Weekly Styling & Grooming Thread

Welcome to the weekly Styling & Grooming Thread. This thread is for:

  • giving and receiving feedback and recommendations;
  • discussing skincare routines, product recommendations, hair cuts, clothing, etc. from our community;
  • diving into fashion-related topics at a more more in-depth level;
  • and getting a little confidence boost in the Selfie of The Week subthread!

Please be kind to one another! Don’t feel pressured to share any photos of yourself if you aren’t comfortable with showing your face or body. Physical appearance can be a sensitive subject, and we want this to be a safe space. Let’s all help each other get closer to matching how we look on the outside to who we are on the inside. 🙂

This week’s topic: DIY Styling & Grooming

Do you make your own clothes? Mix your own face masks? Share your DIY tricks & tips!

Your Tip of the Week: Do not put DIY lemon and baking soda face masks on your skin because this is how you can make your skin photosensitive. (See: Drinking lemonade in the summer and getting a sun burn around only your mouth.) Skin’s outer layer is the acid mantle with an ideal pH of 4-6. Don’t fvck with it by smearing that lemon juice with a pH of 2 all over your face, even if you think the baking soda will balance it. >:(
