In my ever-exhaustive search to be hotter, I'm constantly turning to celebrity greats for advice: it was from Kim Kardashian that I got the idea to (tape my boobs), and from Gwyneth Paltrow that I got the idea to cleanse myself with soup. But more on that another time.
About a week ago, in search of more life secrets, I went to every earth princess' favorite website, Goop, to see if Gwyneth Paltrow had any more health and beauty wisdom to bestow. She never disappoints — she's recommended sex dust, 18K gold dumbbells, and moon juice.
As always, Gwyneth delivered.
That’s right. Gwyneth recommends we chant and pray over our makeup to infuse the products with positive intentions.
Though she likely wanted me to buy some hella expensive products that were pre-chanted-upon and pre-infused, I realized this was the rare Goop recommendation I could try entirely for free.
I immediately spread out all the products from my morning routine, lit a candle, and began chanting.
According to Goop, Sodashi Skincare plays an “Ayurvedic rain melody” to cleanse their active skin treatments, so I did the same.
I lit some weird herbs on fire to clear the air of mean energy.
And then, I chanted:
"BB cream, you are wonderful. You will make my skin smooth and sexy. Mascara, you will make my eyes pop wide open so that I may see the world in all its beauty. I love you, Advil. Never change. Each and every one of you are special to me. You serve a mighty purpose: to make me hot. And for that I am thankful. A-women."
I hadn't been able to find any reference to the length of time I needed to chant in order to cleanse my products of evil spirits, so I stuck with twenty minutes. Then it was time for the true test: I put my lotions and makeup back on.
