Yeah, yeah once a week. I'm a blog junkie.
I've been up all night studying. Thought I'd take a break for a quick update.
Day 22ish: GTL
I had a dentist appointment earlier today (yesterday now?) that I considered skipping due to my face not looking as fantastic as I'd like. Yes, it's not as dry as it was my first two weeks on the regimen and yes, the redness has died down significantly and I only had two pimples as opposed to the multitude last week, but still. Wasn't a fan of having a bright light shining down on all my little imperfections as my hygienist leaned close to hone in on my pearly whites. I ended up holding off on the regimen until afterward to reduce the flakes, redness, and the lovely Jersey Shore tan I have going on thanks to the moisturizer and jojoba oil.
So far I really like Dan's moisturizer, but I can't stand having my face look like a bad Snooki impersonation when I'm in public. I'm neither stupid nor a midget and I really have no desire for my face to be so blatantly bronze compared to my body's normal complexion. So, in the next few days I'm going to pick up some Olay Complete All Day UV Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin (SPF 15) and start using that in my morning routine, at least when I'm going out. I'm really hesitant to do so because my goal was to stop my breakouts before adding anything new to the regimen, but a lot of people recommend this product so I'll give it a try. Plus, I need something to protect my face from the sun. After all, I don't want to look like Snooki when I'm in my 60's either.
Just a side note, I really don't hate Snooki. I give her props for becoming famous and making bank off of reality TV. Good for you, Snooks. At the same time, it says a lot about our culture when we place more emphasis on entertainment, like television and sports, instead of slightly more important things (education, poverty, drug industry... just to name a few). College football coaches make millions of dollars a year. My friend wants to help children with muscular dystrophy and she will never make that much. It shouldn't be about the money, I know, but I do think there should be a better correlation between salary and job necessity. Only in a perfect world, right?
Sorry for the cynicism, but us broke ass college students get down sometimes. And it's my blog so I'll say what I want.
One last thing actually relating to skin- if you plan on using the Olay moisturizer, make sure the packaging has a green label that says classic gentle formula. Last year (I think) Olay released a newer formula of this moisturizer that irritated the skin of many long time users. The classic gentle formula was then released to make up for this mistake. This is pretty well known but just FYI.
Okay I really am going to study now,
