It’s the most basic – and important! – part of any face care routine.
Removing makeup and impurities is a daily must to prevent clogged pores, dullness and breakouts.
There’s a problem, though: proper cleansing requires fresh cleansing pads. And that means a lot of trash in the waste bin.
Let’s take a look at disposable versus reusable cleansing pads, and see how you can care for your skin, and show some love for the planet too.
Disposable cleansing pads: the good, the bad and the ugly
Disposable cleansing pads are so easy and convenient. Simply use and throw away, right?
A used cleansing pad is full of grime and buildup, and yes, it belongs straight in the bin! While this may be hygienic, it is also bad for the environment.
Every cleansing pad that is thrown away lives on in a landfill, or – even worse – clogs up the waterways or ends up in the ocean.
Plus, disposable cleansing pads constantly add to your skincare bill. You may be purchasing a new pack every month or even every couple of weeks.
Reusable cleansing face pads: good for your skin, the planet and your wallet!
If you are uneasy about the environmental (and money) costs of disposable cleansing pads, the answer is a non-disposable alternative.
A soft fluffy face towel might seem like a good idea, but it would need washing after every use. Not practical at all. The best solution is reusable cleansing pads, and Alma K is on it!
