Beauty & Health Can Go Hand In Hand

Beauty & Health Can Go Hand In Hand

Have you ever looked at the ingredients on the back of your food packaging? What about the
back of personal care products? Do you try to make yourself aware of what goes in your body?

As a yoga instructor, I try to teach my students body awareness- not just on the mat, but off the
mat. I encourage my students to make healthy conscious decisions of what not only goes IN
the body, but also what goes ON the body.

Our skin absorbs 60% of what we put on it. And 90% of the most commonly used ingredients in
personal care products have never been tested for safety! Companies are legally allowed to
use chemicals that are known carcinogens and hormone disruptors! And although lead was
removed from gasoline and house paint in the 1970’s, these heavy metals are still found in
lipsticks and makeup. In 2007, the FDA conducted a “400-lipstick study”: the average
concentration of lead was 1.11 ppm (parts per million), while the highest value was 7.19 ppm.
(To put this in perspective, the FDA’s recommended limit for lead in candy is 0.1 ppm; there is
no limit for lead in cosmetics.)

These heavy metals build up in our bodies and have been linked to heart damage, lung
damage, kidney damage, lowered I.Q and cancer! In the 1960’s, 1 in 20 U.S women were
diagnosed with breast cancer. Today, 1 in 8 will be diagnosed. (Only 10% of these women
have a genetic link to the disease.) 1 in 3 children will be diagnosed with autism, ADHD,
asthma or allergies. These statistics have sky rocketed over the last 20 years. Toxic chemicals
are surely one factor!

The lack of regulation motivated me to make my own soaps, laundry detergents, lotions and
toners. Unfortunately, it is not only time consuming, it is costly! After years of doing this, I was
thrilled to find Beautycounter, a company that produces elegant, esthetically appealing, nontoxic
personal care products.

As my family and I started using the products, I found myself introducing them to more family
and friends. Because I believe in their mission, and I share their passion to create awareness, it
became a natural fit for me to join Beautycounter as a consultant. As a client, I’m so relieved to
KNOW what is in my products and am assured they are SAFE for my kids, my family, myself!
As a consultant, I am fulfilling my greater purpose in helping others help themselves!

There is so much information I want to share with you. Information about labeling, ingredients,
statistics, our lack of regulation within the personal care product industry… Please email me if
you’d like to be added to my newsletter geared toward awareness. I encourage you to go to my
website and click on the “about” tab to start your education.

Try the products! Beauty counter offers a 30 day guarantee so it’s risk free. As a courtesy to
my “SIS”ters, I will credit you 10% of the total first purchase towards your second purchase. I’m
confident you will love them so much you’ll be sharing them with your friends and family too!

I would love to hear what you think!

After moving ten times in the first three years of marriage, I quickly learned about simplicity~ “less is more” (less stuff, less drama, and a less toxic lifestyle)! My husband, Nate, was playing minor and major league baseball, and, in the process, I was learning to adjust to the constant changes. I quickly experienced that resisting change can be toxic. I took control of what I could- for me, it became my own health. I practiced yoga for years before becoming a yoga instructor. I researched nutritional health before becoming a passionate gardner. And I made my own soaps and lotions, before becoming an advocate for Beautycounter. It is a practice that I continually work on, but if I allow myself to embrace the present moment, connect with the universe, and do my very best…life is healthier and happier for myself and my family- from the inside out!
