! Adult Acne !

                                                                      Acne-free face
When I was browsing through CLEO August edition, I found something interesting, Acne! Yeah, maybe it is an out of date thing for others especially people of my age. The problem is I was acne-free during school life. But after growing up, especially in university life, acne really attacked me. Hohohoho. With Iran’s polluted weather, my skin condition became worse. But now in Malaysia it became better. Alhamdulillah.

This article from CLEO speaks about adult acne. It’s written there: adult acne is more common than you think and needs a different pimple-busting strategy from your school-girl days. Upgrade your regime with these pimple-busting steps that do the job without drying up your post-adolescent skin.

Step 1: Choose a cleanser. The cleanser should have creamier texture for acne-prone skin. If the skin is oily, gel cleanser is the best.
Examples given by CLEO:
1) Garnier Pure Pore Unblock Foam ~ RM9.90
2) Laniege Pure Face Cleansing Milk ~ RM80
3) Thalgo Micro-marine Algae Cleansing Bar~ RM79
4) Anna Sui Oil Control Gel Cleanser ~ RM88
5) L'Oreal Paris Pure Zone Purifying Gel ~ RM16.90
I'm using L'Oreal Perfect White Cleanser. The price is affordable. If I'm not mistaken, around RM 20-RM27.

Step 2: Slough away. We have dead skin cells that can plug up our pores. So we can try scrub or a toner with fruit enzymes rather than alcohol for a gentle option. Avoid too-grainy scrub. 
Examples given by CLEO:
1) Vichy Norma-derm Purifying Astragent Toner ~ RM64.90
2) Eucerin Mild Daily Scrub ~ Rm38.90
3) Natio Young Freshen Oil Control Toning Lotin ~ Rm26
4) Biotherm Biopur S.O.S Normalizer Exfoliating Lotion ~ RM98
5) Shiseido Pureness Pore Purifying Warming Scrub ~ RM79
6) Clearasil Ultra Spot Scrub ~ RM14.90
The one I'm using is L'Oreal Perfect White Scrub and Toner. Well,  I use most from L'Oreal. Hehehe. I don't know why but I really like that brand. I think it suits  me well.

Step 3: De-stress your face. Keep our skin well- moisturized. Moisturizers soothe irritation, soften dryness and smoothen. 
Examples given by CLEO:
1) Clinique Anti-blemish Solutions Clearing Moisturizer ~ RM95
2) Biotherm S.O.S Normalizer Normalizing Moisturizing Care ~ RM 135
3) Ettusas Acne Whitening UV SPF24 PA++ ~ RM81
4) Oxy UV Tinted Protector SPF50 PA++ ~ RM27.90
5) L'Oreal Paris Dermo-Expertise Pure Zone Deep Control Anti-Imperfection Moisturizer ~ RM32.90
6) The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Blemish Fade Night Lotion ~ Rm55
Still the same . Using L'Oreal.

Step 4: Stay in control. After cleaning our face, apply on pimple-gel packed full of intensive anti-bacterial and skin-clearing ingredients 2 to 3 times a day. Be careful while choosing the product. Don’t pick the harsh one, or else your face will be very dry since some of them contain very strong ingredients.
Examples given by CLEO:
1) Origins Spots Remover Anti-Blemish Treatment Gel ~ Rm50
2) Milab Acne Pen ~ RM29.90
3) Babor Perfect Combination Purifier Gel ~ RM130
4) Garnier Pure Sos Blmish Clear Pen ~ RM12.90
5) Clearasil Ultra Spot Clearing Cream ~ RM14.90
This one I have tried several. Once Clean and Clear and once Oxy. But now I am applying some acne-blemish treatment brought by my brother from Egypt.

Step 5: Pamper ourselves. Refine pores during weekends with a clay mask. You can do it while watching television. If there are only pimples in certain parts, we can use the mask only on those areas.
Examples given by CLEO:
1) Clarins Pure and Radiant Mask ~ RM118
2) Garnier Pure-Self Heating Sauna Mask ~ RM5.90
3) Biotherm Biopur S.O.S Normalizing Balancing Mask ~ RM100
I bought Skinz Care Mask for the first time. Just wanted to try. And it turned out to be suitable for me!

These steps really work. I have tried them but if you neglect them, then the acne will come out again. So try to be consistent. (I am giving an advice especially for myself).
Ok. Until here only. See u next time. Anyong!!!

Where can I buy Loreal Deep Zone Purifying gel? I can't it in Guardian or Watson and even COLD STORAGE!

firuz akhtar said...

Really? Wow, that's weird. Maybe you can ask the staffs at the store when you visit next time. Or maybe it's already out of stock now. Try asking any Loreal staffs in Guardian or Watsons. Maybe they can recommend something different that is similar to it.:)

Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined
out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take
a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
