Beauty products are one of the world’s biggest industries. In fact, $532 billion a year is spent on beauty products.
This would be fine if it didn’t come at an enormous cost to the planet. But it does.
This is why more and more of us are starting to make beauty products at home for ourselves. When you know all the ingredients are natural and kind to your body, you can be sure they’re also kind to the planet.
To get you started on this why not check out the picks for the best DIY beauty products blogs from our panel of professional aestheticians.
