Welcome Magnanimity! My best advice with the pheros is dive right in. It takes some trial and error to find your sweet spot. Make sure you let us know how you like them. Look forward to getting to know you :019-[Drooling]-[EmoticonKing.co

Welcome welcome WELCOME!!! Glad to see another new face around here!

 

As for the phero blends, everyone's dosage will be different.....start with a little and work your way up.....in many cases, with these blends, "less is more". You will have to experiment to see what works for you. And, we are here if you need help while experimenting!

 

Looks like you have a very nice batch coming your way, from work blends to playtime blends, and everything in between.....enjoy!!!

HI,

 

Thanks all the forum members for the warm welcome and allowing me to share my world with you all. its wonderful to get know you all guyz oops Girls.... :abfx:

 

I wanted to reply separately to all your posts but i am not able to figure out how the quote works here. i am sorry, but i also read it in the help section , but i am just not getting it. it is embarrassing but it is true. lol..

 

Anyhow, hope will learn that soon.

 

JFYI i already had my arsenal of pheros & perfume,s when i joined the forum, sitting in my closet. I tested some pheros & want to share the experience with you all. Pls advise wherever you find appropriate. looking forward to it.

 

Goddess... i too love feminity, & gradually it is becoming a natural part of me.

 

AS you are interested, will keep sharing what i have learnt so far. not only about beauty but about confidence, strength, sensuality, womanhood, attractiveness, charm, seduction. all about being enchanting, captivating, magnetic, irresistible, unforgettable women. by yourself, to your man & for the world....

To start with, as feminity starts with visual pleasure. a female must look good. Naturally beautiful features are advantage but i female can still look attractive & beautiful if she knowa how to be & carry herself as a female. If you are neat, clean, tidy, dressed in anything that is well washe & ironed, & being confident & glowing, you will look attractive.... to any male or female.

 

So this is something very unusual skin cleansing method.... it works wonders. i personally have done it, it is amazing. believe me, as weared it sounds, but the results are unbelievable. Pls don't judge it untill you try it.

 

here it goes.... I am sorry Mara , its too long but i want to share it with ladies.... i read it looon back & have it in my machine. so uploading it here for ladies. though i have all the details to help understand the process but i am telling as much is required to see the results for now..

 

 

 

The Oil Cleansing Method

 

Do not be afraid of applying oil to your face. Oil, alone, will not bring you blemishes. Pimples, cysts, zits, blackheads, whiteheads...these are a result of several different factors including hormones, bacteria, dead skin cells and the buildup of these factors. Your skin naturally produces oil because it needs it. It is not a malicious force to be reckoned with; it is there for the benefit of your skin, allowing your largest organ to function properly. It is naturally occurring. Not only does your natural oil help lubricate, it also heals, protects, and moisturizes your skin so that it may function properly. Properly functioning skin is beautiful, clear, and glowing. Learning to work with your skin, not against it, will save you tremendously.

 

While we're talking about clarifying your skin externally, we must also touch on the internal aspect. WATER! Drink no less than 8 glasses of water a day. If your skin has issues with blemishes, drink up! Water will help release and remove the toxins from within, lessening the load on your skin to push the toxins out. Carry a bottle of water around with you throughout the day so water is always available.

 

Now, to the main point

 

The basic concept of this skin care and cleansing method is that the oil used to massage your skin will dissolve the oil that has hardened with impurities and found itself stuck in your pores. The steam will open your pores, allowing the oil to be easily removed. Should you need it, the smallest drop of the same oil formula patted over damp skin will provide the necessary lubrication to keep your skin from over-compensating in oil production.

 

We will need two oils. The first, and most importantly, is Castor Oil. If you don't have this medicine cabinet staple already, it can be found online or in the laxative section of your grocer or drugstore - usually bottom shelf. Castor Oil has potent anti-inflammatory properties, but is also healing and cleansing, which is why we're focusing on this oil as our primary oil.

 

Though it may be our most important oil, we won't be using it in the amounts that we will the other oil (or combination of oils for those who want to take this a step further). A little bit of Castor Oil goes a long way and too much will leave you, surprisingly, with dry skin.

 

Since Castor Oil is so thick and its cleansing properties so strong, we need to dilute it with another oil, thinner in consistency, but no less nurturing to the skin.

