Glowing skin is the results of proper skin care. It means you can wear less makeup, and allow the skin to shine through.
I started to use beautycounter back In Jan 2019. I am not going to lie I was a little skeptical at 1st and thought this is just another brand. However, once I tried the product I fell in love immediately. The 1st item was the Cleansing Balm, It was the one step be all. It would remove my back and cleanse my face, then I could use it for a night cream. As a mom of two I just get lazy a night to take care of me. So this was a win/win.
I began to try more items, the Lip Intense Lip Stick, Charcoal Mask, Resurfacing Peel and so on.. The more items I tried, the more research I did. Finally I did it, I created my own type of skin care routine. I still am not one to do a 5 step regimen, but using product that is safer, cleaner and free of over 1500 potentially harmful ingredients/chemicals has made a big difference in my skin.
Below is an example of my beautycounter skincare routines I use and why:
Night- with Make up I will use the Makeup Wipes or Cleansing Balm it just depends how tried I am. If I am not wearing makeup I will use the Countermatch cleansing milk,. (this has a strange texture, but perfect for a quick cleanse. I then dab the Facial Oil on my skin ensuring not to rub. I let that set while I brush my teeth then apply some Countermatch night cream. Twice a week I like to use the Resurfacing peel at night (I promise it is not intense as it sounds) this helps with any age or dark spots, along with acne scaring. It takes the dullness out of your skin and the next morning my skin feels smooth. Sometimes I add night cream on top and others nights I choose not to. No reason why.
Morning- I will use the Nourishing Cream Exfoliator 3 days a week other wise I just use the Countermatch cleansing milk. Next, I add the Countermatch serum this adds a boost of immediate hydration and has vitamin C in it. If I am not wearing foundation I will add some Facial oil to give me glow. If I am going to apply a matte foundation then I skip to the Countermatch Adaptive Lotion, which is light weight but offers a lot of hydration. Additionally, once a week I use the Charcoal Mask to suck out the impurities and free radicals that my skin collects.
