I'm a little late to the party, but I know how you feel. I grew up around all boys and had the reputation of being the dirtiest out of everyone. I don't feel like I "girl" very well either, but I've figured out a few steps that help.

It's hard to say just how much time I spend on this stuff daily, it varies a lot but I've tried to incorporate it in to my regular free time activities as much as possible. I always multi-task with fun activities. I listen to music or podcasts while doing my makeup or cleaning the house. I watch netflix while doing my hair or nails. This is my reward system and helps motivate me.

Makeup is cool, but smelling good makes my feel like I'm winning the girl game. After showering, I lotion up and add perfume oil behind my ears, my wrists and a little throughout my hair. My favorite perfume is Dorian

When it comes to hair, there's no real short cuts here, just trial and error. I use a shower cap and avoid getting my hair wet or washing it unless I have time to style afterwards. Wash Monday's and Thursday's with Dry Shampoo on off days when needed.

When it comes to makeup, I like to look for inspiration in women who have coloring similar to myself.

I feel most confident when my hair is freshly dyed black and my skin is smoothed out with BB Cream: Missha #13, my brows are filled in with brow powder: Anastasia, my lashes are curled, and my lips are tinted with a red stain: Benetint

I'm also really fond of epilating in place of shaving or waxing.

Still feel like a hot mess when it comes to dressing well, but I'm working on that.

u/jglyum · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I've tried a few different things, and I epilate now. It definitely hurts more the first few times, but it gets a lot easier as time goes on. (Hair grows in a little thinner, doesn't hurt as much, etc.). Just look at skincare tips for exfoliating, moisturizing, etc., which people recommend whether you shave or epilate. I feel, in terms of pain, if you can wax, then you can epilate. One caveat with epilating - it's not the cleanest method, and you'll want to epilate more than you thought when you start, due to the hair regrowth cycle (they all don't come in at the same time).

I wanted to mention another option since you tried hair removal cream. I liked it, but ended up going with epilation because mixing this stuff up and using it while on a business trip is a little annoying.
Soft-sheen Carson magic shaving powder This is gentle hair removal. You mix some powder in a bowl with water to form a paste, put it on your legs, then wait a while and wash it away. It's never hurt, and it worked really well. I just had a couple friends who would ask me why I had a bowl and a spoon sitting in the bathroom. One friend started contemplating eating ice cream while in the bathroom, but that's off-topic.
Anyway, depending on how sensitive to pain you are, you may want to try this stuff. I just looked it up on Amazon and it was like $2 ($5 with shipping). I can't remember why, but back when I researched this one, everyone said the yellow can of powder worked better than the white one; that's the one I used, and I thought it was great.

I wanted to add one last thing. I still have a back-up razor that I have used very rarely (maybe once in the past couple years), because I wanted every last hair gone. The epilator takes longer, and does not work as cleanly. Also, the epilator I got was shower friendly, which is when I typically use mine. But it doesn't have a travel-safety switch, which basically makes sure you can't turn it on when it's in your suitcase. I've found that annoying, because I'll pack it for a trip, and get to a destination, and then need to plug it in to charge right away, because it accidentally turned on at some point.

u/fishscalepanties · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I stared epilating, not for everyone since it can be uncomfortable but I like the result and it’s cheaper than a wax. Also I’ve gone to salons and gotten waxed when I was at my heaviest and honestly they were nothing but professional. It is pricy (I’m from Canada too and there tend not to be the great deals around where I am) but I think it has the best long lasting results outside of laser.

Also, have you considered one of these trimmer things? I have one that I use whenever I feel like keeping it tidy but not bald. I like to go with the hair and cut following the curves down there (no visuals needed) and there’s little chance of harming yourself.

