Five Ways to Refresh Your Beauty Routine

As the health of our planet looms large in the collective consciousness, it’s natural to focus more on the impact of our daily rituals.

From refillable cult favourites to skin-loving ingredient profiles, we’re spotlighting five ways to refresh beauty routine, with a focus on brands seeking to lift the standard of beauty.

Invest in refillable skincare

Alleviate the guilt that comes with ‘hitting pan’ on your favourite products with refillable packaging. A host of luxury beauty brands are joining the movement to repurpose old packaging with refillable solutions, from shampoo pouches to moisturiser pods.

Switch to certified organic ingredients

Do your skin a favour by making the switch to certified organic skincare ingredients. Certified organic ingredients are clear of harmful chemicals, making them best for the health and vitality of your skin.

Consider where packaging comes from

Many beauty brands have now partnered with TerraCycle, a global recycling program, to ensure their packaging is repurposed at the end of its life. Brands like Vapour Beauty are also making the switch to Post Consumer Recycled (PCR) packaging for a range of their products, solidifying their commitment to a circular beauty industry. PCR is made from items that consumers recycle every day – think aluminium, cardboard boxes, paper and plastic bottles.

Don’t overlook your haircare regimen

Aveda has long been an advocate for haircare ingredients free from silicones, parabens and other unsafe chemicals. Their clever products are proof of the power of nature, made from certified-organic, plant-derived ingredients designed to nourish your hair and enhance your daily ritual.

Embrace brands that give back

Adopt a beauty routine that gives back to the environment. Australian brand U Beauty’s efforts extend beyond consciously created packaging and ingredients to their partnership with One Tree Planted, a non-profit dedicated to reforestation. For every U Beauty product purchased, the brand is committed to planting one tree.
