15th day

Yes, I've been 1 whole week NO new acne. Yes, the Neutrogena® Deep Clean cleanser, the Neutrogena® pore refining essence, Neutrogena® combination skin moisture and Neutrogena® raidance essence really do GREAT jobs. They works so well in together and my skin is CLEAR now...well the brown spots, and as well red spots have begun to fade a way. I have been using them for 1 week only and they already gave me great result. I dunno after 1 month, maybe I'll have a NORMAL skin again. The Neutrogena® pore refining also claimed that it'll help to smaller your pores' size, I did, noticed the progress because I rarely can't see my pores when I sticked my face near the mirror.

ADIOS...Neutrogena® really did good work and I'll gonna send my compliment to them.

Good days for all,

cheers,

16th day..

Got an acne on my jawline due to over stroke in order to shave. O...it just let me felt extremely ugly for that. YUCKs.. Grandpa is having his 80th birthday today, i was so embarrassed to attend to his birthday party, bcause almost all my relatives will go at that time. They will then end up asking...' hey , garkee, haven't see you for such a long time and now, why u got so many acne on your face, did you wash your face, did you sleep early at night, surely you end spicy food, right? '..god..they will bother me around..although they seems to be very concern about me, but ...just leave me alone. I think I'm not gona attend the party~...

Just one acne today...nevermind..

cheers,

17th day..

Okie...17th day now. Just a small whitehead near my lip. I wonder why I could get that.Maybe that's the result I exposed myself under the sun for a long period.

I have trimmed my hair in order to make it neatly and shorter. As I know that long hair will aggravate acne physically. As when you applied mousse or gel on your hair, then when you sweat, the hair product will follow the sweat and got on your skin, then you'll end up with zits.

Gaz has gone to other place, miss him so much....

I' m having exam very soon...so maybe I'll have less time to update my newest progress.So, I hope you all will heal faster..okie?

18th day

Okie..18th day. I think I'll gonna post up only once a week as I don't have time to surf for longtime. ERm..today, now new acne , but the small whitehead on my chin didn;t dissapear yet. I wonder why, I think I gonna apply salicylic acid on it~..

Those from Asia-pasific countries friends with questions about acne can reach me through my e-mail [email protected]. It would be easier for me to reply you all because although I wouldn't be posting up my progress everyday, I will check my mailbox daily. So, I can reply you all faster. Anyway, I really don't know that whether my knowledge about acne is able to assist you or not.

Hopefully I can~...

god bless you all,

cheers,

19th day

Okie..my skin is still clear, but will occasionaly have whitehead on my chin. I think this is either caused by shaving irritation or my toothpaste.

But nevermind, discolouration is still my major problem now. I've been using neutrogena® pore refining essence to even my skin tone and it claimed that it will show a significant improvement in 4 weeks time. So, I was off for 2 weeks now, hopefully what it said will become reality.

I was so sad about the tragedy of Moscow, Russia. 10 hostages have been executed . Why are these people killing innocent people for their own benefits? such a bad and stupid act~

god bless you all,

20th day

Initially, allow me to thank nappyjim for his/her compliment. Yup, Garkee is 20 years old.

This is the 20th day of my regimen.Well, that's means I'm 20days already on this regimen. I'm 98%clear nowSome occasional small breakout wouldn't make me too upset.

My school is having a singing competition today. I didn't participate ( i did last year ), because I afraid I wouldn't be making into the final stage. Anyway, I met my ex-girlfriend today. She's beautiful, and her hair is mid-long now. I like to watch her, especially the way she smiles, she looks at you and her laughter. She's was so so so sweet. She didn't realise I was watching at her, from a higher position. She's really a good and decent girl and I really hope and bless her that she could has a really good boyfriend in the future.

Aiks.....Life still going on. I was invited today by my good friend ( she's a music producer, arranger and composer ) to attend a music award ceremony. Many artists such as Coco Lee, Lee-Hom and so on will attend, but I think I wouldn't go...I afraid those artist will ask me why my skin looks awful compared to them~..

Okie..will update soon..

God bless you all,

cheers,

21th day

I have a blackhead on my temple today. Too bad but I'll just ignore it's existance. I think the blackhead is the result of me, using too many heavy product to help me to fade discolouration. Sometimes, although those products stated non-comedogenic, lightweight and oil-free, they will cause acne if not used appropriatly. It's so hot in Malaysia and the temperature is 33'Celsius degree during the day and 30 at night. So, mostly we sweat so much and when our pores can't breathe, it will let the anaerobic P.acne to have more chances to form acne.

