☀️I’ve been using the same face and body sunless tanner for at least two years. When I get compliments on my tan, people don’t believe it’s sunless. It looks professional and doesn’t leave an orange hue. 🌎 has a clean formula that I can build a tan with. Then I reapply weekly.

A complete skincare routine includes a cleanse, prep, treat & protect step. Each part has an important & complementary purpose.
✨STEP ONE: Cleanse. Remove dirt, makeup, & environmental pollutants. Remember to always complete your cleanse step by wiping your face with a warm wet washcloth.
✨STEP TWO: Prep/Toner. This is an important step, that many skip. A good toner has ingredients that complement the other steps in your skincare routine. Good toners are like supplements, providing nutrients to your skin. They balance your complexion & prep your skin for your other products to better absorb—making your other products more effective.
✨STEP THREE: Serum/treat. Your serum or treat step has concentrated doses of active ingredients that pe*****te deeper into skin. Different serums have different purposes. You can also layer serums, to accommodate for different skincare needs. Layer thinnest to thickest & remember not to apply by mixing your products.
✨STEP FOUR: Protect/moisturizer. This is another step in your skincare routine that shouldn’t be skipped. Moisturizers are meant to prevent water loss from your skin. Morning moisturizers tend to be lighter & typically protect skin against environmental stressors. Night moisturizers tend to repair damage done during the day & speed cellular turnover. They replenish moisture levels with a thicker texture. If you want to seal in moisture, put a few drops of your favorite face on your fingertips and press in to skin over your moisturizer.
***Eye creams are specifically formulated for the delicate skin around the eyes. They’re also formulated to address different concerns than the ones you may have for your face.

Good info for all the organic people

Good info for all the organic people

If you assume that the Non-GMO label is equivalent to the Organic label, you’re not alone.

It can be confusing, so I made this graphic to help.

Here’s what to remember:

Organic food is non-GMO, but non-GMO food isn’t necessarily organic.

Let’s break it down...

✔️Non-GMO Project verifies that a product doesn’t contain GMO ingredients. While that is good, it’s not the whole story about what the product contains, how it was produced, and where it came from.

✔️USDA Organic regulations prohibit any GMO ingredients in a certified organic product.

✔️Organic crops cannot be grown with synthetic pesticides. Non-GMO crops can be grown the same as conventional crops and can still be laden with toxic pesticide residue.

✔️Glyphosate (Roundup) is prohibited on organic crops. Non-GMO crops (such as non-organic wheat and non-organic oats) can be sprayed pre-harvest with Roundup. This herbicide accumulates in your body the more you are exposed to it and is linked to cancer.

✔️Organic ingredients aren’t processed with the neurotoxin hexane.

✔️Organic crops are prohibited from being fertilized with sewage sludge (biosolids) which is literally the treated waste that’s flushed down the toilet, and waste from hospitals and industry.

✔️Organic meat isn’t produced with growth-promoting drugs, like ractopamine.

✔️Organic animals aren’t fattened up with growth-promoting antibiotics. Antibiotics have been used for years, not just to fight infection, but to fatten up farm animals. The overuse of growth-promoting antibiotics is creating superbugs that could threaten the entire human population.

All of this is why the Non-GMO label is NOT enough!

Please share this and share the truth about what these labels mean. Most people don’t know this information.

Switching to cleaner, safer deodorant?

🌺 here are a few tips and tricks I’ve learned, making it a fresher (less stinky 😊) experience.

1. Mask your armpits once a week. Your pores have stinky bacteria stuck in them. Get that stuff out of there.
2. Gently exfoliate your armpits daily. Zap that dead skin trapping the bacteria in your pores.
3. Apply your to dry skin.

For the second time in less than a year, a study of common sunscreen ingredients has established that the chemicals are absorbed into the bloodstream at concentrations far greater than the Food and Drug Administration’s safety threshold.

✨Dry Brushing✨

Used to:
🔅Exfoliate
🔅Increase Circulation
🔅Detoxify
🔅Temporarily Reduce Appearance of Cellulite
🔅Relaxation


🌿Dry brushing allows you to exfoliate and increase blood circulation without drawing moisture out of the skin— as hot water in the shower does.

🌿Using a natural, stiff bristled brush with a long handle is optimal. The long handle will help you hit the hard to reach places on your back.

🌿Work in long strokes upward from your feet/ankles. Use circular motions in an upward direction on your torso. You can move downward on your back.
(Remember to ease pressure on the abdomen, face, and neck.)

🌿A few swipes over the same area is sufficient. Do not overdo it, as you can damage the skin. (Do not brush over open skin, infections, or sunburn.)

🌿Dry brushing can be done daily. Follow with a shower, to remove dead skin, immediately after.

🌿Lastly, be sure to apply moisturizer after showering, to replenish the skin.

