I tried that about a year ago, and I love what it does to my skin too. Except for the dry lips and eyes, the skin really glows and the zits are gone! I took it for about 6 months, and haven't been bothered by spots since.

I went to this clinic in Kovan. Pretty good. Tried costly derm and didn't work out well. Sometimes expensive may not work! >.<
At the end of the day, the World is still a beautiful place. :)

I found this article through Google. I hope you find it helpful:

5 Natural Remedies For Getting Rid of Acne

If you have ever suffered from acne, you know how painful it can be! If the pain is not bad enough, you also get ugly scars! Acne can happen both to teenagers as well as adults! For some people, the acne eventually goes but the scar remains for a long time; for others, acne vulgaris is a regular affair! In this article I will tell you about some of the natural remedies you can use to treat acne!

Before I go on to elaborate on the natural remedies, I must tell you that if you are allergic to any of these substances, you must stop its use immediately! Also, if these natural remedies do not help you, you may eventually have to go for more expensive alternatives such as dermabrasion and laser treatment! For most people, however, these remedies usually work wonders!

One more thing: regular washing of your face with clean water is a habit you must inculcate, if you have not already! Also, if you apply make-up or cosmetics, it is important that you remove the make-up/cosmetic once its job is over, instead of letting it remain on the skin. A lot of cosmetics contain powerful chemicals that would harm your skin in more ways that you could imagine!

Okay, I have rambled enough now, so here are some of the recommended natural treatments for acne:

Lemon Juice: The lemon is one versatile remedy provided by nature - you can cure so many ailments with it - even acne vulgaris! The lemon juice contains natural bleaching agents that would help you get rid of the redness caused by acne. The lemon juice also helps in removing the acne scar tissue so that new, healthier tissue can emerge in its place.

The treatment is simple: get a clean cotton swab or pad, and use that to apply lemon juice on to the affected area! Leave it like that for some time, and then wash the area with clean water!

Apple Cider Vinegar: Before using any kind of acne treatment, it is important to note that our skin has the tendency to renew and rejuvenate itself naturally, over time. Apple Cider Vinegar detoxifies your body by cleansing it of all the toxins that are causing acne; on top of that, it also speeds up our skin's rejuvenation process. You can take either it as an oral medicine if you want, or apply it on the affected area of the skin!

Oatmeal: Along with lemon, this is one of the most commonly used natural remedies for acne! Mix oatmeal powder with rose water and apply it on the affected area, then leave it on the skin for at least 10-15 minutes, after which you should wash the face with cold water. Do this every day and you would notice that not just your pimples but even those ugly acne scars have vanished!

Egg whites: Not many people know that you can use egg whites in order to treat acne! Create a facemask out of egg whites and leave it on your face for an entire night; it is preferable to wear this 'mask' at bedtime for obvious reasons!

The Tomato-Cucumber Combo: These oft-eaten vegetables are also great in treating acne. Extract the liquid juice from both these vegetables and then mix them; then wash your face thoroughly, and apply the juice on to the affected area! The antioxidant properties of tomato would help prevent further damage of your skin. These two vegetables also help in making the skin smoother, tighter and stronger!

I went to Celevenus clinic at Ngee Ann City before my wedding to treat my outbreak. Dr Dylan was good... he combined oral medication and BBL treatment for my case. My skin managed to clear before my big day.

I've seen teenagers going to seek acne treatment there too. so you may want to consider.

Here's their website on acne treatment:

Hope it helps!

Hello!

To those of you who recommended blue light therapy; where did you take it? Can you recommend any places that does this? Would have been great! I really want to get rid of my acne and acne scars once and for all now!

Thanks in advance :)

Let me share with you my story.At the age of being in my mid 30s, I started popping on both my cheeks very badly,even my kids used to ask me whats wrong :cry: ..well, I went to see Dr Woffles Wu, I paid lots of money everytime I went there. I did chemical peels, madonna peels,and had to eat 2 antibiotics everyday. No difference but I paid more than 1k everytime I went. Then I went to Dr Joyce Lim, she did a TCA, and gave me a Non oily moisturiser and a Retin A cream, I came home and never used it. My acne got worse,

I went back to WW, and he did dermabrasion, and extraction. Then he injected my pimples, imagine the torture and physical pain I felt.

The acne bumps went down only after 2 weeks, but still new acne popped out elsewhere. I then saw my Retin A cream lying in the drawer and decided to use it. To my amazement, I saw results in 2 days, even the acne scars got lighter.

clinic at aljunied

Postby anderaaa » Wed, 23 Jan 2013 5:05 pm

I can recommend a clinic around aljunied mrt. It's called TJ medical, its not a skincare specialist centre per se but they have a dermotologist around. Look for this dermatologist called Yvonne, she is very good.

My cousin used to have very bad acne on her face,back and chest. after consulting Yvonne, her skin improved drastically. she did dermabrasion and of course the doctor said that it was also due to hormones ( this kinda things cant be controlled ) oh and drink more water, change the pillow covers often too, very impt!!

Hi everyone

Just wanna share my experience on the derm that I have been consulting.
Ive developed adult acne some time last year and went to see Dr Phay at specialist skin center. Was prescribed to antibiotics and some topical creams. had concurrently also went for her silkpeel treatments.

Acne has gradually subsided after 3 months and now am dealing with the post acne scars. Those who are still facing some acne issues dont be too disheartened, and could try going to Dr phay if youre interested. :)

i personally feel that taking antibiotics is the most effective for me, however my doc said that i have to complete the whole course of 18 months..

taking medication together with monthly facials actually made my skin much better, lesser break outs.. just some oil clogs due to the humid weather here in singapore..... :(
