Sustainability is currently the talk of the town in the beauty industry. Here are 7 easy tips you can add to reduce waste and be eco-friendly, without losing the luxury and comfort of your daily beauty routine.
Beauty Tip #1: Watch your Packaging. Be cautious of packaging when choosing your beauty products. Plastic bottles end up polluting our landfills and can be made with harmful chemicals, while glass is 100% recyclable and non-toxic. So, when you can choose glass bottles over plastic packaging.
Beauty Tip #2: Don’t Let the Water Run. Reduce water usage when brushing your teeth or washing your face, by turning off the faucet when you’re not actually using it. Think about how much water you’ll save in just a week’s time.
Beauty Tip #3: Ditch Disposables. Ditch your disposable makeup removers and cotton pads and replace them with a reusable option. Face Halo is a great alternative to wasteful makeup removers and can be used up to 200 times, just add water! Face Halo is made with technical fiber strands that are recyclable after it’s full usage and replaces the use of 500 makeup wipes.
Beauty Tip #4: Repurpose & Reuse. Did you know you can repurpose and reuse the packaging from your old beauty products? Use shampoo or foundation bottles to create a small vase or makeup brush holder.
Beauty Tip #5: Brush with Bamboo. Switch out your plastic toothbrush for a bamboo toothbrush. Bamboo is 100% compostable and biodegradable, and you can easily find one at any drug store for a minimal cost.
Beauty Tip #6: Shop Cruelty Free. Look for products that are made with all vegan ingredients and are cruelty free. Not only are you using products that are made with less synthetic ingredients, but you are also supporting our fuzzy friends and their rights.
Beauty Tip #7: Protect Our Oceans. Eliminate microbeads and microplastics that are commonly found in some face and body exfoliants. These tiny pieces of plastic may seem harmless, but they kill marine life when ingested and pollute our oceans.
