Polish your pearly whites

Nothing makes you feel more awake than super-fresh breath, so brush up with paraben-free hello® Charcoal Fluoride Free Toothpaste. Don’t be fooled by its jet-black colour — this is a whitening toothpaste that leans on activated charcoal to keep teeth free of surface stains for a bright smile.

Revive your hair

Next, step into the shower and cleanse your hair and scalp with an invigorating shampoo, like Renpure® plant-based beauty™ Tea Tree Lemon Sage Refreshing Moisture Shampoo. Not only will the crisp eucalyptus and peppermint scent instantly boost your energy levels, but the SLS-free formula’s tea tree and lemon sage deep cleans your scalp to aid with healthy hair growth.

Lather up

Get clean with a sumptuous body wash that restores balance and luster to your skin. With a creamy consistency and summery coconut scent, Live Clean Coconut Milk Body Wash is a plant-derived paraben and SLS-free wash, enriched with vitamins E and B that delivers the all-over hydration your skin needs to stay smooth all day long.

Refresh your skin

For a more mindful way to achieve smooth, clean skin, prep your canvas with an all-natural gel cleanser like the ZERO 100% Natural Face Wash. This British skincare find includes plant-based ingredients like sacha inchi and coconut oil, to soften skin while it cleanses.

Protect your complexion

Shield your skin from dullness and an uneven tone with the multi-tasking GARNIER GREEN LABS® Pinea-C Brightening Serum Cream. This innovative paraben, dye and mineral oil-free 3-in-1 serum-cream hybrid brightens and moisturizes, while SPF 30 protects against UV rays. After cleansing, press the dewy formula into your skin and reap its many benefits.

Add a moisture boost

For serious hydration, try a skin-quenching gel moisturizer. Honest Beauty® Hydrogel Cream from Jessica Alba’s clean beauty brand is formulated without parabens, phthalates or synthetic fragrances just to name a few of its benefits. It keeps skin plump and dewy all day while helping to reduce the look of fine lines.
