La australiana Freelee "The Banana Girl", de 37 años, se mudó al medio de la jungla y abandonó la ciudad para experimentar una vida saludable, sin confort, maquillaje y totalmente desnuda.
Hace un año, la mujer viajó con su pareja a la selva tropical sudamericana para cultivar su propia fruta. Contó que hasta el momento ahorró más de 4.000 dólares en depilación, maquillaje y champú.
"Sentí que me dieron una segunda oportunidad en la vida. Finalmente fui libre. Durante este tiempo experimenté una alegría que no sabía que existía, con mi nuevo compañero, mi entorno y mi dirección de la vida", aseguró.
Lately I go days without looking in the mirror even once, and I find it incredibly freeing. This was definitely not always the case. As a young woman I became obsessed with my reflection. I would spend hours a day analysing and comparing. Was it because I was vain? Because I thought I was too perfect for this world? On the contrary, I saw a face filled with 'imperfections'. I believed the story I was told by advertisements, that I was born inadequate and in desperate need of enhancement. I saw normal human charateristics as defects to be erased or covered; to be ashamed of. I hated my skin, especially my freckles. My smile was too narrow and my teeth too crooked. My top lip too skinny. Eyes not big enough. My hair too fine. The reality is, I didn't see the real me in the mirror. I didn't see the cheeky girl who loved to explore nature for hours and play in the dirt and creeks, instead I saw the ugly lies the beauty industry fed me. I've now been many months without makeup, fake lashes, creams, treatments etc and it feels so damn liberating. Remember, you were not born flawed, you were born into a flawed system. You were designed to be wild and free, to get dirty, to love and laugh, to explore and experience this beautiful planet - not to stress over your humanness. Don't buy the lie$ #gofreeyourself
