Stay out of the sun. Stay out of the sun. Stay out of the sun.

Research good sunscreens and wear that every day. Physical sunscreens tend to protect a bit better than chemical ones because physical sunscreens don't react to other chemicals. Other than that, maintaining good hydration. I know it's been repeated ad nauseum in skincare threads, but sun damage is the #1 cause of aging.

Besides that, exfoliating helps as well, however keep in mind that you need to keep on top of a good skincare routine every day. Find what works for you, expect backwards steps (when I started on my search for a good skincare routine, I broke out for a good 2 months trying things out even though I took the precautions in introducing products every 2 weeks etc). Good luck.

I hate CoF threads so much. I use them as a way to comment and critique coords, and I love discussing with people exactly how a coord could be improved by changing this part or that part. It's really fun, but when I post to CoF and it inevitably gets crossposted here, none of that happens. Last time I was posted I had dozens of comments, people going back and forth, but NONE of it was about how I could improve my coord. It was just people bitching about what substyle of coord it was and some people saying they hated it and and some people saying they liked it, but no actual advice or suggestions. If y'all hate my coord than at least tell me which parts so I can improve ffs.

Yeah, acne. I even got pustules at one point. I finally figured it was from Missha's time revolution first essence and the oil. I also was not using a sufficiently exfoliating cleaner. Since I've switched to an exfoliating foaming cleanser and got rid of those two, my skin has never looked better. I look practically glowy.

If you already have a routine, it wouldn't hurt to try to switch things to see if you have better results. For instance, I just started using an eye cream (I know lol) and my eyelids look a lot better now.

I understand that fear, but it's scary that so many people are afraid of aging when it's something that happens to everyone.

I live in Europe and to be fair the US looks really scary to me. Lots of people there talk about your early 20s being a good time to get married and have kids, buy a house, start investing but also travel the world, meet the love of your life and learn programming. If you lag by several years then you're a sad loser. I'm not even from a poor country (Finland) but the only people I've seen start with the family/'real job' stuff are people from small towns who went to vocational school or got pregnant at 17. Most people in their mid 20s work at call centres, malls or the supermarket.

At least try to gently steer her away and link her to better sites. I remember a super enthusiastic girl found out I was into lolita fashion. She was super sweet and sooo excited. But she said 'wish.com has some great stuff,' and I tell her that the site isn't great because they have low quality stuff OR resell Taobao at a jacked up price. She says 'no they actually have some good stuff and reviews. I'm nodding, thinking... how can I demand she not use that site, but kindly? She ended up buying a petticoat she was disappointed with, so lesson learned, I guess. You can at least say you tried and try to save your friend some money, just make sure not to make them feel stupid.

Customer waited 10 days for a full costume (That I quoted them would take full month-2 month time span)- Paid me in full for costume and shipping and I woke up today to a nice little Paypal claim.

I hadn't even gotten her money yet (PayPal 21 day hold) and I just sent her a refund- didn't bother emailing her back.

Risks of autism and birth defects starts to become statistically significant after the age of 35. Fertility also doesn't start to really decline until then. That's an entire decade after you're 25, so yeah, the Christmas cake thing is stupid.
Nobody is really financially stable at 25, so it's stupid to have a kid you can't afford when you can wait 10-ish years with no real risk.

1 year ago I was getting really close to being an overweight bmi. Not there quite yet, but only a few pounds away.
I tried really hard to lose weight. At first it didn't seem to be going well but the past few months have been great. The past couple of weeks especially.

I've lost ~20 lbs and more than 3 inches from my waist. I'm only 5 lbs away from my goal weight. A lot of people have been noticing my weight loss and I've been getting a lot more complements on my figure.

Best of all, my wardrobe fits 10x better than it did. I've had my all-time dream dress hanging there doing nothing for months because it didn't fit when I bought it, but now it's nearly a perfect fit. I'm so excited to coord it and wear it after all this time. Even things that fit pretty well and looked good on me before look noticeably better now.

I see a lot of gulls talk in these threads about having a hard time losing weight. It can be really hard at first, but if you stick with it, you can make it. It's 100% worth the struggle.

Been on the slender side most of my life, but after high school I started gaining weight and I was nearing an overweight bmi. I wasn't quite there, but I was only a couple of pounds away.

I decided to try losing the weight, and at first it was really really hard. I messed up a lot, and even though I wasn't gaining anymore weight, I wasn't losing any, either. I was getting really discouraged and frustrated and I just wanted to give up.
But I kept with it, and now I'm only 5lbs from my goal weight but I'm also happy with where I am. I get complimented on my figure, and best of all my Lolita wardrobe first nearly perfectly now. I don't have a single piece that I don't feel confident in anymore. I'm chuffed to bits with how I look, and I couldn't be more proud of myself for going through with it.

I see a lot of gulls talk about wanting to lose weight and struggling with it, especially in these threads. I often times turned to /cgl/ when I was having a rough time too, and some of my best encouragement came from other gulls. Thank you all so much.
And to all gulls looking to lose weight- don't you dare give up! It's hard, especially when you first start, but you've just got to stick with it. You'll get there in time, and you'll thank yourself for it. Seriously, the feeling of accomplishment alone is 110% worth it. I believe in you.

Also I posted a while back about how my mom put my PS3 outside when she thought it would catch fire, only for it to be caught in the rain (dad promised to replace it, which he did). Well i moved out, and left a few things behind to get when i returned home in towards the end of August (mostly just fall clothes, but also my desktop PC and PS3) Well she decided to surprise me by mailing me a package with some of my stuff in it, and lo and behold she accidentally sent the old dead PS3 (new one is a Super Slim, dead one is a regular Slim) and i nearly died of laughter.

