Today’s episode was so fun and so educational, even for Caroline and I! We invited a dear friend and Director of Marketing for Primally Pure, Courtney O’Connor, to share her amazing non-toxic skincare experience and knowledge as a Holistic Esthetician with us. Let me tell you friend, you are in for a real treat!
Courtney shares how her obsession with beauty magazines and creating spa days for her buds as an 11 year old morphed into an intense passion for creating beauty from the inside out and looking at our skin as a reflection of our body’s internal environment.
“The skin is brilliant at revealing imbalances within the body.”
On today’s episode, Courtney gives us her take on the oh-so-popular chemical peels and intense facial treatments, what this obsession is actually doing to our skin (the opposite of what you’d hope for) and what you can do to create healthier skin using natural methods like facial massage and non-toxic products that actually work. Courtney also shares her journey with kicking gluten, sugar and alcohol, how it’s brought her so much more than just healthier skin and why she hasn’t looked back (in over 2.5 years!).
This episode is so encouraging and educational and will definitely leave you feeling inspired to nourish your beautiful self from the inside out. Thank you Courtney for sharing your passion with all of us!
