Hey! First of all, sorry for the slow reply!
Second; okay. No shampoo. You don’t use the baking soda over the argan oil if thats what you mean. What you do, is baking soda instead of shampoo, and then when you get out of the shower, apply argan oil to your damp hair. Not sopping wet hair. DAMP hair. yes yes yes you leave that argan oil in to absorb! Leave it in a day, a week, whatever. Re-apply as often as is necessary! Okay, also. You suffer the same issues as me, crazy oily scalp. Now don’t apply argan oil on the scalp okay. Just the hair that hangs, Sort of from below the ear down. If the argan oil makes your hair too oily just baking soda it out. :)
Um. You can use hairspray, but I wouldn’t advise it to be a regular thing, as it leaves a hard to remove build up on your hair. You’ll find after a while of no poo, you won’t need hairspray because your hair will look absolutely amazing when you leave it natural. :)
Good luck babe. xo if I haven’t made things clear enough just message me some more. if you message me off anon I can privately reply if you like. :)
Hey! First of all, sorry for the slow reply!
Hey again! I would definitely advise going shampoo free. I use baking soda/water instead of shampoo and i leave argan oil in my hair or do and apple cider vinegar rinse in the shower and omg my hair is fucking amazing. It’s grown so much and it’s almost doubled in thickness.
However my hair has thinned out a bit lately due to severe unintentional weight loss and deficiencies so I won’t post any pictures. ):
STAY HEALTHY ALL! :)
You need a 32 band then dearie. Try a 32D. And go from there. When you first buy a bra it should be on the LOOSEST hook. and it should still be really tight. I am unsure of where you are from, so I can’t recommend going in and trying them on stores. But I would not recommend victorias secret, if you are near one of those just stay away.
www.figleaves.com are a nice easy online store. I buy from them regularly and they are very good with returns as long as the item is in the condition it was when you bought it tags and all.
I can do fittings, I can help you if you send me an ask, I’ll reply privately unless you anon or send me a MSG prior asking me to post it publicly. Details at bottom.
I know I’ve been talking an awful lot about boobs lately on this blog (sorry if any of my followers are dudes haha) but I just can’t stress enough how important a properly fitting bra is.
Even if you have a smaller chest, like A - D cup, the importance of a properly fitting bra still stands. Unfortunately right now a lot of girls are probably offended that I just called their D cup boobs, small. I’m talking about actual D’s, a lot of women who wear D’s are actually at least an E or F. But due to the lack of D+ knowledge, a lot of you bigger boobied girls are stuck wearing a D instead of a G. Which is what I’m trying to say really. Even most B girls actually need a C or D but nowhere stocks smaller bands in a c or d so you wear a 36b instead of the 32d you really need.
Anyway, as I was saying. If you have a smaller chest and you wear the wrong size bra, you’re still going to give yourself premature sagging and potentially shoulder and back problems because the bra is such a retarded size. Nobody wants prematurely sagging breasts.
Smaller breasts will still sag rapidly if you don’t look after them. Realistically, the bigger your breasts, the more you really need to know your real size. Because the heavier they are, the faster they sag, and they will fuck your back and shoulders pretty quick if you’re wearing the wrong size. Your backband should be taking 80% of the weight, you shouldn’t have red ruts in your shoulders, because that means your shoulders are taking 80% of the weight, and that’s what pulls your back out of shape as it tries to protect your shoulder from damage.
A lot of women go for breast reductions, before they even know their true size, which is sad. Because you might not have to go through with the horror of surgery, you might just need the right size to save your shoulders and back from all that pain. Its a much easier solution that surgery that leaves you with permanent scars.
I know a lady who was confident she knew her bra size and that she was definitely a 34d. She’s a 28ff and fitters still will tell her she’s a 34d. She wishes she’d known earlier as her back is now permanently damaged from 30 years of ill fitting bras, and lying fitters who will make up your size to force you to buy from their store.
If you want an accurate fitting, or as close to it as I can do via the net, flick me a message. All I need is for you to measure tightly around your ribcage (like where your bra band goes) give me the measurement.(preferably in inches but I can use any unit.)
And I need your current bra size. I reply privately, so if you’re interested in a free fitting then flick me a message ASAP!