A friend of mine called me last night. That was a very very old friend of mine, I say OLD didn't mean his age is 80+++ but, we knew each other since kids and then his family transfered to other state to continue their life. We chatted a lot through cell phone until my credit was off.haha, he told me so much about his life, including his girlfriend and etc. Wow, I was shocked after I knew his girlfriend name because I know she.

Okie...got to go now..having my final exam very soon.Will keep on updating..

22th day

Phew... Recently, I think 2 weeks ago, I changed my regimen by using the neutrogena® deep clean cleanser. The cleanser worked so well that I didn't have acne anymore. However, my skin started to peel off and flakes started to come off my face. The feeling is so horrible that it might make you think that your skin is tearing off apart. So, what did I consider to do? I think i gonna change my current cleanser back into the clean&clear® foaming facial wash as I like this cleanser so much because it doesn't only get rid off dirt, impurities, oils and also have a decent smell . I like the fragrance so much because it just like a floral smell.Haha :wink:

I'm on my exam now. Today, I'm taking my physic's paper one, the objective part and I would I could really pass in my exam( I'm a DAMN lazy guy ). Recently, my major problem is still the red marks , I could say scars, they were so reddish when I looked in to the mirror...makes me feel so ugly.

Okie...got to go now...will keep on update...soon.

god bless you all,

cheers,

garkee2002 :wink:

23th day

Okie...the 23th day. So far so good, my skin is still clear after I have used the Clean&Clear foaming facial wash. I really like this cleanser because i could feel it cleanse so deeply into my skin which it helps me to get rid of impurities, oils and dirts. In addition, it has a decent floral fragrance. One word to describe it - BRAVO good.

I'm having my brand new regimen now.

Morning - Cleanse face with Clean&Clear® foaming facial wash

I didn't apply any skin products to my skin during the day.

Evening - Cleanse face with Clean&Clear foaming facial wash. Then,

continue with Clean&Clear oil-free dual moisturizer.

The Clean&Clear foaming facial wash contains 2.5% of triclosan which it claims will help to kill P.acnes and I believe it done a great job because I don't have red bump after I used it. Initially, my skin felt a bit itchy after using the facial wash but it's normal according to the facts about usage of triclosan in laurushealth.com. This products really did a good job and I would give great credits to them.

The Clean&Clear oil-free dual moisturizer contains 0.5% Salicylic acid which will help to disclog pores. It will also help in minimizing your pores' size when using it for 2weeks. Although mostly any products that contain BHA ( salicylic acid ) will causes dryness, this product didn't. It did a great job for treating acne by dissolving clogged pores while moisturized your skin. Yup...Clean&Clear® did a good job.

OKie...I'm having my General paper today. I didn't finish all of the questions because I'm lack of time. That's quite bad...it will make me lose marks.ARghhhhh.....

Will keep on updating. Hopefully Fatima will have great skin in these few days.. :wink:

Wow, it has been a long long period since fatman left his word on my postup. Thank you for your TEASE about my lousy ENGLISH..keke..

See...I have already said that all Dove® products contains WAX and they will just cause you further breakout as they left a thin film on your skin. Well, advertisement of the Dove® company claimed that ' Our product is neutral in pH, and wouldn't strip off your skin's own moisturizer'..yup, that are right, but they just left some words behind, and let me add it for them...' we also leave a thin film on your skin that will help to moisturize your skin'...Okie...film ..film....that's residue and will cause ACNE ACNE ACNE.

Okie...got to go now..really busy today...anyway...thanks again fatman for still looking on my postup...( I thought he forget me already for a long time ! :roll: )

cheers,

24th day

Okie..Initially, I have to thank fatman for leaving me message.Again, thank you.

My skin is Okie today. The Clean&Clear® oil-free dual moisturizer is indeed a decent moisturizer as it left my skin smooth and soft. I like it so so much. I have changed my hair shampoo from Dove® moisture shampoo into the Kao® Feather Chamomile shampoo and it's conditioner. The shampoo is so mild that I can used as frequently as I want.

