PSA if your family member/someone very close to you bites their lips/nails/fingers or picks at their skin or pulls their hair DO NOT draw attention to it or confront them about it in public, it feels absolutely horrible especially when done by someone you love and trust. thank you.

autistics who stim by skin picking/derma, biting, dermatophagia, nail biting, hair pulling/trich, and other BFRBs are amazing and deserve respect and support, whether they continue to stim this way or try to find stim toys as a distraction.

all stimming is stigmatized, but BFRB stims are especially demonized as being unsanitary and gross.

(you don’t have to be autistic to reblog this; allistics are encouraged to reblog)

some simple (but effective) tips when your skin is not cooperating

hi friends, here are some tips i’ve learned over the years that help me keep my skin in check. feel free to add any tips that have benefitted you :) 

  • wash your pillow case! this one can really be overlooked. i change/wash my pillow case once or twice a week, even when i don’t wash my sheets. this really helps makeup and bacteria from building up
  • probiotics. i know some of these supplements can be pricey, but if you can get your hands on some they are magic! i take one everyday. they support healthy gut flora which helps nourish skin, hair, and nails. you can also get probiotics from fermented foods like miso, kimchi, and sauerkraut.
  • vitamin c. so i started taking vitamin c supplements two weeks ago when i was trying to fight off a cold. the next week, i couldn’t believe how much my skin texture had improved. vitamin c is essential for the production of collagen and elastin that keeps skin toned and firm. it also helps regenerate vitamin e in the body (also super good for our skin)!!!
  • eat more foods with vitamin e. foods like avocados, almonds, olives, spinach, peaches, and tomatoes will make your skin v happy.
  • take your makeup off before a workout. i know this one seems so obvious but i honestly just started doing this. normally, i would go to the gym right after class when i still had makeup on. i don’t wear liquid foundation, but i would conceal or powder some areas. recently though, i’ve been going to the gym right when i wake up while my face is nice and clean and i think letting my pores breathe and sweat without the makeup on has helped so much!
  • reduce dairy consumption. for the past week or two, i unconsciously cut out a good majority of the dairy products i typically eat. even though this was unintentional, i began to notice that my skin was looking much more clear. conventional dairy products at the grocery store can contain antibiotics or added hormones that spike insulin in the body, causing breakouts. it can also lead to a rise in oil production that will fuel the breakouts. experimenting to see if this helps your skin could definitely be beneficial! 
  • do not touch your face ever ever..never. just don’t touch your face. you may think your hands are clean but better safe than sorry.
  • sanitize your phone. !!!! think about this bc i think a lot of people forget but there is so much bacteria on that thing. clean your phone screen to reduce the bacteria that could come in contact with your face!

CONCEPT TIME:

what about a thing where coran, pidge, and hunk take the tech from keith’s BoM suit and reengineer it to make like. a simulator thing where someone can go in and they’ll face either their deepest fears or their deepest desires (or both) depending on the settings. so allura decides to have the paladins go into the simulator and face their fears, in an attempt to make them get over whatever they’re afraid of so that it’s less likely to cause problems in battle. they draw straws to see who has to go first and lance draws the short straw so he’s sent into the sim, with the rest of the team watching. his first couple of fears aren’t too bad, lance deals with them okay, but then. the whole team appears and he’s being told that he’s ‘not good enough to be a paladin, lance. you can’t fight, you’re a terrible pilot, and you’re insanely annoying. we’ve all agreed that voltron would be better off with another blue paladin’. the actual paladins are watching him essentially have a panic attack and trying to get allura to turn the sim off but she’s. ruthless lmao. he eventually gets through that one, after a good five minutes of lance begging and crying and trying to convince the team that he’ll do better, and then it’s on to lance in a galra base, obviously on an important mission, and totally botching it. his mistake causes him to have to watch his teammates die, one by one, and then the scene changes and it’s not only his teammates but his family too. and lance totally breaks down. he’s on the floor sobbing and screaming, and the team can see him tugging on his hair and digging his nails into his skin, drawing blood and everything. hunk has to practically drag him out of the room to the medbay. he refuses to be put in the pod, not so much verbally as just struggling against it, so they have to patch him up manually. he doesn’t move from his bed in the medbay for two days. he doesn’t speak for three. and even after that, he seems to look right through everyone for weeks

UPDATED: HOE PRODUCTS

I’ve been seeing a lot of these posts with the same damn products on all of them and I really feel like we’re recycling the same shit and there’s nothing new to read anymore which is part of the reason I made this account, to add my own remedies and routines in hope that it could help someone else~

African black soap-
Lemme tell you right now. Ditch whatever shit you’re using as a body wash RN and go cop some (RAW) African black soap. That shit is natural and is bursting with vitamin A and E. It helps with eczema too. I personally use Alaffia which also contains Shea butter and I use it everday. Love it and love my skin+it smells super fresh

Apple cider vinegar-
Add abt ¾ of a cup of ACV to your bath and let it work its magic. Its anti fungal and battles against body odor. It makes your hair shiny and is considered a skin detox bath, I personally experience softer skin. ALSO it resets your pH and fights again vaginal odor and yeast infections naturally too.

