I have not mention before that my low self esteem when it comes to my face is acne marks. I was born and raised in a conservative environment and taking care of the skin is definitely out of the picture. My mum never use any skin care before all her life. The only makeup she own and applied before on her face is on her wedding day. It’s a good thing that both my parents are born with good skin. Growing up I don’t have any skin problem, that was until secondary school. I’ve read and I was told about puberty and how the skin changes but never in my life I would foresee breakout happening to me. All I remember was my breakout wasn’t cystic acne type. Thinking back to the old days, I was thankful that I was only strike with normal acne breakout. Even so no one ever told me not to squeeze those acne, no one told me not to touch my face with my fingers and no one told me to try this product or that product to minimise acne. My brother inherited all the fair, smooth and good skin from my mum while I inherited a more rough skin appearance from my dad. So my brother still look good during his puberty time and I look like a total smush. I then discovered the wonder of 2-way foundation and secretly apply it onto my face for the last 2-years of secondary school. The foundation covered all the acne marks and I wasn’t feeling that low self esteem as I did before.
Although my complexion can be considered as fair, however I never say no to whitening or brightening products to lighten acne marks that still follows me to date. Lately I’ve been quite athletic in the “whitening Olympic” season, trying out different whitening products then I ask myself…what’s next? Time to go HD 🙂
Back in 2012 I bought myself a few CyberWhite products to use. Then in 2013 Estée Lauder launched CyberWhite HD range. This range was inspired after Estée Lauder Research, a brand that has over 25 years of expertise in brightening found that exposure to pollution, in addition to UV, can trigger a response that leads to an excess production of melanin.