I have read articles about amount of skin cleansing per day is 2 and cannot exceed 3 times per day. However, I think this depends to several facts. They should figure about what is the job the person is doing, what is the temperature of the place, and how frequently the person sweats. Although those dermatologists claimed that over-washing skin will aggravate acne, but in my opinion, if you sweated lot and just left your skin wet all day long, then you will get acne.....Some person stayed in places that is more hotter, especially desert....wow....they will need to cleanse their skin more times compared to those who live in colder place such as european country.

Okie...got to go now...I still have to revise my physics, if not, surely I'll fail ... :)

cheers,

25th day

I was so depressed today when I looked myself from the mirror. My face is scarred so well and it's really make me like an ugly monster.Although my acne has cleared, I would sometimes get occasional breakout especially after the shave worked has been done. I know that I have very sensitive skin and sometimes benzoyl peroxide would aggravate my fragiled skin and made my acne took more times to heal. Well...sad today.I think I really gonna visit to the beauty saloon this december after my exam so that they could help me to get rid of scars either by using microdermabasion or mixed fruits acid peel. I still remember they claimed that they were specialised in scars healing the first time I walked inside the saloon.

I have my physic paper 2 today. It's a subjectic and essay paper. We were wanted to finish them in 2 1/2 hours. I really dunno whether the answer I submitted is correct or not. I can't managed to finish my studies..and now I have to pay for that ..the consequences...haah. :roll:

Okie...got to go now...cheers all...( can I cheers too :? ? )

26th day

My skin is still okie till now. The reddish scars are still the major problem for me. I'm currently using a glycolic acid toner to exfoliate dead skin cell after the cleansing work has been done. Actually, I realised that no matter what kind of cleanser you are using, after you sweeped the glycolic acid that you applied on a cotton to your skin, you will realise that there were still dirts and dead skin cells that had not been removed totally from your skin. Well....nightmare!

I still remember that I have used many brand of facial cleanser from the most expensive dermalogica cleanser to the cheapest dove® beauty bar. These facial cleanser did NOT really remove ALL the traces of oils, dirts and impurities from your skin. Honestly...maybe you feel that I was wrong because your skin feel so smooth and soft when you touched it after the cleansing work. Wow...the smooth...actually...maybe caused by a thin residue that is left on your skin. Many cleanser especially those who owned the SLS ( sodium laureth sulphate or sodium lauryl sulphate ) will actually leave thin film on your skin. Hence, in my opinion, glycol propylene can also leave thin film on your skin.

Okie...enough for these NONSENSE... :wink:

cheers,

garkee2002.. :roll: ( anyone who disagree with me..please let me know! cos maybe I was wrong..right? )

Okie..okie...I'll send short message to him as my mailbox is cancelled due to overloaded. Well, Neutrogena® facial bar..according to my information, if I'm not wrong, the first ingredient in the facial bar is glycerin, right? Well..well, glycerin is a part of glycerol, means oil..but I know that if it';s in a lower quantity , then it will benefit your skin as glycerin would be able to preserve your skin moisture if the temperature begin to change. Hydrolunic acid ( I dunno i spell it correct or not ) is a part of amino acid and is the best skin moisture that wouldn't change due to temperature.

Well, whether Glycerin is oil or not, it ISN'T comedogenic or irritant AT ALL, accordin to Zerozits list. :wink:

So i guess all it'll do, like u say, is help with moisture control during climate changes. It's an all round great bar i think. :)

27th day

My skin is fine today. Smooth and soft but still get some small small bump after my shave on my moustache. Well, I think I need to shave very gently and carefully as usually, I want fast, so I shaved faster.... :roll:

I'm still studying chinese, eastern medicine book about the cause of acne and how they get rid of that.My discovery is usually in eastern way, they tend to solve this problem internally by consuming some chinese herbs that wouldn't bring side effect compard to accutane. However, it might take a longer period to see the effect too.

Acne, in eastern, they claimed that it is caused by internal heat in human body. Then, when the heat will make the circulation of your blood to be hotter..( i'm a pretty bad interpreneur ), then you get acne due to the internal heat and toxic in your body. The way to get rid of it is to cleanse or detoxicfy you body, then you wouldn't get acne anymore. Herbs such as ginseng, dong guai, jinyin hua are decent for lower the heat of the body. pH of our blood also constibute to acne, according to the eastern medicine book, so by consuming more alkaline food such as vegetables, fruits would help to decrease the risk of having not only acne but also cancer, diabetes and etc.

okie...I dunno whether you really understand or comprehend what the hell of i'm talking of...( i admit, I'm a pretty bad interpreneur ) :roll:
