Olive oil 🙏🏻🙏🏻

Okay so listen and trust me on this one. OLIVE oil is basically as good as coconut oil, and if you put it on your face over night (not too much) it can help STOP acne. It can also PREVENT wrinkles, TIGHTENS pores MOISTURISES skin and basically yeah use it on your face people.

I use it under my sudocreme but I’ll make another post on that

Trust me my little hoes

Have you tried the skincare line by Saturday Skin? The packaging is so cute, I'm really intrigued!

I haven’t, but i’ve been super intrigued as well!

What I do know is this line is targeted towards young people worried about aging. Anti aging for millennials. 

This is a high performance, science backed anti aging line from Korea. What makes this line “anti aging for millennials” is the products aren’t as heavy as other anti aging products. They still make an oil controlling lotion, a feather light night cream, a shine purifying cleanser. Products marketed at combination, oily, acne prone skin while still being moisturizing and anti aging. Most anti aging products are aimed at maturing skin and can be a little too greasy and don’t take into consideration more “youthful” skin concerns like oil and acne. Still plumping your skin with ingredients that target prevention of wrinkles, skin texture, etc.

The price point is high but not luxury. Similar prices to what you’d find at Sephora. Nothing is over $50 or under $20. Unlike most Korean brands this is a little more easily available at places like Nordstrom, Urban Outfitters, Peach & Lilly

If any of my followers have tried this brand please message me your thoughts!

my sister came over the other day and she and my mom started talking about anti-aging skin care routines and products, and just hearing my sister (who’s 21 btw) talking about her extensive, expensive, and exhausting routine of applying products and getting treatments to prevent wrinkles (which, again, she is 21!) made me so tired and anxious, but it also made me think about some of the conversations we had as kids about growing up.

I remember being around 10, her being around 12 and having our friends come over for sleepovers. We would all stay up all night and talk about everything, including talking about our fears of aging. It was never about fears of being an adult or responsibility, it was fears the effects getting older would have on our appearances. I remember how normal it was for us to jokingly talk about how we’d kill ourselves rather than live a day past 39. A bunch of young children talking about how we wanted to die and leave behind pretty corpses and be remembered as young and beautiful, and not one of us ever thought any of this was fucked up. It was such a normal thing, not even just between me and my friends but I heard other girls at school talking about the same things, it was very casual, a common topic to talk about. 

Even now after years of learning about patriarchy, beauty standards and socialization, and working to unlearn what was pushed on to me by society from birth, I still panic about aging, I still look in the mirror for signs of wrinkles, I still cannot imagine being middle-aged, or want to be one. I still feel the need to do everything I can to delay aging as much as possible, to spend hundreds of dollars and countless hours on it like my sister does. I don’t want to, but that fear is so strong an so ingrained in me, and has been for as long as I can remember, and I have seen that same fear in the younger generation of girls, the same thoughts and words from my 9 year old cousin, heard it from girls walking home from the elementary school down the street from me. It makes me feel hopeless, another generation of girls who will struggle against something ingrained in them before they even had a chance.
