    I too have had continued breakouts throughout my 20’s and now at 30 it’s still happening! i try to eat well and am currently filling up my water glass (thanks for the reminder). I’ve switched to non-comedogenic products (face wash and moisturizer, basic mineral powders) which is helping, but lately I feel like my skin is just dry, aging, and looking old. WTH?! I just want the young dewy look back again!

    With that said, can you recommend what the heck to start with? I’m a creature of habit so I don’t necessarily want to switch EVERYTHING up just yet, but what would be your recommendation as a starting point?

      Right!? Have you ever tried an oil in your moisturizer? I can send you more info on them and my experience if you want?

      • Chelsea Burkholder says:

        I have not because I just felt like I’d be a shiny mess then! I’d love to hear more…something I can just add into my normal moisturizer? (Studio@chelseabdesigns.com if that’s easier)

      Skin condition is affected also by what you eat, which is something we often like to ignore. You can have the best skincare, 100% bio and all that, but if you don’t eat well it will reflect on your skin. I use organic Argan oil for my skin in combination with some other natural products, but if I don’t eat well for a longer period of time, my skin will start looking dull and have breakouts. Same goes for wine, one glass too many and I look like a teenager the next morning =) Try to make changes in your diet, I think that would bring the fastest results compared to creams etc. More veggies, fruits and lots of water – avocado does wonders, both in food and also great as face mask.

        Yes, that’s actually what I started to do about 6 months ago and notice a big change in my overall skin! It’s sad that 5 years ago when I started my business (and was broke) I ate so terribly and didn’t even think to change my diet (which is sad because it’s the cheapest thing to really do). I’m going to try the avocado on my face (since I don’t like taste)!

  2. I would definitely be interested in trying some stuff out! But where to start??

    Unlike you, I’ve always had problem skin. In my mid-twenties I got it all figured out, but in the past year or two, my skin must have changed again! I do have some breakouts, but barely anything. My problem has now become having red dots popping up below my eyes (the area below and towards temples that makeup people always are applying highlighter). I feel like I’m applying so much concealer every day now to even it out :( I used to be able to put on a little under eye concealer, and maybe dab a little on the sides of my nose and any breakouts. Now I feel like I need to wear a full face of foundation (but I hate heavy stuff, so I’m always using a BB cream) and lots of concealer to cover up the red. Any idea which (if any) of the collections, or a mix of stuff, might help out with this problem? I’ve been spending my money at Lush cosmetics, which seemed to help for a week or two, and then the problem came back. I love that Beauty Counter cares about what they are putting in their products!

    Oh my gosh I would love samples! I have been wanting to try beauty counter for months but wasn’t ready to spend the money never having tried it before. Is it still available?

    • Angela S says:

      Hi there, I’ll check to see but I believe it is! Basically if you place any order (doesn’t matter on price) I’ll note that and send you the actual sample set of the nourishing face wash, day cream, night cream, etc.. That way you can try it out, because surprisingly the little bottle do last about week or so!
