FACE UPDATE: Kamias (Bilimbi Leaves Extract)

Hey you guys! Just got home from our small family business and I am really tired but still in the mood to make a blog post for you guys! And today's post is to update you with my dilemma of having acne. Well, if you read my post before, you would know that I have been suffering from pimples these past few days so I took my dad's advice. Check THIS POST if you don't know what I am talking about. I have been doing this method for almost 1 month, the first 3 days of using it continuously (thrice a week) I immediately see the  result and it was perfectly fine, but I did something stupid and I think it's one of the cause why my pimples got worst! I used "soap" on my face! Because I was out of face cleanser and I just read an article about it that it makes your face more irritated and really dry which can cause acne. I know, so stupid of me. 

But just to give you an update guys, I stopped using this method not because it is not helpful, but because it is not just convenient for me to use it everyday. My dad is busy with our small business and I don't have someone to make it for me lol. So I decided to use it thrice a month just to refresh my face. 

"Kamias (Bilimbi Leaves Extract) PROS AND CONS"

PROS:
- FAST RESULT! You will definitely see the results after 3 days! Well for me, but I am not sure if it's going to be the same for everyone! 
- Kamias fruit contains a small amount of vitamins and minerals.
Considered antibacterial, astringent, antiscorbutic, febrifuge, antidiabetic, stomachic, refrigerant.
The high acid content of the juice is good for removing stains from the skin, white cloth, and also tarnishes from brass

CONS: 
- You need to have spare time to use this because you need to get the extract of the leaves.
- You can only use this at night because of its smell and it's color
- You will feel dryness in your skin after applying
- Only few trees are available here in our country


I took this photo after 1 month of using Kamias Leaves Extract but my face is better now!
 Will post a new photo on my next post! (The white thing is just a cream to lessen the redness of my pimples!)
OVERALL: It is indeed a great home remedy for pimples. You can find a lot of good reviews about this fruit but it may interact with any medications you are taking or other conditions you have. So I suggest CONSULT A DOCTOR or HEALTH PROVIDER before you eat, drink or attempt any at-home remedies.

I will update you guys to the new product that I am using right now! Stay tuned! 

So, my question for today: Have you guys ever tried using any extract leaves or any home remedies to cure your pimples? If yes! Comment down below, I want to know! It might help me too! And could you guys give me the best cleanser and moisturizer for you? :)

Keep on smiling,xx

  3. It must suck to have acne, I hope you have better skin very soon! Also, did you know a very simple and effective remedy for acne, that actually works? Take baking powder and a little bit of water, mix into a paste, and apply to your acne. Wait for it to dry and gently wash it off. It really works! It reduces redness and helps to clear acne up!

    1. Yes indeed -.- I hope so too! And thanks for the tip! I have been wanting to do that method for quite a long time but I still don't have time to buy a baking powder since I always buy other stuffs! Lol, and I just started a new product right now and I think it's helping me to lessen the pimples on my face! Stay tuned for it, I will share it here on blog! But thanks again for the tip! <3

  4. ugh i hattttte pimples! I have tried various store-bought products and even went to dermatologist where they prescribed me with some stuff, but the only thing that helped me was going to get a facial while i was in Korea. I still have some remnants of pimple left on my left side of the face, and I'm thinking about going in for more permanent solution once the spring comes and i can afford facials again haha

    1. I haven't been to a dermatologist before, my face is quite okay now so I guess I dont need to go to a dermatologist anymore but if it still goes on I might go to a doctor asap! x) But your face looks really adorable and it doesnt look like you have any pimples at all!

  10. I always have acne since young. Very bad ones. But I can never get them off no matter how much I tried. There was this one soap which costs Ringgit Malaysia 60 or 100 even for just one small bar and it was good but too expensive. I'll just wait and I believe time will do the trick!

  16. thank you so much for visiting my site.
    I had a problem with acne when I was in highschool, it was crazy!
    I managed to control it with cleaning and maintaining an oil free face (which is quite hard for me because my oil glands are too active)
    I haven't tried any natural remedies, I have used Eskinol Overnight pimple gel for years and it hasn't failed me. Due to it's active ingredient Salicylic acid, it dries up pimple fast causing a sting but reducing the inflammation and possible infection that could worsen the condition. Anyway, I want to thank you about this post, I will try this some day.. ;)

    I followed you (and I'm sorry for a lengthy comment)
    If you like my page, perhaps you might want to follow?? ;))

    1. Ohh yes, sometimes what you eat also affects your skin! If you have a pimple don't eat anything that is too oily! Well at least that's what my parents told me haha!
