My Elixir of Youth

Recently I turned 26, which is well, no biggie.

Having your birth day at the end of the year makes you feel younger than your same-year peers 'coz it's like you're the last one to 'age'.

The sucky part of is, however, you only get to enjoy your new age for a very short time.

I just turned 26 last month, which means I only have a month to enjoy being 26.  'Coz next month, I have to get accustomed to introducing myself as 27, even though I just fucking turned 26.

So like, shit, I have to start telling people I'm 27 starting next month.

Now that I'm passing my 'mid-twenties' age, like every vain, insecure woman out there, I'm bent on looking for the fountain of youth.  Even though I'm pretty sure I still can pass off as a retarded 17 year old when I want to.

Right? RIGHT?!
I've been pouring over beauty magazines and spending a ridiculous amount of time online reading reviews of anti-ageing serums and whatnots.

Till my Wonder Woman dermatologist told me to quit putting crap on my face.  And that over the counter products, whether drugstore or high end, don't really contain the active ingredients for it to actually work.

Honestly, I was crushed.  Like every other lazy human being out there, I want a quick fix, and eating vegetables and drinking lots of water ain't gonna cut it for me.

So even though I was prohibited to do so, that didn't stop me from my quest.  I'd thought that maybe when my acne is cured (which it is, hallelujah) I'd secretly do all the things opposite to what she told me.  And that if I get breakouts again, I'd go running and crying back to her arms.  And apologise and ask for forgiveness for my disobedience.

That was the plan though.

Till I met her again yesterday, for my fifth appointment. 

As usual, she gushed on how beautiful I was (or rather, how successful she was in curing me) and this time, she reduced my unborn-baby-malfunctioning meds to a weekly intake.

Now that my acne is gone, she prescribed me some Vitamin A serum for my facial scars.

Which is AWESOME.  I no longer have to search for holy grail scar serums.

But what is much more awesome is...


The search is over!  I have found my elixir of youth!

Well, more like, prescribed.

Since humans are advised to use it under guidance, this serum must be the shit.


P/s: Will definitely do a review on this Medik8 Retinol 3 TR.  Hopefully it works though.  Bitch it has to got to work.

26 or 27, are just numbers. Don't too worry about it.

Amanda Christine Wong said...

@Birthie: Birthmark, that you? Yeah, it's just a number. No pressure at all.

Birthie said...

Yes it's me Amanda. I changed my blog name some time ago.

Amanda Christine Wong said...

@Birthmark:No wonder I don't get updates from you anymore!

Birthie said...

Sorry that I didn't inform anyone.

I still got updates from you. Imported everything from the old one. Nothing has changed so far, only more posts.
The new URL by the way,

More personal, isn't it? ;)

Amanda Christine Wong said...

@Birthmark: Yeah it is...Ok done!

Hi Amanda!

I'm just wondering, I remembered clearly that in one of your entries you mentioned that Dr. Melinda said BB cream is the most harmful substance to the face. Can you explain why? I was wondering because I thought BB cream is invented by a dermatologist. hehe thank you! :D

Amanda Christine Wong said...

Hi Natalie! Well, yeah, that's what she said. And yeah, I thought so too! 'Coz I read somewhere that Koreans use BB cream right after they have face surgery, or something like that to sooth the scars. Maybe these are the real,actual BB creams recommended by dermatologists, but now BB creams are so commercialised, we don't know what's in it. I didn't get the chance to ask her why 'coz I was too flabbergasted to ask, but i think it's because the product is too heavy on the face. Well, for my face that is, because of it's cream texture. But what i think is, if it works for you without giving you any breakouts, then it shouldn't be much of a problem. i hope my answer helps :)
