So you’ve been served after living out of country for a few years and have relocated back to Canada and regained your residence in your province. I’m going through this exact process right now so I’ve prepared a little bit of a guide as to what to expect and the general timeline. Due to the nature of this discussion, and being that I’m currently going through the process I’m only able to disclose general guidelines and will update after the process is over. Congrats on your divorce. Hopefully, you're at a good mental place and this is nothing more than a transaction for you at this point. Remember hating someone means you have enough respect to care for them. Advise to the wise, don’t. The matter gets a little more complicated when your spouse has dual nationality and property/accounts in another country. If you’ve been woke the whole relationship and keeping records of bank accounts, paystubs, credit cards and reward miles then your ahead of the game if they’ve already gone ahead and hidden those assets. Even abroad you are entitled to 50% of property or accounts, and lying in your disclosure is a criminal offense. So bring the receipts sis.
When you start to near that big 30, let me tell you as a gay man it’s always on my mind. My skincare game upped significantly from my early twenties, and I started to become super interested in actual research-backed skin care, mainly because a friend of mine introduced me to Paula’s Choice. Since that time I’ve combed endless Skincare Reddit’s and resources and have been regularly reading Dermatology textbooks. That doesn’t make me an expert, obviously. But in my quest for good skin I’ve definitely learned some pointers and how to better my skin. It’s been a long journey but I just passed the 7-month mark of nightly Tretinoin applications.There’s a lot of beneficial skincare ingredients, but none as backed my years of research as Retin-A (Tretinoin). It’s without a moment of hesitation that I can totally pin my “glowing skin” (Yes people say that) on this ingredient in particular. So let me begin just by giving my reasoning for making this about men. I am a man, a gay man, but a biological male lol. What’s different between men and women in Tretinoin use? Facial HairThis doesn’t seem like it would be a big factor when it comes to Tretinoin use, but it is. Especially when incorporating actives such as retinoids into your routine, including Tretinoin but also things like AHA/BHA, Vitamin C, etc. Not to mention Microneedling.I feel like I don’t have a lot of facial hair, mainly because I shave every couple days. Since starting Tretinoin there is no way I can shave daily. If I do so, I end up with highly agitated skin, and a care ingredients that much more irritating when combined with Retinoids. There’s plenty of things to factor in when adjusting a routine for Retinoid use, but I feel like those who shave are incorporating a step that has the potential to make other actives or other skin care ingredients that much more irritating when combined with Retinoids.
Woooo, it’s been a minute since I’ve written a personal post and spoken about some of the recent updates in life.A couple months back I started seeing a psychologist bi-weekly and was in a much different place then I was now. I was literally still hung up on bad memories and had formed some bad habits. It’s been a journey but I’m always working towards better stability and better mental health.
Disclosure: This is my own personal experience with Dermarolling and using a Dermapen and is in no way a message to people to go ahead and jump into dermarolling or using a dermapen without first educating yourself or being trained in how to use a Dermapen.*This Post is only about Microneedling. If you’re interested in Nano-needling, check out this post here. What You’ll Need• Derma Roller/ Microneedling Pen• Pure HA with no additional ingredients• Sanitized One-Time use Gloves• Rubbing Alcohol (70%) • Hand Sanitizer Wipes• Aquaphor for Aftercare• A sterile surfaceAreas of ApplicationSo actually dermarolling or collagen induction therapy can be performed almost anywhere on your body, probably with the exclusion of your eyelids, balls and Asshole (Ouch! Lol). Although relatively inexpensive to perform at home, it’s way too much effort for me to focus on areas other than the ones that I’m looking to improve.
So currently (Well since last year lol) I’m having a obsession with Skincare, having adopted the ten step Korean skincare routine, and really starting to try out different products and see which one adapts better into my routine.My skin is somewhat sensitive for guys skin, I don’t have acne but I’d say it’s more towards the oily side then dry. I discovered a online website in Toronto which sells Korean Skincare products online, for more then reasonable pricing and since it’s based in Toronto it’s literally only three days from ordering to actually receiving the order. This is actually amazing for me cause prior to that I’d either have to hassle with EBay, or Korean sites, internationally shipping from Korea or some reseller sites in the states and then having to pay custom fees on top of whatever the order costed In USD.
The following is a translation from the blog post about new updates to the Android app.Before this December update it was only possible to complete the following functions on the iOS App:• Adding/Editing Pages• Changing the design theme• Managing your plan (Regular/Premium)• Creating a new siteThese functions have now been added to the Android app as of the latest update.
So I’m a huge fan of facial masks, obviously from living in Asia so long it’s like, skincare essentials, ripping open that face mask dripping with sauce, trying to untangle that shit and then align it with your face and push those wrinkles out, stretching it over your face, repeating this process two or three times a week. So yeah, when I heard of the UFO device, only taking 90 seconds per mask - after having the Luna 2 For Men for a while I wanted to get on it.The price tag is a little more steep then the Luna for Men, but I’ve done some research prior to purchasing, also I’ve heard some great things online and I also love my Luna and other Foreo products.
