“Once a year we decide to set everything else aside and celebrate Earth Month, or what we now call Sustainable Beauty Month. It’s a time where we choose to focus on supporting and celebrating our Davines salons that work towards balancing beauty and sustainability”. – Davines
Limit your Shower Time
It’s important to actively watch how much water we use in one day. When it comes to beauty, it’s actually quite easy to use a minimal amount of water. In our experience, it takes no more than a 5 minute shower to properly clean and rinse both your hair and body. It’s even proven to be enough time to shave your legs! While in the shower, cover things like brushing your teeth and cleansing your face. This helps spare the amount of times you turn the sink on and off.
Re-Use your Cosmetic Bottles
A huge part of being sustainable is re-use. Instead of tossing out your empty cosmetic containers and bottles, wash them with a drop of soap and a cup of water. Once they’ve dried, think about refilling them with another cosmetic product or cutting it open for a more mundane use. Filling your containers with things like hair ties, bobby pins, or even better, a plant, is the perfect way to feel like the ultimate conservationist. Among our favorites is the stylish Davines product bottles!
Use Natural Lighting
This is a not-so-obvious tip which is why we love it! Thinking of ways to be sustainable requires thinking outside of the box and paying attention to how we might be wasteful on a daily basis. To conserve more energy, consider moving your vanity or makeup area toward a big window or a space in your home that retrieves a lot of natural light. This will not only give you correct makeup coloring but keep you from absorbing too much electrical energy in the bathroom.
While still growing, the sustainable beauty industry has been so beneficial to our Earth and beauty professionals. We are proud to call ourselves a sustainable beauty and Davines salon.
