Hello! I just want to share to all of you my newly found beauty secret. A lot of people are raving about this product in Instragram. When I lose a lot of weight, my skin became darker and I also remember I went swimming last summer 2013 during my birthday and I got myself a little sunburn. I hate to look at my uneven skin tone especially around my arms 'coz I'm fond of wearing sleeveless. I got really curious by all the reviews of this soap so I decided to try this. Actually, I saved extra money to buy this product since the price is really expensive. The soap cost a staggering

My Year-End BDO Rewards Treat

at 1/06/2014 0 comments
I was so happy that 2013 ended already. I can't believe how did I survived that year most especially to all the super typhoon Haiyan victims. I feel so sorry for them that they've not only lost their homes but also their loved ones. 2013 to me also is a bit tragic 'coz me and my boyfriend's investment is lost. Money is easier to find but the friendship and relationship that was built for so long is gone in just seconds. We can't believe that the people we treat as family betrayed us and never really treated us family ever since. To make the long story short and to silence the feud between us all, we decided to left them and we hope so we'll never see and hear each other again. This time were closing the doors to our hearts 'coz 6 years of our lives have been wasted and nothing left. Duh??? I'm so full of drama right now....Anyway, let's get back to business! I therefore believe that the best things are FREE!!! I'm so glad to finally spend my points using BDO rewards. Actually, it's just my second time to spend the points of my BDO rewards and I just got more excited 'coz the first time I've spent it, I'm able to buy a pair of Ipanema sandal for a friend then (though not anymore).... Ha! The irony right?...thinking of it makes me wanna cry that I've spent my thousand points to a person who then became the mastermind of all the misfortunes of our lives. Sometimes I don't want to look back but looking back also helps us learn a lot of things that we should not trust even the closest friend and family member. Here I go again, talking about that person...tsk! I feel so sad about it maybe because I'm not a sociopath unlike that person. Duh??? I'm helping myself to feel happy again and one thing that made me happy is my latest haul in Watsons. Honestly, I'm not really into buy 1 take 1 stuffs. I'm usually pessimistic about this kind of promos but it proves me wrong that not all buy 1 take 1 stuffs are unsatisfactory. Look what I've got people! I'm so happy to share this to you 'coz this product is really amazing and it's really effective to my hair. I have a very coarse and dry hair and it's color treated too. If I don't use conditioner to my hair, it's impossible to comb it while it's wet. I'm looking for a hair product that works like a conditioner and a hot oil treatment and this product is unbelievably all in one bottle.
 You can get this 4 items for about 300+ points and the best part is you can choose different colors or variety for this kind of buy 1 take 1. 

Here are the photos for a closer look of the product label and it's consistency. I've not yet opened the strawberry but this honey is really great for my thick, color treated, and super dry hair. I can't believe how shiny it is right now...

How to use it? Well, the instruction said that you should towel dry your hair first and leave it for 5 to 10 minutes but what I did is, I just squeezed a my hair for excess water. Make sure to squeeze it really good because sometimes we can't really help but get lazy. Honestly, I use the wax treatment like every time I want to take a bath. I've tried taking a bath and not use this product to my hair and damn it my hair is just stiff like a broomstick and it's really brittle and I have lots of falling hair. The downside to this product is you have dandruff problems, it won't help you against it. Maybe use an anti-dandruff shampoo like Nizoral first then use the treatment wax after. 

I've tried the towel dry your hair first instruction at first but then again I grew tired of it and didn't follow the instructions anymore and guess what? The effect is still the same. LOL!

