Does Safer Skin Care Really Matter?
Hey Friends! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! We hung out at home on Saturday morning, then I had a girls afternoon of crafting. It reminded me that I do not craft! The company was fun though! Then Sunday we did our church thing and had such wonderful services! Today, I wanted to talk to you about the topic of safer skin care. People, that know I work for Beautycounter often ask me “Does safer skin care really matter? My answer is always yes! You don’t want pesticides on your food, so you purchase organic and you don’t want lead in your paint on your walls so don’t paint your face with it. Make sense?
Safer Skin Care
Before we get too far into this let me confess…..that I am not, nor have I ever attempted to present myself as, a safer skin care expert. But I know what I love, and what I think are great, safer brands. I have also RESEARCHED for myself! I have not simply taken a blogger to influencers word as truth and I encourage you to do the same!
Since college, I’ve been intrigued by health and fitness. I have a passion for it, then lend me to the field of healthcare. Skin care was not something I thought of until I was having hormonal imbalances that were making it hard for us to have a baby. This is when I started paying attention to hormone distributors and chemicals in our everyday lives.
Like any new hippie, I basically ditched every cleanser and moisturizer and replaced it with coconut oil…….because that’s the thing to do right? We use coconut and we are supposed to eat all the kale! It is the largest organ in the body and what it absorbs goes into our bloodstream (I’ve read on an average of 20 seconds). That is why topical medicines are so powerful.
While researching, researching, and more researching I decided to try out Beautycounter. After using Beautycounter products for months, I became a consultant in January of 2017. And, over time, I’ve truly grown to not only love so many of the products we offer but the company as a whole.
I truly believe that our overall toxic exposure it due to the huge increase of toxic chemicals in our environments. I like the ‘bathroom’ theory best. The author explains you can keep dumping garage into a tub but sooner or later it is going to overflow. This ‘overflow’ is when cancer and autoimmune disease starts. This is not something I want for myself, my family, or you!
Today I want to encourage you to just think about the chemicals you are exposed to every day, as well as your family. Whether it be in your lotions, shampoo, make-up, cleaning supply, or laundry detergent. It doesn’t all have to be changed at once. Remember little changes add up to big results.
Plus my 30-year-old skin is bigger than my 25-year-old skin but that is a post for another day.
Now before I wrap this up I have to show you our little man yesterday morning. I mean I am ‘that’ mom! He was so cute!
How adorable right?
He’s the best!
Have a great weekend!
