A Rare Beauty Post

Several months ago, I decided to stop wearing makeup. I just stopped cold turkey and haven’t looked back. I’ve had to get used to a new aesthetic. A natural aesthetic. I was used to a faux healthy look, using makeup. (This is how this post ties into my current posts on health; most women, whether they consciously know it or not, use makeup to fake a health look.)

It was rather easy for me to get used to seeing myself without makeup, and even thinking I may be somewhat pretty without makeup. This is because I have a broad sense of beauty. I am well-acquainted with art.

I have had problems with makeup in the past. It has damaged my sensitive skin.

But I do use two products, and I’ve been tracking how they work. I use St Ives Apricot Scrub to exfoliate. And I use Aveeno Ultra-Calming Moisturizer to moisturize and for SPF protection.

I have been using both of these daily for about three weeks now.

This is all part of my Grand Plan to beef up my self-care.
