We’re all making gradual changes to our daily routines when it comes to sustainability, whether it’s your tote bag you take to the supermarket or your at-home recycling regime, but what about your beauty routine? There’s so many more things you could be doing, that’s why we’re giving you the low-down on sustainable swaps to make your beauty routine eco-friendly! From Soap Bars to Refillable Fragrance, read on to find out more...
Ditch The Wipes
So you’ve been using wipes to cleanse your skin pretty much all of your life, right? Don’t worry, we have too! However it’s time to make the swap and ditch those all important cleansing wipes. Not only can wipes clog your pores, they're not that great with removing your makeup either, allowing leftover residue, dirt, oil and grime to sit on your skin too. It’s now time you look ahead and make the ultimate eco-friendly swap to a gentle cleanser - after all, your precious wipes are made from plastic textiles that pollute our landfills and oceans, so why not make the change today?
Here’s a few cleansers we recommend -
- Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel £46.99
- Super Facialist Rose Hydrate Cleanser £5.99
- Lancome Lait Galateis Douceur Facial Cleanser Fluid £24.99
Refill Your Fragrance
You could recycle your perfume bottles or leave them on your dresser as decoration or you could even have them refilled with the original juice to use all over again! Refilling your products is a great way to avoid using single-use plastics so why not purchase the refillable Thierry Mugler Alien Eau de Parfum today and help save the planet!
Use Your Products Up
This might sound like a pretty obvious top tip but it’s surprisingly useful! If you’ve got a box of makeup or skincare full of half used products, then it’s probably time you dug out your old favourites and used them up! In future, try not to make too many purchases of products you already have, you really don’t need four different eye creams, just use one and purchase another when necessary. Simple!
Try A Shampoo/Body Bar
A soap bar may be small but it lasts much longer than a regular shower gel. If you didn’t already know, we usually tend to use more shower gel than we really need! A standard 200ml showergel last for about a month on average whilst a soap bar may last several months!
Not only are soap bars cost effective, they’re eco-friendly too! Soap bars are made from raw metals that don’t pollute the planet, with soap bars there’s no waste! With very little packaging too, the bars make the perfect planet-friendly alternative. Whether you’re on the hunt for a shampoo & conditioning bar or a body bar, give them a go today!
Here’s a few soap bars we recommend -
- gruum hair Colour Protect Shampoo Bar £6.95
- Love Beauty And Planet Coconut and Mimosa Shampoo Bar £4.99
- Scottish Fine Soaps Vetiver & Sandalwood Cleansing Body Bar £5.95
