My Evening Anti-Aging Skincare Routine - August 2018

My Evening Anti-Aging Skincare Routine - August 2018


Recently, I shared my updated morning skincare routine, and today, I'm sharing my updated evening anti-aging skincare routine.

If you haven't read my updated morning routine yet, let me tell you a little about my recent skincare issues. (If you have already read that post, you can just skip to below the first photo.) In March 2018, my dermatologist gave me a diagnosis of rosacea, subtype 2. (If you want to read more about that, check out my post: Five Important Things I've Learned About Rosacea or All About My Skin.) That meant I had to stop my skincare routine except for a prescription cleanser, First Aid Beauty Anti-Redness Serum, and CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion - until the rosacea was controlled. I suffered some anxiety when I realized I wasn't going to be able to use my anti-aging products - being most upset about losing all of the progress I had made with tretinoin.

1) I've always been a two-step gal, so if I have makeup on in the evening, I remove that before I cleanse my face. If I'm wearing a full face of makeup, I use Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water for waterproof makeup (the blue cap) and an exfoliating cotton pad to remove it. If I only have on tinted moisturizer, I will use a makeup removing towelette like Garnier SkinActive Micellar Remover Wipes (pink) or Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes.

2) Cleansing is next, and I switch up my cleansers in the evening. Every third night I use the prescription sulfacetamide face wash prescribed by my dermatologist. That's the "schedule" that allows it to work without drying out my skin too much. On the other nights, I have three cleansers I choose from: Pure & Pretty Clarifying Cleanser, Acure Sensitive Facial Cleanser (now called Seriously Soothing Cleansing Cream), or the La Roche Posay Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Cleanser. I apply with a konjac sponge, and remove with a soft washcloth and warm water.

3) While my skin is still slightly damp, I spritz Lexli Tone & Balance Aloe Vera Face Toner over my face, neck, and décolleté. This is a new product for me, and I like it a lot. I feel like it has helped keep the rosacea calm, and it doesn't dry out my skin. (There will be a review coming soon!)

4) Next I apply the Argireline 10% Solution from The Ordinary. As in the morning, I don't really measure this, I just drop some on my fingertip and apply to my forehead, the lines between my eyes (near the bridge of my nose), crow's feet, and nasolabial folds.

4a) Every third night, I apply tretinoin to my face, neck, and décolleté. I'm moving very slowly with this, keeping an eye out for any irritation/rosacea flare-ups. After about 6-8 weeks at this schedule (which is soon), I will increase to every second night.

5) After about 30 minutes, I apply Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Serum from The Ordinary. I use about 5-6 drops, applied with damp hands to my face, neck, and décolleté.

6) Now I apply Lexli A-Firm-Ative Anti-Aging Peptide Serum. I place two pumps of serum into damp palms and apply to my face, neck, and décolleté. Other options would be The Ordinary's plain Buffet Serum or their Matrixyl 10% + HA.

I usually start my evening skincare routine fairly early in the evening - several hours before I go to bed. I take advantage of this and apply more than one moisturizer.

7) The first moisturizer I apply is the Pretty Pearlfection Cream. I use a pea-sized amount with damp hands to my face, neck, and décolleté. I've been using this product for many years, and not only does it moisturize, but it also keeps breakouts at bay. When I do get a breakout, it definitely shortens the healing time.

8) Next I spot treat any red areas with First Aid Beauty Anti-Redness Serum. This contains colloidal sulfur, which is great for rosacea. If you don't have rosacea or other redness, you wouldn't need this product.

9) After an hour or so, I apply CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion. I use about two pumps and apply to my face, neck, and décolleté. This is another long-time product for me. I love that it is lightweight, but yet provides a good amount of hydration.

10) Just as in the morning, I apply Lexli Revital-Eyes Rejuvenating Cream under my eyes at night. I don't think it's always necessary to have a special product for the undereye area, but I seem to need a little extra "something" for moisture. If I don't use the Rejuvenating Cream, I apply watermelon or rosehip seed oil.

11) Right before I go to bed I apply the last moisturizer - Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream (I prefer the fragrance-free). I can definitely still feel this on my skin in the morning, so it's great at hydration as well as plumping fine lines.

12) And let's not forget the lips! I use two products on my lips to help with plumping as well as keeping them hydrated. The first is GrandeLIPS Hydrating Lip Plumper (in clear). I usually apply that one near the beginning of my skincare routine to give it a chance to absorb. Then right before I go to bed, I apply Clinique Pep-Start Pout Restoring Night Mask. It's so hydrating it lasts until morning!

