beauty should be good for youTM

“What you put on your body is as important as what you put in your body”

I’ve had an interest in natural skincare and makeup for decades… but back then, the natural brands that were available were awful. As a result, I used less than healthy drugstore and cosmetic counter brands up until my mid 40s.

Not long after that, at about age 47, I went into full blown menopause.

Sadly, there is some evidence that women with higher levels of chemicals in their bloodstream experience menopause 2-4 years earlier than women with less chemical body burden.

After my early-ish menopause, I was determined to do better by myself. I’d already had most elements of health dialed in… I was eating right, exercising, drinking filtered water. But I was still using unhealthy brands of cosmetics and skincare.

I was furious when I learned that companies are allowed to use harmful ingredients and make their own judgments about safety. Was the stuff that I was using for decades a part of the decline I saw in my health in my mid 40s?

That’s why when I learned about Beautycounter, I joined the mission as a consultant immediately. Beautycounter is not just a makeup and skincare company, it’s a movement to disrupt ‘business as usual’ in the personal care industry and I am 100% onboard with their better beauty mission.

The products are awesome too… as women, we care about our body, the environment and the world at large… but darn it… we still want to look good.

Beautycounter is the perfect mashup of socially responsible company and gorgeous, high performance products.

are you aware that…

There are over 13,000 chemicals used in cosmetics and only 10% have been tested for safety.

The average woman uses 12 personal care products a day, containing 168 different chemicals.

Women with higher levels of these chemicals in their bodies were found to experience menopause two to four years earlier than women with lower levels.

here are some of my favorite products

Countermatch Recovery Sleeping Cream

Natural creams always used to leave my skin feeling like something was lacking. Not this cream, its truly a favorite. Great for aging skin.

overnight resurfacing peel

This gentle, leave on peel is a game changer. Now that I am in my 50s, I need a little extra skin help, but don’t want to do a chemical peel with ingredients that are clearly harmful and leave one with red, peeling skin for days afterward.

cleansing balm

This is a Beautycounter best seller for a reason. It removes every trace of makeup and grime gently. Can also double as an eye makeup remover.

one step makeup remover wipes

These are great, especially for travel.

sheer lipstick

I have fairly full lips already, but this really brings the va-voom
factor to a new level of plumpness. My favorite shade is Twig. These formulas
are super moisturizing without being the least bit sticky.

Charcoal Cleansing Bar

Another best seller for a reason. This bar is very gentle and moisturizing. Almost everyone who tries this bar either becomes a loyal customer or signs up to be a consultant themselves.
