5 Sustainable Beauty Tips for Beginners

Creating a sustainable beauty routine doesn't have to be a chore. At the end of the day, we all just want to do our bit of the environment and every small effort can count.

So rather than put pressure on yourself to go from zero to environmental hero in one leaping bound, start with some simple changes that can be easily incorporated into your routine.

Here are five sustainable beauty tips for beginners that can make a difference. And some of them are even a little fun too.

#1 Use a konjac sponge

Konjac sponges are biodegrabable, meaning less waste in your cleansing routine. Simply soak it in water and use with your favourite cleanser to remove makeup and cleanse the skin.

Try: Garnier Organics Konjac Cleansing Sponge

#2 Repurpose your product packaging

Think about whether your empty tubs, tubes and containers can be turned into anything else - like transforming an empty Garnier Fructis Hydrating Aloe Vera Hair Foods into a flower pot. Get creative!


#3 Up-size your beauty products

Bigger sizing will last you longer, creating less waste.

#4 Choose brands with sustainability iniatives in place

By supporting them, you're supporting they're sustainability efforts.

#5 Recycle properly

Make sure to read the recycling labels of your beauty products to ensure you're sorting them into the right bins and removing any labels necessary. And always ensure they're rinsed clean.
