Acne Prone Skin Tips

Hi there! ^_^ I thought I should blog about my problematic skin!

That's right, exactly what the title says. ACNE. T.T I'm sure this is a extremely serious problem for girls. D;

First, let me show you my before and after photo ya. 100% NOT EDITED.

Yeah, you get what I mean?

The before photo was taken like August 2010. The after photo, I took it recently.

What I wanna say is, I suffer a lot during this period of time! I got no idea why and where these acnes come from. T.T I tried all sorts of stuff trying to treat my face. FIRST, GOING FOR FACIAL TREATMENT DOESN'T HELP AT ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL. Maybe a little, but to be honest, it's a waste of money. I jump from one acne medication to another, and seriously none helped. I was soooo sooo sooo desperate and frustrated.

And people said my face look like.


But since sometime last year, my skin starts to get better. I'm somewhat relieved. ^_^ Though now I still have some scars left.

Let me share with you guys some tips!

1. I think drinking plenty of water is suppppppeeeeerrr important!

2. Try to avoid touching your face unnecessarily and not to squeeze your pimples because it makes the problem worst.

3. Spamming facial products doesn't help.

4.  Shampoo your hair regularly! And try to keep your hair out of your face especially when you're at home or exercising.

5. Be sure to wash your face every day and night! 

6. I started trying to avoid putting on makeup for quite sometime.

And for some products I actually tried, and it somehow work quite well, here it is~

Origins Dr. Andrew Weil Mega-Mushroom series. Oh god, this is the best cleanser for sensitive skin! But it doesn't smell very nice... It smells like herbs. Acne causes redness to my face. And this cleanser really reduce the redness aloooot. It's very mild, light and effective. Really good product ^_^ 

OXY 10 Benzoyl Peroxide. I think this is a very effective pimple medication. It dries up your pimple overnight! Plus, it's inexpensive! Super cheap cheap cheap. 

These three are my all time favouite masks. All from My Beauty Diary. Cooling mask, Apple Polyphenol mask and Earl Grey Tea & Macaron mask. 

Cooling mask - Singapore is a super hot country and we are always exposed to sun, thus this cooling masks helps to repair and hydrate my skin. It's a super refreshing and soothing mask. You should try!

Apple Polyphenol mask - I think this is one of the best mask I ever used! It helps to tighten pores and also regulates sebum secretion. Each time I used, I see instant results! Plus it smells real goood~ 

Earl Grey & Macarons - This mask is mainly to clarify, whiten and brighten your face. Good for scars! Instant results!

You guys should try them! ^_^ That's about it! I took me some courage to actually post up my ugly acne face photo @_@. I hope it helps anyone of you out there who have acne problem like me.  ><
Do keep this in mind that: KEEPING YOURSELF CLEAN IS THE MAIN KEY! But it's not like I'm dirty, but trust me, it helps.

And my contact lens giveaway closed! I'm sorrrry, I am suppose to post the results today! But I got something on and couldn't sort out the names yet! Give me one more day! ^_^

  16. thank you for the tips! i hope they work on me too and help get rid of my stubborn acne! >:O

  17. I think my skin was like 80% of yours many years back. Then I started watching my diet (eliminated PEANUTS which were causing pimples) and started using suitable cleanser (my previous one was super drying, making my skin dehydrated, oily and dying) and moisturizer. I guess discipline was the key for me.. Took me a while to remind myself to wash my face twice a day & stay off peanut butter, which I loved.

  18. I did not expect you to previously have problem skin. Your skin always looks so amazing! I definitely hate acne, suffered from it from so long. I'm still working on getting great skin so I highly reconfirm everything you've written!
