I’m so excited to talk about my summer skincare routine. I can’t believe I actually typed that! Most of us are excited to share with friends when we find something we are excited and passionate about.
I started using some Beautycounter products after Pearl was born. Post-partum hormones wreak havoc on my skin and I had never really had success in fading the dark spots on my face from when I was pregnant with Lucy. That coupled with a few spots I had removed between pregnancies, turning 32, and lack of sleep (hi dark eye circles), I was in need of some help!

From there I added more and more products until, after tons of thought and discernment, I decided to join as a consultant. Fast forward to now, I don’t exclusively use Beautycounter but I mostly use Beautycounter. There are clean/safe/natural products on the market other than Beautycounter. Some of my favorites include Schmidt’s (deodorant – another post coming soon), Dr. Bronner’s, Primally Pure, Little Seed Farm.
