Plastic Free Skin Care Products

Most skin care companies would like you to believe that you need a million different products to take care of your skin. They make us feel like we need a special cleansers, toners, and moisturizers. Oh, and don’t forget that $50 eye cream. Many of these products are filled with nasty chemicals that pollute our bodies and get into our water systems. Not only do these products clutter our bathrooms cabinets, but they also clutter out landfills and oceans when we toss them aside. Many of these products are heavily packages as well and are rarely recyclable. Here I will show you what I use to keep my skin clear and fresh. I absolutely love all these products, they are simple to use and great for your skin.

Face Wash: DIY Face wash (not shown)

  • Price: $2 - $5

  • Packaging: repurposed plastic bottle

  • All natural, homemade, self-designed

  • Ingredients: distilled water, jojoba oil, essential oil

Spot Treatment: Tea Tree Oil

  • Price: $3 - $5

  • Packaging: glass

  • All natural

  • Ingredients: 100% tea tree oil

  • I use tea tree oil as a spot treatment whenever a pimple decides to pop up. Tea Tree oil is a great thing to have because it can be used to many different holistic treatments like disinfecting cuts and treating burns. A 1 oz bottle will last you a very long time, and when you finally run out you can recycle the bottle.

Face Mask: Not A Spot

  • Price: $24

  • This product is not necessary, but it is nice to have when you feel like treating yourself to a stress free self-care day.

These are just the products that I have come across during my zero waste journey and am currently using. There are so many other amazing natural and plastic free products out there as well, and this is just what works for me. There are products ranging from all prices. Feel free to explore your options.
