3 Simple Sustainable Beauty Switches

3 Simple Sustainable Beauty Switches

Do you want to make sustainable beauty choices? Overwhelmed by all the information…often contradictory.

I know, I was a bit lost when I started this journey, as beauty products are encased in so much plastic, packaging and chemicals! All the articles I read, highlighted different issues. Everything I did felt wrong!

So I focused on the products I used most, as well as targeting single use products. The following swaps were made about three years ago and the results have been incredible. Not only are these alternatives better for the environment, they have saved me a lot of money (after the initial cost) and I genuinely prefer them.

3 Simple Sustainable Beauty Switches

The Safety Razor

Such an easy switch and yet, you might find yourself quite scared by the blades? Don’t be! I put off buying a safety razor for the longest time, because of this fear. Three years after making the change, I can honestly say: I love my safety razor, and the blades are not difficult to handle or dangerous.

Safety razors are not just safe to use, the shave is superior and the razor gorgeous. You won't have to replace it, which means less packaging and plastic. Plastic that is not easily recyclable.

Face Cloths

A few years ago, I used disposable face wipes all the time. I could not imagine my routine without them. That changed when I invested in a few face cloths. One wash and I was hooked. My face felt cleaner! I cannot imagine going back to disposable wipes as these are great, last for years and are super easy to clean in the washing machine.

Not convinced! A single face wipe takes over a 100 years to degrade! A 100 years! For one face wipe!

Soap Bars

Soap bars are so old school and yet I love them! The bars last longer than liquid soap and will save you a lot of money and the planet a lot of plastic! There are also so many options ranging from luxurious to bargains, wrapped in paper or with no packaging at all!

There you have it. Three really simple switches to a more sustainable beauty routine. Have you made any of these changes?
