BeautyCounter Tips with Our Rider, Amber Swanson...


Earlier in the week we sat down with one of our devoted riders &  Senior Consultant for BeautyCounter, Amber Swanson. We wanted to share some of the fabulous things about this friendly beauty company that everyone on the street is talking about...


Exercise is obviously such a big component of overall health and wellbeing.  But what we put ON our bodies is so important as well.  That's why I jumped on the Beautycounter bandwagon!  Its a beauty brand that puts safety first while still maintaining a high level of efficacy.  Nerd alert...here comes an astounding fact.  On a daily basis, women use an average of 12 personal care products containing 168 ingredients.  Of those 168 ingredients, so many have the potential to be toxic and therefore harmful to your health, particularly with prolonged use.  This includes exposure through your makeup.

There is a big misconception that every natural ingredient is "good" and every synthetic one is "bad."  Heavy metals, for example, can be naturally occurring, but often contaminate the colorants that cosmetic companies use.  Lead, cadmium, mercury, and arsenic are four of the biggest offenders.  That perfect shade of red lipstick that you can't live without may actually have lead in it!!  So to answer a common question, our products aren't all natural, as they do contain some synthetic ingredients, but that isn't as awful as it sounds.  

As for my fave cosmetic product, our Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer is my go-to winner.  I've never been a huge fan of foundation, but the Dew Skin is amazing.  Its lightweight and super sheer, leaving the skin with a dewy glow (hence the name!).  It also has SPF 20, so I love that I have daily sun protection.  If you don't believe me, ask resident spin instructor extraordinaire, Julie Insogna...she's a big fan of this product!! It was one of Allure Magazine's Best of Beauty 2015 winners!
