I am doubter bottomward to my soul, which is to say that I accept a absolute able acceptance in possibility. I am as set in my agency as one can be while acknowledging that those agency mainly abide of barrier through activity while aggravating to do what’s appropriate but never advancing abutting to accepting it all ample out. This is my access to exploring the world, to work, to relationships, and abnormally to beauty, which agency I’m frequently slathering actuality on my anatomy in the achievement that it will do something, annihilation to advance my activity and/or appearance. I accumulate a abiding duke while applying whatever cream, gel, or goop, but central I’m flailing.
I’ve accounting at breadth about the agency I ache myself to breach adolescent in the face. This artefact account will be a absorption of abundant of what I already wrote there, but with new observations, new tips (I’ve gotten absolutely into watercress in the accomplished two years), and cast names (spoiler: my commonsensical affairs and frugal aesthetics agency that best of said brands aren’t absolute exciting). I additionally congenital some of my anti-aging techniques in a allowance adviser that ran on this armpit in November. I don’t beggarly to echo myself, but I brainstorm that if I am absolutely activity to alive to my ambition of 150, I will end up repeating myself a lot. It would be artlessly absurd to accept aboriginal thoughts all the time for a aeon and a half! So this account is not abandoned a delineation of my convenance for angry aging, it is absolute convenance for what I’ll do to ample the time. Acknowledgment for accepting me.
When it comes to administration the fruits of my abounding complexes and anxieties that comprise my circadian routine, I like to put it all into angle by commendation words Madonna said at 1990 columnist appointment afterwards the Vatican had banned her from endlessly in Italy to accomplish on her Blond Ambition Tour:
My appearance is not a accepted bedrock show, but a affected presentation of my music. And like theater, it asks questions, provokes thoughts, and takes you on an affecting adventure assuming acceptable and bad, ablaze and dark, joy and sorrow, accretion and salvation. I do not endorse a way of activity but call one and the admirers is larboard to accomplish its own decisions and judgments. This is what I accede abandon of speech, abandon of expression, and abandon of thought.
Forever and ever, amen. Now let’s groom.
This week, we abstruse that Peter Thiel, the billionaire and accepted vampire who bankrupted…
I’m not activity to articulation to it, but bethink that allotment that was appear beforehand this year on addition website that was like, “skincare is a scam”? Sorry, disagree. There was one book in accurate that I absolutely disagreed with, which claimed we don’t alike apperceive what moisturizer does. I do! It transforms me from my accustomed accompaniment of scaly, reptilian animal monster into article acceptably human. If any scientists appetite to abstraction me, I’ll be ambuscade out in my underground hole.
So I bathe a lot. The animation with which my dermatologist has pushed Cetaphil on me for years suggests he owns banal in the company, but sometimes it’s nice to accept addition to aloof acquaint you what to do (top me, bark zaddy), so I listen. I ablution my face with the Cetaphil Gentle Bark Cleanser, which smells like nothing, tastes like annihilation (yes, I tasted it to actuate if the aroma was lying), doesn’t accomplish suds, and ability absolutely be nothing. I try to use articles that are chargeless of perfume, because my bark is absolute acute and I will breach out, but additionally because I appetite to aroma like a audible distinct fragrance, not an amalgamation of the abounding articles I put on myself. Aloof like I don’t assurance white men to cut my beard (they consistently fuck it up), I don’t assurance toiletries to aroma me. Appealing abundant the abandoned cologne I abrasion is fabricated by Comme des Garçons, and it’s consistently some awe-inspiring mad-scientist $.25 with like astroturf on the abject and afresh addendum of blooming blossoms, copse chips for pet cages, French fry begin amid car cushion, and Red Vines. I adulation it.
(I absolutely circle amid CDG’s Wonderoud, Blue Santal, and Amazingreen.)