How I Got Rid of My Adult Acne

at 1/01/2014 6 comments
During my high school days, I remember I don't really have that much breakouts on my face even until college. Pimples only comes out when I'm terribly stressed out during exams or I ate too much bad foods. When I reached adulthood and became intimate, I consulted my doctor on what medication she could recommend to me and she prescribed me Diane 35. I religiously take the pill for 1 and half years and it's effectiveness is 100%. It will prevent you from getting knocked up, boost your appetite that will help you gain weight, improves the texture of your skin and make your menstruation regular. The only downside of this pill is it's expensive and when I stopped using it, I didn't have my menstruation for about 6 months. My hormones are out of control and I noticed that not a day I have a pimple breakout. My used to be clear skin is now full of red bumps and I can't stop squeezing them that led to scarring. I've consulted a few known dermatologists in my area and tried every treatment they can think of. I even tried the dreadful Glycolic treatment in which every time I went for my session, it feels like my face was like bitten by fire ants and you might piss in the clinic in no time because the pain is unbearable if you're the kind of person who can't tolerate pain. For me, the pain level is 8 out of 10 and 10 is the highest. Regrets came in last and there's nothing I can do anymore but to accept the fact that I'm suffering from adult acne because I stopped taking Diane 35. I thought I could never take my flawless skin back to it's original state. I can't look at myself in the mirror, refused to go out without make-up on and pitied myself everyday. I can't believe this thing happened to me and I told myself that if I can find a way to get rid of this adult acne, I will really share it to the world to help those people who suffered from this condition. Anyway, here are the products I've used and the things I've done to survived this shameful skin condition. 

Tip #1
If you are overweight, you need to lose weight and change your food intake. Check first maybe you have food allergies. For a month, try having a healthy diet which is less oily, full of greens and fruits. Avoid sweets for a month because sugar can also trigger pimple breakouts. Most of all, exercise regularly to burn all the extra calories and bad moods away.

Tip #2
Get as much sleep as you can. If you have difficulty sleeping, I recommend you take herbal supplements to aid your sleeping problems. I recommend you take Sleepasil or Sleepwell capsules once in awhile but avoid being dependent on it also. Too much is always bad for your self. If you have doubts on these pills, try to consult your doctor first.

Tip #3
Wash  your hair regularly and avoid putting a lot of hair products to your hair that might get unto your face. Wash and dry your hair before you go to bed especially if you went out that day. If you're really tired and feel so lazy washing your hair every night, tie your hair while sleeping or cover your head with shower cap or make a bun to keep the hair from falling or sticking to your face while you sleep. Also, don't forget to change your pillow case every week to make sure you are free from dust and allergens that might cause pimple breakout. Washing your hair everyday may cause your hair to get dry but I'd rather have dry hair than having acne. Don't forget to have a hair treatment once a week to bring back the moisture to your hair. 

Tip #4
As much as possible, do not squeeze your pimples or acne because it will really lead to scarring and dark spots. I you really can't help it, wash your face with very cold water after to close your pores or try applying ice. Do not rub or touch the affected area as much as possible for the condition not to worsen. 

Tip #5
Always wear a mask as much as possible especially while cleaning the house, playing with pets and commuting to school and work. It's okay to look weird wearing mask infront of strangers in public utility vehicles than facing friends, co-workers and classmates with your acne bombarded face. Always exercise good hygiene and let your friends know why you're doing it so they won't feel awkward about you wearing mask around them.

Tip #6
Know the root of your acne breakouts. Some people are allergic to dust, certain cosmetic ingredients and foods. Minimize your sugar intake like chocolates, cakes, ice cream and the like 'coz this might cause your pimple breakouts.

Tip #7
If you have sensitive skin, avoid self medication. Ask your dermatologist on what can she prescribed to your adult acne. If your skin is not as sensitive as mine, read reviews of real people around the world on how did they get rid of their adult acne. As to myself, below are the list of the products I religiously use on my face. I will really find time before I go to bed to apply these products on my skin. I've also known some of the products on my list through my friends having the same skin problems.

