Skin Diary Update

Hello everyone! How are you guys? I hope everyone's okay and having a good, fun weekend.

We've been having a very hot weather lately..it is really summer already...although I love summer personally, but my skin doesn't...If you have been following my Skin Diary Update posts, you probably know already that I have been experiencing some rashes on my face and chest because of the heat...

Well, I went to my doctor early this morning to have another checkup so that she can see if my skin improved with the new clarifying toner she made for me...sadly, it just helped with my acne alone..I am now totally acne-free which is a great news for me but it would be nicer if my rashes went away with it too hehe ^_^

Anyways, when she checked on me earlier, I still have a lot of rashes especially on my forehead (I think it's worse than last week since it's been hotter lately)...She explained to me that since we can't control the weather, we'll just try to control the temparature of my face...hehe now, that's the way to think :)

So, with this said, I need to apply cold compress on my face 3x a day, 3-5 minutes each time. The cold compress is just a face towel dipped with ice-cold water...then after tmy skin cooled down, I will apply a solution for the rash...She told me that she made it again (after she stopped making them bec. no one needed it for quite sometime) because a lot of her clients are also experiencing the rashes due to the heat...We are really crossing our fingers that by helping my skin to cool down, it will have the chance to recover and hopefully, my rashes will gradually disappear.

I am just so lucky that I work in a place that has air-conditioner...I don't know what will happen to me if I don't spend my 9 hours in a cool place.

I am scheduled to be back to the dermatologist in 2 weeks..I'll update you guys..sorry, I can't do FOTDs coz I still can't put makeup on...

Oh, before I say goodbye, I just want to share with you all that my youngest sibling, my only sister, Mei, graduated last Thursday! Yay! Congratulations to my parents coz no more tuition fees haha and conratulations to my sister for being able to finish college smoothly.

*Even though we used the beauty shot mode here, I can still see my rashes haha..Oh, we bought contact lenses from EO last week..it's in a buy one take one promo so we decided to get colored ones...I wore "coffee" and my sis wear "ultramarine"...What do you think? does the contacts look nice? I really thought "coffee" can make me have the eyes of the Cullens but it became green on me when I wore it haha ^_^
Here's a happy shot with our parents after the graduation ^_^

CHECK OUT MY 1st CONTEST HERE ^_^

Till my next post! Happy weekend! ^_^

Oh no I hope your rashes go away soon! I don't get rashes but I get really red and itchy all over whenever I sweat! So I hate the heat too. :(

Re the lenses, I love the color your sister's wearing, maybe you should try that color too! Bet it would look great on you. :) You and your sister are both super pretty.

Try Freshlook ColorBlends in Honey if you want Cullen-like eyes. Turned my peepers a *shocking* shade of orange-ish brown. ^_^

Thank you for the suggestion, Nathalie!
