Two things I recommend!
- Filling/Silicone Primers
Pore refining, thicker primers feel almost like a gel or silicone and are great for filling in those crater scars and any uneven texture. They create a thin layer over the skin filling in any uneven texture almost creating a new skin texture so any makeup applied over it will look a lot more smooth.
Try primers like Tarte Clean Slate Poreless Primer, Loreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base, Loreal Youthcode Pore Vanisher Primer, Clinique Pore Minimizer Instant Perfecter & Smashbox Photofinish Primer.
Exfoliating will help your skin become more even in texture over time. This isn’t a quick fix but exfoliating once to twice a week will buff away any dead skin making your skin more smooth. Exfoliating long term helps buff away the first few layers of skin so you can get to the fresh, smooth skin with no acne scaring!
Something you might want to consider is getting microdermabrasion! Microdermabrasion is a spa treatment that is basically intense exfoliation. It will give your skin the look of months, even years of regular exfoliating. Great for acne, scars, aging skin and uneven skin texture. Microdermabrasion can be costly but there are other alternatives. You can use an “at home” microdermabrasion product like the PMD (personal microdermabrasion, around $150) or Olay’s Microdermabrasion Peel Kit (around $20). The PMD is a tool/device similar to the ones used at the spa. The Olay Microdermabrasion Peel Kit is sort of like an at home facial. Both are more intense exfoliators and not meant to be used daily or even weekly if you have more sensitive skin.
Good luck babe!
This is weird but I used to play Qur’an recitations for my cat because she loved them. She’d get as close as she could to my phone and rub herself all over it and purr non-stop. She was so strong on the deen. Rest in peace, Puss.
so fucking sad
Just shows me that people love to bitch, but they don’t like to really do anything about what they’re bitching about.
Its really sad.
I keep seeing this photoset and the thing I hate most about it is the assumption that none of the people walking around here are “The Poor”.
Where are they? Where are we? The Poor?
Is there a place they keep us? Somewhere else? Always just a little bit farther away from the people who are assumed to be the ones helping?
Always just outside the window, looking in at the people discussing What Should Be Done, you know, About Them?
Or maybe “The Poor” are right here, in front of you, telling you to fuck off with your “Help The Poor” bullshit. I’m helping the goddamned poor right now. I’m helping myself, I’m helping my family, I’m helping my loved ones, I’m helping my friends.
We’re right here, despite this sense of social separation you’ve manufactured to make yourself feel various ways about yourself.
Photosets like these even remove the minute amount of context you might have gotten from the video, knowing that some of the people who got pissed off at the “Fuck The Poor” sign were angry because they are poor.
Yeah. This photoset is garbage. Meant to appeal to people who feel really satisfied and self-congratulatory when they see the apparent “apathy” of people in response to appeals to charity.
When I see Americans cheer on their politicians, I wonder do they think of us. Do we matter at all? Does our suffering under their nation’s policies ever graze their consciousness? These are all very unfair decisions the White House has made against our people based on lies and it seems so normalized by the citizens. There aren’t many dissidents. Its just business as usual in the USA.

He was my grandma’s tenant until his family moved to Sudan and now, he’s studying in Sweden, but reguraly visits Eritrea and has seen the economical damage of dishonest sanctions that were enforced in 2009 and strengthened in 2011.

How then can one expect the state to solve the problem of violence against women, when it constantly recapitulates its own history of colonialism, racism, and war? How can we ask the state to intervene when, in fact, its armed forces have always practiced rape and battery against “enemy” women? In fact, sexual and intimate violence against women has been a central military tactic of war and domination.
Yet the approach of the neoliberal state is to incorporate women into these agencies of violence—to integrate the armed forces and the police.