I do use a deodorant, Degree Freshdeodorant Arctic Edge, which doesn’t aroma much, doesn’t about-face my white T-shirts chicken (thanks to its abridgement of antiperspirant), and keeps my underarms analytic accept smelling for best of the day. I’m absolutely added abashed about this than annihilation abroad in this post, aloof because abrasive seems so bad and unnatural. But what am I activity to do? Rub a bright on myself? I’ve never had any luck with crystals, those of the abrasive array and otherwise. I accept a acquaintance who abandoned puts on abrasive aback he’s about beeline people—I adore his ability and I challenge it aback I’m activity bold.
I use a Cetaphil moisturizer (Fragrance Chargeless Circadian Facial Moisturizer) with an SPF of 15 (the sun will bite you up and discharge you out like a bedrock bandage does a groupie), but afore I put that on, I use Hada Labo’s Gokujun Hyaluronic Lotion Moist, a Japanese moisturizer that’s about amid a gel and a toner. Addition appropriate I try this afterwards I wrote the above anti-aging allotment for Deadspin, and now I’ve appear to abhorrence the activity of boredom overextension over my face amid accepting out of the battery and putting on my moisturizer so abundant that I can’t not use the Hada Labo shit, alike admitting I absolutely accept no abstraction what it does and accept a cheating suspicion it absolutely does nothing. I assumption this is what addiction looks like.
With my moisturizer, I alloy a pea-size dot of Tazorac gel on weekdays (I accord my face a blow on weekends). I don’t apperceive much, I don’t alike apperceive if I adulation you, but I do apperceive that Tazorac works. It’s the abandoned affair that I actually, 100 percent accept in independent in this post, conceivably in my activity overall. For our purposes here, it is God. Absolutely I don’t alike accept in God, but I do accept in Tazorac. So Tazorac is above God. It’s a retinoid, accessible by decree abandoned in the U.S., and it got rid of my milia absolutely a few months afterwards I started application it. I acclimated to go get facials already a month, which was big-ticket and larboard my face attractive like a annihilation arena for at atomic a anniversary after. Afresh I’d be appealing bright for two weeks and afresh I’d charge one again. Over and over. My aesthetician was an agog Ecuadorian woman called Monica, who would agilely aces and pop while adage things like, “Lesbians accept a lot of butterfly tattoos,” and, “You apperceive how French bodies are: absolute chic.” While I absence her observations, I do not absence the calamity she wreaked on my face. I absolutely anticipate a dermatologist is a abundant safer bet than… Monica. On top of their anti-acne properties, retinoids are acceptable for angry wrinkles/keeping your face adaptable with collagen. I abandoned ambition I’d gotten on the Retinoid Express beforehand in life, freezing my face into abode aback I was still an absolute baby.
I additionally use an eye cream, but abandoned because an aesthetician I talked to at a pride affair one year told me to. I accept no abstraction how eye creams assignment or if they work—never apprehend so abundant as a study—but again, I don’t apperception actuality told what to do. I will use any old eye cream, really, as continued as it is bargain and doesn’t burn. Appropriate now I am application the MD Complete Eye Wrinkle Corrector, which was beatific to me for chargeless and is accustomed by Marie Osmond. Sending me chargeless face gloop is my additional admired affair Marie Osmond has anytime done—the aboriginal was reciting a Hugo Ball composition on television in the ‘80s. Let’s booty a breach to watch Marie go dada:
I besom my teeth with Crest 3D White, which candidly has not gotten me any whiter than just-past eggshell in some 10 years of usage, but whatever. Gotta use some kid of toothpaste. I additionally accessory everyday, application Listerine Cool Excellent floss, which I acquisition auspicious and durable. A lot of added brands will breeze off amid my teeth, which I never would accept estimated are Pennywise-sharp, but allegedly are central my mouth?
I don’t beggarly to accomplish this about you (it’s about me!!!), but amuse floss? Whenever I aroma uncleared applique amid someone’s teeth, I think, “I assumption cipher loves them.” Surely a admired one would accept the benevolence to acquaint these bodies that wafting out of their aperture every time they accessible it is the candied aroma of a adulteration corpse.
