If you love skincare as much as I do, I'm sure you are always looking for the next cool thing. Of course, a lot of these 'cool' things are expensive and if you look closely at the labels, they have a lot of ingredients in them that you can't pronounce.
But I say 'No more!'
We're now in an age where we have so much information about our planet and how beauty products affect it so it shouldn't be that difficult to get into an eco-friendly, cruelty-free and sustainable routine.
I think that even a little change can make a difference so even if you change one of your products, it's a stepping stone in the right direction.
So keep reading if you want to make a change in your skin/your life/the planet!

Like I said earlier, most skincare has ingredients that no one can pronounce so this year let's opt for a label we can

Although there are still loads of makeup and skincare brands that do test on animals, there are several like Tarte Cosmetics that are cruelty-free. If you're unsure if a product is cruelty-free then head to this article by Cruelty-Free Kitty who has a list of brands that are kind to animals!
VEGANS: Just remember that cruelty-free doesn't always mean vegan so again check your labels!
Look after your skin without a product
By looking after yourself, you look after your skin. Be sure to drink plenty of water, (8 glasses a day to be precise!) to eat

A master is only as good as her tools, so why not invest in yours? EcoTools are a great company that make brushes from bamboo and therefore are better for the planet than the plastic ones. Even their packaging is eco-friendly and reusable, which makes eco-friendly beauty way easier.
Recycle your empties
A few companies now run recycling schemes with incentives. MAC will give you a free lipstick if you finish 3 products and Kiehl's run a programme that involves and stamp card - almost like getting a free coffee from your local!
