It has been a trend nowadays to possess that smooth, fair, and spotless skin. I admit that I envy those women who have those because I'm one of the unlucky ones who suffer from the terrible disease especially for women, called PIMPLES. It's a nightmare to see a reddened portion on your face, which is beginning to form as a teeny weeny ball on your face and after it breaks, leaves a crater that should haunt you forever. There had been ways that people tried in order to avoid having such unhealthy, pimpled face. And the problem is, we don't have enough cash to spend for dermatologists. Then let's hear what a few people i interviewed has to say in terms of keeping a smooth surfaced skin. Diana Liao, a Sinag ng Kadayawan 2006 winner once shared,"Don't ever pick on or pinch a pimple. For this will only cause more redness and inflammation. This will also make the skin more prone to bacterial infection. Most of all, it will give you a scar." Moreover, another Architecture student of Ateneo de Davao University named Rayray Chin claimed that,"Simple as it may seem but the ICE PACK did me the trick. I hold the ice pack over my pimple every 3o minutes for 2-3 minutes. After which, I'll notice that the redness of my pimple simply subsided! It decreased the swelling and redness. It's a must try!" And a fresh graduate of San Pedro college named Nessily Jen Capundag, who possessed a really smooth surfaced face shared that,"Pimples is simply brought about by too much dirt accumulating all over your face. So simply rinse it off. I cleanse my face 2-3 times a day using a simple, gentle and mild soap. Just avoid the "LYE" content of any cleanser that you may be using. After which, I scrub my face with a washcloth but not too hard for I might lose the essential oils on my face." Those were such great tips that we could use to keep a smooth and clean face, minus the pimples. Let's see what you have to say.

a friend of mine swears by calomine lotion and tea tree oil. Just apply a drop of calomine lotion on the pimple and leave on overnight. Rinse. Follow up with tea tree oil on the dried out pimple and it won't return. Tea tree oil is known for it's skin healing powers. hope that info helps.

so you are from davao city? and you are studying in San pedro college? well, anyway, i guess the secret in having pimple-free, smooth flawless face is finding the right product that is "hiyang" for you. for me, i am very "hiyang" with the ponds products so all of the stuffs that i put on my face is from ponds and luckily, my face looks really glowing now. :)
