TIPS: SECRET TO FLAWLESS SKIN?




Do you notice that there are many advertisements promoting flawless skin that sound more like "mission impossible"? Well, no doubt that there are few people who just have flawless skin with very simple routine like using plain water to wash the face but majority of us are not blessed with such skin especially once we hit puberty. I really dislike bursting everyone’s bubbles that some of these advertisements are photoshopped or edited to look flawless.  Even some certain claims by some are actually not true but I can't mention it here because I am sure going to get sued or might not live until tomorrow.


So, here I am sharing some of these secret of flawless skin.


1. Really strict diet
   I guess this is a no brainer.  Well, one can eat everything but there is a need for a balanced diet.  A smooth skin usually consist of a lot of vegetables and fruits.  There is very little processed sugar in food as sugar that is well known for clogging the pores and cause the loss of collagen making a person look old.
Of course eating a ice cream once in a month is not going to hurt your face but eating it everyday will sure do.  Even if you do not get diabetes from it, your complexion is sure going to hurt and you will look older.

Of course don't make it that you will only eat vegetables and fruits which is really crazy because we are not herbivores and therefore we do need protein in our life.  I mean a balanced diet is good for the face in a long run but try not to be extreme.

A healthy complexion is also a sign that one do eat a balanced meal so if you are unsure what is a balanced meal, do check the food pyramid.  Don't just eat vegetables with rice because it won't get you look 10 years younger.

Just eating certain supplement will make you look 10 years younger?  DO you certainly believe that kind of bullshit?  Please do check if the REAL person do look like that all the time and if it is not,  the photo certainly edited.  There is not a single product that can actually make you look 10 years younger if you eat it for only 2weeks!  If there is, why is there is a need for Botox??

It is a supplement and one should also still have good balanced diet to maintain your looks.  Maintaining the looks is not easy and certainly not a one day MAGIC.  If there is, do let me know because I am sure interested in this.




2. Good genes
Well, if you have genes that makes your skin as smooth as it is .  We start with a good skin until puberty creates havoc in our hormones.  Well, if you have good skin that is not affected by the imbalance of hormone, then it is one of the reason your skin is good even even with just water.  As we age, our skin get clogged up but it will won't happen until we hit puberty.

The rest of us commoner with no good genes will have to just find ways to just tone down the skin from break outs and can only dream of flawless skin.  I understand this because I do not have good  flawless skin' genes in me and I always envy my friends who does not need to even use anything at all. Do you believe it when she said she doesn't even remember if she washed her face but have flawless skin?



3. A good dermatologist
Well, a GOOD dermatologist does make a differences in your skin.  It doesn't have to be a real expensive one but the price is not on the consultation but the products and medicine that comes with it.  So, do a lot of research before going to any dermatologist.  Not every dermatologist is the same.  Some are good and some just want your money.

It would be more expensive if you are going for procedure such as laser, fillers and peels. Generally, one would need to visit the dermatologist a few times before you can actually see results and of course nothing is miracle.  Well if all the Korean celebrities owe their beautiful skin to their dermatologist, so you can also save up for it.  Of course, beauty comes with a price.

In Malaysia, laser usually cost around RM15k++ , peels around RM400++ and other procedure will cost you around RM400++ so just be prepared with that amount of money.

4. Good skincare products for your skin type
This is one thing that people like me could do for ourselves considering I am not rich to run to the dermatologist all the time.  Please check out the type of skin one has before thinking I want this this this this this and the endless list goes on for you. Of course everyone want a flawless skin (who don't right?) but the first step of knowing your skin is to know the type of skin you have and your age.  Do not just figure out your skin type just from one opinion.  Please get a professional help and what I mean is see a dermatologist if your are really unsure of your skin type.

What I mean by good skincare products NO, you DO NOT NEED to use 15 products a day.  Depending on your skin type, using a few products is more than enough.  No use of 'drowning' or force feed your skin.  Combine with a balanced diet and lifestyle, your skin will change its type soon.
Not every brands is good for everybody so you will need to do some research first before actually trying it out.  Don't just run and buy the products just because everyone raves about it.  Trust me, I have been there and I do felt 'cheated' so it is better to wait and research on it first. After all, you only have one face and skin.

  1. Thanks for sharing! Mm must everyone have a dermatologist? I think go for regular facial sessions should be good too. Last point is good, but I think most people would find it hard to find the product/brand that suits them. I'm very skeptical in trying new products... x

  2. Thanks Angelus. The Korean celebrities do have a dermatologist each and from my experience, my friends who see dermatologist would not go for facial. They even go to see their dermatologist for clog pores and for opinions on skincare products to try. They would not keep trying the products alone without going to see the dermatologist. If your skin is already good with the current skincare products, it is best not to change the entire products as it sure can create havoc.

  3. I think a really good point is starting to care about your skin early and keep a constant routine. Otherwise it wouldn't really matter what you use or who your dermatologist is.
