shaving irritation

anonymous asked:

I really want to shave my legs but I have really thick leg hair and I get horrible razor burn (I know bc I've shaved just my thighs before). Is there any way I can either avoid razor burn or get rid of it? Or maybe waxing??? Idk what to do

You could give waxing a shot, but if you have sensitive skin you may be left with some bumpy red spots for a few hours to a few days. Otherwise you could try epilation, which in my experience has left my skin less irritated than shaving and waxing. However, out of all these options I have found that waxing produces the best results for me, so feel free to try out various different methods (like different waxes and whatnot) and find what works best for you. 

I hope this helps!

🙋🏾HOW TO LIGHTEN DARK UNDERARMS!🌔
🌚It happens. Here’s how to prevent/treat it and get fresh glowing pits!🌝
🔑MAJOR KEY! STOP SHAVING! esp if u are brown! brown skin hyper-pigments easily when it is damaged and shaving irritates/damages skin! WAX/THREAD/LASER instead! 🕊Use this detox and bleaching/brightening underarm mask to lighten up any dark pigmentation

ALL YOU NEED:
✅HONEY - 1TBS (measurements dont really matter- you can make more or less of this if you want. Store extras in the fridge -make sure no one eats it)
✅ACTIVATED CHARCOAL - I used the powder of 3 pills ^^^MIX TOGETHER^^^
🎣APPLY TO CLEAN AND DRY UNDERARM
⏳LEAVE ON FOR 20 MINS SO IT CAN WORK ITS MAGIC- u can relax your arms. Don’t need to keep them up like a 🐒
🚿WIPE OFF WITH WARM WASHCLOTH ORRRR IN THE SHOWER
👌🏾DO THIS AS OFTEN AS YOU CAN TO GET THE BEST RESULTS!
😱WHY THIS WORKS!!😱
🤓Honey is a natural bleaching agent. It releases hydrogen peroxide (bleach) which will lighten the darkness
🤓Honey is also a great anti-bacterial and moisturizer (dry skin can give the illusion of uneven skin so itll help moisturize it)
🤓Activated Charcoal is a detox - so it cleans/pulls out all the impurities/toxins and nasties from the underarm leaving you smelling FRESH - if natural deodorants dont work for you, try this mask and THEN switch to a natural deodorant and youll be so fresh and so clean
SHARING IS CARING + GIVE THIS VIDEO A LIKE! Help a sistaaa outttt ☺️☺️

This is for Joshua, random question. How often do you shave your face and what brand of cream do you use for it?

Ahahahaha ~

Usually once per week , I like some stubbles, so if you want a completely clean shave , you will need to shave every 2 days or so, depending on your hair color.

Shick Hydro Gel sensitive skin ~ I would recommend sensitive skin formula since the skin ain’t used to facial shaving and could get irritated.

Another note: Some type of skins won’t tolerate long facial hair either( prone to pimples and folliculitis)

Vanilla Olive Oil Sugar Scrub

  • ½ cup granulated (white) sugar
  • 2 cups Turbinado sugar (sugar in the raw)
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla extract (or your favorite essential oil)

Directions: Combine the two sugars in a bowl and mix to incorporate. Add olive oil and stir. Mix in honey and vanilla. Store in an airtight jar and enjoy!

* This is a coarse scrub, if you would like a more gentle scrub you can substitute brown sugar for the turbinado sugar.
* Always exfoliate before shaving to prevent irritation and achieve a better shave.
* You may add more olive oil to your jar after packing if you desire a different consistency.
* Oil will settle in the jar so stir before using.
* I do not recommend using this scrub on your face. It is intended for use on the body only.

Where Has My Mind Gone November 2016

I wish I could just go on a long walk for the rest of my life
I wish shaving didn’t irritate my face so much
I wish I wasn’t so sensitive
But I am
And loud unmetered drums play on
And I hear someone yelling outside my open window
And the T.V. stammers on like a stupid child

Everyone hears what they want to hear
No one says what they want to say
I don’t think my parents like me
I don’t think most people like me
But I stupidly stammer on
And the streets are always empty at 3 A.M.
And I use it to my advantage
The country’s at war with itself
The earth is at war with itself
I’m at war with myself
Most everything I know at war with itself

I’ve been using a computer lately to write poetry and feel bad for my journal
I’ve been ignoring my body lately and feel bad for my feet

A sad one man band slowly marches down the street at 4 A.M.
I dedicate a thousand songs to things imaginary
The boogie man’s too busy crying into his mirror to haunt you
‘There’s a lot we have to do now’
Go fuck yourself

Beauty tip of the week <3

So I’ve been lacking lately and I haven’t posted much but here it is :)

How to get rid of dark armpits (or any part of your skin; knees, elbows, yah know?) in 3 minutes ;)

What you’ll need:

Peroxide (vol. 30) | 1 tablespoon

Magnesium Carbonate | 1 tablespoon

Mix it till you get the basic paste.

