When it comes to health and wellness, most people think about what goes inside their bodies, not what goes on top of their bodies. What we put on top of our bodies each day is just as important as what we put inside of it. What we rub, spray, and put on our skin absorbs directly into our bloodstream (It only takes 26 seconds to absorb!). YIKES! Because this happens with the naked eye, we tend to not think twice about the products we use. As someone who is highly sensitive to chemicals, I knew that switching my skincare routine was an essential lifestyle change I had to make if I wanted to reestablish my health. I knew that my body wouldn’t be able to fully heal using chemicals on it everyday.
There are tons of “natural” products out on the market today, but are they really as “natural” as they claim to be? You might be surprised to find out. The FDA does not currently regulate or test products for health risks and can label things as “natural” without any disclosure as to what it actually means. SCARY!
Here are 3 reasons why I have chosen to use Beautycounter as a part of my health regimen:
- The NEVER LIST- This is a full disclosure list of chemicals that Beautycounter WILL NEVER put in their product formulations. They test all of their products for safety and ban over 1500 chemicals in their products that may be linked to to cancer, infertility, and hormone imbalance (Yes, toxic chemicals are contributors to this!-Hello thyroid issues!).
- Transparency- Every ingredient that is used in each Beautycounter product is listed on their website. No guessing, No BS! Also, The Environmental Working Group has ratings of all of their products. On a scale of 1-10, they are all rated between 1-3 in terms of toxicity (allergy concern, cancer concern, and developmental concern.) I encourage you to search for the current skincare products you are using on this website.
- They work great for all skin types!- They have worked great for my dry, oily, and acne prone sensitive skin. I started out just looking for a moisturizer and ended up buying a bunch of other products because I was so satisfied with the way their products looked and felt on my skin.
Here are some of my favorite products (Click the links below the pictures to shop!) Also, you can purchase by clicking here.
