#acneawareness

Wednesday, December 9, 2015

Adult acne. Nobody likes that. Nobody enjoyed been reminded about how bad their skin is. Nobody can get over that phase you made to them about their poor complexion. This could be a mental torture to US. Yes, us. Including me. 

Whenever I told people about how bad it was and how I counter it, these people would find it skeptical. Because they have yet to see my worst. I'm not being negative, instead I'm felt really thankful for what I have now. 

Everyone in my family does not have acne problem. Which supposingly I does not have it when I was young. 

Shits happen one day.. And my nightmare came true. 

I had my worst breakout ever and it was so bad I had to leave the house without makeup and it's too unsightly to go without a face mask too. 
How did it happen? Well, it just happen.
Not a good feeling and I cried almost every night. 

I tried many whatever youtubers tips on clearing acne and it just doesn't work and I turn to a dermatologist or GP actually to get antibiotic and cleanser to get em fixed. 

Does make a little improvement but once I stopped the pills, it came back worst than ever. 

Which one day, I decided to Google every single possible solutions to make my acne disappear without the aids of pills. 

And once my skin stabilised, is started scarring care kit to clear whatever that was left behind. 

Took me almost a year to go back to almost.... Almost the very first stage of acne breakout look I had and eventually almost to the skin I used to have. 

If you guys has been following my post, you would notice it wasn't as bad as the image I shown above. (Yeap, that's me) 

But, good days don't last forever. 
My bad breakout comes and go. 
Here's one of the latest bad breakout I had after so Long. 
But, it does not bother me as much anymore. When you know you're more than that! I go to work and town without my makeup without the fear I had in the past. I'm more than just Acne-face. 

Of course, if I told you I'm feeling good with these marks over my face and I can't give a shit about it and just gonna leave em partying over the weeks... 

I Am Definitely LYING! 

So, been confident is one thing. But finding a solution to stop acne is another. 

I'm pretty sure you're more interested in knowing how I actually controlled my Acne and reduce my post-acne pigmentation instead of the #bemotivated #youarebeautiful content I'm suppose to put across in this post. K, but first..no promise or guarantee results from the solutions and I must emphasize that all skin are different. Because DNA are different.

1. Stop drinking 
2. Sleep early (before 10pm if possible)
3. Reduce on dairy products 
4. No spicy and salty and sugar for first month(best to avoid all times during the first three months) 
5. Eat cooked tomatoes every morning
6. Lemon and cucumber water day and night. 
7. Drink plenty of water throughout the day 
8. No BB cream or CC cream or liquid foundation or concealer or two way cake. till you only left marks and no inflam acne. Loose powder and compressed powder is fine. 
9. Avoid using makeup removal which contain oil. I'm using bifesta sebum cleansing lotion. 
10. Seek for professional advise from a beautician(avoid extraction and asked for high frequency treatment for a start) or dermatologist(which can be quite pricey.)
11. Avoid using oil blotting paper.
12. Cleanse your face often. Break the two cleansing a day rule for your case if your acne is pretty bad.opt for a gentle cleanser. 
13. Keep your skin hydrated so your red marks will start to look better. 
14. Avoid using whitening products with moisturising effect. Recommend to use hyaluronic-based. No oil content.
15. Don't rush every products in one shot 
16. Start with serum and gel moisturiser and avoid cream for bad stage acne. 
17. Stay happy, bodies does not work 
best at depressed stage. 
18. Apply sunshield whenever you're going out. Same thing, no oil. 
19. Take more tomatoes. Read point 5. 
20. Detox as often as you can. 

That's how my Magic works for me. Not every time... Because I no longer follow strict rules in time. Haha! 

Anyway, gonna catch my not so beauty sleep kinda sleep. Goodnight all! 

To make up for the scary images earlier on, a prettier face to end the night. Byeeeee~ 

Thanaka powder benefit

Saturday, November 28, 2015

Lazy Sunday but that's probably the only time I can do something for my skin. 

Speaking of natural skincare, I really think nothing can be as natural as Thanaka powder. 

I remembered a year back(hopefully not expired yet), I bought a thanaka powder from an online store.
Thanaka helps in whitening, reducing acne scarring, reduce pores, cool down redness, regulates moisture and it is one of the most raved natural ingredient used by Burmese as their anti aging skin care. 
Some prefer having their own branch and grinding stone to prepare the mask whenever they need it instead of the powder form. However, most natural stuff do not last for long as they does not have preservative. 
Not an avid user but I believe religiously using it would definitely benefit your skin in some ways. Of course! There are so many thanaka products in Singapore. You just need to "Google" for review and you should be safe! Haha

Paradise Teochew food tasting

Wednesday, November 25, 2015

Invited down for a feast with Paradise few weeks back. This time, with a new Asian concept!


Paradise Teochew Restaurant features an array of signature Teochew dishes, such as Teochew Braised Specialties, Sautéed Pomfret Fillet with Tomato and Salted Vegetables, Steamed Diced Chicken wrapped in Egg White Crepe, Crispy Sweet and Sour Noodle in Teochew Style, diners are certainly in for a gastronomic experience.

 

Located in an exclusive club house Chinese Swimming Club, be prepared to indulge in the essence of classic Teochew style signatures, from tantalizing appetisers and braised specialties to a full line-up of seafood, meat and poultries in the comfort of an intimate cozy ambience.

