3 ways to get radiant & dewy skin with Beautycounter+


Radiant. Gorgeous. Glowing. This is the #1 request I get from my clients when I consult with them on cleaner beauty. They say…Melanie, I want to look like I’m GLOWING!

What I know they are saying is that they want their skin to look fresh and dewy and their makeup to look pretty and illuminating. To get this GLOW is NOT just about the makeup.

It starts with the SKIN. The better shape your skin is in, the better you can achieve the look of glowing, radiant skin with the right products. Once your inner and nutritional wellness is improved, the more honest that glow is. It all works together in perfect, balanced harmony. ​Start with richly nourishing skincare that balances and hydrates your skin from the inside out. Polish the skin a couple of times a week to exfoliate the toxins accumulated in the skin to give it luster and radiance. Feed your body beauty foods with  high quality ingredients that will nourish your inner glow from the inside out. Hydrate to soften, maintain and detoxify skin and body. Continue Reading

Why I chose to switch to safer beauty | Beautycounter

I have a confession to make. I have been bitten by the safer beauty bug.  I really didn’t mean for this to happen. Two and a half years ago, I had no skin care regime. I had a toddler and was knee deep in potty training and picking Cheerios up off the floor. Who had time to exfoliate? For Christmas, I asked for a skin care regime as a gift and my adorable husband waltzed into the mall and came out with an expensive set from a reputable brand but it did absolutely nothing but make my sensitive skin burn with its highly potent formulation of acids and sea kelp and God knows what else. Into the trash that went. Well…after the night cream turned a rancid shade of yellow. Fast forward to a few months later and a mutual facebook friend posted about a new company she had joined and I hopped on the website and was hooked.

Beautycounter has been a part of my skin care regime for 2 years now. I was blissfully purchasing and using the products without ever thinking about becoming a part of the company. It’s not like I need yet another business, but I really could not pass on the opportunity. I’m crazy passionate about giving back and creating positive change in my community.


I love being social and sharing amazing economic opportunities to women. One of the things I love about Beautycounter is that it can make such a huge difference by forcing you to rethink all of the other things you put in and on your body.  When I started learning about the laws around cosmetic and personal care product regulation, I was shocked. I want to do everything I can to make healthy choices for my family and I’m excited to be a part of this movement.