Jojoba oil-
Jojoba oil is the oil that everyone thinks coconut oil is. It is a natural moisturizer for hair and skin and it works way better than coconut oil could ever hope to do!!

Coconut oil-
Let me tell u something. In a previous post I copied a message on of my followers sent me abt coconut oil being horrible for your hair because it breaks down proteins. It got a lot of positive and negative feed back, some saying I was trying to speak for them or leave out black hair, no that is not the case. I simply copied a message and released it for public knowledge cause im here to HELP YOU NOT HURT YOU! I’m sorry if I offended anyone~ but coconut oil, regardless of hair, is not the angelic product everyones made it out to be. STOP PUTTING THAT SHIT ON YOUR SKIN IT CLOGS PORES. I use it to oil pull, its a natural way to remove the toxins from your mouth and it also whitens your teeth. You put abt a teaspoon or less of coconut oil in your mouth and swish for a minute or 2. Love that shit my teeth are so white. But other than that I wouldnt put that shit on my hair or skin, unless you’re shaving your legs or sometin. Although I do put it on my pussy after I shave and idk what i’d do without it. But coconut oil is NOT for everything.

Rose water-
Sorry for the extremely long coconut oil excerpt lol this one’s short. Rose water can be used as a toner/makeup setter. It controls oil and hydrates your skin. It also has antioxidant and antibacterial properties. Its also good on dry/frizzy hair

Castor oil+Vitamin E oil-
Another 2 great oils. I’m lazy and didnt want to make another 2 oil sections lol but basically castor oil can be used on eyebrows/eyelashes to thicken them. Its also a natural laxative. Vitamin E oil is a great hair/skin moisturizer and heals scars.

Biotin-
If you arent taking biotin everyday I want you to go to your local pharmacy and cop a bottle because beauty starts from the inside. Its a hair skin nail vitamin and boosts healthy growth of hair/nails and keeps skin healthy. I do love it.

Charcoal soap-
Instead of using a typical bar of soap, invest in a charcoal one instead. Charcoal contains a powder called Binchōtan which cleanses and moisturizes skin. For all u natural bitches out there.

Also a lil side note~ for anyone who wants to comment to mine or any other ‘hoe tip’ posts saying “these are life tip not hoe tips” SHUT UP! We know! But these tips were originally for tips and products to be as sexy and well maintained as they can be. Usually before somekind of sex appointment. Let the hoes have this instead of trying to shame it

Yummy Skin Care: Eat foods that are good for your skin!

- Carrots: Vitamin A helps to prevent sun damage, dry skin, dry hair and helps your body to absorb iron which is good for the skin, too. 

- Walnuts: Biotin keeps your skin, hair and nails healthy and helps your skin to heal faster from injuries, Vitamin E protects your skin because of its antioxidative effect and may even help with neurodermitis, Omega 3s helps your body to keep your skin hydrated. 

- Water: Keeps your skin moisturized from the inside and naturally prevents dry skin,it also keeps your skin elastic and helps to transport vitamins to every skin cell 

- Spinach: Vitamin A and Biotin (see above).

Read Part One Here

(I should have used this gif for the first one dammit)


The next morning, you wake before Steve, eyes fluttering open against the annoying morning sun; you’d forgotten to close the blinds last night.  You groan and roll over onto your back, hitting Steve, who immediately wraps an arm around your stomach.  You glance up at him, expecting to find him awake, but he’s still fast asleep on his side, one arm bunched under his pillow, the other now lazily thrown across your stomach.  You smile and reach a hand up to run through his beard.  He looked so cute like this, his mouth open, lightly snoring, eyes squeezed shut against the sun.

My Wish 🙌🏻

May we all find generous male boyfriends, sponsors, and daddies preferably making at least 2 million a year, who want to pay all our bills, make sure we have the expenses for perfect hair, skin, nails, have the lifestyles of glamour, beautiful gifts, and travel that we dream about.

Let them be attractive to us, not dangerous, racist, sexist, egotistical or have otherwise annoying or ridiculous attributes that we have to suffer through.

Give us the power to find them and the strength, will power, and wiles to seduce the shit out of them and make them forget their own names while we drain their bank accounts and make them fall in love with us.

To the Sugar Gods, a-fucking-men.
