I don't believe that y'all truly believe that it's impossible to look polished without makeup

You've been conditioned, it's sad

man. its just the truth. 
why do we always have to be politically correct. Sleepy


That's your truth. And that's society's truth (beauty standards blah blah blah).

Doesn't mean everyone subscribes to it or agrees.

Don't tell that lie! I've been on one too many subway cars stuck next to someone who either hasn't used soap/deodorant in too long or who didn't buy a strong enough deodorant.

Cleaning yourself isn't optional but should be required. Deodorant (or its natural alternative) are not optional either.


Deodorants cause cancer. How dare you suggest people should get cancer because their natural body odor isn't pleasing to you.

I guess you missed the part you bolded that said "natural alternative".



uhm...she's being sarcastic

and thats fine if thats not your truth. 
but to say that its laughable is ridiculous. society has certain standards. 

if you're at a ball with all the fixings, and say that make-up is going too far is ridiculous.

Some people sweat a lot. Some people eat foods that give them a not so great odor. Some people don't wash properly or thoroughly or often enough.

That does not mean it's impossible to be clean and offensive odor free without using soap and deodorant. Some people can do it, some people can't.

i would say most ppl cannot. in the winter---most can get by maybe. in the summer time with humid east coast summers? no.

right, all you need is a clean presentation...clean face, clean teeth, neat hair, clean nails, pressed clothes....if you added a little make up, will you look better...yes...if you don't...you still look polished.  if your skin is like the people in the OP then make up is better bc your skin issues can be a distraction to some people out there...ive never felt distracted by someone's lack of use of make up unless there was something huge and distracting on their face...never just everyday blemishes. i've been far more distracted by certain make up applications.

if we're talking about a ball, a wedding, etc etc...then that's a whole different thing but im thinking more in terms of everyday.
