Defeating Acne from Crazy Filming Schedules with EHA Skincare

Hello everyone!

Apologies for the lack of updates here… I’ve been filming 2025 for the past 3 months and the schedule has been keeping me busy! Busy is good, but it’s also good to finally have a breather. ヽ(^。^)丿 Thanks for checking back every now and then! I Lᵒᵛᵉᵧₒᵤ

Being back on a TV series is interesting. It took awhile for the reality to settle in…

It feels like a dream until…

I see the effects on my face! To be honest, I’ve been struggling with bad skin this time round. Acne became a prominent problem for me while filming 2025. The combination of a lack of sleep + dirty locations + makeup did it.

Sometimes, being dirty is the whole idea. Hahaha!

Jokes aside, the more makeup there is, the higher chance of getting acne. But luckily, halfway through the shoot, an expert from Makeup Forever (Singapore) told me that some powder foundations may not be suitable to certain skin types. She advised me to provide my own powder and brushes, just in case.

Sometimes filming schedules are so tight, it is hard for makeup artists to thoroughly cleanse their brushes. So I brought my RachelK Mineral foundation and powder brushes to work from then on, and WOW.

There was a significant difference to how my complexion was reacting!

Of course, having sensitive skin also meant other external factors caused the acne too. For example, when I’m at yoga, I tend to get pimples on my forehead because we’re instructed to rest our forehead on the mats or wall etc. LOL. Lesson learnt: Must use towel.

Being busy is part of the job. When I wasn’t filming, combat training it was.

This is an action series, so as exciting as it got, it could be slightly overwhelming at times.

Luckily I had good people around me to keep my spirits up!(*^^*) 

Both resting and relaxing is very important for the skin!

Sometimes when I haven’t had enough rest, I will help its regeneration by slathering on as much moisturiser as I can afford to.

I love this day moisturiser from EHA. Everything about it is almost perfect! If only it has stem cells! I love how there was so much thought in its packaging that it doesn’t allow bacteria to interfere. It is great also because it moisturises so well yet never clogs my skin!

Every time I find an item like that, I wouldn’t let go of it!

The Regime

1. Thorough makeup removal is the first step of my beauty regime.

I feel OCD at times because I take so long to remove my makeup, but I keep telling myself, “If you want a clean face, keep it clean”. Can’t be lazy! :p

So no matter how late it is, or tired I am, makeup removal is a staple. I use milk cleansers instead of oil-based ones as the former is a lot kinder to my skin.

2. This is followed by cleansing with EHA’s cleansing gel. These products from EHA are made in Japan and France but are under Dr Elias Tam’s strict guidelines!

The innovation behind them is so genius! This cleansing gel might look like a typical, high-grade medical cleanser, BUT it also comes with a bottle of “powder” which is actually enzymes.

These enzymes are used for breaking down bacteria. I can mix it into the facial foam to use on the problem areas. This way, I can avoid the drier areas of my face as this formula (cleanser + powder enzyme) is dehydrating. Flexible right? This is one of the reasons why I like products from EHA! They are made in order to cater to specific needs.

3. After which, I use this toner for a double cleanse.

I’ve been looking for an alcohol-free toner and this also has camomile in it! So much win!

4. Depending on whether it is day or night, I’d use either the EHA day moisturiser or Differin gel.

Differin is great. It’s like food for the skin. EHA day moisturiser is from Japan. It is so lightweight and perfect for Asian skin! Greasy no more!

After using it Differin, I see a clearer and more even-toned complexion. It isn’t as strong as I thought it would be. This also means it doesn’t get rid of acne, but controls the smaller ones.

5. Hence, I rely on Clindoxyl to do the dirty work!

This pimple cream is merciless, especially when applied in multiple coats, which I do when in my frantic mode at the sight of a huge, infected acne.

Note to self: KEEP CALM AND DON’T OVERDO IT. Hahaha.

But in that moment, I’m like “do whatever it takes to rid that son of a…” As you may have guessed, the side effect of Clindoxyl is that it dries up the skin, so try to use it sparingly!  (๑′ᴗ‵๑)

6. Also, don’t neglect your eyes.

I feed my eyes with as much eye cream as they can take – especially when I lack sleep. I know nothing substitutes sleep, but tired or not, eye creams are as essential as the skin around your eyes is most delicate. If any part of your face needs moisturizing, it’s usually the lips, followed by the eyes!

7. Last but not least, the weekly exfoliating and masking.

My mask and exfoliator is also from EHA. I’ve become a fan, indeed.

I believe you heard me rave about EHA’s eCO2 mask before and its complex innovation behind it.

But what I haven’t talked about is the LIQUID exfoliator. I’ve always been intrigued by turnaround creams and exfoliator with no beads in them. And honestly, I doubted they work as well as normal facial scrubs. But I take my words back. Liquid exfoliators are great for acne-infested or sensitive skin as beads will be too harsh (and may cause more harm than good).

The only difference is that I have to use this exfoliator on dry skin for it to work. The effects rivals that of my favourite facial scrubs. And trust me, I’ve come across a few thus far.

EHA facial

I do wish there was a shortcut for healthy skin. But the most vital factor for good skin is sleep, at least in my case, and that alone requires a minimum of 8 hours. ಥ‿ಥ

So no, there isn’t an apparent shortcut but we can cut down on the steps we take because not every product or procedure is beneficial!

Like I said, don’t overdo it! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ  Keep the faith and good luck!
