Two week update from the last skincare routine post: I’ve added an acid toner to my ritual (Mario Badescu’s Glycolic Acid Toner). I use this at night and Nars Skin Multi-Action Hydrating Toner in the morning. My skin feels like it’s kind of improving, but I’m hoping that by paying more attention and developing better habits, I’ll see the results down the road. If anything, I feel a little less overwhelmed by all the options.
Although the Rashida Jones post was the first time I saw Garance’s beauty minute, I hadn’t noticed that it was part of a series. Even better, the ladies that she showcases have all different skin types. Skincare tips for half Maori/half Japanese skin don’t exactly run rampant online. Even so, I’m pleased that I can get inspiration from ladies of all shades.
My next big skin focus will be improving what I eat. Nina Planck’s Real Food: What to Eat and Why was an inspiring/frustrating book about natural foods. I hope that, like the skincare routine, by just going for it I’ll be less intimidated.
