✨ALL THE SUNSCREEN!✨ ✨It's finally starting to feel like summer in Michigan and yesterday was the first time I hopped in the pool this season. 🙌🏻 Finally! It was also Nora's first time in the water 🤗 (besides bathtime of course)! So exciting. .. ✨So I had to bring the whole gang with me to protect both me and my baby. What I reccommend for littles: use the lotion and the stick vs. the spray for your babes. Even though the @beautycounter mists don't use aerosol or other toxic propellants, you're still better off sticking to the other two for gentle application. .. ✨For me, I'm ALL about the tinted sunscreen mist right now. I haven't really gotten any color yet, so the fact that this gives me a little color while still protecting me from the sun?! Yes please!! 🤗😍 .. ✨ Yesterday was also the first time I tried out the new Aftersun Cooling Gel and oooohhwee! It feels so nice, refreshes your skin after being outside and sun-soaked and it smells like HEAVEN! Coconuty-tropical goodness. 🌴💕💕 .. ✨When choosing your sunscreen this year, stick to safer for yourself and your whole family. Beautycounter's is a safer mineral sunscreen, protects against UVA, UVB and Blue Light rays, is water resistant and made with zinc oxide versus oxybenzone or avobenzone (what you want to avoid!!) .. ✨I can help you get stocked up the right way for summer! Message me if you want to try any of these suncare goodies! 😎🔆

Lovin this travel size sunscreen & using it on repeat. Here are some helpful tips to look out for when buying sunscreen: ☀️ Choose Mineral not Chemical ☀️ Look for Broad Spectrum ☀️ Paraben FREE - It is not enough if the bottle says PARABEN Free... turn it over and look at the ingredients, if it ends in the word PARABEN.... not good. ☀️ OXYBENZONE Free (actually this ingredient is banned in Hawaii but is in most sunscreens. Endocrine disruptor = no thank you) ☀️ Avoid Vitamin A (Retinol) ☀️ Nix the Aerosol (this one is spray but uses a air technology) Maybe you’ve seen me rave about the new tinted sunscreen - it’s the same formula as this one but goes on tan 🙌🏻 Link to shop in bio. If you’re a Beautycounter sunscreen user ~ drop your favorite in the comments 🤗 I’d love to know!
Protection from ultraviolet rays is ultra important. But not all sunscreens are created equal! From the NY Post: “Chemicals long used in sunblock are under new scrutiny — and may signal it’s time to start reaching for alternatives. Some of these chemicals enter the bloodstream at a rate that should require additional safety data, according to a preliminary study published earlier this month in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Last week, the Environmental Working Group released its annual guide to safe sunscreens. The watchdog group’s researchers found that two-thirds of the more than 1,300 sunscreens on the market either don’t provide enough protection or contain ingredients that are especially worrisome — such as oxybenzone, which may have hormone-disrupting qualities dangerous for kids. You can type in the name of your sunscreen at EWG.org to see how it ranked and get a full ingredient breakdown. Mineral sunscreens, as opposed to chemical sunscreens, are a better bet, says Upper East Side dermatologist Michele Green. They contain zinc oxide and titanium dioxide — which the FDA has deemed generally safe and effective.” . (And guess whose mineral sunscreen made the fav list in this article? Beautycounter, of course!) #saferbeauty#saferliving#safersunscreen#sunprotection#beautycounter#countersun

A group of 70+ women gathered this weekend to focus on wellness and mental health with a challenge to detox from social media and technology.

In honor of Pride Month, I'm hosting a fundraiser for an organization called Equality Texas. Equality Texas works to secure full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer Texans through political action, education, community organizing, and collaboration. Their work is needed now more than ever, with the recent passage of TX Senate Bill 1978, which has one aim only: to undermine LGBTQ equality and promote anti-LGBTQ messages. The rights of this community is constantly under attack here in Texas, where I live. The current federal administration has only further encouraged and paved the way for even more hate-fueled legislation and discrimination. No one should have to worry about being fired from a job, evicted from an apartment, or turned away at the corner store because of who they are or whom they love. But in Texas, discrimination against someone on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression still isn’t prohibited by law. In the last legislative session, more than two dozen anti-LGBTQ bills were filed. While Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick’s divisive “bathroom bill” was thankfully defeated, a religious exemption bill that permits state-funded foster-care and adoption agencies to discriminate was signed into law. I want to do my part to fight back and I'd love if you'd join me. 25% of every Beautycounter purchase (my entire commission!) June 20th - 31st will be donated to Equality Texas to fund their efforts in making sure that "y'all" means ALL. Simply use this special link: bit.ly/BC4EqualityTexas (case sensitive) and shop away! I'll do the rest & keep you updated on our progress.

