When making a swap to safer, I strongly suggest using cleaner body care options. As you may know, for over ten years now, I’ve battled with a skin condition called psoriasis. Psoriasis is a common skin condition that speeds up the life cycle of skin cells. It causes cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin. The extra skin cells form scales and red patches that are itchy and sometimes painful. Psoriasis is a chronic disease that often comes and goes. When I first started experiencing these symptoms, I didn’t know what was causing it or what it was. It was really embarrassing dealing with this issue and not knowing what it was or how to treat it. It wasn’t until I started transitioning into a healthier lifestyle that I finally figured out I had psoriasis and what was causing my flareups.
I can say without a doubt that psoriasis can be caused by two things: stress and/or an environmental factor. Environmental factors can be chemicals in your shampoo, body lotion, laundry detergent or a side effect from a prescribed medication or vaccine reaction. In terms of treatment, I always lean into cleaning up what I am in control of first (what I apply to my body – why I am so passionate about safer body care products). I’ve found that learning what ingredients to stay away from can be very helpful and can potentially help your skin completely heal. Find out more about my Psoriasis journey here and here.
Once I learned to check ingredients, I went on the hunt for non-toxic options that fit my lifestyle needs. Hands down, my favorite clean body product brand is Beautycounter!
I’m still waiting on my shipment of the newest goodies, but I wanted to mention that the Beautycounter bath and body collection recently got a MAJOR glow up! Not only are they amazing but they’re gorgeous too! The sugar scrub I have pictured above is sort of like a mini sneak peek but take a look at this photo of what the fully repackaged line looks like!
I mean, I know I probably shouldn’t get that excited about bath products, but when they’re as pretty as those are, how can you not?! The Beautycounter bath essentials collection is your ultimate shower experience and with new and sustainable packaging, it’s perfect for your daily use!
The aluminum packaging is a huge upgrade for us and for you as a consumer because it allows us to recycle 21% more than plastic! Not only is the packaging new but the products themselves got an ingredient upgrade as well. The daily shampoo, daily conditioner, body wash and body lotion are now formulated with responsibly sourced palm oil (RSPO). The Beautycounter bath and body products have not irritated my skin since I started using them almost 6 years ago! I love the products and the brand itself is doing big things in the beauty industry.
The coolest part of this repack for me is the ability to use refills on our products! That’s right!!! We can now REFILL them. For the first time ever, there are pump-less refills for the daily shampoo, daily conditioner, body wash and body lotion! Just keep the original product pump and simply twist it onto the new refillable replacement aluminum bottle… winning!
You can check out these new products for yourself here and if you’re a new customer to Beautycounter, don’t forget that you can get 20% off your first order. Email me for details – firstname.lastname@example.org – I’m happy to help you maximize your savings and find the best products for you!
