12 Days of Self Care | Switch to Safer Products
I’m a worrier.
I worry about my kids eating enough of the right foods (what does that even mean?) and about the sunscreen I put on their faces because #colorado. I worry about how much plastic we use and how much junk is in my shampoo/lotion/makeup/toothpaste/etc.
Do you know the best way to fix worrying? Get control over the things that are causing you to feel…well…out of control.
For me, that has recently meant making safer choices by switching out our skin care and beauty products. So far, I’ve replaced all of my makeup and my skin care line up. Ok, to be honest, my skin care routine didn’t really exist until I started using Beautycounter. I’ve also switched to safer sunscreen and shampoo for the kids. It has seriously made my daily routine much less overwhelming and here’s why:
Beautycounter is leading the movement to get safer products in the hands of EVERYONE. They speak out and work to change laws around what ingredients can be put into the products we put directly on our bodies. Did you know that hasn’t been changed since 1938??? Yeah. Ridiculous.
I care about our planet and Beautycounter is a company that is aware of their impact. They focus on being smarter with their ingredients and packaging, which makes me very happy.
By using Beautycounter products, I can help educate others and push their movement forward in my own small way.
Ready to make the switch? Here’s how to get started:
- Use this link to join the advocacy efforts. It requires very little effort but can help make an impact.
- If you’re not sure what products to start with, the Best of Beautycounter holiday set is perfect! It has all my favorite things and gives a great intro experience.
- Another great place to start is with a great lipstick. So much lipstick ends up on and IN our bodies, so this is a great item to switch out. My favorite is this lip sheer in rose.
The key here is to make sure you are informed. The more you know, the easier it will be to make the swap! I’m happy to help if you still feel like you don’t know where to begin. Let me know how I can help you take better care of your health and get fun (clean) new stuff for you and your family!