Happy 1st day of summer!!!!!!! 😊☀️🎉 As you all know, I’m a California sunshine lovin’ girl! 💁🏻♀️Nothing makes me as happy as sunshine☀️❤️☀️ It’s super important to me to get my vitamin D in but it’s also important to me not to burn. The last few years I’ve realized most sunscreen is a bunch of BS.😳🤬 We actually need sun and should not be blocking it all of the time. And most sunscreen is soooooo toxic, and HELLO, it is entering your skin/ bloodstream! That’s scary stuff people! ☠️☠️☠️ So what do I do? Well if I’m hiking or working out early I let my body get that morning sun😊 But there are times of day where it actually is harmful. So, If I’m hiking or outside during those peak hours I like to make sure I’m protected and also toxin free. That’s when I use my safer sunscreen from BeautyCounter ☀️💓I Absolutely LOVE this stuff! In my quest to find safe sunscreen I have tried a few other brands and NONE compared to this! #realtalk To celebrate the beginning of summer I am gonna giveaway a 3 ounce spray (pictured) to one of you! 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉 ✨Here is what you need to do to enter: 1.

Sooo after last night’s swim meet I had to “decorate” Wesley’s shirt for today’s soccer camp. After a very poor decorating job with a black sharpie I left it on the kitchen counter overnight. Only to find the ink had transferred to the stone counter top this morning.... Actually, Dusty found it & wasn’t happy. Household cleaners didn’t work but my friend recently told me that she used a spray sunscreen with oxybenzone (☠️) in it to get permanent marker off the leather seat in her car. Soooo I texted my friend (who will remain anonymous and is known to have the ☠️ sunscreen) And borrowed it and voila it worked. Soooo I guess I’m glad she didn’t listen to me about the dang sunscreen 🤦🏼♀️ (not really). This stuff kills the coral reef & the sea life that depends on it 🐠 🌱 so its no wonder it can get out permanent marker. Sooo what does it do to your body when you put it on your largest organ? Among other things, it messes with your endocrine system, your hormones - terrible for you, your children’s developing bodies & the environment, but thanks for saving my countertop. #beautycounter#switchtosafer#oxybenzonefree#savethereefs#safersunscreen#butmycounterisclear
Like most teenagers, I rubbed oil on my body and laid out in the sun, never wore sunscreen, and tried to get that tanned summer look. I also put lemon juice in my hair and laid out for “highlights,” but that’s a story for another day. 🙄 ⠀ ⠀ HAVE YOU SEEN ME? 🤣 I do not have the complexion for tanning easily, which means I got BURNED. I remember one sunburn I got from rolling up my t-shirt sleeves while riding on the back of my brother’s motorbike going over Logan’s pass in Glacier National Park. I was on the bike all day. Sun beating down. And my shoulders got sunburned so badly they blistered. 🔥 ⠀ ⠀ You would think that I learned my lesson, but I also have had blisters on my nose from sunburns. And that wasn’t the last time my shoulders got it bad. 🤦🏼♀️⠀ ⠀ Obviously my awareness has been heightened about how much my kids and I are out in the sun and when we last applied sunscreen since moving to Arizona. 🌵 ⠀ ⠀ BUT- I am EXTRA cautious of the TYPE of sunscreen I buy. Because it angers me that companies are allowed to put the things they do in products meant to be rubbed on my kids’ skin! Skin is so absorbent, and we are slathering them down with toxins over and over all summer long. 😭⠀ ⠀ I have always shared products that I love that are safer, and since it’s summer time, I feel it fitting to share one of the best sunscreens I have found out there. ☀️ ⠀ ⠀ I love this one because not only do I personally know one of the men who invented it and I love supporting friends, but I have learned all about it and can’t believe someone didn’t think of this sooner ! It’s not just sunscreen, it’s actually helping repair some of the damage you’ve already done (there is hope for me). It’s a healing lotion and sun protection all in one. ⠀ ⠀ Some things I love about it:⠀ ⠀ 🌱 there are no toxic ingreds like parabens, oxybenzone, or etc⠀ ⠀ 🌱 there is no water- this stuff is
I tried stand up paddle boarding, #sup , yesterday and it was sooo much fun! I used my @beautycounter #countersun face stick and mineral mist along with a swim shirt to protect against the bright Texas sun! No sunburn for me even after an hour in direct sun and falling into the lake. #safersunscreen#reefsafesunscreen
Want your makeup to look beautiful? Take care of your skin! Daily sun protection is such an important part of skin care, and it is one of the most important areas in the personal care industry to choose safer products. Look for mineral vs chemical sunscreens to reduce exposure to questionable ingredients. Look for zinc oxide as one of the primary ingredients, preferably in 15% to 20% concentrations. @coola @drunkelephant @suntegrity are all fantastic clean beauty brands with great sun protection products. That’s a Suntegrity Lip Color with spf - perfect for long summer days in the sun! ☀️ Do you use any of these?
