Morning regime

1. Wash your face with a gentle cleanser. Pat dry with towel. Don’t rub your skin like its some rough tree.  Not all the cleanser here suits everyone.  Some said the Avene Cleanance and the himalaya doesn't suit so check first.

a) (Cetaphil for oily skin cleanser) RM48

b) Cetaphil Gentle skin cleanser RM27

c) Himalaya Purifying gel cleanser RM20.

d) Avene Cleanance RM 50.

e) Akin sandalwood&neroli pure facial cleansing gel

2. Make sure your skin is dry before putting a THIN pimples gel on the pimples (pea size). I use:

a) T3 Mycin Clindamcycin Gel 1% M20. Stop using this if you got diarrhea as it may indicate you are allergic to it. Clindamcycin is a type of ANTIBIOTIC so not everyone can tolerate it.

b) If you want, you can use benzoyl peroxide by Galderma (RM14) IF you are using Clindamcycin. After 3minutes or when the Clindamcycin dried up, put a THIN layer over the acne area to dry the pimples up faster and so that the bacteria won’t build resistance. Some are allergic to benzoyl so check first before using.  I can;t use benzoyl.

c) T3 oil. It is actually strong for some skin and it can lead to more pimples popping up. It doesn’t work for me but some said it is very good.

d) Nixoderm(RM4)- It contains benzoic acid, sulfur and salicylic acid. It is cheap but the smell is quite offensive and it leaves a white residue. However I find it very drying to my skin.

3. Wait about 30minutes later if you want to moisturizer your skin. Only put a thin layer of oil free and non comedogenic moisturizer as thick moisturizer can CLOG your pores.

4. Put a THIN Layer of Sunblock on your face. Don’t rub or massage it into your face! It’s not mask. Try Cetaphil moisturizer with SPF. I am using LA ROCHE POSAY ANTHELIOS 60.

You can wear makeup if you want too. Just make sure it is oil free and non comedogenic as well as hygienic brushes. You can use BB cream if your skin is not that oily but it’s best not to use any make up for the time being.

Night regime

1. Pour more than RM 0.20 (2cm diameter) makeup remover to the facial cotton and swipe it over the face to remove make-up and sunblock.  You can actually pour more than that but since I am stingy sticking to 2cm(diameter) is just enough . XP

a) Avene non rinse makeup remover (RM80). When using non- rinse formula, don’t wash your immediately after cleaning off the make-up. Wait for about 5min.

b) Bioderma Cleansing gel

d) CetaphilGentle skin cleanser

2. Then clean your face thoroughly with your choice of facial wash.

3.  Make sure your skin is DRY before applying a THIN layer of Differin 0.1% all over the face (NOT MORE than PEA size.

DON’T SPOT TREAT(means don't just put on the place where got pimples). Use it on alternate night if you find it drying your face.

* Differin is not a drying agent or antibiotic. So, it would not cure your acne condition if use alone. However, I use it to keep the pores clean and bring out all those underground pimples. However, your face will appear worse the first few weeks. Keep on using and you can see the results around 6-12 weeks. DO NOT USE DIFFERIN IF PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING

4, You can use moisturizer without SPF but only after 1 hours of applying Differin on the place that u find very dry. Apply a pea size.

5. NO sleeping mask or any sort of mask.

6.  NO whitening products.

Extra Steps

1. Drink lots of warm green tea (buy the ones with leaves imported from JAPAN).

2.  The one in bags don’t work. Cold green tea won’t work. I had tried many types of green tea and still find the one from Japan work best to reduce the toxic from the body. Twice in a week is enough or you can have it once a day if you are hardworking. Don’t put too much as it will be very bitter.

3.  Don’t use facial blotter. Use tissue paper to just pat on the oily area.

4.  Even when your face is already clear, continue the regime for one or two more week and you will still need to retain the same facial wash and moisturizer.

5.  DO NOT keep trying other products if you have the one suitable for your skin.

6.  Lessen sugar in your food. Go for fruits instead of sweets.

7.  Drink one cup of lemon juice every morning before breakfast.

8.  Avoid peanuts  and peanut butter.  They contain so much of thing that will feed the acne.

9.  I use aspirin mask to get rid of acne on time when I don't use differin.  Don't use differin with aspirin mask together.

However, if you have severe acne, it is better to see dermatologist. Some skin doctor are not charging expensively.  At least they will be able to find your skin type and prescribe suitable products for your skin.   Do not try to eat all sorts of hormone, pills or collagen to control your own acne.
