The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Keeping Skincare Environmentally Friendly

Brought to you by Project Byouty!

Words like eco-friendly, sustainable, clean, conscious, amongst others, can be rather overwhelming for the average consumer, especially when they are terms thrown around in the industries we consume from the most: fashion, food and beauty. In an over-saturated market selling us thousands of products to match our ever-growing insecurities, it's high time we strip all the layers back and take a “less is more” approach to self-care and skin care.

When you’re applying anything to your skin, be it makeup or a new serum, by using cruelty free, vegan, sustainable, halal and organic products, you’re not only taking care of your skin but also the environment! So where does one build a simple beauty regime that doesn’t take up too much time? Well, the only platform worth looking to that is not only inclusive and informative about utilizing cruelty free skin and body care, is Project bYouty.

Just because it is a site that promotes a mindful approach to beauty, it doesn’t mean your favorite brands, including Augustinus Bader, Bolt and Votary, are not available. Very much the opposite, each brand is certified to be cruelty free which makes picking your skincare MUCH easier. We’ve compiled a simple routine using products from Project bYouty so that you don’t have to think too hard about where to get your next batch of skincare from and how to use it, because this is the lazy girl’s guide to keeping it clean (there are products to suit every skin concern and budget too!)