Teochew Style 潮式卤味三拼盘
One of my mum's Favourite dish. Instestine were well cleansed and the duck and pork trotter is so good.
  • Sautéed Pomfret Fillet with Tomato and Salted Vegetables 咸菜番茄煮鲳鱼件

    Slightly sour, slightly salty and some sweetness in a bowl. What impressed me was there's no or little sight of oil spotted in there when the fish was sautéed before hand. What sorcery is that?! I drained my bowl of soup and wanted more thou! Haha

Stewed Pork Ribs with Bitter Gourd and Cucumber in Casserole 黄瓜凉瓜排骨煲

Being a true blue Teochews ourselves and especially my mum, she claims that the soup takes a good heating skill to brew that good. She surrendered her taste bud to this. 
Pan-fried Omelette in Teochew Style 潮州蚝煎蛋

Wah! This!! In all honesty, this is the best oyster omelette I ever had. Not only they are generous with their oyster, these crispy yet soft inside egg makes me and my mum fight for the last piece.  
Being the filial Daughter myself, of course....I have to tell her its not so healthy for her and I took it. 
Fried Rice with Yam in Teochew Style 潮式芋头炒饭

This is my second fav apart from the oyster omelette. I duno why but the rice just smell so good. Every bite with a fragrance from the yam and sprinkles of peanuts. 
  Steamed Lotus Seed and Red Bean Paste Dumpling 鸳鸯水晶包 

I didn't finished it. Not a fan of red bean or lotus paste. But this taste like Mooncake to me just that it's not too sweet and I believe my Sister would have wanted more if she's here. 

Overall service: feels like first class lounge. Leon, who happens to serve us really gave us a good dining experience throughout the night and yes, I will definitely be back. (Especially for their omelette and fried yam rice) hahahha

Bkk trip with Baby

Friday, October 23, 2015

Had a pleasant stay at Pakdee Bed and Breakfast along pratunam where I get to feast as much as I can. 

It's an awesome trip though. 4days is not enuff! Except that, we missed our flight and rebooked another one which waited hours and wasted hourssssss:( thanks Jetstar for not giving chance. Thanks ah! 

Nevertheless, it's not gonna stop us from going there! 

We went to Chinatown Namxing for their fish maw and birdnest. 300baht for a huge portion of fish maw and 500 for our birdnest. (Seriously?) 
Had our lunch at somboon seafood at sian square. Marked up a 2000baht for these dishes. 

Beware of fake somboon restaurant out there people. Tutu Uncle will sometimes take tourist to "Somboon Dee" when they have no idea where it it and only knows the name "somboon"

The real somboon restaurant are well-known for their fried curry crab is cost around 350baht for medium crab. The fish is hugggggeeeee and cheap! Don't forget to try out their fresh raw prawn! Super good yo. 
At Siam square one, you can also enjoy BBQ/steamboat buffet at only 299baht. But limit to an hour of dining. 

One of my fav from our street food dig. "Chicken boat noodle" 40baht. 
Another fav from another alley! 45baht
I really love pig blood. And many weird food. So, this place is definitely a must go every year for me. (If I'm rich enuff) LOL! 
Spicy seafood rice (ka prow) at this place is real good but slightly pricey. This place at pratunam served really good dishes. Yup, their fresh raw prawns are good too.  

Check out our mega crepes which is only 130baht! 

Our first couple tee. Super cute. Haha!
Met new friends while waiting for our flight to BKK was something new for both of us. We met up for Party when we were there after. Yes to Party at Scratch Dog. *thumbs up*

Mad busy lately

Monday, October 5, 2015

Too busy with work and I've forgotten about my blog. Oh man...
Anyway... I've been eating a lot and so much I've gained 5kg! Really. So, I decided to deceive myself that it's only because I'm too blessed with love lately.
Received pretty photos from my Erjie from her wedding and I'm really glad she has found the right man who love and dote her right. 

Speaking of which, I've been seeing a lot of girls going thru the breakup stage because of their "true love" cheating on them or making use of them for anything you can name. To make it worse, it was ungracefully declared on their Facebook page that makes them famous. I mean, this is her life, her profile...her right to do anything to it but people who shared the post is something that sort of annoys me.

I think Singaporeans are too stressed up from the hectic lifestyle that they are so sick of routine, they just have to lay some topics to start drama. Like, really a MUST DO IT BRUH! 

One thing I couldn't stop telling my girlfriends is that, never ever forget your value. When the money's crumpled it does not lose its value. The past does not matter so long you do not bring that back to present and future. 

Of course, this is not a one man show. The girl gotta do the right thing too uh.
There shldnt be a double standard and to be able to compromise and forgive is a bonus. Because most people are basically bottling and tolerating their partner which resulted domestic violence at the end of the day. (Not that serious, I'm kidding)

I must say, I'm thankful to have known my boyfriend, Den. Somebody who was known for his short tempered actually compromise to my stubbornness. 
That very man who drew this just to make me happy. That man who would used up his last dime for his proper meal just to get me a "happy" meal. 
So.... This is how I grew my "happy" spare tyre. 

Anyway, I'm gonna sleep! Good night earthling!

Went to the one at Clarke Quay and the queue were legendary long. While waiting, the waitress passed us their digital menu where we order of food via tablet. 

We ordered too much for two but we managed to finish them though.
