My Facial Routine

My face had been with acne for I think most of the time.

Last 2 months was the worst. Big acne kept popping on my face, and at one time I can count until 15 big acne spot on my face. That was horror. When I went to see the doctor, she gave me an antibiotic & also vitamins. But the acne problem seems don't want to clear off from my face. There's one time, I felt like I don't want to look at the mirror, my self-esteem became lower. And I feel like I don't want to talk to anybody. What a disaster. :(

And then, I start google-ing from the internet to find a solution for my acne problem. Many of them who have acne problems will take accutane that prescribe from skin specialist. But hey! The cost was like RM200/month and they have to continue taking the pills for 6 months. Wow! That was a lot of money consumed. Not to mention the side effects of the medicine. You will suffer dryness skin of the skin & muccus membrane. You can read it more here

I decided to read more solution to my acne problem. Then I stumble upon a forum which discuss a lot of solution for acne problems. I think it was maybe LowYat Forum or MalaysianBabes. I can't remember which one. There's a lady, who is her mother is a dermatologist, she done many research about acne problems and she found out that basic facial regime for people with acne problem should use Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser and Pan Oxyl Acne Gel (2.5%) which contained 2.5% of benzoyl peroxide. And she also mentioned if we works in an air-conditioned room, we should apply a moisturizer which will keep our face moist and not oily. So she suggest to use Neutrogena Moisturizer. 

So, I went to the Guardian Pharmacy and search for the item that she suggested. But I only manage to find Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser, and Neutrogena Moisturizer. There is few types of moisturizer that falls under Neutrogena brand. So, I decided to use the Oil Free type. But no Pan Oxyl Acne Gel 2.5% to be found, they only have Oxy 5 and Oxy 10. But I'd read somewhere, Oxy is quit strong so the pimple will still keep coming back if your skin doesn't suit with it. Then I start searching for a substituted, and later on I find that Mycin T3 will show a good result for acne problems. And then I make another trip to the Pharmacy, and bought Mycin T3.

After I had used the 3 items (Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser, Mycin T3 and Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturizer) for nearly 1.5 months, acne at my face had reduced. And now I only have pimples, white head and acne scars. I'm so happy with the results. But still, I have to find a solution to make the acne scars go away. Hahaha.

This are the 3 items that I used to treat my acne problems. So, maybe you out there have a problem like me, do give it a try. :)

How did I did my facial routine:-
1. Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser - Use it every time you take your shower (2x a day, morning & evening).
2. Mycin T3 - Use it after Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser (2x a day, morning & evening).
3. Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturizer - Use it after you apply Mycin T3, make sure your face had absorb Mycin T3 (I only apply it on the morning, before going to work).

::: morning eryne.. eh mcm iklan plak blog eryne kali nih [huhu] your english pun very2 good! hari tuh saya ada tgk dlm tv, pasal jerawat. pakar tuh kata jika jerawat di dahi tandanya tekanan, jerawat di pipi tandanya ketidakseimbangan hormon, manakala jerawat di rahang tandanya sistem limfa yang lemah.. well, mcm betul jugak kata2 pakar tuh.

::: basuh muka sebetul2nya [terutama ketika mengambil wuduk, doa dlm hati & selawat byk2 supaya hilang jerawat], tidur 6-8 jam secukupnya, jgn stress, makan makanan seimbang [buah2an & sayur2an], bantal di kepala perlu bersih krn debu2 & hama juga salah satu penyumbang kpd masalah pembentukan jerawat] jika teruk, jumpa doktor & pakar.

::: anyway, suka gak baca 'diari' eryne nih sbb dah lama tak singgah [huhu] citer 'mimpi' eryne tuh pon best [hehehe]..