Oh and also! Mirrors are your best friend!

u/Rach__ · 5 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

You will have to find out what products are best for you! Cetaphil (very drying) broke me out horribly, but I recently found Cerave Foaming Face Wash and it is amazing! Moisturizer is also very important. I use Nivea Creme but a lot of people like Cerave in the tub. It breaks some people out (me) but a lot of people love it.

u/SebaceousSeabass · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Attached. I don't believe that everyone fits into 'categories' like the authors claim, but there are some very good chapters in there with concrete advice about opening up to people and not pushing them away. You may be particularly interested in the chapters about 'avoidant attachment.' I don't know you and what walls you're tryna break down, but I think the book offers some great starting points.

u/This-is-Peppermint · 38 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Have you tried Baby Foot? It's like a asian beauty sheet mask for your feet. You wear the booties for about an hour, then about 3-5 days later the top layer of you skin on your feet starts peeling off. It's pretty gross and also fun to pull it off. i don't think you are supposed to use moisturizer during the days before the peeling starts.

The foot skin that is revealed underneath is just so soft and fresh and new feeling.

I recently tried a cheaper version and it was NOT the same as the original Baby Foot.

Check out this review for what to expect

u/bluedog00 · 3 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

If it hasn't been suggested already, this doorstop is what I and my apartment mates use. It's renter friendly and you can use it on any door with a lock. It actually works really well. Best of luck!

u/carabe11a · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

So, you may want to use boric acid pills (you put them up your vagina) for the over night. I've got the same issue with the odor happening after multiple rounds and these things work like a charm. They dissolve overnight and everything is fresh the next day. Also, helps prevent BV (for me at least) and I used to get it constantly.

These are the ones I use: pH-D Feminine Health Support, Boric Acid Vaginal Suppositories

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Try Cetaphil as a cleanser, and Cera Ve as a moisturizer. This is what I've been using, and I adore them as a combo. If you use the Cetaphil it might make your skin a little drier than you want, which is why you'd want the Cera Ve with it.

I've always had combo skin (oily and dry at the same time) and used to break out quite a bit. After using this stuff I rarely get a single pimple. It's a little pricey, but it comes with quite a bit and you don't need to use much at all so it lasts a long time. The Cetaphil you just use a single pump and the Cera Ve you barely need to touch the stuff to get enough - a little goes a long way! Good luck!

u/seasicksquid · 11 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Tony Moly also sells a version of this.

Be sure to soak your feet before using. Like, until they are wrinkly. It'll help your skin to actually soak up the solution.

Also, the basis of this is really just exfoliating. You can get similar results without having to do the full peel by simply manually exfoliating your feet. It sounds gross, but I find it works without having to go through the whole process of molting feet for a week.

While in the bath - once your feet are nice and soaked and the skin is softened, you can usually just use a pumice stone, an abrasive cloth (like Italy clothes from South Korea or exfoliating mitts that are made of fine viscose (I prefer these for full body rub downs as well as feet - easier to use), or just your finger nails. You can feel the dead skin coming off - finger nails are especially useful around the toes.

u/throwawayforbcstuff · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Here's what I find helpful:

  • If possible, wear leggings instead of looser pants. With loosing clothing, your skin is rubbing against skin and causing the chafing. If you have a nice thin fabric like leggings, it'll act as a barrier and the fabric will rub against fabric instead of skin.

  • Thoroughly exfoliate the area every day in the shower with a gentle soap and scrubby product like a loofah or textured washcloth.

  • After you're out of the shower, apply Stridex in the red box all over the areas with pimples. Let it dry fully before getting dressed.
u/kaukauandkilos · 23 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I like to use these Japanese scrub towels! They are pretty rough so they exfoliate well and are long enough so you can clean your back.

u/see_chel · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I used to have the same problem. I bought these scrubbing pads on amazon and they are AMAZING (also great for use on your face):

I use them every time I shower with this body was that has salicylic acid in it:

That has completely nipped it in the bud for me!

u/lets_tacoboutit · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I was also raised by wolves with limited beauty knowledge, so no judgement.

