I know acne won't kill but it can surely kill your self-esteem and drown you into a deep abyss of depression sinking deeper and deeper into the whirlpool.

It sucks when you try your hardest to fix something, yet you never seems to get it done no matter how badly you wanted it to be fixed. 

When I was in my teenage years, I had this kadiri, yucky thing on my face they called ACNE. So I hop from one treatment to the next trying to get rid of my ACNE. I tried my best to be patient in waiting for results to happen and yet I have no such luck.

My classmate Brends availed of Acne treatment from a local store back in Naga that sells astringents. She applied it on her face and had a glossy reddish face after a few days. Maybe the astringent was too strong for her. But it cleared out her pimples so she kept on using them until we graduated from college. She has a very good convincing power too,  so gaya-gaya puto maya that I am, I also bought those astringents which turned out to be harmful to 16 year old girls skin. 

My skin peeled off, turned reddish and became thinner.

Years after when we already have the money to see a dermatologist, the doctor said we should avoid astringents because they strip off the skin of its natural protection.

Acne is caused primarily by clogging of skin pores due to dirt accumulation and excessive production of sebum or body oil so my dermatologist suggested for me to take pills because she said the cause of my Acne is my over active hormones. So in a few months my face cleared up but I could only take the birth control pills for my acne over a period of three months. My Acne Free Skin only lasted for (3) three months. After that period my problem came back again. Making me feel worsts than ever. I got so upset by my Acne that I started to pick on them and instead of getting rid of them I made them last longer. Geez I am so stupid! I did not only scarred my face but my life as well, because those scars made me depressed. I will cry sometimes because I felt so left out and I am embarrassed with my Acne.

Then I started using Tretinoin, which strips off my skin of the first layer and in the process making my skin thinner:-(.

Don't get me wrong, I simply believe all those commercials. I saw the commercials of those products and I was made to believe that they're all safe. Yeah, I know, you are right, I am so trusting. I believe what those marketers convey on tv and in the process makes my skin health worsts than ever before. I felt like I am a lowly individual. It is only later that I learned that prolong usage of Hormonal pills, which are mainly indicated as a contraceptive sometimes causes water retention, weight gain, mood swings, and in the long run, even breast cancer.

When I stopped using their products I had acne as big as a five centavo coins. This is a lesson learned for me I should always consult a dermatologist so I will have safe, healthy skin all the time.

Dermatologists have different Derma package that can costs up to P25,000 pesos. I wanted to avail of derma services often but they're too costly at my favorite skin care centers. I don’t want to pay and then make a trial and error. They don't have labels and I don't know id they have been tested and if they are BFAD approved products . What if they don't work out for me? I will feel bad to have my money go down the drain leaving me to my acne battle alone. What I really wanted is to treat my acne problem.
Then I learned about pro-active solution used by Hollywood superstars in treating their Acne problems. This gives me hope in treating my skin care problems. It is best to get well-tested products passing clinical trials and offers guarantee to consumers. It comes with a 60-day money back guarantee!! Imagine that! This could be the manna from heaven I am praying for. Join me in my quest for an Acne Free Skin.


Lawyer Vitaliano Aguirre apologized on national television to Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago, but insisted that he does not regret covering his ears while the senator was berating the prosecution team during yesterday's impeachment trial.

"I have already apologized to her. If I hurt her feelings for what I did, I apologize," Aguirre said in an interview with ABS-CBN News this morning.

The lawyer, however, said that he has "no regrets" with what he did during the 26th day of the impeachment trial.

"Actually I look at this that I was just made an instrument para maiparating sa mga people concerned," Aguirre said.

He said that majority of the members of the House prosecution team already feel bad because lately, Santiago would open the hearing by lecturing them.

"Marami rin sa kanila ang nagpipigil na hindi nila malaman ang gagawin para maipahatid nila ang kanilang nasa loob sa ginagawang ito," the lawyer said.

He reiterated that a judge lecturing lawyers at the opening of a trial is not part of the usual court procedure.

The lawyer, meanwhile, said that he did not mean to disrespect the Senate as an impeachment court. He added that the presiding judge, Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, has also been fair in handling the trial.

The lenten Season is just around the corner does it mean we could no longer enjoy our pizza? Well worry not pizza lovers!  Some fellow bloggers and I were invited by Angel's Pizza PR Annesy over to Angel's Pizza resto near Valle Verde. After paying our parking fee we went to Angel's Pizza.  Annesy told us they were introducing to the market Angel's pizza latest offering.
Angel's Pizza latest lenten offering is the Alici Pizza. The Alici Pizza has real anchovies with the freshest and best mouth-watering ingredients. Angel's Pizza put on its latest creation black olives, tomato and mozzarella cheese  and real anchovies which makes it a truly tasty treat. The Angel's Pizza Alici can be enjoyed two ways: 
  1. In thin Crust
  2. and thick Crust
My personal favorite is the cheese flavor pizza. Because they're not as salty as the Alici Pizza. Please expect that the Alici Pizza is salty because the olives itself is salty when you eat it. So if you don't like olives then go for more traditional flavors such as cheese, ham, etc. so you won't be disappointed. I am not allowed to eat salty food so I opted for one slice of cheese flavored pizza which I find delicious. Yes it is yummy for me.
To order from Angel's Pizza please call their Free Delivery Number 922-2222. Check out more of their menu offerings on their website.
In an effort to ensure that its patrons will enjoy their pizzas unimpeded, they have come up with their now popular Angel's Pizza VIP Cards which enable pizza lovers to enjoy eating more of their favorite pizza at affordable prices. Additionally, Angel's Pizza VIP Cards are available to anyone. You don’t have to be a member or anything like that to get a buy one take one deal! Enjoy your pizza! I got several VIP Cards from Annesy which I've given away to family and friends. It is good until August 31, 2012 only.

This is not a paid post. I am not in anyway connected with Angel's Pizza. But if eating one slice of cheese flavor pizza is classified as paid post then this maybe classified as a paid post then.
