{Playing it Safe with Skincare}

I've turned a corner, and it is SO refreshing. For years now, all I cared about as far as skincare goes were products that would fill wrinkles, tighten skin, and take years off, no matter what the ingredients. The sad thing is, I still used the products even if I KNEW they were bad for my skin and filled with harmful toxins. 

During both of my pregnancies and when I was nursing, I really omitted a lot of my skincare products because I knew they weren't safe for my growing babies. I was constantly scouring the Internet to make sure everything I used was safe...Well, guess what? Most of it wasn't.

Then my baby boy changed everything. Every time I gave him a bath, his precious skin would break out, and he would be red all over. I switched the soaps, tried all the baby bath wash I could find, and it finally took me reading an article about all the harmful ingredients found in some baby bath products that forced me to have a wake-up call. Enough was enough. It was time for me to make a change for my babies and for myself, and that's exactly what I have done.

Enter Beautycounter. What an absolute blessing it is to have found this wonderful company whose mission is to get safe products into the hands of everyone.

My journey with Beautycounter began when I fell in love with their Kidscounter line. It has worked wonders on both of my kids, and I'm so happy to have found it. As I began trying the products for myself, I fell even more in love with the products, the mission, and the company. The rest is history...I have joined the Beautycounter team so I can help share this wonderful mission, and it's one of the happiest decisions I've ever made.

This past weekend, I filled a trash bag full of all the skincare products I used to use, and boy did it feel good!! I'm playing it safe, and it is so refreshing to know that I have made an awesomely positive change for my sweet family. You can too, and you can start by taking baby steps. Try our products...You won't be disappointed!! After all, we only get one body...This skin is ours forever, and we need to take the best care of it.

  1. I haven't heard of beauty counter, their approach sounds awesome! That's the thing with all these concentrated serums about, things like vitamin C are irritants, and they are water based, where as the top layer of your skin and the outer layer of all your cells are oil based, so they have a real hard time penetrating skin AND they breakdown that protective oily layer which means irritation, dryness, sensitivity... phew! I am with YOU!
