Growing up in Southern California and spending summers in Hawaii had us out in the sun A LOT! We are half Italian with olive skin tone and didn’t burn as kids so my mom didn’t put sunblock on us. Maybe some blue zinc down our nose but that was it! Going to college in Arizona we were outdoors and in the HOT sun a lot. Walking to class, pool parties, BBQs and definitely without sunblock…more like give me all the Ban de Solei and Hawaiian Tropic you’ve got for a golden tan!
If I could go back in time and give my 20-year-old self a few pointers it would be to get a good skincare regimen in place, wear sunblock every day and take more of my mom’s advice. I’d probably tell my younger (more nieve self) to stop doing a few other things too but that’s for another blog. ?
I didn’t realize the lack of attention to my skin, exposure to the sun, and the damage I was causing it would catch up with me and be something I would pay for in my later years. Since getting started with Beautycounter and educating myself on the importance of safe and clean skincare, my skin has recovered and restored to its youthful state.
My NEW must-have product is the Counter + Vitamin C Serum. OMG you guys, this is a game-changer, and here is why you need to add it to your skincare regimen!
- Corrects sun damage and the appearance of dark spots
- Improves skin radiance while brightening
- Promotes an even skin tone
- Packed with antioxidants to help defend skin against environmental stressors like pollution and dust
In the 4 weeks since I started using this product my skin has appeared more radiant, even skin toned and my dark spots that have been brewing since my youth have diminished.
Good News… if you are new to Beautycounter and have never tried one of their products you get 20% off your first order! YES!
Bad News… this product is in such high demand it’s LOW in stock and about to sell out. Due to the key ingredients and COVID-19, it won’t be back in stock until late June. You can’t wait that long!
