Then read this article first.
Going all natural can feel overwhelming. Where do you even start? We created a step by step mini guide, to guide you through this journey. Whether you're a newbie or a clean skincare pro, these Nourished picks are a must-try. Let's have a look at your daily routine.
Step 1. Clean Natural Smile
Brushing our teeth is an essential part of our daily routine. Most people have been using plastic toothbrushes for too long and when it breaks down, microplastics are created. This can cause inflammations in the body and is bad for the environment and our wildlife. A simple swap is to use our Bamboo Charcoal Toothbrush with Natural Toothpaste to get your breath extra fresh. Oh! And please don't forget to cleane your tongue with the Copper Tongue Cleaner. Want to find out why cleaning your tongue is a very important thing to do?
Step 2. Soft, clear skin
Clean skin, the name says it already. There are many benefits for switching your regular skincare to natural skincare. Conventional skincare may contain synthetic chemicals that have been associated with various concerns, including skin allergies, irritations, hormonal disruption and many more. So it is important to be aware of what we expose our skin to, it is crucial for our health and well-being. People often assume that natural skincare products aren't as effective, as a matter of fact they are but they work without harsh chemicals which are damaging the skin. Our natural bestsellers:
Step 3. Hair treatments
Switching your hair care is often a big step but, gentler, more natural haircare products often aim to preserve the natural oils in your hair while cleansing it effectively. Ingredients like plant-based extracts, essential oils, and sulfate-free cleansers can help maintain a better balance, leaving your hair clean without overly drying it out.

Our favourite is the Nourishing Hair Pack / Shampoo and Conditioner, it's effective and looks aesthetically pleasing in your bathroom.
Step 4. Cleanse & Refresh

Apply our Natural Deodorant Stick from Nourished Daily to allow your body to naturally detoxify without clogging sweat glands with aluminum. When you first make the switch from regular to natural deodorant, be patient. Your body will start sweating and detoxifying again. This side effect actually helps you become healthier and will likely calm down as your body returns to its natural rhythm and balance. You and your armpits will love it!

With up to 80% of the signs of ageing being from sun damage, applying a natural sunscreen daily is just as important as your day cream. Protect your skin with Natural Sunscreen with SPF30 from Little Urchin. If your skin needs that extra bit of colour, try the Natural Tinted Sunscreen with SPF 30.
