Finally, after months of denial that I don’t need a dermatologist because I’ve consulted not so good dermatologists in the past who didn’t even know what milia meant, I went to see a new dermatologist. My Nu Skin regimen is on hold for the moment because I noticed that my skin becomes easily immuned to skin care products – meaning the products work amazingly for a month, then my skin goes back to its normal , problematic state as the effect wanes after a month or so. With that, I really needed professional help.
Well, I told my dermatologist about my problem having open pores, and dirt easily getting in my skin. Eew. The dermatologist asked me if I slept late, ate fruits and vegetables, those sort of questions. I admitted that I had a really bad sleeping habit, and I eat fruits and vegetables! She tried to negotiate an earlier sleeping schedule for me and I told her I’d try ( too much work! Darn..) We proceeded with the facial afterwards. After painful pricks that I’ve gotten from her, I didn’t want to see my face for the day because I know I’d look hideous! Sigh, while waiting for these wounds to heal, I’d just sleep and forget about it. Haha! Ugly today, beautiful tomorrow! That’s the spirit!
Anyways, she made me try this European skin care brand called Ziiit. She told me it was a European brand, but it’s made in Thailand. Doesn’t the brand name resemble the slang for blemishes/pimples, “zit”? Haha! She made me purchase this starter set for problem skin that includes a soap-free cleanser ( Wash ), an alcohol free toner ( Balance ), a spot treatment gel ( Away ), a whitening cream for post-pimple marks ( White ), and a sunblock cream ( In the Sun )
Anyway, I’ve read in another blog, after an afternoon’s worth of google searches that this product worked for her! It also happened that we had the same dermatologist! Coolness!
I was also made to try a Clindamycin solution for my blemishes. I didn’t really have tons of them, but now she pricked my bumps, there ya go! I have tons now! Haha! Clindamycin reminds me of VMV’s Clindamycin solution that I’ve tried years ago. It was really effective.
I’d post a review on my Ziiit experience a few weeks from now! Wish me luck!
