Six years ago I moved to Hawaii, found the lifestyle I wanted to live, and haven’t looked back. I want to share with you one change I made that was simple, saves me so much time, money and energy.
I battled acne for 14 years. I tried every product out there and medications. Nothing worked. Until I gave up make up.
Like most American women, I started wearing make up when I was in middle school. In high school I wouldn’t be caught without it, even while playing sports.
In college I started to sometimes not wear it. Then I went through basic training and you were not allowed to have make up, but once I went back to college I continued to wear it pretty regularly.
But when I moved to Hawaii, the island life encouraged me to be more natural in both my personal care and in my home. I cleared the house of everything we didn’t need, including chemical filled products. The hair straightener, curling iron, blow dryer, and make up all left the house and have never returned.
My skin cleared up for the first time in my life. I felt comfortable and confident in my skin.
I enjoy how weightless my face fills with nothing on it, not needing extra time to get ready, or needing to keep up with products. I save money, time, bad “make up” days, and truly live a natural life.
I work in the wellness industry and teach women everyday to love themselves and their bodies.
Society is full of you need this, this and this. You don’t need any of that. You need to be you. You are beautiful, and if you enjoy the make up, then enjoy it. If you don’t enjoy it, take a break from it and see what happens.
