LABELS! They aren't just for food.

Our bodies need certain nutrients to work properly and to stay healthy.  When we shop for food, we look at the label and make sure our food is providing us with plenty of the good stuff and maybe not so much of the bad. As consumers, we are getting smarter about what is healthy to ingest, and what products to put back on the shelf.  

We should be just as particular with what we put on our bodies as we put inside our bodies. We need to start looking at the labels of the products we apply on our skin.  There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today. Many don’t have any safety data. This is particularly true of those used by the skin care and beauty industry.  For this reason, La Playa Pilates and Wellness has begun carrying Beautycounter products.  

Click on the Beauty Counter website ( and learn about their mission and the thought that went into their products.  

"At Beautycounter, we’re committed to a health and safety standard that goes well beyond what’s required by U.S. law: We’ve banned the use of more than 1,500 questionable or harmful chemicals through our "Never List”—all while ensuring our products perform and that they’re as indulgent as any other luxe shampoo, lipstick, or oil in the market.
