I made the Clean Swap about 2.5 years ago when I made the conscious decision to practice a non-toxic lifestyle. And it’s a decision that can never be made to early. It’s one of those decisions where you’ll hear yourself saying, “why didn’t I start sooner.”
And thats exactly what I said to myself. And that is why I want to share this message with you. It is the perfect time to investigate what ingredients are in the products YOU are using today.
Here’s my Beautycounter journey: I found Beautycounter on my own through hours and hours of researching non toxic makeup and skin care options. I was horrified to find out the EWG.org ratings of the makeup products I had been using for YEARS. These products were costing me way more than the bucks I paid up front. They were costing me my health. Your wellness isn’t just decided by one choice you make on any specific day. It’s little pieces of a big puzzle that over time can do detrimental effects if not matched up correctly. Especially for those of us with a family history of autoimmune conditions. I call the development of my autoimmune condition a “perfect storm.”
So to reverse this perfect storm I had to do more than blame genetics and feel sorry for myself. Our environment is the BIGGEST determinant if these genes get switched on or off. I unfortunately switched mine on, slowly over time, probably since I was a wee little one. I had NO idea until I was 23 years old that my lifestyle choices were this powerful and impactful. I had no REAL idea that the choices I made when I was 12 or 15 or 21 mattered this much. I know this NOW. My perfect storm was an accumulation of many, many things, and I may never know all the pieces to the puzzle, But with the ones that I do know my number one mission now is to reverse it and then spread awareness through sharing my story. One of the pieces to my perfect storm was hormone disruptors. The birth control pills I was on for 10 years diid my hormones no bueno. But there is more the the “perfect storm” and its something that was probably building up since I was a baby. The endocrine disruptors in personal care products. I mean I used Nair when I was 12 for pete’s sake. Had NO idea back then what the heck was in that bottle (I also got a nice chemical burn from it…).
So when I began my healing journey I started to understand the importance of using safer beauty and skin care products. I just couldn’t find a “natural” makeup product that actually worked for more than 20 minutes or was actually, legitimately formulated with cleaner ingredients. Then I stumbled upon Beautycounter.
After reading reviews from hundreds to thousands of people on the Beautycounter website, I bit the bullet. I was a little nervous because no one that I knew of was using Beautycounter at this time. I decided to “invest” in myself becuase I understood the extreme importance of using safer beauty and skin care products for my health.
When I received my first package I was so impressed with the right away. The box was just the right size for my products- there was no wasted space or ridiculous size cardboard boxes. It was so perfect.
I tried the products right away. And seriously, their performance will speak for themselves, if you have any Beautycounter products you know. The are high performing AND made with cleaner ingredients. How can it get better?
