We both have dry skin, pimples, and black heads. I'm just curious on how to treat these kinds of predicaments ()... If there are products on which you think are highly effective and safe, please keep us posted. Here in the Philippines, we don't really have products that are most likely common to other countries that are usually seen on youtube. So help us guys...

Do they sell Biore products in the stores where you live? They make pore strips, which are great for blackheads. You put them on your nose, or even your forehead and chin, let it set for about ten minutes, and then pull them off. You can see how much dirt and how many blackheads it has pulled out. Sounds gross, huh. But a person can tell if they work by using them. I have never used the ones for the forehead or chin, but I know they do sell them. And having used the ones for the nose, I can say they are really good. Just be sure to put them on nice and tight.

I think we don't have that here in the Philippines. Is it expensive? It sounds gross but I'm very interested to it.

No, it isn't expensive. I mean it's not like a couple of bucks, but it isn't like 15 dollars either. It's in between. You could buy it online if some place ships to your country. The good thing about it being gross, is that you have visual proof it works.

I so much agree... How many times are we required to use it anyways? Sorry if I sound so desperate...

hmm..do you have oatmeal available? sometimes a paste made of oatmeal will clear up bad skin.you could try that.. and sometimes a mild citrus/water wash on the oiliest part of the skin.

Thanks much scarlet_woman. We have oatmeals here but I'm not pretty sure if the product's great.

I don't know what to suggest, as I am not from the Philippines but all I can say is, have you a chemist or shop as to where you buy medicines? Because sometimes if you ask them behind the counter they can normally advise you of certain things, that would be good to cure these problems. Sometimes just a good facial scrub that maybe is medicated can work, and exfoliate the skin at the same time.

The problem with the sales ladies are they suggest products that were really not that effective. They just advice us to use it for the sake that their products will be sold.

I use propolis(bee product). Used it for foot fungi, black dots and it's safe to spray it on your mouth wounds. But don't use it for large areas cause you'll have trouble washing it off it sticks like glue. Really unique cure for many things if you can get your hands on.

Thank you very much slovenc1 unfortunately, I don't think that it's available here in the Philippines.
