Happy 8 Year Anniversary, Beautycounter! 🥳🥳 I’m so proud when I see for myself the results of our work to make the beauty industry safer… like this right here! ⁣⁣One of the nine clean beauty laws Beautycounter has helped pass is ⁣Hawaii’s Safer Sunscreen Bill. It went into effect this year, banning the sale of sunscreen containing oxybenzone and octinoxate. Both are linked to coral reef depletion, and have been shown to be harmful to human health.⁣⁣Since we launched in 2013, we've collectively sent over 175,000 emails, made over 16,000 calls, and held over 2,000 meetings with lawmakers, all in the name of better beauty.⁣⁣Advocacy is a huge reason I’m so proud to be a part of the Beautycounter movement. Our mission to get safer products into the hands of everyone is unparalleled. ⁣⁣I’ve been doing this meaningful work for four years, and I’m an open book. We need more voices, as we continue to push our mission forward!⁣⁣If you’ve ever thought about joining this movement, I’m happy to chat to find out if it might be a good fit for you. Just shoot me a DM.⁣⁣Cheers to eight years, Beautycounter! Thanks for everything! #ichoosebeauty Day 2662⁣

#MentalHealthMonday⁣⁣It’s been about a year since this pandemic marathon started. How are you doing? ⁣⁣Up and down? Sick of it all? Hanging in there?⁣⁣I wanted to share a bit about my last three months, in case it helps you in some way. ⁣⁣The combination of another health challenge (shingles), pandemic stress, anxiety over our divided country… plus burnout from working my businesses extra hard during the holiday shopping season while I was sick absolutely kicked my butt. Some days, I could only get out of bed for 2-3 hours before crashing.⁣⁣I considered quitting my businesses… because how can I possibly run them if I'm sick so much? ⁣⁣I cried. I rested. I questioned everything in my life. ⁣⁣I felt hopeless. Got angry at my body. Blamed myself. ⁣⁣Then I dug deeper. ⁣⁣I've lived with various chronic illnesses for decades, since I was a kid. I believe they’re tied to some unresolved childhood trauma that I'm finally working through in therapy. ⁣⁣I believe they’re my body's way of telling me to listen to it, take care of it, and slow down. Illness is how it expresses the internal anxiety that I just recently discovered has been humming in the background my whole life. ⁣⁣I'm still not at 100% and I'm still desperately trying to find that balance between getting things done and resting without feeling guilty. ⁣⁣I know we are ALL going through stuff with this pandemic. And I see how life’s "usual" hard times are magnified during this season. ⁣Please know that you are not alone, take good care of yourself, and get help if you need it.⁣⁣If you are in crisis, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 (TALK) or text MHA to 741-741.⁠⁣⁠⁣If you are not in crisis, but need to talk to someone, my partner, @mentalhealthamerica can help you find a warmline.

#ichoosebeauty Day 2645

I was getting strange looks from people when I kneeled down at the side of the Costco parking lot to take a picture of this pretty leaf.  That actually happens to me a lot, but maybe it helps someone else slow down and notice the beauty that is all around them. 🤷🏽‍♀️ Or they just think I’m strange, which is fine, too. 😀#ichoosebeauty Day 2645
