Lately I have been blessed with better skin, oklah...not really lately la, since the past June or so I switched from Olay to an Indonesian cosmetic brand, Tabitha, and since then my skin has been acceleratingly (oh yeah, accelerate okay memang sah tak tipu) better, clearer, fairer.....so memang Tabita tu really works well on me. Tak de la lagi jerawat and whatnot, muka mula mulus.....
Digandingkan dengan miracle water SKII yang introduced to me during a random visit to SKII's cosmetic counter last August....I managed to get even better skin. Skin tone more even. Less oil.
Look at my skin from my last Krabi trip?
See I told you I am not lying. Even Nina who was with me during the trip was amazed at how my skin looked she says just keep doing whatever I am doing because its working.
....I started realising that I am starting to have spots on my face. Freckle like. And my face at times jadi merah merah tak tentu pasal so during my last visit for facial at SRM @ Gardens (yeap, still go there sebab my package facial kat sana sampai hari ni tak abis abis lagi, can you believe it?) so I got the beautician to scan my face and guess what....
...despite the improvement on the outer layer of the skin (oh suke tengok my outer skin now...putih and the cells dah bersambung sambung balik macam sel sihat, tak macam dulu banyak oil breakout and merah2), my inner structure hat splatter of redness around the cheeks, chin and forehead.
Apparently thats an early sign of pigmentation and dehydration. I memang since then ada thirsty skin problem (oh oily diatas, dry di bwh....sangat problematic muka aku nih!) and coupled with aging and prolonged sun exposure, my skin's pigmentation effect has started to kick in early.
Damn. Just when I thought I am getting better la kan.
Anyways, I am prescribed to start being more disciplined over the use of sunblock (yes, even when I am indoors, especially when I spend more time outdoors), a hydration cream moisturiser and 4 times weekly use of puri mask and hydration mask.
Now terpaksa mula kesaikoan menjaga muka balik....
No pain no gain. Tak nak la dapat melasma problem pulak. I found out later kalau pigmentation problem is not addressed early then nanti the pigmentation can spread and scar the outer layer surface and its impossible to cure it then unless you undergo a laser surgery.
Then prevention is better than cure. Better combat it early then.
