There's something i'm definitely missing out on right? What is the world keeping from me?!?!

Why do Singaporean girls have such smooth, even skin while my skin is lumpy, pimply and uneven and discoloured like the MOON?!?!?! It's not fair! ROAR!

Please tell me what the secret is, puh plleeaaasssee????

actually i dont tink they have got great skin leh, tink is good foundation. but then again, i saw some pretty good skin on the streets, and i tink exactly like u. 1) genes 2) very exceptionally great foundation 3)the food they ate 4)hormones the reasons go on and on. none of wich i seem to have much control over, other than limiting my taste buds to healthy food. sian leh.ur skin is already goood compared to mine la, so chiil

Joline said...

yeah, i guess so.... but how come so many have such good skin?!

no but seriously. my skin condition has been quite bad. not saying that because of some slight defect, but it's really very scarred and lumpy (whiteheads and blackheads all over).

gosh joline...you must be kidding me!...you've got great skin!....but if there's an possible answer...I would say it's because they eat pretty litte...use retinol A prescribed by their skin docs...exercise....eat fresh and healthy food ... (that's what my singaporean friend is doing...and others whom I think has great skin and look great overall) the same stuff lor...eat healthy...exercise hard...

Haha, you haven't seen me in a while, girl. One side of my face is quite terrible. Endless breakouts, and bad scarring. My parents and friends have pointed it out to me.

Ever since i stopped going to my facial place (too expensive after a while), it has gotten back to being bad. I don't eat nonsense, i exercise, i have a regular cleansing regime, but no change. I'm beginning to think that perhaps my problem is hormonal. Hmm.

well...I've been studying nutrition...the cause of acne could be related to your diet...which can be "cured" with natural supplements like Brewer's Yeast(chockful of vitamin B complex)...

i saw a doc before tat said actually most adult women acne are hormonal. tink abt it, u didnt eat alot of junk food, skincare regime is same. so wats the difference? or the next alternative is u go back facial lor. no choice. recently a person pointed out to me i cant complain tat life is boring cos i haven put in effort to know more pple. haiz. ok he is right, cant expect different results if i have been doing the same things.

gal, i think u're blowing the skin condition out of proportion. i'm gonna sing the same song as everyone else: diet, exercise, hormones, genes. u can only control a few things, but u can't control genes, nor the environment, sometimes, the food too. getting enough sleep is a factor too, or nutrition - i.e. supplement your diet with vitamins, esp if you've irritable bowels.

joline said...

Right. So in sum, it's diet, exercise, nutrition. With benefits coming from food that's high in Vit B, and possibly other vitamins as well.

zenn:

i'll go back to the facial place when i have the $. :)
Ah, a wise person once said: If you want to see things you've never seen before, you need to do things you've never done before.

But of course, making life "interesting" is a subjective matter altogether, and more complex when it comes to building relationships. :)

SIM:

Thanks. :)

By the way, do we know each other?

yup, heard tat before. interesting is one ting, but isit in positive way? remember hw excited i was about hw great nov is going to be? now nov is reallly one of the most terrible mths lor. haiz.i can only wish dec will be better. as for relations, i really see no point in putting effort in pple i see no future in. in the end, i only gained a broken heart. so save the trouble in the 1st pl.

hmmm I'm thinking it's the facial that's causing you to break out!!

I used to have wonderful smooth skin until I went to FACIAL *shakes fist* they used some electricity and zap my skin...and my face was so red!! the next few days I had breakout and uneven skin!!!

the facialists call this as purging toxins...