The Lexli products I mentioned are new to my routine, and they are formulated with a base of pharmaceutical-grade aloe vera for it's anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and healing properties as well as it's ability to penetrate the skin. So they're great for someone with sensitive skin or rosacea. I'll be doing a review soon!

Hyaluronic Acid: Is it part of your skincare routine?

Hyaluronic Acid: Is it part of your skincare routine?


There are many actives in my anti-aging routine, but sometimes, I have the need to just use a serum that will provide hydration - like when I have a rosacea flare, if my skin is particularly sensitive, or even if I just want a boost of moisture.

One product that is perfect for this is the Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 from The Ordinary.

You guys know that I'm a big fan of The Ordinary's products because they provide quality ingredients at an affordable price. Many of their products that I use contain hyaluronic acid in addition to other good things for my skin. Their Hyaluronic Acid + B5 product is no different.

Most hyaluronic acid (HA) used in skincare products is a high-molecular weight HA that is too large to actually penetrate the skin. It works by sitting on the surface of the skin and drawing moisture from within the skin to make the surface feel hydrated. The Ordinary's product uses low-, medium-, and high-molecular weight HA and a HA crosspolymer, so it offers hydration at multiple levels. Vitamin B5 in the serum also increases surface hydration.

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Sodium Hyaluronate, Pentylene Glycol, Propanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, Panthenol, Ahnfeltia Concinna Extract, Glycerin, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Citric Acid, Isoceteth-20, Ethoxydiglycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hexylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol.

The HA serum comes packaged in a frosted clear glass one ounce bottle with a dropper cap. The serum itself is clear, and of a serum-like consistency. It's easy to apply, and absorbs quickly, leaving skin feeling slightly tacky.

When I apply the Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5, I use about 5 drops, applied with damp hands to a damp face. I don't typically use it on a daily basis, and when I do use it, it's only with one or two other products at night, so I've never had an issue with pilling.  I used to use it on the nights I did derma-rolling, but I don't derma-roll since my rosacea diagnosis. The only reason I don't use it on a regular basis is that I use other products that contain HA.

A photo of the side of the box with instructions for using Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 from The Ordinary


I think it's a fabulous product that would be especially good for someone who wants either minimal actives added to their routine or wants to increase the amount of HA for their skin. It is fragrance-free, alcohol-free, oil-free, silicone-free, nut-free, vegan, and cruelty-free.

My Morning Anti-aging Skincare Routine - August 2018

My Morning Anti-aging Skincare Routine - August 2018


It's been about eight months since I've updated my anti-aging skincare routine, and since I've made a few changes, I thought I should do an update here.

There will be two posts - this one, which covers my morning anti-aging routine, and a second one which will cover my evening anti-aging routine. Subscribers/members will have access to a printable version of both routines (including suggestions for alternate products) in the members-only section of the blog. If you're not a member and would like to be, you can sign up here.

Let's start with a brief update on my skin. In March 2018, I was diagnosed with rosacea, subtype 2. (If you want to read more about that, check out my post: Five Important Things I've Learned About Rosacea or All About My Skin.) That brought my skincare routine to a screeching halt as I was told to stop everything except the prescription cleanser, the First Aid Beauty Anti-Redness Serum, and the CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion - at least until the rosacea calmed down. I'm going to be honest. I had a mini freak-out when I realized I wasn't going to be able to use my anti-aging products for an undetermined length of time! I think I was most upset about losing all of the progress I had made with tretinoin.

Fast forward to now, and I've finally been able to get my anti-aging skincare routine back on track over the past couple of months. This is my current routine for mornings:

A bottle of La Roche Posay Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Cleanser sitting on a counter with a konjac sponge and washcloth nearby.
La Roche Posay Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Cleanser

1) The first thing I do in the morning is cleanse my face, neck, and décolleté with La Roche Posay Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Cleanser. I splash my face with warm water, then use my hands to apply the cleanser. I leave it on for a couple of minutes, then gently remove it with a soft washcloth and warm water. I like this cleanser a lot. It's gentle and leaves my face feeling soft and hydrated.

2) While my skin is still slightly damp, I spritz Lexli Tone & Balance Aloe Vera Face Toner over my face, neck, and décolleté. This is a new product for me (replacing the Thayer's Witch Hazel), and I feel like it has helped in keeping the rosacea calm. A review will be coming soon.

3) When the toner is almost absorbed (but my face is still slightly damp) I apply Timeless Vitamin C+E+Ferulic Acid Serum. I place about 10 drops in the palm of my dampened hand, lightly rub my hands together to distribute the serum, then gently apply to my face, neck, and décolleté. Then I rub the remainder on the backs of my hands.

