Current routine 7/19/2015

I’ve been lurking on r/skincareaddiction and learned about niacinamide, the secret ingredient in StriVectin which unfortunately is still sold around here to unsuspecting dowagers.

Morning Routine

– Salicylic acid wash (it’s summer)

– Random Korean style toners that my friend had too much of

(this is a placeholder for when my Vitamin C serum arrives)

– Caffeine roller and LiftAffine, V line serums, as needed. But since losing weight I’ve been needing this a lot less.

– CeraVe PM lotion with Niacinamide 4%

– Azaderm 20% Azelaic Acid

– SPF30 Mineral Sunscreen, any generic brand that I can grab on sale

– Body sunscreen for my body

Evening Routine

– Salicylic acid wash

– Salicylic acid exfoliating pad

– Careprost

– Random toners or a NuPore Sheet Mask depending on the day

– CeraVe lotion with Niacinamide, or 10% Lactic Acid lotion depending

– Tretinoin 0.05 on face, arms and chest

– Mitchell’s Precious gel (afaik, 2% hydroquinone)

– A little SkinLite on trouble spots


– Diet support every other day, Green Tea Diet pill

– Nootropic stack (piracetam, bacopa, L-theanine, lecithin)

–┬áMulti vitamin

– “Water pill” as needed >_<

– A low cal and low carb diet

This works.

– I did not get darker than my winter color this summer. The general public gets darker. I stay the same hue.

– A younger, attractive man actually hit on me yesterday and I feel like a cougar now.
