Fat is your friend 

Lately my skin has been super difficult and unruly. I thought I had it good with a new regimen I found at the beginning of the summer. But, the truth is that there are a ton of junky products out there masquerading as healthy, all-natural snacks for your skin.

If you’re looking for the real-deal skin care, look no further than Fatco, a company that prides itself in producing “real food for your skin.”

At first glance of the ingredients, you’ll see a lot of oils and fats, and that might seem a bit odd, to say the least. Clean my face with oil? Uhmm, no thanks. But seriously, it works. Just hear me out.

My face is a flood of oil in the t-zone, petty dry on the cheeks, and sensitive all over. I’ve tried dozens of products, but none have done the wonders that Fatco products have.! All of Fatco’s products are made in the USA and are Paleo-Certified. And there is something for everyone – men, women, and babies!

Below are the skin foods I’ve incorporated into my daily routine. You can make a one-time purchase or subscribe to receive your products every 30, 60, or 90 days – plus, you’ll get a 10% discount.

Facial Skincare Set (Oily Skin) – $60 one-time order; $54 subscription

This set is built for your specific skin condition (oily, dry, and normal). First you cleanse, then you tone, and finally you moisturize. All three items come in a cute little bag that is perfect for travel.

Cleansing Oil (Oily Skin) 2oz – $14 one-time order; $12.60 subscription

If you have oily skin, you’re probably used to buying all of the oil-free cleansers you can throw into your cart. It might sound a little weird to slather oil all over your already oily face, but it’s all about balance. You wash away the grime and replenish the natural, good-for-you oils. It takes a bit of getting used to, but once you start to see the difference in your skin, you’ll be hooked. Fatco recommends giving it two weeks before calling it quits – and by then you won’t want to. First time oil cleanser? Check out this quick how-to.

Toner (All Skin Types) 2oz – $12 one-time order; $10.80 subscription

The fourth ingredient in this all-natural skin toner is apple cider vinegar. It’s a bit strong for about 5 seconds and then subsides. Trust me, you won’t smell like ACV all day! It feels really refreshing and helps to wipe away any remaining, dirt, oil, or makeup that the cleansing oil might have missed. The best part? It doesn’t dry out your skin.

Myrrhaculous Face Cream (All Skin Types) 1oz – $28 one-time order; $25.20 subscription

Let me just say that I was really, really, skeptical about this one. I thought my skin would be as shiny as a freshly waxed car. But that completely changed when I came back from Florida and had a terrible sunburn on my face. It was so bad that I looked and felt like I had gotten Botox on my forehead. This cream was the only thing that soothed and calmed (and mattified!) my parched, red skin. Myrrhaculous Face Cream is really nothing short of miraculous – it did wonders. If nothing else, treat yourself to this.

Stank Stop Deodorant (For Women) 1oz – $12 one-time order; $10.80 subscription 

Let’s be honest, no one (myself included) likes to talk about stinky pits – it’s embarrassing. But when you find something that works, you have to share. If you’ve never tried natural deodorant, I’ll give you a heads up: it takes some getting used to. And if you currently use the brand-name supermarket stuff, your pits will actually have to detox from that before adjusting to the natural kind.(Seriously, have you read what’s in that stuff?) During that time (typically 3-5 days, but for me it took over a week), you might be a little extra stanky. Don’t fear and don’t give up, because after that stage, this stuff works like a charm! No more embarrassing afternoon odors – wave your arms in the air like you just don’t care!

Nourishing Baby Butta (All Skin Types) 2oz – $16 one-time order; $14 subscription 

Along with having sensitive skin, I’m also very sensitive to strong smells. I love that this moisturizer is fragrance-free and if it’s safe for baby, I know it’s safe for me! I rub this on my skin after the shower, just before bed, concentrating on the rough spots (elbows, knees, heels). It’s the perfect anywhere cream.

Fat Stick (All Over Moisturizer) .5oz $10 one-time order; $9 subscription 

This smells divine. I love using it on my lips because I know the ingredients are safe. It does wonders to heal chapped lips and skin. This is a definite must-have.

Not sure which products are right for you?

You can buy samples of the creams and deodorant before committing to the full-size. They also make cute gifts and additives to goodie bags!

There are so many great things about this company and its founder, Cassy Burnside – I could go on and on for days! But don’t just take my word for it, see for yourself. Check out all of the Fatco products and resources at fatco.com.

Happy Shopping!