Sunflower Seed Oil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Both are wonderfully caring oils for skin application, but I've found that Sunflower Seed Oil has a more luxurious feel for massage. It sinks into the skin better, aiding the castor oil in transportation deep into the pores and allowing it to draw the dirt and grime to the surface of your skin where it can be wiped away. The essential fatty acids, though they are not naturally occurring in the body, are a necessity for the health of our cell membranes. These acids help restore the skins natural moisture balance and help prevent unnecessary dryness. The secondary oil that you choose is entirely up to you and should be determined by your skins needs and the properties of that oil. Choose from natural, cold-pressed vegetable oils, as these have nutrients, vitamins, and fatty acids that mineral oil and other refined oils don't. You may even have these oils in your kitchen, as they're used for cooking, as well! For the sake of explaination, from this point on, we'll say "Sunflower Seed Oil" in place of "Secondary Oil." Remember that Sunflower Seed Oil may be replaced by your vegetable oil of choice.

 

Your Personal Oil Blend

 

The starting point for creating your own, personalized skin cleansing oil blend is knowing your general skin type. Those with dry skin will want less Castor Oil. Those with oily skin will want to blend in more. Finding your perfect combination of oils will probably take a little bit of trial and error, so start with very small batches. Once you know what your ratio of oils looks like, you'll be able to blend much more at a time for convenience.

 

Some suggestions in creating your blend of deep cleansing oil:

 

Oily Skin: Try a blend of 30% Castor Oil to 70% Sunflower Seed Oil.

Balanced Skin: Try a blend of 20% Castor Oil to 80% Sunflower Seed Oil.

Dry Skin: Try a blend of 10% Castor Oil to 90% Sunflower Seed Oil.

You can vary these percentages to match your own skins needs. If your skin feels too dry, you'll need to use less Castor Oil and replace it with more Sunflower Seed Oil. Keep in mind that Castor Oil is the drawing, cleansing, and purging oil for your pores. The Sunflower Seed Oil is to dilute the Castor Oil in viscosity (thickness) and additionally provide moisture, nutrients, and other benefits. My own, personal blend, for my sometimes oily, sometimes dry, frequently flakey, and easily irritated skin is about 25% Castor Oil to 75% Sunflower Seed Oil. I mix and store my mixture in a clean four-ounce flip-top bottle for convenience. When you go to replenish your oil blend, I suggest cleaning your bottle thoroughly with dish soap or the dishwasher. Better yet, if you can replace the bottle, this is ideal. We want to be extremely cautious in introducing bacteria to the bottle.

The Oil Cleansing Method

 

First and foremost, this is typically done in the evening, prior to bed. There should be no need for deep cleansing in the morning if you're waking up with skin cleansed the night before. In the morning, a quick wipe with a warm washcloth should suffice. We don't want to overcleanse our skin as this will serve only to irritate and cause more oil production. The objective of using this method is to deep clean while balancing our skins oil production at the same time.

 

You'll need a soft washcloth, your oil blend, and hot, running water.

Pour a generous puddle of oil into the palm of your hand. Roughly, the size of a quarter, but more is acceptable. Rub your hands together to warm the oil and smooth over your face.

Begin massaging the oil into your face. This will remove makeup, dirt, and other impurities, so there is no need to use a makeup remover or wash your face prior to the massage. I've found that this removes even my stubborn waterproof mascara and concealor.

Using slow, firm motions across the skin, massage the oil deeply into your pores. Take your time and focus on your problem areas. You want the oil to work into your pores so that blackheads and the like can be dissolved and steamed away.

As you're massaging, let your mind drift off to something calming and breathe deeply. Take this time to relax and release some of the stress that your body is harboring. Sit down, breathe deeply, and take your time. Give the oil enough time to work on dissolving the impurities in your pores and give yourself enough time to unwind. Picture what your face would look like if it were completely clear and free from blemishes. Focus on that image and know that it is attainable. Trust that it is attainable. Accept that it is attainable. You can have clear skin, free of blemishes and you will have clear skin, free of blemishes. Focus on perfect skin and breathe deeply.

Once you're satisfied that your pores are saturated and you're feeling calm, pick up your washcloth and soak it in clean, steamy water. We want the water to be warm enough to open your pores and remove the oil. Cool water will not open your pores, nor will it remove the oil efficiently. We're not scalding our skin, we're steaming to coax our pores to release the oil carrying the impurities. We're essentially steaming our skin as an esthetician would, but without the luxury of a steam machine.

