I normally would thread my upper lips but this pandemic have put me in a pickle. I did try hard wax myself couple of weeks ago on upper lips and eyebrows. Not sure about the long term maintainable but kind of enjoying trimmed feeling for over two weeks 😁

Wax, about once per month...it takes 15 minutes. Not a big deal.

Wax with drugstore Sally Hansen strips 1x per month. Takes 5 mins, stays red for an hour or so after, and it’s painful but super quick. When it grows back it’s not darker or thicker, very easy to maintain

I do this exactly. Hurts less than threading because peach fuzz especially hurts the most if I thread

Ik I'm not suppose to do this but I shave mine ahah

I’ve been doing this for years and it works for me

Waxing for 15yrs now, quick and efficient.

I use facial Nair and it works like a charm- was so hesitant about using it at first but I’ve had absolutely no side effects/discomfort and it gets rid of all hair with no pain in <10 minutes and is relatively cheap

Ugh yeah the smell definitely isn’t pleasant, and you do have to be careful to not let it sit for too long

I have I guess what’s considered peach fuzz but I have never and will never shave it

I dont do anything to the peach fuzz , i just pluck with tweezers the random long black hairs i get on my chin now :/

Hey Philly Fish, my wife and I are moving to Philly from DC this summer and we’re wondering where the hot spots are to live for young professionals. Living close to the 30th street station is important to us. So far, initial research brought up 1919 Market, The Harper, and Dalian as good places to rent. Does anyone have thoughts on these or other ideas on good places to live close to the 30th street train station?

Constantly find myself living life for the perception of others

For example, I do enjoy going out but I definitely have pushed myself to do it when I didn't feel like it, just to "show" that I am having fun

Maybe a good thing in the end, but I pushed myself in school and my career because I enjoy the respect I get from my accomplishments

& I think I only want to lose weight so others will think that I'm pretty

Sometimes this works for the better but it is exhausting. Has anyone overcome it?
