So far I really like:
  • Hada Labo Gokujyun Moist Lotion (toner)
  • Stratia Skin Liquid Gold
  • Stratia Skin Soft Touch AHA
  • Skinfood Rich Aloe Cream
  • Cerave Moisturizer + Cerave Healing Ointment for a sleeping mask
For overnight on the lips:
  • Mist with water or toner
  • Mizon Hyaluronic Ultra Suboon Cream
  • Aquaphor or Cerave Healing Ointment
The Face Shop Nokyong Contour Lift Serum is good, but I'm not sure if I love it. As for the Missha serum/ampoule, it seems to do just as good as The Face Shop serum. The Face Shop serum is cheaper than the Missha....but I'm sure I'll try a different serum when either one runs around. I'd like to try something from Holy Snails. At this point, I realize my skin has gotten much better just from taking iron daily.

So within the last couple of weeks I came across some specific information that made me realize just how heavy my periods are and that I might actually be anemic. At first I bought a drugstore 45mg slow release, figured that would be too much, then switched to Garden of Life's Healthy Blood supplement. Not only do I have more energy, but...I think it's making my skin suddenly look a million times better. I had thought maybe it was the new serum I'm using, but that didn't seem quite right. Then someone talked about skin dullness on the AB subreddit and how it might come from being anemic. Ooooh.

See, all this time I thought maybe it was a damaged moisture barrier, but I don't have the symptoms for it. No flaking, no redness, no stinging with moisturizers. Now that I'm taking the iron, my skin is absorbing everything I put on it so easily. D: Talk about 'chok chok' after my routines. Dang!

I listened to the first 3 chapters of Knowing God by J.I. Packer this morning on the way to work. Good so far. I actually feel pretty joyful since figuring this crap out. I felt bad in the past for obsessing about things and then losing interest, but it's just the natural ebb and flow for me. Take advantage of it while I can, and then patiently wait for things to loop back around.

I still think MBTI is pointless right now. I've tried reconsidering my type, but things aren't clicking yet. Not to mention the whole thing gives me a headache to think about it, so it's not time anyway. I'll just go on being myself, and we'll see what jumps out?

I was thinking maybe the BHA and AHA doesn't do much for me because I'm not using a ph adjusting toner first like I'm supposed to. I ordered one. XD If that still doesn't do much, I may look into some other kind of acid. I'm intrigued at the possibility using it to help prevent clogged pores. Retinol is interesting, but learning that you can't wax skin while using it is kinda annoying. I like to wax my eyebrows. (Retinol thins the skin, so you might rip off skin while waxing...Hell no. D: ) But then I wonder if I should be ripping wax off of my skin anyway. Tweezing might be better in the long run.

One of the things Craft mentions in Everyday Aspergers is how she doesn't feel like she's beautiful unless she looks AMAZING with no makeup or special hair styling etc. I doubt it has anything to do with AS, but I feel the same way. I think that's why my nails peeling bothers me so much. They should look perfectly amazing when I remove my polish! You know, instead of sucking it up, and babying my nails with strengthening polish like a normal person.

I'm honestly starting to think that I may not have a sensitivity to any ingredient in particular. My skin just sometimes reacts to things and sometimes it doesn't.

Last night and this morning I threw all kind of products on my skin, and nada. I'm fine. I'm going to use all that I've bought, and if something bothers my skin, I'll put it away for a week or so.
The whole possible AS thing throws MBTI into a new light, but I'm not at the point of actively pursuing that atm.
In my AS researching, I came across a post about heavy periods and AS and giving actually measurements for average periods....and mine is definitely abnormally heavy. Which then suggested the need for an iron supplement. Iron (and D) was purchased, and I've started taking it. We'll see if this helps my energy levels.
