Help with hygiene. Anonymous 9518[Reply]

I don't really know where to ask this, as I have no friends and my mom would laugh at me, so I am going to come here.
If there is a thread up for this stuff I apologize, I didn't see one.
Anyways, let's start.
I have always had like bad hygiene up until maybe two years ago, and now I really want to change.
I never had acne before but I have a shit ton of it now for some reason, even if I am the cleanest I have ever been.

So I just want to ask what are some good skincare stuff that I could get to help with acne and just in general nicer skin.
Money isn't an issue since my dad is wealthy, but nothing too expensive since I doubt he would let me get one lotion or something that's 50 dollars.

I don't really know how to do this stuff and guides online confuse me.
All I know is that St Ives Apricot stuff is bad for you, and lemon.

Thank you, I'll check these out.

When you say hygiene, do you mean bathing and washing, brushing your teeth and wearing deodorant? Or skincare, like the other anon suggested? If it’s the former, then that will have to be the thing to focus on first before you start tackling acne. Bad hygiene can cause acne, if you get the hygiene under control, there might be a chance the acne will get under control too.

Are there forum/review sites like fragrantica or parfumo but for make-up? Also, are there other places where I can read about new (or /g/old) products that will make me jealous I can't afford them?

Laser Removal cancer risk? Anonymous 9623[Reply]

Will laser hair removal increase your risk of skin cancer?
I just want to get rid of this womanbeard on my face a bit more permanently.
Asking because my searchs were inconclusive, mainly because no real research seems to have been done, just really suspicious short term studies that might as well mean nothing.

Anonymous 9624

From what I understand, the risk is the combination of laser and then sun exposure. I think if you avoid the sun it will be ok.

Anonymous 9625

The risk is probably minimal, skin is one of the fastest regenerating organs with absolute tons of extra regulation on the replication cycle of the cell. In the grand scheme of things you’re not going to significantly alter the biological age of your skin. Also if you were to begin to develop skin cancer on your face that wouldn’t be terrible, there are lots of non-surgical options to treat small melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers (which should be small by the time you notice them considering you look at your face daily).

Get your hair removal and make sure to continue applying your daily sunscreen, you’ll be fine.

t. person who studied laser-tissue interactions

Anonymous 9627

It will, but about as much as spending an extra 30 minutes in the sun will too. They are blasting your skin with a laser that can burn the skin but is supposed to burn the hair and hair follicles, so yes, technically. In the same way that technically eating bananas increases your risk of cancer because it's marginally more radioactive than other food.

The risks of laser in general aren't really cancer as much as severe burning and retina damage.

Forgot to add.

since i moved with my boyfriend and im neet i’ve been falling into bad eating habits. overall i eat pretty healthy for my meals, but i’ve been snacking out of boredom or snacking late at night (junk food) when he leaves for work. with not much activity aside from some home workouts and yoga i’m really worried. its so easy to fall into this bad habit and i want to break it before i gain any serious weight or get worse. i’ve struggled with both sides of unhealthy eating and just want to have more control. i’ve been tracking my meals and planning them out but it doesn’t do a lot for me. how do i discipline myself? im so worried anons i dont want to be fat and lazy. i clean and have light activity (the stuff i mentioned) but i dont have a fulltime job or anything right now and i figure if i limit my food back to a normal amount i can be okay regardless.

Anonymous 9621

It sounds like you need to fill your day more so you don't end up bored and snacking.

Anonymous 9622

do you have any suggestions? ive been watching movies and crocheting but im pretty tired of that and can’t start online college classes until winter.

i walk sometimes but winter is coming and im new to this area so if you have suggestions, indoor ones would be great.

but the idea sounds like what i need. that and discipline. i have a to-do list with chores like cleaning and self-care, or sometimes hobbies, but i get through it all and then im left bored. i guess there is a lot more time in the day than it seems.

Anonymous 9626

You could try and replace the structure of college courses with your own learning, like learning a language or something. You could have a certain time of day when you study which would take up a few hours of your time.

Can I eat it safely? It's for dogs but dogs and humans are quite similar, aren't they? The composition is very good, 89,5% of chicken and it costs less than sausages for people

Anonymous 9598

Humans can have a little dog sausage, as a treat.

But seriously, it probably won't hurt you but it's probably not humsn-consumption grade meat. Also, iirc cats and dogs are a lot more sensitive to sodium so it's probably pretty bland.

Thanks, lack of sodium is not a problem, I can flavor them myself

I haven’t read whatever sources you have, and this is a scientific-yet-not-academic citation, but the perky black nips in National Geographic suggests to me that going braless is the way. I read a Cracked.com article years ago positing this, that boobs have a tissue / fibrouslike structure inside which atrophies in the absence of constant gravity leading to sag. The braless women in the south Sahara are constantly running after lions or whatever and it builds the tissue strength. I don’t want to say muscle because that’s not what it is but it basically works like muscle; if you don’t use it you lose it

Anonymous 9593

For some of us they will barely sag because they're so small, so this is only a secondary question.

