I have some ugly scars on my forearm recently (not cutting scars). It's starting to bother me. Would covering them with a bandage draw more attention or less? In general I know moisture and avoid sun exposure, both of which bandages might help with. I wear long sleeves at work so no issue there. But for walking around town etc? I've never used such a thing before so I don't know how realistically practical it is. Looks nice in anime imo.
>>
>>10138867
Bandages are DEFINITELY going to draw attention. Are they deep scars? If not, consider covering it up with primer + a matching foundation. And wear sunscreen so the scars don't darken.
>>
>>10138867
Why not just regular bandaids? People usually dont care
>>
>>10138905
painful and unaesthetic. plus i wanted something reuseable. oh well i guess.
>>10138884
>primer + a matching foundation
annoying but maybe. haven't had good luck covering up scars with it though. fades the color but not completely so.
>>
>>10138867
How old are your scars, how many are there and what size? Like the other anons said, your scars will fade with time. Mine are practically white now and not visible unless you're close up. Have you ever considered treatments instead of covering them with make up? Laser might be expensive but it may be worth investing in if your scars really bothers you. Been looking into that option myself. I tried Fraxium Fusion for my acne scars and was told the treatment worked on regular scars too. Jett Plasma might also be something to look into. Getting a tattoo would cover them up too but that definitely isn't up everyones alley. Sorry I can't give you any make up tips.

Well, I'm 27, and it's time I really start taking care of my skin to preserve my youth as much as possible.


I won't lie. I have no idea where to start.

>>10138948
It’s kinda too late if you’re that old. Should have started around 18 or younger.
>>
>>10138962
bullshit.
starting before 18 would be ideal, but you can still do a lot to prevent further aging if you're proactive about it.
>>
>>10138948
Like >>10138962 said you won’t be able to “preserve” it nearly as much as if you started a decade ago. Around 25 is when you stop producing collagen so you even passed up that mark. All you can do now is wear sunscreen religiously but you won’t be able to actually preserve your youth because by now the damage is done and will start showing soon
>>
>>10138966
Not at that age. Damage can take 10 years to show. So even if anon starts taking really good care of her skin now she’s fucked herself over and can’t undo what she’s already done.

I'm going to assume 'skin stops producing collagen and starts dying at 25'

Skin does not 'stop producing collagen' completely and 'start dying' at 25, otherwise we'd be completely skinless within weeks if all skin did was die from age 25. Skin cell renewal DOES start slowing down at age 30. However, you can definitely still slow down the aging process by avoiding extrinsic factors that can damage the skin, such as UV rays. Sure, she may not look as good as if she started at 18, but it's still much better than doing nothing about it.
>>
>>10138984
>it doesn’t matter that anon is asking us to give her advice to do something that is physically impossible

Sure
>>
>>10138986
>Skin does not 'stop producing collagen' completely and 'start dying' at 25

Yes it does. 25 is around the age where we stop growing completely and like you set cell renewal slows down. That is literally what dying of old age is, your cell renewal rate slowing down.

Educate yourself dumbass.
>>
>>10138987
if it was physically impossible to preserve healthy skin after 25, no one past that age would moisturize.
Except they do, because there's obvious benefit to it.

Michelle Phan recently did a nighttime skincare routine. It offers some good advice.

You clearly didn't read the rest of the sentence and went ballistic off of your narrow interpretation.

People with cancer have cells that are rapidly undergoing cell renewal many times that of a normal person, are they not dying?

the best skincare is to be rich, and afford expensive facial peels and surgery and dermatologist visits. slathering on collagen creams from asian dollar stores are not going to help you that much in the long run. anon isn't doomed because she didn't start applying overpriced japanese lotions a few years earlier.

Any recommendations on a good sensitive skin formulated mascara that adds volume? I have stick straight and long lashes. however, I find that most mascara out there makes the base of my lashes itchy and triggers my trichotillomania (i used to pull out chunks of my hair before but now I only pull out eyelashes out of anxiety/boredom). I'd love to wear falsies but I know that I would rip them out probably within an hour of applying them T_T

>>10138638
From one lip chewer to another: what helped me was to eat gum in situations where I'd chew my lips (I'm an anxiety chewer) and consciously remind myself not to chew on my lip every time I caught myself doing it. Basically slowly training myself to not chew my lip. It's probably not what you're looking for but I hope it helps anyway.

Retinol is the gold standard for anti aging. Thickens skin and encourages cell turnover.
Sunscreen prevents fat breakdown and damage caused by UV rays.
There are also some different specific vitamin serums but I’m not at home and forgot the specifics. Might look it up later if I remember.

