And HELLO again! In Part 1 of Skin & Life After Facial Incident: What You’ve Always Wanted To Know, I answered questions on reasons why I cannot disclose its identity, the legal implications, some skin updates, and my thoughts on makeup.
In Part 2, I shall answer more questions pertaining to my skin, doctors I’ve been to, why I’ve stopped going to some, and more.

Q: Why did you stop going to Dr Joyce Lim clinic/Clifford clinic/any other clinic?
A: Dr Joyce Lim played a huge part in my recovery from the allergic reaction. She made the correct diagnosis, gave the right meds and by the next day my skin had stop flaring. No more new barnacles, and old pustules were starting to dry up. I continued to see Dr Joyce for a year and did microdermabrasion and chemical peeling for my wedding. I had such great skin during that period.
Then somehow the products stopped taking effect and I started to have some acne again. I guess my skin didn’t take to her products anymore.
I didn’t see any doctor for a period of 6 months until I got to know Dr Gerard Ee from Clifford Clinic. I was with the clinic from January to June 2015 and wrote a detailed documentation of my journey during the period. Then suddenly my skin decided it didn’t like the drugs and products prescribed anymore too. Sheesh, such fickle-mindedness.
I don’t think any skin doctor is superior or inferior to another, it’s just a matter of finding the right one at the right time.
Skin changes, and so should our choices.
