A cleanser, a flannel or muslin cloth, and fresh water are the winning combination when it comes to washing your face thoroughly, but there are situations when that isn’t possible — like when you don’t have easy access to clean running water when you’re camping, at a festival, travelling, or in hospital.
On those occasions, you may need to use a cleansing wipe or baby wipe to clean yourself. The good news is, you can minimise the harmful environmental effects of these wipes by opting for those that are eco-friendly.
Biodegradable wipes will help reduce the incredible amount of wipes that are clogging sewers, piling up in landfills, and washing up on beaches around the world, putting marine life at risk. Pick your favourite, then check out more ways to make your beauty routine more eco-friendly. And remember: never flush wipes, even when they’re biodegradable — bin or compost them.