>>10138948
Start small, get a day cream and night cream to target your worries( in your case anti-aging, elasticity, plumping are target areas to look for) as well as a good facial sunscreen to prevent sun damaging.
Then move onto adding in serums/ ampoules. Use them daily along with a gentle cleanser (many people use cleansers that are doing more damage than good like ones with heavy exfoliations on a daily basis which will scar up your skin microscopically- nobody needs to exfoliate daily it’s best left to once a week or whenever necessary to get dead dry skin off)
I will say that once you see a wrinkle, nothing will fully remove it from existence but you can minimize the appearance of it by keeping your skin plump and moist with good skincare and doing that will prevent it getting worse/more.
Masks are a good idea once per week as well, use them especially after exfoliating days.
Just doing that should keep your skin in as good of a shape as it can be

Vote #2 for stila, don't waste your time on experimenting with cheap eyeliner. i honestly believe its one of those essentials you shouldn't skimp on. My stila liner has been going strong for almost 3 months now and i wear it daily.

also, if you sign up for ulta emails, they do a 20% coupon off of any item including prestige brands, but it's like once every 3 months or so. that can help if you're a broke bitch

i like some of kvd's products but the tattoo liner is overrated. i found it smears on me (combination skin) and the wing fades within a few hours. my wings don't budge with stila.

Any good sunscreen recs for face and body for sensitive combination skin? Can be separate recs for both. I'm using pic related right now for face, it's the only one so far not to make me break out (Biore Watery Essence wrecked me) but it's a small amount for the price point and reapplication drains it fast. I haven't been using anything for my body, I wanted to get a body lotion with spf but all the ones I see are chemical and I'm scared they'll age my skin. I know to avoid avobenzone but are all chemical sunscreens aging?

Also I'm pale as shit so I don't mind white casts, if it works it works, I just want nice skin.
>>
>>10140340
I have the same skin type and just bought Heliocare Advanced SPF50 about a month and a half ago - it's a little pricey for the size as well, but I've used it every day since I got it and love it, and it's lasted me a surprisingly long time so far. Mind you, I live in a cold, cloudy country and am rarely outdoors anyway, so I don't need to worry about reapplication too much.

Also, does anyone have any makeup tips for reducing jaw asymmetry? The right side of my jaw is suddenly swollen and while I'm hoping a doctor's appointment will be able to sort it, I'd rather not look so much like shit in the meantime.
>>
Serious question: Has anyone had experience using setting lotion on straight, fine, hair? My hair type is 1a, it's very very straight, and very very fine. I really am getting frustrated with the lack of hold I'm getting from most hair products (my hair will tend to undo its style in 2-3 hours), and have started using products not meant for my hair texture, like eco styling gel, and actually liked the results a lot, but I'm a little worried about setting lotion making my hair look too greasy (which will happen if I don't wash my hair every other day)
>>
I have a question but it's more for cosplay than everyday makeup, I'm light skined but my hand and forearm are a bit tan (much more orange than my face) and it look worst on pictures. Does any of you know some kind of foundation/powder that don't transfert and is light weight ? Maybe something like a reverse fake tan ( I had seen that a few years ago on this board, it wasn't a bleach, it was pigmented )
>>

In Korea there are these tinted creams that are popular that can make you look a about a shade whiter, but I would make sure you exfoliate (and consider removing the hair there too) first to avoid looking strange or ashy. The two that I know of are the tony moly panda's dream hand cream (there's one with the same effect but a thinner consistency and made for the face called magic white cream, I've used both of these and liked the results, I'm half latina and half white so my skin tone is a little odd too) and the secret key snow white milky pack (which I have not used).
It doesn't really rub off in my experience, maybe a little bit on dark clothing if there's a lot of friction, you could always hit it with some setting spray if you're worried. If you're willing to spend a little more or looking for something that won't look as white/ashy, there's alcohol activated paints, but these are expensive and you need 99% alcohol to use them, and taking that with you for touch-ups isn't ideal in my experience. However, it really does not budge until you re-activate it with alcohol.
>>
>>10139085

Have you thought about trying magnetic lashes? At least that way you wont have to mess around too much with mascara if you don't want to and you don't have to deal with the glue from regular falsies. If you get annoyed with them you can just pop them off and back on again when you're ready with no fuss.
>>
>>10139085
maybe just don't wear mascara and just curl your eyelashes instead? i no longer wear makeup daily now, but when i was still weaning myself off, something i did was use a heated eyelash curler to basically heat set my lashes in a curl (this lasted all day). this was a lot more comfortable than wearing mascara because there was nothing to flake off and land in my eye

Unless you're using actual bleaching most of the stuff available won't make you actual white if the rest of you is brown. What have you tried so far? Obviously there's the usual vitamin C/niacinamide that can help with scars but also hydroquinone and kojic acid (often in soaps) for lightening and AHAs to help with skin turnover. Don't use them all in one go though and be careful about getting them on mucosal surfaces. Most stuff will take at least a week or two to show changes due to skin turnover rates.

