5 tips to make your beauty routine more eco friendly
Sustainability is today one of those priority issues for the planet. And perhaps the area that has resonated the most both in the UK and in other countries around the world is cosmetics: making our beauty routine a 100% sustainable process is on the front page. You can start with small actions that will make the gesture big. There are stores and brands such as Savers, Avon, Oriflame and Boots that are stopping testing on animals and even launching campaigns to make our beauty routine more eco-friendly. Here are 5 tips so you can incorporate them into your daily routine and contribute to the care of the environment.
Using solid shampoo, for example, is equivalent to three 250ml bottles. That's tons of plastic we can save the planet. Opt for this type of products or, if you can't always do it, try to use glass containers (to reuse them) or eco-friendly and biodegradable ones. If they are, it will be indicated on the label with the seals “eco-friendly PE” or “Green PE”, which means that they are made of bioplastic.
Tidy up your beauty closet
Become Marie Kondo every time you walk into your bathroom or sit in your vanity and tidy up your cosmetics to the max so that none of them are left forgotten at the bottom of the shelf. Remember that they all have an expiration date. They only last a few more months once the product is opened. Try to finish it before buying another one.
Reduce your consumption
The best thing anyone can do is to use what you have before buying anything else, whether it's an eco-friendly item or not. And then give a lot of thought to how replacing that item can be more sustainable. Another way to consume consciously is to opt for dual-function products such as a blush that can also be used on the lips.
Use reusable cleansing wipes
When removing makeup and cleaning our face, we use makeup remover wipes or cotton pads, consuming products with non-biodegradable materials and generating waste on a daily basis. It is very easy to carry out an ecological cleaning that makes us participate in the reduction of waste in the environment. If you want to continue using wipes, choose biodegradable ones instead of non-biodegradable ones.** But there are even more sustainable options such as the reusable make-up remover discs.**
Use wooden brushes
When we think of hairbrushes, the first ones that come to mind are plastic and metal ones. But this small change in our daily habits is not only beneficial for the planet, since wooden combs and brushes are 100% eco-friendly, but we will also see the benefits in the appearance of our hair. When combing our hair with plastic combs and brushes, static electricity is produced in our hair, while when they are made of wood, in addition to facilitating detangling, they prevent the hair from breaking so that it grows stronger and healthier.
