1 Month

So it has been a month. I have been really busy and stressed with family and work hence the lack of updates. Current Condition Some nodules have popped up. Skin is dry on jawline. PIH is pretty bad at this point It is almost the time of the months for me that could be one of the reasons. I also have skipped some applications. Basically, I have slacked. I am a little worried that I will not follow through. I am still trying to get as much veggies as possible in although it has

Day 19 - Probiotics, Day 24- Bp & Neem, Day 19 Fruit Smoothie

Day 17 - Probiotics, Day 22- Bp & Neem, Day 17 Fruit Smoothie

Diet/ Holistic Probiotics as usual. No fruit or smoothie this morning. I'm worried because I seem to be slacking off on this. What's more is I will probably go to office earlier from now on. I need to figure out a plan! I am trying to compensate with veggies but not doing well on that either. Face Face flaking a lot on my jawline. Overall skin feels tight especailly after regimen in the morning. Not so much at night for some reason. I have decided to put on moisturiser twice at night to

Day 15 - Probiotics, Day 20- Bp & Neem, Day 15 Fruit Smoothie

Diet/ Holistic Probiotics as usual. No smoothie as I had terrible sleep and slept in. BM hasn't been great. I think I slacked on water intake over the weekend like I usually do. I also got less fiber in fruits and veggies over the weekend. Face Face is the same still flaking slightly on jawline and chin. T-zone is very oily. I am now wondering if tis the moisturizer that's clogging my pores? Or the sunscreen? but its pretty bad. Now Im not sure if I should continue using them and see ho

Day 14 - Probiotics, Day 19- Bp & Neem, Day 14 Fruit Smoothie

Diet/ Holistic Probiotics as usual. No smoothie. Diet wise have been slipping. Had a little milk on thursday, over the weekend, had junk food, really salty food, sugared drinks, soy based foods. I did try to take a glass of fiber drink only got through a third of it though. Its disgusting! Face Still flaking slightly on jawline and chin. T-zone is very oily. I'm going easy on the moisturiser on that area. I noticed really bad clogged pores on my Tzone and cheeks. I've never had it so ba

Day 12 - Probiotics, Day 17- Bp & Neem, Day 12 Fruit Smoothie

Diet/ Holistic Probiotics as usual. Had a papaya, watermelon and cucumber smoothie. Did not have any veggies for dinner Went for dinner with my dad. Was not sleepy in the afternoon yesterday! Increasing water intake is going well. I am also reducing white rice and processed carbs like noodles. I usually have rice at least once a day so I am cutting it down to less and increasing veggies.

Diet/ Holistic Probiotics as usual. Had a papaya, watermelon and cucumber smoothie. Had a lot of veggies yesterday! Was a little sleepy in the afternoon yesterday. But not as much as I used to. Next thing to work on is water intake. Face Still flaking on jawline and chin. Face seems a little more red than usual. But maybe its because I did not use sunscreen today because I was in a hurry? I think the sunscreen helps to cover up a bit of the redness anyways. Have a few pustules today on

Day 10 - Probiotics, Day 15 - Bp & Neem, Day 9 Fruit Smoothie

Diet/ Holistic Probiotics as usual. Had a papaya, banana and cucumber smoothie. Did not have as much veggies as I wanted to yesterday as I had an unplanned dinner with my brother and his girlfriend and wasn't too healthy food. I also only had one serving of veggies for lunch. I noticed I have BM at least once a day now which is great as I used to not have it everyday. For the first time yesterday I did not feel sleepy in the afternoon. Maybe I am doing something right? or maybe it was jus

Day 9 - Probiotics, Day 14 - Bp & Neem, Day 8 Fruit Smoothie

Diet/ Holistic Probiotics as usual. Had a papaya, banana and cucumber smoothie. I cut off the cucumber skin this time as I found it to be too fibrous for my liking. I am probably cutting out half the fiber from the drink but oh well. I am having a bun which has cream in it this morning. I don't know how my skin will react to the dairy. I am not intentially cutting dairy completely. I am just avoiding milk and being more aware of other products containing dairy. I am consciously trying to

Day 8 - Probiotics, Day 13 - Bp & Neem, Day 7 Fruit Smoothie

Diet/ Holistic Cut down the probiotics to one per day before breakfast. As per the directions. Had a papaya and cucumber smoothie added some apple juice to it as it was very bland. It kind of coagulated a little after 2 hours. Not very pleasant to drink. The papaya isn't very ripe as I put it in the fridge before it was time. Face Did not have enough sleep and I was extremely distressed last night. Hope it won't affect my skin too much. Feeling slightly better today. Skin is dry bet

Day 7 - Probiotics, Day 12 - Bp & Neem, Day 6 Fruit Smoothie

Diet/ Holistic Did not have my fruit smoothie as I was in a rush. Have decided to put the fiber on a hold before I decide what to do/find an alternative. Face Skin is breaking out as I said, even my back and chest is breaking out like one or two. I think it could be due to stress as I am pretty stressed about my job situation. I have not been getting enough sleep either. Have slight itching on areas where I break out Last Night Cleanse BP AHA Moisturize This Mornin

Diet/Holistic I forgot to take the probiotics before breakfast today. I had them after. Have not had my fruit smoothie yet as I am out of fruits. I only have bananas.

Day 4 - Probiotics, Day 9 - Bp & Neem, Day 3 Fruit Smoothie , Day 2 - Fiber

Diet/Holistic DId not take the fiber drink today as I only plan to take it every other day. In terms of BM, twice yesterday. Which is more than usual for me but we will see how it goes for the following days. Had a banana and watermelon smoothie for breakfast. Had another watermelon and mandarin orange smoothie before lunch as well. I have been making an effort to avoid milk. Not dairy in its entirety just milk. I do have dairy in terms of cheese although pretty rarely and also occa

Day 3 - Probiotics, Day 8 - Bp & Neem, Day 2 Fruit Smoothie , Day 1 - Fiber

Diet/Holistic Tried the fiber drink by adding it to my smoothie. Found it to be very hard to comsume as it would thicken up as I was drinking it and it was very sweet which tasted very artificial. Might not continue with this or try just using half a pack to see how it goes tomorrow. If all else fails, I will try my best to get fiber pills. Had a banana, watermelon and mandarin orange smoothie for breakfast and one after lunch as well. Thinking twice a day might be a bit much. Great to g

History With Acne

History Acne started at 9. Wasn't too concerned about it then. I am not sure why but didn't seem like a big deal then. Regret it now. I also have some back acne mostly I have a few at a time but can be pretty big. For me it is hereditary to some point. My dad and brother had bad acne. All of us have ice pick scarring as well from it. My brother pretty much cleared up when he hit his late teens to 20s. It is also hormonal for me I believe as my hormones aren't really balanced. I have h
