that
leaves your skin feeling refreshed and helps clear
your mind. The magic of botanicals—the fresh,
organic roots of ginger and ashwagandha—combines
with the subtly spicy aromatic power of Japanese
shiso leaf, Indian black pepper oil, and pink
peppercorn berries to awaken the senses and uplift
the spirit, the emotions, and the whole body.

grapefruit, and rosemary essential oils, enlivening

dry-brushing, or you can actually apply it with a dry
brush, working upward from the feet in a circular
motion, toward the heart for ultimate treatment.

energizing—skin-detox step. Made from pure,
natural sisal, this brush exfoliates lightly and sweeps
