Lo and behold, the HIGHLY anticipated blog post that took me forever to write. You would think I am used to showing my bare (horrifying) skin even after being on social media for a good year or two. Turns out, immortalising the scary acne-filled predicament of my skin is probably one of the toughest decision I have ever done. Y'all know, acne is literally the bane of my existence and I am constantly so embarrassed by the state of my skin that I would NEVER leave the house without concealing my blemishes. Someone even referred to my face as a Magnum. If you do not understand, here's why:
Yup, tell me about it. Coincidentally, this is my favourite Magnum flavour too so props to a good reminder on how sad my skin was every time I take a bite out of this delicious goodness! Acne definitely packed a punch against my self-confidence. I did EVERYTHING to solve my acne problem and today, I will be sharing with you what works, and the other methods you should never waste your time on. Even till now, I still catch myself being overly critical about my physical appearance. Hence, writing this post not only serves as a reminder to myself, but to let you guys know that you should take a breather & be kinder to yourself! ♥
Before I begin, I just want to highlight that acne is YOUR BODY telling you that it has enough. Enough of all the stress you put it through, enough of all the junk you ingest & enough of self-inflicted emotional/physical harm to yourself. There are many causes of acne, be it diet, stress, skincare etc; YOU need to find your cause and work towards solving that issue. Throughout the recent 2 years, I have discovered different causes of my acne and I will be sharing my journey along the way.
Acne is the ultimate bane of our existence, especially during our teenage adolescent days. The volcanic red bumps that ooze pus not only looks extremely unsightly, it also leaves a nasty scar for the unlucky. Unfortunately, I am one of the few unlucky ones that suffer from major acne scarring. No, I am not talking about the pigmentation scars that disappear after a couple of years. I am referring to the deeply pitted acne scars that last a lifetime. Even after clearing my acne, I am still plagued by the ugly pitted boxcar scars that are scattered all around my forehead and cheeks. For the longest time, it has affected my confidence and I could never post a photo up without photoshopping my scars away.
Fret Not, There's Hope!!!
Thankfully, Dr KS Wong heard my pleas and introduced Kowayo Baby Skin Booster (逆龄针), the LATEST scar fillers in Singapore, and I am so excited to share my amazing results in today's entry. THERE IS HOPE DARLINGS! You will never face the mirror the same way again!
Hello back from Singapore! It's been awhile since I had the time to sit down and pen my thoughts. Time is flying insanely fast and we're already in March. I literally have no idea how or what happened in the past two months. I guess this all boils down to being too busy and overwhelmed at work. Haha, who's with me?
Well, I know many of you are curious about my job since I am constantly traveling. I would love to tell you something cool like a ninja or a spy but I am just a plain ol' designer, selling my life to the fashion industry. My friends would always joke that they have to book an appointment a month before just to grab dinner with me. Yup, the life of a designer is not that glamorous after all. All the blings and glam is just a facade of a severely exploited industry.
Nonetheless, things have been going pretty well for me. There are ups and downs but I am always thankful for the people that I get to meet along the way. I hope 2017 has been great to you so far. Mine had a pretty exciting start which you'll get to read all about it in this post.
At some point in time, a good skincare product will sneak its way into your beauty shelf because we all are on the quest for healthy, radiant skin. Aside from my skin-savior dermatologically prescribed line of skincare that I follow extremely closely, the Kiehl's Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream has slowly made its way into my daily skincare regime and is definitely here to stay.
Hola guys!! Back again with another skin update + aftercare post as promised! Hope everyone is doing well! I have just recovered from a massive fever episode which jeopardised my entire weekend schedule. My fever has since went down but now I am stuck with a terrible cough. (T__T)
Anyway, a little while back, I did the Venus Viva Nano Fractional RF Energy treatment to get rid of my acne scars and my skin had improved so much from then. If you are interested, you can read the post here. Back then, I mentioned an amazing hack that drastically reduced my redness post treatment and today,
I am gonna share all my aftercare secrets with you! *You can thank me later, yo' sister gotcha back ;)
Hola!! I am so excited to write this post to share more about my acne journey with you darlings. You guys have heard me rant since forever about my crazy acne-prone skin. Today, we are exploring a new facial resurfacing technology to get rid of hideous acne scars.
Backstory, I have been on tons of drugs from Doxycycline to the infamous Accutane. They were all temporary cures and even now at 22, I am still suffering from acne... Have been in a HATE-HATE relationship with acne for 10 years.... is this what a long-term relationship feels like?!! As of today, I still do have frequent breakouts but they are much more controlled compared to the volcanic face I had 2 years ago.
