Today I am sharing my journey towards safer skincare products with Beautycounter. After I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2016 I made the decision to create a healthier lifestyle for me and my family. Surprise...this is how this blog was started! I started focusing on healthier foods by slowly incorporating more fruits and vegetables into my diet and less processed food. Nothing too drastic though, just a slow but very conscious and serious effort to eat more whole, real food.
But we all know that creating a healthy lifestyle doesn't stop with just the foods we eat. It not only involves our food choices, but also your household cleaning products, skincare products, exercising, wellness and so much more.
This year I knew it was now time to focus on the products I was using on my skin.
Earlier this year I became pregnant with my third child and quickly found out that the skincare regimen that I was using was not safe to use during pregnancy. I was so devastated because I had been using these for a while now and did not want to go shopping for new skincare products. But I started thinking that if these are not safe to use when pregnant, then why would I want to use them at all...even after pregnancy?!
INTRODUCTION TO BEAUTYCOUNTER
I remembered hearing about Beautycounter a few years back and how their products contained a lot less harmful chemicals than some of the ones found on the market today.
After doing more research I learned that Beautycounter goes above and beyond the average health and safety standards for what is legally required in the United States; when it comes to their products. They screen and assess ingredients for safety and health impacts and provide a very transparent list of over 1,800 questionable or harmful ingredients that they never use in their products. This list is published on their website and can be found here “The Never List.”
At this point in my life, I knew this was the route that I needed to go in with my health. I started with trying the Counter Control Cleanser, Counter Control acne treatment and Counter Match moisturizer as my daily skincare regimen for morning and night. And I instantly loved it! I could immediately tell that the ingredients were a much higher quality than the over-the-counter stuff that you buy at your local store.
I now use several Beautycounter products and I love the fact that I’m using cleaner, safer ingredients on my skin. I’m also excited to join their mission to help get cleaner, safer ingredients to all those who want to feel good about what they are using on their skin while not compromising on product performance.
You can now do your own research and purchase any products that you want by clicking on my website below. Or feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about any of the products and what skincare regimens would be good for you.
Have fun shopping around and welcome to cleaner, safer and better beauty products!
