Acne FAQs

Since most of my readers asked me questions about common things so i decided to do a FAQ to address the common acne concerns that i keep on receiving.

I'll be making a little widget later so that i could direct readers on this post.

1. Help! My acne is really bad. What products can i use?
-I have experienced acne too & i know how it makes a person feel so low about his/her skin. I could say "been there,done that" already but it was a very tough journey,indeed. If you have read my blog from the start (which i very much doubt.hehe) i have clear skin to start with, so my "acne days" are well-documented here. You can back read some of my early posts to see what are the products that i have tried & my thoughts about them.

Now, one thing that i wanted to point out first is that the time when i had my acne, i'm already an adult. Suffice to say, what i dealt is adult acne. I'm not a pro but i know that there's a difference between young skin to developed skin already.

So, i keep on repeating again & again that what works for me might not work for you. Use products at your own discretion.

2. Ok, i've been warned, but what products worked for you?
-I will proudly say that Orange Peel & L-Glutathione Soap was the best among the lot of soaps that i have tried so far. My pictures can justify this.

I've been acne-free ever since & have been loyal to it ever since. I have tried other soaps for a while but i keep coming back to this just because it works so well on my skin.

I have been using that until i tested out Hortaleza MD Illuminous Soap for a month & i'm quite happy with the result that i achieved with it.

So for now, i will say that these 2 soaps are the ones that had worked for me. I have just newly used the illuminous soap but i have been using the orange peel soap for years already. I can vouch for the orange peel soap though i will admit that

3. How about skin lightening soaps? What do you recommend?
-I have tried lots of skin lightening products not really because i wanna bleach my skin or go 10 shades lighter than my natural skintone but i wanted to get rid of the dark spots/blemishes during the time that i had my acne.
Kojie-san has been the most popular post that i ever wrote. i would have to say that kojie-san has been the soap that lightened my skin the fastest compare to others.

4. Have you tried going to facial clinics to try any facial procedure to address your acne?
-No, i haven't & i probably won't.

5. Do you use any creams/serums/essences as a part of your skincare routine during your acne days?
-I did use some but nothing that really made a difference. Again, on my post about "how i broke the breakout cycle", i pointed out that piling on products just makes my acne worse. I am still sticking with that. I try not to put on anything on my face if i can get away with it.

I know that most people will just say that i have to slather on moisturizers or whatever because it is the SOP but i don't care. I am listening to what my skin says & if it says that it hates this or that, then i don't use it.

If there is anything that you think that i haven't answered yet, then feel free to email me or leave a message on my Facebook page & i'll back to you asap~

Thanks for visiting & supporting my blog!
Jaa ne~!