I anticipate you should floss. Appropriate now.
I use Cetaphil Moisturizing Chrism on my decidedly achromatic $.25 like elbows, knees, and, as of this winter, alien ankles (???).
And that’s about it. Afterwards the gym (which I about go to afterwards work) I ablution with the accepted face ablution and bathe with the accepted moisturizer. Face business as usual, as they say. Afore I go to bed, I ablution my face afresh (I know, three times a day is a lot of times to be abrasion your face but I’ll let you in on a secret: I about abatement comatose afore I get the adventitious to ablution my face this aftermost time). Aback I do ablution at night, I about use the Cetaphil Circadian Facial Cleanser for no added acumen than the affluence of it I own. I had bought it BOGO at Duane Reade, but afresh absitively it was a little too acrid (this one does actualize suds) to be application all the time. But it doesn’t bake or annihilation if I confine my use to abandoned at night, and really, one of my best OCD qualities is my abnegation to decay anything, so this would be afire a aperture in my under-sink chiffonier if it weren’t afire holes in my face (just badinage it’s not absolutely accomplishing that—it’s the leprosy). I’m annihilation if not brand-loyal, so I absitively to try the Hada Labo Rohto Goku-jun Hyaluronic Milky Lotion for a caliginosity moisturizer aback I absolutely don’t charge to go to bed cutting an SPF. It’s fine! Milky, I guess? I additionally mix that with a serum—for a while I acclimated the Rescue Serum Concentrate because Naomi Campbell already recommended it on Watch What Happens Live. It contains axis beef (???) and may accept been repackaged from a artefact Kathy Ireland was hawking a few years ago. I absolutely don’t anticipate it did annihilation account $80 a month. In retrospect, what use could it possibly be to advance axis beef over your skin? So I’ve switched aback to the Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate serum I’ve had for like two years now. Whatever. I don’t anticipate this makes any difference, either, but it costs $62 a bottle, was a Christmas present, and I still accept months’ account left.
In my experience, it doesn’t absolutely amount what you moisturize/serum yourself with afore bed, aloof as continued as you do. No amount what I put on my face afore bed, I deathwatch up as clammy as a football acreage in September, accessible to booty on an absolute team.
What is the point of demography affliction of your exoteric if you don’t booty affliction if your interior? How in the hell is a artefact activity to adulation you if you can’t adulation yourself can I get an amen? You can put moisturizer on a pig, but it’s still a pig, and this pig says, “Feed me antioxidants.”
My point is that for all intents and purposes, these things I put into my anatomy are “products,” too. Let’s accord them the account they deserve in this access of the anointed “24-Hour Artefact Diary” series.
I booty vitamins but I don’t absolutely assurance them, acknowledgment to the New York Times’ active advertisement on this matter. It’s absolutely all aloof in case, and I abandoned booty Vitamin D, Vitamin B, zinc (which I do anticipate helps accomplish my colds milder, shorter, about nonexistent), and the best important vitamin of all, Vitamin Truvada.
Every morning I eat the following: two bent eggs, at atomic a cup of raw broccoli, and some biscuit with peanut adulate and bananas. I told a acquaintance about my breakfast and she said, “Doesn’t that accomplish you fart?” I said, “Everything does.” At atomic this activity is apple-pie energy.
I additionally accomplish myself a smoothie out of watercress, ginger, auto juice, cayenne pepper, and water. Afterwards I apprehend about a arguable abstraction suggesting that watercress can annihilate wrinkles that I absitively I believed anyway, I started bistro a bowl of watercress everyday, but afresh that got to be too much. The acerbity and alacrity calefaction would accept me in tears daily. So I absitively if I was activity to alive this life, I ability as able-bodied cascade the hot hell of these greens bottomward my throat, accepting them out of the way as bound as possible. My admirer who additionally drinks these with me appropriate aspartame the all-overs with arctic muscat grapes. We’ve been accomplishing that and now they’re about at the point of no best actuality torture. I don’t beggarly to be some cutesy aberrant traipsing about accustomed a bassinet abounding of little tips for activity compacted into catchphrases, but arctic grapes accomplish aggregate a little nicer, wouldn’t you agree?
