A Healthy Start to 2016 continued

Here are a few tips to limit your exposure to toxic chemicals this year: add house plants to reduce indoor air pollution, remove shoes at the door to limit exposure to heavy metals and pesticides, and switch to safer beauty products.

Did you know the last time Congress passed a law regulating the cosmetics industry was 1938?! For years I’ve been focusing on what I put into my body but didn’t give much thought to what was going ON my body. I knew about avoiding the Dirty Dozen and BPAs, but all the while, I was allowing carcinogenic chemicals and toxic ingredients into my family’s everyday lives through the products we were using.

Enter Beautycounter. Their mission is simple - to get safe products into the hands of everyone. Their products go far beyond "all natural." They are 100% real and 100% effective. They have set a new industry standard by banning more than 1,500 ingredients, all while ensuring their products perform and are as indulgent as any luxury face cleanser, shampoo, or lipstick on the market!

Please contact me anytime to discuss how you can make progress for your family's health or visit my website to learn more about Beautycounter. Here’s to a healthy start for all of us in 2016!
