The latest trend is that of going green. Green simply means being environmentally friendly and being aware of what you are buying and using for yourself and those around you. Each of us can do something to help our planet. Here are a few ways your make up and beauty routine can create a green environment.
1. Use refills on loose powder and other cosmetics if you plan to reuse them.
2. Use cloth instead of paper towels as much as possible to clean your face.
3. Choose a cosmetic line that has minimal packaging.
4. Wash your makeup tools with a mild cleanser that is free of chemicals.
When you use cosmetics or skincare try to use organic products. They are healthier to use and their vitamins have many benefits on your skin.
For example use products that have Green tea leaf extract which promotes good health and longevity. Maybe you can buy a lip liner or eye pencils that have some formulations like green tea extract, lecithin, shea butter, aloe vera, jojoba oil, wheat germ oil and safflower seed oil. All these ingredients promote well being. Grape seed extracts are set of biflavonoid complexes that perform as free radical scavengers in the body. Free radicals are destructive chemicals that damage our cells and are responsible to many diseases. Antioxidants deactivate free radicals therefore by absorbing antioxidants and supplements into the body we can minimize free radical damage.
Clinical studies reveal that vitamins and antioxidants added to cosmetic products help keep the delicate skin soft and smooth.