PRODUCTS AND TREATMENTS I USED:
  1. SNOE SHOO-ZIT OUTZIT SOAP - you will need to use this soap religiously. From the moment you wake up and before you go to bed. For first time users, this soap have a stingy feeling but after using it for about 1 month, you will get used to it. You need to tolerate it girls for the sake of beauty. I truly say that this soap is heaven sent to me because I've tried Cetaphil, Panoxyl, Beauche, Body Shop's Tea tree soap and their seaweed product line but this one soap, a locally made soap with local ingredients is the answer to all my beauty prayers. If you think this soap is quite expensive, don't be discouraged. P199.99  or I say P200.00 is nothing as long as you can see real results. Don't worry, this soap will last for almost 2 months esp. if you will cut them into small pieces. The vintage inspired packaging is really adorable too if you're a fan of vintage inspired stuffs like me. The other downside of this soap is it will make your face shiny and I don't want my face to look shiny but I have to choose between shiny and pimple free. To all the people behind this product, thank you!!! Anyway, you can buy this product at Cinderella stores. I'm just not sure it's nationwide. 
  2. SKINMATE'S SHARK OIL - I tell you I'm a bit hesitant to use this product at first because the packaging looks cheap and the price is unbelievably low but I've heard a lot of good reviews about this product and I'm desperate enough to get rid of my acne scars. The first time I used this product, I thought it will sting but thank God, it didn't! In two days, your skin will look really red and it starts to peel. I'm looking for a product that won't give a micro peeling effect. I want my peeling to be macro so that the process will be fast. This product didn't disappoint me and it gave me a very large peel at my face. The downside of this product is if you're working or still going to school, you will look weird with all those skin falling out of your face. If you have the guts, then this product will work for you. I recommend you use it during long holidays so you can just stay at home during the peeling process. Also, don't you ever go out of the house without your sunblock on during the peeling process because it will burn your skin. Only use this product if you want a specific acne scars to disappear. Not intended for everyday use. You can buy this product at any Watsons store.
  3. GT BLEACHING CREAM - the best of them all!!! I've emptied 3 containers of this product already and I keep coming back for more. It will not only whitens and get rid of your pimple scars but it will also prevent acne from popping out of your precious face. For first time users, you will feel really hot upon your face and it feels like you're having a fever. You will start to peel after 3 days and noticed that no more or less pimple appearance. This product will flatten your bulgy pimple overnight as to my own observation. After 3 months of using this product religiously, my pores are finer, my skin is tighter, no more acne scars, less blackheads and pimple free face. It will only sting every time you wash your face with soap. If you can't tolerate the pain during the peeling process while using this product, don't use the Snoe soap this time yet. Try using Cetaphil this time and when you think the peeling process is over, go back to using Snoe Shoo-zit Outzit soap. Again, if you are ashamed walking out of the house with your red face on, wear a mask. Continue using this cream every night like a night cream for your face to get used to it. You can buy this product at any Watsons store.
  4. BODY SHOP'S TEA TREE OIL - don't look at the price (P500.00+). Invest a good product for your face because our face is the first thing we can always recognize every time we meet people. People will judge you on how you look nowadays. This product have a lot of healing properties. It will not only dries up your pimple fast, but it's also effective for insect bites and helps you relax. The product will last for almost 2 months in my case even if I use it almost every night. There's no peeling process with this product and you can use it alternately to GT and Shark Oil. 
  5. DIAMOND TOME PEELING - have a micro-dermabrasion once a month to smoothen and even out your skin tone. Go to your nearest and trusted dermatologist to book for a session. This will really help lessen your acne scars and make your pores fine. 

Warning: We all have different skin types. It's better to do a skin test and read the labels first before using a new product. If you're all wondering, I have a combination skin type.

MY FACE PROGRESS BY USING THE PRODUCTS ABOVE
JULY 08, 2013
This is the condition of my skin before using the products above. At this time, I'm only using Beauche Glutathione soap and sometimes Cetaphil Facial wash to clean my face. As you can see, my skin don't like the  Beauche soap. It only whitens my face and make my pimples really red. I also use Celeteque Pimple Lotion which comes in green squeezee bottle. Celeteque's green color products are good for acne prone skin. It did dried up my pimples but every time a pimple dries up, a new one appears again. The process is always like that and it's really frustating. Anyway, this is what will happen to your face if you prick your pimples. As long as possible stop touching your face and cut your nails to prevent yourself from pricking your pimples using your hands. I really regret everything 'coz it leaves a scar on my face and it's very ugly to look at them during close-up photos and encounters.

This is my latest pic wearing only a red lipstick and not even a powder. Right now, I only maintain the Shoozit soap and 3x a week every night the GT Bleaching cream. This is a no filter photo and it's taken using Canon Eos 500d just to make it clear that I'm not joking about this regimen. 

Happy New Year 2014. This will officially be my first post for the year 2014. May we all learn from 2013 and take good care of our body. Don't forget to say hello at the comment box below!!! Chao!

GT Bleaching cream healed my adult acne bombarded skin. I'm still using it regularly and I use this facial scrub to remove dead skin cells. (April 22, 2014)
