Does anyone else ever look at vintage diets? Some of them are nuts.

I seen one posted somewhere that was endorsed by Vogue magazine that was was just steak and a white wine for every meal.

Literally a glass and some steak for breakfast, just a glass for lunch, and then a steak and the rest of the bottle for dinner.

I've been trying to go deodorant free for years and I failed every time, I live in a warm climate area and it's hard not to get sweaty and stinky but I finally figured it out, I stopped wearing deodorant for good, I'm not even wearing one of those
'natural' ones that your body takes forever to adapt to and never works.

I stopped wearing deodorant at all, first two weeks I scrubbed my underarms daily to get the build-up over the years to go away, my current routine is just wash every other day and use a slice of lemon for cleaning then moisturize with something raw like coconut oil and that's it. my sweat smells very subtle and actually kinda pleasant I'm gonna keep on doing this.

What were you doing while washing before? not judging btw, I'm genuinely asking because I was taught to use an exfoliating rag on some parts on my body, including my armpits. I also get sweaty and stinky easily so it's important for me

No. 177587


i don't live in a warm climate but is the exfoliation thing true? Terrible but i didnt have adults to Show Me How but i always figured wash cloths are too rough for daily use. Should i be using them? What are specific areas for wash cloth use?

No. 177591

Yeah, exfoliation rags/gloves are real. Idk where you live, but in America you can buy them basically anywhere that has a beauty aisle. Regular rags are still more way common though. I use it on my back, arms, legs and armpits. It's not good to use it everyday, but I do anyway. I do recommend them if you have body odor issues, or would just like to have softer skin, since occasional exfoliation is always nice. It's funny you say that regular rags are too rough, cause I always think they're too soft since I started using exfoliating rags lol.

I'm a turbo autist for even caring, but this is an edit. Mid century advertisements didn't have disclaimers on them, and even if they did, they wouldn't just randomly drop one in a box over the product illustration. That's not even a period accurate logo. Plus the ad copy underneath would be way more verbose than just STOCK UP ON [BRAND]. I sound like the irish stew copypasta but faked up 'old' ads really chap my ass.

Being a woman in this era was so bleak.

My grandmother only lost weight back then because she was on speed. Doctors would prescribe speed to overworked/tired housewives so they could keep their figure and have the energy to go into the workforce and then come home to do domestic duties. Not surprised that sugar was advertised as healthy, I bet a few spoonful of sugar was considered dainty back then. Nutritional information was abysmal and it's still being bought by major food conglomerate lobbies. Hell, I remember back in the 90s and early 2000s that fat was the boogeyman in food. My mom used to buy "low-fat" food that made up for lack of flavor from the fat removal with, you guessed it, sugar!

i don't know what to believe about corsets. apparently they were generally healthy the way women wore them (only taking off an inch from the waist, or not making it tight at all), and the dangers were only when women tightlaced. i don't see how working class or active women would be tight laced. but then again modern day corset users seem autistic and weirdly obsessed and could be bending the truth.

I guess it's similar to wearing high heels today. Definitely unhealthy if you overdo it and it restricts your movement, but people still push through the discomfort.
One day in the future people will be having all the same questions about high-heel shoes as we now have about corsets. I really can't see that type of misogynistic fashion last and sooner or later they will go the way of the corset.

This is why I refuse to wear high heels. I can't wait for the day women realise on a large scale that wearing high heels is a voluntary handicap.

I think about this too. I don't want kids, it's crazy to think about that if I was born just a handfull of decades earlier I could/would've been in a position where I had to marry and have a man's kids and have that be my life against my choice or be a social outcast.

some men have a fetish for that kind of thing (women's discomfort)
most women were not housebound dolls. the vast majority of women were working class, and they had to support their families on their meager earnings because many men made little money or just pissed their salary away. ofc many of these women were illiterate and had no time to document their lives so our impression of women in the past is based on the experiences of middle class or upper class women. the idea that women never worked is retarded and many men were way too useless to support a family on their own. also household work was pure drudgery back then

>I don't want kids either so I'm sure that if I was born in a previous era I'd become a nun.
Way OT but when I've thought about being born in earlier times, I've come to a similar conclusion. I'm lesbian and if given a choice between het-marriage-with-kids or celibacy, I'd def choose the latter. I have a vivid imagination so I could see myself living in a nunnery and daydreaming during prayers/chores to keep from going crazy. Also lesbian nuns were totally a thing so I might not even have to be celibate, lol.

No. 177968

my main concern would be strawberries are lightly acidic 3.0-3.5 ph heres some shit i copy pasta from paulas choice (skin brand) site so take from it what you will

Research has shown that mild disruptions in skin’s pH (such as from using an AHA or BHA leave-on exfoliant whose pH is 3.6 or a mineral sunscreen with a pH of 7.5) are temporary. The skin naturally equalises to its normal pH, typically within an hour. And there’s actually a benefit: Research has shown that acidic products stimulate skin to produce key substances it needs to look smooth, supple, and hydrated.

On the other hand, using highly acidic (pH 2.5 or lower) or alkaline (pH 8 or greater) products causes a more significant disruption in skin’s pH, so it takes skin longer to get back to normal.

Haha awesome. I think back before any kind of real sex education it was easier to interpret a lack of interest in men as some sort of virtuous chaste asexuality, so I'll bet a lot of lesbians wound up as nuns.

I wonder how much the unbridled gelatin consumption contributed to 20th century Americans being stereotyped as big, broad, toothy bastards.

It’s like some easy way to make aspic. And these jello monstrosities that are supposed to be aspics are just a holdover from before refrigeration. And even then it was only for the rich because of how it was made.
Before powdered gelatin, aspic was made from cuts of basically inedible animal cartilage (however you can use celery, too) that would take forever to cook.
So, these 1950s housewives knew that aspics were a symbol of wealth and status when their parents, grandparents or when they were children. While some can be eaten, mostly they were for decoration.
So it makes sense that they were popular.
We look back and wonder who tf ate that shit, and apparently not a lot of them did.

Tbf it’s chicken salad.
Now what would be horrifying is if it was a whole fucking chicken basted in some jello Mayo mix.

It is so hard to find places that sell this even though it's GOAT.

It's really good, anon. Aspic tends to be a bit softer than jello. There's kind of a mental block when you first try it because it's a texture that's more common in sweets, but it's a lot like a less fatty pate imo. It's full of collagen too, which is so good for you. /sperg

Tbf this stuff is all far more nutritious than a lot of the stuff we eat today. There's so much protein and collagen in these bad boys, it would give us all strong nails and glossy hair

Tretinoin does exactly this, as does hydrogen peroxide.
