Description

Sustainable Beauty is an inspirational and practical guide to living a more eco-friendly lifestyle and maintaining a low-waste beauty routine.

Vegan, cruelty-free, ‘clean’, organic, non-GM, zero-waste, not to mention palm oil, silicones and micro-plastics – where do you start when it comes to creating an eco-friendly beauty routine? There are thousands of products claiming to be better for the environment and your skin, but they also come with a hefty price tag. So what can we actually do to make a difference? This book provides the small steps everyone can take to make a big difference at home.

Justine Jenkins, an holistic and sustainable make-up artist & consultant, guides you through – breaking down the issues and explaining how we can mitigate them at home. With easy tutorials to follow – from simplifying your beauty routine and product label literacy through to recipes for DIY hydrating serums and superfood face masks – Jenkins shows you how small changes in habit can result in a more sustainable, eco-friendly beauty routine that doesn't break the bank.
