How does one give themself a makeover, an upgrade? How do you work out exactly what will suit you best?

I'm working out in order to get a fitter body because I let myself go in uni but while I'm at it I want to get my hair, makeup, nails, everything else sorted!

How do you decide what to work on and where do you take it from there? Does anyone have any tips to becoming healthier and more beautiful with hair care/skincare and the rest?

The same goes for giving wardrobe a makeover and the rest. Are there any resources?

I don't know where to begin or what threads here to start on and end up aimlessly lurking but without a solid plan.

Has anyone made significant improvements in how good they look naked?

I've spent this summer losing a few vanity pounds and it's going well. I seemingly have a cute slim hourglass silhouette, and when I wear well-fitting clothes I'm really happy with my body… but when I take my clothes off, it's like there's no difference no matter how much weight I lose. I look skinnyfat and doughy despite my ribs sticking out, also in an unappealing way. My breasts are so saggy and kind of far apart. A few years ago I was <110lbs at 5'6'' after going through a similar glowup project and I'm soon at that weight again, but even then I never seemed to look nice without clothes despite being a bit underweight already.

I know the solution is improving body composition with strength training, but I guess what I worry about is that I might never be able to get a good-looking body because of how I carry fat and muscle. Looking at real, less edited pictures of women who train a lot (e.g. on Reddit rather than Insta lol), so many end up with a slightly muscular but still kinda skelly anachan look maybe with a small pouch, not really feminine and attractive. And so many of the nice progress photos are obviously shopped or posed in a highly specific way, it's getting hard for me to believe people with normal genetics can look actually attractive even with effort lmfao.

I know it's silly but it makes me so sad. When I started dating my last boyfriend, I wore sheer tights a few times and he was in awe of my legs and always complimented how long they were and how crazy he was about them… but once we got to the stage where I was fully naked, he never said anything about them again kek. I feel like this applies to my whole body too.

Also I feel like getting the toned, healthy, and defined look would still require losing a lot of body fat. Getting toned this way means my breasts will deflate further, and while I'm considering a lift, I don't want implants. I also can't lift heavy because I have bad joints and my sister really damaged hers that way… will higher rep, moderate weight training even make your muscles significantly more defined?

Random googled pic related, it gives me hope, but is it just tricks with flattering lighting?? I just want to look healthy, slim but curvy like I do with clothes pls help

This is gonna sound odd but how about getting a spray tan? Tans seem to show off musculature better than paler skin.

I wanna make an accountability post.
My daily life atm is really sad. I used to be such an optimistic person and had so many hobbies but I feel almost dead because of shift work/being in a new place/weight gain. I'm having so much trouble feeling confident. I feel like such an outcast and it sucks not being able to even console in myself by feeling confident.

> 23F, 190 lbs (gained 40 in a year)

> Spend ALL my time in front of the computer, unless I work
> Not in school (my biggest goal) and can't work much right now because my lower back hurts like fuck
> Wear my husband's hoodies/long sleeves and slouchy shorts everyday
> Hair looks like trash because I have 2B hair but have no motivation to take care of it because I typically don't leave the house lmao
> Scared to leave the house because new country (despite being here a year) and unfit now.

Hopefully I can check back in a year and have a better life.

No. 141757

Thanks anon, this is actually great advice! I'm really pale and it probably makes things look way worse and vaguely less healthy. My style is kinda low key goth so being pasty works with that but maybe a subtler tan would already improve things.

Raped at like 5 years old by what I think was one of my brothers friends (cocsa, they were in their teens/tweens probably) underneath the deck of the back of our house.
All I remember thinking he was cute and always looking at him before that, him asking me some shit like if I want to feel good, it actually feeling good, then afterwards crying in my moms bed.
Not sure if I blocked it out of my memory until 6th grade or if thats just when I started actually thinking about it, but yeah, everything came back to me around there and I started showing ptsd symptoms for the next 3 years or so (around 11-13). Didnt get any help, never spoke about to anyone besides randos online, just became a mess thinking about it a lot before deciding to repress it all. Self harmed and skipped a lot of school cause of it.
Realized small things like the reason why I had a vivd memory of things like getting a body checkup at the doctors but my twin not getting one, the reason why me and my sis moved with our mom the next 2 years, among other things, were probably because of that.
I’m apathetic when thinking about it now, unless I think too hard and get sad/angry.

Aside from that I got groomed online when I was 14 to 16. Luckily it was just roleplay shit, no actual pictures or anything. But it was almost every night for like half a year at one point. Was aware of the situation and felt gross, I knew his age but I never told him mine, so I felt like it wasnt so bad. But on my 16th he asked how old I was, I said guess, he said around 17. yikes. Lost virtually whatever interest I had in him left right there.

I've taken very, very bad care of my teeth and I haven't been to the dentist in 6 years. My teeth are yellowed (especially inbetween my teeth so you can tell I haven't flossed), I have tartar on my front teeth and most likely caries. I know I really need to go, but I'm so scared of what the dentist will think of me. I have obviously practiced very bad oral hygiene for a long time. (My oral hygiene is good now but that doesn't undo all the damage) So I'm super emberassed and scared to go.

