Have you ever thought about how many beauty products you use every day?
Just this week as I went through my usual week day morning routine, I started to count.
Jump into the shower …
- Body wash/soap
- Face cleanser
- Face scrub
- Shaving cream
Out of shower…
- Face moisturiser
- Body moisturiser
Then the make-up (and my routine isn’t complex)
- Lip balm
Then the hair…
- Hair oil or straightening cream
Before I leave home I have also most likely used…
- Kitchen soap
- Hand cream
And this is the basics. Many of us have extra creams, lotions and potions that we like to use. Maybe not every day but a few times a week. And this is just the morning.
So my morning total is about 20. What’s yours?
Now think about all the ingredients in these products. Have you even looked at the ingredients lists? We usually don’t. Just like food.
My take-away for today…. Count how many products you use and start looking at the ingredients.
Do you even know what they are? Can you even pronounce them? I often can’t.
Just start to be more mindful of what you are actually using.
Until next post,
