With regards to Beautycounter and skin, the questions I have been asked frequently lately are around, “which skincare regimen to choose for xyz.”
And by xyz I mean things like….normal-to-dry skin, aging concerns, oily skin, acne prone skin, etc.
So I thought I’d share some suggestions to help you decide.

Skincare for Normal-to-Dry Skin Types
For normal-to-dry skin types ,but with an emphasis on age defense and minimizing the look of fine lines, you’ll want to choose the Rejuvenating Regimen.
Revitalize and fight the signs of aging with this safer regimen for normal to dry complexions. A quartet of safer, high-performance formulas helps minimize the appearance of fine lines while firming, hydrating, and improving skin tone.
Items in this regimen include:

Mixed fruit acid complex and vitamin C supply skin with antioxidants and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while lentil seed extract tightens and refines the appearance of pores.

Troubleshooting Your Skin: Acne-Prone Skin
- If acne is a major concern, Countermatch might not be your best choice.
- Adding in a Charcoal Bar could help, with the understanding that during the dry, winter months, it might dry your skin out too much. You might opt for the Charcoal Mask instead, for the time being.
- Try Rejuvenating Toner Pads both at night and first thing in the morning.
- Most research I’ve done says that the Rejuvenating line, as a whole, is best for acne-prone skin. Keep in mind, it won’t be the best for everyone, but if you need a place to start, it’s what I’d recommend (in fact, I’m moving more towards it, too).
Troubleshooting Your Skin: Anti-Aging
I received this message for someone, and I laughed. But it’s so real.
What are the best anti-aging products that will make me look youthful and like I don’t have two kids with a third coming soon?
First, keep in mind that when you are properly hydrated, you won’t age. So…..drink up that water, eat those water-packed foods, and keep the skin properly moisturized. Here are some ways to do it with products:
- The Countermatch line itself was intended for this.
- Countermatch Intense Moisture Serum contains Vitamin C and Vitamin E which provide antioxidant protection.
- The facial oils and serums are nourish and condition skin.
- Many people also swear by the Rejuvenation Collection as well.
So there you have it. If you are thinking about which skincare regimen to choose, I have provided a ton of information. Of course, do keep in mind that this information is all Beautycounter related but that’s because it’s the safer skincare line I believe in, use, and have become obsessed with.
I won’t speak poorly of other companies, but I believe that everyone has the power to do their own research. For starters, you could be as basic as I was and check out the information and articles EWG puts out for consumers.
I can’t, with a decent conscious, recommend anything else to you at this moment. I know there are some other great products out there, but from an entire skin and body care and makeup line, Beautycounter is, IMO, the very best.
