How to make your beauty routine more eco-friendly?
Our beauty routine can have a negative impact on the planet and it is in our hands to change that. Have you noticed how much plastic we consume with beauty and hygiene products? Concerned about the environment? Not only it’s enough that you use products free of toxic chemicals, contribute with your grain of sand and put into practice these tips to achieve an ecological beauty routine.
Say goodbye to cotton!
If you are one of those who prefer facial cleansing with cotton, you will be aware of how many discs you can dispose of over a week.
Replace the wet wipes or disposable makeup remover discs with reusable organic cotton makeup remover discs, you can also try microfiber facial cleansing cloths, which simply run on water and wash in the washing machine.
The best thing about microfiber cloths is that they last up to five years. That's tons of cotton that we save...and we are also saving the planet. They work even with long-lasting or waterproof makeup.
Change your shampoo!
Try shampoos that have a bar format, so you will avoid the plastic of their container. You can do the same with the conditioner, there are so many bar versions!
You can also look for shampoos that come in biodegradable containers such as glass.
Toothbrushes are not biodegradable
For those who use manual toothbrush, there is an eco alternative that has almost become a trend in recent times.
Change your brush for one of bamboo and wood. Without a doubt, a small gesture in daily hygiene that will contribute to the world to not fill our oceans with plastics.
Try ecologic makeup
We know that it is difficult to find makeup options that do not contain plastic, and that is that it is the most used material in the cosmetic industry, but every time we have more ecological makeup options. You can already find ecological makeup lines, both inside and out.
Eco makeup tools
If you have to renew or acquire new makeup tools, consider opting for ecological versions, neglect these are increasingly present in the beauty market, so it will not be difficult to find them.
Opt for options made from bamboo, recycled aluminum and biodegradable containers.
Choose vegan and organic skincare products
Did you know our skin absorbs up to 60 percent of the products we apply onto it? This is scary to think about, especially if we use those products that are processed and full of preservatives, chemicals, and toxins
Natural and organic ingredients are more gentle on the skin than instead of harsh artificial chemical ingredients that are usually found in commercial skin care products. Choosing your products carefully is an essential step to have an ecofriendly skincare routine, committed to the environment, all our Ammaterre products are 100% vegan and cruelty free.
And you, what do you do for the environment?
