One thing that I’ve realized in the past few months is that well, I’ve been treating my dermatologist like…a shrink ( hahaha! ). I’d be amused when I watch scenes in movies when the leads rant about their lives to their psychiatrist.
Well, it seems that I’ve been doing that to my dermatologist. I’ve been rambling for over half an hour on how breakouts affect my self esteem, and how my skin purging ruined my Holidays. Yes, Holiday stress was just insane, I swear I’m going to get enough sleep from now on and never overwork. ( Well, just a little, okay! ).
So after she listens to my ramblings she reminds me to visit her at least once a month for maintenance to ensure proper cell renewal via diamond peeling and cleaning, too. The medicine she prescribed me also helped tremendously dry up the problem areas. ( backtrack : my skin broke out last December ).
Anyway, let me share my latest discovery to you girls! Last December, I was asking if she had any idea on how to treat backne ( back acne ) since I get these once in a while, when I’m really, really stressed. She pulled out a tall bottle, and asked me to apply it on my back every day after I take a bath, using a cotton ball. Well, it was worth a try, considering I’ve tried alot of anti-backne products out there.
Okay, so here goes. The consistency of the acne lotion’s liquid, when mixed well, is a peach-colored solution. I generously spread on the affected areas and wish me goodluck. Lo and behold, just a few days and the backne’s dried up, no more inflammation! Yay!
I was able to ask my dermatologist about the product and the active ingredient was Zinc-Resocinol. After the backne’s dried, the only thing left to do is let it gradually fade, or exfoliate the body at least once a week to make them go away. My dermatologist also says it’s safe to use on the face as long as the face isn’t sensitive.
So, for those who want to try their luck with this product, just ask your local dermatologist about this. It’s actually pretty good. 500 bucks ( about $10-$12 ) worth of this is actually gonna last me a long time, and talk about effective!
