What is Safe SKincare and Why does it matter?

If you're new to Sprout Wellness, you're probably wondering why an NTP and crossfit coach is talking about makeup and skincare. . Well in very brief. Because it matters. 

Here is why:

Our skin is our largest organ, absorbing up to 80% of what we put on it. Ingredients used in most personal care products on the market contain endocrine (hormone) disrupting chemicals like fragrance, parfum, SLES/SLS, parabens, pthalates and more that can negatively impact fertility, skin health, hormone regulation, development and more. Shitty, right? Right.

The United States is horribly behind the times when it comes to regulating what ingredients are used in our personal care products. Things marked as green/organic/plant-based are not necessarily safer than conventional products. More than 80,000 potentially harmful chemicals are currently on the market and --wait for it-- only THIRTY are banned from use. Compare that to the 600 banned in Canada and more than 1400 banned in the EU.

We deserve better and frankly we can do better. 

So what to do?

Choose brands that focus on consumer safety, product performance and ingredient/supply chain transparency. 

My favorite safe and high-performing products come the following brands: BeautycounterFatco, and Primally Pure.

Skincare Consultations

Finding a skincare regimen that works for your unique body (and life!) can be difficult. 

Just like with diet and nutrition, there's no one-size fits all for skin health either! Our lifestyle, environmental exposure, hormone regulation, diet, and more all impact the health of our skin. Think of your skin as a barometer for what's happening in the body! 

That's where Sprout Wellness Skincare Consults come in handy. This FREE service is here to help you look and feel your best by helping you switch not only to safer and non-toxic skincare products, but also find a routine that is specific to your needs!

Cleanser and Skincare Favorites

Daily cleansers, toners, fun masks, and moisturizers to keep your skin healthy and happy.

Charcoal CLeansing Bar

This gentle and detoxifying cleanser is perfect for normal to oily skin and those with acne prone skin or blackheads. The activated charcoal absorbs impurities in your skin without drying it out, and the coconut oil and green tea extract brighten and moisturize.  I use it daily on my face and body!

Countermatch Pure Calm Cleansing Milk 

This is my new favorite piece of my nighttime routine. You apply it directly to dry skin and then remove with a warm wash cloth. SO SIMPLE! No splashy neutrogena commercial style cleansing happening here. It's incredibly gentle and great for sensitive skin.

Everything Spray

This spray really is EVERYTHING. Use it as a toner after cleansing, to prevent in-grown hairs after shaving or spritz in the armpits as a post workout refresher! Everything Spray also has magnesium which has a calming effect on the body.

Countermatch Adaptive Moisturizer

The adaptive moisturizer has bio-mimic technology to work with your skin and keep it at optimum hydration levels throughout the day. Because of its adaptive qualities, it will also adjust as your skin changes with your cycle! Amazing right? It sits lightly on the skin and smells delightfully of almond (from almond oil, no fragrance!). 

 

Makeup

Volumizing Mascara

I am all about BIG lashes. This mascara is clay based, has great staying power, and builds to fantastic volume. It also gets my lunchtime workout stamp of approval-- no flaking, smudging or streaking even when sweaty! 

Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer

Sheer coverage plus SPF 20 (zinc based of course) make this tinted moisturizer a dream. It's light, leaves a dewy finish and evens skin tone. Layer on top of your daily moisturizer for the smoothest application. If you are looking for fuller coverage use alongside the Tint Skin Foundation.   

Sheer Lipstick

Moisturizing like a lip balm, but with a swish of color to make you feel put together. I can't be trusted to keep lipstick on all day so I love that this gradually fades without flaking and I can easily reapply without a mirror. Bonus: It's scented with real vanilla.  

Ultimate Nudes Palette

Beautycounter recently reformulated their pressed powders and all I can say is WOWOWWOW. These are highly-pigmented with smooth and blendable application. I love the Ultimate Nudes Palette because you really get all the colors you need for day to night, drama to rama(n for the date night in). Each batch is tested for heavy metals ensuring that you get highly pigmented colors that meet the strictest international standards for heavy metals in cosmetics. 

 

Gym Bag Essentials

Primally Pure Deodorant

Finally a natural deodorant, free from toxic ingredients, THAT ACTUALLY WORKS! Praise the folks over at Primally Pure! Conventional deodorants contain heavy metals like aluminum, fragrance, and other problematic ingredients. Primally Pure Deodorant combines a small amount of baking soda, kaolin clay, and non-nano zinc oxide with essential oils to keep your pits fresh and happy all day long. 

Fatco Pit Spritz Deodorizing Spray

The perfect post workout pit refresher! Keep this in your gym bag for after those extra hard workouts when you may not have time to shower. Hey. It happens. Rather than masking body odor with fragrance, this spray contains raw apple cider vinegar which stops bacteria in it's tracks. Don't worry, the vinegar smell fades after 2-3minutes. 

Texturizing Dry Shampoo

Available for both dark and light locks, this is another must-have from Primally Pure. Kaolin clay and cocoa powder absorb moisture and excess oil and adding texture and volume to hair. I actually add this to my hair after washing and drying to extend the time I can take between washing my hair. Plus you know how I feel about volume :) 

Make-Up Remover Wipes

Give your face and body a refresh in one simple swoop! These texturized cloths trap dirt, grime and makeup in one pass. They are oil-free, safe for contact-lens wearers, and gentle enough for everyday use (even on the eyes!). I especially love that they are compostable in your home compost, so you can feel good about using these guys!
