does anyone else get a ton of blackheads/sebaceous filaments on their breasts? how do i get rid of this?

Anonymous 10992

Use an acid to exfoliate. Don't be tempted to squeeze them as it will just make the pores bigger and they will reappear worse.

I just cut a hole in my eyebrow trying to look like Lauren Bacall. How's your Thursday going?

went to the hairdresser to trim bangs and the stylist decided to get creative. i look like a freaking unamused poodle.

>lauren bacall
oh I remember her from various bogie films. She was a top of the line actress. It is good to see young people have not forgotten her and draw inspiration from her.

for me they grew with birth control but i started when i was 18, i take belara. does come with pain though and was only 1 cup (b->c).

no it does not work. it is genes and hormones and weight. the reason weight gain works is the adipose tissue.

no offense but you sound abit young, boobs grow as you age and breasts will be replaced by the firm youthful tissue with adipose tissue as you age. you already do store fat in your boobs but a miniscule amount that increases w/ age..

There are so many butt workouts on Youtube. I do barre and pilates inspired workouts and they work really well for building muscle and sculpting.

I really encourage you to go. Our stories are different , but going to a counselor for just a brief time during my early 20's helped me go form failing an entire semester of college and fantasizing about crashing my car every time I drove, to successfully re-enrolling and getting my life together.

If I hadn't taken the step to get help and work out my issues I most likely would have never gone back to school or maybe even acted out on my fantasies.

I quite enjoy School of Life. The guy has a soothing, re-assuring voice and really knows how to phrase things in a way that gives you key messages to take away and practice with. The concepts and ideas they talk about aren't groundbreaking by any means, but I appreciate the effort they put in to break down bigger concepts into bite sized videos that I can throw on whenever I'm overthinking myself into oblivion.

Anonymous 10969

Is it just me, or is the biggest difference between "curvy" and "average" the fact that "curvy" has fake boobs and "average" has the natural breast shape?

I don't give a shit what they want. I want the chubby body honestly but I don't have an hourglass figure so it bunches up on my gut. Sad times.

When I was around 12, I was homeschooled and really lonely. I meet this girl who was neglected and became my best friend. She peer pressured me into smoking cigarettes off the ground cause “I wouldn’t catch anything and don’t be a pussy” I was extremely naive. I was addicted for a year and now at 20 I wonder if I need to go get blood work done? I don’t think I have anything but I don’t know. I deeply embarrassed by it to the extent thinking about it makes me want to cry and get paranoid

Anonymous 10627

You're worried that you contracted some sort of disease from cigarettes off the ground when you were 12?

Anonymous 10628

I would. Better safe than sorry.

Anonymous 10629

"blood work" is a stupidly-vague term that can encompass a ton of different tests
but if you're worried about something, just go get it tested, so that you can either fix it if there's some problem, or so that you can stop thinking about it if there's nothing wrong
and maybe whatever test you get would catch something else that you weren't even thinking of

Anonymous 10704

the only thing i think you can 'catch' from ground cigarettes is, like, herpes? maybe? depending on how fresh. but i also think you would have noticed by now. i wouldnt sweat it.

Poshmark is great for finding nice vintage clothes.
You can also find things for quite cheap. Often people try to sell their shit there before moving and have these "everything must go" sales where they almost give things away for free.

I love thrifting.
In the US, thrift stores were always around. Even in a relatively small town, there is usually one around.
Right now I live in a small village in Germany away from any major city and haven’t found any thrift stores in my area.
For the US folks, I found that Goodwill and Salvation Army are more pricey than regional branches like these regional thrift stores:
Alabama: Mission Possible Bargain Center
Alaska: Bad Mother
Arizona: The Bee’s Knees
Arkansas: Dickson Street Bookshop
California: Selah Vie
Colorado: ARC Thrift Store
Connecticut: Junior League Clothes Horse
Delaware: Beebe’s Treasure Chest Thrift Shop
Florida: Oddballs Nifty Thrift
Georgia: Lost-n-found Thrift Store
Hawaii: Maui Friends of the Library

Anonymous 10681

woah how did you find all of these? just search regional thrift stores? Anyways, thanks for the list!

Anonymous 10682

Yeah I just searched regional thrift stores. They’re so so much better than goodwill and Salvation Army in terms of price.
Another tip is if you got the means, travel to well off and bougie areas (hopefully with a high percentage of elderly people). You will find SO MUCH vintage and cool stuff. Usually a little bit more pricey but still not as expensive as online or consignment stores.

I think blue jeans are hideous and make almost every outfit look bad. Also hate how people think they can ignore color theory with blue jeans. Blue is not a neutral color, and no, it doesn't go with everything or every skin tone.
Wear them if you don't give a fuck about your appearance I guess.

