OK, this is going to be more of an aside from my usual politics-centered entries, but I’d like to talk for a bit about an experience I’ve had with my wife of late.
My wife has really sensitive skin. As such, there’s very little in the way of lotions, creams, conditioners and makeup that works for her. Her skin reacts to it, especially when wheat is involved because of her wheat gluten allergy.
But we’ve found one type of natural makeup that seems to work for her. The type she responds well to are those using mud from the floor of the Dead Sea.
It’s odd how it’s used; you rub it in just like any other mud-mask, but then you use a magnet (included) to lift all the dirt away. All that’s left behind, when done properly, are the pure minerals and oils abundant in that water.
It’s one of the few things that works for her. Oddest thing.
