Healthier Beauty

I CHOOSE HEALTHIER BEAUTY…AND YOU?

Skin problems were the main reason that got me started in my health journey. Since I was 18 until my early twenties, I tried endless treatments: antibiotics, birth control pills, hormones, steroids, over-the counter medicine, creams and weird diets, but nothing seemed to give me permanent results. Eventually, my skin problems evolved to digestive disorders, allergies, depression, lack of energy and difficulty managing my weight. (Read my story here)

When my physical health began to affect my emotional health I realized that something different had to get done. So I decided to start healing from within, exactly from my gut.

As I began to heal naturally, I also became more aware about the substances I was applying on my skin. For years, I had been using Retin A, creams with cortisol and other harmful ingredients hoping that they will help improve my skin condition. Unfortunately, they were doing more harm than good.

I became more conscious of my skincare products when I learned about the lack of regulation in the beauty industry.

Can you believe that the last regulation that governs what goes into our skincare products was passed in 1938??? The Gold Gate Bridge was built in 1987 for goodness sake!

And since then 85,000 chemicals have been added to the skincare industry and only 10-15% are regulated for human safety.

DID YOU KNOW?

In my hunt for safer skincare, I learned that an organic or natural label doesn’t mean much, since the beauty industry is so poorly regulated, companies can pretty much label their products as they please.

A dear friend introduced me to Beautycounter and it has forever changed the way I look at beauty.
