Our caloric needs drop as we age. So if you’re eating about the same as you did when you were younger, you’re probably just eating too much for your current needs.

It sucks, but we shorter older women just don’t need nearly as much food as most people.

I guess it’s each to their own. I personally don’t like foundation on my skin as prefer my natural base. no foundation for me means shorter daily makeup routine, saves me money, no need for touch ups etc I only wear concealer on my under eye which doesn’t budge throughout the day

I also don’t wear tinted spf, bb cream, or tinted moisturiser as Im generally not a a fan for it to be on my face

So why is it important to you to say “no foundation”? Like why does that matter?

It reads like saying “no bronzer ever”! As in, it makes no difference at all. Every single makeup product is a choice and a way to get a specific look. If that’s not the look you’re going for that day, you skip it.

I guess I just don’t see the need to announce that you omitted one optional makeup product.

But it’s clearly important to you to make that distinction. I just don’t get why.

Make it make sense! 🤣

She says journey so it probably took some hurdles before she could go 'no foundation '

I personally suffer from this. I had acne and dark spots from hormonal imbalance (PCOS) and Ive relied heavily on foundation. The few times I didn't have foundation on I was told that I "didn't look human" and someone also told me just removing my foundation and lipstick showed my true form which was "scary". It takes time for some people to show their bare skin, especially women. Im personally still waiting for the day that I can go 'no foundation' without people commenting on my skin

I’m so sorry people were mean to you about your medical condition. That’s terrible.

I'd guess you are vastly underestimating the calories you are consuming.

Here's a funny article that gets into it a bit.

Scrubs aren’t great for your skin. They don’t really exfoliate as much as make little scratches.

They FEEL great because it’s a nice feeling for the skin to be scratched.

But they don’t improve the health of the skin, and neither does excessive exfoliation. A gentle washcloth a couple times a week is all the “exfoliation” you need on your body, and still too much for some skin types.

Totally worth it!

I got a silk pillowcase free from Sephora years ago and loved it. Bought a couple more.

Then I tried satin and it’s NOT the same.

The silk ones last for ages, even washing them with your regular laundry. Highly recommended.

Yes, it could cost you your job. I hope you pass the drug test.

As far as how to talk to your doctor, be honest with her that you want to try THC/CBD/whatever. She may be ok with it. Or not.

Just remember that whatever she tells you may not even be her medical opinion. She may not be able to prescribe you certain meds if you piss dirty without losing her license/job.

So what happens in the doctors office can be reported back to my job?

Maybe not directly. But your job can make you test at any time with no notice. So every day is a risk.

Yes. Habits are harder to break the longer you have them, plus you lose some muscle mass as you age which means you burn less. Not to mention hormonal shifts, including hypothyroidism, are more common as you age.

It’s not impossible or anything like that, but you have more working against you as you age.
