5 eco-friendly hair removal tips

Going green is the latest ‘cool’ thing. From the young to the old, using sustainable products and cutting done on emissions is a trend that is catching up pretty fast and is affecting consumer choices in every facet of life. So, why should hair removal be any different? While you might not realize this, conventional hair removal or shaving methods create a ton of waste.

Here are 5 simple alternatives that will help you stay hair-free and the planet garbage-free.

1) Electric embrace

Going electric is now the big eco-solution, which the automobile industry has embraced with glee and you, can do the same for hair removal s well. Using an electric shaver can cut down on water wastage, all those razors and a lot more. You can maybe even charge it up using some solar power, if you wish to go completely eco-friendly!

2) Wax to smoothness

How about a bit of hot wax replacing the razor for smooth and hair-free skin? Waxing is pretty easy to get used to, something that you can get done at home and with modern ‘wax strips’ you need not even worry about hot wax and the fussy mess it can make. And the final result that you get with waxing is always a lot better than the use of a razor.

3) Green shaving products

There are many shaving products and even razors, which use sustainable and recyclable materials and if you for some reason still wish to stick to a razor, then picking one of these helps immensely. You can look on both product labels or ask at your supermarket for something ‘green’.

4) IPL Laser hair removal

Generally, Lasers and Intense Pulsed Light are the ones to make it on to a green list, but in the case of hair removal they definitely get the top spot. Permanent hair removal means saving up on a ton of waste and of course saves you both time and plenty of fuss in the long term. Laser and IPL Hair Removal treatments are a one-shot deal and far more energy-saving than razors, waxing or even electric alternatives.

From the simple tick mark, to the three uneven lines, it is all about creating a symbol that tells a story, signifies what the company stands for and exudes the quality of your product.

Logos are an extension to the vast history of symbolism and iconography that human history boasts of. Here are a few tips that will help you understand the trend and design a competent logo for your budding business venture –

  • Think carefully regarding the color that you use and the combination of various shades you employ. Red exudes passion and excitement, blue is considered a symbol of loyalty and strength, purple is seen as representative of elegance, sophistication and royalty and green a harbinger for sustainability. See which color fits your product best and how distinct it looks.
  •  Simple geometric shapes might seem normal, but they to tend to have plenty of impact. They are easy to identify and reach a vast number of people far more quickly.
  • If you wish to go in for a more unusual shape for your logo, then by keeping it relatively simple, you will convey creativity and freshness. Abstract designs are far more attractive, but do make sure you do not over-complicate it too much.
  • Add texture and depth to your logo, which will enable it to stand out from the crowd. Remember that your logo should be clearly visible whether on your product, on the market shelf or on a giant billboard.
  • Design a logo that is timeless and will stand over decades. Re-designing logos every once in a while is a waste of time. It is best to have foresight and not get caught up just in the moment.
