So much variety of skin care formulas and products may clutter your bathroom. Empty plastic bottles, disposable cotton pads, and old brushes not only create a charged and confusing atmosphere in your house, but in the end, it also causes a lot of waste.
While changing the world sounds almost impossible, you can change your beauty routine to make it more sustainable. That way you can keep up with your rituals, ensuring you are doing your part to help the environment.
How to start? We’ll share 3 ways to approach a more sustainable beauty routine:
Recycle as much as you can
This applies to jars and containers, which you can reuse with a little creativity and Pinterest inspiration. But also, get rid of disposable beauty wipes and try reusable cotton pads.
You can find these made from cotton or terry cloth, fabrics that will gently clean your skin. After using, throw them in the laundry, and they will be as good as new.
A lot of harm can be reduced by picking the right beauty products at the store. Look for eco-friendly products, specifically those with a longer shelf life, as well as refillable options.
Moreover, search for brands that use sustainable packaging, for example, glass bottles, reusable bags, and no single-use plastics.
Use more and buy less
The truth is, we can avoid waste if we choose products we really like and use them frequently. Before buying more beauty products on a whim, reassess your stock and think if you have a replacement at home or can wait until the last one finishes. Our Omega Face Serum is a sugarcane-based Squalane and unlike Olive-based Squalane there is no runoff. This means there is no waste, thus making it sustainable.
This tip also applies to beauty tools, like razors. Improve your shaving game with a metal safety razor: smoother, safer, and more sustainable because it doesn’t require you to throw the whole head away, just change the blade.
Building a sustainable beauty routine will help the environment and improve your lifestyle! Making these changes will make you more mindful of your consumption and save you a lot of money in the long run.
