Geeks don’t normally talk about skin care. Because Geek Culture is so obsessed with what we see and do on the screen that we have developed this massive problem of not taking care of the amazingness that we see in the mirror. We at GWPO belive that this view limits our ability  to show the outside world and more importantly ourselves how wonderful and fantastic we geeks really truly are.  And taking care of your skin is the most simplistic way to bring your best Geekself forward not for others but for you. Below I have compiled two products that are quick and easy to use. You will be back to gaming and anime in no time! So let’s get started with skin care 101!

Skin care

Mary Kay:  Products I recommend from this line that don’t require a lot of fuss are The Time Wise collection and the Velocity collection. Now these two products are pretty much the same except that time wise has an age fighting ingredient and the velocity has a slight fragrance and is minus the age stuff. They both are creams and can be used either at the sink or in the shower I prefer the shower with this type of cleanser, its a two birds one stone type deal. Clean body+ clean face= more time to watch anime and my bathroom counter not looking like a children’s wade pool also a plus. What also makes these two products so awesome is that they are 3-in-one, meaning they are a cleanser, toner, and a exfolinat in one bottle. Once you clean the face be sure to use the corresponding moisturizer cause mixing skin care products is bad juju. Skin care products is like mixing gas and fire you will hurt your skin if you do that. Also with Mary Kay you will have to go through a beauty consultant which is a blessing in disguise cause if you can get a class on just the skin care you can try all of their products before you get them and have a teacher who will show you  how to use it. Even if you don’t buy anything at least you get some knowledge on how to use skin care and what kind is for your skin type. But be sure you get a consultant that is local and is a Cadillac director or has been a director for at least 2 year

Aveeno: From this line I would recommend the Clear Complexion line You can choose from the cleaning pads (requires use of the sink) that has a smooth side and a exfoliant side, The Foaming Cleanser which is a liquid that becomes a foam when you press the pump and is excellent for removing makeup, There is also a cleaning cleanser and a bar, and of course the Clear Complexion moisturizer. These products can be bought at any drug store, grocery store, and places like Wal- Mart.

I hope these products help all my lovely Geeks out there become even more awesome!

Thankfully things are coming together for our Geek Fashion section. We hope to start that segment soon, and after what I heard the other day it is imperative we do. In one of my night classes there is this guy, we will call him Noob. Trust me after this story the name will apply. He is a fairly heavy gamer. From his own admittance he spends all his free time gaming, and the numbers he has given on his free time are quite high.

He stated one evening that he wants to find this elusive creature that most geeks and gamers claim to be after, a “Girl”. Now from previous conversations with this individual I know that he does not like to get out of the house and socialize. He claims to be content with his current methods of socializing, which are talking to his other gamer buddies on either his console or computer. During the conversation we were having with Noob he made the statement that he would have to cut down on his raiding time in order to spend time with this Girl that he claimed to want. Knowing the fact that he refuses to leave his games for almost any reason automatically placed this statement into the realm of facepalm worthy.

Once I managed to calm down from laughing hysterically at his statement I then asked Noob how he planned to meet and court a Girl since he had no intention of leaving his parents house. The brilliant plan that he has come up with is to have his sister, who is a nurse, bring home women that she works with and introduce them to Noob. Now I know many of you are no doubt, as I did, suspect that he was not serious. Noob was completely serious! He actually believes that this plan will succeed in finding him that “special someone”.

For anyone thinking that this is a good plan, stop that train of thought immediately. The only thing this plan is garuanteed to do is fail miserably. Before writing this post I even ran that plan by some women I know and some that I didn’t know to get a female perspective on this “plan”. Had Noob been there his little heart would have been crushed at the overwhelming ridicule of his “plan”. I hate to break it to all you geeks out there, but if you truly want to catch one of these elusive creatures you are going to have to actually go outside and put forth some effort. You don’t necessarily have to take them to Paris to woo them, but it will require more effort then just you had some time in between raids. I am not asking you to give up your gaming, I haven’t given up mine, but there is much more to life then just punching buttons on a controller.
