10 ways to Green Your Personal Care
From deodorant to facial cleansers to mouthwash, your personal care arsenal often contains a slew of harmful chemicals that not only compromise human health but damage the environment as well. Stay beautiful without the ugly eco-side effects using these green alternatives.
Opt for preservative-, detergent-, and animal byproduct-free soaps that rank high on both the clean and green scales.
Why wash away dirt and grime with synthetic chemicals? Choose a face wash made from skin- and earth-friendly ingredients.
Choose a shampoo that substitutes eco-unfriendly ingredients with natural extracts, oils, and essences. Even better, opt for one that's also cruelty-free and organic.
Chances are your hair dye contains polluting peroxides, ammonia, and other harmful chemicals. Color your hair green (not literally, of course) by using natural alternatives.
Going green when it comes to nail polish doesn’t necessarily mean painting your nails an unbecoming shade of emerald. Opt for a polish made with eco-friendly ingredients instead.
Using tan-in-a-can instead of the sun will save your skin. Take it up a notch and use a natural sunless tanner to keep unnecessary chemicals out of the environment and your body.
Try this effective way to keep unwelcome odors at bay while avoiding the excessive packaging and harmful chemicals found in stick and spray deodorants.
Green toothbrushes will clean and buff your teeth just as well as conventional brushes, but with less waste and fewer resources used. That's something to smile about.
Disposable razors account for a significant pile of waste. The next time you say goodbye to stubble, say hello to an electric model, a razor with reusable/recycled parts, or a straight razor.
Choose nontoxic alternatives to chemical bug sprays that contain ingredients like DEET or permethrin.
