The Good-For-You Skincare Line That Makes Me More Confident

  • Ask me, on any given day, if I'm feeling confident. You'll receive a range anywhere from "I'm awesome!" to ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. The truth is, until they invent rose-tinted glasses to fit my self-esteem, my confidence levels will always fluctuate. I've had a million and one confidence-boosting self care rituals come and go, but there's one wellness line that always just makes me feel good when I use it. When one of the co-founder's goals is to "stop perpetuating beauty stereotypes," you know you've got a kindred spirit.

  • I tried said line, Balanced Guru, from a friend's suggestion, who handed me Balance Me (their leading treatment for hair) and instructed me to use it instead of dry shampoo. I was skeptical, but my friend actually has fabulous hair, so I went home and tried it. And, I'll be darned, she was right. The oil soaked in almost immediately, leaving my hair looking glossy, and my scalp finally quelled of the impulse to be scratched.

  • Balanced Guru makes me feel confident for two reasons: 

1. their ethos of celebrating each individual

2. their environmental impact (or lack thereof). 

On the first reason: Co-founder Paola Pinto is like your wise first grade teacher – she doesn't use insecurities to sell, but rather would like you to enjoy Balanced Guru as a way to balance and take care of yourself. 

On the second reason: they aim not only to create good on an individual scale, but also on an environmental scale. As Pinto says, "The ingredients you choose have a bigger impact than just on your skin." By making their products 95% USDA organic-certified (which is more stringently regulated than cosmetically "organic"), they're dedicated to making the right decision for the soil and for the farmers.

  • How I get my mind in the right place each day with their body products
Scrub Me (shown in photo):  a moisturizing scrub whose coffee scent perks me up considerably

Polish Me: made with dead sea salt, this scrub is moisturizing and anti-inflammatory, which makes it my go-to after a long day

Hug Me: a rich moisturizer with babassu oil (has the goodness of coconut oil, but soaks in even more quickly) to lock in post-shower moisture.
Grab this set here.

  • How my troubled tresses found balance

Style Me (shown in photo): penetrates the hair shaft and nourishes from inside. Since I have straight hair, I use just a few drops, but curly or drier hair types can use a whole dropperful.

Balance Me: apply to scalp and massage to cleanse and balance the scalp (it's worked wonders for my dandruff!).

Get perfect hair days for days with these oils.
