Malory, you might try posting in the Ask Phoenix thread in the makeup section of the "non-hair" forum. It's toward the bottom.

Also, when you do that, if you could post a picture it would help. Phoenix (whose new name is The New Black) is great with make up.

Also, even if your thyroid output is borderline, that seems to me something that should be corrected, especially if it's affecting you this way.

Best of luck!

Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
