Living at 8,750 feet in a dry climate, I am constantly looking for better and more powerful skincare. I am guilty of keeping a medicine cabinet full of moisturizing and anti-aging potions and tinctures – most of which are packaged in plastic.
You can make your own products, as we mentioned in an earlier post. But according to Discovery Health, products are only one of a myriad of ways to nourish and protect your skin. And the other methods can be plastic-free!
Here are some ways to revitalize your skin from the inside out:
2. Sleep well
- fish (omega-3 fatty acids)
- citrus fruits (vitamin C)
- red and green vegetables (vitamin A, beta-carotene)
- nuts (vitamin E)
- whole grains (rutin and vitamin B)
And you can also feel more conscientious about your existing plastic caps. Aveda‘s cap recycling program is one of the first I’ve seen. Get your local school involved today!
