Did you know the average woman wears an estimated 63 disease-causing chemicals on her skin every day? Hidden toxins can have a big impact on our health. In cosmetics alone, the European Union has banned or restricted more than 1,300 chemicals. The US? Partially bans 30.
It’s up to us to be smart consumers and purchase products that are in line with a healthy lifestyle to reduce our overall toxic load. I don't know about you, but I'm tired of waiting for the government to protect us when it comes to the food and beauty industries.
Here are 5 things I am loving right now:
Countersun Mineral Sunscreen - I love that this light, creamy lotion goes on easily and a little goes a loooong way. I usually prefer sprays because lotions can be thick and heavy. It is also reef safe, which is important to me as a Hawaii resident.
Countertime Collection - Admittedly, I've never used a full line of products before (cleanse, prep, treat, protect). Now I look forward to washing my face every morning and night!
Skin Twin Featherweight Foundation - I feel like I've spent most of my life looking for a foundation that didn't feel like I was wearing foundation (including other BC products). THIS is the winner for me! It's hot in Hawaii and this doesn't feel like my face is melting off - even if I have makeup on before a workout!
All Bright C Serum - I recently added this to my morning face routine because I have sun and age spots on my face and chest that I do not like at all. I have seen a noticeable lightening of the spots on my face and my face is just overall brighter.
Lip Gloss - Just like the name says, it's glossy! I've always been a lip gloss girl. I am very picky about the brand because I don't like sticky or thick. This makes me feel glam, even in my athleisure wear.
I recently became a Beautycounter consultant so that I could help get clean beauty into more hands. Using safe or clean products that do not have toxic ingredients not only helps your skin, it can lower your risk of other health issues like skin cancer, nervous system issues, reproductive issues, and more!
Let me know if I can help you find something you are needing and want to make a switch.