You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Being a teenager, obviously my hormones are all over the show and this significantly effects my skin. Especially before my period. I have oily skin which produces a huge amount of oil within a few hours of washing my face. I also have large pores, which are accentuated by the speed at which my pores block up with oil. I find I can’t use moisturizers as they block my pores even more.
Now I haven’t found a way to slow down oil production. But I do have a good remedy for people who get bad acne or have oily skin. I get really nasty pimples on my neck where I can’t see them or under the jaw where they’re painful and almost impossible to squeeze.
So I recommend a bath at least once a fortnight. Once a week is ideal but some people can’t really have frequent baths. Now this bath doesn’t need to be overly deep Just enough so you can lie back and relax, but get your back in the hot water. This will help open the pores. I recommend a few drops of tea tree oil in your bath as it will cleanse out the open pores and it’s a natural product so it’s safe on almost all skin types. Sensitive skin can’t handle neat tea tree oil (neat means pure, undiluted) but in the bath it’s enough to kill the bacteria in the pores and help dry out the skin. You can pretty easily have half your body in the water and half out if you’re tight on hot water and just roll over to soak your front in the water. Otherwise take a flannel and soak it and just plonk it down on your shoulders/back/chest/neck/face and let the heat open up the pores while the tea tree oil does it’s thing. I personally prefer to submerge my face in the water and let it seep in.
Exfoliating before your bath is a great idea as it scrapes all the dead skin off the surface and lets the oil get right into the pores.
Along with this I recommend putting a few drops of tea tree oil into the basin of water you use to wash your face. Only use tea tree oil 2-3 times a week or you will overdry your skin which will make your oil production go crazy. After you get into a routine of doing this and you’ve been at it for a month or so, the gunk in your pores will start to come out a lot easier than previously and you should find your pimples start to lessen.
Its worked for me so I’d recommend it.
The internet? Are you talking about like, corset-like lingerie with cups in it? Or actual corsets? And then do you want plastic or steel boning?
But size 6-8 is like a Small in corsets generally. I can wear most smalls and I’m a 4-6 in the back. My boobs cause legit corsets to not lace up enough in comparison to the waist though.
Instead I’m using Baking Soda x Water to help scrape all the dead skin off my scalp, otherwise it itches like crazy and is very unpleasant. And I use Almond oil at the moment to keep it all moistured. Only problem is the oil is a real bitch to get out. But that’s mostly because I have little water pressure as I live rural and the filters desperately need to be changed. CARRYING ON. I’ve also used an egg with a teeeny blob of olive oil as like., a hair mask kinda thing. It worked pretty well.
I also do an apple cider vinegar rinse once a week and that stuff is fantastic. I use 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar per cup of water I use.
For those who don’t know what an ACV rinse is, it’s when you have a cup, bottle, jar whatever filled with your mix of apple cider vinegar and water and you just pour it over your hair in the shower, sorta run it through your hair everywhere, if you have scalp itching rub it into the scalp, leave it in for like. 1-5 minutes and then rinse it all out.
Your hair might smell a bit just after the shower, but when your hair dries the smell goes okay.
It’s going pretty well for me so far and I can’t wait to see if it effects my hair growth rate/thickness.
I have found rosehip and lavender help. But it is a very very very slow process. Definitely verrrrry slow.
If you suffer from pimples, but not enough to make you feel like you’re under the category of “acne prone skin” Then you’ll know what I mean when I say there isn’t a facewash for our skin type. It’s oily here and dry there and the zits just come and go as they please. Sometimes you’ll find washing your face even makes them worse.
My reccomendation for anyone with a moderate amount of pimples all the way down to almost none: is to use a natural facewash, but regular exfoliation. I’ve found I normally don’t get breakouts and it helps prevent the pimples more so than get rid of them. Once a month I get a small break out, (which is like 5-10 pimples, so like nothing) and that’s just before my period, but that’s hormonal and there’s nothing I can do about that.
But I’ve found that using natural products has helped soften out my skin, and reduce the pimples. Although you have to exfoliate more, to keep the skin nice and clear. But that’s no biggie.
If you suffer from severe acne then a natural product probably won’t work, and you are probably better off with a facewash with salicylic acid which helps dry them out and get rid of them until your hormones are controlled, as in severe cases it’s sometimes hormone related, thus no matter what you do to keep the skin clean, they won’t go away, because it’s not your skin causing the problem. in which case you should probably just work on getting rid of them or getting medication to balance the hormones.
