5 Ways to Make Your Beauty Routine More Sustainable

Sustainable skincare is more than natural ingredients...

To some of us, our daily skincare ritual is second nature. It has an impact not only on the appearance of our skin, but possibly on the plant as well. It's worth the time to pause and think about its impact on the environment. Sustainability is a word that's trending in the beauty world right now, but what that really entails is being eco-friendly with our beauty choices. Sustainability should be a way of life.

Below are five tips to make your beauty regimen more eco-conscious.

1. Buy Products with Recyclable Packaging

More companies are going eco-friendly with their packaging and getting rid of plastic materials. Make sure you look for a recyclable claim on the retail box.

2. Upcycle Your Old Empty Bottles

Still throwing away used skincare bottles? Yawn. That’s the boring, old-fashioned way to part with your bottles — and you are neither boring nor old. Upcycling is the new and more fabulous version of recycling. Next time you have an empty skincare bottle in your hand, brainstorm all the different ways it could be reused. Doing so can help you enjoy a low-waste lifestyle, while repurposing your empties into something beautiful to behold. Maybe that empty face cleanser bottle could be the perfect vase for some flowers or succulents.

3. Look For Products That are Made with Earth-Friendly Ingredients

Make sure the ingredients in your skincare products aren't just high-quality, but are also ethically sourced and eco-friendly. Avoid any products that uses Parabens or Phthalates, chemicals that are widely used as artificial preservatives in cosmetic products and are added to increase the shelf life of the product. There are growing numbers of studies that conclude that these chemicals are harmful to both humans and the environment.

4. Reduce Your Water Usage

When washing your face or using the sink during your beauty routine, make sure you always turn the water off when you aren't using it. If you can hear the sink running while you are applying the cleanser to your face, this tip is for you.

5. Shop From Sustainable Brands That Give Back to Planet Earth

When buying skincare products, try and shop from brands that have a sustainable mission and give back to the planet.
