Could You Live Without Beauty Products for 30 Days?
One addict reports what it's like to use nothing but soap and sunscreen
Day 9"I think I may have cheated this morning: The weather is getting dry so I relieved my dry, itchy face with Argan oil. Technically it's a culinary oil, but mine was from Josie Maran so I felt guilty. I rinsed it off and tried patting on a thin layer of extra virgin olive oil instead. It got the job done but smelled a lot stronger. There must be a better way."
Discovery: Natural dry skin remedies (olive oil, avocado, yogurt, honey, aloe, banana, egg whites, oatmeal and so on) really work. But they make you smell like food. My vote for least obtrusive: avocado.
