It will *really* help the environment!

In case you didn’t know – the 5th of June is celebrated as World Environment Day worldwide. And as much as we’d like to think, we’re not doing much for the environment. Our beauty routines are proof. All our cosmetics come in elaborate plastic packaging, sometimes the formulations are toxic (for the environment) and we use copious amount of cotton pads just to ‘wipe off the day!” Imagine the carbon footprint of our collective beauty routines. Thankfully, you don’t have to use disposable cotton pads – when there are so many other, eco friendly ways. Read on to find out.


02/6Biodegradable makeup wipes

Biodegradable makeup wipes

If you’re looking for something disposable, yet eco-friendly that you could on the go, pick biodegradable makeup wipes. These are made up of renewable plant fibres and sustainable wood pulp, gentle cleansers, purified water and skin-loving ingredients such as Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E. Gentle on the environment, merciless on the makeup!


03/6Reusable Makeup Remover Pads

Reusable Makeup Remover Pads

If you like the feel of a cotton pad and want something similar, these may be your best bet! Circular, and soft to touch, they’re pretty much like your regular cotton pads , except that they’re gentler and don’t end up in the bin right after. Made out soft bamboo fabric, these cotton pads fetch you at least a 1000 uses before you throw them away for good. Impressive, don’t you think?


04/6Cleansing oils

Cleansing oils

Cleansing oils are light blend of oil, that gently break down your makeup, nourish your skin, while not clogging on to your pores- and unlike any other beauty influencer preaching the other way round, they do not need cotton wipes to be wiped off. After massaging your face with a pump of oil and removing the makeup, you can directly clean the face with a cleanser. Easy.


05/6The Makeup Eraser

The Makeup Eraser

This one is gaining more and more popularity by each passing day. It’s handy and effective, so much so that you would quickly trade them away for your regualars. All you need to do is wet this napkin in water and wipes your makeup right off – Yup! You do not need no makeup removers as well. How cool is that!

If you’re a little old school and love a little bit of that in your everyday life, you would love the good old muslin cloth. It’s super gentle on the skin and effectively takes all that makeup.
