On and off I might have outbreaks again. Till when my facial therapist personally introduced me to a product which they did the R&D in Taiwan, and people that tried it has wonderful results. You can try to search for TST Tin's secret products. Cheers! :)


I went to TCM cos I thought if I could get rid of my acne naturally, why not right. But TCM alone did not work for me either =/ I agree that we do have to look for other products/skin treatment to go with TCM in order to achieve best result.

I have been visiting the same facial boutique for 2 years now. After spending the past 7 years abroad in colder weather, my skin took a turn for the worse when i returned. On normal days, my skin is red and blotchy and my pores enlarged. At worse, it becomes dry and sensitive and my makeup just clumps because of all the breaking skin. After visiting this facial boutique my skin managed to return to how it used to be. You can google J Studios, they have alot of great reviews if it helps.


:D

I have combination skin with acne breakouts because of hormonal imbalance. Just last Saturday, I went to a dermatologist to have a facial and they suggested I try their sulfur mask (I was initially gonna do bleaching to lighten up acne scars) because it's supposed to dry up pimples. It actually works. It's just a weird feeling when they apply it on your face because it's really cold and stings a little (because it's cold), but it did dry up my acne.

I had really bad acne around my eyebrows. Every time I plucked them I have at least 3,4 pimples appeared.... it was a disaster. However, I had microblading embroidery http://www.follicle.com.sg/microblading ... -singapore and my skin in this area improved. By this experience I have found out that my skin doesn`t bear to be plucked so if you have the same problems - stop plucking.

Hello
Acne and dry skin maybe really bad to deal with. However there exist natural remedies that may help you deal with the problem.Most products for treating acne are meant for people with oily skin and using them will only make your skin even more dry and irritated. You should always moisturize your face using natural products like aloe vera which works really well. You may use aloe vera directly from the leaf or you may buy it in cosmetic shops around you.

Try Vitamin C Shower head. I have really dry skin and Singapore weather makes my face full of acne. I tried so many cosmetics, herbal products are much recommended depending on your skin type. I also started using Vitamin C shower head and it is blessing to my hair and skin. May be you want to give it a try as Singapore has lot of chlorine content in the water, hence skin and hair deteriorate.

Acnes usually caused by our diet, sleeping habits, cleanliness and wrong products being used.

I also used AHA skincare (drops on my face and don't have to rince).

Should I go to the dermatologist?


I am facing sun burns on my face, on my mom's advise i applied coconut oil.
Usually i have to work in sun, when i am facing burns again and again.
Is there any medicines which will help me for rescue?

Coconut oil won't stop the burns. First, you need a wide brimmed hat and sunglasses to keep the sun off your face. Then use a high SPF sunscreen on your face. You may wish to consider a zinc oxide sunscreen. Do a bit of research.

Coconut oil has a high comedogenic factor i.e. pore-clogging

I have used the VLCC sun screen lotion.
Irritation still persists and had severe burns.
I need a natural remedy.

i use acid toners, like those that contains AHA/BHA. i find that it really minimises my breakouts but must moisturise after it or else skin will be too dry.

We've started using this product called Motherdirt which is only available in the US (I think), so you have to get it shipped to someone there and get them to send it over. Its all natural and basically puts "good bacteria" back onto your skin. Its like the whole "biome" discussion about gut health and needing good bacteria, but its for your skin. Our daughter was starting to get really bad skin and a friend recommended it. We were a bit sceptical but it was amazing how quickly it worked. Literally within a couple of days her skin started clearing up. I use it now as well (just to nourish my skin) and it really has made it feel softer and healthier.

If none of these things are working for you, Leave them all and give a rest to your skin, you don't even
need to use your sop for some time and you will start seeing results and make sure you also not eating oily and sugary items.
