I think it's important to take inspiration from diverse sources. I look to Sergio Leone movies for fashion inspiration, essays and books by Ernest Thompson Seton for lifestyle inspiration, Travis Parker for inspiration for snowboarding, Jacques Henri Lartigue for photograph inspiration, and well, hippies for hygiene. This may sounds weird considering hippies are often regarded as unclean and gross, but at the heart of their ethos is a multipurpose hygiene product called Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap.
Known for their cluttered packaging and all organic and fair trade ingredients, Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap boasts 18 uses ranging from shampoo to tooth paste. The multiple applications of Dr. Bronner's makes it perfect for light traveling and minimalism, both motifs that I aspire to. Instead of bringing shampoo, tooth paste, soap, shaving cream, and face wash with me wherever i go, i just bring a bottle of Dr. Bronner's.
