(Self-) Love is in the Air: Beauty Essentials for the Perfect Valentine’s Day

(Self-) Love is in the Air: Beauty Essentials for the Perfect Valentine’s Day

A wise woman once wrote that ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’, and she was right. But, when we catch a glimpse of ourselves in the mirror as we rush to work in the morning, we rarely get a chance to check if we’ve brushed our hair, let alone admire our appearances! More often than not, with busy schedules ruling our lives, we are left feeling burnt out and frazzled instead of beautiful.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, the pressure to conform to modern-day beauty norms is heightened by the beauty industry. You heard that right! Studies show that the industry that’s supposed to empower us is actually damaging our self-esteem with its ‘unrealistic standards’. Many of us report feeling pressured to buy expensive beauty products that are unsustainable and unethical, simply to feel as though we are fitting in.

So, what’s the solution to such a widespread problem? How can you avoid the unsustainable beauty products that you find on the high street? And how can you find time to feel really and truly beautiful?

Here at Sustainable Mode, we encourage a slower, gentler and more natural approach to beauty. We understand the importance of establishing a healthy, realistic self-care regimen which uses organic, locally-sourced products that make you feel rejuvenated without breaking the bank. Whether you have one hour or one evening for your “me” time, Sustainable Mode has the beauty essentials you need to feel great this Valentine’s Day.
