The Power of Seven: My 7 Favorite Beauty Products
June 03, 2016 by Faith Hill
I want you to consider the following ..
.. The average woman in America is exposed to 515 chemicals every single day!
.. The European Union bans 1,400 chemicals from use in personal care products, while the United States bans only 11.
.. The United States has not passed a law concerning the safety of cosmetic products since 1938.
Do these facts concern you?
Clearly, U.S. laws are not protecting our health. Our only option is to protect ourselves, and Fortified Health Club is here to help.
Many of you are already involved in the “Get Clean in '16 Initiative” to switch out toxic home and personal care products with cleaner, more natural versions.
But where do you start?
Replacing all your personal care products may seem like a daunting task. Today, we’re sharing a powerful tip. Don’t try to switch out all your personal care products at once.
Start by using “The Power of Seven.”
1. Routine Clean Cream Cleanser
You must have a good cleanser, and this daily creamy cleanser is great for washing away makeup and other impurities without stripping the protective layer of your own natural oils.
It also contains coconut oil, which removes buildup while moisturizing and softening your skin. Beautycounter is completely transparent with their products, and they have a personal ban on 1,500 harmful chemicals that they will never use in their products.
The Environmental Working Group (EWG), which rates products on a Skin Deep scale of 0 to 7 with 1 being the best, gave the Routine Clean Cream Cleanser an astonishing score of 2
2. Nourishing Cream Exfoliator
Many modern exfoliators contain micro-beads that cause micro-scratches. You might think those little beads are good for removing dead skin cells, but they’re actually leaving tiny wounds on your skin.
And consider this ..
.. If any of your other products contain toxins, you’re applying those toxins directly onto open wounds. Beautycounter’s non-abrasive Nourishing Cream Exfoliator cleans and polishes your skin while sweeping away impurities. It uses jojoba beads to help scrub your skin and organic coconut and aloe to soothe and hydrate.
3. Lustro Face Oil 2
Out of every product I’ve ever put on my skin, this one is my absolute favorite.
When I started using Lustro Face Oil 2, I had three people ask me if I had started getting facials. Unlike synthetic oils that sit on your skin, Lustro Face Oil is absorbed for ultimate hydration. It contains jasmine oil that adds a subtle, sweet floral scent and improves your skin’s elasticity.
This product caters to your skin type. I personally use Number 2. It has dramatically changed my skin, and it has an EWG Skin Deep rating of 1 (completely nontoxic).
4. Color Contour Matte Bronzer
Instead of putting foundation on, I put on Beautycounter’s Color Contour Matte Bronzer, and I let the radiance of my skin speak for itself.
A little bit of bronzer provides a refined, natural glow. It contains Thai bloom flower extract, which gives it a porcelain look, and it has a Skin Deep rating of 1.
5. Lengthening Mascara
I do not leave the house without mascara ..
.. just ask my husband! 🙂
Lengthening Mascara from Beautycounter truly is a breakthrough product that delivers dramatic length and definition.
Plus, it’s completely safe.
It doesn’t smudge, clump, or flake, and it’s a great, water-resistant soft black color that shows off my long lashes.
6. Nourishing Day Cream
This is an essential part of my daily routine, and I usually apply it after I put on my face oil.
Nourishing Day Cream by Beautycounter locks in moisture throughout the day and is lightweight, easily absorbed, and never greasy.
Its list of ingredients include coconut oil and aloe, making it extremely hydrating and antioxidant-rich.
7. Lip Gloss
Last but not least, I always have lip gloss in my bag.
As you're likely aware, any lipsticks are loaded with lead and other toxins, and your lips (a particularly thin layer of skin compared to the rest of your body) will absorb a lot of what they come in contact with.
That’s why I love Beautycounter’s Lip Gloss, which boasts a Skin Deep rating of 1.
It’s a unique blend that is wearable and subtle in terms of shine. It’s moisturizing, and it goes on smooth with zero stickiness.
Better ingredients make better beauty.
Beautycounter is the way to go, bar none. They are unparalleled in their beauty selection process and their products work.
Their street credit speaks for itself.
I’m proud of my products, and I’m proud of the results my skin has achieved by using them. Now, it’s time to start adapting your beauty and personal care routine.
Start with these seven products today, and you’ll see a dramatic change in your skin in seven days or less. That’s the Power of Seven!
Keep it clean in '16.
