Simple Steps To Create A Sustainable Skincare Journey

A sustainable lifestyle is one that has less of an impact on the environment and encourages you to be more mindful about how you live. When it comes to skincare, there are many ways you can go green!

Whether you're looking to create a natural & sustainable skincare journey or are already on the path, here are 6 simple steps you can take to make your skincare routine more planet-friendly!

 

1. Keep it simple:

A simpler skincare routine is not only gentler on your skin but also on the planet.

Too many products can congest your pores and damage your skin barrier, leading to red, blotchy, sensitive, & irritated skin. Too many products also means more waste and money spent.

One of the best ways to streamline your skincare routine is to choose multipurpose products. For example, Terre Verdi's Argan Shea Multitasking Cream can be used as a cleansing balm to remove dirt and makeup, and as an overnight hydrating mask.

 

2. Switch to organic products

Conventional skin care products contain harsh chemicals that are harmful to the skin & the environment, which is why we recommend opting for organic products. 

Organic skincare products are made from natural ingredients that are free from pesticides and fertilizers. They’re kinder to your skin and don’t have a negative impact on the planet. 

Additionally, organic products are also cruelty-free. By buying organic products you're not only protecting the environment and supporting healthy skin but you're also helping to end animal testing. 

 

3. Ditch the single-use cotton pads

One of the easiest ways to make your skincare routine more sustainable is by ditching disposable cotton pads. Not only does cotton require a great deal of water to grow, but pesticides are used in its cultivation, leaving behind a harmful footprint on the planet.

As an alternative to disposable pads, we recommend using Flawless’s Reusable Makeup Remover Pads. Not only can they be washed and reused over and over again, but they also eliminate the need for single-use products!

 

4. Buy zero-waste

We are all becoming more aware of how most of our waste ends up in landfills and oceans. One of the easiest ways to make your skincare routine more sustainable is by buying zero-waste products.  This will help you avoid using excess packaging materials as well as minimize plastic waste from discarded containers. A good example is The Natural Spa's Face Wash Bars– these bars are made from natural ingredients that are concentrated into solid bars so they don't need any packaging at all. 

 

5. Upcycle your containers

When it comes to building a more sustainable skincare routine, upcycling & repurposing items is essential! For example, instead of throwing away empty makeup bottles, you can use them as travel-sized containers for your favorite products. This is a great way to save waste & money!

 

6. Shop for brands that give back to the environment:

Finally, another great way to make your skincare routine more eco-friendly is to buy from brands that give back to the environment.

At Ecoverse, we not only make sure that all of our deliveries are carbon neutral, but we also donate 1% of each sale revenue to NGOs that support sustainability.

We hope these tips help you get started on your own sustainable & natural skincare journey!
