The Most Useful Eco Friendly Beauty Tips
- Unable to produce sweat and natural oils like the rest of your epidermis, your lips are much more susceptible to dry, flaky skin. For an all-natural solution, run a toothbrush under warm water and gently run the bristles over your lips to lightly exfoliate. Then slather your lips with an all-natural lip balm or make your own with this homemade recipe.
- Use a natural, scented deodorant: If you have a deodorant that can double as a perfume, you’ll be using less bottles and going just a bit more green! The Healthy Deodorant line from Lavanila has a dozen delightful scents and is made without any kind of sulfates or synthetics.
- Honey is a natural antiseptic, antifungal, and humectant (meaning it will protect your skin’s moisture). Suffer from acne? Make a soothing face mask out of honey and green tea. Coconut oil and sugar make for an exceptional exfoliator for your face and lips. Use lemon juice as a facial toner to get rid of blackheads and tighten your pores. Dab tea tree oil on a nasty zit to dry it up in no time.
- Take a Shorter Shower: It takes energy to heat all the water you use for your shower, not to mention all that water running down the drain. I’m a huge fan of relaxing in a warm shower, but if you cut back on the amount of time you stand there, you’ll still look beautiful and will be taking an easy step to conserve resources. Plus, you’ll have a few more minutes for reading AWS.
- Cook foods in ceramic or glass pans (not metal) and you can lower your oven temperature by 25 degrees. To save water when making coffee or tea, measure out a mugful, then boil the amount you need.
- Cold air, wind and taking your gloves on and off can quickly turn your healthy, summertime nails into dry, brittle claws. Start by pushing back your cuticles with a wood or plastic stick and massage the cuticle area and nails using all-natural almond or jojoba oil. Coconut oil is another clean, green option for great moisture.