Anonymous 9594


Congratulations but how? Any tips please?
I already don't do sports (couch potato life) and have been eating more milk-based snacks, as well as ready-made meals. But I didn't gain much and feel sad about it.

Anonymous 9601

Just eat more if you have to, but fat distribution is genetics

Anonymous 9602

Some people are just like this. Some of us will remain flat no matter how much weight we gain.
The genetic lottery is a bitch.


Does this bracelet match my engagement ring Anonymous 9554[Reply]

I've been looking for a diamond bracelet set in gold to match my silver engagement ring/wedding band to the rest of my gold jewelry that I wear on my hands, arms, neck and ears. Everything but my wedding rings are gold and I felt like it didn't match so I bought pic related solitaire diamond bracelet in gold to try and "tie" the rings to the rest of my jewelry if that makes sense. Does it work? I feel like maybe I need to get one with bigger/more diamonds? Am I overthinking it? Diamond is reallyy small in person. Help.

yeah it's very minimalist it doesn't clash with anything.

Anonymous 9557


Does it tie in the wedding rings with the rest of it though? Like does it make the silver jewelry look more like it belongs with all the gold? I know I'm autistic with this shit lol

Anonymous 9560

Other than the your wedding band, the rest of your jewelry is so small that it'd be difficult for anyone to notice let alone care. No matter what though, you won't be able to tie gold and silver together. At best, you could get two equally large gold rings to wear on the fingers adjacent to the wedding band to create a band pattern, which isn't the same thing, but is the closest you're going to get.

That's not an autistic trait. That's obsessive if anything. The fact your agonizing over your image coordination is actual the exact opposite of what an autistic person would do.

Anonymous 9566

It looks fine to me. Although I don’t really have a good sense of what wedding rings are “supposed” to look like besides the standard silver band / centered diamond template. They both have the same color metal and they’re both shiny, idk what else people are gonna look at. You’re right that the thickness is different but that’s just something to emphasize the ring and make it stand out more

Anonymous 9599

It doesnt seem to clash and looks good.

I'm jelly you have such a nice ring. The only way for me to ever get a ring is if I buy it for myself.


Wigs Anonymous 9437[Reply]

Does anyone here wear wigs daily? I want to stop dying my hair, but I don’t want my natural color lol. What are your experiences wearing wigs at work?

I wore mine for the first time on Halloween so I would have an excuse in case anyone noticed. Let us know how it goes! Have you found one yet?

Anonymous 9510

I go back and forth on liking/not liking it. My hair color is less saturated than hers, and I feel like a warmer color compliments my skin better. But I do like how my natural color brings out my eyes. I also want to try going darker. I’m tired of bleaching my hair, and I don’t want to use strong chemicals on my body any more. So I was thinking with a wig, I can grow out my natural color while also enjoying a fun new color.

I haven’t decided on a wig yet. I’ve run into a problem about styling… My dress code at work states that long hair should be pulled back. So I’d have to buy a wig that can be styled in a ponytail, or a short hairstyle.

Bangs aren’t too much of a problem. They make me look really young, and accentuate how round my face is. But I do like some styles.

Thanks for the input everyone, it’s helping me as I bumble along with this.

Anonymous 9528

Op here, after looking back at my replies I realized I shouldn’t buy a wig yet… The only place I go out to is work, but I have to have a reserved style for work. (Technically non-natural colors are ok but ~frowned upon~) So maybe I’ll wait until I can go out more… Either way, I’ve found a lot of good wig comms thanks to you guys and I’m still learning a lot for when I take the dive!

Anonymous 9558

I’m a liar… I’m probably going to get a short bob for work and a fun colored wig for the weekend. But I’m waiting until I get paid at the end of the month. Also I can’t decide on the color for the work wig. Hmmm

Anonymous 9596


If you get human hair for the work wig then you can color it however you want, wash the dye out and start over when you get bored. It'll also look more natural than any synthetic fiber could.

If you need to do a ponytail, you need to look for a 360 degree lace wig so you can pull it up. Go for a low density if you can or it'll look bulky. Ponytail wigs are the hardest to pull off tbh, can you get away with an updo? Short styles can be super cute though. I'm a fan of the shoulder length wavy bobs like pic related.

what does the star flavour taste like?

Anonymous 9589

The one in the lower left you mean?
That one's flavorless. That's the mineral oil one.
It also happens to be my favorite since it doesn't have any sugar.

Anonymous 9590

How does the mineral oil thing work? It’s oily?

Anonymous 9591

No no. the texture and mouthfeel is totally normal just the taste is a bit extreme. I don't really know how to describe it other than "like mineral oil"
