Lena Dunham has become a clean beauty convert

The clean beauty movement has been on quite a roll lately, with everyone from trend-setters like Gwyneth Paltrow to total royalty (looking at you Kate Middleton) stocking their beauty cabinets with non-toxic products. The latest famous face to join the fold? Girls star and creator, Lena Dunham.

On Wednesday, Dunham announced on Instagram that her Girls character was going “clean, mean, and green”—inspired, in part, by the real-life habits of the actress, who has been super progressive in her thinking about fitness and self-care.  Dunham has been a vocal proponent of healthier habits, with regular social media posts about working out at Tracy Anderson‘s studio (whose BFF Gwyneth recently collaborated with Juice Beauty—perhaps that’s how it ended up on her makeup table?), as well as updates on her mental and physical health. (The writer and actress suffers from bouts of anxiety, but also endometriosis—a chronic disease that affects nearly one out of 10 women).

So what natural beauty products is Dunham all about? We did some serious investigative (beauty) journalism, and—with a little help from Dunham herself—figured out what exactly is filling her makeup bag. Consider it the Girls cheat sheet to revamping your beauty products.

Scroll through for Dunham’s clean beauty-approved picks.
