As you might have noticed, there was no post today. I’ve been battling what has felt like a stomach bug on and off for about two weeks now and this weekend I was super exhausted and didn’t have the energy to write. I’m sorry about that. 🙁
I will also be out of town for the better part of next week on half work, half vacation. I will try to put some content in the pipeline for you guys during that time, but it may only be one or two posts.
Additionally, I will be picking winners for the Reader’s Survey by the end of the month. I’ve gotten great feedback from you all and I really appreciate you taking the time.
I’ve also swapped to written content for my Patreon, as you may have already noticed. It is not replacing my usual content or anything, so don’t fret, nor do I have plans to put existing content features behind a paywall. Instead, I will be trying to write very deep-dive content for my Patreon that is a companion or supplement to the content you see here. Last week, I started with the anatomy and physiology of the skin, specifically the two major glands of the skin (three, if you want to count the two types of sweat glands) as well as how each layer of the skin breaks down.
I’ve also updated my post on Kiku High Moist Skin Lotion with some additional information about licorice root extract, which I missed the first time, as well as some studies on sake that a wonderful Redditor on /r/AsianBeauty gave me. I’ll always do my best to keep old content updated and relevant as I learn new things, and to let you guys know what has changed.
Thank you for hanging around! I hope you have fun plans for the Fourth if you’re in the US. If you aren’t, I hope you have a beautiful week without too many bumps in the road.
