Maybe I’m over-analytical, or it’s this glass of wine, but did you ever wonder why a baby’s bottom is the epitome of smoothness and softness? The literal meaning is obvious, but I’d like to think that the pure, genuine, innocent and care-free nature of babies makes their skin feel good as hell too. As I was looking for products for smooth skin, I thought about how life can be that way as well. Authentic, care-free, and running smoothly.
Don’t Grow Up, It’s a Trap!
Why did we have to grow up? Don’t get me wrong, I love the woman I’ve grown up to be but I could do without the responsibility. I miss the days where I could acceptably experiment and make mistakes while trying to figure out who I am. It would be great to spend every cent of my birthday savings on shoes right now without losing my apartment. I wish I could experiment with a new crazy hair color without raising eyebrows. And I remember the days of not relying on my skincare routine out of fear of fine lines and wrinkles. I’m sure I was criticized back then, but the difference is that I didn’t care as much about the judgement. I wasn’t care-free in the sense of no worries, but I was ok being authentically me. I lived a more fruitful life when I had the freedom to be my genuine self. Or when I had the propensity to explore the world around me without fear or overwhelming obligations. And I’d give anything to have the smooth skin of my youth.
Smooth skin straight from the Amazon
Something about nature brings you back to the essence of yourself. Again maybe it’s the wine, but I was sold on products sourced in the Amazon Rainforest to bring back the youthful smoothness to my skin. And I was right. SOL DE JANEIRO uses ingredients that are sustainably sourced from Brazilian rainforests and used by the people for generations. Fruits like Acai, Guarana, and Cupuacu. All of the products are vegan-friendly, cruelty-free, made in the USA, and packaged in recyclable materials. But the real beauty is that since the products are formulated with these fruits and more, they give your skin a level of protection, hydration and silkiness that only nature can provide.

Lips need to be just as smooth and soft as the rest of your body.

It’s moisture packed as its formulated with Cupuacu Butter, Coconut Oil, and Acai Oil. You’re lips just feel kissable after using this.
The funny thing is, I’m still growing up. We’re adults, but if we’re doing life right then we never stop growing. So if we approach life from a baby’s point of view, smooth skin, feelin’ good as hell, and an easier journey will be ours.
