My skin for 28 years and 11 months, before it became...
Tompok-tompok macam baru lepas demam campak. I tell you, demam campak pun tak persist for months :/
The tompoks are so disturbing to me as well as other people masalahnya. haha...How do I know? When I meet my friends when I was in KL, that's the first thing they ASKED! yea..they are so sensitive like that -_-" Obviously it bothers them so much that they have to ask! "what's with your face??!" with facial expression very similar to when you just witness kemalangan jalan raya gitu -_-"
After I got questioned by so many people..about my face (!) , I think it's time for me to properly invest in skincare. I have been a loyal shiseido user since I was 20. So, I was thinking maybe it is time to change. I don't know other skincare yang trustworthy, except SKII. Don't you agree? The price for daily routine product also are no much difference with Shiseido (except of course the miracle water which I contemplated to buy).
So I went to the SKII counter for skin analysis at the MV. The result showed nothing wrong with my skin. They said in conclusion, my skin is healthy. I asked if they would recommend me anything to at least stop the arising of pimples. They said I would just have to deal with the change of hormone due to my skin is changing weather. Maybe it is true. But the problem started even before I arrived in KL. sigh..
I went to Shiseido and took skin analysis. The result was the same except oily at the T-zone (obviously, KL was so hot). But the pimples are nowhere near the T-zone -_-" I asked if I could use anything to prevent the problem from getting worse? They can't recommend anything because according to them my routine are fine. But I insist. haha. Finally they 'allowed' me to buy Ibuki. A range to improvise your pores. I bought the promotional pack. I must say that Ibuki work wonders in cleaning the pores, therefore it helps to reduce the pimples. Alhamdulillah.
The problem does not stop there. haha.
Now I'm in Japan. Ibuki is strictly a no-no in here. It is autumn. Your skin tend to get dry. Ibuki would just make it worse because it would eliminate all the oil needed that helps moisten your skin. Learned it by hard. So, I went to the Shiseido counter to get my skin analyzed. As the result, my skin is healthy, but dry. It has causes the pimple to come back again. I don't get it actually.haha...because isn't pimples are caused by blocked pores? that is by oil? hmm...my skin are so messed up due to pindah randah negara. Sabar jela..
So, she told me to stick with my old routine, plus, ubat jerawat. haha.
End up with Shiseido shopping spree ^_^
So, I have returned to old routine with a little twist here and there recommended by the salesperson. Let's see how it goes :)
I read a few blog by other doctorate graduates who were having similar pimple attack. They said the pimples weren't just for days, they will persist for months! -_-" Am I one of those who suffers the same aftermath? If that's so, the tips here will only be, patience.
Sebotol patience cream please!
