My Skin Journey With Annabelle Skin | Combating Acne & Sensitive Skin (Part 2)

Due to hormonal imbalance, i have been suffering from bad bout of jawline breakouts recently. Once again, i turned to Annabelle Skin to address my skin woe! Had enough of those large, deep  and painful cystic pimples on my jawline!

A hidden gem in the Adelphi – Annabelle Skin aims to serve as the trusted skin and body care companion to its clients as they go through different stages in life by providing quality treatments, effective results and personalized service. Annabelle Skin strongly believes that everyone’s skin condition is unique. Each skin and body treatment will be customized accordingly with the combination of skillful manual methods with advanced scientific beauty technology, using high quality products made with natural ingredients from Europe to produce the best and most effective results. 

Grace accessed my skin before treatment and besides jawline breakouts, my skin feels warm to the touch. It is never easy treating acne prone sensitive skin as acne-fighting products tend to be drying. However, i felt safe entrusting my skin to Annabelle as they know what’s best for me and customized a facial treatment that best addresses my skin issues .

Grace started off with skin cleansing with the use of Sensi-Bel Delicate Cleanser followed by Sensi-Bel Delicate Tonic to remove remaining residues. Sensi-bel Delicate is Dr.Belter’s special care line for long-term or temporarily hypersensitive skin. All products are dermatologically tested, free of colourants, perfume and official preservatives. It also contains Derma Lipid-Membrane Structure (DLS) components, a top grade skin-identical cream base without emulsifiers that does not cause skin irritation and ensures penetration of active ingredients for healthier skin.

Because my skin is sensitive, there’s no exfoliation done this time and Grace went straight to extraction! As much as i hate extractions, it has to be done to remove blackheads and clogged sebum. Over at Annabelle Skin, they do not promote squeezing to decongest pores. Extraction is done using a special extraction tool from Switzerland together with special technique to remove blackheads and clogged sebum. As a result, it is not as painful and red as compared to conventional extraction. Moreover, the beauticians are all well-trained so they are really fast and skillful in removing impurities. After extraction, Grace sterilized my skin with a high frequency machine to kill bacteria on the skin’s surface.. As Grace knew that i am TTC-ing, she checked if i am comfortable with the use of the high frequency machine. I love how attentive and caring everyone at Annabelle Skin are!

After extraction and sterilizing my skin, Grace applied Dr. Belter Intensa Ampoule No. 7 – Aloe Vera Concentrate on my skin and neck area. This ampoule has calming, protective and balanced properties of “lily of the dessert” extract to pamper and benefit particularly tender, sensitive or damaged skin.  Normally ampoule will always sting my skin but the Dr. Belter’s ampoule doesn’t.

While waiting for ampoule to be fully absorbed, Grace applied a later of  Dr. Belter Intensa Mask, with an ultrasonic equipment to aid absorption of the products and to cool down the temperature of my sensitive skin.. This treatment will help to refine pores, treat skin redness and to subside the appearance of blood capillaries. To finish off the entire treatment, Grace applied Dr Belter’s Vital-C Mask which contains Acerola extract and Vitamin C as active ingredients. The mask is power in texture and it is to be mixed with water to form a rubber-like peel-off mask.. Cold water was being used while preparing the mask and i love how cooling and soothing it felt on my skin. 🙂

Straight after treatment, skin redness reduced immediately and skintone became brighter. Always love the post facial glow and radiance! With most of the clogged sebum removed, skin feels so much smoother!

On the next morning, one of my cystic acne (which has been there for 1 week plus) on my jawline flatten and is less painful to the touch. On some of the areas whereby extraction were done, there’s minor purging which went away by the 3rd day.

After each and every treatment at Annabelle, i felt that it helps to strengthen skin’s resilient. With the treatments, it brought about improvements such as reduced skin sensitivity, less redness and improved skin clarity. Gone was the days whereby i have really bad skin a few years back. You can see the difference for yourself from the picture below 🙂
