So the holiday season has come to an end and boy am I feeling the effects of too many sweets, too much wine and a lot of carbs! My skin is dry, my lips are chapped and the breakouts are here ?
I know I need to drink more water, start to eat clean, eliminate dairy and carbs, get back to the gym…blah blah…the list goes on. All the things we tell ourselves on January 1st, write down in new journals, post on our bathroom mirrors and swear we are going to do in the new year. 2020 is a big year for me (I turn 40 this year) ?? so the only thing I am going to promise myself is I live the best year yet!
One thing I know I NEED to do is detox my skin from the holiday sweets and wine BUT in a clean way with safe products. The last thing I want to do is put more toxins and harmful chemicals ON and IN my body.
Beautycounter offers safer and cleaner skincare that will help me get my radiant glow back! Beautycounter is the leader in CLEAN and SAFE beauty and skincare promised to deliver results without harsh chemicals. #betterbeauty
First I start with a good cleanser that works well for combination skin and is ultra-gentle removing impurities without harsh chemicals that can strip away natural oils. The Countermatch Cleansing Milk is a conditioning formula that respects the skin’s balance, replenishing essential hydration so skin feels soft and nourished, never dry.
Then I want to detox my skin so I apply the #3 Charcoal Mask. It’s great for pulling excess oils from the skin and drawing out the impurities bringing them to the surface of the skin for easier removal. The mask is a fan favorite year round. I use this at least once a week.
It can dry your skin out so make sure you apply the #3 Balancing Facial oil after removing the mask for perfect hydration. It’s light-weight and designed to hydrate, smooth and even skins tone. Yang Lang is an essential oil know to calm skin.
You gotta use a serum, a “heavy duty moisturizer for dry winter months” alone won’t cut it. I ❤️❤️❤️ the Countermatch Intense Serum. I use this year round! It’s perfect for skin that needs deep hydration. It’s not heavy or oily and will penetrate the deep layers of the skin to hydrate from the inside out.
I complete my skincare regimen with my Countertime Tetrapeptide Supreme Cream. It’s marketed as a PM cream but after being on acutane in college my skin is really dry (especially in the dry winter months) so I use the pm during the day as well.
It’s Supremely rich and deeply hydrating, it supports elasticity and visibly firms while minimizing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. With continued use, wake up to more radiant, youthful-looking skin????
