No filter, no cover ups.

Never be afraid to show your flaws, no fliter, no cover ups! ✨

It’s one of the hardest lessons I have learned in dealing with acne and scars. It’s hard to be so real and just be out there looking so raw without concealing any of my imperfections most especially in the world we live in where people notices your flaws first rather than what is good about you.✨

It’s normal to feel afraid of rude comments, feel sad of people pre judging you based on how you look and to feel that urge of wanting to fit in with the standards of “beauty” that the society dictates us.✨

But the question is, why do their opinions matter? It’s because YOU let them matter, wherein fact you are impressing the wrong people. The truth is, even if how hard you try, if they really don’t like you, they still won’t like you even if you are already “perfect” and they will always have something to say so what’s the point of being “perfect”. ✨

You are loved and appreciated by your family, friends, and people who knows your worth beyond your physical appearance. That’s what matters most. Stop seeking attention and pleasing people that won’t matter in the long run. It’s better to be loved by who you truly are rather than to be appreciated of your “fake fabricated image.”✨

Make the brave move! Take little steps first, Do the groceries bare faced, try to meet a friend without wearing any make up on or just simply take a no filter selfie and post it on social media. Trust me, it feels so liberating to just be real! ✨

Remember, it’s ok not to be perfect. Aim for progress not perfection.✨

Love,

Boy Pimple

PROUD OF MY SCARS!

Be proud of your flaws and imperfections, it is what makes you unique.

Do not let those over filtered and unrealistic photos you see on social media affect or even question your self worth because there is no truth to that “perfection” it’s either half baked or totally fake!

You are a wonderful person and there is so much more about you than those zits and imperfections you have.Always choose to see the good side in you, what you’re good at and your strengths. You need to believe in yourself first, because if you don’t, who else will.

Don’t let insecurities sink on you because you might end up miserably unhappy. Stop comparing, focus on your own growth and progress!

Embrace your flaws, lift yourself up and live your life!

Soar high!

What your acne is telling you!

Lately, I observed that I have been getting pimples over and over again in just one to two areas of my face. That’s why I did a little research and I found out that there is such thing as “face mapping” this has been used even before we were born and until now. See google for more information!

Your pimples can be a warning sign that some areas of your body needs a little more of attention. Well for me, I usually have pimples on my chin which means I have a bit of a problem on my small intestines. I should be more careful with what I eat, add a little fiber and more detox. Aside from my chin, I also get zits on my nose, based on the photo it shows how desperate I am for true love! haha. I guess it’s more stress related. I have been juggling so many things these past few weeks, irregular sleep and been thinking a lot lately.

What to do? I think taking quick breather helps, learning to enjoy the process of what I’m doing instead of stressing over it and most importantly I should manage your time well to avoid or even minimize stress!

Solving your acne problem is not just really all about topical creams and supplements, it’s also very important to listen to what your body needs.

Hope this can help you.

How to be happy even with ACNE!

   I committed suicide because of acne! Yes, you read it right. Not everyone would understand but suffering from acne really affected my self esteem, mind set and self worth. My acne started when I was in high schooI, the supposed to be “happiest point of a student’s life” but for me it was terrible, I was not able to enjoy much my high school days, didn’t have the confidence to join clubs and school competitions thinking I was not good enough because of how I look, didn’t attend family affairs and all sorts of public gatherings, was very selective in making friends, I felt worthless as a person and the saddest part was I felt UNLOVED and UNAPPRECIATED. I was depressed.

         The pain was just too much to handle for my young self and being happy seems to be so hard during that time. I have no one to talk to and share the pain I was going through because I know most of the people can’t relate and in my fear that my friends might think my problem is just too petty for them to even bother listening.

This is not being exaggerated, this is an honest confession from a guy whose life revolved on it, like getting rid of acne and pimples was the only thing that mattered. But trust me, there is always hope no matter what, Let me share to you effective ways based on my experience that helped me to bounced back and start being happy again even with acne.

1. EMBRACE YOUR FLAWS

This is not an easy thing to do but this is the best way to start a happy life. Look at yourself in the mirror, do a “self check” and be brutally honest with your own self. Acceptance of who you are, what you are, what you are not capable and capable of doing, should start within you!

To live happy in the present, you must learn to love and appreciate yourself for who you are and loving yourself includes accepting even the not-so-great parts of yourself either physically or your attitude. Keep in mind that stressing too much of your acne and imperfections won’t help you, will only worsen your pimples because of “stress hormones” your body releases when you overthink and every time you are depressed. Stop stressing out, it will only cause more pimples from popping out!

Think of this, who will love or appreciate you if you don’t even love yourself enough. Show the world there is much more in you!

Decide to accept yourself now! It’s a process, don’t rush things.

