5 Tips To Sooth Dry Skin! – For Men and Women

Hello Ladies and Dudes,

I was recently messaged on Tumblr and even though I plan to create a video about this, I thought I’d go ahead and write about it as well.

There are a few ways to go. I’m not sure if there’s a medical condition causing the dry skin. If not, and if you’re just dealing with basic dry skin, I have some advice. This is my personal opinion and what I’ve found works for me.

I have very dry skin. I contribute it to my Middle Eastern genetics. It’s taken me years to find products that work for my skin. I have found that I can use very expensive products or even drug store ones and have my skin react positively.

If I’m being honest, my skin is perfectly happy with Walgreens products or even your local grocery store products.

Here are key elements to having great skin.

1) Drink water. Water is going to help relieve your body of those nasty toxins. Please do not skip this step! Do not drink coffee, tea or Red Bull (or anything else) all day and assume that your body is going to function correctly. It won’t. It needs water.

2) Watch what you eat. Watch what you eat. To avoid dry skin and acne focus on what you’re eating. Whatever you eat will come out in your skin. Start the day with fruit. I eat an avocado for breakfast with coffee and water. Cook your own food. Focus on eating greens. Avoid grease! Remember that your skin is directly effected by what you consume.

3) Experiment with face wash! and lotions: Wash your face with hydrating soaps and cleansers. There are some skin types that react badly to using either or, so experiment.  Oil free cleansers are a great way to go, just remember to lotion your face afterward! I personally recommend washing your face once a day, at night before bed. I find that if I do it more than that my skin dries out and is upset by the over cleaning.

Lotion works the same way. You have to try multiple ones before finding the one that works for you. I use Aveeno for my face. It helps sooth my skin without leaving it feeling oily.

4) DO NOT TOUCH YOUR SKIN! Do not pick at your skin. Do not aggressively pop your pimples. Do play with your skin. Your hands are dirty! They pick up everything that you touch throughout the day. All that dirt will end up on your face. Wash your hands often (and lotion after to avoid dry skin).

5) Be consistent: When I was a teenager I had horrible acne and dry skin. I didn’t attend school one week because it was so bad and I was afraid of being teased. We’ve learned that acne isn’t just for teenagers. It’s actually a skin condition that effects people of all ages. So don’t worry if you’re an adult with acne!

Make sure to be consistent with your skin. Give it sometime to get used to the products you’re using. Having a skin routine.

My routine: I wash my face with water in the morning and lotion right after. At night I wash everything off with cleanser. I lotion again and head to bed.

Everyones skin is different, but dry skin is often easy to sooth by washing with hydrating soaps/cleansers, motorizing, not touching your face, eating correctly and being consistent.

Good luck!

How Do I Get My Boyfriend To Be More Dominant?

Hello Ladies and Dudes,

I got a question on tumblr from a woman, essentially asking how she can get her boyfriend to take more control…

I created a video as a response.

 

I also wanted to add a list of ways to help those entering into control dynamics.

Ways Your Top/Dom/Master Can Take Control In Every Day Life:

  • The bottom greets the top with a specific saying.
    • “Good evening, Sir, how was your day?”
    • “Good evening Mistress, welcome home.”
  • The bottom uses specific titles instead of their name.
    • Instead of Bob, call him Sir.
    • Instead of Susan, call her Ma’am.
  • The top can pick out the bottom’s clothes when headed to an event.
    • I often lay out three dresses for Christopher to choose from or he’ll have one in mind already (Christopher only chooses what I wear for special events, though some people do it every day).
    • The Top gets to dictate when the bottom cums or masturbates.
      • Sometimes it’s as simple as, “You will not masturbate until I see you, that way you’ll be begging me to fuck you.”
      • Or, “You will masturbate today for ten mins, but you will not cum until I say so, or maybe not at all…”
    • Top can choose whether or not the bottom wears panties for the day/or event coming up.
      • Christopher loves to take away my panties because I’m a very wet person, so he knows I have to be careful where I sit and how move around (especially since he’ll put me in a short dress on nights with no panties).
    • The Bottom will have a meal prepared for the Top when the top comes over/wakes up/gets home from work.
    • The bottom will massage the tops feet during TV time.
    • The bottom will kneel while the top feeds them dinner.

These are just common ways for Tops/Doms/Masters to take control. There are always other methods, but remember, taking control means different things for different people.

Explore! Have fun!

I hope this helps!
