How did your lovely weekends go? Mine went a little more than interesting this weekend because I was participating in the Nike Run….. NOT as a participant! Hahaha. I was skating around, carrying X-mini to cheer the runners on. Oh gosh I love it when I can skate however fast I can and still not feeling tired like how running would cause me too.
Oops going off track too much! Above was a photo taken at the event itself and as usual, I do not have any makeup on. This is even more so when I know I’m gonna be doing a little bit of exercise and I hate it when my perspiration destroy my makeup. My skin was yet well-protected by the DRx tinted sunscreen SPF 30+. But take a closer look! How does my skin fair!?
I’m gonna give it a 9/10.
All thanks to my skin guardian – The DRx Clinic.
Let’s do a recap from the first day I joined the DRx Clinic.
The skin problems I had were:
2. Small tiny pimples = red spots
3. LARGE pores
4. Oily skin on T-zone
5. Breakouts (a few huge pimples) during the period of the month
And the results?
My blackheads have tremendously reduced, likewise for tiny little pimples around the face. Pores have greatly reduced in sizes and have became much finer. Breakouts no longer pose threats to me because huge pimples are rare visitors nowadays, even during the time of the month (menses)! There’s much lesser red spots around my entire face too.

And I bet the following illustration would scare YET impress you.
Yes, look at the number and severity of blackheads to begin with. And look at the amazing result now!!! (^.^)
Few days back, I returned to DRx for an evaluation of my skin and see what are the new issues I face. Originally, the products prescribed to me by Dr Yanni are to rectify my skin problems such as large pores and blackheads. On my second consultation, I was prescribed intensive highlighter to improve my uneven skin tone, so that leaves me with Comedone Formula, Intensive Highlighter and Blemish Formula. Fortunately, these products are marvellous in eradicating the skin’s enemies. But unfortunately, they can be pretty dry in nature. They tend to dry up my skin a little too much than it could cope. Sometimes, I feel the tightness on my skin.
Which is why, a follow-up consultation is extremely essential!
Everyone thinks that one single consultation to get you the DRx products is good enough. But it is important for a follow up because the doctors are the best people to decide the change in your skincare regime. After using any range of skin care products, it’s logical to evaluate the progress and decide if a change in the skincare regime is required.
As for me, Dr Yanni decided to return me Max-C (my favourite cos it’s an anti-oxidant that encourages collagen!) and prescribed me an extra eye cream. I’ve also requested to try out the tinted sunblock (SPF 30+) so that it gives me a finished dewy look without any use of foundation. The photo below shows the effect of applying the tinted sunscreen.
I really like how it gives me coverage even without me putting any foundation on. I just don’t really like to cover my face with too much makeup, every single day. However, the sunscreen is a little greasy so I finished with some loose powder to mattify my face, and I’m all ready to go. The effect can last for about 6 hours!
Now after solving my blackheads issue, let’s look forward to see if there will be a change to my eye bags/dark circles/fine lines! I cannot believe at the age of 21, fine lines have started to form. This really shows how dry my eye areas are.
1. Foaming cleanser (170ml)
2. Toner (170ml)
3. Comedone Formula (25ml)
4. Blemish Formula (25ml)
5. MAX C (35ml)
6. Acne Spot Lotion (6ml)
7. Liposomal Sunscreen SPF 30+ (60ml)
8. Hydrator (35ml) (not in photo)
9. Eye Cream (25ml) (not in photo)
Here’s some photos of my daily life. Take notice of my skin!
Looking forward to my next consultation!
