If you’re feeling overwhelmed by your hair, skincare, and makeup collection, it might be time for a cull. A cull is the process of getting rid of products that you no longer use, need, or love. It can be a daunting task, but it’s worth it in the end.
Here are some of the benefits of doing a hair, skincare, and makeup cull:
- Frees up space. A hair, skincare, and makeup cull can free up a lot of space in your bathroom or vanity. This can be especially helpful if you live in a small space.
- Saves money. Once you’ve gotten rid of the products that you don’t use anymore, you’ll save money on new products. You’ll also be less likely to impulse buy new products because you’ll know that you already have what you need.
- Improves your routine. When you only have the products that you love and use, your hair, skincare, and makeup routine will be more efficient and enjoyable.
- Reduces waste. Hair, skincare, and makeup products can expire, so it’s important to get rid of them before they do. This will help to reduce waste and protect the environment.
If you’re ready to do a hair, skincare, and makeup cull, here are a few tips:
- Start by going through your products and getting rid of anything that is expired or damaged.
- Then, get rid of anything that you don’t use anymore or that you don’t love.
- If you have products that you’re not sure about, set them aside in a box. After a few weeks, go back through the box and get rid of anything that you haven’t used.
- Once you’ve gotten rid of the products that you don’t want, organise the rest of your products. This will make it easier to find what you need and to create a routine that works for you.
Here are some additional tips for doing a hair, skincare, and makeup cull:
- Be honest with yourself about what you use and love. It’s easy to keep products that you think you use, but that you really don’t. Be honest with yourself and only keep the products that you love and use on a regular basis.
- Don’t be afraid to get rid of expensive products. Just because a product was expensive doesn’t mean that it’s good for you. If you don’t like a product or if it’s not working for you, get rid of it, even if it was expensive.
- Don’t feel guilty about getting rid of products. It’s okay to get rid of products that you don’t use anymore or that you don’t love. You don’t have to keep a product just because you spent a lot of money on it.
- Use up products if you can. As long as you aren’t allergic to a product, you could have a week or so of trying to use up bits an bobs. This will feel very satisfying as you watch your recycling bag fill up and your draws, cupboards and bathroom empty.
Doing a hair, skincare, and makeup cull can be a great way to free up space, save money, improve your routine, and reduce waste. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by your collection, it’s definitely worth considering doing a cull.
