Believe it or not, even the smallest choices can help the planet. Luckily the dance world has tons of eco-friendly products to choose from.
For Your Face
Makeup is a dancer must-have.
But many drugstore options are tested on animals and contain chemicals that can irritate skin. Opt for makeup products enriched with antioxidants or minerals, like bareMinerals or organic brand Juice Beauty. They're eco-friendly—and your skin will benefit, rather than suffer under another pancake layer.

For Your Feet
All dancers deserve a little foot TLC. And while it's easy to pick up a generic brand of foot powder, it's not always easy to know where the ingredients came from. Pointe Snaps Ballet Products is a dance product company that takes the guessing out of it. They've got plenty of certified organic options to keep your feet as pristine as possible, including pointe powder, to make sure your shoes stay fresh, and a sea-salt foot soak that soothes everything from achy arches to bunions.
