You may have heard about it, "Slow Living" this is actually a lifestyle. It's all about living more consciously and enjoying the little things in life. We as Nourished can totally identify with this and therefore we are going to tell you more about it.
Slow Living is also on the rise in the beauty world. It is not only about giving yourself time to relax and enjoy, but also about being more conscious about the products you use. It's about creating a ritual that helps you relax and pamper yourself. An important aspect is using sustainable products. But it is also important to be conscious about the amount of products you use and to find ways to reuse or recycle them. We give you three tips on how you can apply Slow Beauty in your daily life.
Who wants skincare products that are mostly water? It's important to prioritize ingredients that are truly effective, right?
Waterless beauty products, which are formulated with cream, wax, or gel bases, are more concentrated and longer-lasting. They come in smaller packages, saving on shipping and packaging costs as water can be heavy. Using waterless beauty products is environmentally friendly, as smaller and more efficient products reduce carbon footprint.
Moreover, water can actually strip moisture from the skin, so it's better to use products where water is not the main ingredient. Water alone cannot dissolve dirt and grease, so a good cleanser is still essential.
+ Biologi, Bf - Restore Face & Body Serum
Biologi's unique extraction process delivers the highest concentrate of active botanical ingredients to your skin. No additives, fragrances, or even water, just plant extracts pure enough to drink (but why waste it!)
+ Nourished Daily, Cleanse Bars

With Slow Beauty comes zero-waste packaging. Using recyclable, biodegradable and reusable packaging are that new go to. These leave the least possible trace on the environment. Not only are they better for the environment, but they also have benefits on our own health and wallet.
By using zero-waste products and packaging, we reduce our impact on the planet and help reduce waste. Although zero-waste beauty products can be more expensive to purchase, they often last longer than conventional beauty products. Because they are more concentrated and require less packaging. So in the long run, you can save money on this. Finally, zero-waste beauty packaging is made from natural and organic materials and does not contain harmful chemicals. Which is also better for our health.

The love for multifunctional beauty products, we at Nourished have had for a while now. And this is also totally in line with the lifestyle of 'Slow Living'.
Is it really necessary to have a blush, lipstick and eyeliner all in the same color? Or to have a skincare routine of 12 steps? After all, that's the average number of skincare products a woman uses. We don't think so. Using products that perform multiple functions at once is really convenient. That way you consume less, reduce your carbon footprint and save money!
