So what do I hope to achieve by investing in skincare? Like many others, I hope to
- Minimise (and hopefully eliminate) the redness of the scars left behind by acne
- Minimise the occurrence of acne
- Have healthier looking skin to a point where I do not need to sharpen my concealing efforts and maybe, *gasps*, I do not need to wear any makeup!
But ultimately, I want to have control over how my skin looks and feel.
I do not want to be at the mercy of the ‘skincare god’.
My Skin Type and the Problem Spot
I have combination (sometimes dehydrated) skin. That is, I have an oily T-zone and dry cheeks.
When I was a teenager, I had major issues battling acne on my forehead. Now, as a 30+ adult, the battle has migrated to my chin area (aka the problem spot).
The pictures are of the problem spot at its current state. I just survived an acne breakout 2-3 weeks ago so the redness in the pictures are a toned down version of what it could be. I hope in the upcoming months to lighten and eliminate the spots.
