Why I Became a Beautycounter Consultant

how to become a beautycounter consultant

When I talked about my 7 must have beauty products for fall, I casually mentioned that I had also become a Beautycounter Consultant. Not sure if you would be interested in that sort of thing, I didn’t talk much about it. I should have. I got so many questions about what that meant, what Beautycounter is, and maybe most importantly, how to earn a side income by being a Consultant. So let me try to answer all of those questions!

PS. Thank you so much to those of you who kept asking me when this post would be live!

Men’s Skincare Routine (And How to Get Your Man to Use One)

men's skincare routine

Taken in Greece (and totally posted on Facebook but I’m all about keeping it real!)

Getting a man to do something he doesn’t want to do is tough. If he doesn’t want to do something, newsflash, he isn’t going to. So how do you make him do something that’s good for him (like a skincare routine)? Persistence.

You dutifully perform your regime every night (here’s mine), maybe drop a few lines in there about how amazing your skin feels afterward. After hearing the word “skin” enough times, he’ll start to notice it. Maybe point out a wrinkle or two around his eyes. Gently, of course. Perhaps start with a face mask, share it on Instagram Stories (you know what I mean if you’re following me on Instagram). He’ll come around. Eventually…

So what does he really think about all these changes (aka improvements) you’ve been getting him into? Without further adieu, here are a man’s thoughts on a skincare routine. A word of warning, it’s “raw”.

If you love getting a guy’s perspective, here are more posts from Matt!
