Let's Talk Summer Skin Care...

Take care of yourself and your family!

Summer is here and the living is easy!

For many of us, Summer is such a fun time of year! We tend to spend a lot more time outdoors and it's time to think about how we are taking care of our skin, not only in the sun, but after sun too! My role at Beautycounter is to be a beauty educator; we are an education first, product second company! I love that Beautycounter went to great lengths to eliminate OVER 1500 ingredients from our products so they are one of the safest and most transparent beauty companies in the industry; while also making sure our products are very high performing---because you should never have to settle for less!!!

Did you know that many sunscreens on the market contain oxybenzone? Oxybenzone can soak through the skin, trigger allergic skin reactions and may be an endocrine disruptor. What is an endocrine disruptor? Take a quick look at this video from our Head of Safety, Mia Davis (she is a big deal - she was at the forefront of getting BPA's out of plastic bottles and was the former head of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics before joining Beautycounter.)

Beautycounter's Protect Sun Screens use non-nano zinc oxide, which is a safer, effective, natural mineral sun-blocker.

What is a hormone disruptor?

The 411 on Beautycounter's Safe Sun Protection

  • Protect Lip Balm - this is very moisturizing and hydrating for your lips while blocking UVA/UVB rays. It glides on easily and has ingredients like cocoa and shea butter, coconut oil and acai fruit oil---leaving lips smooth and they taste good too!
  • Protect All Over Sunscreen - With SPF 30, this is a lightweight, water-resistant sunscreen that is super easy to apply and blends into your skin right away! You can use it on the entire family! Aloe helps hydrate skin while oxidant-rich green tea and blood orange extracts fight free radicals! I LOVE this product!
  • Protect Sweet Tooth Stick Sunscreen - The littles will LOVE this one when you apply it! They won't make a fuss and fight you on this one! It glides on smoothly and doesn't leave a white streak; it's suitable for face and body! It has a nice sweet smell that the kiddos love!
  • Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer - This is absolutely one of my FAVE Beautycounter products for face! SPF 20 provides lightweight sheer hydration that evens skin tone while protecting the skin from sun damage. Black currant, peony flower root extract and Vitamin C reduce the appearance of age spots and enhance skin brightness while hyuralonic acid promotes smoother, firmer looking skin! This was a Best In Beauty Award Winner from Allure magazine!!!! You'll love and it will last you all Summer and then some!!
