Spotlight on: Waterless beauty

·2-min read
Keys Soulcare

Many of us are actively taking steps to use and buy eco-friendly products.

But just as we cut back on plastic and opt for items made with sustainable ingredients, it's important to consider ways to update our beauty cabinets too. One option is to opt for waterless products.

These formulas tend to have a longer shelf life, reduce water consumption, are lighter weight and require less fuel to transport them, and usually don't require plastic packaging.

Read on for a round-up of three great options to check out right now.

Keys Soulcare's Be Luminous Exfoliator

Suitable for normal, dry, and oily skin types, this powder is formulated with Hojicha powder, lactic acid, mung beans, and oats. Activated by a few drops of water, this powder transforms into a foam that gently buffs away dead skin cells and helps to promote a softer, smoother skin texture. If it's good enough for Alicia Keys, it's good enough for us!

Tatcha's The Rice Polish: Calming Foaming Enzyme Powder

Formulated with finely ground rice bran and a unique trio of fermented Japanese superfoods - green tea, rice and algae - this product promises to transform dry or dull skin in mere moments. Take half a teaspoon of the powder, rub together in the hands with a little water, and gently massage it onto the face for around 15 seconds before rinsing off and continuing with your usual skincare routine.

Naturopathica's Watercress & Spirulina Detox Mask

Made with purifying watercress and antioxidant-rich spirulina, this face mask warms on contact to draw out impurities and unclog pores. Perfect for oily and blemish-prone skin types, this mask can be customised depending on your skin's needs. To activate the powder, mix one teaspoon with the same amount of water, combine until dissolved and apply. For a foamy, more mousse-like mask, add slightly more water. It's like a green smoothie for your face!
