What’s Up Skin?

It has been almost 2 months since I encountered bad acne yet again. This is the worst I’ve ever had. I never had a pimple growing up and now, I’m nearly 26 years old yet I need to battle with acne. I think this has something to do with my hormones.

It was my last month of the 6 months stretch for hormonal pills and I think this is withdrawal symptoms ? Not entirely sure though.

Also, I have been stressed a lot the past few weeks which may have made my bad skin condition even worse!

I was counting the spots of tiny pimples last week and I got so sad about it. I hate how it had to be on my cheeks so I got myself a few products that may help make my skin better.

  1. Etude House Wonder Pore Facial Wash – My best friend, Pam told me that Etude’s Wonder Pore facial wash is great, it may be a bit expensive for a facial wash but she says it makes her skin feel and look nice. I got myself one tube of it and tried it immediately, it has 10 benefit claims and says it deeply cleanses the pores and whatnot. It also has a cooling effect which is a bonus (cause I love that cool sensation lol) I have been using it for a good 2 weeks now. My acne has not worsen, it kind of flatten but it’s still there. Although I think the facial wash does its job by cleaning my face really well so that’s about it. I’ll wait for a few more weeks and we’ll go from there.
  2. Galderma Benzac 5% – I was meaning to buy the 10% one but they only had it in big tubes. I feel like the big one is too expensive here in MNL wherein it could be half the price if I have it bought in UAE so I just bought the small tube here and I will ask my brother to buy 1 big tube for me while he’s in Dubai. Now, I’ve been using this product for 4 days and so far, so good! It flattened most of my pimples and I love that it’s water-based so I don’t get a sticky feeling when I put it on my face.
  3. L’Oreal Micellar Water – It was given to me by Kyx together with an Infalliable Stay Fresh Liquid Foundation. I love how it cleanses and moisturizes my face! But really, why is my face always so dirty??? I mean a while ago when I woke up, I took a bath, washed my face with the Wonder Pore then used the Micellar Water and I still have dirt on my face? To think I have washed my face and cleansed it the same way last night! Anyway, yes it does clean my face so good and so far, I love it!

Now, I’m testing these 3 products and hopefully my skin will go back to its normal phase minus all the acne problems!