Now, make sure you don’t shave before ! It will irritate your skin, do it after or if you have, wait 24 hours :)

Apply it on the area for 2-3 minutes and then clean it off with a warm wet cloth. Trust me, the results are amazing ! Do this once every other week till you get the desired results and BAM, fab not dark skin haha

Stay pretty, loves 💁😘

The Vagina Monologues

Has anyone read or seen this play? It’s fascinating and really a must-see. One part struck me as very interesting in a BDSM sort of way…

Most of the monologues consist of taking back the word vagina, reclaiming the word cunt, loving your vagina instead of fearing or hating it, believing you are beautiful because of it. One monologue talks about how if a man loves pussy, marry him. Because why should we cover ourselves with things to make our vaginas smell like “rain” or taste different? Shouldn’t people just love pussy?

The one that really got to me (other than the ones that spoke about childbirth being beautiful or the horrible ways women are raped) was the monologue of a woman wondering why she would need to shave. Shouldn’t her husband love her hair? Shaving gave her red bumps, scratchiness, irritation. Shaving made her look like a child instead of a woman who had hair as proof of womanhood. She did it for her husband and hated it, hated the act of sex because of it, and told him. They ended up in therapy, and he told her “if you love me you’ll do it”, so she did again. And hated it.

She decided to stop shaving. Her husband cheated on her. Now I’m not saying they are necessarily a result of the other, but surely communication between partners is important. And… why do we see images of shaved women, as if it infantiles them? (Don’t answer; the real reason is the porn industry). Yet many D/s relationships or DD/lg relationships talk about the need for a woman to shave to please her partner.

So here’s my question…. why? Is it a kink? It’s not fun on our end having to do it everyday (speaking from experience). Why don’t men also shave? Is it so women are seen as childlike in terms of their vaginas? The play brought up many interesting questions about that (including how oil never truly makes it soothe or feel better). So what’s the reason many in our community desire it?

Legendary Jets quarterback Joe Namath didn’t make the playoffs in 1972, leading his injury-plagued team to a .500 record. But Broadway Joe wasn’t going to let a little thing like “wins” keep him out of the Super Bowl. He still had his endorsements, including one with Noxzema, who was peddling a new anti-irritation shaving cream in a now-famous Super Bowl commercial.

It opens with a probably hammered Namath, who utters the line “I’m so excited, I’m gonna get creamed!” with all the pomp and circumstance of the first stoner to discover puns. Enter the eye candy, played by a then-unknown Farrah Fawcett.

Farrah lathers up Joe’s face while singing the commercial’s jingle. Joe, clearly smitten with the woman applying shaving cream to his face, can only stand there and smile like an overweight golden retriever getting his belly rubbed.

6 Terrible Super Bowl Ads You Won’t Believe Actually Ran

I don’t usually recommend specific products but for those of you who shave this product is sooo amazing, I have really sensitive skin and try not to shave most of the time but whenever I do using this makes it so much easier. I got it from Lush and it’s called the D'Fluff shaving soap, I don’t get any irritation after shaving when I use it, even on sensitive areas like bikini line or face and it doesn’t clog up the razor either which was the problem I was having with a lot of other shaving creams. Also it’s pink(!) and smells really really good. This isn’t meant to be like an advert or anything but I thought it might help those of you who get a lot of irritation while shaving, especially on the neck or face. x

Just a smidge…not too much, but I hope you enjoy.

The click of the front door closing sounded like a sonic boom through the silent house.

It resonated in them both, speaking of finality and borders being crossed. They had been alone before, but there was something different about this. Maybe it was the fact that they had just attended a wedding between two of their friends and the buzz of romance was still in the air.

Or, maybe it was the fact that Katniss looked so adorably familiar in her pajamas and matching slippers.

Momma I'm a teen girl and whenever I shave *down there* acne appears all over and I don't know how to prevent it! Please help?

 It might be ingrown hairs and irritation! 

 Proper shaving protocall will help with both of those. 

  • Try soaking in a bath before you shave in order to soften the hair.
  • Use a very good quality sharp razor. 
  • use shaving cream or soap bubbles while shaving
  • Only shave in the direction that the hair grows, not against it.
  • Be sure to moisturize after your shave!

Good luck, darling!

anonymous asked:

Tips to keeping skin clear, like products etc 😣😁 x

Oh I’m actually not really the best person to ask because I’ve never really had issues with keeping my skin clear but I shall share what I know! Coconut oil is fabulous for basically everything and is great for hydration. My skin is very dry so I use it a lot and it helps a ton. (It’s also great for your hair, esp curly hair because it’s naturally dry). Witch hazel is good for both dry and oily skin- it helps keep a good balance. It also helps with dark circles under your eyes, can help with scars, prevents shaving irritation (it’s a life saver), and makes bug bites stop itching. Tea tree oil is a great natural product for acne, if that’s an issue. Be careful though as it can cause reactions easily. I’m actually allergic to it :/ But it’s great. It helps with acne and skin clarification. Coffee scrubs are also good for acne. You can find many different “recipes” online and you can use used coffee grounds. Also, I use St. Ives Oatmeal Scrub and it makes my skin feel so incredibly soft. I hope this helps!!

It’s so early. My little facial violation rods haven’t grown in enough yet to actually justify the irritation of shaving (and my upper face is super smooth still yay, lower face is always fucked because fml)

That’s right, I said facial violation rods. Not facial hair. Facial violation rods. Because that is what they feel like