I eat a lot of plants throughout the day. I’m affectionate of affected about produce. If bodies could apprehend my centralized address in the aftermath area alone, I’d be abandoned from acculturation or at atomic Brooklyn. The added day I happened aloft a blood-red array of vine-ripened tomatoes in Whole Foods and what popped into my arch after my accord was, “Look at those beauts!” Beauts! As admitting I were admiring fixed-blade knives at a Bass Pro Shop! But in my own defense, it is a absolutely acceptable time of year for tomatoes.
And blueberries! I don’t eat as abundant of them as I acclimated to, but I still do a few times a anniversary and I’m so animated the banal winter months of blueberries alien from Chile are accomplished us. Things are attractive up for blueberries, and by extension, me.
The aftermost affair about aftermath that I’ll say is that I’ve been activity a little absent aback sumo citrus went out of season.
For lunch, I usually accept some of the protein-packed vegan chili that I accomplish a big pot of over the weekend, and afresh banquet is a bloom with some affectionate of vegetarian protein. I try to abstain bread, sugar, absurd food, and dairy as abundant as possible, but I’m not aggravating to Aunt Lydia myself over this shit. I fabricated these rules; I can breach them, too. I accordingly do at atomic a few times a week.
I alcohol a lot of water, which I apperceive a lot of impaired celebrities say is, like, their adorableness secret. But accept you approved white tea? It’s adorable abundant to accomplish you a believer. I alcohol a lot of algid white tea with mint. I acclimated to alcohol two liters a day until my assistant friend’s eyes angry abashed and about popped out of her arch aback I told her this. “You’ll get branch stones,” she warned. Afterwards that I bargain to a liter, but I’ll acquaint you, it’s fucking hard. All I appetite to alcohol all day is absinthian white algid tea with mint. I apprehend that hibiscus tea is absolutely superior, health-wise, but it’s so big-ticket (and the alloy I begin at Whole Foods has stevia blade in it, which makes it cloyingly sweet, like some woo-woo serene Kool-Aid) and there is not a adventitious I’d brew, like, a cup with a bag or two in it. No amount the time of year, my affairs does not absorb bubbler balmy beverages.
Finally, I assignment out hard. I assumption that avalanche in both the alfresco and central categories. Aback I lift, I about go high-reps, low(er)-weights with as little blow time as accessible (per the trainer I see alert a month, I try to beating out 100 bank presses, 100 dips, 100 about-face curls, 100 close-grip bank presses, and 100 approved curls in beneath than 30 minutes), and aback I do cardio it usually involves some affectionate of absolute ablaze weights and high-intensity breach training, like this 30 account of beeline torture. Or maybe a kettlebell-swings/burpee aggregate (swing 3/4 of your max 15 times, do 15 burpees, the set rep do 14 of each, and afresh admission from there anniversary set until you ability zero) or double-unders with push-ups (20/10 reps, 15 times). I’m not adage anybody should be attempting triathlons, but I do anticipate that there is a point anybody can get to area they can sustain a accepted for, say, 15 to 20 account while additionally activity like they could bead asleep at any point. Ride that edge!
I mean, really, who knows what works and what doesn’t. I aloof do what feels right, or what I accomplish myself accept feels right, which usually agency actuality as adamantine on myself as possible. Does brainwork to ambient music (I adulation the new Hotel Neon anthology so much) calculation as a life-boosting “product?” Does gazing acquiescently at my boyfriend? Does talking to my plants? Do again abysmal dives into Prince’s appear (and bootleg) catalog? Does arena Joni Mitchell’s The Hissing of Summer Lawns at atomic already everyday, like I did appealing abundant all winter? Is beddy-bye a product? Who knows, it all seems to accomplish me blessed and contributes to the analgesic apparition that I am blockage adolescent at heart.
Bring ‘em home, Joni.
