Sustainable Fashion Champion, Blogger, & Content Creator; Let's Talk Slow founder Stephanie Van Den Stigtenhorst speaks on how to make sustainable change, her favourite sustainable beauty products & what beauty means to her.
I basically started my conscious journey with slow fashion or sustainable fashion. It was as I was learning more about this that I really started to understand more about the impact modern living was having on the environment. From there I became interested in the benefits of plant-based food and have since developed a plant-based diet. I am big into recycling everything, and now I am exploring my natural beauty routine! This can all seem a little overwhelming which is why I did it one step at a time, because it is too hard to change it all at once.
When you are trying to live more sustainably I think the most important thing to do is to ask if you really need the product, and WHY you want to get that product.
That is why one of my favorite products is the Activator 7 Oil from Sans [ceuticals], just because you can use it in so many ways! It is multifunctional and allows me to not only live more sustainably but also to keep my beauty routine easy & simple. I also really love the EcoTan Face Tan Water which can replace both foundation & concealer and makes you look & feel like you’ve been on holiday!
Beauty to me is embracing your flaws, I think when you can do that then there can be beauty in everything.
