If you are new to Five Seed, you may not know that I love encouraging women to go au naturel as often as they feel comfortable. No makeup, no hair products.
Brave and beautiful Melanie of No New Plastic was our first participant. I fully intend to upload a picture of myself sans makeup, but have been too lazy to get to it. I have also received another photo of a lovely reader – it was so exciting to finally see her face! However, she requested that I not post the picture by itself, but rather in a collage with other participants – which I think is a fabulous idea.
If you are concerned about privacy (as this reader was), or if you are uncomfortable showing your naked face to the world, you can still participate. Just send your picture (no makeup, no hair products) to firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know that you want to be anonymously included in the collage project. I’ll save these photos until we have enough – say 20 or more – to put together a good collage.
Don’t be scared – join in!
