BECOMING A BETTER VERSION OF YOU
As we move rapidly into 2024, we can start to see the beauty industry making a big shift in becoming more sustainable.
But with the shift in the industry, starting a new year can also be a push to become a better version of yourself, whether that be choosing more sustainable beauty brands, or switching to a greener routine.
Our blog explores ways to become more eco-friendly and a better you in 2024!

THE IMPACT OF CHOOSING SUSTAINABLE
Opting for sustainable health and beauty products plays a crucial role in addressing broader environmental and ethical issues. By choosing more eco-friendly options, you’re actively reducing the demand for harmful chemicals and plastics that harm wildlife and pollute the environment.
Sustainable brands often ensure that all their ingredients are obtained in an eco-conscious way by following ethical sourcing practices. Making sure to support companies that prioritise sustainability helps to encourage the wider beauty industry to shift towards more responsible production methods.
Each sustainable beauty choice you make is a step towards a healthier planet and a more ethical society!
TIPS FOR A MORE SUSTAINABLE APPROACH
It may seem daunting switching your routine to be more sustainable, but doing it one step at a time makes it so much easier!
Here are some tips to start your sustainable beauty routine:
- Simplify your routine - A beauty routine doesn’t need to be complicated. Choosing fewer, multi-purposed products can not only help simplify your routine, but it can also help to reduce waste and clutter.
- Mindful packaging - Packaging plays a huge role in being environmentally conscious. Try to opt for recyclable or biodegradable packaging, and even consider refillable options.
- Conserve water - Using water-efficient products such as bar shampoos or conditioners can help to reduce the amount of water used in your routine.
- Check the ingredients - Making sure to read the product labels carefully is very important to check what is actually in the products you’re using. Try to buy products that are made from natural and organic ingredients over synthetic chemicals.
