Ugly anons, tell me about the impossible beauty standards you wish you could fulfill, how you wish you could look like and why, what you would do with your life if you managed to look like your ideal selves.
My beauty standard for myself is something like an older Tadzio from the 1971 Death in Venice movie, a beautiful, androgynous young man, with a godly face and a slim and pale body.
Instead I was cursed with an average face, a big nose and acne as well as bacne, which is a death sentence for a vain, looks obsessed guy like myself. Despite knowing that beauty fades and means nothing in the end, I feel hatred and jealousy towards every handsome man I see, especially those who come close to my own ideals.
How is life for other average or below average looking wizards going, especially those who are vain and very appearance-oriented like myself? What impact does the feeling of never being good looking have on you? Does it bother you or have you made peace with it? How do you cope?

Best of luck getting rid of them. Be careful not to hurt yourself with that shit though.

I doubt I'll ever do it. I have no money for anything, and if I did have money I would probably just want to buy a gun so I could blow my brains out of my ugly caveman skull.

Average face means you are better looking than half the people out there, and no matter what someone is always going to be better looking than you.

Regardless of your appearance based on your genes, you can be attractive.

The most attractive quality is someone who is confident and secure in themselves. What kind of clothes do you wear? What kind of grooming do you do? Are you athletic?

If you are not happy with your appearance, do something about it. For starters you can go see a dr to get some acne medication. Can’t afford it? Bullshit make it a priority.

maybe if you are trying to attract other people, I just want to be pretty, none of that “confident” crap

>>207102
The bottle of skin peeling stuff was only like $18, I don’t usually have money either but my mom won some raffle at work and got $20 so she just gave it to me. I contemplated buying other things for a few weeks before setting on the beauty care product, it was totally worth it imo my skin looks really nice

 No.207115

>>207110
If you are not worried about what other people think why are you so distressed? Pretty, attractive, beautiful, sexy, hot, whatever you want to call it, other people won’t find you are any of those until you are ok with yourself.

Why don’t you want to be confident? That is like saying I don’t want to be happy, I don’t want to have security, etc.

 No.207116

>>207115
I'm not confident due to mental illness, so I don't really try. I spend 95% of my time alone in my house so it's not really worrying about other people, rather looking in the mirror and being able to look pretty increases my mood.

 No.207118

>>207116
Ok well get that acne medication then bud. It sounds like you do worry about other people, cause you hate us good looking dudes.

 No.207120

>>207118
I don't have acne at all and haven't for the past 4 years, I take lots of care fore my skin and hair, I probably spend a couple hours in the bathroom grooming ever day. I don't hate good looking people, I don't know where you read that, I simply want to be pretty.

I don't think you can call yourself "good looking" unless you are actually beautiful, otherwise the word just loses all meaning

When I'm in a good mood, I feel like I'm fairly handsome. Not beautiful or pretty like I would like, but decent looking.
When I'm in a bad mood, depressed, I sometimes can't even stand to look at myself in the mirror. I feel hideous.

 No.207434

>>207152
I feel the same. Sometimes I look into the mirror and think I’m alright looking, other days I want to off myself as to not having to look at my visage any longer.

me too, sometimes I feel like a super model and sometimes I look in the mirror and I feel like a disgusting creep, on the worst days I'll often punch myself in the face because I think I look so ugly, then I have to use cover-up on the bruise later because it looks ugly

Are you ugly on the inside too? Does it match your looks?

It honestly doesn't matter what your face looks like that much as long as you exercise and look healthy. Do you ever work out?

 No.207460

no, I don't want to 'work out' I want to be lithe and beautiful

 No.207462

>>207459
I have a good body and figure, shave regularly, take care of my hair and skin, learned to cook so I can eat healthy and work out. But my face is still bad. I look like someone photoshopped a stereotypical “crab loser freak” face on a great body. It’s quite bizarre looking. I’d look great if someone were to chop my head off and replace it with something passable.

I'm willing to bet if you stopped spending so much energy on tearing yourself down and used that energy on making yourself and people around you happy, neither you or anyone else that matters would give a shit if your face isn't perfectly proportioned. You only get one life, stop wasting it on telling yourself bad things. It's a waste of your time.

When you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. I guess this also applies to ourselves. It's difficult when all you want is to be able to love what you see in the mirror. I have scars. I'm hairy. I'm losing my hair. I'm losing weight (40lbs so far…) but it doesn't matter. No matter how fit I get I will never be pretty again. Time and genetics made sure of that.

OP should realize that beauty is fleeting. Sickness, old age and death await all.

Yes, and then you'll feel bad about yourself when your beauty is taken away by old age.

 No.207531

>>207528
You can be beautiful for a long time, it's just that most normalfags don't take care of themselves, so when you see a 30 year old normalfag on the street he looks like an obese dirty slob. It's entirely possible to still be beautiful and elegant at 30, maybe even older, and that's plenty of time, all you have to do is care about your skin mostly, and if you need a quick fix there's always makeup.

 No.207532

>>207531
Yep the official strategy to staying aesthetic in old age:
>don't drink or smoke regularly
>cleanse face morning and night
>wear sunscreen everyday
>moisturize at night
>clean up your eyebrows to frame your face
>take propecia to prevent baldness(its really cheap online)
>exercise and take care of yourself
Describing how much effort I put into looking nice I feel like I could fit in the "beautiful ones" category of calhouns experiments. I'm not sure if thats a good thing or not.

 No.207533

>>207532
I do pretty much all of that stuff too, it's a lot of effort but it makes me feel good, still not as beautiful as I would like to be though, but I am still working on things, like the other day I cauterized a broken vein on my nose with a hot needle, and I still need to dig some ingrown hairs out of my legs(anyone have any idea how to do this?) so I can shave properly.

I don't get how you can wear sunscreen every day. That sounds so tedious having to reapply it all the time and I hate how sticky it makes you.

That's the only thing in that list I consider outright terrible advice. I wasn't going to bother bringing it up but since you mentioned. That garbage is poison and no hair on earth is worth taking pills for. If it's thinning, it's thinning. Have your bald head and own it.

I am actually pretty bad about sunscreen, I just wear pic related in the morning. Unless im swimming or something then I wear something more hard core. I barely go outside or by windows so I don't think im too much at risk to turn into a wrinkly baked potato.
>>207536
I'm not going to say those people are lying but it actually increases your testosterone levels, idk how it would break your dick and even so i'm celibate.

I didn't develop any ED but I would prefer that over being bald or a receded hairline.

Look that drug up, it goes way beyond erectile dysfunction. That is poison and you have to be quite the vain, dumb fellow to put your hair over overall health, but that's just how I see it. I hope you don't get fucked in the long haul from it and my honest advice to all wizards reading is to avoid pharmaceutical poison as much as possible, specially if it's something shallow such as the case here.
