Randy I know you research what you use very thoroughly. Would you mind posting your regime? I think you use CPs and RA and LAA ... and which retinol serum and which NAG/idebenone serum? Thx in advance.
Like most folks that are trying to juggle a lot of things, I do not have a fixed schedule, but I can share my regime in a general sense.Morning
No cleanser, just water, to wash my face.
L-aa serum (15%) to my entire face every other day.
On the alternate day - I only apply the L-aa to my lower face and CPs (Super COP 2x) to my forehead ("problem area" for me), followed by Emu oil to enhance absorption. The folks at Skin Biology told me in a correspondence that they no longer warn vs. concomitant use of these two products - but I am an old dog and do it the old way - and so do not use them on the same areas together.
About 45 minutes later - I layer a few products, just waiting for them to absorb adequately -
DIY Glucoamine/B3/Idebenone (or the Kinetin version) serum to my entire face.
DIY ALA/Pepha-tight/Trylagen serum to my entire face.
Sunscreen - if I am going out. Most days - no.Late afternoon
- (after exercising/showering)
Kassy's MSM/Niacinamide face cream to my face and neck, followed by a nourishing oil (usually argan or rosehip seed).Night
OCM to wash my face.
Every night - Super COP 2x to my forehead. Every other night - CP serum to the rest of my face. Followed by Emu oil to enhance absorption. 1-2x per week I use my 0.5mm derma roller to roll in the CP's before applying the Emu oil.
RA 0.1% (buffered as needed with Aloe Vera Gel) or Retinyl Palmitate 5% (in argan oil). RA - maybe 2-3 times a week, it varies.
Every night - DIY Glucosamine/B3/Idebenone (or the Kinetin version) serum.
I use my BQ weekly - using an AHA, green tea, PCA combo serum that Kassy posted somewhere on this site.
I think that's about it (?)
