I have noticeable but not awful acne scars and large pores. It's one of the main causes of my dysphoria along with constant beard shadow. What did you do to help your complexion before Hrt?
I drank lots of water, used Lubriderm lotion every single day and night. I used pore filling cosmetics after some time. NYX makes a pore filler that works really well. I use it on my nose every day on stubborn pores. Also- losing weight and eating healthier helped with just general micro swelling and skin inflammation.
this blog’s first lifting haul! i got a gnarly paper cut unboxing the maybelline primer. karma, i guess. everything came from either target or ulta. retail price? couldn’t tell ya!
• pore filler primer
• eyebrow shaper
• brow tech shaping powder
• kiss blooming lash in peony x2
• covergirl katy kat matte in “perry panther”
• color tattoo 24hr eyeshadow in “tough as taupe”
• lasting drama waterproof gel pencil in “cashmere white” (this rules! definitely recommend!)
• masterprime eyeshadow base in “prime and smooth”
It took me about 100 hours to build this mahogany table by hand (with the exception of the cove molding). The base is finished with Osmo oil/wax. The top is finished with candlelight oil, then a sanding sealer, then pore filler, three coats of 50/50 mineral spirits/urethane, three full coats of urethane, and a French polishing buffing compound.
The joinery consists of drawbored mortise & tenons and through wedged mortise & tenons. All hand cut and chopped. All of the curves and heavy chamfers were made with a spokeshave. A 50° pitch smooth plane left the final surface on all flat areas and the spokeshave for the curved.
I have flaky skin after a while with makeup idk what to do its so irritating & itchy! I noticed when I applied my concealer my chin was cracked/flaky. I have oily skin n dry skin.....Help 😕
With the weather getting colder it’s important to switch up your skincare and makeup a bit to keep your skin moisturized and supple!
Don’t forget to have a good skin care routine! Exfoliate to get rid of dry skin, use gentle non foaming/stripping cleansers, mild products with no irritating ingredients.
Your new best friend: Oils.
Facial oils can be applied as moisturizer at night or under makeup in the morning or you can even add a few drops to a pump of your foundation to create a mega hydrating, emollient foundation that will glide over and moisturize any dry patches.
When choosing an oil make sure to choose one that is specifically designed for the face like Jurlique Skin Balancing Oil, Clarins Facial Oil Treatment, Josie Maran 100% Argan Oil, Boots Botanics Facial Oil (drugstore), Antipodes Divine Facial Oil (organic) and OIay Facial Oil (drugstore). Using some cheaper oils or store bought olive oil can clog pores because they have filler ingredients and aren’t always designed to be used on the face. If you do want cheaper options make sure to get a pure oil that is 100% that particular oil, like 100% jojoba oil. Jojoba oil is great for mixing with foundation to make it more creamy and smooth!
You can even use oils to cleanse your skin! Cleansing oils will remove makeup better than most cleansers and won’t strip your skin and make it tight and dry.
