Since when is getting too comfortable involve looking like a shittier, less attractive, and depleted self confident version of your former self?
Women and men both have been known to let themselves go to shit once they found their long term or final relationship. Since this is my blog post, and I happen to be a women we are going to focus on the female end of this and not include the whole dialogue about men this happens to as well.
Getting More Intimate Is A Relationship Gain Not Measured In Pounds.
“He loves me no matter what I look like.”
Sure he does. What does that have to do with your weight gain though? THIS DOES NOT COUNT IN OBVIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES such as a health issue, new baby and so on so all of you who were about to kill me calm down. We are strictly confronting the issue with those who don’t have any situation in front of their will.
Back to voluntary ugly actions-Love has a lot to do with excepting each other and being understanding when the flaws we create or endure as human beings pops up we are there to support one another. That does not mean when the going doesn’t get tough, and I still want to look like shit I am lucky Bill still loves me because if not then…what?
No Makeup Is Fine For An Appearance But Not A No Show.
I get it. Your tired, and your makeup you had to wear for your day gig is sticking to you like putty. You want to relax without clogging your tired pores.
What to do In Order To Not Look Like Shit and Still Be Able To Let Skin Breathe?
1. Find a “brightening face wash.”
It doesn’t seem to be working? take it back with the receipt and try another that claims to brighten.
Repeat. When you find one that VI SIBLEY brightens your face to where after four uses you notice something. Neutrogena has a new one:
Warning: This is not the only one out there and this product does contain Vitamin C and Soy which actually makes some medications for example: ADD meds not work as well, and can break you out if your on a new birth control pill brand in the first month (sounds crazy but it’s true).
So if any of the above applies to you I would try another one going from least expensive first, and then only going up in price if Walgreen’s supply = no brighter face.
What does Brighter mean? I don’t want to look LIGHTER.
Brighter to me when referring to the face means – less tired, less like you have been crying, less hung-over – all of which as women we can face in the mirror sadly without actually going through tears or drinking alcohol. Basically sometimes we look like shit and even like we are on crack simply when we are exhausted. Some brightening face washes can tell your face, “Wake up bitch, smile, look alive and stop playing dead. We see your ugly ass!”
You want the face wash that listens and follows the implied direction of the quoted text above.
2. Carmex (the one in the jar unless you like to eat carmex).
Lips are chapped after work because we are dehydrated. Drink more water! Regardless, though put on some carmex in the form that is encased in a jar. SPF is better of course and I like strawberry flavored but the regular shit will do its job.
Whiten your damn teeth. Crest white strips are expensive you say? Replace buying magazines off the stand and sign up for the yearly subscription or toss them all together, or replace something you spend too much on and go broke if you have to as long as you always have a full supply of strips.
What if they don’t work?
Even better. Go to the dentist and get trays molded of your teeth. If you are lazy and aren’t afraid of an odd response ask to get two molded so your lazy ass has an extra if the first pair is dirty. Put in the gel at night (never use anything higher than 20% unless your goal was, “see through,” teeth.
Leave the guilt of teeth whitening purchases! Be ridiculous when it comes to the drug store, and trays when it comes to your teeth. Don’t get the once a year whitening thing because it is too harsh and you need to make white teeth a part of your life and do it weekly in some fashion to make it stick.
What is too white?
When your teeth hurt. Or if you decided to not listen
If you tell yourself this to make your conscious allow some solace then your one of the women who have unfortunately let themselves go, and now are worried about what your man has to do with this. Does your man have a part of this issue? Maybe later. This issue though is with you.
Being single, taken or married doesn’t take away the fact that looking like shit isn’t fun, comfortable or an addition to our lives.
