- the Dollar Tree sells a 5% benzoyl peroxide spot treatment by AcneFree for only $1 and it works wonders. benzoyl peroxide is what doctors prescribe for acne. it gets rid of the zits but also reduces redness within 10-15 minutes of application, so your acne becomes less irritated and visible.
- if your skin is prone to dryness, try putting the spot treatment on before bed along with a moisturizer (I favor coconut oil because of its natural anti-acne properties) and rinse it off in the morning. you’ll notice a difference for sure, and with much less irritation.
- if you’re on testosterone, your acne is partially due to new hair growth. even if you’re on estrogen, exfoliation loosens the dead skin cells that contribute to clogged pores, prevents ingrown hairs, and keeps your skin soft. so remember to gently exfoliate problem areas (not just your face) regularly with a gentle scrub or even a washcloth. avoid microbeads (they’re awful for the environment) or apricot scrubs (their granules are too large and jagged and will damage your skin and cause further infection). here’s a recipe for a homemade coconut coffee body scrub using stuff you are likely to already have and/or can buy with food stamps.

Go to your nearest target. Buy a two pack of pushup bras (24$ for 2), and target’s bra inserts (12$). Then go to your nearest Walmart and buy the Vasserette Control Shapewear Panties (2.50 each), they do wonders for helping your tuck. There you go! You just saved yourself a lot of money, you can afford to buy enough to wear every day, and best of all you look fabulous. -@twidx

I’m glad I could help :D
Accept that their gender is more complex than being soley male or female. I do the opposite- referring to myself more masculinely, being envious of guys, etc, but at the end of the day I’m still neither male or female. I’d ask them to describe their gender and to look at non-binary gender labels to see if anything fits.
Sure, ask away! Just tell me whether you’d like me to answer privately or not and I’ll do my best.
I am a proud Demisexual! And I always have a hard time explaining it to other people, let alone myself some times? But this makes it really easy ^^ please reblog and share this.
