Feeling and looking good shouldn`t be hard for you and harsh on the planet
We all want to look and feel our best, but at what cost are our beauty products negatively impacting our health and the health of the planet? Here at Oh My Garden!, we believe you shouldn’t have to choose between looking great, being healthy, and living a sustainable lifestyle. Check out our top 5 tips on how to look and feel your best, sustainably:
1. Flush out those toxins (with a reusable bottle)
Water is your number one ally when it comes to looking and feeling your best. Drinking water helps flush out toxins from your system and restore your skin’s natural moisture barrier, reducing acne, skin sensitivity, and dryness. Dehydration can also cause headaches and muscle fatigue, resulting in a loss of energy. Grab your favourite reusable water bottle (stay far away from one-use plastic bottles) and drink up! Your skin and body will thank you.
2. You are what you eat
If you want to look and feel your best, fuel your body with the best! What we eat plays a major role in our energy levels, body function, and skin. Choosing whole foods that are fresh and rich in nutrients will help you look as healthy on the outside as you are on the inside. On the other hand, excessive sugars, salts, and fats will have the opposite effect. Choosing to buy fresh foods as opposed to take-out and junk food will reduce your level of waste from packaging, keeping you and the planet healthy!
Pro tip: for extra sustainability, use reusable produce and shopping bags!
3. Take your bike instead of your car
You already know exercise can improve the overall health and functionality of your body, but did you know it can also benefit your skin? By increasing your heart rate, you increase the blood flow throughout your body and deliver more oxygen and nutrients to your skin. More nutrients/oxygen = healthier-looking skin! To reduce your environmental impact and get in a great workout, try riding your bike instead of driving your car. More exercise + less pollution = a win-win!
4. Respect your self-care routine
We know life gets busy. With a million things on the go, it can be hard to remember to make time for yourself. Dedicating a portion of your day (even a small portion) can work wonders for how you look and feel. A self-care routine doesn’t have to be an hour-long process. For all our busy bees, try dedicating five minutes to cleansing your skin while making sure you’re using the right products. The right products will enhance your skin while using less of the product, allowing you to reduce your level of waste.
5. Celebrate your progress!
You’ve already made an amazing first step towards doing right by yourself and by the planet! By taking the time to look for eco-conscious, healthy tips and tricks, you are on your way to living a healthier, more beautiful, and more sustainable lifestyle. Take time to appreciate your small wins, such as watching your plants grow, drinking more water, or choosing to ride your bike to work. Living a healthier and eco-friendlier lifestyle is a choice, and it’s a choice you should be proud to be making. Your skin, body, and planet will thank you.
