Here's How To Care For Your Skin The Eco-Friendly Way
The steps you need to follow when starting an eco-friendly skincare routine
Caring for your skin is incredibly important as this complexion will last you a lifetime! However, most skincare products on the high street aren’t very sustainable, making it feel impossible to find eco skincare saviours.
Don’t give up hope just yet – we’ve compiled this guide to help you establish a reliable eco-friendly skincare regime and protect your skin in the process.
Pucker up with natural lip balm
Our lips are exposed every day from the endless eating, drinking and talking we do, so looking after them is a must. If you want to prevent pesky dry flakes and keep your lips kissable, our selection of plastic-free lip balm help them to stay nourished whilst also caring for the planet.
Our natural lip balms have no nasty parabens or petroleum inside, making your lips both soft and sustainable! Instead, treat your lips to organic ingredients that are neatly sealed in recyclable or reusable packaging – what’s not to love? Our personal favourite eco lip balm is Valley Mist’s Pure lip balm, which is a must-try eco skincare product.
Nourish your skin with natural moisturiser
Do you want to avoid dry and irritated skin? Moisturiser is a quick and easy fix for that, and opting for a natural moisturiser is one step better. Organic creams will leave you with softer skin and a healthy glow that skips out on harmful chemicals.
Don’t know where to start with this eco-friendly skincare step? Our products contain many different organic moisturising ingredients, including coconut oil, olive oil, and shea butter, so research which one is the best for your skin type. These natural moisturisers also come in various forms – from UpCircle’s body cream, there’s something for everyone.
Don’t forget to protect your skin – we also offer plastic-free moisturiser with SPF, which uses natural ingredients to shield your skin.
Keep it clean with eco-friendly soap
Liquid soap in plastic bottle dispensers may be incredibly convenient, but have you ever considered the chemical nasties they contain? By swapping to eco-friendly soaps, you can thoroughly clean and zap away any germs and bacteria, whilst still being gentle on the skin.
Natural soap bars reduce irritation and prevent inflammation, meaning you can start your journey to sumptuous skin whilst also protecting the environment. They also come wrapped in paper or card that can easily be recycled – yet another benefit of this eco skincare step. Funky Soap Shop's delicious Raspberry and Cream soap bar is a personal favourite, but we sell a whole selection of eco-friendly soaps for you to try.
As you can see, starting an eco-friendly skincare routine is as easy as pie! There are countless products on offer to kick start your eco skincare journey, so making the swap is simple!
