Skin Update: August 2014

Hello readers. I posted my last skin update long time ago. I cant even remember it. Some of you guys are asking how’s my skin. So here it goes…

During summer vacation, I managed to lessen the dark spots on my face using 20% TCA Peel which I bought online.

Unfortunately I broke out real bad this July and August. Why? Hormonal imbalance and the #1 cause is Stress. There’s a lot of schoolworks and papers. It’s our senior year in college. You know how stressful it is.

What did I do? Pimple injection. I could not take my cystic acne so I went back to my dermatologist after a few months. My last visit was in December 2013 due to lack of money. *student probs* 5 cycstic acne were injected. (100 pesos per pimple)

After the injection, the cystic acnes were a little flat already. Im writing this 28 hours after the treatment and I can barely see most of them aside from the blood clots.

Hormonal imbalance is another cause so my dermatologist gave me Acneadvance Praventin. Im not sure how long will I take the pills. I took the first pill this night. We’ll see how it goes. I’ll review it soon.

So that’s it for tonight. Btw, I’ll compare my skin condition from 2012, 2013 & 2014 this December with photos. So watch out for it! πŸ™‚

December 2013 Mini Haul + CorDerm Clinic review

I was supposed to post this last December. Haha. Sorry if it’s late. πŸ˜›

I finally had the courage to visit a dermatologist again. It’s because I’ve read a lot of positive feedback on CorDerm Advanced Dermatology and Laser Center. I was nervous when the nurse called my name but I was relaxed because Dra. Corcoran was calm and very nice when I talked to her. She did not force me to buy any of the products and avail services. She understands that I’m still a student so I’m on a tight budget. She was accommodating and the nurses as well. πŸ™‚

She recommended these items. I didn’t buy the sunblock and the meds for balancing hormones. I bought these because I think they’re the most important. πŸ™‚