Hand soap is probably causing some of your dry skin, so you should switch to something like Cetaphil for your face that's been mentioned by others. It's a great starting point since there isn't anything extra in it for acne, so it won't dry your skin out any more. Wash your face in the morning and evening, and put the moisturizer on after. Just put a pump of face wash in your hands, lather it up a little and then you're ready to wash.

It may seem a little pricey if you're new to skin care, but the container is so big it will last you a long time.

Also, here are the moisturizers I mentioned before
CeraVe AM
CeraVe PM
Using body moisturizer in your face can be a little risky since it's usually thicker than face moisturizer, so it may make you break out.

u/WasJosie · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I think little battery operated trimmers are perfect for this. You can find them at just about any drugstore (often in the "As Seen on TV" section). I put a link to one on Amazon so you can see what I mean. For me, it seems to work best to go downward on the cheeks, and upward on the upper lip. These are cheap, so it would be worth a try to see if this works well for her. I pluck the few coarse hairs that show up on my chin sometimes, otherwise I use this gadget. Very cheap, doesn't hurt at all, and very quick to use with no mess.

u/SwissMissyElliot · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I don't think anyone has mentioned it so far, but the book Attached was incredibly helpful to me. I would recommend reading it right away. link

u/HopkinGreenFrog · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Bodyglide. This is magical for protecting skin while you're breaking in new shoes.

Another good one is moleskin, which is like a bandaid without the pad so it helps protect without sliding around.

u/Jaime006 · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Ready Attached. It explains romantic attachment styles and one thing that really resonated with me that it's ok if you're the sort of person who is happier in a relationship than not in one. There is this pressure that it's unhealthy if you're not capable of being content being independent and that's kind of a myth.

u/Heart_of_Tara · 3 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Me too! I wound up ordering this one from Amazon tonight. The reviews were pretty good and it has a charger and a trimmer. I figure that if it turns out to be junk, at least it was $20 and not $50 or somesuch.

u/Ohokaysureyeah · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

This is the 5,000 mcg I just ordered for my mom

Natrol Biotin Plus Lutein Tablets, 5,000mcg, 60 Count

And I take the 10,000 mcg

Natrol Biotin Maximum Strength Tablets, 10,000mcg , 100 Count (pack of 2) ( Pack May Vary )

I initially found it at Sprouts but amazon had better prices. I just take one in the morning with the rest of my medication and supplements.

u/lilmissmoonshine · 23 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Try a product called Magic Shaving Powder. It's not really for shaving, it dissolves the hairs but is much much milder than Nair. It also says it's "formulated for black men" but it works just as well for me as a white girl on my sensitive bits. You can find it here or in pretty much any pharmacy.

u/blairewilde · 4 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I understand your pain! You probably have recurrent BV/ yeast infections. I dealt with this issue for years. Essentially, for reasons probably out of your control, your vagina is just not properly regulating its PH. It's a lot more common than I thought. Your period is throwing off your PH.

Something I found to be really helpful are Boric Acid suppositories. I used these and they were a miracle! (I think any type would work). Some women use them towards the end of their period to prevent any symptoms, some use them at the onset of symptoms for a week or two, and they seem to work for a lot of people! Read through the reviews and give them a try. Please remember, do not eat them- they are quite toxic. You put them inside,


u/strugglebrunch · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Glad to help! I got mine from Amazon, it's called a Salux cloth.

u/intheafternoon · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I use the unscented crystal deodorant stick (amazon). If I do sweat under my arms while using this, there's no smell. I use the dry stick version so it is kind off a hassle to use, my underarm as well as the stick have to be wet in order for it to get on my skin, then it has to dry completely. But it always works. I have tried certain dri but it gave me a rash and it made my armpits sweat even more, and I feel like any deodorant/antiperspirant with a scent smells way too strong.

u/kittiessaymeow · 3 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Tend Skin is a god send. I use it on my legs and bikini line and it’s changed my life.

