We're definitely lucky to be witnessing an increase in beauty products that are environmentally conscious. People are now swapping out archaic and potentially-harmful routines with new practices that consider wastage, resources, recycling and sustainability.
Here are some quick and simple hacks to make your own beauty routine a little more environmentally friendly.

This one may be a bit tough if you're on the run but, if you have time, air-drying obviously saves a lot of power and energy. Additionally, an air-dried look brings out your hair's natural quirks and curls, which is definitely a plus.

Choose products that are made from 100% recycled plastic
It's no secret that total recycling is the way of the future, but many available products are still created form virgin plastics, subsequently damaging our ecosystems.
That's why we need to continue championing goods that are packaged in completely recyclable materials. The Love Beauty & Planet range, for example, uses bottles that are not only made from 100% recycled plastic, but are also 100% recyclable.

There are a plethora of face-cleansing loofah scrubs that not only allow for a deeper clean but also result in minimal waste. Two birds, one stone.

Being kind to the planet is as easy as conserving water by using a fast-rinse conditioner and being conscious of wash time. Love Beauty & Planet, for example, has
fast-rinse conditioner products available in five different variants.

The turnover rate for plastic toothbrushes can be quite high, particularly if you're a tough brusher like myself. That's why a switch to bamboo and biodegradable toothbrushes is probably the most sustainable option. Both you pearly whites and the planet will have you smiling in the long run.

Similarly, swapping to a safety metal razor rather than buying plastic ones will ultimately reduce your beauty routine waste. Besides, metal razors arguably execute a cleaner finish, so it's a win-win.
These simple swaps will have you feeling groomed and guilt-free. But what do you already do in your general, daily life that helps the environment? Tell us below in 25 words or less, and you could win a luxury eco weekend for you and your mates. That's winning.
