8 Eco-friendly Beauty Tips

Eco-friendly Beauty Tips Girly-girls love make-up, but that doesn't mean they can't love Mother Earth, too. There are quite a number of things we can do to help the earth while staying beautiful, and here are a few short tips on what you can do to help the environment:

1 Go for eco-friendly make-up. What's so fabulous about eco-friendly make-up, you ask. Well, just think about it - you want to ensure the blobs you slather onto your face daily come from the earth, and not from some chemical labs, right? Switch to organic skincare and mineral make-up which is made from naturally occurring minerals like iron oxides, titanium dioxide and mica powder, and is less likely to clog your pores.

Colorescience Retractable Foundation Brush SPF 20 California Girl Mineral eco-friendly makeup comes in easy-to-apply powder form which covers blemishes and other pesky skin problems flawlessly, like the refillable Colorescience Retractable Foundation Brush. This is also good news to those with sensitive skin as using powder means you don't have to worry about nasty oils in your makeup or your make-up running - mineral powders stays in place even during the most humid of summer days and is practically water and sweat proof!

2 Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth. For every second you leave the tap running while you brush or wash your face, you're losing up to 10,000 liters of water a year. Use a cup to rinse your mouth after brushing, and a wash cloth to clean away the facial cleansers. Islam places great emphasis on cleanliness but never wasteful. Even to perform wudu', the Prophet (SAAWS) took only a handful of water and rubbed it through his beard to clean himself before prayers besides other cleaning steps. You'll help save a lot more water that way.

3 Finish everything in the bathroom cabinet or on your dressing table before buying new stuffs. I know the temptation is great but think of the money you'll save besides helping Mother Earth. Allah has also exhorted to us not to be wasteful, so make sure you really need it before buying.

LOccitane Pure Organic Shea Butter 4 Buy in refillable containers. Nowadays, shampoos, shower gels and lotions can be purchased in refillable packs and bulk-packs. This is one way to stretch your money during these hard times. It would be great if they come in recyclable or biodegradable materials containers and are organic in nature, such as L'Occitane Pure Organic Shea Butter. It's 100% plant base origin, extracted from wild kernels of Shea tree fruits and is the best natural moisturizer on the planet. Get makeup palettes instead of mono-packs - there'll be more colors to play with. Try to get your hands on cosmetics that come in biodegradable or recyclable materials containers.

Metropolis Technology ZIon Zirconia Dryer 5 Switch off electrical units when not in use. Unplug your hair dryers, curlers, irons, face steamers, shavers or any electrical item whenever they are not in use to avoid electricity wastage.

6 Limit shower times and reduce the water level in the bath by two inches whenever you soak. You'll be surprised how much water that saves.

7 Ditch disposables. According to the Environment Protection Agency, more then 2 billion disposable razors wind up in the landfills every year. So, do your bit to minimize on the impact by choosing a razor that allows you to change the blades or invest in an electrical razor or painless hair remover like the Emjoi Divine below.

Emjoi Divine 8 Dispose expired or unwanted cosmetic cream and lotions into sand or cat litter, which will absorb the liquid. Toss the empty container in recycle bins instead of rubbish dumps, which may inadvertently end up in the ocean, and cause harm to sea-life.

In addition to the steps above, you'll discover that one of the easiest and most rewarding ways to go green, help you save tons and benefit your hair and skin is to indulge in easy home facial masks and hair remedies using all-natural ingredients from your pantry, refrigerator or kitchen. Look-out for our Do-It-Yourself Beauty Ideas for money-saving recipes, and Mother Earth will love you for your initiative.
