In this article, I want to show you the best way to start a zero waste skincare routine. You probably realized that rather than trying to replace all of the products in your bathroom, it would be better to minimize products.
Follow these basics rules to reduce the usage of your current skincare products, while caring for your skin:
Don’t wash your skin after a workout or in the morning. Splash your face with warm water. Your skin will be more able to keep its moisture and you’ll save the products.
Don’t exfoliate more than 2x per week. Your skin needs to recover which takes about 48-72 hours.
If you are ready to try zero waste skin care, read on how you can easily replace your beauty products.
Rather than using moisturizer, switch to oil. You can choose from variety of oils: jojoba oil, olive oil, hemp seed oil, coconut oil and shea butter. Find the best one for your skin.
To replace your exfoliant use a clay mask or ground oats. Grounded oats will be perfect for sensitive skin.
If you’re looking for a perfect tonic, try rose water. It is a completely natural product that will rebalance your skin’s natural pH.
Reusable Cotton Rounds
You also can use reusable cotton rounds. There are great to remove makeup from eyes because they are gentle on sensitive skin. Keep in mind that everyone has unique skin needs and what works for one person, might not work for you.
