As winter is approaching and the weather is getting colder, there are certain products that we start using with the changing season. But have you thought about how the switches you make can be more eco-friendly? Many of the things we use in winter also have zero waste alternatives that are worth trying!
Avoiding Dry Skin
Dry skin is especially common in the winter months; when the humidity level outside drops, the water in our skin evaporates more quickly resulting in skin that feels dry and tight. It is important to moisturise to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. You can do so with the Bobone moisturising face cream, it is ideal for dry and sensitive skin and will nourish your skin beautifully. And to avoid cracked lips, the Bobone lip balm is the perfectly solution. It is extremely nourishing and very gentle on the lips. You can also prevent further drying out of your skin by washing your hands with this handmade soap that is especially for dry skin. To make it even better, all of these products are not only effective but also 100% natural and eco-friendly.
