If you know me, you know that I have been strength training since 2010. I made the decision to change my life, to feel better in my skin and in my clothes.
I hired a personal trainer and decided not only to train with him twice per week for two 30-minute sessions, but also to follow his diet & nutrition guidelines of eating lean meat, fish, and plants. Because I have always been passionate about health and fitness, I also became a CPT and opened my own studio.
Now, I make many different choices when it comes to the foods I eat, the way I train, and even the chemicals I use, and I feel better in my 50’s than I did at 30.
I make more natural choices when it comes to cleaning products, deodorant, skincare, and makeup. While we often think of exposure to toxins as coming from our food or cleaning products we might ignore that our skin is one of the biggest sources of toxic exposure daily. Since we know without debate that some chemicals can and do enter your bloodstream through your skin, you’re better off avoiding all known harmful chemicals (often in skincare products) on the chance they will enter your bloodstream after application.
This is why I am so passionate about Beautycounter. This article from The Huffington Post might scare you as it did me, but not to worry, clean them out of your home, and let me help you replace them with safe and effective products!
Did you know there is essentially no government regulation in place for skincare products? While Europe has banned over 1000 chemicals from skincare, the US has banned fewer than 10! These compounds have been linked to hormonal issues, metabolic problems, microbiome imbalances, and even cancers. Would you put any of that in your food by choice? I wouldn’t, so why would we put it into our bodies through our skin?
