Last week I hinted on my Facebook page that I was going back to work. Earlier this week I sent out an email to friends and family about what I was up to, and today I want to share it with everyone. I am never one to jump into things too quickly or loudly announce something but since so many of you have been asking, I thought I would share. As of last month, I am now a consultant for Beautycounter, a direct retail brand based out of Santa Monica, CA. The decision to go back to work part-time is a personal one for me.
Three months before my wedding I was diagnosed with a Malignant Melanoma on my right leg. At the time of my diagnosis, I was in the best shape and health of my life. I was running marathons, eating healthy and teaching others to do the same in my career as a Health Coach. After learning more about my diagnosis and having surgery to remove the cancer, I started to educate myself as much as possible about the toxins and harmful chemicals I was putting on my body. I was so well educated about eating healthy, but I hadn’t realized how much I was neglecting my skin, the largest organ on my body. I tried every “organic” beauty product out there, but nothing felt or did exactly what I needed. So my hunt continued.
This past winter I was introduced to Beautycounter, a new skincare and cosmetic line that is setting new standards in the industry. As I learned about their passion for transparency and their mission to get safe beauty products in the hands of every woman – I knew that I had to get my hands on these products as soon as possible. Not only were they truly safe for my body, they were elegant and exceptionally high quality.
As a new mom, I want my daughter to feel confident that the ingredients in the skin care products she uses everyday are not harmful. Becoming a consultant and leading by example is my first step to making that happen. I also want to share with others what I have learned and enable them to make the best decisions possible for their bodies and their families. We can’t control all of the toxins in the environment around us. But I CAN control the ones I buy.
As a Health Coach, this seemed like such an natural fit because I talk to so many people about the importance of self care, but never so much about the compromise as women we make in the name of beauty.
If you are interested in trying out the products, please email or call me and together we’ll decide which one are the best for your skincare needs. Or if you’d like to get a group of friends together for a Beautycounter social, I’d love to come over and share the product line with you and your friends.
