Your Guide to a Sustainable, Eco Beauty Routine

There are honestly a few good reasons to embark on a sustainable, all-natural and organic beauty routine, one of them being the fact that you actually cut out all the toxins and chemicals that you probably can’t even pronounce on the labels of most beauty products that are currently on your shelf (that aren’t eco-friendly).

If easily irritable, sensitive skin is the bane of your existence, try to eliminate parabens, phthalates and sulfates in all your beauty products for a start. It helps to make mental notes on certain ingredients that might or might not suit your skin. As terrifying as this sounds, artificial ingredients can actually be absorbed into the skin and into your bloodstream, later on building up in your body.

Of course, no new or sudden lifestyle change will be effective unless you’re armed with an arsenal of well-researched information, so get smart and read up on what you need to know about kickstarting an eco, all-natural beauty routine. Whether the environmental effects of plastic microbeads in exfoliants and soaps, or even the necessity of parabens as preservatives in products, you’d be surprised as how much you learn with reading up on various sources.

As much as you might love the idea of going all-green, it’s important to be realistic with your goals and actions. Start with what you can alternate with natural choices, such as soaps, shampoos, and even moisturisers. If all-natural nail polish and mascara are pretty hard to find, don’t sweat it – take your time with looking for sustainable and healthy alternatives.

Here are some products we’re loving that you could add into your all-new, organic, natural beauty ritual:
