Skin Deep: What You Put ON Your Skin Gets Absorbed INTO Your Body

Updated: Aug 22, 2022

I have been really interested and a huge supporter of natural skin care products for the face, body and hair for over 20 years. It started with my own skin problems of acne breakouts that plagued me for several years while I was in my 20’s. After trying countless skincare brands that were ineffective and over-drying, I also realized that many of them were filled with toxic, harmful ingredients and not safe to be used on the body.  

Always remember that what you put ON your body gets absorbed INTO your body.

Just as important, your food and beverage choices, lifestyle habits and stress exposures and reactions play a very significant role in how your skin looks and feels. Your skin is the largest organ in the body and it is profoundly affected by not only your topical products, but also your internal environment – your gastro-intestinal system, your endocrine system, your nervous system, your cardiovascular system and more.  

Just as with every organ system, your skin needs a whole body approach to be radiantly healthy – from a deeper level within as well as on the dermis and epidermis layers of the skin.

I have recently collaborated with BeautyCounter, an organization that formulates healthy, clean skin care products and cosmetics, advocates for better quality, safer ingredients and educates and empowers women and men across the world on ways to authentically deepen and rejuvenate their skin care (and self-care) practices.  

Essentially, they discourage the use of harmful ingredients in their products. You can learn more about those ingredients – HERE – still used in so many products today.  

I greatly respect this company and even more so, I love recommending it to patients, family members, friends and colleagues. 

Several of my patients have noticed and commented that since using BeautyCounter products on their face and bodies, their skin looks more moisturized, smoother, less blemishes, less visible fine lines, more refreshed and just an overall healthy glow as well. It is a ritual that they (and I as well) look forward to savoring every day! 

One of my favorites (of many) is the Countertime Lipid Defense Cleansing Oil that leaves the skin feeling clean, refreshed, revitalized and has a wonderful natural aroma.
