MAKEUP III

11/26/ 2018

Jane was now in her 57th year and wore a timeless beauty. Her natural brunette hair was full and flowing and had never encountered one lick of chemical treatments in her lifetime, thanks to her mother, a beautician by trade. Four times a day, Jane would stroke her hair with a buffalo bone comb made by the Mandan Indian artisans who were admired for their full, healthy hair. At fifty strokes each session, drawing up natural oils in the scalp with that organic applicator, Jane’s mane was a local legend. Her facial features were above average, and her skin was flawless. The blemish free dermis hugged tightly to her skull bones, lightly insulated with human facial tissue and alive with the color and softness of a newborn. It was Jane’s mother, a Mandan Indian, who decades ago, saw the damage cosmetics were causing using formaldehydes. Used as a tissue softener, but really being a solvent, it dried out the skin, thus increasing the ageing factor. Cosmetics were slowly turning women into lizards and makeup owners into billionaires. Jane Fishface, a tribal member, used a native product called TIGHTWAD that used fresh salmon semen to soften skin and hold it tight to the skeletal frame. It must be applied within 3 days of harvest and, once on the surface, the active ingredients naturally swim inward. Once it hits the tissue attached to the bone it gives up and dies and the tail bends into a 180° hook. After that, it forms a collagen-like material very similar to Velcro. It is this hooking and snagging that gives it a lifetime, wrinkle free hold. The company collects the semen from fish farms located on Native Reservations of the U.S. and is responsible for reviving many communities from poverty. The benefits are 2-fold as the fish supplies healthy food for the residents and natural beauty to all the recipients who utilize this product without dumping toxic chemicals into the wastewater stream like the mainstream cosmetics do when they are removed.