Anonymous 10657

It's not even an unpopular opinion I hope, but fashion is overrated. Style is what should be your goal.

Anonymous 10663

This isn't unpopular, since you have to be super rich to care about fashion rather than style, and most people aren't rich.
In fact, from what I've seen, people have started using the term "fashion" to refer to personal style or aesthetic rather than keeping up with what the industry says you should wear.

Growing out hair Anonymous 10659[Reply]

Does anyone have tips for keeping your hair healthy as you grow it out? My hair is almost at my butt, but I’ve noticed I get a lot of split ends even though I try to cut them.

Anonymous 10660

I like to apply a DIY mask to my hair once every month or so to help keep it soft and prevent split ends. I use one egg yolk and one cup of mayonnaise, whisk it together, apply it to my hair, and then leave it on under a shower cap for at least thirty minutes.

Another thing I can recommend to keep it healthy is to condition a lot. I only shampoo twice a week or so, but I use conditioner every time.

Anonymous 10661

Friction causes split ends for me. I also make diy hair masks just like the anon above but with avocado too.

Anonymous 10662

Back when I used to keep my hair long, I used to make hair masks from hibiscus leaves. Just stick them in a blender and it makes this really slimy goo. It leaves your hair feeling super soft and moisturized. I recommend washing with cold water, as heat damages hair and because hair is made from dead cells, the damage never really get repaired (except when the hair grows out and gets replaced).
Also, you can get rid of split ends without having to make your hair shorter by twisting your hair and just trimming the ends which stick out.

Anonymous 10664

Don't use any heat products at all. No hairdryer, let hair air dry.

Use the conditioner that comes with home hair dye, it is the strongest. They sell it separately.

Use sulphate free shampoo - look up the product list on r/curlyhair.

Don't pile your hair on your head when you wash it as it causes tangles.

Don't brush wet hair.

Sleep on a silk pillowcase and only use silk hair bands.

Keep your hair in a loose plait when not going anywhere to stop it getting tangled and needing brushed more.

Have someone you trust trim a few centimetres offf your hair every few months. Don't go to a hairdresser, they are always obsessed with cutting long hair short for some reason.

What are your preferences for personal grooming?
How has it changed, or does it vary seasonally?

What does your routine consist of?

(I know there's a pubes thread, a few head hair threads, but I haven't seen anything about this yet)

I use a trimmer on the pubes/armpits so the hair doesn't get too long, I tweeze/trim eyebrow hair to shape them and thread mustache hair. I shave nothing for the most part, though I occasionally shave legs in summer.

Anonymous 10493

i just shave my pits and bikini line, i almost never shave my legs unless the hair on the underside of my legs and calves are bothering me (it feels really uncomfortable when wearing leggings or tights) other than that i wear pants and don't shave them

Anonymous 10523

I use an epilator on my legs, and I shave elsewhere with shaving cream. I previously did some laser hair removal sessions but I ran out of money, it thinned out my hair growth permanently in only a few sessions (3+ years already) but I will need a lot more for actual hair loss and maintenance of once a year after. I just need money lol.

Anonymous 10638

My parents would bully the fuck out of me if I walked around with my unshaved legs showing in the house.

I haven't shave in a long time. A lot of times I only just shave a bit of the lower area of the leg so if the bottom of my pants goes up a bit I don't have to feel self concious about other people.
Shaving to me is just a hassle. I'm very prudish so I only wear long pants and I don't even have a boyfriend so there's no actual reason for me to bother with it.
I only shave my armpits during the Summer cuz they feel like a sweat sponge otherwise.

Anonymous 10655

My parents used to bully me to some degree over not shaving, but I just ignored it and eventually they stopped giving a fuck.
If someone is controlling or manipulative, it's not really a great idea to give in to their demands, tbh, as that rewards and reinforces the controlling behavior.

Reebok Princess shoes are literally the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn. They feel like pillows. I got the wide version since I heard complaints that the regular size was too narrow.
These are cute! Way better than those weird gigantic geriatric shoes.

Anonymous 10648

Can second they are comfortable. Sadly two girls in high school bullied me and said they were “granny shoes” (and tried to get other people to call me that but no one cared) so I barely wore mine :(

Anonymous 10652


Wtf? They don’t even look like granny shoes to me. They look like normal sneakers to me. I’m offended on your behalf.

Anonymous 10653

Yeah, I don't get it either. A dumb girl made an offhand remark that apparently her granny had the same shoes. Then another girl, who was always bullying someone over some non-issue now I think about it, picked up on it. The dumb girl followed whatever the bully one did and so they both would bring it up for no reason (we were part of the same friends group). Later the bully one told other people loudly about it and pointed at me in gym class.

Like I said though, no one else cared or said anything about it. If I still had them I would wear them now as they really were comfortable, but I think I ended up selling them because of the bad memory.
