Nowadays there is a lot of talk about the ecology of different products. Green washing takes place a lot and it can be difficult to know how to choose more environmentally friendly cosmetic products. We wanted to share with you five tips to help you make better choices for yourself and the environment.
1) Use less
Often, we will use way more products than we actually would need. Pay attention to your skin care routine and be more aware of it. Cosmetics marketing allows you to easily understand that you need a huge arsenal of different products in order to keep your skin looking good. In reality, however, the skin can do a lot of things itself and we do a great service to it and avoid problems if we do not interfere with the skin's natural balance with our own mistakes.
We often say it is worth buying less, but better.
This can also be taken into account products that come in a very condenced form such as shampoo bars, balms or detergent concentrates.
When you learn to buy products that are fully suited to your skin's needs, you already significantly reduce the amount of money you spend on cosmetics and the amount of products you buy. You do not need to be an expert in skin biology, but understanding the basic principles of skin function will help you make factual choices about your skin care. Without understanding your own skin, it is almost impossible for you to choose the right products for you. That is exactly what we teach you inMySkincareCoach online course.
Reading the ingredient list of the product is the only way to ensure that you get what you are being advertised. Although this may seem exhausting, it is not nearly as difficult as one might imagine. For example, in MySkincareCoach online course, we go through easy and practical tips that will help you de-code the product ingredient lists so that you can distinguish the good products from the bad and from those who don't really do what they promise.
4) Avoid produts that overload your body and the environment
Today better and more responsive alternatives for ingredients are available than what is used in traditional cosmetics. For example, in many studies, chemical sunscreens have been found to interfere with aquatic organisms in many different ways. Problems often also go up the food chain and ingredients such as microplastics and chemical sunscreens contaminate the very food we eat.
This is often overlooked in cosmetics. Cosmetics packaging can and should be recycled! We can significantly reduce the amount of waste by paying attention to recycling. So recycle glass, plastic, and paper and favor packaging that is 100% biodegradable!
