Solid products for face, hair and body are the green choice of 2021, that's why include them in your beauty

July 29 was Earth Overshoot Day, or the Day of the Terrestrial Overcoming, this is the exact day in which we fully consumed the resources produced by planet Earth in the whole year. Now, therefore, we begin to draw on extra resources from the planet, which is why it is important to do something, even in our own small way. We can do this by changing our beauty habits and replacing old self-care products with others that are equally valid, but with a new and still unusual shape for many.

Solid products for face, hair and body are a green beauty alternative that really has many advantages, especially for helping the planet and producing less waste. If until a few years ago their circulation was only limited and there was just a few shampoos, now there are solid products of all types.

The great classic of products without packaging, the solid shampoo

Solid shampoo is perhaps the first solid product we have known and started using. If before, however, the formulations were rather aggressive and not suitable for all types of hair, especially if dry, dehydrated or frizzy, now they really exist for every type of hair.

There are those who shampoo every day and those once a week, but in this way you avoid accumulating the plastic bottles in which it is contained. Solid shampoo, like all other products of this type, do not have an external packaging or, if they do, it is made of paper, often recycled.

The solid conditioner, also convenient to take on the road

Not just shampoo, but also conditioner. The second most famous solid product is in fact the conditioner, which is used as a shampoo. The dough is quickly wet under the jet of water and then passed between the hands, forming a cream to be applied to the hair like a normal conditioner. You can also go directly to the lengths and leave on for the desired time. The combination shampoo and conditioner is also perfect to take on the go because they are less heavy than bottles and above all they are not considered liquid products so they can be easily carried in hand luggage.

Solid face soap, which is not hand soap

Among the new entries of solid products we undoubtedly find the solid face soap cleanser. Attention, it is not like using soap for the hands that, on the contrary, in the long run can create imbalances in the delicate skin of the face. These are real money face soaps designed to be used as cleansers, therefore more delicate and respectful of the skin's PH.

Also in this case there are different types based on the type of skin, from acneic and oily to normal or dry and sensitive. Pay attention to the ingredients, look for products that are as natural as possible but tested, to minimize the risk of allergies.

The solid make-up remover to remove even waterproof make-up

In addition to solid face soap, there is also a solid make-up remover, perfect for removing even the most stubborn makeup, such as waterproof. Often it is a mix of oils and butters that dissolve make-up residues but pay attention to conservation. In fact, they are solid products that must be carefully placed in a small box, for example made of aluminum because, if they come into contact with water, the oils inside turn rancid, causing the product to spoil.

In summer, then, high temperatures tend to melt oils which, at lower temperatures, normally cause the product to solidify. Therefore, putting them in a special container allows you to use the solid make-up remover even in summer: just rub the stick in your hands to warm it or in the case of already dissolved product take a little oil and pass it on the face, then proceed to remove with a cleaner.

Use bar soap instead of liquid soap

The soap, on the other hand, is an excellent alternative to liquid soap, because it is often stored in cardboard packages that can be recycled. In this way, the continuous replacement of plastic bottles containing liquid soap is avoided and at the same time the soap guarantees greater hydration, because it is often richer in emollient active ingredients.

If you really don't like the feeling of soap in your hands and can't do without liquid soap, instead, try to buy soap refills and remember to properly dispose of the plastic pack. If you can, also buy liquid soap holders in glass or ceramic and not in plastic.

The solid shower gel and the solid scrub, to be green even with a quick shower

Even in the shower we can dedicate ourselves to green and conscious cosmetics, abandoning bubble baths in plastic bottles and switching to solid bubble baths. As for the face, being designed for the body, they have different formulations than hand soaps, they are more delicate and with moisturizing and emollient active ingredients. You pass the stick of soap between wet hands or quickly under water, rub it on your hands, body or sponge and wash normally.

There are also solid scrubs and scrubs, based on sugar, salt, oils, butters and moisturizing and exfoliating substances, perfect for a massage in the shower to eliminate dead cells. Also in this case they should not be passed directly under the jet of water but rub the dough directly on the damp skin, continuing to massage with your hands and, after the shower, we must remember to dry the usual scrub to eliminate any residual water.

The solid, moisturizing and nourishing body cream more than the classic one

Finally, the last step of cleansing is given by body hydration, to be carried out while still on wet skin or once out of the shower. Also in this case we can replace the bottles or jars of cream with solid body cream, a valid green alternative. The solid body cream is passed directly in the shower on damp skin if it is in the form of solid oil, so as to make it penetrate the skin better. But now there are also formulations that, in contact with the heat of the skin, melt revealing a moisturizing milk to be spread even on dry skin, to leave it soft and hydrated.