2. DON’T COMPARE

Constantly comparing your yourself to others would always make you feel less of a person. When you see someone who is flawless and pore less on social media you start to feel bad and question why you don’t have it and as a result, your self confidence dwindles down. Most of the times it’s easy to take for granted the things we have because our attention are more focused on all the things we want or the things we don’t have. Keep in mind that there are things you have and you can do that others don’t have.

Instead of comparing yourself, think of ways on how you can improve yourself to be better and feel even better! Focus your attention on “self improvement”.

Appreciate what you have and make the most of it!

3. YOU ARE NOT ALONE

Talk to people whom you think can understand you. If you see another person suffering from acne, make friends and start a conversation. It’s always best to share insights and stories with people who can relate and understands what you are going through. You can exchange best practices that worked on your skin, you might learn a lot from each other and would make you feel better knowing you are not alone. You can also join different acne groups online that allows you to share your experiences and read words of encouragement from people who experienced and still experiencing the same thing.

(I still get zits every now and then, but it doesn’t affect me as much as it did before)

4. EXCEL IN YOUR PASSION

Don’t let your acne stop you from doing what you love. Let it be an inspiration that you should strive harder and put an extra effort to achieve your goals! Prove to them that you are capable, you can excel and your pimples is not what defines you as a person. Trust me, when you excel in what you love doing either singing, dancing, writing and even with your job and studies you will start to feel more confident about yourself and people will start to appreciate you of who you truly are as a person. Redirect your attention to things that will make you happy and things you know you can excel! Be a person with substance.

Remember, you can do more!

5. BE WITH THE RIGHT PEOPLE

Choose the right kind of people you hang out or talk with everyday. Be with people who encourages and inspires you to be better and not with people who belittles you and doesn’t believe in you. If you constantly surround yourself with positive and happy people you will attract the same energy from them and will start learning to be happy again even though your pimples are so out there “red and swelling. “

Evaluate your friends or the people you are mostly with on how they gave impact in your life from then you can decipher who are worth keeping. Attract happiness and you will be happy!

And while doing all these things it is still important you keep in mind that life is beautiful, stop wasting your energy stressing on your acne and skin problems, there is more to life than that puss on your face. Know that you are blessed and you are responsible of your own happiness! Acne is just a phase and it should not control your life or hinder your happiness! Your flaws are what makes you unique!

1st Session: MICRONEEDLING for Acne Scars

It’s been quite long since I last posted but rest assured I’m reading all your comments and appreciate it a lot! I actually lost the drive to post pimple related stuff since it’s honestly frustrating seeing it make a big comeback on my face! There would be a time when my skin looks radiant and healthy and by the next day pimples were all over again. How is that even possible? Pimples are just so unpredictable! But you know life shouldn’t stop just because of pimples! And yes, the battle to clear skin continues!

Some of my readers sent messages on my instagram asking me to share my experience when I had my 1st microneedling with Skin Republik. I realized that I should continue writing to share my journey to give even an ounce of hope and inspiration to people who can relate on the things Im going through.

For the benefit of everyone;

“Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate the skin. A device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin. Results can include improved texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks. Microneedling may also be combined with a topical treatment, like PRP (platelet rich plasma) or another vitamin-rich serum.” -Real Self

Please do expect unfiltered photos on this post.

So here it goes,

To start, I’m going to show you how my face looks like before the procedure. As you can see both sides of my face has visible acne scars. Combination of ice pick scars, back scars and rolling scars as well. Sad right? Plus there are red active pimples adding color to my pale face which makes me Boy Pimple, your friendly superhero! Haha.

First step, they have to clean your face with a facial wipes and a special cleanser to erase traces of oils, dirt and make up if any. They want to make sure your face is clean before starting the procedure. Right after, they will put topical anesthesia and cover it with a thin cellophane or whatever you may want to call it and let it stay on your face for 30 to 40 minutes. This is the most boring part, you can just sleep or watch a video while waiting. When your face starts to numb that’s when they will start the actual procedure.

Then their comes the magic wand which has tiny hair thin like needles inside it which will be moved all over your face focusing on the area that needs more attention or most flawed. Mine was more on the cheeks. The goal is to have micro wound for faster absorption of serum, to promote collagen production and growth of new skin. Don’t panic if you can smell or perhaps see blood starts to appear on your skin, it’s part of the whole process.

How does it feel? You won’t feel much pain because of the anesthesia but you can still feel the tiny needles on your face and hear the weird sound of the device. It feels like big ants are crawling on your face minus the itchy feeling afterwards. Everything is tolerable.

That’s me on my halloween costume! haha. As what you can see there are still traces of blood and face turns red since it’s swelling a bit.

Trust me it looks painful but it’s not.

I also had PDT after microneedling. What is PDT? Read on.

