A quick hello and happy Wednesday to you!
I wanted to post about my recent experiment with The Naked Face Project. Last spring, I heard about the project through Caitlin of Healthy Tipping Point (also the woman behind Operation Beautiful).
For the last few years, I've worn makeup almost daily to work for a few reasons: 1) I like the way I feel when I'm wearing it. 2) Makeup is fun. 3) It can help me look more awake and put together.
However, last week I decided my face needed a little break from makeup so I went to work with only a little SPF moisturizer on.
And you know what? It wasn't so bad!
Sure, some days I had darker under eyes than others, but my skin also felt lighter and fresher overall. This week, I've gone mostly "naked face" simply brushing on a little bronzer and mascara.
I can't say that it's made me feel that I'll never wear makeup again, but it has proved that I don't need to wear it. Plus, it saves a good 5 min!
Do you go "naked face" to work? Are there other beauty regimes you've ditched because you decided you just don't need to do them?
YOGA! Lately, I've been taking advantage of my yoga mat at home. It's nice to realize you don't have to go to a class. Yes, I typically prefer attending a class, but it's the perfect solution when you don't have a lot of time or $$. And not a lot of studios offer a 30 min session at 10 pm! ;)
