Today is rest day. Just like yesterday. But for today, I decided to spend some Me time. So I went to the mall. Initially, my plan was just to eat lunch and do some window shopping. But my friend Yona of Your Make Up Call was scheduled for some serious facial care at Illumina Aesthetics and asked me if I wanted to come. And since I can’t remember the last time I had my face cleaned by an expert, I decided to join her. I really need some serious facial care myself because I’m having this small rashes on my face and I don’t know what caused it. So I had it checked too. It turns out I have 3 conditions on my skin (1) Warts – a horny projection on the skin usually of the extremities produced by proliferation of the skin papillae and caused by any of numerous human papillomaviruses —called also verruca vulgaris. (2) Milia – is the technical term for small, hard, white bumps that can show up—mostly on the face—in just about anyone, including infants, teens, and adults. These frustrating yet benign bumps are incredibly stubborn, lasting for weeks, months, and sometimes longer! (3) Sebaceous hyperplasia – is the technical name for a benign bump on the skin that forms over time as a result of damage, leading to an ongoing problem with over-productive oil glands. These damaged oil glands can become enlarged and clogged in a very specific manner, displaying a soft or firm white or yellowish outer rim with a depressed center. The depressed center of these bumps is one of the primary ways you can tell you’re dealing with sebaceous hyperplasia, and not with something else such as a whitehead (milia).
So Dr. Calixtro advised me on what to do. I need my face cauterized but since I’m not prepared for that first I was adviced for some deep cleansing facial with seeweed mask and diamond peel. And I had myself scheduled for my cautery procedure next week. It feels good when you know your skin is clean deep down and you have to keep it that way. It may be a little heavy financially but it’s an investment for yourself.
