As a working makeup artist, I need to ensure my clients’ skin is in top form before getting them camera ready. To help celebrate Earth Month, I did a little digging to find eco-friendly skin care products that are not only healthy for you and yield results, but are also good for the environment.
The label is important!
When shopping for eco-friendly beauty products, look for ones that are made with all natural and organic ingredients and that are free of environmental pollutants and harsh chemicals. Also remember that what the product is packaged in is just as important. Packaging that is marked as biodegradable or recyclable is a good thing to look for. Read your labels carefully. Do look for products that are free of parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, and DEA and TEA free and make sure that ingredients are not tested on animals. I’ve done some label-checking for you, and here are some great brands to get your eco-friendly beauty routine started!
