What steps are you taking for Plastic Free July?

As single-use plastic consumption has seen an all-time high, many brands and consumers are making changes against plastics in daily life over the past few years. Do you find yourself using razors more than you would like to? ‘Plastic Free July’ is a global movement that aims to fight plastic pollution. Here is a simple swap you can make to contribute to a better planet and skincare routine…

In 2018, 5.5 million people in the UK were reported to using disposable razors in their daily routines. Often these razors are ending up in landfills and our oceans every year. If you find yourself constantly reaching for the razor to get rid of body hair, this could be adding to pollution if it is not made of the correct materials. There is one scheme that Gillette has created in partnership with TerraCycle to allow consumers to recycle their razors, so they are disposed of and recycled correctly.

If you’re looking for a long-term solution to hair growth, it’s time to consider laser hair removal. Laser hair removal will reduce the number of razors you are using over a lifetime and help your hair removal routine become plastic-free. Gentle Max Pro by Syneron Candela is the gold standard for laser hair removal, which is safe and effective for all skin types. On average, it is recommended to have a course of 6-8 treatments with 6-8 week intervals in between; after each treatment, clients begin to notice a reduction of hair growth, and by the end of your course, you can expect to see up to 80% hair reduction.

Although it is vital to use razors to clean and prep the area in between treatments and during treatments, we want to ensure we are doing our best to recycle and dispose of plastic items correctly. The urgency for action is, in fact, more critical now than ever, and this month we want to help you take a step to change.