4) I move directly into the next product - the Argireline 10% Solution from The Ordinary. I don't really measure this, I just drop some on my fingertip and apply to my forehead, the lines between my eyes (near the bridge of my nose), crow's feet, and nasolabial folds - any place where there are lines caused by repetitive movement.

 A bottle of The Ordinary's "Buffet" + Copper Peptides 1% sitting on a wooden table with the product box in the background
The Ordinary's "Buffet" + Copper Peptides 1%

5) Once the Argireline is mostly absorbed, I start with the slightly heavier serums. The Ordinary's Buffet Serum + Copper Peptides 1% is my newest serum and I will do a review soon. I use about 5-6 drops, applied with damp hands to my face, neck, and décolleté. I have also used their original Buffet Serum as well as their Matrixyl 10% + HA and I like both products. Another option is Lexli A-Firm-Ative Anti-Aging Peptide Serum.

6) Next up - Timeless CoEnzyme Q10 Serum. I stopped this serum for awhile, but I missed it. It definitely makes my skin feel and look better. I feel like it provides a lot of moisture/hydration. I use about 5-6 drops, applied with damp hands to my face, neck, and décolleté. When I was using the original Buffet Serum or the Matrixyl 10% + HA, I would just mix the CoQ10 serum with the other serum before applying. I don't do that with the Buffet Serum that contains copper peptides because I'm not sure if the copper should be mixed with the CoQ10.

7) After the CoQ10 has absorbed, I apply the Pretty Pearlfection Cream moisturizer - which is one of the products I sell at I Feel Pretty Products. I have used it for many years, and it works so well at keeping breakouts at a minimum, sometimes healing them overnight. I use a pea-sized amount applied with damp hands to my face, neck, and décolleté.

8) Now I spot treat any red (rosacea) areas with First Aid Beauty Anti-Redness Serum. It contains colloidal sulfur, which is great for rosacea. If I have any other breakouts, I will also apply to them. Obviously, if you don't have rosacea or other redness, you can skip this step.

9) Even though I don't really believe that an "eye" product is necessary, I do like to apply something to my undereye area, even if it's just an oil. I avoid putting tretinoin near my undereye area, but it still seems to creep up there and cause some extra dryness. Right now, I'm using Lexli Revital-Eyes Rejuvenating Cream (review soon). If I don't use that, I will use  few drops of watermelon or rosehip seed oil.

10) And let's not forget the lips! I apply GrandeLIPS Hydrating Lip Plumper (in clear) to plump and hydrate my lips. I leave it on until I'm finished applying makeup, then if there is any that hasn't completely absorbed, I will wipe it off before applying lipstick.

11) And you know what the last step is going to be, right? Sunscreen. For my face, I like Paula's Choice RESIST Super-Light Wrinkle Defense SPF 30. Not only is it lightweight and doesn't get greasy, it also contains several antioxidants like resveratrol. I also like Australian Gold Botanical Tinted Face Sunscreen SPF 50 and Neutrogena Ultra-Sheer Dry-Touch SPF 70, 85+, or 100+.

Whew! That seems like a lot, I know. But you know how it it - once it's a habit, it doesn't take long to apply everything. If you ever have any questions about my routine, please feel free to email me or contact me on social media!

Adventures of Gus and Kim: Best Pizza in Newport, Kentucky!

Adventures of Gus and Kim: Best Pizza in Newport, Kentucky!


Did you see my recent post about the Newport Italian Festival - or see my Snapchat or Insta-stories? If so, then you heard/saw me raving about the Best. Cannoli. Ever. And it came from the Newport Pizza Company!

I'll be honest - I had never heard of the Newport Pizza Company (NPC) until I saw their booth at this year's Italian Festival - and I've lived in Northern Kentucky since 2007. They opened in 2009, and in 2010, they were featured in the article "Amazing Pizza from Across the U.S." on delish.com.

When I mentioned NPC to Gus and Buddy, they both said they knew of it and heard it was really good. Who keeps that kind of information from their wife/mama?? Naturally, I told Gus we had to go there for dinner. As soon as possible.

First things first. If you've ever been to Newport, then you know that parking is at a premium. Most places don't have their own parking, so you're left to try to find a spot on the street or in one of  the pay-to-park lots. Good news! NPC has a dedicated parking lot!

It sits on the corner of Monmouth and E. 6th Street and the parking lot curves around the side and back of the building.

outside Newport Pizza Company - brick building with large windows,a sign above with the name, and wrought iron tables and chairs outside

The interior isn't very large, but it's cozy. I loved the decor - it just looks like one of the pizza places I used to frequent as a teen. Oh, the memories!

inside Newport Pizza Company - cream upper walls, dark red lower walls, booths and tables and chairs, TV on the wall

They do have a bar, but the local craft beer we ordered was in a bottle. I didn't notice whether they had other beer on tap or not.