PDT Acne TreatmentPhotodynamic therapy (PDT) is a multi-use light activated system for destroying abnormal cells and affecting the function of overactive sebaceous glands which are a root cause of acne. Google

Allow me to share with you excerpts from Skin Republik when they posted #MySkinRepublikJourney on their page.

Day 1 of Denisse Aldrin after his first microneedling session. #BoyPimple

Refined pores.
Pimples dried up.
Redness starts to subside.
Dead skin starts to peel. (Nose and chin area)
Complexion and skin texture improved.

Update: 2nd Day after the 2nd Microneedling session of Boy Pimple Denisse Aldrin

Redness starts to subside.
Cystic pimples dries up.
Skin starts to rejuvenate and reveal new skin.
 Acne scars are less visible.

Day 4 of Denisse Aldrin after his first microneedling session. #BoyPimple

Cystic pimple dried up.
Face starts to macro peel (cheeks, forehead, chin) Zoom in photo to see it clearer!
Redness is just 30% visible.
Complexion is clearer and skin texture is refined.
Shallow acne scars are less visible.

Day 10 of Denisse Aldrin after his first microneedling session. #BoyPimple

Lesser pimple growth. Pimples that popped up also reduced in size.
Face is clearer after micro peeling of concerned areas.
No more visible redness
Complexion is more clearer and brighter.
Acne scars are less visible.
Face is more firmer and tighter.

I really recommend Microneedling for acne prone skin, it can help lessen acne growth and makes acne scars less visible and with regular sessions scars will totally fade. It’s not just for acne scars, it can also help improve the appearance of wrinkles and aging skin.

Note, please don’t expect miracle after the 1st session. It would require 3 to 5 sessions to get optimum results.

Just a gentle reminder

Don’t let your pimples stop you from pursuing your dreams! Pimpled or not, keep pushing!

Thank you for reading.

Beautederm: Dries up pimples in 3 days!

Weeks ago I was hospitalized because of amoeba. I don’t know exactly why, where or how I got it. Some says it’s from food or either water but regardless of where I got it, the pain was just too much that I decided to go to the hospital, just because I’m afraid I will get dehydrated. For three days and even after I was discharged from the hospital the doctor prescribed high dosage of antibiotic and medicines, I was literally on drugs and on high most of the time, which caused me to be too lazy to even care how I look like. So that’s how it feels like to be on “high”.

Due to me being so lazy, pimples took advantage of the situation. They started popping out without me noticing it that much. When I was back on my normal sanity I realized that I am already a “Breakout Star” with more than 5 big, red and block buster pimples.

It was too big that even near sighted folks can see it from afar clearly! Yes, it was that big! I was feeling furious about it since I have hosting commitments and 2 photo shoots within the week. You know that feeling when you’re trying to look good but it seems like your face doesn’t cooperate that much!

Ms. Kharnelia of Beautederm Southern Mindanao suggested to use their blemish fix spray for faster healing of zits and it didn’t fail me, in just 3 days my pimples shrinked in size, it started to dry up and eventually just left pimple marks on my face which also started to fade out because of its micro peeling effect making it less visible. I just discovered that It can also be used as spray for back acne or any other areas that has body acne.

It’s now my favorite miracle product for my stubborn acne problems! If you’re looking for a quick fix, this is the right product for you!

Thank you Beautederm for saving me!

Beautederm 7 Day Challenge

I was supposed to share this like a month ago when I started using Beautederm apparently, there’s so many things going on and I have been working hard for a new project! You guys will know about it for sure! Soon! I actually received a lot of messages asking me what happened with my face while using Beautederm, And yes, here I am a bit late but still sharing my “7 day challenge” with Beautederm. I decided to take the challenge in my hope that it could be the answer to my acne problems and it didn’t fail me.

As you can see, there is really visible improvement on my face, pimples reduced in size and number, face is less oily and some pimple marks are not that visible anymore probably because of its micro peeling effect! If you’ll ask about my pimple scars? Well that’s a different story with a more expensive treatment that requires for me to save even more!

In my 7 days of using Beautederm, there’s still pimples popping up but not the “red and big with puss on top kind of pimple” this time it’s just the smaller ones that heals quickly and more treatable .

What I also love about it Beautederm is it has a complete set for a skin care regimen. It actually exceeded the basic one since it has 3 creams you need to apply on your face each night with 5 minutes interval. It’s tedious but worth it.

prodcyt.

Overall, I’m satisfied with my Beautederm experience.

To you reading, don’t give up! You’ll find the right product on your face just be really careful with any products you try. I suggest you research well before trying anything. Know the ingredients by heart, read the labels!

Dont forget this: Your acne doesn’t define you. Stay focused with your goals, dont let it stop you! Stay kind, don’t feel insecure, focus on what you already have and enhance it!
