Safer Beauty

My Love Affair With Beautycounter

Wow. Never in a million years did I think I would fall in love with a beauty care company, but here I am devoting an entire page to one called Beautycounter. I have never been one to use or even think much about skin care, and I have never been crazy about makeup.

And why would I be? All the makeup products I have ever worn made me break out. Lipstick made my lips shred to pieces, and mascara made my eyes water and itch like crazy. Now I know why. The beauty industry is highly unregulated and in fact, companies can put ingredients in their products that have never even been tested, are known to be unsafe, and they don’t even have to list them on the package. Ridiculous. 

Personal care products came into my health picture because they are just as important as the food we buy, the sleep we get, and the exercise we do. What we PUT on our skin goes INTO our body, so it matters. And it especially matters for those of us with autoimmune disease. Using products chock full nasty chemicals and ingredients disrupts our hormones, our gut, our microbiome, and our immune system. A bad combination.

I chose Beautycounter because they’re a company with a mission of getting safer products into the hands of everyone.

A company who refuses to use over 1500 ingredients that have been classified as questionable for our health or have been directly linked to major health concerns.

A company who lobby for change at the federal level.

Beautycounter is not just a great skincare and cosmetics company, they are a movement. I decided to join that movement by becoming a consultant and it was a wonderful decision.

If you want to learn more about safer products through Beautycounter, I invite you to sign up for my monthly newsletter. I send an issue out each month packed with information about why it matters to use safer personal care products, promotions, special offers, and tips and advice on how to take care of your skin.

Join the safer beauty movement. You won’t regret it. 🙂