Hold the washcloth to cover your face. Allow it to stay until it cools. You will feel your pores releasing the impurities. Wipe the oil gently away and rinse the washcloth well in hot, running water. Hold the washcloth to your face again, allowing it to cool. Wipe gently, rinse well, and repeat two or three more times. Avoid any temptation to scrub, as you'll find it's completely unnecessary and your skin will be soft, smooth, and free of flakes without the additional manual exfoliation and irritation that will result. Impurities, dead skin cells, and bacteria will be gently swept away.

Have no fear of the oil, as the steamy washcloth will remove it. The Castor Oil, though it is an oil, will help with the removal of the other oils, as well. It is our main cleansing oil and is easily removed with warm water.

If your skin feels tight, take a tiny drop of your oil blend, rub it between your clean, damp palms and pat it onto your damp skin. Gently massage any oil residue into your skin so there is no film of oil left sitting on the surface. Your skin should now glow!

 

This deep cleansing method should be done regularly, but not too frequently. You'll know if you're deep cleansing too frequently by the dryness that your skin will exhibit. Don't be surprised if you find you've unblocked an oil flow for the first few days. Once you remove the plugs from your pores, they will begin functioning properly again. Perfect skin won't happen overnight and while it should take a few massages to achieve your goal, you should notice a huge difference in your skin after the first deep cleansing massage. Give your skin a few days to adjust and adapt to being clean and clear of blockages; understand that the new oil coming from your skin is actually a good sign and will balance out very shortly. You'll find redness and irritation subsiding. You'll find your skin losing that "congested," and thick feeling.

 

 

 

Hope it benefits all.

 

Lovingly

Hi Magnanimity, welcome to the forum and thank you for sharing the oil cleansing method. Will have to read it slowly to digest it.

 

The threads in the Pheromone Arena should provide you reports of hits by the forum users. As for the amount to use, you'll have to find your sweet spot thr trial and error.

 

I can't wait to read your reviews and reports. Have fun and I know you will!

WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME!! (love your avitar) I read your post on practicing feminity with great interest!

 

 

 

 

The first time around though I missed your oil cleansing post! Love reading about this method and I want to try but am hesitant. My skin is always shiny-all over. I use mineral makeup (pure, not chemical) and I know the first assumption is that my skin is dry and therefore overproducing oil. I've tried to combat that in the past by moisturizing with you name it (oil free, non oil free, high quality, macrobiotic methods, etc) to no avail.

 

 

This doesn't happen anywhere else on my body, only the face. It literally looks like my face has a layer of grease over it. :-( I've just been using paper blotters for damage control.

 

Do you think this method would actually work for me? I am prone to horrible breakouts of the gross, cystic acne that never surface, but remain under the skin in angry red bumps. (Derm determined that these are hormonal and topicals won't work)

 

But my skin plagues me. I finally broke down and accepted taking a round of antibiotics and my skin is finally clear after almost 2 years. But I hate the idea of ingesting them and can't stay on them forever. I am well hydrated, very good diet, and exercise regulary.

For what it's worth I have heard great things about oil cleansing for oily skin. I can't speak to this particular method as I have never tried it. When I was a makeup artist I usually suggested Shu Eumera and was always told it worked wonders.

Ha! too funny. I do use Shuemura liquid foundations sometimes. It's supposed to dry into a more matte, powdery finish. The lady at the Shu counter suggested it to me just for that reason (my oily skin).

If you are luck enough to live near a counter then ask them for a sample. If you take a small bottle they will make you one from the tester.

Oil as a cleanser for oily skin makes rather good sense actually.

 

You can dissolve what something is made of by using what it is based on. Like - nail polish is acetone based, and is dissolved by acetone. Water based stuff dissolves in water, oil based stuff dissolves in oil. It's probably better than using a harsh detergent-based cleanser which could make the skin flakey as well as oily.

 

But you'd probably want to use a gentle toner afterwards though, wouldn't you?

Oh sure Bumbob, will write you about it if i get little time this weekend:)

 

Just a quick tip, Keeping your back straight, (in its correct natural S shape) while walking, standing, taking, even sitting, makes you feel(inside) & look (outside) more confident & assertive. we know it all but tend to forget. Practice it everyday, until it becomes your habit & see the change.... when you deliberately keep your back straight, it affects your unconsciously. we females tend to hide our breasts unconsciously from public gaze by dropping our shoulders forward... which loosens our confidence too... if you try to sit comfortably you can't be attractive, so dont try being too much comfortable sitting in front of a man(specially in initial meetings...) unless you are in bed... ;)

 

To a man nothing is more attractive then a confident, assertive female. they just love it. In fact when you pull your shoulder back & correct your S shape, it makes you breasts look more firm & attractive.

