Earth Day, April 22, is a time to consider the impact we have on the environment — and do something about it. Show Mother Nature some love and plant trees, cut down energy usage (unplug electronics when not using them) and consider making beauty routines more eco-friendly with natural and organic products.
Our beauty routines may not be the first thing that comes to mind for Earth Day but they’re an important consideration. After all, every little bit helps. What’s more, there are a number of easy changes we can do to cut down our beauty environmental footprints, from reducing the amount of long, hot showers we take to actually recycling our product empties to choosing green beauty products.
Green beauty has come a long way in recent years. The best natural makeup and skin care products have formulas that are as good as — if not better than — traditional products. Because the formulas are made with plant-based ingredients, they’re kinder to skin, meaning less chance of negative reactions. Green beauty isn’t a trend, it’s a lifestyle choice that can help the environment and our skin.
Ahead, shop the best organic makeup and natural beauty products that have earned gold (or should we say green) stars for 2018.
