I’m beautiful, naturally.
When I Say Beautiful…
I mean those things we do in our daily routine to clean and spruce ourselves up. From showering, to hair styling, to applying deodorant and makeup.
When I Say Naturally…
I mean non-chemical, to the greatest degree possible.
For instance, the deodorant I use is made from all-natural ingredients. (The irony of its brand name – Crunchy Betty – doesn’t escape me, I assure you.) Also, I use coconut oil for both makeup remover and moisturizer.
Speaking of makeup, I have that routine pared down to a rare application of eyeliner and lip stain, and an even more rare application of eyeshadow and mascara.
I’m really talking about being more than a little bit crunchy.
Why the Crunch?
I’ve learned a lot over the past year and a half about the chemicals we regularly ingest, and apply to our bodies, and how they affect not only us, but our planet.
Bonus: It’s a lot less expensive, when all is said and done.
Over to You
Are you (a little bit) crunchy? Are you (a little bit) chemical?* Or are you (a little bit of) both?
*If the “Are you (a little bit) crunchy? Are you (a little bit) chemical?” led you to sing the theme song from the original Donny & Marie Show, give yourself a gold star! 🙂
