Sustainable personal care and hygiene
After several weeks at home, we have dared to change some routines of our day to day that we knew were healthier for us but we were not doing because of laziness.
We have dared to consume more natural products that we have on hand to create masks, scrubs and even toothpaste. The result, in many cases, is general well-being.
It has been easy for us to become familiar with natural products. Creams, tonics, serums or masks that will take care of our skin with more care than any other product that includes chemical additives. One of the brands that has caught our attention the most and that shares our philosophy of the 3 R's (reduce, recycle and reuse) is Affya. Its products are completely organic, vegan and natural and in fact, they have the EcoCert Cosmos Organic certification that accredits it. This guarantees that in addition to achieving greater effectiveness with these cosmetics, you will be sure that they have been prepared with the appropriate sanitary measures.
We love that they use recyclable glass and bamboo packaging. This means that their products are ecofriendly, but in addition, they are containers that can be reused to put flowers or add small decorative details in the bathroom once the product is finished.
This proposal to reuse their packaging in great. For example, they propose us to give a second life to your container as a pot. With a little soil and some seeds, we will be able to see small plants grow in their cans of creams and masks. To reuse the elongated ones give us another idea that we love: Using them to put a bamboo or any flower that makes you feel special!
We also like that its organic and natural ingredients are all vegan. Among them are aloe vera, with its regenerative properties; chamomile, which calms the skin; baobab oil, with calming effects and ylang-ylang flower, with antiseborrheic properties. The absence of chemicals in its composition help to recover the natural state of the skin.
These days we have also discovered a technique with which to better spread the cream in the area around the eyes. With the help of our bamboo sticks, we can better distribute the product while we massage in this area. If during the application of the product we make small circles, we will help delay the appearance of wrinkles and the skin will remain smooth for a longer time. In addition, it leaves a very pleasant sensation on the skin, which remains relaxed after that little massage. We recommend you try it!
Another essential element for our personal care that should never be missing in our bathroom are the bamboo toothbrushes, he floss or organic cotton discs. The former will help us to maintain proper dental hygiene and to naturally whiten our teeth and, cotton, to distribute make-up removal products on our skin and remove impurities.
Let's be more brands that we join these great changes, we begin to believe that small details such as replacing a bottle plastic by a thermos or not having to use the straws common but we always have ours made of bamboo, will give more benefit to our planet.
Remember that it is the little details that make a BIG difference.
Your 5-minute routine can go from ordinary to extraordinary.
