Skin Care without the toxins!
I gave up most makeup and skincare products years ago when I began to have my own hormone imbalances after having my third child. I pretty much never wore makeup unless it was a special occasion and began to use the oil cleansing method for my skincare routine (check out Liz Wolfe's Purely Primal Skincare Guide for more details on that, or google it). I even made my own sugar scrubs and moisturizers. I'm a HUGE fan of people making their own skincare products. I still do when I have the time. Nothing seems to work quite like my homemade grass fed tallow moisturizing balm for this dry Colorado weather. You can check out my blog post on homemade moisturizers using beef tallow and lard! However, I am a busy mom with four kids including one being a baby which means my time is now very limited to making my own stuff. Not only that, but I have seriously missed some quality makeup. I mean, I am a woman after all who does like to feel beautiful and get glammed up on occasion. Not to mention I am 31 years old and hoping to slow down my aging if at all possible. So, I was so excited when I found out about Beautycounter!!! A company that bans more than 1500 dangerous chemicals, they never add anything that has been shown to be harmful to our health, never add hormone disrupting chemicals, and they test every single batch of products for heavy metals. Heavy metal exposure is a huge problem, but that's a whole other post of its own. The charcoal bar is all the craze right now, and with summer here the sunscreen stick is so convenient and perfect for those days when you'll be out in the sun all day! So if you are like me, a crunchy all natural gal who loves making her own stuff, but also misses her Clinique or Tarte skincare and makeup try out Beautycounter cause I just think you might fall in love!
