Chapter 2: Sustainable Beauty: Radiate Your Inner Glow Responsibly


Beauty, they say, lies in the eyes of the beholder, but there's undeniable beauty in adopting a sustainable beauty routine. From natural ingredients to more conscious consumerism, taking some extra time to care for yourself is an invaluable step on the journey of self-love.


18 Eco-Friendly Beauty Tips for Sustainable and Green Living


      1. Donate unwanted products to charities like Beauty Banks
      2. Zero-Waste Makeup Remover: Instead of using disposable makeup wipes or single-use cotton pads, opt for reusable makeup remover pads or cloths made from sustainable materials like organic cotton or bamboo. These alternatives are gentle on your skin and can be easily washed and reused, significantly reducing waste.
      3. Go makeup-free more often: This may also prove beneficial for your self-perception and confidence.
      4. Limit the amount of water you use to brush your teeth.
      5. Eco-Friendly Nail Care: Switch to non-toxic and eco-friendly nail polishes that are free from harmful chemicals like formaldehyde, toluene, and phthalates. Additionally, opt for nail polish removers that are acetone-free and biodegradable.
      6. DIY Beauty Products: Explore do-it-yourself (DIY) beauty recipes using natural and simple ingredients found in your kitchen or garden. Making your own beauty products, such as face masks, scrubs, and hair treatments, allows you to avoid harmful chemicals and reduce packaging waste.
      7. Don’t leave the water running when cleaning your face
      8. Sustainable Packaging Brands: Look for beauty brands that prioritise sustainable packaging, such as using recyclable materials, refillable containers, or minimalistic packaging to reduce waste. For example, our Nova Toiletry Bag here at Paguro Upcycle. Supporting these brands encourages the beauty industry to adopt more eco-friendly practices.
      9. Read labels for toxic and harmful chemicals. Opt for natural products.
      10. Waterless Beauty Products: Consider waterless beauty products like solid shampoos, conditioners, and facial cleansers. Waterless formulas reduce the need for preservatives, save energy in production, and reduce the weight and size of products during transportation.
      11. Share products with your housemates, e.g. shampoo, toothpaste etc.
      12. Biodegradable Glitter: Traditional glitter is typically made from micro-plastics, which are harmful to the environment. Choose biodegradable glitter made from plant-based or natural materials to add sparkle to your looks without contributing to plastic pollution.
      13. Buy bigger bottles less often, as opposed to smaller bottles more often
      14. Sustainable period products: Consider switching to reusable menstrual products like menstrual cups, cloth pads, or period underwear. These alternatives create less waste compared to disposable pads and tampons.
      15. Sustainable Perfumes: Conventional perfumes often contain synthetic ingredients and come in non-recyclable packaging. Choose natural and sustainable perfume brands that use ethically sourced ingredients and eco-conscious packaging.
      16. Reusable Razors and Blades: Replace disposable razors with reusable safety razors that are made of stainless steel or bamboo. Not only do they provide a closer shave, but they also generate less waste and are more cost-effective in the long run.
      17. Sustainable Brushes: Invest in makeup brushes made from eco-friendly materials such as bamboo, recycled plastic, or cruelty-free synthetic bristles. These brushes are durable, perform well, and are a planet-friendly alternative to conventional brushes.
      18. Sustainable Hair Accessories: Look for hair accessories made from sustainable materials like biodegradable resin, wood, or recycled metals. Opt for organic cotton hairbands or scrunchies instead of those made from synthetic materials.
