The beauty of quitting

Your make up and lotions make a nutritious feast for acne-causing bacteria. More bacteria = more frequent breakouts and a higher risk of permanent scarring. Moisturizers can clog up your pores, causing nasty blackheads and whiteheads. Rashes and crusty, painful eczema can result from allergens like lanolin (grease secreted by sheep) and carmine (made from crushed beetles), found in lipstick, eyeliner and foundation. Cleansers, toner, and face scrubs may irritate healthy skin if used too often, making your skin blotchy, red and dry. Maybe you’re worried about pimples and pockmarks today. But what’s your skin going to look and feel like after a few months of experimenting with all of the products out there? Or after a few years of meddling? What’s it going to look like when it’s time for you to have kids of your own? Think about the companies that make and sell beauty products. Do they make more money when you’re happy and confident? Or when you’re plaqued by “imperfections” that they just happen to be able to “fix”? Luckily, it’s easy to take care of your own skin without buying into the scam. Wash it gently. Get plenty of sleep. Drink water. Exercise. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Don’t overdo it in the sun. Easy, inexpensive and natural. So forget about the beauty industry. This is the beauty of quitting.

My Love

Love. What is it anyway? This project explores the views of couples in love everything about what love is, how they fell in love, and how it affected their life. Of course, there is no way words can express what love is, it can only be felt, but I decided to seek out anyone who can articulate it. After all, if one truly experienced Love, I mean truly truly, then he/she can simply close the eyes, and while “browsing” the imagination, articulate it verbally. In the beginning, back in 2004, the My Love project was filmed in a “chain reaction” approach, where each person interviewed got to interview the next interviewee. In 2009 this project changed direction to only interview couples in love.
