With the ringing in of the new year, I vowed to honor my being in quite a few ways. One of them was an overhaul on my skin care regime. I decided that my skin deserves better than crazy chemicals and who knows what else goes into certain beauty and skin care products.
What does this actually entail? Aside from giving up makeup (besides the occasional mascara application when I’m feeling rowdy) and all those so-called miracle creams, powders, scrubs…, I follow every shower with a healthy slather of coconut oil onto every inch of my body. This ritual has become one of my favorite parts of the day. I relish in the greasy goodness.
An unexpected perk: whenever I do parsvottanasana in ashtanga, my legs emit a popcorn-y odor.
