Sustainability, Affordability and Staying Beautiful in 2012

Yamerra Friends,

We ponder if this is possible in 2012: "Remaining frugal, while still living sustainably, Eco-consciously and looking stunning while you are at it."

We believe it totally is! We advise the following:

1. Use as many natural ingredients in your home beauty regimen as possible. Some of us will still want that special brand name lipstick we can wear every day, others will want that facial at the Spa. If you are to splurge, plan, prepare for it. An example of a natural skincare regimen that can be easily adopted is using fresh fruits to make facials, or even raw egg whites that we discussed a few weeks back. You can use natural ingredients like Avocado, Oatmeal, Almond Oil and Mint too based on your skin’s condition, a signature face mask should be blended up and applied on the spot.

 Making your own natural remedies is a SUSTAINABLE Beauty habit.

2. Take your shoes to the Cobbler! I know this sounds like an ancient idea, and not many of us do it, but I promise it is a more sustainable practice than buying a new pair of shoes ever so frequently. Get those stunning pumps you like to wear all the time to the shoe shop to get cleaned, shined, re-heeled. Shoe maintenance as opposed to buying another new pair every time we have a special event to attend can save us quiet a lot of money throughout the year.

Maintaining your shoes, getting them cleaned,  re-heeled, re-vamped is SUSTAINABLE!

3. Buy Green. Give Green. Yes. I know people hear green and we all of a sudden equate it to being ultra expensive. This is not always the case. However, if it is and you are to give anyway, go for a sustainable Eco-Conscious gift. For example, you may want to save and splurge on a really amazing formaldehyde-free nail polish for your bestie on her birthday. Do not buy the cheap polish that contains toxins just because you are trying to save. You will be causing more damage and ultimately spending more (on health issues) in the end.  You could also search for Eco-friendly products. Yamerra makes for a luxurious, yet affordable earth-friendly gift. Encourage others in your circle of trust to live sustainably and remain beautiful and fashionable by giving Eco-friendly gifts.
