first off, i'd like to say thank you to all the warm and sweet comments you gave me on my previous post. i really appreciate all of you showing your concern and even lending a listening ear. :D not that my concern has totally went away, but im really feeling a lot better today. im trying to stay positive and just thinking that eventually things will fall into place. cliche as it may sound, i want to believe that things happen for a reason.
anyway, back to regular programming.. today, i went to a kid's party. since i've been feeling crappy, i forgot to take pictures of the event. booh me! and yeah, i wasn't in the mood to really dress up all nice and kid-party-appropriate (i have my period and it sucks!!!) hence this oh so lazy outfit..
oh.. speaking of getting your period (hahaha, i know i have no shame!), what normally are your symptoms or signals that tell you that you're getting it soon? i ask this because, i now know why i have been getting the worse breakouts lately. aside from me not feeling good, i just got my period. so with hormones & my oily skin, i get insane acne. i have been trying to counter the breakouts with my skin regime, which is nothing fancy. im trying out cetaphil cleanser plus the olay moisturizer.
i really love cetaphil! it really makes my skin soft and after using it i always feel like my skin can "breath more". it doesn't have any harsh chemicals in it so i can definitely use it twice a day. what i usually do is just wash my face with a bit of water, get one pump of the cleanser, apply it thoroughly in my face, rinse it off and gently pat (not rub or wipe) my face with my towel to dry.
this got rid of my skin flakes beneath the eyes and cheeks while, i occasionally still get some in my nose. with the harsh winter here, my face gets really dry and this was a good affordable solution to that. unfortunately it doesn't have spf so it might not be as advisable for tropical weather. but i really love that it's light and you just need a pinch or so to cover your face. i use it before i apply any make-up.
what's your skin regime?
i want to know what works out there in the market.