Gus ordered a sausage pizza with extra cheese, and declared it to be delicious...

I ordered the East Row sandwich - capicola, salami, and pepperoni, topped with three cheeses, lettuce, tomato - served hot with a pickle on the side. Yummy!

Soooo good, guys!

But the best part, of course, was the cannoli!! Seriously the best cannoli I've ever had. In. My. Life. I want one now just thinking about it.

cannoli with chocolate chips sprinkled with powder sugar and drizzled with chocolate sauce on a white plate

Prices are reasonable, too. 12" sausage and extra cheese pizza, East Row sandwich, two bottles of craft beer, and a cannoli = $30 plus tip.

Bonus: Just around the corner on York Street is Wooden Cask Brewery! You know we stopped, and there will be a review very soon!

Adventures of Gus and Kim: Newport Italian Festival - Newport, Kentucky

Adventures of Gus and Kim: Newport Italian Festival - Newport, Kentucky


Do you go to local festivals? We love festivals - at home and when we travel. One of our favorites is the annual Festa Italiana in Newport, Kentucky. In case you couldn't tell from photos, Gus is Italian. As in 100% Italian with all of his grandparents born in Italy. I think his favorite foods in the world are pizza, pasta, and bread. In that order.

Believe it or not, we actually attended the very first one back in 1991, when Lulu was just a couple of months old, and Buddy was about 17 months old. It was in a different location back then and just had a few booths. This year was the 27th annual festival, and I believe they averaged over 100,000 visitors!

The festival is held the second weekend in June, beginning at 5pm on Thursday and ending at 9pm on Sunday. It's located on Riverboat Row between the Purple People and Taylor-Southgate Bridges, which is basically just below Newport on the Levee. As a matter of fact, if you park at the Levee and walk down the steps by the Newport Aquarium, you'll be right in the center of the festival.

Mangia! Mangia! There is always delicious food. Some of the vendors change from year to year, but you can count on Pompilio's (it's the restaurant in Rainman where the toothpicks get scattered on the floor) and LaRosa's. This year, they had those two as well as Brio's, Newport Pizza Co., and a few other places.

Gus was in meatball heaven. He had meatballs from two different restaurants. He does love meatballs.

I don't usually eat pasta, but I make an exception during the Festa Italiana. I had Gnocchi Bolognese from I wish I knew where. For the life of me, I cannot remember the name on the booth. I don't think it was a restaurant that I know. I can picture exactly where the booth was in the lineup, and I know they had a white banner, but the name...it's gone. I've even tried Googling the food to see if it would pop up with a local restaurant, but so far no luck.

I also had rigatoni with a bolognese sauce from Pompilio's. It was the oddest bolognese sauce I've ever had, but it was good!

Buddy had veal ravioli with portobello mushrooms. Also from the place none of us can remember. He said it was delicious, so I really need to figure out this place!

Buddy and I were happy to see that one of our favorite local breweries - Braxton Brewing - had a booth. And they had one of our favorite summer Berliners (passionfruit) on tap: Summertrip.

For those who don't want beer, there are plenty of other beverages available. Soft drinks, iced tea, lemonade...and an entire tent devoted to wine and wine tastings.

My favorite part is, of course, dessert. Cannoli!! I usually get the cannoli from the Sons of Italy booth (it's not a restaurant, it's a group of people with Italian roots) because I figure a lovely nonna (grandma) made them. But this year, Newport Pizza Co. also had cannoli. It was my duty to sample both to see which was best. And you know what? Newport Pizza Co. won! As a matter of fact, I liked it so much that Gus and I went there for dinner the other night. Mostly so I could get another cannoli!!

For those who don't like cannoli (gasp!), there are many other options like funnel cakes, tiramisu, and Buddy had some blue raspberry gelato which he said was delicious.

We sat under the tents, enjoyed the view of the Ohio river (even though it's brown) and downtown Cincinnati, as we listened to authentic Italian music - live.

There are also carnival rides on the opposite end of the festival - separated from the food booths by the huge tents housing the Family Photo Booth, full of photos of generations of Italian families that settled in Newport many years ago.

Parking: As I mentioned above, you can park in the Levee parking garage (I think it's $3 or $5). There is also parking on Riverboat Row. We got there around 12:30 on Saturday and there was a ton of parking available on Riverboat Row. The cost was $5 and we were about 50 feet from where the carnival rides started.
