the story behind why I chose Beautycounter.

Choosing Clean Beauty

Naturally, when I found out I was pregnant, I started taking a closer look at the everyday products I was using both on my body and within our home. It made me even more passionate about living out a “toxin-free,” cleaner lifestyle. It is actually INSANE how awful SO many of the ingredients are in the products we use every single day, especially the things we put directly on our skin!

At the beginning of pregnancy, I did NOT have that ” pregnant glow.” My skin kept getting drier and drier, and I began having hormonal breakouts. I decided to swap everything over to using exclusively Beautycounter. And WOW was this a game-changer. My skin has felt the best it has literally ever felt in my life, and I am not exaggerating! It feels more even, moisturized, smooth, and overall so much healthier. That's when I decided I wanted to share this with my community too!

There is a whole list of ingredients your doctor will tell you to avoid in your products while pregnant. But my thought is that if those things can potentially be harmful during pregnancy, doesn’t that mean they’re probably harmful ALL the time? What I love about Beautycounter products is that they are CLEAN and upfront about their ingredients. 

You can make one small step toward cleaning up your everyday routine with choosing Beautycounter for your skincare, makeup, shampoo/conditioner, sunscreen, deodorant, + more!

Gosh, I remember how OVERWHELMED I was when it came to putting together a baby registry when I was pregnant. I wasn’t sure what we REALLY needed, what we would end up using, how much of everything to get, etc.

I compiled a nice list here to help guide any expectant mamas out there who may be just as overwhelmed as I was!
