Sometimes, to stave off thoughts of my mortality, I’ll use a clarifying mask. I like this blue one by May Lindstrom. We did a big story on clean, nontoxic SPFs last summer, and there’s a great one by Drunk Elephant. I also like the ones by Coola and Honest. I only use mineral sunscreens, never the chemicals one. I don’t understand why anyone would put on carcinogens. I don’t understand why anyone would strip naked and put on a Nixon mask and climb over my fence and fall asleep in front of my garage. But both things happened.
I also love Tammy Fender body oil. It has a lavender scent, and it’s smooth and really absorbs. “Tammy,” I’ll say in a casual voice when addressing my body oil directly, “I want to talk to you about GMOs.” And I can tell it’s listening. I find oil on skin really helps the appearance. And Organic Pharmacy has a body oil I like. Sometimes I’ll just use the organic coconut oil in my kitchen on my legs. Sometimes I’ll use my legs to get me to the kitchen. Sometimes I’ll use my kitchen as a bathroom.
