Beauty, especially for women is a top priority. Even those with the urge to be eco-friendly, sometimes find it hard to sacrifice their beauty products and routine for the environment. Feeling and looking our best is important to people and sometimes we are willing to sacrifice the greater good of the environment to meet our own needs. With these 5 eco-friendly alternatives, you will no longer have to feel guilty for wanting to look beautiful!
Make Your Own Products
We live in a DIY culture and with the internet at your fingertips, there are plenty of resources and recipes for making your own products. Try lemon juice and water instead of CFC producing hair spray cans and try some sugar, coconut oil and lavender scent to make your very own body scrub. You won’t have to throw away plastic containers, support animal testing or use chemicals.
Buy Clothes at Thrift Shops
Our clothes play a huge role in how we feel about ourselves. Instead of spending a large chunk of your income on clothes, shoes and accessories that require the use of new resources to be made, head down to your local thrift shop. Get creative, be innovative and have fun finding cheap treasures that you can curate into unique and fashionable outfits.
Forget expensive gym memberships! Instead of supporting facilities who are constantly running electricity, take your jogging outside. Use household furniture for arm lifts, natural hills for walking and a yoga mat in the grass for stretches.
Eat Produce From The Farmer’s Market
Nothing is bound to make you feel and look more beautiful than loading up on healthy fruits and vegetables. Head to the nearest farmer’s market and stock up on organic, whole foods that will make you shine from the inside out. You will save money, reduce waste and keep your body looking its best!
