sensitive skin

I see the lady Doc at Asia Healthpartners for my skin and anti-ageing concerns. I also have sensitive skin as I suffer from eczema. Dr Phua has given me a range of creams (Cetaphill and some other in-clinic skincare lotions) and supplements to combat that, and I find that my skin condition is better, I don't get hives so often and generally the condition of my skin feels healthier. I think this is partly lifestyle and genetics, and the weather here doesn't help. Skin supplements seem to regulate and strengthen my skin too. I guess it all helps in combination.
Hope you get better soon. :)

Hi Tinkerbell88,

Thanks!

I paid about $230 in total I think. The skin supplements is their in-house brand, and is a cocktail of antioxidants for skinhealth, lots of vitamins and other anti-ageing ingredients like resveratrol and coQ10, etc. It's quite an exhaustive list. My skin feels quite good on this. It seems less sensitive. My nutritionist friend also tells me that probiotics and omega fish oil are quite good, so I got a bottle each at my local pharmacy too, and am eating lots of yogurt and vitamin C on top of all that. Hope this helps you. I am due to go back to see the doc for my review in a week, and will probably askhersome more about modifying my diet. How are you doing with your skin? :)

Wow, that's quite a lot of vitamins, hahaha... probiotics & omega fish oil looks do-able. Do you think some food have some effect on the skin problem? my skin gets better though.. some really tiny little acne (well, not a real acne but looks like one though) sometime there when I woke up the morning, and yes.. a lot of white spot still there around my forehead (my doctor says it needs laser to get rid of this, ouch!), a bit desperate with this whole skin problem, I want to go back to europe!! hahahah lol

I think that diet does have a big part to play with skin yes. When I eat chocolate or lots of dairy, I seem to break out in spots, red wine is probably the biggest culprit for me. It gets better when I rest or eat lots of fruit and vegetables. You should get that spot checked and maybe yes it does need laser. What is it? A whitehead? Oil seed?I only go to that clinic I told you about now, been shopping around for years for a good doc previously. Anyway, summer is round the corner in Europe, so I don't know if that will make your skin worse or not. You should enjoy Singapore while you can. I'm quite used to it now, can't imagine living anywhere else in the world now.
:D

It's more oil seed, though sometime I have white head as well ='( and I think it's a bit better now compare than 3 weeks ago =) I guess I need to start thinking of selecting my food also (and maybe some vitamin). Thanks for you suggestion!!
