In stride with this month’s inspiration, simplicity, we’ve fallen head-over-heels for the (tiny but mighty!) book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. In this book, Marie decodes the Japanese “art of decluttering,” also known as “KonMari.”
Here at Savor, we believe these “KonMari” principles apply to your beauty bag, as well as your closet! So here are our short and sweet top 3 tips for streamlining your skincare and decluttering your beauty bag:
- Put your hands on each and every one of your beauty products. Open the medicine cabinet and explore the far reaches of your makeup bag to truly get a grasp for what you own. Ask yourself, is this product serving me? Check expiration dates and cross-reference with The Top Ten Toxic Ingredients To Avoid (which you can get by joining our Om Aroma Eco-Chic Beauty Newsletter.) If the product is no longer serving you, get rid of it. Marie advises, “the best criterion for choosing what to keep and what to discard is whether keeping it will make you happy, whether it will bring you joy.”
- Make your beauty products visible and easy to access. By designating a small area to display your regimen, you will be more apt to respect your skin and choose beautiful, organic self-care products.
- Go back to the basics. Skin responds well to a simple and consistent regimine. Check the labels and use brands that are committed to supporting an organic lifestyle free of parabens, formaldehyde, synthetic fragrances, dyes, harsh sulfates and chemical fillers. Choose skincare that you look forward to wearing… Less truly is more!