Tend Skin The Skin Care Solution For Unsightly Razor Bumps, Ingrown Hair And Razor Burns, 8-Ounce Bottle

Edit: typo.

u/catterfly · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Do you do a physical or chemical exfoliant? I've had more success with a chemical one. I exfoliated with a mitt daily but still had issues with bumps. Started using this and it's gotten rid of ingrown hairs and bumps.

Oil also dissolves oil so you may try coconut/castor oil or a lotion on your legs as well if you want to try things you have at home before buying a new product

u/CaringRichBitch · 7 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Using body glide also helps prevent blisters. It's usually in the bandage or workout aisle. It's saved my butt so many times.

u/stonedandlurking · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

My holy grail is Crystal Deodorant. It’s about $5 and lasts me over a year with daily use. It works better for me than any regular, “clinical strength,” or natural deodorants I’ve tried. And it doesn’t stain my dark clothes with white streaks, nor does it make the pits yellow on my white shirts.

u/seaweedricecrackers · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I use SckoonCup!


It's smaller than other ones I saw on the market, and I've found it to be very comfortable! I also found frmheadtotoe's video on using the menstrual cup to be very helpful -


Probably TMI so apologies! >!but once I figured out where my cervix was, I had no more issues with leakage. sometimes it's not about getting a bigger cup but having it positioned correctly.!<

u/notdayna · 6 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Ahhhhhhhh, that's probably the key then. I'm really impatient with applying fake tan haha. I just bought these because I read in another thread that they are supposedly better than the gloves :O I can't wait to be a smooth baby hahaha.

u/debbers111 · 8 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I had success with “Italy Towels” about once a week to scrub (a lot of) dead skin off after a soak in hot water. Also, using coconut oil after showering and especially after scrubbing did great for any raised bumps.

u/LucyLegBeard · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

You mix it with water to make a paste that removes hair. It is designed for black men's face use, to remove coarse hairs and to prevent razor bumps so hopefully it is more delicate.

You can find this at wal-mart. I really can not recommend using a depilatory cream on your vulva, the area is extremely delicate. However, some people have a good experience using it.

u/ms23789 · 19 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Came to recommend this, specifically this kind of lock which doesn’t require special install so is perfect for an apartment. Addalock - (1 Piece ) Portable Door Lock It doesn’t look like much but will keep your door locked even if someone has a key.

u/tritonite · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I got this emoji epilator when it was on sale, and really like it. Unfortunately, I don't have any experience with the ones you linked, but I'd recommend getting an epilator with lots of tweezer heads if you think you might use it on areas larger than just your armpits -- arms, legs, etc.

u/Silly_Wizzy · 4 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I disliked the diva cup - too hard / crampy. But I love my Sckooncup, it has made my period basically forgettable ;)

Amazon Link

u/marypies78 · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I used to get awful ingrown hairs from any kind of hair removal - shaving, waxing, it didn't matter. Really painful red angry bumps, especially in my underarms & bikini line. A friend introduced me to Tend Skin. It has been like a miracle! No more ingrown hairs!

u/littleraccoonhands · 284 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Let me change your life!!! Hop on Amazon and search “Italy cloth”. $4.38 for an 8 pack of these miraculous exfoliating washcloths!

I’ve had KP since I was a kid and I tried everything. Since I found out about these the skin on my arms, thighs, and butt is so much smoother and even.

Shower with warm water, and after a few minutes start gently scrubbing your entire body and watch as your dead skin rolls off. Rinse well and cry about how smooth your body feels and embrace your new life as a baby dolphin.

Edit: here’s the link!

Master Lock 265D Door Security Bar, Adjustable from 27-1/2 in. to 44-1/2 in, White, Pack of 1,

u/tt463 · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

My brother suggested this: Master Lock 265D Door Security Bar, Adjustable from 27-1/2 in. to 44-1/2 in., White

u/youcantseeme0_0 · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

In addition to the other suggestions about changing the locks, consider getting a door brace security bar too. It should give you the time you need for police to arrive, if someone ever tries to force entry while you're home.

u/Kalistar · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I bought this trimmer and it's been working out well. You can probably find a comparable one at a store!

u/ummmily · 3 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I found some on Amazon.

