My Morning Skincare Routine

I kicked the chemicals to the curb about a year and a half ago, and I can honestly say my skin has never been better. No, you do not need to follow a 10-step regimen to achieve healthy, beautiful looking skin! Read on for my SIMPLE yet effective morning skincare routine using SAFE products...

I have never been one of those people who can stick to a lengthy, daily skincare regimen. Of course, I have all of the Beautycounter products in the land. But do I use ALL of them everyday?... NO! Personal care products are just that... personal. It's all about finding what works best for your skin. If you are someone who follows a thorough, 10-step skincare regimen daily, I applaud you. I idolize people like you, and bet your skin looks fab! For everyone else, I have found a regimen that my skin LOVES... it covers all of the bases, it's simple enough to stick to, and I cannot live without any of these products!

Step 1: Cleanse

This Charcoal Cleansing Bar is the perfect gentle detox for your skin. I use it everyday to wash my face, and as a body bar in the shower. It's made with antioxidant-rich, organic green tea and hydrating organic coconut oil to cleanse without drying out your skin, resulting in a smoother, brighter complexion.

Step 2: Moisturize

Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion is liquid gold in my humble opinion. It is super lightweight, and adapts to the needs of your skin throughout the day so you are never left dry or oily. From the skincare pros at Beautycounter, "Bio-Mimic Technology harnesses the unique life-giving properties of plants to exactly match the structure of skin, giving it precisely what it needs and nothing it doesn’t." Cool, right?! After cleansing, apply 1 pump of this gem to face and neck.

Step 3: Eyes

The Countermatch Eye Rescue Cream is our newest eye cream and I love it! It uses the same plant-based technology as the Countermatch Lotion above. If you want to get real technical, hydration comes from an ingredient called squalane, while betaine and phytic acid boost oxygenation to reduce the appearance of shadows for brighter-looking eyes. One small pump of this magic, applied gently to your delicate eye area, and you're ready to go.

Step 4: Hydrate

Face oil... something I NEVER used before Beautycounter entered my life. My skin is pretty normal but leans toward the oily side, and the #3 Balancing Face Oil does a great job at keeping me perfectly... well, balanced. Lightweight and silky smooth, this amazing blend of natural oils softens, calms, and soothes the skin. I drop 2-3 drops into the palm of my hand, lightly rub my hands together, then press the oil into my face. Voila! Radiance.

I'd love to hear from you... what regimen are you currently on? Do you have any specific skin concerns or questions about Beautycounter? I would be happy to get safer products into your hands, and help you find what works for YOUR skin! To review, here are the 4 products I highlighted:
