Comment on What Is This Weird Bump On My Eye? by Stephanie R http://theprettypimple.com/diagnose-eye-bump-milia-chalazion-stye-xanthelasmas/#comment-22196 Sat, 29 Sep 2018 02:58:38 +0000 http://theprettypimple.com/?p=4621#comment-22196 In the end the skin softened enough and it burst. It was a bloody mess..... and I still have a scar on my eye lid and small patch where my eye lashes never grew back. Very humbling experience! Best part of the whole thing was my Mom asking what the doctor said and I was so overwhelmed and upset about looking like Quasimodo that I told her it was a chinchilla!]]> Senior year of college I met one of my greatest foes. The chalazion! My pcp prescribed an antibiotic eye drop as a precaution until I could get in with my normal ophthalmologist. Turns out I was allergic to said drops. My eye swole shut and the chalazion grew bigger by the day. My ophthalmologist gave me another drop and told me to apply warm wet compresses. He didn’t recommend removing it as it would leave a scar. I worked a few hours a week as a nanny and modeling inventory/ managing a boutique. I wore an eye patch to get around explaining what was going on. 😂 In the end the skin softened enough and it burst. It was a bloody mess….. and I still have a scar on my eye lid and small patch where my eye lashes never grew back. Very humbling experience! Best part of the whole thing was my Mom asking what the doctor said and I was so overwhelmed and upset about looking like Quasimodo that I told her it was a chinchilla!

Comment on 13 Ways To Get Rid Of Your Dark Spots by Monse http://theprettypimple.com/13-ways-get-rid-dark-spots/#comment-21150 Tue, 11 Sep 2018 10:55:10 +0000 http://theprettypimple.com/?p=2817#comment-21150 I had 2 dark brown spots on my cheek, I tried a lot of products and homemade remedies, nothing worked. I also had microdermabrasion with little improvement. I bought dermalmd lightening serum, put it on the spots at night, felt little tingling but woke up with big dark red/brown circles, freaked out but kept using it for 5 days morning and night. The skin got very dry it almost looked like scabs, I moisturized like crazy (coconut oil), the skin peeled off and was a little pink but within few days after peeling my skin is back to normal and spots are gone. It is very strong, I would not use it all over my face, just spot treatment.

Comment on A Razor To The Face: The Low Down on Dermaplaning by Jennifer http://theprettypimple.com/shaving-face-what-is-dermaplaning/#comment-20759 Wed, 05 Sep 2018 01:20:43 +0000 http://theprettypimple.com/?p=3701#comment-20759 I had dermaplaning done, it was the first time I’d had any type of skin treatment so I didn’t know what to expect. The esthetician explained the process to me so I knew what to expect but she also explained what she was doing as she went along. It was incredibly relaxing and I was shocked when she showed me what was removed. She told me I had fantastic skin to begin with (I don’t have any skin problems, but I was curious what dermaplaning could do for my skin so my dermatologist recommended a few people she trusted to recommend and I purchased a spa package. It was fantastic) but until she recommended a few products for my skin I didn’t have a “routine.” Just took my makeup off at night and washed my face after. I noticed an immediate difference after I started adding a moisturizer. A few years later I’ve become diligent with making sure I’m being proactive with my skincare. I didn’t think I had problems but I still should have treating my skin every day. I know this now. If I don’t use a facial moisturizer after washing my face or getting out of the shower my skin feels tight after drying. Sort of like it’s yelling: HEY! You forgot something!
