vulturechow: what's your routine with the microfiber cloth? my pores could use some help, i'd love to try this~

1. I massage some cleaning oil into the clogged parts of my face.

2. I run the microfibre cloth under hot water to get it warm.

3.I gently rub my face with the cloth, which pretty much gets rid of all the dark pores/filaments.

4. I wash the oil off of my face with a foam cleanser.

5. Tone and mousturise.

6. Wash cloth very thoroughly.

I do this about every 3rd day. It seems really great for getting rid of the obvious signs that maybe others don’t see, but that make me inclined to scrub or mess with my face.

I’m just putting this out there because someone, ages ago, recommended that cloggy pore people wash their faces gently with a microfibre cloth, the type designed for screens etc. and that was valuable information! Changed my life, etc. If you know cheap ways to be clean and healthy and pretty share ‘em. The world is full of stupid relentless propaganda telling us we need crazy expensive stuff to make ourselves presentable.

Useful information from my doctor: If you are on antibiotics/have the worst biome on the planet/use the shower in your gym or public pool a lot and you are vulnerable to skin issues of the fungal kind, wash vulnerable areas like bra region, feet and navel with an anti-dandruff shampoo.

Prevention is better than cure!

Very odd how that poster edited the quoted article from Northern Ireland to  Ireland, though - is making violent racism/xenophobia the problem of a nation, rather than the problem of a region, advantageous in some way?

Also interesting how the bloggers’ posts were talking solely about racism and white supremacy, even though xenophobia was clearly an issue too (which is why the news article talked about violence targeting central/eastern european immigrants as well — though it should not be forgotten that a lot of anti-CEE sentiment is rooted in anti-Rromani racism).

That whole post is strange. The photos are of African immigrants in the South, and the text is a segment of an article mostly about Asian immigrants in the North, but altered to remove the very important regional context which was the focus of the original article . I have no idea WHY they did it, but the whole thing is willfully decontextualising a bunch of different stuff. Why go to so much trouble?



The Violent Xenophobic Racism in Ireland

At 9pm last Tuesday, 44-year-old Chinese doctor, Wu Youzhong, went to investigate the sound of breaking glass outside his home in Coleraine, County Londonderry, in Ireland. When he arrived at his front door, he saw that the window had been smashed. An intruder then attacked him so violently that he had to be admitted to hospital for several days, and required consultation from an eye specialist. Dr Wu’s wife, Luo Ruoyin, said, “I heard he was just screaming in pain and I was scared. He was just holding his head and covering his eyes and blood was just running down everywhere.” The police are treating the attack as racially motivated; the couple, who have a two-year-old daughter, are reported to be intending to move away from the area.

The Chinese community in Ireland has long been a target of racial discrimination. Anna Lo, an Alliance Party politician born in Hong Kong who was elected to the Ireland Assembly in 2007, was the first politician from an ethnic minority at national level in Ireland, as well as the first East Asian to be elected anywhere in Britain. Her campaign was dogged by violent racism – including death threats – to the extent that she had to carry a panic alarm as a precaution. One far-Right website published pornographic images of Chinese women, alongside derogatory references to Anna Lo. “People from ethnic minorities are very frightened,” she said. “I have never seen ethnic minorities so fearful in Ireland.”

the crumbling myth of white supremacy. white supremacy is violent. white supremacy is destructive. white supremacy is pervasive. white supremacy kills.

The poster changed every instance of ‘Northern Ireland’ in the original article to ‘Ireland’. The 26 counties do have problems too, but due to unique historical circumstances Northern Ireland has especially serious problems with race. If you follow the link to the actual article you’ll see what I’m saying. This doctored article has been pointed out multiple times by Irish people on here. Please stop reblogging it!