Practice it consciously girls & let me know if it helps or even if it doesn't...... :lol:

we will discuss it more.

Hello dear,

 

As we all are here we will keep talking about feminity. just posted something on it.

 

See if you skin cond. is hormonal then better take medical treatment.

 

or try this method at least once only on forehead, to see if it helps or increases your eruptions.

 

Jojoba oils is very good as it is very similar to human sebum. see if it works for you N Let us know. else i will lokk for something here which might be of some help for you.

The only makeup I use is concealer to cover dark circles and at the base of my nose, darken my brows and line my upper eye lid. The last time I bought a lipstick was before I move here and that's 10 years ago!

 

Anyway, to keep it short and simple, I belong to the school of thoughts that I should not use or use too much makeup for fear that people who are used to seeing me with makeup will think I look sick on days that I don't use makeup. What are your thoughts on this?

Yes, JOC .

 

I do agree with you 100%. i have experienced it myself.

 

I haven't used makeup on myself till one and half years back. i used to line my upper eyelids only on wedding or special occasions. havn'nt used lipcolours, even after i was married and had my daughter. my coworkers used to be after my life to atleast apply some gloss, but i was like, no i am fine , i want to look natural. & people in my family & very close friends used to say u look so good without makeup. (it was the way i wear my clothes & carry myself).

and i used to think in those times that why people wear makeup & does it make any difference in them. i always thought that make shows, so anyways when you wear it , it is obvious that you are made up, which personally i dont agree to. to me it was like being fake... but i have myself done make up on many people, and honestly i do it good. i havre that artistic sense so without officially learning it i do it.

 

but 18 20 months back i had this change in me. one of my coworker bought me different coolours eye pencils & forced me to wear those. gradually i moved from only black to brown, sapphire, grey & then dark green. gradually i started applying glosses & lip colors. i use natural tones to my make up that still looks natural & not dramatic.

 

on side notes - (but i admire girls who wear lots of makeup, & look gorgeous, cos it needs a lot of courage & confidance to do that, which most people lack. they wear it, without being conscious, maybe cos they know & have the ability to detach themselves from it. they don't relate their identity with makeup. people like me & you does it.

nevermind, we are good too....:D )

 

i do agree that when you dont apply you look completely different, but that is also a fact that you really feel good about yourself, when you apply.

 

See JOC, when you get ready, you feel good. dont get ready necessarily for your man or for the rest of the people. but get get ready for yourself. it does make a difference in your attitude about yourself & life. don't show it to the world, but do it for yourself. you are worth it. :) see yourself in mirror & praise yourself & be happy.

 

I'll suggest something about that sick look. Apply only Kajal(indian Kajal) only in your water line. take some lip balm, mix some homemade cinnamon powder in it. apply on your lips rub for 15 secons & remove the small flakes, if any, from lips by rubbing gently with finger tips only.( you will get tingling effect). this is the same effect you get from some lip plumping glosses or lip colors.( now you know what's in them, there) this will naturally plump your lips(cinnamon does it) & enhances your natural lip color. & you are ready for the day.. nothing more but you will still look attractive & not done artifically. reapply only balm when you feel the lips are dry again.

 

And you can make some homemade lipcolor like this. i have taken a smallish pot & taken out some balm from the regular jar in it., have added cinnamon in it N yo, it pop goes in my hand bag. whenever i feel i apply it on the go as well.

 

i agree with your school of thought that natural is best, thumbs up.....

Thanks for tips on lips. I'll have to reread that and the oil cleansing method and try them out.

 

I bought some makeup from MAC about a month ago. It was because of the my extra duties to host a 4-day event.

MAC counter staff is always more hip than others. I bought face powder, eye liner gel, a skintone lipstick and a bottle of eye makeup remover and it cost me almost $200. Yes, imported products are really expensive here. Anyway, I'm glad that I'm still using these products (less the eye gel).

 

I love the way I look after given a makeover at the shop but having to go thr all those hassle ..... I guess I'm just not ready.

 

I started going to the beauty salon for facial in Sept. I guess I have only had about 10 facials in my life. I love the effects of the recent 'treatment' I started. It's based on the accupressure points on the face and two special sticks (one almost like a fat white board marker and another like a comb without the teeth) are used to massage my face. My face feels so relaxed and it actually glows and looks fairer over the next couple of days!
