January 2016

A new month, another fresh start. In fact, it was almost a year & a half ago that I decided to join forces with Beautycounter as there was something I couldn't ignore about this little Santa Monica startup - and I'm so glad I jumped right in! We closed out another record breaking month as a team, welcomed hundreds of new consultants - getting more safe products out into the marketplace and really educating those in our communities about the harmful effects of toxic chemicals.

Not only has this journey been one of passion and excitement as I watch the safe beauty movement grow (people are really starting to pay attention and educate themselves!), but I absolutely LOVE that I get to play a part in helping others live out their dream! Whether its leaving their day job to spend more time with their kids, adding extra income to their family's household or even giving others the confidence to step out of their comfort zone to do something they are passionate about that they can call their own. We are doing ALL of these things at Beautycounter - empowering others to love what they do and live with purpose which is what life is all about!! Who's ready to join me?!?! Whether you have 4 hours per week or 40, Beautycounter can work for you!

I love the following video, when we went to Capital Hill this past November to lobby for change in the personal care & cosmetics industry :)

Beautycounter Goes To Washington

Are you looking to transition to a healthier lifestyle in 2016? Don't forget about the products that you use on yourself and your family every single day. Is your current makeup routine benefitting you, or benefitting the companies that make them for cheaper prices using cheaper, toxic products? Don't be afraid to BREAK UP with your MAKE UP!

With winter officially here, I wanted to give a little love to our Lustro Face and Body Oils. They are life savers for me this time of year. Pair the oil with a moisturizer and holy cow- Perfection! If you are looking for that perfect addition to your skin care routine, this is it.

We offer 3 different Lustro Face oils that contain 7 base oils that have natural anti-bacterial properties, full of antioxidants and act to balance the pH of your skin. My normal routine includes adding a drop of face oil to the palm of my hand with my morning moisturizing cream – mix together and press into my face. It is the perfect make up primer. I have never once felt greasy and to be honest my face is more balanced and less greasy than ever.

#1 – is for sensitive skin, or all skin types

#2 – is for mature skin, helps fight and prevent wrinkles, uneven skin tone & texture

#3 – is for angry skin – acne prone, rosacea, extreme dry or oily.

I personally use #3 because I have mild rosacea on my cheeks.

For the body we have Lustro Body Oil in Rosemary/Citrus and Rose Neroli- a nourishing and luminescent oil treatment for the whole body. This intensely moisturizing blend of 13 and 11 oils, respectively, leaves skin looking silky, smooth and glowing.

These 2 products will last around 6-12 months. Truly, a little bit goes a long way - it only takes a DROP!

They can be themed (I did a Beautycounter & Brunch social before that was sooo fun - we had a bloody mary bar!) or can be small over coffee & conversation. Let me know what works for you!

And finally, because what you put IN your body is just as important as what you put ON it, here is a recipe that I have become obsessed with: Lentil Soup!! One of my personal goals is to eat more of a variety of vegetables, and a more vegetable based diet (I still eat meat, I just want my base to be more veggies!). I'm learning that stews and soups are a great way to sneak in more vegetables!! I found this recipe on Pinterest.

Cheers to the New Year, and a happier & healthier you!
