All the habits that are focused on internal health are meant to be complement for the products we buy. Because beauty and skincare are so personal, it can be difficult to find products that fulfill every requirement we may have. When I'm evaluating products, my priorities are:
- ingredients that are locally/ethically sourced
- packaging that's recyclable, reusable, and/or compostable
- products actually make a noticeable difference for whatever I'm looking to address
Perfect solutions don't exist and sometimes we need to experiment to find what will work best for us, but I always land on products that offer a healthy balance of those criteria. My typical morning routine involves sunscreen and moisturizer. (Yes, even those of us with melanated skin need SPF every. single. day.) Cura offers Anato Ocean Friendly Sunblock which comes in a compostable cardboard tube.
