The bald looks more alpha despite his hair loss. The guy with hair looks and talks like he could get cast in The Big Bang Theory, so I think I know which one you prefer :P
Well, now I‘m curious as this might be conclusive as to how I am seen to perceive/„measure“ attractiveness when looking a little beyond looks, especially since I‘m assuming you base this on observations rather than explicit statements from me?

sunscreen im currently using:



cant remember if this is the exact one since i ordered it a while back, but it spreads on my face with no residue and doesnt leave a white cast. doesnt dry my skin out either, but it has a citrus fragrance that i'm sure it could do without. a lot cheaper and cosmetically better than some american high end brands like eltaMD

Not long ago men were out hunting and providing for their children while his lovely wife made a nice home cooked dinner.

Now we have men buying cremes for their beauty.
The Gillete ad wasn't even necessary. We are already soyed.
Not sure how serious you are here, but given how these sites usually go, I'm guessing 100%

There's this weird thing where people think it's an either/or scenario instead of both.

You can actually care about your appearance and reap the benefits of doing so without being a soyboy. I mean, I know guys who won't drink tea because apparently that's "for faggots"...somehow.

It's just cope. Guys will think I'm cool as shit and women will want my dick if I act like an actual caveman.

I mean, what kind of homo has his teeth whitened?

I didn't say that's its a black and white scenario. You just interpret it like it was.

I just pointed out how our society shifted and we still have "hunter" DNA in us but what men do this days to "look good" is insane and some people not long ago would say we are now faggots. Is it healthy for men to care so much about looks? Probably not in my opinion but you have to adapt to the society you live in and we do live in a hardcore capitalists dating scene which the not good looking ones get cut out to breed their genes.

Would I have stopped showering 50 years ago? Probably not. Would I have shaved my head instead of crying about hairloss? Probably yes.

My dead paternal grandfather rocked the elaborated combover before he started wearing a wig back in the 1960's. I would have done the same in his shoes.

Humans fundamentally don't change much through time, men and women have always cared about looks.

If you care in this era due to your specific personality, you most likely would have cared 50 years ago.

I'm using it as well. Only minus is that is contains alcohol. Other than that its an excellent sunscreen, very cheap, very lightweight, and good UV filters. No white cast

Nope, UVA (aging rays) are present all year round, whenever there is daylight outside, and they also travel through window glass. This is not something I have made up, but something that scientists and researchers almost uniformly agree on. Read some studies about this and hear when dermatologists have to say.
wat? I never said it wasn't. I explicitly said you're not outside in the sun as much during the winter as during summer. If you're outside the entire day skiing or whatever it would be a different story.

The rest I agree with though, our bone structure development is highly important in terms of how well we age. The women that has aged the best are those who have kept soft facial features, even if they have some degree of wrinkles/sun damage.
However this thread was dedicated to skin alone. I know we cannot choose our bone structure and how it will develop, but we can choose to take care of our skin. A good broad spectrum sunscreen that doesn't contain harsh chemicals and alcohol will go a long way, along with other sun protective measures like clothing, hats, glasses and seeking shade.
Ok, so we can establish that we agree on something. Although you can somewhat impact your bone structure development. I won't get into it as it's beside the point.
Your view of suncsreen is simplistic and one dimensional. You've ignored the impact that sunscreen has on your hormones and the environment. You like to sound like you're informed on the subject, so I don't know if you purposely leave this out or not. By pushing sunscreen which not only contains hormone disrupting ingredients but also lowers vitamin D levels from the actual sun protection you're creating soyboys (and intersex fish).

We both live in Norway, and here is is pretty much impossible to get a sunburn during the winter because the UVB radiation is so low, the exception may be if we're out skiing on a sunny day. However UVA radiation is constantly with us, no matter the season. That is where a broad spectrum sunscreen comes in. I know you wanna be right about this but you're just not :lol:
I'm not sure what you mean by this. But looking at all the above it seems like you're projecting.

Julius Caesar wore a wreath to cover his balding thousands of years ago, but just 50 years ago, you'd have just "shaved it bro"?

Really? I feel like you are the only who always wants to be right and sound informed. If someone is worried about hormonal effects of using sunscreen they could go with a physical sunscreen that does not absorb into the skin. Besides, https://www.skincancer.org/healthy-life ... n-d/damage
I wear sunscreen daily and never had any issues with my vitamin D levels. Anyway, I am just sharing my knowledge, it is up to each and everyone what they choose to do with it. I am not going to push sunscreen down people's throat if they do not want it.

I sometimes think that all these chemicals people are applying to their skin is actually doing more damage then the sun itself.

We are not meant to cake our faces and torsos in this concoction of chemical substances we can't even pronounce.

And going by that jambalaya of gunk that EvilLocks uses; she should look no older than 17.
I call bullshit on all this stuff!
