The words sustainable and clean are certaintly buzzy topics in the skincare community and on social media. Trying to be more sustaible with skincare products and using cleaner ingredients is a small yet effective way to help the environment. With April being National Earth Month, we want to highlight different ways that we are eco-friendly, as well as other ways to practice more earth-friendly skincare routines.
Using Cruelty Free Products
One way to make an eco-friendly change in your routine is ensuring that you are using cruelty-free products. At COSMEDIX, we pride ourselves on being cruelty-free. Making sure that your skincare is cruelty-free can help have a positive result in the environment as your conscious choice to shop ethical skincare can make a difference!
Wasting beauty products is something we are almost all guilty of. Not using up a full moisturizer before buying a new one, trying out 10 different face masks but only using 1, and letting products that you do not use go to waste are some of the most popular ways that we waste beauty products! Instead of constantly buying new skincare products, try to focus on the ones you will actually use. Another way to help reduce consumption is to use products for more than one purpose! For example, if you have a moisturizer or other skincare product that did not give you the results you wanted on your face, try using it on your arms and legs instead so it is not wasted.
Use Products with Botanical Ingredients
Reaching for products that are created with ingredients that are better for you and for the environment is a great way to make an eco-friendly change to your routines! At COSMEDIX, we use botanical ingredients and we exclude other potentially harmful ingredients such as Parabens and Mineral Oil. An example of products with botanical ingredients is Benefit Balance Antioxidant Toning Mist. Benefit Balance is formulated with different botanical ingredients such as Chamomile, Green Tea, Aloe, and Sandalwood to help give you results you want without compromising on ingredients. You can find other botanical ingredients in most of our bestselling skincare products!
Switching to an Oil-Based Makeup Remover
While we know that makeup wipes can be easier to use to remove your makeup at night, using a wipe daily is super wasteful! Instead of using and throwing away a new wipe every time you wear makeup, try using Purity Solution Nourishing Deep Cleansing Oil! This cleansing oil can be used consistently without creating any excess waste while removing makeup. Formulated with botanical ingredients such as Argan and Olive Oils, Purity Solution is a great option to help make your skincare routine more eco-friendly.
Other Small Ways to Have an Eco-friendlier Skincare Routine
If you are searching for more ways to have an eco-friendlier skincare routine, here are some ideas!
- Using reusable cotton rounds when applying toners such as Purity Balance Exfoliating Prep Toner.
- Using a washable towelette to dry your face off after cleansing instead of a single use paper towel.
- Not letting the water run when washing your face or applying a face mask.
- Finishing skincare products before buying a new one.
