Organizing your skincare products goes hand-in-hand with ensuring you have the right beauty products and the skincare routine to support them. When your products are properly managed, it becomes easier to get into the flow of a sustainable skincare routine.
Secret Beauty Club offers our community skincare products based on the latest scientific knowledge and research to include ingredients that deliver accurate and visible results. In addition, we know that systematically organizing your beauty products will make using them feel more manageable.
To keep your skincare products organized, we have a few easy tips to get you started.
Clear out all old products
This is where you bring all of your products out in the open. It’s the time to get an overview of what you have, what you may need, and just to get an accurate understanding of where you’re at with your skincare and beauty products. See it as a way to take stock of all of the products you own. These could be gifts you’ve received and stored away, half-full products you have but no longer use (check the expiry date), or even empty products that just need to be tossed out. We encourage a sustainable approach to the process of clearing out your old skincare products. If you have products that you don’t use, check that they’re still within the safe range to use, and give these products to a friend or family who could make use of them. Alternatively, donate them to a charity or relevant outreach organization. Finished bottles should be recycled if possible. There are some great uses for bigger product bottles; clean these out and sterilize them before using them as containers for homemade trail mix snacks.
Create a space for your products
Where do you usually wash your face? Is it in the shower or at the basin? Think through your steps when it comes to using your skincare products. After you have finished washing your face, where do you tone and moisturize your skin? Perhaps your skincare routine also includes dry brushing and applying a nourishing body oil to your whole body. Then, you may go on to brushing your teeth and applying make-up. Each person’s skincare routine is unique, but to make the organization of beauty products easy and sustainable, the steps need to be thought through. If it helps, write your process down or jot it out on your phone notepad. If you don’t have a formal skincare routine in place, this step could help you solidify the time and place in an actionable way.
Once you understand your usual routine, you can set out your products so that it matches this. The area where you’re doing the bulk of the work should be where your skincare products live. Usually, you’re using your beauty products in your bedroom or your bathroom. Are you okay with your products being out in the open, or would you prefer them to be stored away? Personal preference is a big thing here. It’s important to note that your beauty products need to be kept in a cool place at room temperature, away from direct sunlight. This ensures that your product’s shelf life and quality remain optimal. With this in mind, you can begin to set out your products in a way that works best for you.
Make the process easy
The conscious awareness of how your skincare process works will guide you in deciding how to layout your products. If you’re washing your face in the shower in the mornings and evenings, you will probably keep your face wash right there. Moving on to the next step in your routine will require where you usually like to apply your products. Most of the time, you will need a mirror to get a good idea of what you’re doing. This is where a bathroom often becomes the best place to carry out your routine! Put your toner, cotton pads, serum, moisturizer (for day and night), as well as your sunscreen (if there is no SPF included in your day cream) out in one area. We like to line our products up in the order that we use them. You can also set out earbuds, your hairbrush, derma roller, as well as make-up removal wipes in that same area. Unless you have quite a bit of space, it may be best to use a storage box, basket, or cupboard area to keep your products together. With a bathroom especially, other people may also use that space, quickly becoming cluttered at the basin area. Using a woven basket is a trendy and eye-catching way to store your beauty products. It adds to a minimalistic look and feel.