Oh man...
My fiancé's parents had him when they were 20, in college, living in separate dorms and with no income. His mother dropped out of college and moved across the country back in with her parents and hasn't been able to find a job paying above minimum wage since. His father hardly got to see his son for the first few years of his life. They've struggled financially for as long as he can remember and it has clearly affected him.
Lesson learned, right? lolnope
He doesn't understand why I want to wait until we have a stable income and stable home before I even chance getting pregnant. We're 25/26, which he believes is "old" when it comes to having kids, and are both poor overworked PhD students renting a dinky little apartment. In a few years I'm sure at least one of us will have a career and we can start seriously thinking about babies. But he and his parents especially keep talking like I'll stop being fertile the second I turn 26 and I'm just trying to get out of having kids at all. They actually blame lolita.

Um, that's actually a myth. Women stay fertile well into their 50s, and the increase in birth defects goes up from 0.5% to 1% every decade (that's not really "significantly"). It's not really a huge leap. But men can't sell their obsession with prepubescent girls if they don't convince women they aren't worth anything after 30.

> increase in birth defects goes up from 0.5% to 1% every decade (that's not really "significantly").

This is taken from the website of the national down's syndrome society. This is taken from data compiled by the Centers for Disease Control in the US. You can see the increase becomes exponential starting after age 35, and is not increasing at a factor of 'one percent' every decade. By the time a woman is 49, her chance of having a baby with down's syndrome is approximately 1/10 live births at 39, the chance was 1/150 live births. This is not a "one percent increase."

I agree with you on that our society is obsessed with youth and a certain youthful image of women, but please don't let your viewpoint get in the way of scientific fact.

It's not just fertility, it's the risks associated that are also a lot higher after 35. 35 year olds are known as "elderly" in obstetrics because the risk of complications really starts to ramp up then - not just foetal abnormalities, but all the other shit that can happen like gestational diabetes, pre-eclampsia, and placenta previa. There's also studies quoting 2 x increased risk of miscarriage over age 35, 2x risk of stillbirth over age 40. There's also an increased risk of prematurity which can also leave the kid with a lot of shit wrong if any of the stuff prem babies are at higher risk for happens.

Also, SOME women can stay fertile into your 50s or you can have early ovarian failure without knowing it, so the idea that you can just bang and get pregnant is only relevant to some women later in life. Fertility clinics make a lot of money off people who thought they had their forties to breed. You don't know which box you're in before you get there unless you have a strong family history of early menopause or already have something like PCOS.

At around 30 years old you lose that power, men aren't going to bend over backwards for you anymore, especially if you're a single mom, have lots of tattoos, are feminist, have lots of ex-boyfriends or past sexual partners, etc.

Me? As a 22 year old man I look forward to being 30-60 years old. I'm an incel, never had sex or a girlfriend, but as soon I'm wealthy in my late 20s I'll be able to fuck all kinds of girls, then I will have the sexual power, and be able to fuck 16-25 year old girls.

Men's sexual value goes up as they age, and women's goes down. Deal with it, you had your turn while young, and it's men's turn when they're older.

Men primarily want sex/youth, women primarily want money/resources.

Everyone for most of history.

People should be getting married and having kids when they're teenagers, divorce should be heavily discouraged and illegal without good reason, and adultery should be punished with death or severe prison sentences.

You think that's crazy? No, modern western society and your feminist brainwashing is crazy.

This is good logic in some cases though.

You show an extreme version of over dependence towards you parents. Its quite common, so don't worry. The issue is for you to solve though, are you going to keep on depending on them, or allow them to wear you like a puppet. I'm sure you're an adult (or young adult), so now is the time when you really change your relationship with your parents, you aren't a kid anymore.

Tell yourself (and maybe them) that you are no longer a fucking child anymore. You are an equal to them, and you have to be responsible for yourself.

>our next greatest scheme is to start tabling at conventions
>as usual, I throw myself into research, find the best suppliers, figure out how taxes work, come up with ideas for merch, find some conventions for us to attend
>B, a close reliable friend, offers to help with initial costs and with producing merch with equipment he's bought for his own business (B is a BRO)
>with C, I set an easy goal for us of creating X amount of merch each month because I want us to approach this with discipline, I surpass it quickly because I'm enthusiastic
>end of the month approaches
>she has made... half a button by this point

I don't think we need a seller's permit unless we make X amount a year") and it's annoying af for me to explain why when she hasn't done any research herself

He's a lot shorter than me but I figure if my ratios are similar to his and with the armor making my shoulders hidden, my hands hidden by gloves and the hip armor giving the illusion of even bigger hips I could pull it off, just need good makeup but my sister is a cosmetologist and it's going to make sure my face looks girly. Still have cardio and squats to do though but no upper body at all I need that trap mode.

Take B's advice, A may be depressed or just unable to manage their time yet but you shouldn't let their issues ruin your potential.

A may be bitter and blame you for their failures. They'll either get their shit together eventually or never at all, but you've already made the effort to meet them halfway and they didn't.

I had some underwear I needed to return, but now I'm stuck with terrible underwear. I was putting my a/c unit in the window, and the neighbor offered to help. The dude's 15 year old little brother tagged along with him. I had the receipt lying on the table near the window with some others. After they left, all my receipts were gone. I realize the kid likely just though he was helping by tossing out some receipts, but damn. This kind of blows. Checked my trash, so he must've just picked them off the table and wadded them in his pocket or something. I'm guessing the younger brother since he likely doesn't realize adults keep receipts.
