Over the past couple of years, you’ll no doubt have heard about the impact of plastics on our environment. Thanks to documentaries like Blue Planet, multiple awareness campaigns from eco charities and the banning of microbeads in the UK, plastic consumption has been a hot topic and as a nation, we’ve become far more aware of our environmental footprint.
This Saturday, 1st December, marks one of the most important shopping days in the calendar, particularly for indie brands, like us at KOHA Beauty.
It’s Small Business Saturday; when shoppers are encouraged to seek out smaller brands, indie boutiques and independent designer-makers, whether they’re shopping for their Christmas gifts or as an alternative to their high-street purchases.
You’ll have seen posters for weeks proclaiming the discounts available, but this Friday is the big day itself: Black Friday. With special offers and slashed prices at every turn, it’s a bargain hunter’s paradise. But the flip side to this is the dangers of impulsive buying and, of course, excess wastage, particularly in the beauty industry – as we spoke about in last week’s blog post.
Every week, it seems that there’s another news story about how our buying habits, particularly in the beauty and health industries, are affecting the environment. Now, more so than ever, it’s important to be thoughtful when it comes to your purchasing choice. We encourage our customers and our readers to choose brands that are eco-friendly, sustainable and biodegradable, like KOHA is proud to be.
We’re delighted to be bringing you some very exciting news in this week’s blog: we have launched KOHA Kids! A brand-new collection for KOHA Beauty, Kids is a capsule collection of eco-friendly and ethical items to help make caring for your children a little more fun and a lot more sustainable.
Wave goodbye to plastic toothbrushes and single-use wipes clogging up the environment; our KOHA Kids collection brings you the items you need, in an ethical and cruelty-free fashion – perfect for parents concerned about the damage that plastic consumption is causing globally.
As we hurtle towards November, it’s getting a little chilly outside, and, if you’re like us, you’ll have had the central heating on for a few weeks already. But those extremes in temperatures, combined with the wind and the dry air, can all play havoc with your skin.
Like millions across the country, we couldn’t wait to see what the Princess Eugenie would look like on her wedding day last Friday – and we weren’t disappointed! Gliding down the aisle in a bespoke Peter Pilotto ivory gown, she looked like a princess bride from a fairy tale, complete with a radiant glow.
When it comes to skincare, the advice out there can be a bit of a minefield, and it’s hard to know what we should be doing in order to care for our skin properly. There’s a lot of confusion about which skin types should exfoliate and how often one should do so – but the answer is really very simple.
Everyone can benefit from regular, gentle exfoliation, particularly when it’s as light as the exfoliation offered by a konjac sponge.
If you’re reading this blog, we’d say it’s pretty likely that you’ve taken an interest in your skincare regime. You’re well-versed in the importance of taking care of your skin, and you’ve probably got a product for every occasion.
But we’re willing to bet that there’s one feature of your face that’s falling short of the mark – your lips. When it comes to your pout, we’re finding that many of you just don’t grant them the same prestigious level of care you happily bestow on the rest of your face.
It might only be September, but the weather outside is telling us to start getting ready for Autumn’s chill to set in. And it might come as a surprise, but just as you start adjusting your wardrobe in time for the cooler weather, you should also be adjusting your skincare regime.
Why, we hear you cry? Well, the answer is simple. Cold weather can make your skin dry, when it’s lacking in oil, or dehydrated, when it’s lacking in water, so it’s important to amend your skincare routine to ensure that skin stays nourish and soft, whatever the weather.