I dunno. My rock looked like this, but less pink and more white, irregularly shaped, and scratchy-lookin'. Apparently it's salt.

As long as I put it on right after the shower, it's miraculous.

u/LovelyLadyBeans · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I have really thick, long Asian hair, and I've noticed that not using a hair dryer or heating products does wonders, along with Biotin supplements for me!

You want to make sure you start off with a lower dosage of Biotin supplements though, because it can cause acne breakouts for some people. I personally take 10,000 mcg Biotin tablets. (

u/DodgyBollocks · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I've had really good luck with my Remington, I was going to get the one with the swivel head but this one was much cheaper and got good reviews. I've only had it since christmas but I adore it for my legs and armpits, both of which usually get very irritated with shaving and get ingrowns. No irritation since I switched and only one ingrown!

u/sudilly · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I had that problem and my dermatologist recommended Biotin. It has made a huge difference.


u/moocow232 · 3 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Get an Addalock

They don't alter the door frame or anything, you just put it when you are in the room and remove it when you want to leave. They are a life saver for privacy.

u/trashlikeyourmom · 4 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Tend Skin.

I've never used it personally, but i hear it's amazing.

u/BeneGezzWitch · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

That looks right, here's the one we use: Crystal Body Deodorant Stick - 4.25 oz

u/Saorigameover · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I was looking at that one!
Is this one the same?

u/SpideyJen19 · 8 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

In addition to a nanny cam, put one of these on your door, so you’ll get woken up if you’re sleeping and there’s a break in:

Also, it’ll probably cause the person to flee.

u/erin_said · 6 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I use the crystal deodorant, and it's a little odd to get used to at first, but it works great! You have to reaaaaallllly get it all over your underarm area though, not just in the pit...I rub mine a little bit on the sides of my armpit and then a lot farther up and down (like a bit down onto my sideboob area and on my arm where it touches my side boob area). I definitely had a few days where my body was sort of getting used to not having traditional deodorant on, so I was a bit stinky, but it didn't last long. Now the only time I get stinky is if I'm doing really heavy physical activity in the heat, but that would have happened even when I wore normal deodorant. This is the kind that I buy because I hate the dispenser on the stick version, but the stick version works just the same. My favorite thing about it is that it's cheap and it lasts a super long time. The only time I've had to buy new deodorant since I've started using it wasn't because I ran out (I wasn't even close), but it was because I dropped the crystal chunk and it fell awkwardly and shattered.

u/toldtherewouldbecake · 3 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I can shave my legs maybe once a week. Any more than that I get ingrown hairs. None of the prevention tips have ever worked for me. I don’t even attempt to shave my bikini line. Ingrowns there are a nightmare.

Magic cream shave (a depilatory cream for black men) is what I had been using for my bikini line. Sometimes my legs also. But it is messy and smelly.

More recently I bought Panasonic electric shaver and veet trimmer for my bikini line. Complete game changer! It doesn’t give you as close of a shave but I can shave every ingrowns.

u/mtngirl279 · 5 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Contrary to the other commenter I would say that boric acid saved my life after battling with recurring bv/yeast infections for three years. Even after visiting multiple (five to be exact) doctors who couldn't figure out the problem, this is the only thing that helped.

I drink kombucha and green tea at least three times a week and use a boric acid suppository (from Amazon) when things start to feel slightly off. I try to avoid eating too many sugary foods or carbs in a day and also eat greek yogurt with cinnamon and honey at least four times a week. These changes have completely gotten rid of my infections. Hope this helps! I know how awful it feels when it seems like things will never be normal again!

u/MsNewKicks · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

It won't grow back "even more". Shaving doesn't cause more hair to grow.

Pick up something like this and trim it down as much as you can and then use the razor to shape/shave however you want. Exfoliating before helps and remember light but steady strokes when shaving. The more you shave over a spot, the more likely it will get irritated. And moisturize afterwards!

u/justkayoh · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I have really thick black hair as well and you can definitely see the roots. I usually will epilate my armpits once or twice a week and it take like two minutes with this!

