If you’ve followed my blog for any amount of time you know I LOVE a good DIY project. But I have to be honest, I gave up DIY Skincare. I know, I know; you’re shocked. But ladies (and gentlemen) it just wasn’t cutting it anymore. And if I’m honest, it never really was giving me the results I wanted.
Look, I’m 47 years old. I was born and raised in Arizona and have lived in states full of sunshine all of my adult life. My skin isn’t perfect. I have tried the coconut oil, the diy wrinkle creams, the essential oils. But I saw little to no improvement. And like you, my time is a rare commodity that I need to use like precious gold. So if a DIY skincare is sucking up my time without results, it gets the heave ho.
I Quit DIY Skincare
So there I am in all my nearing-50 glory, taking a minivan selfie. No filter just good skincare and a 5 minute face of light make-up.
So ya’ll are probably wondering why the heck I am taking the time to write this article. Well I want to share something with you that has worked for me. I am using Beautycounter – WAIT don’t leave before you read what I have to share. Give me that much of your time, I won’t waste it.
Women use a lot of “beauty” products even if they aren’t big make-up wearing ladies. We just soaps, lotions, specialized skincare, sunscreen, deodorant and so much more I can’t list it all. What you may or may not know is that the skin is your largest organ. So what you are putting on your skin really matters – it is going straight into your bloodstream without any filtration.
Your Beauty Products Are Toxic
You should know that the personal-care industry (skincare, lotions, make-up, etc) in the USA is overseen by a small amount of legislation. Our federal government has not enacted a new piece of governing law over this industry since 1938. See Suffering For Beauty
These large corporations are policing themselves and not really taking your health, your daughter’s health, you mom’s / sister’s or any woman’s health seriously. And now that men or more interested in personal grooming, I think it is safe to say the same for them.
I started my search for the right company, that would offer the best quality ingredients, safe ingredients but still give me results. Over and over I heard Beautycounter but I didn’t jump until this year.
1500 Unsafe Ingredients – Never!
Beautycounter has a “never list” of 1500 unsafe products that you’ll never find in any of their products. They are meticulous about screening every ingredient for safety and THAT gave me the confidence to try it for myself and my daughters! You can see The Never List Here. I hate to drop the BIG C word but you should research these chemicals and their link to cancer.
I Started With A Quiz
After my research I started by taking the Beautycounter Skincare Quiz. With that I chose the Rejuvenating Line of Skincare and decided to jump in and get Flawless in Five Make-up set. I couldn’t be happier with my results and I joined as a consultant.
Side By Side Comparison
Here is a side by side comparison, no filters or editing (which is why the tone is a bit off).
