March 20 marks the beginning of Spring, a season of renewal where nature awakens and where most of us appreciate setting up new habits of life , future projects ... But also making room in our spirit and our environment ! This is the perfect opportunity to do a big spring cleaning .
But, how to do a spring cleaning? Empty, clean, organize and rearrange your things. A healthy house, sorted, without superfluous products and without waste.
So, a special Spring routine with BeautyMix, anyone?
Step 1: Sort!
Ask yourself for a moment in front of your cupboards and your drawers, and take stock: "What are the products that I no longer use? What are the products that are expired? Which are those that are bad for my health, that of those around me? and for the planet? Which ones do I want to keep and which ones do I want to give/throw away?"
Asking yourself these questions can also allow you to introspect your consumption. We live in a society of overconsumption where the purchase of products intensively is strongly encouraged by large industries.
Why not refocus on the essentials during this Spring cleaning? Keep only what is important and promise ourselves that from now on, we will not go back.
Sorting is an activity that you can do alone or with your children . It can open their eyes, make them aware of the world in which they live. Teach them why it is essential these days to consume in a reasonable and reasoned, responsible and sustainable way, for themselves and the environment.
BeautyMix help you take the leap. By making your own products, you make sure to manufacture the right quantity for your needs and thus limit waste .
BeautyMix tips : How do I know if my product is expired? A pictogram called "Period After Opening" indicates the validation of your product. Usually this is 6 or 12 months. In home cosmetics or when purchasing your products, remember to note the date on which you opened your product in order to know if yes or No, it's been a while. Other factors may alarm you: change in smell, texture... At BeautyMix, all your homemade cosmetics can be kept for three months thanks to our super conservative approved by Ecocert/COSMOS in organic cosmetics.
Consider recycling! If your bottles are made of glass or aluminum, be sure to recycle them to continue their life cycle.Other tips are available on our blog post "A moment to sort".
Stage 2 : Rank...
Once sorted, organize your space. The BeautyMix team can only advise you to take a few moments to soak up two methods of organization and storage.
The first is the "Feng Shui". This Chinese ancestral art highlights the principles of interior design to live in harmony with and in it. The idea being to respect certain rules according to the rooms of your house to live there in a harmonious way and to circulate the good energies. To find out more, you can click on This article.
Another very fashionable practice is the storage method "KonMaric", created by Marie Kondo. The latter well-known is based on six rules:
Tidy up and do it seriously
Imagine your ideal lifestyle
Sort by category and not by location
Follow the order given
Ask yourself if it brings joy
Thank the things you get rid of.
