Post of The Month (August)

Meggles is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"my recent post and a comment from another user has made me realise that self care is so important.

I wanted to start a thread in the Health and Wellbeing section of the boards about self care.

Self care is provided by you, for you

I know a lot of us are struggling at the moment with different aspects of our own lives, and sometimes we get so lost in these we forget to take time for ourselves. This tread is, a Reminder to you to take time out for yourself during the difficult times.

down in the comments I would really love for people to share ideas and tips about self- care. to remind ourselves and others in the community.

My way of self care when i recognise ( or someone recognises i have neglected myself) is:

Take a walk and admire whats around me ( take as long as needed)
treat myself to a bath with a bathbomb and bubbles ( bubbles are important)
make a hot drink and just sit down with a film.

Please feel free to share your ideas!

The Mix have a guide to self-care which you can find here."

  • How long do you use the same razor blade?

    I just noticed today on a pack of new blade cartridges that it says to replace every 3 shaves. To me that seems excessive. Then again I use mine about 10 times, and knowing me thats probably excessive on the other end of the scale. So how long do you use yours for.
    Of all the mistakes you've made, the best are yet to come.

        Until I think it's not gonna be very good at shaving effectively.

          Until it doesn't shave clean enough. If I changed it every three times I would spend a fortune on blades.

            Yep, I use them until they become too blunt to do anything.

              every 2 shaves or so. mind you, i dont shave very often, and when i do ive got a lot of fairly coarse hair on my face, so its just the best way really .

              Although, used a disposable razor last week, and I liked it a lot. Perfectly sharp every time? Yes please.
              Be happy, accept those you care for, and live your life in a manner true to yourself, those you care for, and the values you hold dear to your heart.

                Depends how much i am shaving.

                  ill use razors on my legs and underarms for longer than ill use ones on my bikini area. I often have 2 razors on the go for that reason.
                  for bikini area probably 4 shaves. For legs, until it starts grazing me and doesnt shave smoothly. Sometimes Ill just use the razor thats been bikini`d out as a leg razor for a while afterwards

                    I tend to use the same razor about 3 times. Any less, it would be really expensive.


                    • #11
                      The razor I use for my bikini area gets used once and once only. For my legs and underarms I use it until it it does not shave clean.

                        I use my razor till its blunt and starts to pull..........bit stupid really but I hate shaving and only do it every 2 weeks if I can be bothered.....
                        Disposable razors are evil and should be culled though....

                            i use it till it isnt shaving as well, having said that if i have a night out or a special occasion planned then i use a new razor regardless

                              Well when everybody says, I use it till it doesn't shave well anymore, how long is that generally?
