It’s becoming more and more obvious that we need to do our bit for the environment, including us skincare enthusiasts. And it doesn’t involve throwing out everything you currently own, that wouldn’t be very eco-friendly of us. With just a few tips and tricks, you can work your way towards an eco-friendlier skincare routine. Remember, anything that’s kinder to the environment is going to be kinder on your skin. It’s a win-win.
Choose a Cleansing Balm Over a Face Wash for Longevity
When thinking about how we can make our skincare routine more conscious, we want to minimise the number of skincare products we buy. The more we buy, the more packaging goes to waste. Cleansing Balms tend to last longer than face washes as a little goes a long way with their creamy, oil-based formulas that spread across the skin like butter.
Cleansing Balm 50G - £24.00
Lifting impurities and makeup from the skin with just a pea-sized amount, our Cleansing Balm is the perfect addition to your eco-friendly skincare routine. Formulated with pure essential oils, organic (!!!) plant extracts, and vitamin E, consider weakened skin barriers and dryness fixed.
Commit To Your Skincare Products Before Deciding They Don’t Work
Most skincare products don’t come with an instant payoff. To see a real difference in your skin, you need to commit to using them for 4-6 weeks. It’s also in the best interest of your skin as constantly switching skincare products can cause irritation and/or breakouts.
So, before you toss out any skincare product, make sure you’ve given them a real shot. And before you even do that, see if you can give it to a boyfriend that refuses to buy skincare himself, a sister that’s been eyeing it up since you bought it, or find a skincare bank where you can donate it. What’s that saying again? One woman’s trash is another woman’s skin saviour? Yup, that’s definitely it.
Use Facial Tools to Replace Some of Your Skincare Products
Instead of buying separate skincare products that individually target skin concerns, try incorporating facial tools into your skincare routine that covers multiple at the same time. Just think of all that packaging you’ll save…
Gua Sha In Rose Quartz - £21.00
Only requiring a pump or two of a serum to ease friction, our Gua Sha gets to work on reducing puffiness, tightening the skin, inducing collagen production, and increasing blood flow for a brighter complexion.
There Are Collagen Alternatives Out There
Pseudo collagen is the most environmentally friendly form of collagen as it’s 100% naturally produced from yeast cells to recreate the effects of collagen with a mixture of sugars and proteins. Many people aren’t aware that the majority of collagen is actually found in the connective tissues of animals combined with additional manmade ingredients that may be harmful to the environment. For a more conscious and vegan skincare routine for extra points, we recommend switching to pseudo collagen.
Walnut Oil Serum - £32.00
Targeting fine lines and wrinkles, our Walnut Oil Serum is loaded with pseudo collagen and other anti-ageing ingredients including spilanthes extract, pumpkin and red raspberry seeds, and macadamia oil to firm and rejuvenate the skin.
Walnut Oil Cream 60ML - £32.00
Double up on pseudo collagen with Tutti London Walnut Oil Cream. The mega moisturising formula contains spilanthes extract, macadamia oil, and red raspberry and pumpkin seeds to prevent and soften fine lines and wrinkles.
Organic Face Washcloths FTW
Organic face washcloths have been made with naturally sourced fabric. They’re also a lot softer on the skin, unlike regular face washcloths that are rough and can slowly but surely break down the skin’s barrier. This leaves it exposed to environmental stressors, so switching them out for organic face washcloths is basically essential to take care of your skin.
Made from top-quality organic cotton that has a lower environmental impact, our Muslin Cloths will slot right into your new and improved eco-friendly skincare routine. After you’ve removed our Cleansing Balm from your face with warm water, gently pat dry with our super soft Muslin Cloth. To get the most use out of them, regularly wash them with other whites to save water. Never put on a wash with just a couple of Muslin Cloths in it.