Can someone give me some encouragement?

No. 141472

Better to go literally as soon as possible because it'll only get worse the more you put it off.

I found out I needed around 10 fillings when I went after a few years of what I thought was OK dental care (brushing once, maybe twice a day). It was one shocking appointment taking 30 min, then it was just a case of fixing it up. It took 2 appointments to remove that active decay, and I think that's what'll get you. Because even if you take great care, the active decay will still be making your cavities bigger, and it'll be hard to fix without professional help. Go for the sake of your future dental health, or accept you'll have false teeth sooner than you should.

No. 141473

Most dentist won’t give a fuck, also even if you have damage they won’t think much about it because some people just have naturally weaker teeth, plenty of people take very good care of their teeth and still have issues like yellowing and caries. It seems like there’s quite a bit of luck involved in tooth health, Im a bit of an airhead and always forget to brush frequently enough but i never had any issues, people sometimes comment on how i have a pretty smile lol

I’m quite worried about my teeth.
I’m only 22 but my teeth are all thinned-out and worn.
I didn’t realise i had a misalignment until I was like 17-18 because no dentist ever told me that I had an overbite.
I remember my dentist saying I didn’t need braces when my dad asked for them. I then just assumed I had normal teeth since they’re otherwise quite straight. But then the front teeth became visibly thin and chipped and now i even have trouble biting into tougher food and can barely drink anything cold or hot.

I moved to another country where the dentists are all shit. They fucked up my teeth multiple times already so I’m afraid to ask for braces. I also never had the money for it but now I’m seriously considering it. But then I’m also scared of my teeth breaking since they’re so weak already.
I don’t even know if braces will help my overbite. It could be a jaw issue too.

No. 141423

I used to get confronted about this all the time in sincerity, I had a group of girls actually speak up and tell me it was a women's changing room and ask me to leave, making women uncomfortable, one time in the bathroom a woman looked at me, visibly went "fucking what", checked the sign on the door and then decided to leave. This was when I was younger though, I've always been quite tall too, I feel like it has stopped since I've naturally dressed more feminine but sometimes I feel it again when I'm looking bummy in ambiguous hoodie/tracksuit and start worrying about it happening again

No. 141430

As a teen I often got mistaken for a young guy since I dressed in men's clothes, had short hair, a small chest, and a deep voice.

Nothing serious happened but I was called sir A LOT at my customer service job, and apologized to when they noticed I was a girl. A little girl also once asked my gender lol.

I'm a doe bi now so I never get mistaken as a man, but it was kind of a fun time tbh. 10/10 would be androgynous again if I didn't love feminine aesthetics so much.

Just to know her body better? I don't have a sex drive from years of antidepressants like I don't even get wet or masturbate. It's like letting me "know" her… yaeh writing this is super creepy I'm so glad this was anonymous I really thought others would agree.
I'm not larping! I think I've just been repressing my femininity all my life so when I do wear makeup or girl clothes it freaks me out. So I have fantasies about getting close to a girl. idk, lmao, this was creepy. I feel sorry for myself sometimes because it feels like I was never allowed to be a girl, cause my mom would call me a whore for wearing a dress and make me feel self conscious… so i use male pronouns online but i guess one day i'd like to have a bf to be girly for.

God, it just does it for me and I don't know why because I don't think about her in any other scenario but this one. I haven't had my first sexual experience with a woman yet and I feel so stunted. I just wish she could have been single when we met, we flirted but she was committed to her girlfriend. I also refused to commit to my first "girlfriend" and dumped her and all I do is push away other women and I just need another woman so badly. It's never going to happen, girls.

very happy anon here- for a long time I was in an incredibly toxic relationship with an abuser who would threaten self harm and suicide to keep me, even months after I admitted that I wasn't feeling the connection anymore. I would tell my therapist that after that I'd never be brave enough to be in love, but actually, I ended up with the most wonderful boyfriend and I still don't know how I got so lucky.

He supported me through the messy aftermath that came with the abusive relationship, we're both aspiring illustrators, I felt socially alienated as a child because of aspergers but he has it too and I feel like we're two awkward aliens that seem to really get one another without much thought. He's a mind reader, he's so motivated and aspiring and he encourages me in all my goals, he makes me laugh so much and we can talk about anything. Intimacy with him is warm and being with him makes me feel right at home. He's incredibly caring and thoughtful, something I was always (admittedly) cynical about in men for a long time. I guess I just hadn't found the right person until I met him.

I really am so happy I got to meet someone so full of life, I don't get that awful little trauma response niggle at the back of my head with him and we get along so well that we never fight, just lots of good heart to hearts. A cute bonus is the little doodles he will leave me to make me smile, or when we draw together and talk for hours without a care in the world.

I can't wait to see him after lockdown.
