Safer Regimens, Real Results

Several ago I found myself struggling with my skin.  It had always been sensitive, but as I got older I noticed that things started to change.  My rosacea had gotten worse, my skin was dry no matter what I put on it, and I had these tiny little bumps right at the top of my forehead along my hairline.  I had been using the same drugstore brand of cleanser and moisturizer since high school, but it obviously stopped working for me. I tried switching to a more high-end brand and even something in the middle.  Everything would make the skin on my face burn and ultimately dry it out.  I had a known avocado oil allergy and I made sure nothing I used contained it or any other related ingredient.  I couldn’t figure out what was causing the reaction and ingredients lists on my skincare weren’t exactly clear.  Then there was those pesky bumps on my forehead.  It appeared to be an allergic reaction, but just as it was with my skincare, I tried switching my products several times and still couldn’t figure it out.  Needless to say I was frustrated and exhausted.

It was then that I was introduced to Beautycounter by one of their independent consultants.  I attended a social at a family friend’s house and the conversation around the lack of regulation in the skincare and cosmetics industry made my ears perk up.  The biggest fact that stood out to me was that there hadn’t been a major federal law passed since 1938 to regulate the industry, yet since that time more than 80,000 chemical have been developed and many don’t have any safety data.  While the European Union has restricted or banned more than 1,400 chemicals from personal care product formulas in the last two decades, the United States has only banned about 30 to date.  I was stunned.  Many of these ingredients have been linked to serious health issues such as cancer, infertility, asthma, hormone disruption, skin irritation and allergies (sound familiar?), just to name a few.  As a solution to the issue Beautycounter’s mission is to raise awareness of the need for change in this industry and put safer products into the hands of everyone.  They also offer a beautiful line of luxurious products from which they have banned more than 1,500 questionable or harmful chemicals through their “Never List.”

After hearing all of this I knew I had to try Beautycounter.  I had a sneaking suspicion that my skin was reacting to one of those 1,500 ingredients on their Never List and their skincare might just be the miracle I had been looking for.  Prior to this event I never had a great skincare regimen, so I decided to go all in and get the Nourishing Collection to establish better habits.  As soon as I received my shipment I washed my face with the Nourishing Cream Cleanser, toned my skin with the Nourishing Rosewater Mist and applied the Nourishing Night Cream.  It was as if the sky opened up, the sun shined on my face and angels were singing!  For the first time in a long time my skin felt refreshed and hydrated.

That may sound dramatic, but it’s the truth.  This stuff was love at first use and things only got better from there: after 2 weeks I noticed my rosacea wasn’t as red and my skin looked so much healthier.  No more burning, itching, or dry skin.  From then on I kept up with my Beautycounter skincare regimen and things continued to improve.  I eventually started using the hair care line, too, and as a result the bumps on my forehead finally disappeared.  After using their products for over 2 years I decided to become an Independent Consultant so I could share all that I have learned with you!
