Creating a simple green beauty routine makes your life a lot easier because you're using less, buying less, and you're surrounded by less.
These five multitasking products are just the trick to helping you simplify your green beauty routine.
Depending on the dry shampoo you use, it can become much more than a dry shampoo, reducing the number of hair products you use and saving you time.
A proper cleansing oil is going to work wonders for your skin. In just a couple of minutes you're doing the work of a cleanser, serum, face oil, and moisturizer.
My favourite is the Leaves of Trees Facial Cleansing Oil because it's a heavenly oil that quality oils, blue tansy extract, and anti inflammatory turmeric.
Bar soap is a universal product that can save you time and products. One bar can be used as a hand soap, body soap, shaving cream, and shampoo.
If you have dry hair, you can also follow your shampoo with a little bit of coconut oil to prevent dehydration.
Skip the harsh scrubs and opt for a gentle, really hydrating scrub. You'll be left with soft and smooth skin that's already hydrated, nixing the need for an extra moisturizer.
I love DIY scrubs made with about 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of coconut oil, plus extras like tea and essential oils. Read this post for a quick look at 7 different body scrubs.
Have you ever wondered why you should use a lip balm, hand cream, foot balm, and body butter? I have, and when it comes down to it, you don't need separate products.
I've been loving the Urban Alchemist Earl Green Body Balm* as a night time lip balm and all over body balm. During the day I use a mixture of shea and cocoa butter that I crafted for one of my Natural November blog posts.