✨Happy dry brushing!!!✨

🌿Gau Sha Facial Massage Steps🌿
1. Gently cleanse your face & treat your face and neck to a facial oil or serum.
- 🧖‍♀️To optimize lymphatic drainage, start at your neck and work upward. Hold your gua sha tool at a 15-degree angle (nearly flat against the skin), and using the fingers of your free hand to hold your skin taught, 👉gently glide the tool along the skin, sweeping in upward strokes. Pressure should be mild to moderate and should not hurt. Repeat each movement at least FIVE times for each step.👈 The “wiggle” at the end of each movement is to massage.
2. Start with your neck.
* Use the notched side of the gua sha tool from the back of your lower neck/cervical vertebrae, moving to the base of your skull & wiggle it (to massage).
* Move the tool from your shoulder, up the side of your neck, to the ear & wiggle. Repeat on the opposite shoulder.
* Use the flatter side of the gua sha tool to start at your collar bone and glide it up one side of your neck (the front of your neck) to your jaw & wiggle. Repeat on the opposite side.
* Use the notched side is the tool and start at the sternum and move up to your chin & wiggle.
3. Move to your chin & jaw. Use the notched side of the gua sha tool and start at the center of your chin and sweep up and out across your jaw line to your ear. Wiggle. Repeat on the opposite side.
4. On to the cheeks. Using the flatter side of the gua sha tool, start at the crease beside your nose and sweep out and up until you reach your ear. Wiggle. Do the same on the other side. (Additionally, I like to use one corner of the tool & with that corner I follow my cheekbone in an outward & upward direction.)
5. For your eyes, use feather light pressure.
* Glide the gua sha tool from the inner corner of the eye, under the eye across to the temple. Wiggle. Repeat on the other eye.
* Repeat these steps, but move up and across your brow bone. When you reach the outer corner of the bone, sweep up and out to your hairline and wiggle.
6. Next up, forehead. Take the flat side of the gua sha and place it just under the brow bone (under your eyebrow). Move over the brow bone, vertically to your hairline and wiggle. Do the same on the other side. Last, place the flat side between your brows and sweep up to your hairline. Wiggle.
🌿You’ve just completed a gua sha facial massage!

❔What is Gua Sha & why should I try it?❔⠀⠀
•⠀
🌿Gua sha is an ancient Chinese practice that is thought to assist in the flow of energy to the skin. It involves gently scraping a tool at a 15 degree angle (nearly flat), with moderate to light pressure, over the neck and face in an upward sweeping motion. The tool is generally made of jade or rose quartz; however, other materials are used. ⠀⠀
•⠀
🌿Gua Sha is used to relieve muscle pain and tension and improve circulation. The belief is that the increase in blood flow can offer benefits such as increased collagen and elastin production, reductions in puffiness (assisting in lymphatic drainage), releasing congestion and toxicity, reductions in hyperpigmentation and muscle tension. ⠀⠀
•⠀
🌿Just as you use a jade roller for lymphatic drainage (accumulation of fluid in facial tissues), Gua Sha can be a more effective alternative. A Gua Sha tool is able to act as a facial massage, breaking up fibrous tissue under the skin and relax facial muscles. ⠀⠀
•⠀
🌿Although research on facial Gua Sha is limited, studies on body Gua Sha suggest it can considerably improve circulation. This indicates facial Gua Sha would likely result in similar benefits. ⠀⠀
•⠀
•⠀

✨Double cleanse✨
Why? When?

🌿Double cleansing can help remove pore-clogging and acne-causing impurities that can remain on the skin even after washing your face once.🌿

❔When? At night.❔

💦Tip: Rinsing your face is not enough. Always remove cleansers with a clean,
wet washcloth.💦


🌿First Cleanse🌿
Clean your skin

☀️Use an oil based cleanser.
☀️Oil based cleansers work as a first step for all skin types. Oil attracts oil, so this helps to remove makeup, sweat and any excess oil that has accumulated on your skin.


🌿Second Cleanse🌿
Address your skin concern/type

☀️Use a water based cleanser formulated to address your particular skin type or concern.
☀️The cleanser you choose should have ingredients to hydrate, smooth/ exfoliate, or treat acne. Choose the right cleanser to address your particular skin concern without stripping too much oil.


✨Completing both steps will allow any treatment and moisturizer to be more affective.

👉Follow my bio to find some cleaner, safer oil & water based cleansers from Beautycounter. I can help with recommendations— DM me. 💕

Why You Should Look Into Your Self-Care Products


  • The US hasn’t passed a major federal law regulating the cosmetics industry since 1938.

  • The U.S. has only banned or restricted 30 ingredients
  • Do you know what’s in your personal care products?

    If you are looking for a safe alternative, Beautycounter is on the forefront of safety and setting standards for personal care. We are committed to a health and safety standard that goes beyond what is required by law.
