#ProTipTuesday

While many of us make attempts to keep our skin and our families’ skin safe from the potential damages of the sun, how much do we really know about what’s in all of those sunscreens and moisturizers?  I for one spend a lot of time trying to put more organic, natural foods into my body but up until recently, didn’t apply this way of thinking to skincare and beauty products.

It was through my friend Isadora that I was made aware of the potential damages of some products out on the market.  I was shocked to find out that some of these products contain formaldehyde (yes FORMALDEHYDE!), animal fats and benzophenone(which is a potential carcinogenic). She introduced me to a skincare and beauty products line called Beautycounter.  This company sets out to create safe products with none of these ingredients.  Their goal is to  make “Safer Beauty and Skin Care Products” that are both trendy and safe to use on your whole family.

I really believe what we expose ourselves to externally is just as important as what we ingest. As a wife, mom and someone who loves to spread the word on products that I truly believe in, here is Isadora’s 5 Must Have Beautycounter Products for Summer 2017.  


5 Must Have Beautycounter Products for Summer 2017

by Beauty Counter Senior Manager, Isadora Prizeman

Don’t go out in the sun without a non-toxic sunscreen this Summer. Beautycounter Protect All Over Sunscreen SPF 30 protects against UVA and UVB rays with lightweight and water- resistant sunscreen.  They blend seamlessly into skin without leaving white streaks behind, replenish moisture, and protect skin with aloe, green tea, and blood orange extract.  Beautycounter also has three other sun protection products that are must haves you should check out.  Protect Big Stick Sunscreen SPF 30,  Protect Stick Sunscreen (Face) SPF 30 and Protect Lip Balm SPF 15.  

2015 Allure Best Beauty Award winning Dew Skin is the perfect tinted moisturizer that contains SPF 20.  It provides the perfect lightweight coverage to even out your skin while protecting your skin from the sun.   It is available in 5 different shades so you are able to easily match your skin tone.  

 

Your skin will thank you when you use Beautycounter’s Hydrating Body lotion. This lotion nourishes thirsty skin with a fast- absorbing blend of essential oils, shea butter, and jojoba.  

 

The product I didn’t know I needed till I started using it.  Nourishing Rose Water is made with organic rose essence, purified water, and moisturizing sodium hyaluronate. With a couple of spritz your skin will feel refreshed.  It can be used as a toner before you apply your moisturizer or after you apply your makeup to set it or during the day for a pick me up.

For Summer I’m all about Lip Gloss and Beauty Counter’s lip gloss is non-sticky, super-shiny and extremely moisturizing.  It comes in many beautiful colors and with its unique teardrop applicator it deposits the perfect amount of sheer color.  If looking for a deeper color I recommend layering it over one of our great sheer lipsticks.
