Soothing My Face with Tea Tree, Calamine, Chamomile and Snail Products - My Skin Clearing Routine

 
So some of you who may have read my posts about my derma visits and that close up fire freeze and my shu uemura breakouts are prolly wondering, now what?  so in a short span of time i got spots around my mouth and lower half of my cheeks.  and that derma didn't really squeeze out too much so i had to do the rest the next day and below is my almost pockmarked face.
so i had to run to the face shop, since anyway the tea tree stuff from the competition, EH, didn't work out on my skin too much.  i've tried this tea tree thing from the face shop way back when it was still green, when it was still quick and clean.  this is 15ml for about PhP395 o.0
after i remove my makeup with my makeup removers, i brush my teeth THEN I wash my mouth area with the lush soap that contains calamine and chamomile.
i proceed with the face shop's spot corrector, applying it only on the zits or wounds left behind.  wow, this thing stings.  ang hapdi on open wounds, bonga.

and it's an almost opaque gel like substance

once the gel stuff dries, i then apply my snail cream.  twice a week, i apply the sleeping pack that comes along with this missha set.
then about once or twice a week, i put on this thing
then 3-4 days after that derma diamond peel with pricking thing the wounds began to close.
and tonight, about 2 weeks later, the dried up wounds that were pink are almost gone and have turned a bit gray. these can easily be hidden with a good concealer.  AND NO BIG HOLES. they just went back to their previous pore size.
yuh, seems toxic.  but for now i'm skipping the serum, essence, moisturizer blah blah.  i have oily combo skin and since i've been using snail stuff, i'd only use moisturizers when we'd keep the a/c on or when i was in HK in December.
this routine has been working out for me so far. i'm not promising that this routine will prevent pimples.  clearly, i still get them regardless of reason, (though i keep getting them around the mouth so yey i guess that it's just around the mouth).
i'm hoping this post could be meaningful to some of you.  nope, i don't have perfect skin.  i merely have great stuff that clears up my skin once i do get my zits and i have a wonderful concealer, that up to THIS DAY, good grief is still half way done.

got the spot corrector from TFS this weekend; got rid of the huge pimple on my cheek, but left behind some redness. this is caused by the tea tree oil, yes? :) Easily covered it up with Etude House's Magic BB Cream, though :D 

LBC said...

oh, and i really like the scent of the spot corrector, hahaha. usually, when I buy acne creams, they either smell like pure medicine or bleach :p

hi Lisa:
yeh, essentially tea tree oil is a anti biotic agent, so it's killing you, too! bwahahaha :P naaah, the redness is just your body healing you.
magic bb cream, hehehe does it pull a rabbit out of a hat? :P my korean hair dresser called my perm magic perm instead of the usual digiperm, so i was half expecting to get sawed in half! LOL i guess it's better than digital perm, because i do not see 0's and 1's while curling my hair :P

Hi Marge! I'm Cathy, I love reading your posts 'cause I'm also a kikay girl but I find it hard to find a perfect BB cream and spot removal cream for my acne scars. I have an oily skin, few acne scars and visible pores. What product can you recommend to overcome my problem? :)

Marge said...

hahaha the perfect bb cream, i think i found it with the laneige snow bb.
less expensive alternatives are:
the precious minerals from etude house
the expert triple from tony moly
the peach sake from skin food - winner for oily skinned ladies like you and me
and the hd bb from the face shop ♥
hope this helps

Marge said...