>>10140915
One of my friends just uses sorbolene for theirs (along with physical exfoliation and an AHA cream) which seems to help, like it's pretty unnoticeable now.

does bathing in hot water have any effect on my skin? mine has blemishes on my left cheek (has been there for months, but is not gross to look or w/e)
>>
>>10140530
Thanks anon, that one looks like it doesn't have avobenzone so I'll give it a try! I'm rarely outside except for walking to places, but I worry that it washes off in the day so that's why I reapply frequently. In my understanding, chemical ones don't need such frequent reapplication?

Also, I just noticed today that when I use sunscreen on my face (I skipped during winter) that I look visibly older. I'm 23, and usually get told I look like a 12 years old (not as a compliment), aside from a few small pimples my face is smooth and has that baby fat too it, no creases or anything. But when I wear sunscreen, after a few hours my face looks like it has that grainy texture that middle aged women get and small fine wrinkles everywhere. My face is usually greasy too (t-zone) but instead of the usual 12-year old kid going through puberty kind of grease, I look like a shiny grandma. What gives, is it damaging my skin? I thought it might be showing preexisting damage but the rare times I wear foundation it doesn't have the same effect (it'll cling to dry spots though).
>>
>>10141856

No, it isn't. It's just enhancing greasiness and texture. Nothing will age your skin in a day except maybe baking in the sun or the tanning salon and getting sunburnt. Try a sunblock that is not greasy. I'm not sure because i have the opposite issue (dry skin) but other anons can help you. I personally like the shiny skin and not being mistaken for a teenager for once is a relief for me.

Also as far as I know avobenzone is not supposed to age your skin. While it can break down, it is often combined with stabilizers and is fairly stable. Here's a pretty well referenced article:

https://www.aad.org/practicecenter/managing-a-practice/media-relations-toolkit/dermatology-issues-in-the-news/frequently-asked-questions-about-avobenzone

Personally I prefer physical sunblocks since due to their nature, they have less tendency to break down. They last longer and need less reapplication. Chemical sunblocks need more reapplication generally as they may have a tendency to break down more despite having photostabilizers applied to them.

Bathing in hot water can dehydrate your skin. Maybe your skin's moisture barrier is fucked up? Sometimes that can cause acne/irritation. I'd try some Cerave cream.
>>
>>10141151
I would get 0.025% Tretinoin from your doctor to start out with. Less is more with retinol if you're using it for anti-aging. The thing is, your skin is going to purge for the next month or two and you're going to look awful. I'm talking red, chapped skin, peeling, etc. Make sure you wear a sunscreen in the morning and put retinol on only at night as it makes your skin super sun sensitive as well. I hope that helps!
>>
>>10140612
I've said it before and I will say it again: stop using hair products with silicone in them (look for -cone ending stuff in inci). It will flatten you're already fine hair even more and is probably the main culprit for your lack of hold.

If you're willing to test Korean or Japanese brands, I can vouch for Majolica Majorca's Gel Liquid Liner and Mamonde's Long Lasting Liquid Liner.

Pony's makeup has a good one that features Etude House's playstick 101. You don't need to get that one necessarily - I find the nyx contour pencil to be better imo - but it gives you some good tips.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tesTty49M4c

Essentially in korean makeup the emphasis in contour is to produce a more defined jaw and a sharper nose. The areas of concentration are 'lining' the jaw and defining it, and on shadowing the bigger portions of the nose and making it look smaller.

Most people don’t do every step every day. The more complicated stuff like sheet masks or exfoliating are typically only done every few days or once a week, and are usually part of the nighttime routine. If you can block off some time before you go to sleep for a longer pampering session, and then just moistuirize and sunscreen before work, you should be in a good position.

I'm 20 and I don't really have any skin problems, just the occasional pimples on the side of my face. My under eyes are really dark though and even though I get my beauty sleep, I don't know what to do about my dark undereyes.
and since I'm not a 30 year old hag yet, I want to learn how to preserve my face so it stays healthy and young

how does one properly apply blush?

Im using the essence superfine liner and i really like it, its very black and precise.
>>10143547
I do the following:
Anti-pollution in the morning and primer spray before make up
Sunscreen if its sunny, tinted moisturizer if its cloudy/rainy
Setting spray between shifts
At night i wash my make up off with a foam cleanser and apply night cream with hualuronic acid.
On the weekend i apply my face mask and exfoliate.
After showers i apply a rose serum but it doesnt mix well with the moisturizer though.

I've just started my new skincare routine this week thanks to the gulls here. My skin is usually dry, but it took an even further step in the direction of all kinds of fucked up and I've been finding dry skin on my eyelids of all places. Three days into a decent routine with products aimed at dry skin along with a serum and I've already dealt with the problem.
The real test is seeing how my makeup applies. It used to highlight all of the flakes even though I thought I'd exfoliated properly. I'm hoping I can actually wear make up and feel proud of it. It doesn't even feel like a chore, it helps me relax and focus on myself; something which I think we all should do more of.

For the most part, the skin care/beauty industry is a completely unnecessary invention that profits off of and perpetuates the societal pressures which makes women hate themselves. Change my mind

(but hey. if slathering seventeen different types of goo on your face and body help you feel better about yourself/better than other people, you go gurlfriend)

>>10141155
your problems come from hair removal, fix the psychological conditioning that makes you feel like you have to be ashamed of your natural body.

this is the shit I'm talking about. obvs people have different skin types and can do things to assist their body's natural production of various goo, but I feel like so much of this is self-perpetuating. Taking off grease? better slather this other grease on. Here's five more products to continue this cycle of goo application and removal

manic panic has the best overall quality of color I'd say, but necessitates much deeper/more thorough bleaching beforehand. There are other dyes that are more permanent, even MUCH more so, and have developer mixed in with the color for much greater ease of application/use. But if we're talking purely how the color itself looks I'd go with MP every time.

>>10143009
Good Dye Young is what I've been using and it's free of certain chemicals that give dye that really bad smell. They don't have a huge range yet but they make my hair super soft while coloring and they stay for a decent time.

I might not get a response because I doubt a lot of people have tried to do this, but has anyone had experience moving their hairlines back for a costume w/o the use of a bald cap (I would rather not do a partial bald cap application under my wig since it'll greatly increase the amount of time it'll take for me to do my makeup)

Americans aren't used to seeing mundane items come in cute varieties. The basic wooden cooking spoon that would be completely plain in an American store has a colored handle that says "cat" on it in Daiso. It's novel to be in a store where darn near everything is colorful and cheery-looking.

Look into tubing mascara, I pick at my eyelashes too. The way it works is instead of coating and sticking completely it forms a tube around the eyelash and just slides off instead of it taking your eyelash with it. Think of it like tubing mascara is wax, you can usually peel it off, while regular mascara is closer to paint.

Plus it's fairly common, like I get the nyx doll eyes mascara, but I think loreal, Maybelline, and tarte have some decent ones too, but you can look up more brands online! Hope this helps

I'm about to essentially go into puberty again and my doctor warned me my skin will probably become oilier and develop acne.
My skin on my face, in the past and currently, is extremely dry and flakey and occasionally breaks out with some pimples. But on my shoulders and back, it's already pretty oily, and it has pretty bad acne.

Any korean skincare products recommendations for this? Face wash? Moisturizer?

I got an Etude House sunscreen months ago and for some reason it has been working wonders on my face to the point people compliment it all the time, but I still have pimples here and there.

I just wanna be a pretty boy, not a pepperoni pizza face.

You need to make sure your skin is hydrated. Drink water, moisturize, maybe look for products without fragrance because that can cause reactions that dry out your skin, too.

not taking hormones. It's known that testosterone literally wrecks your face. Even we cis guys are having difficulties managing the effects. If they would give us a controlled amount of spironolactone just to suppress the hideous effect it gives us, or, just, you know, use a steroid with less androgenic effects.

I've looked into it and what my doc's prescribed me is actually not so much androgens but more anabolics instead, and it's a lower dose as well.

still, I wanted some tips/recommendations for just in case... like I said, my skin tends to be extremely dry and flakey, but if it's gonna start producing much more oil, I probably shouldn't be using stuff for dry skin anymore, right?
>>
>>10147985
Oily skin is better than dry skin anyway. You’ll wrinkle less and look younger than people with dry skin who never get pimples. It might be distressing now but you can laugh at them when they’re thirty and already cracking to pieces.

>>10147998

>>10148001
Yea friend, I’m nearing thirty myself and have had dry, acne-free skin my whole life. The only reason I look even halfway decent is because I’ve been moisturizing heavily since I was a teen.

Also don’t pop your zits and they won’t get inflamed.

What are everyone's favorite vitamin C serums? I'm currently using Skin to You's "Vitamin C Ya" since it was only around 7 dollars, but I think it's time to upgrade.

I use this brand called TruSkin. I use their vitamin C and retinol serum. It’s on amazon and has ton of great reviews. It’s improved my skin a lot too. It’s $20 however but you will see a difference.

I have a bit of an hormone imbalance (not enough to be considered a serious problem, currently trying BC pills to see if things improve) so my face is a bit in the hairy side(never got comments about it, but it drains my selfsteem). I have waxed several times and got great results,but some of the hairs are so thin that they don't stick to the wax. I'm considering shaving with those eyebrow razors,have any of you gulls done it before? My hair isn't super dark or super thick,so stubble isn't a concern.

Just pluck it with tweezers. If you can't be assed to do that, then shave, a normal razor works just fine, but you'll have to do it much more than just waxing or plucking.

I meant to reply to you earlier, but your question hit me right in the heart. I'd say it really would depend on what the scar looked like, and you did mention it isn't cutting scars. I wear a self-adhesive bandage on my arm now. It's from the elbow to right above the wrist. I wear the bandage because it draws different attention then what it's covering. People notice my arm is bandaged, but they don't stare or ask questions. When I tried leaving it without the bandage, people were given it horrified, prolonged stares. I'm sure had it just looked like a bad wound from an accident or surgery, it wouldn't draw the same attention.

It's practical. The cost is about $6 dollars a week. I use the Coban bandages. I wear neon ones at home, and have beige ones for work. It's not just other people... I hate looking at it too. So, I cover it. Ask yourself if your own scarring really warrants wearing bandages daily.
>>
>>10151390
A commonly recommended drug store cleanser is Cetaphil. I personally like using Clean & Clear. As far as cheap goes, it works best for me. I also like the medicated green tea scrub by St. Ives. I like to use a product with retinol at night. I use serums because my skin doesn't do well with anything too thick.
>>
>>10138907
Oh, adding to what I said. The bandages aren't reusable whether they're self-adhesive or not. I spend about $25 a month on the bandages. A bottle of foundation made to cover tattoos is $36. I don't know how long that bottle would last, but it honestly may be about the same price either way to cover it.

I was hoping to have my hair a nice lavender color by this weekend but the girl that was helping me do my hair had to go out of town.
I've done 2 bleachings with 40 vol developer and then 1 more bleaching with 30 vol developer.

Pic related is the current color of my hair. I've been using purple shampoo in between bleachings but it's still pretty brassy but it is also much lighter than when I started this process. It's also pretty frail now but I've also used some olaplex which has helped with less breakage.

So I'm wondering if it would be a bad idea to do a purple shampoo treatment as it's only been one week since the last time I did the bleaching with 30 vol. Should I hold off on that since it can make your hair more dry?

Also, should I just attempt to put in the lavender or do you think it wouldn't take because it's still not light enough?

How bad would it be to do the purple shampoo today and then put in the lavender tomorrow?
>>
>>10151957
That's way too dark for any pastel color. It needs another to be bleached 1-2 more times to get to be light enough. Before toning, you hair has to be light blonde, and your hair is medium blonde right now. Purple shampoo is for maintaining ash blonde, it's not a toner.
You can try dying it now, but it's going to be medium purple, not lavender. You could bleach it again, but I don't recommend it.
>>
>>10151961
>You could bleach it again, but I don't recommend it.
Like in general or just right now?

Also when I used the purple shampoo I did notice that my hair was getting brighter. I only used it a couple of times.
>>
>>10151974
That's because toning brassy hair brightens it as it neutralizes orange and yellow.
In general you will have to bleach again to light blonde, so that it'll be light enough to be lavender.
Purple shampoo, is for maintaining blonde hair, and is not a toner for brassy hair. You're not supposed to use it often either as it is very drying on hair.
If you want lavender hair by this weekend, you have to bleach it again to light blonde, tone it to remove brassiness, and then dye it.
I don't recommend it, because you're hair will likely break off after the additional bleach.
>>
>>10151986
Thanks for explaining!
>>
>>10151957
I agree with this anon>>10151961. Be patient and keep moisturizing your hair. In a week you can lightly bleach again. After bleaching, deep condition. Give yourself a few more days then use a toner on your hair to remove the brassines. Try one of the Wella brand toners like T14 or T18. You can mix an additive into your toner such 050 Cooling Violet.

How often do I reapply sunscreen if I'm indoors all day? Is once in the morning good enough?
