Ematrix was a great solution to get rid of Acne Scars. But how do I get rid of Acne?

 Sorry that this picture is a bit eww, but so is my skin right now. Maybe Im not meant to live in this sunny Singaporean tropical climate and it should move somewhere cold and dry, far away!
 What is the deal with adult acne, seriously? I eat well, sleep well, drink plenty of water and take lots of vitamins. Still, I often get acne breakouts, and I really hate it because there’s really no quick fix for skin. I’ve done wonderful eMatrix treatments to get rid of most of my old acne scars (see previous blogposts on my eMatrix Treatments with Beauti5 Me), but efforts always seem wasted when acne comes back to disrupt all over again.

Maybe my frantic travelling, recent thick on set makeup during filming and the harsh sun in Philippines has harmed my face? I desperately need to tame this ridiculous zit monster!
 I was actually sitting at a cafe the other day going through a list of skin doctors recommended on online forums that I wanted to see at Orchard Road, when I got an email at the same time asking me if I wanted to try Benzac for my skin, for 5 days! Perfect timing! Yes, give it to me!!!

 Yesterday was my first day using Benzac facial cleanser (twice daily), Benzac Facial scrub (1-2 times a week), and Benzac AC Gel treatment (twice daily). Bring on Day 1 of the 5 day Benzac Blogger Challenge. I’ve tried other products for more than a week and nothing has helped yet. I hope these above products can heal the acne and the ugly.

 I will update on skin progress next week…
 My acne is so bad right now, even Justin Bieber looks better than me without makeup! 😦

Wish me luck. 🙂

  1. I had the same problem before. I’ve tried a lot of products and still won’t work so I went to a dermatologist and voila after a couple of months my acne dissappeared. However it came back when I moved to Norway (I’m from the Philippines btw). I thought the dry and cold weather would help but it didn’t. What helped me was lifestyle change. In addition to the vitamins, I make sure that I eat healthy. I drink smoothie with berries almost everyday and I avoided oily food. And it worked! (I’m not saying that you should stop eating fastfood but minimize it) ALso, moisturizing the skin is really important. I use Clinique moisturizer everyday. Well just sharing my experience. 🙂 Good luck with your acne treatment.

  2. I chanced upon your blog when googling laser treatments for acne and saw your earlier Ematrix posts. I feel your pain. I have been religiously taking care of my skin after some breakouts last year, and it was working well. But a recent change of skin care products and sleep deprivation resulted in my acne coming back and my efforts instantly went down the drain. (Thank god for concealers though)
    Anyway a good dermatologist is Dr Loke at Loke Skin Clinic. I’ve been to him a few years back to treat the acne on my back and his treatment worked for me.
