Hello my little luscious pumpkin pies. This blog has been neglected for three years and I am not quite sure if it can come out of the trauma it has gone through – but, we are going to try to revive it. By “we”, I mean me – pushing out content, and you – reading it!
Over the past three years, my life has changed drastically. I got married to my best friend and boy friend of 11 years, we bought and moved into our first home and I also got a nice change of position at work. Apart from the good things that have presented themselves, I have also experienced terrible heartaches – losing fake friends to losing my beloved pet dog, Jayboy. The latter hurt me a million times more than the former of course. I miss and yearn for him everyday.
But the good news is that, I am doing OK. I am content with my life and people in it and am sort of proud of all the accomplishments I have bagged at my age. I am doing A-OKAY.
One of the biggest changes in my life came about a year ago when a dry spot appeared on my left cheek. It started off as a tiny spot and became a bruise about the size of a penny over night. The “bruise” eventually started flaking and spread to two other areas on my face – under my left eye and above the left side of my lip. At first, I presumed it was an allergic reaction to a product I was using. So I began the long and arduous task of omitting certain products out of my regime one at a time to see which one of them could have been the trigger. That irritating process did not help in any way, shape or form as the flaking never ceased or got better. So after going through life with a flaky face for about 6 months, I decided to see a dermatologist and low and behold, I was diagnosed with eczema. I may have been the only 27 year old in the world who got diagnosed with eczema at that age. I was mortified and rather upset that I had eczema on my face and not on my body like other people did. I mean, it was on my face DAMN IT! Eventually the spots appeared here and there on my body, so, wish granted I guess.
So I was given a cream which I felt was made of Tinkerbell’s fairy dust as I saw results immediately. However, I needed to find a more, well, permanent solution to my facial eczema. After a very long time, I did research and actually studied my condition and decided that Glycolic Acid would help and I took a very hopeful leap.
Thats when I discovered two BEYOND-AMAZING products by Nip + Fab! Both these products have Glycol Acid in them. I chose to try NIP + FAB because, embarrassingly so, I heard that Kylie Jenner used their products and her skin is flawless. So yeah. A little juvenile, but DANG, the Kardashian Clan is influential. Also, the reviews were fantastic as well. The question that you may have is…
WHAT DOES GLYCOLIC ACID DO?
So basically, it is an ‘awesome-sauce’ exfoliant that will remove all the dead skin and bacteria on the surface of your skin. I have been using these products for about two months now and my eczema has completely stopped flaking and rarely flares up anymore. I wouldn’t recommend something that doesn’t work, so I honestly think these would work if you are suffering from eczema. I recommended them to a friend who had similar skin issues and it worked for her as well.
1.NIP + FAB SKIN Glycolic Fix Exfoliating Facial Pads – SGD22 on Lazada.com & USD12.95 on Drugstore.com.
This comes with 60 pads that are soaked in the product. I use one pad on my cleansed skin every night before I go to bed. It will sting a little during the first few applications.
2. NIP + FAB SKIN Glycolic Instant Fix Mask – SGD15.20 on Lazada.com & USD12.95 on Drugstore.com.
This is a clear gel serum that you will have to evenly spread on your face. Leave the product on for about 10 minutes and then rinse it off. I use this once a week – its part of my Sunday routine.
Both of these together makes your skin feel like a baby’s butt. And I highly recommend them! If you are suffering from eczema spots on your face, give these a whirl, I am confident that they will help without breaking your bank.
I hope this helped Pumpkin Pies. I miss sharing amazing things with you and I sincerely hope that you guys have been doing fine. I hope that you have reached greater heights and have reached all the goals you had set for yourself. Have a fantastic day and please feel free to clear any doubt or ask any question you may have in the comments. See you soon! MUAH!