This one also isn't on your list but I've used this one since early 2015 and it is still going strong!

Emjoi AP-18 Emagine Dual Opposed 72 Tweezer Head Epilator

This one has to be plugged in order to be used. I thought that would be a hassle since I had a cordless one before but honestly, having to have it plugged in isnt a hindrance at all. You're always at optimum speed which means it's less painful. The cord is long enough for me to maneuver it however I want to, and I epilate dry.

I would get annoyed with my cordless rechargeable (one I had before purchasing the one recommended) because I always forgot to recharge mine. Because of that, the motors wouldn't be as strong which would break my hair follicles rather than pulling them out and it was more painful when the motors were slow. It ended up aggravating my skin more.

u/kota99 · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I've got the skooncup. I generally rinse in lukewarm water when I empty and before the first use that cycle and then boil to sanitize at the end of my cycle before I put it away for the month. No soap because I don't want to risk not getting the soap fully rinsed off and then winding up with soap residue causing issues in my vagina.

u/MoreThanAnyoneKnows · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Is this what you're talking about by any chance? I hate my feet and wanna try it.

u/nuclearmango · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Seconding the renters insurance!! Depending on the company/coverage it can cover things stolen from your car while on the property (I only know this cause my car got broken into last night lol) you can insure any of your more expensive items for a pretty reasonable price.

Also I got some door alarms like this for my front and back doors.

u/FrodosFroYo · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

You could try a personal trimmer like this . If you use it without the guard, you get a close cut and no ingrown hairs.

u/keelasalie · 5 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Exfoliation is your friend. I recently started epilating, and while it has done wonders in taming my very thick, dark hairs, I have been noticing more ingrown hairs. I have been using an exfoliating body wash with an exfoliating wash cloth and it has been helping, but there are a lot of ingrowns that are getting irritated. :/

Edit: for reference, this is the epilator I got because I don't have the funds for anything more expensive right now.

u/Springrayna · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

This trimmer is going to have to be the only thing I use on my bikini line/ upper legs anymore. It sucks because it's never as close of a shave - but I think that shaving so closely to the skin is what is giving me ingrowns. I hate it too.. so much. It's almost winter, thank goodness.. but my thighs look worse than ever (I tried epilating and shaving with razor)

u/-anne-marie- · 3 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Get a security bar! Seriously, no one will be able to get inside with one of these bad boys stuck under there. I had my dad test it with my front door and he could only open it about an inch and a half with brute force.

u/mindfluxx · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

This stuff works amazing for razor burn. (Tend Skin -- link at bottom) I also get bad bumps esp at bikini. I ended up doing laser treatment. It eventually did sorta grow back but I no longer have problems with razor burn there. Before that I did waxing which still caused some problems sometimes, but not anywhere as bad as shaving.

u/CanuckLoonieGurl · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

These things are amazing as far as exfoliating goes. I wouldn't recommend on your face (well I do very gently), but they use these at Korean spas, and Korean homes everywhere I'm sure. But after being in the shower for a bit, just exfoliate your whole body with this and all the dead skin will come off. There is no they cloth like it. The ones at the grocery store do not compare. I do it about once a week. And then use coconut oil right after the shower. I find non exfoliated skin just feels the worst.

u/RobotPigOverlord · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Knives are not a good self defense tool. I train in combat sports and we train in knife fighting and all i can say is EVERYONE in a knife fight gets seriously hurt.

Pepper spray is my self defense tool of choice. Can be used without being in arms reach of an assailant. If u want something by the bed, u can get a roll of industrial velcro from the hardware store and pepper spray and attach a pepper spray to the side of ur bed frame or bed side table.

U can get vibration alarms for the windows to sound the alarm if a window is broken. And/or window alarms meant for opened windows. A good heavy duty lock for the door.
